Tho casual observer sec,a no want In

hotels, tho restaurants or tho shops.
Hut tho masses have little. Franco
mude a pretense of fixing prices, hut
did nothing to make prlco fixing effec

ulo existed In the best hotels and res
taurants during the war. No one was
allowed to have much more than his

a dollar a pound, while vegetables
were on n similar, level. And there

seem to be reaping a golden harvest,
lost heavily for four years, and It will

In Husla; jost of her Industries lay
In tho now devastated region? of the
North. To tho great mujorlty there
seems nn chance of beating back.
