H. Weaver, coroner, and Deputy Sheriff Reginald Beardcn. Wayne Williams, negro, about 35, was held in Ihe Washington jail Thursday charged with the murder. Officers described the case as one of the most brutal they had investigated in some time. The dead negro woman lived alone with her three children, a son, 15, and two small daughters. The husband of the negro woman died several months i<go. Tell of Attack Coroner Weaver said the three negro children leslificd that William;; came to their home about !) o'clock Wednesday night, abused and slugged the mand later attacked their mother, kicking ami heating her. They said Williams then dragged her to the front porch and stomped her. Coroner Weaver said examination of the body showed she had been severely beaten and that death resulted from u broken neck. The coroner reported that hc received a telephone message from the negro Williams about 9 o'clock Wednesday night, .saying that the Adams woman had suffered a heart attack tend had died. A few minutes later Weaver received a call from Deputy Sheriff Reginald Beardcn, and then the two officers letf for the .scene. They reported they found tho negro woman lying on the front porch—dead. Officers said they questioned the negro children who told of the attack by Williams on themselves and also that Williams allacked their mother and heal her lo death. Williams Denies Attack Officers said Williams denied the attack, contending that the Adams woman suffered an heart attack' and had fallen on the front porch. Williams was arrested at the scene mid carried to Washington where he was placed in the county jail. The negro woman's body was brought lo Hope. Coroner Weaver said a murder charge would he filed against Williams, and thul no inquest was necessary. The negro children are Charley ) But it is the most important thing to understand now. And the reasons can be made fairly clear. Here they (ire. First, when a man comes into possession of money from any source, ho is the master of Hint money. He can decide what hc will do with it. He may decide to spend it or to save it. If he decides to spend it hc hands it promptly enough to someone else and that person hands it on lo another. And us long as the fellow who receives it decides to spend it, it circulates, makes business, makes income. But if thus man who receives income—money—decides not to spend it but to save it, then ap entirely different economic consequence ensues. Industry Starts Front Savings When a man saves money he docs nol necessarily hoard it, put it in a tin box. He more probably decides to invest it. That is, he decides to put it into some industry or enterprise, lo open a store, start a business, build a house, lend it to a builder, buy a newly issued share in some corpora- lion, buy a new bond. All these would be ways of investing. When a man invests that way it rc- sulLs in spending. The builder buys j materials, Ihe corporation buys machinery, etc. Bui you will scc at a glance that the kind of goods a man spends money on when he is spending his income is very different from the kind he spends it on when hc is investing. In one case he buys clothes, food, theater tickets, radios, luxuries, etc. —tilings which he consumes himself. In th eother case hc buys materials which arc used in the manufacture of other materials. which arc used in the manufacture of other materials. Now it is clear thai when a man who is saving money refuses to invest it. these kinds of materials—machinery, iron, lumber, cement, etc., which go into investment goods—cease to he produced. The failure of these types of industry result from the failure to invest. Effective Dollars Move Fast As long as a dollar paid to a man as income is spent by him it moves and fnay go on moving through many hands, But the moment someone in the chain decides to save that dollar and puts it aside as such, ils spending days are over. They arc over until he decides to invest the dollar. The dollar flows back into the stream of spending. The only device in the capitalist system for returning saved dollars lo activity is through investment. If investment ceases, dollars pile up in inactive. flne*grcalj investment industries lag and in\ turn the consumer industries lag. And we have a depression. There is more to it than this, how- over. Very often, a man invests money hc l%s not go. He' borrows money from a bank to invest,slf he docs, this is even more potent thuri investing his own funds, as'a bank loan has the effect of creating new money.' v Hope Star VOLUME 40—NUMBER 54 ^WEATHER.
