During the past six months, it is  true there was in storage in  Canada'  a large quantity of frozen beef.

Business is being retarded because  we are hoping for, oi* fearing, lower  prices. Whether these fears, or hopes,  are ever going to be realized, no one  can say, but above the maze of conflicting arguments that.are being applied to the situation, one fact stands  out pre-eminently:  FOB  Busy Business Men  A   solid,   substantial   food   served   in  an  appetising flavor.

J  Every thoughtful employer of labor  realizes that the wage earner is entitled to -.proportionately more of the  comforts and conveniences of life than  fell to his share before the war. Every  thoughtful buyer should realize that  the price he, pays for goods, must be  in proportion to the increased cost of  labor. Also that labor, in the broadest  sense, constitutes over 75 per cent, of  the cost, of most produce of farm,  forest, mine, factory and laboratory.  The manufacturer, employer or individual who, is selling his own labor,  brains or product at a hfgh though reasonable price should itot expect: to buy  cheaply from others. Let us be careful, in our cry for lower prices, not to  | forget that permanent improvement of  living conditions is effected only by increase of efficiency of the forces of  production. And experience shows  such increase of efficiency is at most a  slow process, a process of years, and  perhaps decades..

High prices are  due  primarily,   to'» decline   in   production throughout Europe and. the industrial destruction and dislocation consequent upon five years of war.    Prof.  Paul    T.    Cherington,    professor    of  marketing in the Graduate School of  Business   Administration   of  University,    presents    the    following  short but interesting review of recent  price tendencies: *  "The price section of the War Industries Board found from investigations completed in Washington as well  as throughout the ^United States during the war, that wholesale prices of  some 90 commodities, including standard building materials, advanced during the first two years of the war  roughly 40 per cent. In the last two  years there was,an abrupt movement  -upward until.prices stood generally at  a point 150 per cent, higher than the  pre-war level.
