Dean Yeung Compiles Fig
ures on 19th Century Costs.
Relative Prices'Same Then As
They Are Today.
Life in early Oregon, while it may not
l^ve been ns pleasant ns the living con
ditions of the present generation, with its
motor cars, electricity and other things
thought fn be essential to living, had
Mine very distinct advantages. In a re
cPDt publication of the Oregon Historical
Society, some very interesting figures
|fP given as to the cost of living in this
(date in about the year 1837. The rec
ords wete those of Ewing Young, who
t«s sent to California to bring back
dome cattle for th£ early settlors here,
and were compiled by Dean F. CJ. Young,
of the school of sociology.
An accurate sc count of every expen
diture was kept and submitted to the
Willamette Cattle company, which was
organized to bring the cattle to this state.
Ihe, figures given show that while living
eipenscs were small, wages were no
larger in proportion. Modern conveni
ences, such as moving pictures and other
luxuries, had not found their way into
the habits of the people and money went I
much further.
Wages were never over dollar m day,
according to the figures given in the j
Young accounts. This is in marked con- i
hast to the .$4.50 a day which is now paid
for the most unskilled kinds of tabor.
Costs were not out of proportion to ]
wages, however, and a saddle is listed |
at $2.25. A good saddle these days r.ill j
bring around $50. Further on, n rope is j
listed at 25c; forty pounds of pork was ]
purchased for 10c a pmno; wheat con’d j
be bought for 60c a bushel, while the
present price is near $2.00. Board could
be bad for about $8* per month.
Clothing prices as shown by the ac
counts were but a small part of the
amounts charged at the present time for
fearing apparel. A pair of shoes was
bought for $2; a. shirt could be had for
fiOc; “pantaloons” brought around $4 per
pair, although in some instances they ar*^
priced as low' as $2.40. No cases were
recorded where artiefe*.- cosh oven-, the
present prices, the whole account show
ing that a man could buy more at the
earlier date with his day’s wages than he
eould at present. \

Most Aid Given to Students
New This Year.
Since lust. September, 52 permanent |
positions and 127 positions, some of j
which may have been permanent have
been secured by University girls through
the V. W. {'. A. This includes mostly
students who have entered the Univer
sity for the first time during the last
fwo terms, as students who have work
ed before usually secure tlieir own po
sitions without help from the Y. \V. C. A.
Of the .12 positions, from which Iji.'lO to
$40 has been earned each month, 2<i
were housework. U! stenography. 5 of
fice and clerical work, 2 music. 2 wait
ing ou tables. 1 tutoring, and 2 of which
no record has been kept. Most of tin1
127 positions were housework and the
caring for children and tile time put in
was from 1 to ."i Roars.
According to Miss Tirza Hinsdale, the
students that have been registering dur
ing the last year have been, much bet
ter trained in business than they were
two years ago. Miss Hinsdale suggests
that the war has been the cause of this
and many girls have worked before they
came to college.
These statistics, which according to
Miss Hinsdale are in no way a true rep
resentation of the girls who work, do not
include any of the gilds who work in
Hendricks hall, the library, or ni-icli of
the work done for the urofe s.-rs, »>• the
IS girls that received work during the
Christmas vacation.
Upsides University students a number j
of people have written to the campus V.
\V. <\ A., thinking that it was a city or
ganization and have received work
through it. According t*> .Miss Hinsdale,
a number of calls have come that the or
ganization could not fill, especially near
examination time as students often give
up their employment and it is difficult to j
get any one to fill their places. I
The round table conference which was
not held last term will be held this
term as soon as possible and a schedule
will be mnili' nut to revise the prices and
the standard of the work. This confer
ence is made up of the girls who work.
