There were plenty of dnrk clouds overhead that morning. But nmoni! [be teeimologienl mnrvcls (lerfccted hi America was one called Publicity. And with that m aK | c instrument all those dark clouds were colored a soft June hlue or a sunrise pink. Thaw who read their morning papers saw a speech bv one ot our eminent economists.

There was a serious decline on Monday. Margin calls 1 went unanswered.,R>r- elgn money was flying swiftly'bu! very "quietly-from Wall Street. But next day there was a-vigorous're- covery. Leonard Ayres had said that a creeping bear was at work In the market. But this was lost In the chorus of rosy reassurances which shone In the headlines Secretary of Commerce Lamont told the world that business was sound. Bankers issued statements thai stocks were sound. On the morning of Wednesday, the 23rd, there was not, as one financial writer described It. "a single bearish note In the news." The market opened with plenty of good humor. Then about mid-morning a .good deal 01 selling developed. Prices sagged. By one o'clock, the decline spread to leaders like Steel, Westinghouse Montgomery-Ward. General Electric. That was the signal for the flood, it must have taken an hour or two tor the news to get around the country, for it was not until about two o'clock that the siorm broke nnd the selling orders poured In on the astonished brokers like a deluge. In .(hat last hour 2,800000 shares were sold. By evening five billion dollars in fictitious value had been squeezed out of the market. One stock sank )C points.

In the crowded five years since that day. what have we forgotten- what liave n-e learned? As one looks back upon it several things stand out. One of them Is that the American Investing public In - the six years preceding the crash gave the most ama?.ing Instance of Invincible blindness—the blindness of those who will not see.
