•THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 19R9 B.S/PBICES BE [\m Cornell Economists Say Rise Cannot Be Presumed > ITHACA, -N. Y. (UP)-Tl!C effects of the European war on prices may bo complicated because past, wars have teen aecompanlscl by all sorts of movements in commodity prices, according to p r r P. A. Pearson and u r vv [, Myers of Cornell University. ' Some wars caused iitilr- or no change in prices in countries not nt war, mul other war.s raised prices to rise in the neutral as we! as in (lie combatant coimtrie; they suy. "The Napoleonic wars and ihi World War are the only conflict thai had any materinl effects m the world price level. The minoi war.s- of Circat Britain, France Germany, tmd Die United states as well as the Russian, the Japanese. Hie .Sino-Jnpanese wnvs. and the recent Spanish revcliitlon. iiai little effect. Whether the present war will be. a major or minor conflict is not yet certain. "During the World War, prices REMEMBER LEFTY'S Service Station foi Magnolia Mobiloil and Mobilgas Now Ulanagcd bv Witltcr Cox, Jr." and E. M. Murray See Us For Anti-Freeze! more than doubled. The dollar was relatively strong, and hence mcsl of the rise In the United States was due to n worldwide decline in the value of gold/Based on past experience, the Cornell economists say, the level of prices to be expected in any gold standard country during the present wnr will depend :i° the world value of gold and on (he value of that country's currejicv In terms of gold. "In view of the recent abnormally high value of gold and the instability cf most currencies, it is reasonable to assume that a prolonged war will be accompanied by a marked rise in community prices despite efforts to maintain the high value of gold through price eonlrcl, and the high value, of potentially weak currencies through exchange control, I'rice Control Is 1'rolilrin "Prices rose for a year-aud-a- half alter the Armistice of IUIB. Mllli:ns of returning soldiers resumed their normal occupations' during tin? |KTiod of high prices, i later to be faced with violent de' nation. In considering the imme diatc advantages of regulnlcc prices and controlled currencies Ihe problems that arise with Iheii eventual removal should not lx overlooked." After the outbreak: of the war ii 1314, all grain prices rose, but fel back with the large crops of 1915 the Cornell agricultural ec: no- mists point out. Beans ami wool responded quickly to the ndvanc ing price level. Milk prices rose about in step with feed prices, but egg prices lagged. Farm wages advanced less rapidly than did farm prices. "At present there Is a wlde'dls- >arity in the price structure, and a. substantial increase in the prices at basic commodities is necessary I-- restore equilibrium. If prices •isc too far thereafter, it is ex- Jectcd that the next adjustment of farm, wholesale, and retail irices, wages, and the cost of llv- iik will be more rapid than in the recent period of falling prices," Myers and Pearson concluded.
