This seems lo bi> a Fascist sort of outfit now Ill-inn orgiinixed in the middlewest. Us leader is u man who says thai he once died and then returned to earth, endowed with supernatural powers. As ;i result, it seems, lie possesses "phyehic antennae." with which he is> uMr to perform such prodigies as malic forecasts actord- intr to the dales which are inscrihud ... in stone on I he great pyramid of " Gizeh.

Presumaoly, also, you are : pnl in touch 'with the leader's mystic ' ' revelations from beyond the void. Now all this—which must he taken seriously by at least enough people to -- give the leader a living—really' represents a lucky break I'or America. * * ^ The; contagion of Fascism, which afflicts European countries very badly at this writing, seems to break out in • this country only in symptoms which are laughable. Some months ago there was the fiasco of the Kluiki Shirts at Philadelphia. Now there is this • woozy business of the Silver Shirts; and the result is a sort of rcduelio ad absurdmn of the whole idea of Fascism. II is being presented to us, not as a movement which can enlist the sympathies of determineu men. bill as a supremely dim- aberration al which we only can chuckle. That, to repi.-a',. is a lucky break. OUT OUR WAY Once lc-l mi idea tft-t it humorous «»so- ciiition in Uu- niiiuls of llui American people iiiul lliey never will take it seriously.

Bui the career of this famous speculator seems to stand as a kind of symbol of the whole stock market arena 1 , a steady cycle of boom and depression, periods of great alfhience followed by periods of extreme financial stringency. And what, in the loug run, does it all amount to? Just who. in the end —if anyone—is the gainer by (his kind of operation? Surely not society as a whole.
