High Labor Costs, Taxes
And Utility Suppression
Are Given As Causes

made businessmen uncertain and
fearful may be removed.
Similarly, the taxation question is
bound to come in for consideration
by Congress, and, though revision
may be still considerably in the fu-
ture, the mere fact that the Admin-
istration is relaxing what has been
termed its "punitive" attitude to-
wards business in favor of a more co-
operative approach may do much to
inspire business to expand.
The commercial inflation move-
ruent was the ever spiraling upward
trend of prices of certain commodities
believed to have been out of propor-
Aton to costs of production. Forward
buying was one of the reasons why
prices should have risen so fast.
Producers bought ahead beyond
their immediate needs in anticipation
of future price increases.
Monopoly High Prices
Semi-monopolistic industries such
as steel also raised their prices be-
ond what is believed by many econ-
omists to be the proper justifica-
tion, though the steel companies in-
.sist that their price boosts were made
.* measure only as costs of produc-
The government's hostile attitude
:to the public utilities and to the rail-
roads, two of the three important
bulwarks of capital goods production
has, according to the experts, been
the reason for the failure of these in-
dustries to expand.
This hostility of the government
found expression in the competition
'of the government in its power proj-
ects and its pressing for stringent
legislation governing the public util-
Specifically the ublic utilities are
.bot $2,600,000,000. behind in their
expenditures, it is estimated. The
railroads, too, it is charged, have
checked their expenditures both for
capital equipment and improvement
of road-beds, because of low rates
set by the Interstate Commerce Com-
Government Peace OfferF
The government has taken note of
these factors, and the President has
*olered peace to the utilities if they
would revise their valuation basis
pon which rates are, in large meas-
ure,. fixed. This signifies a more
friendly attitude to the utilities.
Likewise the problem of railroad
rates is under serious investigation
by the Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion which has already shown more
generous gestures towards the rail-
roads by allowing some rate increases
Striking Indiana Students
Locked Out From School
RISING SUN, Ind., Nov. 17.-UP)-
'A strike of Rising Sun high school
students-punctuated last night by
bullets--became a virtual lockout to-
day and got nowhere with its demand
that Cassius Dugle, discharged jan-
itor, be given back his job.
School authorities refused, admit-
tance to any of the 75 strikers, a
group of whom was fired upon by a
deputy sheriff last night, unless they
brought their fathers or mothers with
.them. Only 15 appeared at school
with parents. The others, refused ad-
nittance, roamed the streets. The
school has an enrollment of 250.
