ITALY FACES PROBLEM'~
IN FaOODSUFFPRICES
Enormous Sums Paid for Bread, Lux-
uries; High Wages Held Re-
sponsible
Rome, Dec. 15.-(Delayed.)-The
Italian government is facing an al-
most unsolvable problem in the ques-
tion of the cost of the nation's bread.
During and since the war the price
of bread was kept down artificially,
the government paying $1,000,000,000
and even lately $1,250,000,000 yearly
as the difference between the actual
cost of the flour and the price paid
by the consumer.
The price of a kilo (21/5 pounds),
of ordinary bread used to be equiva-
lent to nine cents, or of a finer quality
11 or 12 cents; now the price for the

same quantity of inferior bread is 21
cents a kilo, and the Italian working
classes utterly refuse to pay the bal-
ance, which would increase the cost
to them to 40 cents or even half a dol-
lar a kilo.
Italian workingmen are now paid
wages which compare favorably with
the salaries doled out to officers in the
army or heads of government depart-
ments, and do not hesitate to pay
enormous sums for wine, tobacco and
luxuries for their table. A mason,
blacksmith or cabinet-maker used to
consider himself well paid with ;less
than a dollar a day. Now they earn
$6.50, $7.00 and $8.00 a day, and look
forward to having more in the future.
IPoland Starts Munitions Factory
Warsaw, Dec. 14.-(Delayed.)-Po-
land's first munitions factory began
,operations near Warsaw recently.
About 2,500 men and women are em-
ployed in the plant,' which has been
named "The Projectile."

benefit of all who are pursuing the;
study of the language. The lectures
will be delivered in Spanish by mem-
bers of the literary and engineering
faculties.
Until the present year the societyI
had not been receiving much support,
according to members, but with the
increased interest in the language and
its recognition as an important major
University subject during the past
year, the members of the organization
have been able to complete an effec-
tive society. With the view of in-
