To be specific one group will Tell you that business Pas declined because of the inflationary scare precipitated by the Pat Man Bill. Yet when tile Thomas inflationary threat in 1933 visited us tile result was a Little a Boom. Still another set say it is to by attributed to the Long session of Congress filled with frightening Bills and the stubborn persistence of the Senate in its endless discussion without action. Yet when business was rising from november 1933. To june 1934, Congress was in session and the Senate was talking quite As voluble and the Bills were supposed to be even More disturbing. The most persistent criticism is that the Federal Reserve Bank Bill. The utilities holding company Bill and the sensational ending of Aba has produced a paralysing uncertainty in business. Last year they said the Stock Exchange Bill the securities act and the Gold policy were doing the same tiling yet All these things have not paralysed the automobile business which has attended to its knitting and gone ahead making cars. A a credibility of fears scouted i do not think there is any truth in any of these alarms. As for aka business did not Start up until May after tile aka act had been declared unconstitutional though i do not think that had anything to with the Little unseasonal business spurt. As for the banking act and the utilities holding company Bill i feel quite sure that if any uncertainty has resulted from these it proceeds from the a frantic alarmist campaigns carried on by Banks and utilities. One of the most foolish and at the same time disturbing practices adopted by business itself these last two years has been the wild boisterous cries of disaster it has raised every time any proposal has been made for dealing with our National problems. We were told 21 years ago that the scarcely less surprising than his loss of the heavyweight Champion ship was Max Baers winning of a Bride. After fainting through various encounters in which he took considerable punishment about the heart but won All the court Deci j Sions the Playboy of pugilist made a decisive match with miss Mary s Ellen Sullivan of Ithaca. N. Y. Attended Only by their seconds agree to hold track profits injunction allows payment of expenses Only at dog racing track. An injunction restraining the Riverside greyhound club inc., from paying out any funds derived from the operation of Arkansas Only greyhound racing track across the Mississippi River from Memphis tenn., except for necessary expenses of the track was granted by Chahe Ellor j. F Gautney at Jonesboro yesterday pending final disposition of a suit involving title to the racing site and Plant. The injunction was issued by agreement of parties to the suit with a final decree to be rendered by Chancellor Gautney on july 29. The plaintiffs a group of Chicago men claim that they were divested of title to the property through conspiracy and fraud of Rex v. Wheeler president and principal stockholder of the defendant corporation George h. Partin l. D. Landers and e. E. Fox the latter allegedly having held title As trustee of an equitable Trust for tile plaintiffs. John a. Woodrow Federal Reserve act would destroy Shirley j cowing it John madder and with a District of Columbia supreme court Justice officiating they were quietly married in Washington. The above picture allows them going into a Clinch As Max led to the aha Kisser. At left you see the Happy smile of the new mrs Max Baer who previously managed a Washington Coffee shop. The lighter admits she a a knockout. The Banks. Now the same men As desperately defend the Federal Reserve act and insist that changing it will ruin us. We were told last year that the Stock Exchange act would crush our american financial system. Now most Wall Street Leader admit the act has been a Good thing for Wall Street. What has happened can be explained much More intelligently in terms of the economic forces rather than events. Obviously what is needed now is the creation of new or fresh supplies of purchasing Power. The purchasing Power being created is also being pretty Well used up. People a been spending their incomes. That is Plain from the failure of savings or new investment to increase materially. Every business which gives employment also produces and distributes purchasing Power through the wages and other costs which it pays out to produce goods roughly Industry May be divided into great groups industries producing customers goods the things bought continued on Page five and j.
