We get them for you and you pa no more than you pay outsiders wh take your money out of town wher you get none of it back.—Advanci 25' At "Man in the Street" See* Shortage of Gold Harvard professor* are doing fine teamwork. One scares us half o death and the other comes along and reassures us. Professor Guy, at the Institute of Politics, predicted a serious gold shortage in years o come, unless there are Borne more strikes like Klondike and South Africa. Now Professor 3nrver says there Is no danger. There is plenty of gold in the earth, but not all' mines can be worked profitably when gold .is cheap— :hat is, when a gold dollar purchases a small volume of commodities. As the purchasing power of gold rises it wUI become profitable to go after the gold In them thar hills. Thus the economic law will operate to provide the world with what gold It requires. Now If n third Harvard professor would tell us how to make that economic law work the same way for Individuals the picture would he perfect. Speaking personally, we have long been convinced that the gold shortage started some before we were born.—San Francisco Chronicle. (Held from last week.)
