ning broad jump for the, boys and
girls events, and in the javelin
throw for the tbowys. Four initial
records were set in other events.

Daniel of Weiwahitchkia divided high
point honors for the boys with 16
points each. and Vonnie. Ruth Fair-

point honors for the girls with 18

Our Country Right or Wrong
DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH
We still hear people talking about buying a
car, a washing machine, an electric refrigera-
tor, a-home, or something or other "when
prices go back to normal."
We don't want to discourage them, for any-
one has a perfect right to defer his purchasing
in hope of a price millennium, 'but, judging by
the evidence, it's going to be a long wait.
The inflationary pressures are as strong as
ever. The usual upward wage adjustments are
taking place. The national income is still at or
near its peak. The government is showing
little disposition to economize in any direction.
The cost of the E tropean aid program and the
preparedness program will turn more dollars
loose and lead to more competition for scarce
goods. Nothing, in fact, indicates the probabil-
ity of important price drops for any kind of
commodity in general use.
Stores have voluntarily cut their profit mar-
gins, discouraged consumers from buying high
priced wares, worked with manufacturers to
improve qualities and lower prices, reduced
theiroverhead to the last nickel,, and so on./
.This has helped to some extent to retard ini-'
creases-but it hasn't caused a swing back to
the 1941 price level. There is a definite point
past which retailers or any other group can't
go and stay in business.-They have to make
both ends meet like the rest of us.
We all hope for lower prices, but don't hold
your breath while waiting.
Well, most of the defeated can-
didlates have had a cooling off pe-
kiod now and are 'beginning to act
normal again, even though their.
ego is still a bit shattered.. .
One of 'em, right after election day,
said, "Hell, Smitty, we can't all win,
and if the. other iguy 'beat me .it
just goes to show that I ain't the
-politician I thought I was. Anyway,
it done showed m.e that it ain't as
easy to get my snout into that' po-
litical trough as I thought it was."
And -we understand' that
George Cooper right after election
was contemplating raising the price
of shaves from 50c to 75c. "There's
so many long faces," said George,
'that we have to cover twice as
much territory in giving a shave."

vertising in his ad this week "Ra-

Both young men in the runoff for clerk of
