By ISABELLE KEATING. Among the mourners In the stock market crash none Is more vehement than Miss Edith White of 162 Sterling st. Miss White has addressed a com-$ munlcation to the Governor of the Stock Exchange declaring an investigation should take place. Pointing out that the debacle has all the earmarks of a revenge move cn the part of certain big interests fighting other Interests while the publlo "holds the bag," Miss White wrote: "If the Stock Exchange doesnt see anything dishonest in the professional bear, the least it can do is to declare a moratorium on bear selling and expel all those who are in on this scheme of revenge. I don't know any of the parties concerned, but I do read the papers, and I have a good memory." Miss White has no idea that the Stock Exchange will investigate, but, she declared vehemently last night, "it is an outrage that the Exchange allows personal spite to ruin thousands of people who can ill afford to lose anything." Well past 30, and dependent wholly on herself for support, she talked with conviction the voice of the white-collar class. In her younger days she was a secretary, earning not a princely sum but enough to live on without saving. Her father, throuirh careful Investment, made enough on the market to buy the simple home on Sterling st. Then came sickness and death. The burden of support was thrown on Miss White. To add to the difficulties she was caught in a revolving door five years a?o and her right arm and shoulder were severly injured. Doctors said she would never again be able to write. "Well, what could I do?" she said. "I had the choice of living on the public or llvln-r by my wits. A stenoTapher unable to write is of no use to anyone. I couldn't earn money. By the time the arm was treated to a point where J mteht use it, I was well over 30; and no one wants a stenographer my a-re. So I turned to the stock market as a means of support. "There are countless women like me. The white-collar workers simply can't make enough these days to live and save both. Any savin? they dd must come from extra efforts. The stock market is about their only opportunity. I know any number of school teachers who consider it their only means of creating a nest eg?. Most of them were wiped out in this raid. They were In class. Their brokers couldn't get to them. "They'll snend the rest of their days trying to break even.

"If those who could afford the losses were the ones hit, it would be different. But it's we whose meager earnings are at stake that get caught. I call it an outrage." Miss White snapped on the radio, tuned in on Babson's reports, and went on: "I had to buy on margins. It was the only thing I could do. When the crash came, my only hope was to hang on. I'd have mortgaged the house if necessary. "Generally," she said, speaking of her holdings, "I buy according to hunches. I don't get them often. But when I get a hunch that runs counter to my best Judgment, I ride it. I've never lost yet on a hunch. I've often lost, however, on my broker's advice." "Most women, I think, buy on hunches, and their intuition is generally good. But nothing was good In this last crash. Hunches and intuitions and the soundest business judgment went into the discard, just because a lot of bears got control of things."
