Another view was presented by an, other highly-placed authority who constant effort of the college authorities has been to keep the cost of attendance to the lowest possible amount, many of the students pay- Ing one-fourth of the cost to the college for Instructing them. But aald many believe a readjustment wme the cost of instruction has to work out successfully would have f been kept at the Iowe6t possible to go all the way down the line from i igure, the cost of dances, rings, year the cost of commodity and produc- organization assessments have tlon. through salaries and overhead expenses. Those who hold this view reason it out thus: The recent 10 per cent reductions announced by the steel corporations stin leive wages higher in proportion than the cost of living, as the re- duction ;n the latter has been greater than any wage reductions yet an- nounceU. Moreover, a cut already had been virtually in effect through re- duction In working hours In many plants. The standard of living is a difficult thing to define, because no two farni. lies having the same wage have the same standard. Objections to wage cuts were voiced today by Representatives Dies, of Texas and Swank of Oklahoma, both democrats. Both said the problem In schedule should be reduced and the their respective sections was one of special favors accorded them by surpluses, and that if the wage cut American government withdrawn" plumes, took third. ------o- LONDON MARKET STEADY LONDON, Sept. most of the members smiling, trading on the London Stock Exchange opened today in an atmosphere of confidence and the market generally -was called steady.

While President Hoover and his ad- visers remained silent but seriously intent, William. Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, took the initiative with a public as. sertion that the steel industry had broken its two-year-old pledge to the White House. The labor leader quoted a statement made by Julius Klein, assistant sec- retary of commerce, that "there will be hell to pay thoughout the United States in the event of a general wage This, Green said, was a logical and sound conclusion.

Increase em. of eget and of result in reduced living costs. In previous depressions, such as that of 1921, one economist pointed out, such retrenchment had been al- most immediate. The cost of living now Is estimated to be more than 11 per cent below that of 1929. Here are some of the conflicting views held by officials: Representative Wood, republican, Indiana, believes It Is only natural for wages to follow lowering com- modity prices. He regards the wage cut as "the best thing that can pos- sibly happen to wage earners them- selves." Senator Walsh, democrat, Monta- na, predicts mass buying power will be further reduced as the economic situation ''aggravated."
