lie PASSING Off ICE CREAM SODA FOR NICOLE MARK Saturday will be a day of «olle(i(lon for young folks Upper Alton' who might be t ing what this country need a g6od live-cent ice cream s This country once did hav good live cent soda. The em it will be marked Satur probably by a great silence. • Records In the Telegraph flee show that the five < ice .cream soda died in Up Alton, Sept. 7, 1907. If this seems like a poor tl to observe then let it; be. the analyst read all sorts of cial and economic meanings the' marking of the death of five cent soda. Actually, nob ever makes particular note things or milestones concern the kids. The anniversary of passing of the nickle Ice ere soda will do for a starter. The soda was jumped to cents on that terrible day a century ago and neither nor depression nor increased put, of cows have caused it drop again to a nickle. . The stories announcing rise carried an unpleasant that the day of upplng the p was tied with the opening Western and Shurtleff College that school year. > This was in the day before dy Roosevelt began to wave big stick and the announcem bears this out. It seems that f agencies in Upper Alton boo the price on the same day. Tr were two drug stores, a con tinnary and a bakery shop Ice cream sodas hit about cpnts these days. If you sho little you might get one for cents, and contrariwise if walk Into some places you i get a bill for 30 cents. This would Indicate a p: rise of about 500 per cent in years. It is wondered how m commodities effecting the a< It life have risen that much in that time? You can bet. that if there been anything approaching there would have been scream from the adult world. But hav 0 . there really been any squawk about the lee cream soda Jump ing 500 per cent? Nobody expects the confec tion's price to drop posthaste Nobody 'expects anything to ha|i pet) at all. But this may bring hope tha next time there are annlversar les to observe the ones Impor tant to the kids should not b lorgotten. Common sense dictates tha the 25 cent soda can't drop ti a nickle,, but the fact that trier was one 50 years ago should no be rubbed from all memory.
