bly overbalance any possible loss from a fall in the price of our raw materials.” In the course of an able review of the situation written for the Alexander Hamilton Institute, Dean Joseph French Johnson, of New York University School of Commerce, sums up his conclusions as follows:

All-Weather Treads

One Matchless Goodyear Feature

Here is one reason why Goodyear tires hold top place in Tiredom.

Here is a tread double-thick and tough. It is immensely enduring and it makes puncture most difficult.

It is flat and regular, so it runs as smoothly as plain treads. Yet there is no other

"A striking feature of the situation is the uneven influence of the war on American industries. We shall probably see, if the situation continues, certain industries and commercial organizations working at top speed and making enormous profits, while beside them will be the empty offices and deserted factories of other industries. It is, of course, impossible to estimate at this time in dollars and cents the profits and the losses that will come to the people of this country. But, this fact stands out clearly: that even though the profits and advantages we reap overbalance the losses, we must expect severe retrenchment on the part of many firms.

"To further complicate the situation, we must consider also the probable sharp rise in prices of food and clothing, as they will affect the wage earners and salaried employees of the country. The present 'high cost of living will in all probability be far higher within the next few months."

The conservative, yet hopeful, view of these eminent economists may safely be considered representative of the best-informed thought of the country. The loose and bombastic talk to the effect that the United States was being ushered into an era of wonderful prosperity as a result of the war, which was at first so prevalent, has now given way to soberer discussions of the immense possibilities for good or for harm to our business interests.

Goodyears are not merely quality tires. They are not merely the utmost in fabric and formula. In addition to that, they definitely combat your four major tire troubles in four exclusive ways.

Supply of Capital

VEN before the struggle opened,

Mr. Frank A. Vanderlip, Presi

dent of the National City Bank of New York, foretold the most vital result of the war—which seemed then only a vague threat — on American financial operations in these words: “The idea which some people have that a war would be beneficial to this country is a theory which belongs to the Stone Age of economics. A war would prove a great hindrance to necessary financing which many industrial plants and railroads must do in the near future.” Right here is a serious problem which must be faced either immediately or in the near future by nearly every progressive business concern in the United States. How are maturing bond and note issues to be either repaid or refunded? How is the fresh capital which this country normally requires year after year to be raised under present conditions ?

How are the lines of industry that manufacture

'HE French Government attempted
to arrange with J. P. Morgan &

Company a loan of $100,000,000
to defray some of the expenses of the
war. A similar loan had been arranged
at the time of the Franco-Prussian
War, yet President Wilson considered
that to preserve the strictest neutrality,
it was better not to make the loan to
one of the belligerents. Consequently,
the loan was not made. The sale of
American securities in New York by
foreign owners, however, has prac-
tically amounted to the creation of a
forced loan the part of the
United States to European people.
The money realized for such sale will
presumably be invested in French
rentes and English consols, and will
then be used to purchase American
goods to maintain the armies. This is
the only way we can pay for these
securities in the long run. This illus-
trates, also, how European trading and
capital are being spent for consump-
tion and diverted from constructive
use. The payment for American goods
by foreigners has been further facili-
tated by the deposits of the French
Government of $16,000,000 with Mor-
gan, Harjes & Company, of Paris,
which was immediately transferred to
the credit of the French Ambassador
to the United States with J. P. Morgan
& Company, of New York, and by the
establishment of a branch of the Bank
of England at Ottawa. The branch of
the Bank of England at Ottawa was
also intended to facilitate the settle-
ment of American debts in London.
Gold can be shipped from New York
to Ottawa without risk of seizure on
the part of the enemies of England and
without the expense of war risk insur-
ance and transportation incurred in
shipping it to London. The Bank of
England can then issue notes against
this gold deposit in Ottawa as a re-
serve and settle American debts in
London. This plan would have been
successful had it not been so impera-
tive for the United States to cease
exporting more gold.
