Industrial profits in nearly all lines
are still above those In normal times,
although for tho future prospects are
rendered uncertain by tho unusually
rapid advance of wages and prices.
Further manufacturing expansion Is
difficult, riot only because of the ina
bility to seeuro the desired equipment
but because the necessary operatives
are not to be had. In fact, the short
age of labor Is tending If anything,
to cut down earlier production rec
ords, this being especially noticeable

Note the Contrast
We are modern and up-to-date
in our methods and ma
chinery. The old way was good
enough in its day, but it is
now out of date.
We aim to give your Print
ing the same Up-to-dateness
that marks the difference be
tween "The New Way" and
"The did Way."
This change in character will - make it a
source of profit instead of a bill of expense.'
