RAISES IN PAY May Take Place Shortly Among the Communists in Russia (Copyright, 1932, by the Associated Press) Moscow, Mar. 31, (P)- Members of the communist party, including the highest government officials, as well as factory workers who heretofore have been limited to the most meager salaries, may soon cash in on substantial raises in pay. The political bureau, it was learned today, is considering trebling the maximum monthly income allowed party members from 300 to 900 rubles (about $150 to $450).

The raises are planned in accordance with the policy outlined by Joseph Stalin nine months ago when he decided on the abolition of the system of "equal wages for all." Factory workers heretofore have been limited to the smallest salaries in order to set an example for the rest of the proletariat. Three factors were said to be inspiring the action. The first is the enormous loss of time and energy by party members holding important posts due to the necessity for seeking out places where they may buy the necessaries of life at prices commensurate with their incomes. The second is that many, especially those with large families, have sought extra work at writing or at lecturing in order to augment their income. The third is that many capable officials have refused to accept posts of responsibility because they received the same pay as subordinated they would receive as chiefs, without the responsibility.

Yet every day an army of salesmen comes marching into living-room. They take your time only when you can your spare it. They present their products to you briefly and politely, without a single interruption during your moments of consideration. They retire at your wish, or tell you more if you desire. Are you learning all you can from these salesmen-the advertisements in your daily paper! They come from the market places of the world.

They bring the latest facts about the things you want and need, suggest other things you might want or need. They can make life more pleasant, efficient and economical. But you--and you alone--are the judge! Can you afford to deny an audience to these salesmen? They do more than try to sell you something. They bring you the news of what your neighbors and your countrymen are doing in the world of business. Advertisements do not ring doorbells--but they receive cordial reception from intelligent, discriminating people everywhere.

Again and again they point out the only true bargains -sound merchandise at fair prices. When you read the advertisements, you are helping yourself to better things! years ago in St. Albans.
