That is. packers huvo boosted their markups for beef .",1 per cent above that of the previous year when there was no prtco control, and 12 per cent more than the price increase charged by retailers to consumers. In spite of the record amount of beef now on feed and slaughtered, prices are so high that a good share- of the- population cannot afford to eat meat In the quantity which so high a production should permit. We have no doubt but that prices are reacting very unfavorably for retailers and certainly the public, In farming arras as we'll as in Industrial centers, Is greatly concerned about the situation. We have pointed out before that with current high wage levels and tho high basic commodity prices, we cannot expect any drastic reduction in prices. Yet we feel that our economic system -will not stand for long the vast inequities now existing In the prlco structure. It Is difficult, of course, to arbitrarily set prices or to say what profit margins should be. But we believe that good volume of consumption maintained by reasonable profit margins and as low prices as is possible under existing wage and commodity figures, is the best — and only — guarantee of a continuing prosperity. We hope our Industrial leaders, in the packing industry as well as in other major industries, will base their profit ambitions on this widely-held theory rather than on -the theory that now is the time to gouge the public for the last possible penny of profit. national Sunday school convention held at De= Moines Sunday.

We doubt If you'd want to sell it, however, for we've had an order for one for several months. Recently, Mrs. John Reimers wrote from Genoa, Neb., that slip purchased a copy In a second-hand book storo in Omaha several years ago. discovering It while browsing through. The price was $10 then. On the front page was a note In pencil: "John: keep this book in the family, they are hard to get." It was signed "Joe." She added: "H appears that John or his descendants did not keep the book. If Joe knew how much I appreciate the rare book, I am sure he would not feel badly about John having sold the book." Mrs. Reimers Verne Carson attended the Inter- presented with a pin.

From now on, it's going to be Just breakfast, dinner and supper.
