COST OF LIVING INDEX GIVEN OK Figures Run Parallel to Those of Government Iowa City--Validity of the federal government's index of cost of living has been supported by Impartial surveys, according to Prof. George R. Davies of the University of Iowa bureau of business research This was done by a committtee of the American Statistical association and the National Industrial Conference board of New York and the index of each paralleled the other closely. Certain labor organizations have stated that the increase in cost of living since the beginning of the war is nearly twice as great as the government's figures indicate. Apparently the dispute was precipitated by the fact that the cost of living has risen much faster in iome areas than in others, Prof. Davies said. "For December, 1943, the index reads 124.4, which means t h a t representative commodities and services costing SI00 in the years 1935-39 cost S124.40 at the later date," Prof. Davies declared. He said that the cost of living varies considerably from one city to another. A city having war industries which pay high wages will exhibit rapid price increases, even though OPA regulations are strictly enforced. "This variability is probably the main reason why the government's figures are challenged. When issued for a given city, they are not necessarily true of every locality in that city and as issued for the whole country they are not necessarily true of every city," said Prof. Davies 2 IN SCHOOL RACE Clarion--The nomination period for the a n n u a l school election closed Friday with only 2 candidates in the race.

Urge Control of Syphilis After War Des .MIMIICS. i.f)--Greater process in venereal disease control can be made in Iowa after the war it' the f u n d s arc available for the work and if there is a eon- imicd public demand for it. Dr. A. C. Woofter of tile state h e a l t h department said Thursday. "There probably has been an increase in the prevalence of these diseases since the war started, because the diseases tend lo increase in war time, but the progress has been satisfactory for war-time conditions." he asserted. "What the conditions w i l l be like in post-war days depend upoi 2 factors: S u f f i c i e n t .local, slutc and federal f u n d s for the rjrofiran and how badly the civilian population wants the program continued. But given the money am the demand, greater progress cai be made." Dr. Woofter expressed belie Hie diseases would not he an} easier to control after the war and thai there would always h d i f f i c u l t i e s in control, lie added lowever, that greater progress .Iso could be made on the basis if closer co-operation between )hysicians and public health vorkers. Statistics show there were 2,739 ·ases'of syphilis reported in Iowa n 1940, in 1341 there were 2,403, n 1942 there were 2,704 and ill 1943 there wore 2,5G9. Dr. Woofler ittributcd the increase in 1942 to better reporting and more interest .n control. Last year, he said, there was a drop in Ihe number of cases bin some increase in early infectious cases reported. "From all indications there has been a definite decline in syphilis in the rural areas, but this is not true in the u r b a n areas because where there is n greater concen- t r a t i o n of population there is a greater prevalence of the disease, he asserted. As to gonorrhea, the statistics show 1,:!27 cases were reportec in 1941, there were 1,548 in 1942 and 1,708 in 194X One of tho factors in t h i s increase also was bel- ter reporting. Dr. Woofter said.
