NEW YORK.—It Is hardly (air 10 talk only of rises In prices without observing also that earnings.! too. have Increased. The earnings' of the workers arc \\nges nnd wages constitute a part of cost and hencl 1 an element of price. The great objective lo be sought Is to try to raise wages 'without raising prices. In 1033 at the low point, the average factory wage In the United States was $17.71 a week. Now it Is $22.92. That Is an Increase of $5.21 or a W per cent rise. In the same time, the cost of living has Increased 20 percent. Hsnce It will be seen thai, • so far as Ihose factory workers who are employed arc concerned, the rise In living costs has nol been ns great ns the rise in wnge costs, Causes This Is true ns lo factory workers. Ilul it Is not wholly true of clerical help or of workers In the construction Industries or government workers. H Is difficult lo say. therefore, Just' how It alfccls the Imputation as a whole. The "danger lies in tlic grave possibilities of continuing rises In the future when the ctiulllbrlum between' wn'jjc'-.and prite ; rises ; may bo'' destroyed, • - Now what are the causes of these price'Increases?
