But that's where this one started. At that time, a guy we'll call Mr. Insider was high up in the Bureau of Statistics of the Department of griculture.

Well, what do you reckon this scallywag Mr. Insider did? He put his knowledge to work in the market. And before the boss caught him rcdhandcd with his lunch hooks in cotton futures, he had cleaned up $70.000. They canned him and wrote it into the book as "the cotton scandal." But more to the point, that's why they now have a lop secret day at the Department of Agriculture whenever there is a crop report to hand out. Release Day Like last week, when Secretary Clinton P. Andeison's boys got up a report on stocks of grain lying in bins around the country. The , atom bomb wasn't guarded any ! closer.
