Forget politics, forget profits, forget everything except the war effort. Most people are 100% but as you dive down into the deep, dark mysteries of our present economic situation you will find a few that think morj of their pocketbook than they do of winning the war. Some shoe factories tell you that you must have shoes. They acknowledge their shoes are not as good as they used to be but their prices are just as high and higher than they were when they made s?ood shoes. They say materials are scarce and there will not be shoes enough to go around. As a matter of fact there are shoes enough in the stores and homes of the state of Iowa to last its people a year or more. Why not wear them out? By that time those fellows would be able to find some good sole leather and would be glad to make a reasonable price. Water will find its level. If merchants would stop buying those high priced make believe shoes the situation would adjust itself. For me it is good shoes or no shoes. The war will bo over this year and I want to keep my customers in line. Good shoes at small profits is what keeps customers coming.
