He still is, oven, after taking the awful beating that the new- economic-ova boys in Wall Street wisli- ' ed on him back in 1920. Fortune Magazine sol out recently 'to find out just how much hope he has left. 11 undertook one of Uios>o cross-section surveys, presenting to u wide^ j-jvnge of people the question whether" it still is possible for any young man with thiift, ability, and L.ambition to go up in the world, own his own home, and enjoy an inco'me of /at least $5,000 a year. The answers it got are interesting. ",An unhesitating "yes" came Iiom 39.6 per cent of the people questioned. Eighteen per cent said, "i'es, if lie's lucky." Thiity-four per cent believed that the right answer is "No." And about 8 per cent frankly said they didn't know. Assuming that the group questioned gives a fair reflection of national sentiment—and Fortune's suivcys have a good reputation for that sorl of ^ thing—it must be said thai a nation which feels that way is n long way from being dibhcaitcned. What it amounts to is that just about one-third of the populace believes_that opportunity is dead. Everyone else—barring a smalt group that, can't make up its mind—feels that a bright young fejlow who gels a reasonable share of the breaks 'can go just as high as a man needs to go in this country of ours. -i If you have been worrying about the, prospects of a revolution, and have been looking anxiously under the bed for lurking Communist or Fascist plotters, those figures ought to set your mind at rest. For revolution, whether it goes to the right or to the left, is the pioduct of complete, nation-wide disilttisl.on- ment and discouragement. Men throw democracy overboaid, scrap their accustomed way of doing business, and entrust their aflairs to a Hitler or a Stalin only when they are uttcily fed up with the way their system of society has been woiking. , The percentages listed in this survey aren't static, of course. If those , _questions had been asked four yeais ago, \\e might have got a vastly dif- 1 ferent set of answers; if they were asked four years hence, we might see MONDAY, JANUARY <1, J another change. But the significant thing is that thq replies do seem to reflect the public state of mind pretty accurately today, as the'country emerges from its worst depression. And they show that the traditional optimism of the American spirit is far from ended. Despite long years of unemployment, low wages, non-cxifitent profits, and agonizing doubt, this still is n hopeful country.

NOW (il> OX WITH Til 13 STOHY CHAPTER XVII JJEARL JOHN seemed to liave changed in Ihe fov/ minutes ho had been nbsont. Gone was the carc-frco aood humor that had Ijcon his moat attraclivc charac- forward and grasping John's arms from behind. '•I'm sending two men down the trail lo SanUi Fc tonight," Pearl John went on. "Tliey can probably get through, even though it is • storming again. The officers will be here tomorrow morning, at the latest." "I'm glad you've taken such a siand, dc Forest," remarked Pro- Jcssor Shaw, coining into the room just tiien. "You v.'ished to see me?" 'To as): if you have the obsidian knife," said Pearl. John. • "What do you mean?" the professor countered. • "Just this. As you already know, the taife Ims been taken again by some unknown person. Since you were so interested in it, peihaps you will be kind enough to hand it over now." T^OR ,i moment tho professoi did not answer, though everyone in the room waited breathlessly for his words. Then'he said, matlcr-of-factly. "I not onl; do not have tiic artifact in my possession, but I did not know i v.'as any place but \vhc-rc.\ve al saw it last." The younger man's face turned purple and, 'for a ininutc, Bob thought he was going to sprin on the older man. "You lie!" de Forest shouted hoarsely, shaking his fist in the professor's' face. "You He by the clock! And I'm going—" : "You're going to quiet down," said Ramon, taking a quick step Pearl 'You'll never find out anything if you go around shouting accusations at people. Don't you know that?" Pearl John evidently was impressed with the logic of this, for he relaxed! Turning away from the professor, he walked over to the Indian who stood waiting in the doorway. "Broken Shield, you refused to destroy the obsidian knife, didn't you?" lie did not try to conceal his hatred for the man. "Si," was the guttural reply. The Indian waited, as motionless as a slatue.. "And you had no love for cither of my dead brothers, did you?" Pearl John went on relentlessly. "They hate Broken Shield," the man answered. "They would drive him from mesa. My tribe always live on Thunder Mesa. Great Spirit give it for their and." "Yes, but that didn't prevent be.-state of New Mexico from aking my family's money in pay- ncnt for U, just the same," napped de : Forcsl. /'The fact rc- •nains that you think you have •easbn to kill any of lis, if you ook the. notion, although we've loused you and fed you most of •our life." PHE Indian drew himself up proudly. "Broken'Shield work !pr his keep," he said. "Last o! .ribe must stay, hero to—". "To what?" broke in cic Forest 'Why should Tante Josephine insist that-you slay here?" a moment the Indian's clenched as though he For lands would gladly throllle liis employer, but he only .said, In a. coli tone 1 , "Broken Shield; miist stay in the home of his fathers." ; "And be sure : the knife, was kept in good working order," sneered Pearl John. "Now", Broken Shield, there was one window in the chapel left open. A strong man could have lowered himself from the roof-and entered—lowered himself, much as you did when you went down the side of the clifl. I noticet] just now when I went to the; chapel that the window .Xvas open," farther than when I locked the'door the. first time. Did you forget to leave it as you found it,when you .took the knife? And were you working'on 'our own, the suggestion ol someone else here?" He glancecj at the professor as he spoke.. "No," answered the Indiarl igain. "I£ you lock knife in room! t still there." "Now, de Forest, there's uol •nuch use trying third degree tacT ics," Bob said. "You've sent foil he officers and when they comtl vhy not let them handle this tliiut| 'or you?" "I guess you're right," answerecl PeaiiJohn. lie walked rapidljf 0 the door and sent for two merl servants. When they came, ho or-| dered them to take the Indian ti lis room and keep him there unti| the officers arrived.- •••... Broken Shield did not resist a:| he frightened Mexicans graspccl him and started through the dopil with him. Bob looked at BeU>| with a sigh o£ relief, and'everyc n the room relaxed. Then a pieil ing scream cut the silence, ai? Tantc Josephine appeared iu-tluj hall, her cane thumping excitcdly[ "Slop!" she cried. "Stop I say| Where are you taking him?" . * * c PEARL JOHN strode to hef sid< and tried to grasp her arm, bii| she shook him off as though were a ciiild. "You've alwayl wanted to drive him away, anil now you think you're going to d<| it, don't you?" she screamed. Betty ran to her, trying to calnl her, but the old woman's ragl was not easily stemmed. 'Pearl Sam and Pearl. Pierrl were both hard, criiel men, an! the world is better off without them. But. Broken Shield did nol kill them—for I know who didll Tantc Josephine: \vas trcmblinl violently by this lime,' and.ihl next minute would have'falleii tl the floor if Bob had not :caugh| her. .
