In the Ruhr, according to Das Gas

is low. Savings, it is stated, even un

more than 5 per cent.

In the clip-sheet of one of the
national political committees Is
found the following:
"In one of Professor Irving
Fisher’s latest computations the
purchasing power of the average
man’s dollar Is rated at 68.6 cents,
compared with a pre-war value of
100 cents. According to Professor
Fisher the dollar was worth 3.9
cents leas In the week of April
25, 1924, than It was oa January 1,
"During ths first quarter of
1924 the dollar, was worth an
average of 68.4 cents, according
to Professor Fisher’s calculations.
The dollar’s average value for
1923, he fixes at 63.4 cents."
The statements are doubtless
accurate as far as they go, but
they do not tell the whole truth.
If the returns from production
and labor will buy as much at a
given time as at any time before,
the amount which the dollar will
buy does not matter. If the wage
level of 1924 is Increased In the
s&ms proportion as the price
level, there Is no loss to the
laborer. The real comparison Is
between the production required
to secure the dollar and the com
modity needed to buy the dollar.
Briefly, It Is not what a dollar
will buy, but what will buy a dol

he told newspaper men.

Foulk. "If I decide to take my fourth |

An eastern city, In seeking to dis
pose of traffic problems and motor
perils, is endeavoring to put tne
speed fiends at work on the high
ways. Instead of being fined or sent
to Jail they will be turned over to
the street department and required
to help in various departments of
road work. When a guy has been
burning up the road for some days
it will do him good to give him a
hose and broom and make him take
a turn at cooling it off. When a
motorist feels that he cannot pos
sibly travel a boulevard at a pace
less than 60 miles an hour put him
on a steam roller for a week and
see how much mileage he can get.
Also it Is a noble Idea to take the
ones who have been making the
1 highways unsafe for others and use
them In the definite task of saining
them up and extending their ser
vice. While the motor maniacs are
pouring asphalt they are at least
not running over the^r fellowman.
It is hoped that means will be found
to extend this plan of punishment.
It seems to fit the crime.

Girls Put Color of
Food Before Taste
“Girls Judge food mostly by their
eyes. They talk about the color rather
than the taste. A red cherry or a

whipped cream casts the die.”
This Is the belief of Miss Mary
Swartz Rose, a professor of nutrition
at Columbia' university, writing in Hy

Although it costs more to prepare
and serve food in these fancy guises.
Miss Rose tells parents that It pays
to use the girl’s love of beauty to sup
plement her weaker urge to eat. A
girl does not need as many calories of
food as her brother, but the sanre
amount of money can be spent on her
with good conscience.

with fruit and vegetables. Give her an
egg and a quart of milk n day. Insist
on her eating at regular times, and try
