THE PALTRY DOLLAR
"A dollar is worth what you can
get tor it," says ttobt. E. Smllti of
the war loan organization. "A dol-
lar now isn't worth much because
you can't get much for it. .It wll
be worth more next year and twice
aa much five years from now when
production catches up with demand.
"Profiteering, no doubt,' has some
thing to do with the present depre
ciated value of the dollar but it is
not the big factor.
. "In 1865, according to a Chicago
account book dated February 21,
1865, Chicago consumers were pay-
' tug 29 cents a pound for sugar, $1
a gallon for kerosene oil, 12 a pound
for tea, and 17c a pound for rice.
Even in the face of present high
prices a dollar now is worth about
twice aa much as it was then.
"It waa worse after the Revolu
tionary war. Martha Washington
paid $3 a' pound for sugar, one . to
two dollars a pound for meat, and
$25 a. bushel for wheat.
"The moral of all this Is that
prices are going down within the
next five years 'which means that a
dollar saved today will be wojth at
least twice as much five years from
now. . Therefore cut out luxuries and
tome necessities. Invest every dol

"Why'is Behnke-Talker the dominant business college'
of the Pacif.io Horthweet? Why are Its students so nniforralif
euooeeefttl? ' Eow.oan It place all .Its graduates in paying '
To answer, one :lSkto Answer, all.
.Behnke-Walker has come to be the largest business
college' because its. students meet the demand of the. ef
ficient business men. Its students are uniformly successful
bsoause they remain in school under careful instructors long,
enough to oaks thorough preparation for business "life. Of
importance too they have, as an individual asset the invalu
able prestige of a great institution one which business men.
universally recogniseas the fountain head for competent help.,.
In turn that. la why Behnke-Walicer can place its
graduates in pay ing-r-permanent positions. The best buslnesa
,brains of this region eagerly seek Behnke-Walker students
BO eagerly indeed that Behnke-Walker last year .received 1764
calls for help from business conoerns.end waff able to supply
less than one-half. It oould not then, and can not now turn
out enough graduate to fill needed positions, and this de
spite the. fact that the college is open the year round, and
Jpew atudents are. entering every day.
