 Federal Reserve Advises
 Russia Answers the Pope
 In A. D. 1001930
 angsters, Cruel, Silent
   Los Angeles.-The  federal reserw
 chief tells business to go ahead boldly
 showing more initiative, less hesitancy
   Excellent advice. Business will ad
 vise the federal reserve, when and i:
 prosperity booms again, to be less en
 thusiastic about promoting usury, an(
 run the federal reserve more like
 banking institution, less like a pawn
 shop.
 Reserve board financiers that force&
 15 to 20 per cent interest rates, hand
 ing hundreds of millions to  money
 lenders and adding thousands of mil
 lions in value, temporarily, to inflated
 bank stocks, need advice as much a,
 any business man needs it.
 Russia, inflamed by the pope's pro-
 test against atheistic propaganda, re
 taliates in vindictive fashion. In the
 Minsk district a fund is started tc
 build an airplane, presumably for war,
 to be called "Our Answer to Pope
 Pius." And from  the Veronesh dis-
 trict workers send to the industrial
 fund at Moscow ten carloads of church
 bells, sacred images, crucifixes, etc., to
 be melted down.  That shipment is
 called "an answer to the pope."
 One item of news will be remem-
 bered a million, and ten million, years
 hence.
 Nothing else in our age will be of
 the slightest consequence, even 100,000
 years from now.
 The news that will outlast recollec-
 tion of this age of industrial and finan-
 cial barbarism is the discovery of an-
 other planet in our solar family, sail-
 ing around outside the orbit of Nep-
 tune.
 Earth dwellers in the year one mil-
 lion nineteen hundred and thirty, as
 they converse in the ozone area, thirty
 miles above the earth, will wonder
 how such primitive beings as ourselves
 could have discovered that planet.
 Similarly, we wonder how primitive
 cave dwellers could have made those
 interesting pictures of rhinoceroses and
 horses.
 Gangsters are  not  kind  to  each
 other.
 John ("Billiken,,) Rito, described
 by police as "a bootleg racketeer,"
 member of the "Bugs" Moran gang,
 lie, in the morgue. Wires with which
his arms, hands and ankles were bound
when he was taken out of the Chicago
river have been removed. The police
wonder who burned the tips of his
fingers in the process of torturing him
beore he was murdered, and why they
did it. They will never know.
  Racketeers kill, and don't talk.

  What people think decides what they
are. Prosperity is to a considerable
extent a matter of psychology.
  Once a man was fastened in a chair
his feet put in warm water, and as E
practical joke he was shown a razoi

across the soles of his bare feet. He
was told, "You will bleed to death
painlessly in this warm water." He

  The   great  inventor, eighty-three
years old, says he wants only five
years more to finish this job, and
doesn't ask to live one hundred years.
  The death of Primo de Rivera, for-
mer Spanish dictator, killed by heart
disease, reminds you that being dicta-
tor is a wearing job. It takes such
a man as Mussolini to stand it for a
long time.
  The Italian ruler establishes a "mi-

  President Hoover, like a good fam-

or says things that are encouraging.
There is a great deal of value in that.

forever. Keep it busy, and full.
