"MORE MILLIONAIRES THAN
CLERKS IN N. Y. STREETS"
New York, Oct 1. Riches are
coming so fast in Wall street that
families are being endowed from
profits in war stocks, and one baby,
whose parents are very much iii so
ciety, is wealthy without knowing it,
according to stories flying about
J. Robinson Duff, who less than a
year ago was just about able to buy
50 shares of Electric Boat at 13, has
set aside $250,000 for Mrs. Duff and
the youngsters, and yesterday he
rented a new office at 61 Broadway
to take the place of his desk room.
How much more he has he doesn't
know, but all in all he is worth more
than $500,000, according to all ac
counts, and he admits he has that
much and some more.
Considering that it took only $650
to buy his start in Electric Boat, J.
Robinson Duff is doing very well, and
so are many others. As the cigar
stand man remarked looking out in
Broad street: "There are more mil
lionaires than clerks in the street"
Mr. Duff made his first purchase
when the war was well under way.
He traded in and out of the market
for a few weeks and at the first of this
year he was pyramiding his gains and
enjoying life. That worn look he
used to have when he was trying to
turn a few dollars with Ford starters
faded from his face. Electric Boat
kept speeding up, its revolutions in
creasing every day the fortunes of
J. R. Duff, now J. Robinson Duff.
When it reached 500 he felt that the
going was so good that he might as
well unload ballast That is why he
set the quarter of a million aside for
his wife, thus giving her an income
of $17,500 a year.
