Rises In Cost Of Foods
Lead List; No Increase
In Prices In Books
(Editor's Note: Being a little bit more
financially embarrassed than they
ere at this time last year, two Daily
rpreshave conducted a very un-
scientific survey of the cost of sus-
tenance in Ann Arbor. The results of
the survey are given here.)
Either Pa will have to dig down a
little deeper into his pockets or Jun-
ior will have to tighten up his belt
another notch
At least that's the impression given
by local merchants, landladies at'
everyone else who has a finger in the
financial pie in this college town.
The cost of going to college has
gone up considerably, mainly be -
cause it is going to cost Ed and Coe,
more to eat this-year. But there are
other reasons, too.
Food -Costs Higher
Independents who feast in Statel
Street sanctuaries and downtown
emporiums will find this especially
true. The rise in meal costs is uni-
form. A meal that last year sold for
25 cents now will cost you 30 cents.
Twelve-cent sandwiches have go le
up' to 15 cents. and single-deckers
that went for 10 cents have gone up
to 12 cents.
Many beaneries are charging ex-
tra for' toasting, and in many places
milk now costs six cents. Doughnuts
and sweet rolls, the traditional
"pre-eight o'clock" quickies, have,
gone up one or two cents.
Rooming costs for, those inde-
pendents who live outside dorms
have gone up, too, though the rise
is slight. Rooms that last year cost
$72.50 are now $75 in many places,
and the water isn't any hotter.
Living in the dorms doesn't
cost any more-yet. But in some
house meetings dorm denizens
have been given pep talks about
eating all on their plates, not let-
ting their eyes be bigger than
their stomachs and generally econ-
On the other side of the fence,
fraternitiesand sororities are also
having their difficulties. The ma-
jority of houses have not raised their
housebills, as yet. But almost every
organization is seriously considering
the problem.
Since most fraternities and soror-
ities pay one lump sum for room and
board, the problem of separation is
rather difficult Of the houses who
have already raised their housebills,
the rise has been nominal. One fra-
ternity has added five cents a day to
the board bill, while another has
lifted the monthly assessment $6
which includes both room and board.
Cutting 'Extras'
Generally fraternal organizations
are not charging more, but they are
cutting down on the "extras" as

much as possible, and hoping for
the best.
Next to room and board comes ed-
ucation, and therein lies a note of
cheer. Books as yet have not gone up
in price, though some State Street
merchants anticipate slight pricej
rises in the near future.
Note and typewriting paper has
gone up some. Paper that formerly
sold for 75 cents a ream now goes
for 80 cents.
Engineers are having trouble that
lit students aren't sharing in. Slide
rules are virtually hVerboten, due to
priorities and defense preparatio ,,
Some manufacturers are meeting the
emergency, however, by offering to
rent the few available rules to stu-
dents for one dollar until new ones
are available.
Drawing instruments, at least
those which booksellers have on
hand, have not risen in p 'ice. Most
of these are made in Germany, how--
ever, and one merchant explained
that some students refuse to buy
them because of the imprint: "Made
in Germany." Any domestic instru-
ments that come in the future will
cost more than the foreign ones now
available, he explained.
And here's good news for the
men who like to enlarge their
wardrobe in town. The prices of
men's clothing has remained stea-
dy with but few exceptions. Shet-
lands, gloves and belts have risen

Engineers Attend Meeting1
Approximately sixty electrical en-
gineering students attended the meet-
ing of the local chapter of the Amer-
ican Institute of Electrical Engineers,
held at the Union yesterday evening.
An introductory talk explaining the
organization to prospective new mem-
bers was given by Assistant Dean A.
H. Lovell.

in price, but the percentage is un-
der the five mark.
Ah, but the coed-she faces a dif-
ferent situation. First, with the new
luxury tax, fur and fur-trimmed
coats have risen as much as 40 or 50
percent. And woolen goods are up
at least 20 percent, a conservative
But surprisingly enough, silks were
at the same price level which pre-
vailed before priorities set in. Of
course, the variety of styles has been
greatly reduced, but the c'ost to the
consumer is still the same.
Costs More To Get Trimmed
In the realm of luxuries, the hair-
cut, for men has already gone up
from 50 to 65 cents. Ad with barber
supplies up as much as 40 percent,
wages increased 10 percent. and oth-
er costs also rising, the hairclippers
are worried. But they anticipate no
immediate rise over the present level.
As for the beauty shops, they too
have raised prices, mainly on sham-
poos and special instruments. They
too, however, are struggling to keep
charges at their present rate.
Trouble For Movies
The movies are experiencing trou-
ble In keeping the cost of entertain-
ment down. Their main problem is
not whether to raise the price for
shows, which they feel is the proper
thing to do, but their main concern
is the expected adverse student reac-
tion to any further rise.
For the present anyway, the movies
will be available for the same price
as last year. Managers refuse to
predict the future for more than a
week, however.
State Street merchants predict
that student wages will also be go-
ing up, following the increased cost
of living. But they can't say when,
.or how much.
