SELLING POTATOES AT S CENTS EACH w
While the general campaign for readjustment continues to grow in pa
volume, and attacks are still being made on the wage scale, figures-those th
cold, hard convincers-show that so far as the wage earner is concerned his -
cost of living remains 57.7 per cent higher than it was in 1914. This applies
to the city as well as to the country, and takes into consideration simply the
necessities of life. In many of the cities the percentage of living cost is still
higher. Potatoes in the window of at least one store in the city bear the
selling tag "5 cents each". And strangely, the people are buying them. Of
course, this is ontrageous profiteering on the part of the storekeeper, but
the continued sale is significant of the times and the psychology of the peo
ple. The cave dwellers- those that abide in so-called apartment houses,
eannot buy potatoes by the barrel. Indeed, the day has passed when they
buy them by the peck. For years they have bought by the quart-dry meas

WHAT'S THE COMBINATION?
Harry Sinclair set out in the oil business as an independent operator ar
when the great midcontinent oil field was in its infancy as to production.
Among the independets he was a pronounced success. He carried his Inter
locking companies to Wall Street, where after a time of codling his heels
in the outer offices of big business, he was admitted and let In.
Now it appears he is well within,-so far in that some of his companies ro
are not without their federated Interests with the Standard Oil Company of _r
more ancient fame.
Sinclair was recently reported as hatnIg come close to a corner on all E
the available ril land in the world. And among the available lands he was lot
fortunate enough to find ways and means to lease the Federal oil lands re- cra
served for soures of naval supply. L
Now Senator LaFollette, who is just as apt to be right as wrong, de. Asl
meads a Federal investigation into naval oil fields, ald why these oil do. sie
posits are subjected to being greatly depleted by the Sinclair exploitations. Nel
What is an independent oil operator? When does an independent be
come a comlne and the beaster of spelal grants and privileges? These
are quesileas that te "Ildependents" sueh as Sinclair c was, are asking.
Mreover, they want to know it Harry Sinclair and his companies are still
of the lndepedent" class, how is it 'that he is privileged to get on, or atI
least next to goverament oil lands which carry the "keep off the grass"
signs for them.
What's the combinaton that gets into this Federal vault of fluid gold?

TWO GOOD ANECDOTES
Anecdotes of the proper type are
rare. In a recent letter to a college
instructor in Portland Prof. Fred
9 erick J. Turner of Harvard cuts
a loose with a couple that are above
s the ordinary. One concerns the
Maine guide who was given a watch
by a friend and admirer. At the end
dof the season the guide wrote:
"That was the best watch I ever
had. Gained enough time during the
season to pay all my expenses."
Another is about a Mr. Gilkin,
who was indorsed for governor of
Colorado in an off year. In the let
tar of recommendation Gilkin's
"Mr. Gilkin is by far the best man
for the position. He was the dis
osverer of Pike's peak."
RUBBER HEELS 6OPULAR
As an example of the almost umi.
versal use of the rubber heel, con
servative figures prepared by the
Rubber Association of America show -
that 125,000,000 pairs of rubber
heels were sold in this country dur.
ing 1920. From Brockton, Mass., one
of the great shoe centers, comes the
information that 84 per cent of all
shoes made there go out equipped
with rubber heels. In one day re
cently one factory in Akron turned
at 203,138 pairs of rubber heels.
