in certain cases this Is a hard fact,
yet statistics show that there are more

life and alfalrs would realize.
In Nebraska State University recent
statistics show that :
I'hghtoen men earned the equivalent
to $1581 70 washing dishes.
Fifty-four men earned the equival

Niimlvslx men earned Mm equival
ent to $7'.H'li !u waiting tables.
Kighteen men earned the equivalent
to $.'! 5 50 l house work
