Explain Rises
In Food Costs
Local restaurant owners present a
varied fron\t to recent accusations that
their quoted wholesale prices on food
are higher than the current retail
Prices in many fields, while ap-
parently lower to the housewife, are
increased for restaurant owners be-
cause of quality considerations and
special requirements, a consensus of
opinion revealed.
In the case of spare ribs, John
Webber told the Daily, it is impossible
to get barbecued ribs (trimmed of
brisket) for less than 28 cents per
pound, and e is forced to obtain
them in Detroit. "A cheaper rib givesj
you a bigger bone, and therefore less
meat per pound," he said.
Webber also commented on small
difference between wholesale and re-
tail prices of certain meats in Ann
Arbor. "On several occasions," he
said, "I've been able to get lower
prices from local markets than my
usual wholesale source."
This apparent phenomenon of low
retail prices was explained in other
quarters by "specials" or "leads" in
large markets.
In explaining the closeness of retail
hamburger prices to wholesale fig-
ures, Al Heald pointed out that there
are no "strictly wholesale" prices on
hamburger. Since it can be sold in
any quantity to any consumer, it dif-
fers from bulk items such as a quarter
of beef.
Heald also noted the close margin'
bf large retail market operation.
"Several times," he declared "I've
been able to buy spreader cheese at
a lower price than I can get from a
wholesaler. However, 'leaders' such as
this only raise prices somewhere else
along the lime."

partially used chewing gum is behind
the ear. And almost everyone know;
that the best place permanently tc
dispose of this article (the gum, not
the ear) is under the arm of a the-
4tre seat.
At least two local fraternity pledges
knew it. For when their ever-loving
masters (brothers-to-be) requested
them not to return until each of them
had collected one full quart of the
jaw-developer, they went straight to
the largest theatre in town.
And when the manager heard what
the two boys were after, he welcomed
them with open arms. It seems there
are so many people who like to carry
their waste gum to the movies that a
cQmplete clean,-up is necessary every
three months. And the time had
come-the theatre had more gum
than W. K. Wrigley.
The manager handed each of the
poor, bewildered pledges a putty
knife, patted them .on the back and
joyfully began to figure up how much
this would save him in labor costs.
Pausing only now and then to won-
der "whether this wad is Goody-
Goody Bubbly for Oh-So-Chewy," the
boys dug in. And they found that
two quarts of gum is a lot of gum.
They had to clean a good half of the
theatre to get that much. But they
did get it. And that, I suppose, is
what counts.
There is where the story ended-
the manager knew no more, the
pledges would tell no more. But
knowing fraternities and college boys
as we do, what do yod suppose was
lone with that gum (and with the
pledges) once it was in the actives'
hands? We'd like to know!

and understanding was hailed by
speakers today at the dedication of
an international peace monument at
Belle Isle.
J. Pierepont Moffatt, United States
Minister to Canada described the
monument as "a constantreminder
that the hopes of the past have been
realized, that we have traveled suc-
cessfully the long path which has led-
to our present identity of views, above
all to our identity of aspirations for,
the future."
Leighton McCarthy, Canadian
Minister to the United States, lauded
joint eforts of President Roosevelt
and Prime Minister Mackenzie King
to bring about closer economic co-
operation between the two countries.

Of Anne Mc(
Demonstrating her ability as an
authority on foreign affairs and her
worth as interpreter of behind-the-
scenes news, Anne O'Hare McCor-
mick, who will address oratorical
audiences tomorrow, has graphically
written the story of the Sokol for, the
New York Times of Oct. 15.
Foremost feminine correspondent,
Miss McCormick is said to possess an
uncanny intuition concerning events
of international importance. Part of
her amazing ability to recognize the
political, social and cultural signifi-
cance of a situation before either has
impressed itself on the consciousness
of other foreign correspondents is
due to her habit of mingling with
members of,the lower classes.
Poetry 'Alive'

"Americans have no tne for poe-
These were the words of Gerald
Tien, Grad., and a former member
of the faculty at Yenching University
in Peiping, in a lecture given here
Tien's reference to Americans serv-
ed as an introduction to his discus-
Sion of why poetry is so much a part
f the Chinese people. Calling atten-
tion to the fact that the Chinese
are never too busy, to read or write
poetry,nhe remarked that a little cul-
tivation of this spirit would add
mmensely to the already material
greatness of our country.
Referring to the modern Anrerican
ystem of "dating" as used exten-
vely on this campus, h said that
lft vry ittl room for any poetry
love. "If a boy wants to see a girl,
he merely calls her on the phone and
makes a date." This of course elim-
inates the old method of writing a
Later in an interview, Tien was
asked if he thought the Japanese war
would affect Chinese poetry badly.
"Never," was the emphatic reply. He
then pointed out that petry is too
deeply imbedded in the Chinese peo-
ple for one war to change it. Because
of the fact that it is so widely spread
in private collections, rather than in
libraries, it would be virtually im-
possible to destroy.
Slavs ln Ameri.cq'
Will Be Discussed
By Rev._Bychiisky
As member of the first Ukrainian
independence movement before the
World War, Rev. F. A. Bychinsk will
speak on "The Slas In America" at
8 p.m. Thursda~y in the East Lec-
ture Room o the Rackham Building.
Reverend Bychinsky's address,
sponsored by the Slavic Society, will
trace the history of Slavic migration
from the Continent to America. He
will also show ,the chronological or-
der of each national group's arrival
in the United States.
Educated in Lvov in the old Austro-
Hungarian Empire, Reverend By-
chinsky arrived in America in 1903.
He is an expert in Slavic music and
Slavic literatures, and is especially
interested in Russian.
Besides his work in the Ukrainian
movement, Reverend Bychinsky took
part in the first American Slavic
Congress during the post-war period.
Although retired from politics, he has
maintained an interest in the Ameri-
can Slavic movement.
According to Eli Voydanoff, '43,
president of the Society, Reverend
Bychinsky's address will precede the

annual Slavic congress in Pittsburgh
next week.
Pollock Will Lecture
Before Dental School
Prof. James K. Pollock of the po-
litical science department will speak
on "The Significance of the Present
Situation in Europe" before an as-
sembly of the School of Dentistry at
4:10 p.m. today in the auditorium of
the Kellogg Foundation Institute.
Clinics and laboratories will be
closed in order that all dentistry stu-
dents may attend the lecture.

7ormick's Ability
In accordance with this custom,
she attended a meeting of the Sokol
while visiting a small Czech village
about 50 miles from Prague. All the
young people of the village, as of
every village in this country, belonged
to the Sokol. The program put on
for the American visitors was made
up of native dances, patriotic songs
and intricate drills.
What struck Miss McCormick most
was the extraordinary dignity and
solemnity of the exhibition. "There
was no laughter and not a trace of
self-consciousness. Those peasant
boys and girls were performing a pa-
triotic rite," not merely putting on a
show for a small audience.
"This was the Youth Movement
that had kept the Czech idea alive
under Austrian rule and had become
a spiritual more than a physical exer-
cise, the expression of the national
Sokol Was Dissolved
So the Sokol was dissolved because
as the core of Czech patriot-
ism, it formed an illegal resistance to
the Reich. It is not surprising that
it was dissolved, but the procrastina-
tion and hesitation on the part, of
Hitler in issuing the order was the
surprising thing. McCormick feels
that "undoubtedly they have been
trying to force the Sokol to become
an organ of cooperation" and only
now realized that they had failed.
So the entire perspective of that
little Czech village had changed-no
laughter in the streets, no abundance
of food, no young people gathering
for a Sokol meeting. "But the spirit
that animated them will be trans-
muted into hate. When you multiply
such a village by thousands youX be-
gin to get the measure of the furies
the Germans have to work against."
Nazi- Attempt Failed
Reports prove, Miss McCormick
continues, that the Nazi attempt to
reorganize Czechoslovakia was met
with total failure. Yet they drive on
endeavoring to establish the "New
Order" in territories already o9cu-
pied in Russia.
"Nothing diverts Hitler from or-
ganizing his new order while the war
goes on," Miss McCormick said. "The
scheme only grows more grandiose
as he extends his conquests. But
if the Czech village is the microcosm
of all the conquered villages, it also.
Grows more impossible.
"For the Sokol is the symbol of a
suppressed nationalism that under-
mined an, empire."
