A Good Soldier Passes On
rpHE marine corps lost a good soldier and the nation
' lost a valuable citizen in the recent death of Jlaj
Cen. Wendell C. Neville.
Entering the marine corps in the early 'nineties, on
'graduation from the naval academy, General Neville
found enough action in his military career to satisiy any
one. He fought the Spaniards in Cuba, served in the
campaign in China against the Boxers, went to the Fhil
ippines to help put down the insurrection there, served
In troublous Haiti and the Dominican republic, won tne
Congressional Medal of Honor for bravery In the expe
dition to Vera Cruz, and took an extremely active part
in the fighting in France.
I As commander of the famous fifth marine regiment
rat Belleau Wood and later as commander of the fourth
brigade in the hard fighting at Soissons and in the
Meuse-Argonne, General Neville rounded out his career.
His death removes from our midst a very fine soldier.
During his 60 years of life he served his country as
' whole-heartedly and gallantly as any man couia ao.
An Exchange Of Visitors
AMERICAN motorists are expected to spend around
5300,000,000 in Canada this summer. The great
dominion north of the border has unrivaled attractions
as a vacation land and we're not speaking of Its liquor
" laws now. either. Citizens of the United States are dis
covering the fact in increasing numbers every year.
However. Canadians do a good deal of touring, too,
'and a lot of them cross the border to do it. In 1929, ac
cording to dominion government figures, Canadian tour
ists spent more than $111,000,000 in the United States,
and more than 619.000 Canadian automobiles went south
over the boundary. The figures probably will be higher
this year.
Here is reciprocity of the finest sort. That famous
unfortified frontier is in no danger as long as the two
nations exchange friendly visits on such a scale.
Alas! The only one that doesn't give honorary de-
rreea is the school of experience.
If you like a Sunday picnic in a quiet place far from
the crowd, you can use the front lawn.
Nobody bats a thousand in everything. Washington
.was first in many particulars, but he married a widow.
The chief difficulty in establishing parity is the fact
that a fleet is no stronger than the man in charge of it
It's a sad commentary on American culture when a
reporter's possession of a bank account looks suspicious.

C B. Dennian of the Federal

On a rough estimate, however.
It is said that wholesale prioes
ot food are about 10 per cent
lower than the high mark last
year and retail prices about
per cent. The monthly survey
ot retail tood prices made br
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
covers S3 ot the most commonly
used articles of food and Its
wholesale aurvey 1S1 items, so
no exact comparison la possible.
The bureau depends upon about
ISOO retailer for the Informa
tion for its surveys, so It never
com piles comparative wholesale
and retail prlrea, which would
make the retailers sore.
Retailers are reluctant to
change their prices, either up
wards or downwards. It la ex
plained. Sometime they feel
that alight Increase would be
Justified and yet fear to offend
th consumer by making them.
On the other hand, it la natur
ally much, easier to refrain from
cutting prices when wholesale
price drop. Th retailers never
notice lower wholesale price as
quickly aa thsy observe Increas
ed wholesale prices.
Usually there are two step
between tbe producer and the
consumer the Jobber, or middle
man, and the retailer. Tbe
wholesale price, aa commonly
understood, is the price paid by
the middle man. The middle
man usually gets a slice during
the invariable lag between de
clining wholesale prices and de-
cllninr retail prlcea, but experts
on these facts believe the retailer
usually gets tbe larger slice. The
wideawake retailer knows his
price trends and he can make
the middle man observe mem
easier than the ultimate customer
can persuade the retailer to fol
low tbem.
Soma blame la placed on the
consumer, however, tor increas
ing retail costs. It costs more

that food costing $1.63 In May,

Food sold at wholesale for
