The return to normalcy menus ra- turn to condition of 1919-1920, not to thou of 1619-14, according to the economist, "To expect & return of the price nd fondltlo::i of pre-war years fa merely the blindness of men In el ways looking tnlo the past for the golden age," ho declared. According tc present lndlrlloni, prices here reached their lowest lev-el end are now moving upwards, the economist stated.

Kail I might. Contrary to popular belief, wagei on the whole have fallen to a surprisingly smell extent. Here and there wages have fallen, he said, but the striking fact Is not that some wage rates hsve fallen, but wages on the whole have fallen so little, "This Is partly due to the growing strength of labor to resist wage euls. but primarily to a more alert publie conscience which feels that the average wsge earner, for his own sake and tor the sake of the community, must have a higher standard ot living than he has httd In ihe past." The preseut business depression, he declared. Is primarily financial not Industrial. "There haa been no substantial change in the underlying industrial factors," he asld. "Ab soon as the financial tangle Is un raveled, the way will be cleared for a revival ot business under conditions not very dissimilar to those at the close of the war. "We have been passing through a period of liquidation and depression, due essentially to the over-expanlson vi creon, wmch, In turn, was brought about chiefly by the con tinuation ot artificially low interest rstes after .the armistice.
