Street Settled After Election
Flurry; Demand Holds
Prices Stable
R FOODSTUFFS SHORTAGE
w York, Nov. 16.- The general
ency on Wall street is to accept
lection results as fair, and to set-
down to pre-election conditions.
closeness of the result is regard-
s a sign that hereafter both parties
be compelled to nominate their
, able and conscientious citizens,
realizing that few vital issues
at stake, will base future cam-
as on the personality of the can-
e.
ose stocks which suffered a re-
n after early belief in Republican
ess had caused a rise, are now
to normal. The impression is
there can be no permanent set-
until after the war inflation
s, which contingency is not yet
ght. Prices of commodities seem
e held stable by two incontrovert-
facts, an abnormal demand and a
ral scarcity. The demand for
ftions is expected to continue at
until spring; .our mills are en-
Dring to fill the void in foreign
ets; while the whole country is
ig the stimulus of the big profits
e past two years.
ndustrial Awakening at Hand
is quite evident that the warring
ns will be compelled to come
i to New York for financial aid;
f which tends to permanently in-
se the financial prestige of the
4d States. So long as these in-
ces remain, the inflation move-
must continue, and when the war
es there will be compensations to
t their disappearance. A great
trial awakening is already at
in, this country, new markets
g been opened to us while new
tries are being created at an un-
dented rate. Unless all signs
ad, we have entered a new era of
trial progress in which the re-
a of industry will be more equit-
distributed than ever before.
e of the most assuring symptoms
e day is the disappearance of
c hostility to the 'railroads, which
so hindered their development.
the first time in years the rail-
s have been scarcely a factor in
itical campaign, and their pros-
for future fair treatment are
improving. American railroads

were $287,000,000 less than in
while the notes and bonds had
ased by $51,000,000, as a result
norant and prejudiced railroad
ation. To this are due the unsat-
ory service, lack of new milage
better facilities, from which the
ry has suffered during the past
ears.

is prevailing should not be for-
n. The longer the rise continues

Jevertheless, there is vastly more

Within the near future an apparatus
for testing pavement is to be installed.
I'his machine will have attached to it
iorseshoes and other articles that are
ised in going over pavements, by men
and machines. The tester will be
.loved over the specimen of road or
2avement being tried out. In this way
, close approximation to actual traffic
conditions will be obtained.
The highway engineering depart-
nent's equipment is now housed in
the old power house and when finally
completed this laboratory will be by
far the most complete of its kind in
the entire United States.
The most important result of yes-
terday's assemblies was the juniors'
decision to wear corduroys. The class

was unanimously in favor of this prop-
osition, and delegated N. H. Ibsen, '18E,
to lay the plan before the seniors. The
latter at their meeting agreed to al-
low the juniors to wear the corduroys
provided that their trousers should be
of a different color than those of the
upperclassmen.
The juniors are to hold a smoker on
Monday at the Union. Tickets, which
cost 25 cents, have been placed on
sale.
C. B. Barnard, '18E, was scalded
in the mechanical engineering labora-
tory yesterday as a result of having
some live steam played down his back.
His injuries are not of a serious na-
ture.
Harvey M. Merker, '09E, will talk

technology today on the subject of
manufacturing enzymes and animal
gland extracts. Mr. Merker is in
charge of the department doing this
work at the plant of Parke, Davis &
Co. He has been able to produce ex-
tracts and digestive ferments of such
superior quality that before the out-
'reak of the European war he was
shipping his products to Germany, the
recognized leader in all chemical mat-
ters.
The sophomores decided to assess
class dues of 50 cents at the assembly
yesterday. Prof. J. R. Brumm ad-
dressed the class.

AT 'THE WHTNE

Rose Stahl is one of th me t on-
vincing actresses w- av1 Of th C
American stage today and in "Our
Mrs. McChesney," in which she will be
seen at the Whitney theater, Friday.
Nov. 24, she has a role finely a.apted
to her ability. After Miss Stahl's in-
terpretation of Patricia O'Brien in
'The Chorus- Lady" and of Maggie
Pepper, the saleslady, it is very evi-
dent to those who have read Edna
Ferber's popular Emma McChesiiey
stories that Miss Stahl is the ideal ac-
tress- for the role.
Miss Stahl this season is under the
Charles Frohman management, which
assures a strong and well-balanced
con pany and a splendid production.
Miss Stahl is not satisfied to act merely
a role. She believes in living the char-
acter and so it is in "Our Mrs. Mc-
Chesney." She is not Rose Stahl but
she is Emma McChesney, saleswoman
