Sample of Society in A.D.I 933 Guessing ahoul what Llie liislorimis of the future lira gol'ip to put into their Icxl-lMJuka is a 1'utilu and profit- loss pastime, ordinarily. Nut it seems ii pretty siifc liol that Uii-y will lind iit least u conplc of iwnij-raplis for that kidnaping trial now Boiiif? on in Oklahoma City. More than any other criminal trial in years, perhaps, this 'case is symbolic of the present era. Not .since f\\ Capone was sent to prison for failing to pay his income tax has there been a courtroom scene that spoke so eloquently of the kind of society we h;ive put together in modern America. For the trial docs not simply represent an effort by tha courts to fix responsibility for a peculiarly insolent crime. It is a test whether the courts can even make sncli an effort in the first place; whether .society's ability to inquire into the acts of the underworld is to be at the mercy of the underworld's own defiance. * * * Confidcr the situation for a moment, To begin with, we have a vicious attempt to extort a large sum of money from a wealthy man — a crime whose mere occurrence indicat-js a crack in the fabric of society. Then the man suspected of h:\vins cooketl up this crime is caught. He forces his way out of one of strongest jails , in the land, is again, and finally comes to trial. • » » At his trial Ihc Authorities feel it necessary to turn the court into a veritable armed camp. The room is guarded, by machine guns, riflemen patrol the corridors, officers in oourl are ordered to open lire on the chief defendant if anything suspicions happens. Meanwhile the underworld puts pressure on the state's wilnossus. Written throats of death are roeoivcd. One witness is bluntly asked, "Arc you fool enough to think the tjovprnment can protect you forever?" The chief defendant makes "sinister asides" whenever the chief prosecutor i-isqs to speak.. Now all of this -simply means that there are desperadoes in this land whose power is almost a=: srcat as that of organized sociciy itstlf. The mere task of bringing them to trial taxes society's resources to thr- utmost. The whole .story of Ihc Iriul will tell fiiUrc students volumes about American life in the yonr 1933. -•Hi uce Cutlon. the Sensible Relief President Roosevelt's action in onler- iiiK tliu prompt expenditure of ?7. r >,000,000 to buy .surplus f:inn |>roiliu'U for I lie use of tlie nuctly seems to IK: one of the must sensible things he h;is done since he entered the White House.

Dividends Alt edilorlnl In Hie current Issue of Ihc Forum, referring to fin article In tlic .siune issue entitled "Wtaiy Feel", being tin account ot the drudgery of clerks in New York 5-and-lO-cenl stores, makes an illuminating point. . U .shows llml one of the companies In the B-nnd-10-crnl field earned in 1330, 1331 mid 1932 the sumi or $3.5C. $4.24 and 32.2V per share of common stock. In the same years, it. paid out dividends of $12.40, $4.40 anil $2.40 tier share, There are D.7SO.OOi! .shines outstanding, each with a par value of $10. Accordingly, at the present dividend rate, this ucll-iimiiaiicd company pays common stockholders a return of 24 per cent on pur vnlue. If the company, Instead of pitying n S2.4U dividend In 1012. had paid only $1.20, or 12 per cent on pnr value, it would have hail $11,700,000 to distribute elsewhere. The editor of the Fonmi, tissuming that the company luis 1,900 stores, calculate'; tin', it might. Isiive distributed these unrnlngs aiv.img its cmploye.s In the form of increased vcgcs. Assuming it had done so, at the rale nf $G150 per store. each containing 20 employes, every employe would have received S303 nddUlonnl for the year, or about $6 extra pet 1 vrck.
