This space contributed by
NORTHERN STATES POWER COMPANY
from Fargo Tuesday where he met the
managers of the various J. C. Penney
stores thruout this section to discuss
the mercantile situation and place
their orders with the representatives
of Eastern wholesale houses who met I
the managers at Fargo with their full
lines of samples. Manager Clapp says,
that many lines will be practically un
obtainable next year and that shoe
prices are bound to be at least 20 per:
t:ent higher next year with a possibil-!
ity that the government will restrict1
styles to three or four designs. In
some quarters there is a rumor to the
effect that all shoes will be low ones
on account of the saving of leather
this measure would effect. One line
of work shirts that formerly retailed
for 49c per garment is now being sold
at wholesale for around $14.00 per
dozen. Many other items of merchan
dise show an increase of price cor
respondingly great. There is no pos
sibility of a price reduction for years
to come, not even with the close of
the war, for it will take years for the
manufacturing plants of Europe to
become rehabilitated and again work
ing to their full capacity.
