Ksscnlially, the sccuritiiv ad is simple. It provides that th- buyer of stocks or bonds which (urn mil lo l,e worthless eiin sue the man or linn that sold them lo him, provided he can lind any imporliint ii^sratcmont i of fact ii'i the ballyhoo : which accompanied the sale. * f t . On the surface, this is nothing but a fair measure of protection CC.T the investing public, lint Wall Street has complained bitterly that it cripples Ihii entire business of iiiarkeliiij; new securities. No one, says \\'all Street, "will-risk the penalties involved in I his act liy issuing any security which has the slightest, element of risk.. At a moment when free operation O f the securities market is essential lo n.- covery, says the Street, (ho securities act makes such operation impassible. Now here is a point worth a lot of study—since the present Comrrcs.- certainly will he asked, .sooner i.r Inter, lo modify or repeal I In- .scairiiies aci, in the interest of a business revival. * » * Few new securities have been issued of late. Yet it is more than p:>ssilile that this is due to (.•onditii-.i.s entirely unrelated to the securities law. H might be pointed out that distillery 3tocks—based on an industry whose prospects look very good—havu been marketed without trouble. When business prospects generally l-iok equally good, won't other securities lir.d equally ready s.ile;? It behoove.? Congress t-j move very OUT OUR WAY slowly in touching the securities aet. The lau is important (<> tin; people of the nation as a symbol—u .symbol of the fact that effective social control at last is being exeivlsi'i! over the money changers who helped to wreck the country.
