Soaring Commodity Priees
Give Students HCL Blues
By DAVE THOMAS
As school bells ring out once
more across the nation, the cost
of living index has achieved new
importance to thousands of col-
Prices of essential commodities,
such as clothing, housing, and food
have risen from four to five per
cent on a national scale since the
conclusion of the spring semester
according to the Bureau of Sta-

aboard a Detroit-bound bus were
seriously injured when police said
the vehicle cracked into the rear
of a farm truck on the Willow

THE BUS DRIVER and six pas-
sengers were taken to Wayne
County General Hospital in se-
rious condition. Six other passen-
gers were less seriously injured.
The Greyhound bus, en route
from Chicago, plunged into a
truck, driven by Raymond Wentz
of Wanatah, Ind., a few miles
west of Detroit. 'Wentz, bringing
a load of potatoes into the city,
was not hurt.
PASSENGERS were trapped in-
side the vehicle until a Wayne
County Sheriff's officer climbed
through an emergency door and
cleared a passage. The bus driver,
William F. Kakish, 31, of Berwyn,
Ill., was unconscious when pried
out from under the wheel.
Those seriously injuredewere:
Lawrence Burlew, Reading,
Mich.; Henry C. Perez, San An-
tonio, Tex.; Roger Brule, Clouston,
Sask.; Benjamin Crain, Detroit;
Mattie Seller, Gary, Ind., and
Nannie Duncan, Detroit.
RETURNING University stu-
dents, fresh from a summer of
stowing away vitamins at the fam-
ily table, have discovered that as
the nation goes, so goes Ann Ar-
With meat prices still climb-
ing and despite a record wheat
crop, meals, already a major
item on college expense ac-
counts, will cost still more this
Most fraternities and sororities
report board increases of nine to
twelve per cent while local restau-
rants have been able to get by
with smaller price hikes and a
little menu juggling.
BOTH THE UNION and the
League are posting essentially the
same meal prices that they did in
the spring semester. Residence
halls, however, have found it nec-
essary to raise prices on their fare
as announced last spring.
Housing, when it can be found,
costs no more than last semes-
ter except for rooms in private
residences which have risen as
much as ten per cent.
A Sunday evening date at the
movies requires an extra dime and
possibly more if you wear that new
GABARDINES are up almost
fifteen per cent in the fall lines
and the men have only the girls
to blame, for madam's new fa-
shions require much of this tra-
ditionally masculine fabric.
Other clothing prices have re-
mained steady except for such
items as women's suits and
men's shirts which have jumped
about five per cent.
With everything pointing to a
continuing high price level, and a
general lack of sympathy from
Uncle Sam and harried parents,
Daily economists expect larger
crowds in the more inexpensive
studying hangouts such as the
General Library on the long win-
ter evenings ahead.

If earlier defense estimates
stand, only about 250,000 will be
inducted for the '21-month peace-

be little trouble getting this many.
Almost all of the 250,000 will go
