For the market crash of Oct. 29. 19?9, heralded the greatest depression this country has ever known. It engulfed-the United States in - a worldwide economic morass that, proved a breeding place for the seeds. of World War II. Here at "'home, the depression swept. FrankJin D. .Hoosevelt and the New; Deal into office. Perhaps . as important as any other effect, the crash and the depression did something to the American spirit. They didn't, as they seemed for a time to threaten to do, make Ihis. a nation of pessimists. But they did, perhaps permanently, dampen a notion that Americans were :destniy's .tots that this country :Was. somehow exemnt from the woes that were always besetting foreigners. And .of course that time of shaken values and bruised faith had this added lingering effect, among plhc'rs: it led some Americans to n belief, rudely shattered for most in the years; to come, that the Russians had come up with a system which worked better. All told, that Oct. 29 was a memorable day. Maybe it should be observed each year. Not a day of rest, as a holiday would be, but one of deep if not prayerful meditation, which is hard work indeed.

The market brolce sharply as early as March of that year. It bounced back swiftly hdw- ever, and its very recovery served to discredit the few skeptics who kept .asking how long this crazy spree of paper, prosperity could continue, On Sept. 3 1920, the Associated Press average of 60 selected stocks soared to an all-time peak; $157.70 a share. By the middle of that month the pveraee began to drop, however By October it was skidding several dollars each day, Oct. 24 ctiH known-as "Black Thursday" saw the skid become a headlong tumble. A wild rush to sell wiped -nit five billion dollars in stock values in a single day. The bottom finally fell out five days later—25 years ago today. The nation was a long time recovering. The Democrats say they saved it. The Republicans say it never was really saved, except by war booms, until they got back in office. .The Democrats say, conditions aren't too gopd, r.jghfnow t if you want their opinipn.
