Harvard Begins Tight Week"
Aggies Gambol Over
- Multnomah Field -
Cambridge, Maw., Oct. 18. "Fight
week" in Harvard football has started
with a rush and it was a badly btinged
up lot of warrior; Who reported at the
stadium today.
Under the lash of Fercy Houghton's
best coaching tongue, the varsity ripped
through the scrub eleven for six quicK
touchdowns yesterday, principally in
plays through the line, nnd so many
guards and tackles joined the crippled
list that Hartley, crack end, has been
shifted to tackle. Practically every man
on the squad was thrown iiito the Tray
in preparation for the Massachusetts
Aggie game next .Saturday.
Aggies Try Out Grounds.
Corvallis, Ore., Oct. 18. Fearing that
the sawdust surface of Multnomah field
will have a tendency to slow up his men
in the game with Nebraska Saturday,
Coach Joe l'ipal of the Oregon Aggies,
had the whole team gamboling around
over a sawdust gridiron today.
The practice wns secret, with alert
student guards at every approach to the
enclosure. Special attention was given
to the punting of "Tuffy" Conn, who
is expected to be the Aggies' mainstay
at the aerial game.
l'ipal will send against Nebraska
practically the same bunch that wallop
ed Wushingtou State last week. The
Nebrnskans arrive in Portland on their
special train Friday. In addition to the
crowd that is traveling with them, the
cornhuskers will be supported by n big
crowd of old grads from Spokane, Seat
tle and Tacoma.

There's a woman in Cleveland, Ohio, who has
amassed a fortune of more than $200,000 through
the use of want ads.
Beginning with a small house with but two extra
rooms which she advertised for rent, the foundation
of the total was made in less than five years.
As income increased entire houses were leased
and re-rented to roomers through the mighty little
want ads.

New York, Oct. 14. The course of the
stock market has been influenced al
most entirely by peace rumors and war !
incidents. The first caused weakness on
tli a li ntr' ilinf nmi a iirtll nnmnnl n !
slowing down , of important industries,
owing' to tho necessary cessation of mu
nition orders and the demobilization of
trade from war to a peace basis. Peace,
it is argued, will reverse forces which
have been pushing prices to a very high
level, nnd values' must consequently re
cede. The second cause of weakness was
the outbreak of submarine activities
near the coast of the United States,
which revived apprehension -of difficul
ties between this country and the cen
tral or the allied powers. These two un
favorable developments struck hard up
on a market technically weakened by a
prolonged rise and loaded to the break
ing point ,with big profit. Extensive
reali.iug was inevitable, the result be
ing a weakened and unsettled market.
Fortunately, the home' situation has
changed but slightly, if at all. Industry
is active, prices arc rising, nnd the
strictly home outlook is certainly good.
But the foreign situation, still the prime
factor, is full of threatening possibil
ities; besides which we arc now in the
midst of a presidential campaign which
is likely to daily grow more tense nnd
irritating. I'nder such circumstances
the obstacles to a further rise at this
time were insuperable; and the financial
situation, investment as well as specu
lative, has been cleared and strengthen
ed by reaction, which might possibly
be carried still further without serious
injury. On the other hand, the specu
lative spirit has been .'thoroughly
aroused, many operators with newly
gained wealth and big resources are in
the murket ready to take advantage of
every shift in the financial current. A
strong undertone of confidence exists in
the financial districts; and any favor
able development will be quickly re
flected in security values. As yet no
symptoms of lessened activity nre in
Commodity prices are still rising; the
general level being fully 25 a 30 per
cent higher than before the war. Cot
ton, copper, steel, oil, rubber, sugar,
wheat, meats and all food products are
advancing, stimulating general unrest
by adding to the already high cost of
living. Since the war, wheat and flour
have already nearly doubled, meats have
risen 20 to 30 per cent and over. The
British government, after taking over
control of several commodities, is now
regulating wheat supplies and prices.
Textiles show a substantial rise since
the war. Cotton goods are 2 to 100
per cent higher, linens have doubled,
woolens arc 50 to 70 per cent above
1914 and carpets have risen . 00 to 100
pe rcent. Thus far these advances have
been more conspicuous in the wholesale
markets than among retailers. Eventual
ly, however, they will reach the latter
class and the general consumer, who will
also have to pay for the increased costs
of distribution arising from the scarcity
and high wages of labor- This upward
movement is worldwide and not by any
means. cohfiued to the United States.
Th'e Causes are numerous and somewhat
complex, and yet nearly all of them find
their primary origin in the war. First
and most serious,, is the shifting of
millions upon millions of men from pro
ductive occupations to those of destruc
tion Hence, the scarcity of labor and
the inealculable wastage of life, proper
ty and commodities. Nothing can pre
vent even higher prices while the ter
rible scourge of war continues. Produc
tion is decreasing, while consumption
and waste are constantly . increasing.
Governments may endeavor to restraoin
speculation with all possible energy;
they may seek to prevent the unscrupul
ous from faking undue advantage; they
may secure better distribution and
somewhat mitigate the hardships of ab
normal conditions; but no government
U powerful enough to throttle the inev
itable law of supply aud demand which,
owing to scarcity, now operates irresst
ibly in the direction of higher prices.
High prices are the natural correction
of such conditions and the only sure
way of stimulating production. Econ
omy, efficiency and stoppage of waste
are equally necessary to offset the high
cost of living. Even in the commercial
world the ill effects of the war are ain
fullv illustrated, and many lessons can
be learned; chief of which are the in
violability of economic law and the pen
alties which the whole world must suf
fer for the struggle now devastating the
continent of 'Europe.
Railroad' prosperity continues un
checked. Reports for 23 important lines
for the fiscal year ended June 30 show
earnings of nenrly 13 per cent, com
pared with over 7 per cent a year ago.
These results were attributable to the
good crops and high prices of last year;
also to the industrial activity brought
about by the war. Railroad managers
anticipate a continuance of favorable
conditions for a long period to come.
The steel industry continues at high
water mark, and the monthly statement
of the steel corporation showing unfill
ed orders on September 30 of 9,300,000
tons os satisfactory. Our banking sit
uation is very strong, the comptroller
having announced that the resources of
the national banks of the country nre
tne largest in history. The country's
gold supplies have been enormously in
creased by importation, and the eom
birid holdings of the reserve banks are
now placed at $5!2,000,000. These facts
immensely strengthened the credit situa
tion, a feature which of course has an
important bearing upon tho inuinteu.
unce of trade activity.
In the midst of our general prosperity
it in advisable not to overlook the ulti
mate effect of the prevailing hostility
to capital at home. This hostility is
manifested in every possible direction,
and has been intensified rather than
moderated by present busiuess condi
tions. The responsibility for inflution
in values and the consequent rise in the
cost of living is in some quarters fool
ishly attributed to capital. l(:iilroadw.
are still objects of hatred by a largiT
class of ignorant public leaders. Cor
porations generally are being subjected
to nil sorts of hostile legislation and in
creased taxation in every direction. The
stendy rise in taxation is portentous,
and though accepted with little protest
while prosperity lasts, will prove a se
rious burden when reaction comes nnd
uncouud conditions develop. It is time
to call a halt, both on behalf of jus
tice and intelligent self-interest. This
hostility to capital is unreasoning, un
sound and more injtirioush to those who
indulge in such prejudice than to any
one else. If continued, it will drive
capital from the country in large
amounts and check developments in
home resources, discouraging national
industry nnd tend to diminish the re
wards und opportunities for labor. The
long-continued preference of shrewd in
vestors for bonds and short term ob
ligations over railroad stocks, the grow
ing demand for public utilities, the
large purchases of foreign bonds and
the increasing interest in foreign in
vestments have all been visibly stim
ulated by this almost childish opposi
tion to capital and to domestic enters
prise on a large scale. This opposition,
born originally of corporation miscon
duct and kept nlive by prejudice and
misguided public opinion,' still p ontiriuea
and had much to do with fomenting re
cent labor troubles. Intelligent labor
leaders must recognize the ultimate con
sequences of such a policy. Labor has
recently lost considerable public sym
pathy through bad leadership, and some
of its latest successes arc likely to prove
a boomerang. Big corporations long ago.
roused public . prejudice by abuse of
power nnd have paid the penalty. Now
labor is doing likewise, nnd gravely in
juring its own cause. The public is go

shall show proper regard for public in
terests, which is supreme.
