Tfie Advice of Honest Mon Who Know, and Willingness to Be Con
tent With Reasonable Return, Declared Only Safe
Road to Assured income.
"Success In life depends upon the investments made of
tnlcnts and time," says an article on investing prepared by the
Committee on Public Education of the American Bankers As
sociation. "Future return will be gain or loss, according to
these investments. That i3 a law of life which controls in
vestment of money, just as it controls investment of talents."
The article, which is particularly timely in these days when
so many are being robbed by fake investments, continues:
In tho business sense, the word in
vestment relates to the use of money
in acquiring ownership of property.
Ownership may rcpresont entire pos
session of property as of a homo;
partial ownership ns holding stock In
a corporation; or conditional owner
ship as In the case of buying a mort
gago or a bond. Whon a person makes
an Investment in bonds, he is really
loaning his money to the government
or corporation issuing them. He will
receive tho interest which they earn
as long as ho owns them, or until
they are paid off.
Ownership of great corporations is
vested In Individuals who have Invest
ed money in their stock or bonds.
Many people regard tho ownership of
the United States Steel Corporation,
for example, ns differing from the
ownership of, say, a small workshop.
Yet Investors In shares of Steel Cor
poration stock are entitled to the samo
rights, under the law, an the owner of
tho workshop. In the corporation, tho
owner hold certificates of stock ns
evidence of their Investment, whereas
the owner of the little workshop' holds
a deed as title to his land.
Capitalistic Laws Protect Investors
Because the laws stand for tho
equal protection of all investors. It Is
possible nnd profitable to make good
Investments. It gives nn incentive to
work hard anil to invest. The person
who wishes to Invest must first work
nnd accumulate funds with which to
Bonds aro always secured by mort
gages on tho lnnds, buildings or other
property of the corporation for which
the money has been used. When a
bond matures the money must bo re
paid to the owner of tho bond.
All investors aro a part of a great
financial system which gathers up and
puts to work the wealth of tho coun
try tor tho mutual benefit, prosperity,
nnd well-being of nit. In America, It is
posslblo for any ono who Is willing to
pay tho prlco of self-denial and hard
work, to be an Investor. Good Invest
ments mndo in early llfo by saving
such small sums as may bo posslblo,
lay the foundation for providing tho
comforts of later years, whon It is
harder to earn a livelihood and when
poverty often becomes tho condition
of thoso who hnvo not practiced
thrift in youth.
It Is not wise for thoso without ex
HOW A RIP-ROARING
RADICAL WAS TAMED
By JOHN OAKWOOD
Tho best story of tho taming of a
radical I have ever read is told by A
II. Farquhnr In his book "Tho First
Million the Hardest." It throws more
light on the monn'ng of capitalism
and the futility of socialism than a li
brary full of books on sociology, eco
nomics and rolltks. Hero it is as
Farquhnr tqlls It:
"The best antidote for acute eco
nomic Insanity Is ownership of prop
erty. My favorlto example Is Otto
Stelnlnger. Ho was ono of my first
employees and was a rip-roaring an
archist. Ho insisted that all wealth
crme from tho workers and therefore
shouM-go back to tho workers. Ha

Unit ho did not nnnounco that ho had
definitely decided thnt ho would Ilka
to shoot tho landlord tho next tlmo
he camo around for tho rent. Finally
I asked him smilingly after ono of
Buy, Don't Shoot ,
" 'Why don't you buy your own
house Instead of shooting your land-,
lord? Thon you would not have to
pay any rent. If you do Bhoot him you
may get Into trouble."
"Ho did not think much of tho Idea
apparently but in a day or two ho
asked mo how ho could buy tho house,
I nnswered: 'That house can bo
bought for ?S00. You nro getting good
wages. I will buy that house for you,
tako $1 n week out of your wages, I
and in less than four years you will
have It paid for.' I
"Ho wont off again. The next time
bo camo back it was with his wife.
Ho said. 'Wo nro going to buy tha
houro but since wo havo no children
you can alio $10 instead of 1 a week
out of my pay envelope.'
"I bought tho house nnd then Otto's
chief concern was to got It paid for,
which ho did in a little moro Uk".i a
year. There was another house next
door to him. In a short while aft-r
he had paid for his first Iiouko, he 'but thoy are also helping to spread n

perience to undertake to make invest
ments of their money without guid
ance by those who know. Many com
panies arc constantly being organized
to promote unsound schemes, referred
to as "wildcat." There are always
solicitors ready to relievo pooplo of
their savings by tho promise of big
returns. Tho luro of great wealth is
always a temptation by which thou
sands of thrifty people are deprived
of hard-earned savings every year.
Widows and orphans who havo In
herited money aro frequently sought
nnd made the targets of these fake
stock salesmen. Misery and suffering
are the usual results.
Greed Defeats Safety
Many people with small means also
lose money because they Insist on a
high rate of Interest on their invest
ments. Safety of principal should bo
considered above largo returns in In
terest or dividends. Small Investors
should never buy high-rate, specula
tive Investments, in which thoro Is a
great risk, but should stick to thoso
which pay a fair rate and which nro
known to be safe.
To know whether an investment Is
worth buying tho Investor should go
to a banker, or a successful business
mnn In whom ho has confidence, get
his opinion and act In accordance with
it. In nil probability this will mean
the dlfferenco between successful in
vestment and total loss of his monoy.
The banker deals with investments
every day and desires to give all tho
help and Information bo can, nnd the
business man has learned by experi
ence the need of caution and careful
Judgment. Thoy bellovo ono should
have a clear understanding of nn in
vestment before it is purchased. Thoy
know tho need for avoiding stock pro
motion schemes nnd gct-rlch-quick
propositions which In many cases
havo brought poverty and suffering.
While many states have passed laws
aimed to protect the public against
promoters of fakb Investments, thou
sands of people annually tall victims
too their wile3, because they fall to
seek advice of those experienced in
Good advice and tomporato expec
taUons mark tho only road to safe
Investment and an assured Income
Thero is no other cortaln way.
"Ho bought that house and Jolnort
tho hated landlord clas. Some years
later when It was reported that a
band of strikers wore advancing to
sn'tit nil the factories, Otto rushed
Into my ofllce nt tho head of an ex
cited group of men from tho shop
" 'Get us a lot of shotguns and we'll
koep those fellows out of here! Thoso
fools expect a man to work and savo
and then walk In hero and take what
ho has got without paying for It!'
"And that," Farquhnr concludes, "I
think, Is nlways tho way to develop a
OF ADVERTISING'S USE
Advertising first established Its place
as an economic factor as a sales aid,
but as unders'anding and use of It
have increased, its possibilities In oth
er fields have developed until today
wo find it employed In many forms
of service hitherto unthought of. Ad
vertising has long been hampered In
Its use by precedent, tradition, con
ventions, and prejudices, which, tin
der analysis and experience, find lit
tle to warrant their exlstenco. Gradu
ally tho falsity of tholr claims Is be
We were told for many years thnt
it was undignified for a bank or fidu
ciary institution to advertise and this
edict, born of some superstition of the
past, was accopted without question
until finally it was intelligently chal
lenged and it was discovered under
analysis that thero was no sufficient
reason for Its support. Tho Inevitable
conclusion of logic is that, whatever
is of genuine use to human bolngs,
whether It be goods or services, can,
with truth nnd dignity, bo ndvortlsed
and sold, and that It Is Just as proper
to merchandise forms of servlco as
.various kinds of commodities.
In the logical development of this
,now understanding of tho power of
advertising during tho last decade,
