To say. however, that a businessman should take all losses on existine and new enterprises and then have the profits on the one that does make good limited to 6 per rent on the capital Invested Is. of course, fundamentally unsound. This was the argument first used by the Russian radicals In bringing about communism and later by Hitler and his crowd In bringing about naziism. I do not for a minute fear that congress will adopt any such crazy legislation. It would be much harder on small businesses lhan on large businesses and be the end of new enterprises. This. I have already stated through these columns. It, however, should be recognized that the treasury department is thinking along these lines. The Good Book says, "as a man thinketh In his heart no is'he." This means that it is not what we accomplish so much as it is what we think. It is much better to think good thoughts and fall temporarily than to think wrongly and temporarily succeed. Hence, this- week's message. ' la»e«>et» CM stay Inmranee Investors who .have their money tn companies which are seeing their employes ruthlessly "organized" by the CIO come to me in great distress. They attempt to show me that after companies are organized by labor leaders into closed shops they never again earn what they did when there, was free bargaining between the employer and the wage workers. They also insist that it is not primarily a question of wage raises, but rather of discipline and efficiency. They claim that under a dosed shop the labor leaden really rule and the efficiency greatly declines. I tell the** Investors to quit their worry, give up struggling against the inevitable and gradually shift their holdings into something which will profit by this labor union move. For instance, when wages are advancing and working hours reduced, wage ~w«rfiuI^amlUes spend much more m the local stores. Hence. I advise selling the stock in the XYZ Manufacturing company and buying the stock in the leading grocery store .corporation which is feeding the neighborhood of the XYZ Manufacturing company. Also acme shares In the leading department stores of that community may be a purchase. Investors who have taken such advice have come out satisfactorily.

German. Italian and French fleets. "It Is Just as certain that we arc ROUIR to have to fight Hitler as it is that the United States and Great Britain are going to continue to exist." Pepper told newsmen. "We and Hitler are going to be the eventual ones between whom the struggle' will be decided." The Florida senator, a member of the foreign relations committee and a vehement advocate of more active lend bill. Admiral Harold R. Stark, chief of naval operation.-;, was said to have mentioned the program when ho outlined plans for strengthening hemisphere defense* during his testimony Wednesday at a closed session of the senate appropriations subcommittee which is considering the legislation. —The-admiral- was described as looking upon the expenditures as cheap insurance against possible nasl inroads in the southern part of this hemisphere. Although committee members said details ot army and navy plans for Joint defense of the American continents were not divulged, there were indications that military authorities were negotiating for the establishment of naval and air bases by other hemisphere nations with the understanding that this country'* forces could utilize the facilities in case of need. ftld to was awaiting the outcome of the Russo-Germfin war before taking new military steps. "If Hitler should destroy Russia, he said. "It follows as night after day that the Japanese will strike with further aggression, A long time ago we should have used our naval and air forces, plus relentless economic pressure, at points where that would <k> tn* most good. "It is not yet too late to draw a line and tell Japan if it is crossed we will shoot." * Pepper was the second member of tlie senate this week to talk of hostilities with Japan. Only Tuesday Senator Norrls (Ind-Neb* said that a German triumph in Russia might touch off war between the United States and Japan in the Pacific. Morris added he was not book values? Par instance, I understand that the bojok value of Standard Oil of Ohio is around $65 a share, white this stock is selling at only about 40. If the government should allow • per cent on this SC5 before any radical excess profit taxes, then certainly the investor has nothing to fear from a • per cent easting. Other reported illustrations are American Woolen preferred with a book value of over MM selling at about 74. and Mack Truck with a book value of over Hi sattinc at around 30.
