effect of their activity at the crit
ical point when the downward
trend was precipiated.
German Plan Failed.
In regard to remedying the sit
uation. Dr. Kirshman pointed out
several possibilites, any one of
which, he indicated, carried with it
effects which might be worse
than the cure. He explained that
an attempt to control such specula
tion in Germany some twenty-five
years ago had failed.
The short selling activity is
simply the negative side of specu
lation in anticipation of a rise. If
prices are not raised by specula
tion, they will not be so likely to
be lowered. Defenders of the
"bears" point out this fact and
reason that if short selling is
eliminated, "bull" speculation
should also be eliminated.
Short selling could be prohibited
to a certain extent, Dr. Kirshman
said, by prohibiting brokers from
loaning clock. This would not,
however, prevent short selling by
speculators who owned their own
stock or were able to borrow it by
putting up collateral.
Another possibility of regula
tion would be to abolish the call
loan market where speculators can
iiet loans bv pledging the stock
they buy with the loan as security.
This would slow up both forms of
speculation, but it would disrupt a
Abolish the "Lambs."
The most feasible plan, accord
ing to Dr. Kirshman, would be to
keep out of the market the so
called "lambs" who buy odd lots,
that is small amounts of stock on
margin and who haven't sufficient
money to increase their margin
wp a downward trend of the
market begins. Most of these
"lambs," Dr. Kirshman pointed
out. instruct their brokers to sell
them out if the stock price goes
down a given number of points
from the price at which they
bought. This means that the
"bears" merely have to force
pri" down a certain number of
points and then the "lambs" are all
forced to sell. This rush of selling
further depresses prices, more
"lambs" are forced to sell, invest
ors become frightened and sell
their stock and the whole schedule
of prices is depressed far below
actual value. Then the "bears"
buy back their stock and "clean
If these small speculators with
out sufficient funds to keep their
stock could be kept out of the
market by prohibiting the selling
of stock in less than hundred share
lots, which would more or less re
strict buying to those who could
afford it the precipitation of
stock crashes by short sellers
would be made much more diffi
cult, according to Professor Kirsh

a very important part. Sometimes
reverses in cocial and economic life
cause people to become "submis
sives." An Interesting examp'e
of the development of an ascend
ant child was illustrated by this
example: the girl was an only
child who had many beautiful toys.
Every day many other children
came over not because she was so
popular, as she thought, but to
play with the toys. She became
domineering and "bossy."
The questions in the tests are
problems such as this: "Suppose
you were the third person from
the first of a line of people waiting
to buy tickets. A person rushes
into the line in front of you. What
would you do? Would you 'look
daggers' at him; would you say
something under your breath
about him, would you speak to
him about it, would you do
nothing, or would you go away?"

last one you're an extreme sub
missive.) BIG 6 DELEGATES
