STRIKE WAVE RAGES WEEKLY:
Paris Workers UnableTo Meet Rising Costs

(EDITOR'SsNOTE: Thisisthe sec-
end in a series of dispatches on
conditions in post-war France by a
former University student now study-
ing at the University of Paris.)
By RAGNAR L. ARNESON
(Special to The Daily)
PARIS, France, Nov. 12-(De-
layed)--The working people of
France are unable to keep up with
steady rises in the cost of living,
and as a result Paris is the victim
of a new strike almost evey
week.
All' Paris rode to work on bi-
cycles and stood crowded in ca-
reening army trucks two weeks
ago while gendarmes stood sol-
emnly in groups at the doors of
the subway.
The overflow of trash cans in

the streets has not yet been re-
lieved by return of the street-
cleaners from last week's strike.
Small Salaries Hit
Essential commodity prices can-
not be lowered, and it is here that
small salaries are hit. No one
can go beyond a certain point in'
cutting out meat, cheese and
fruit.
And in France there is no con-
,trol to keep these items within
financial reach of the people such
as exists in England. The black
market thrives and is the means
of exchange for everyone without
exception.
The French explain their tol-
erance of the black market by
reference to the German occupa-

mmil -

tion. If the French could put
anything over on "the Boches" in
those days, it was the thing to do.
Difficult Project
Consequently, under-the-coun-
ter operations gained such a foot-
hold that it would be a tremen-
dous project to get all markets
under control now.
Semi-retail markets at Les Hal-
les last week initiated price con-
trols as part of the "Experiment
Jules MQch." At present, the reac-
tion of merchants is strongly neg-
ative because the controls did not
reach the wholesale dealers from
whom they purchase.
But rising popular consciousness
of the problem .is exemplified by
litttle stickers appearing in the
subway announcing that "The
great need of France is a distribu-
tive economy."
Strikes in Italy
ROME, Nov. 22 - (IP) -Italy's,
wave of strikes and disorders sub-
sided today, but Pietro Nenni, pro-
Communist Socialist leader,
warned that a nation-wide strike
might be called to protest "vio-
lence against the workers."
"Drop by drop" demonstrations
should be avoided, he declared,
whereas a general strike "will have
weight."

Music School

.dutch Concert
Dutch music will be heard at the
second and final concert in the
School of Music's contribution tof
the University's celebration of theI
Dutch centennial in Michigan, to1

Hall.
The music will be the feature

and Charles Vogan, instructor in
