Smith has had hi* ups and down* in the stock market, of course vet b’- fortunate speculation he ha* succeeded in accumulating great wealth during thev depression davs How did he do this while tnv stors rißht and left were losing ever'-thing’ George Britt answers this ouestion in the fourth of si* articles. BY GEORGE BRITT Times Special Writer NEW YORK. May 6—When the banking and currency com mittee of the United States senate dabbled into the question of short selling on the New York Stock Ex change a year ago. it placed Ber nard E Smith on the stand and sought to make him break down and confess that he was "a big bear raider.’ “No one ever has called me a bear raider to my face,” said the bulky and rubicund Mr. Smith, in his very silken voice, “and I do not really know what they mean by a raider." Queries and proddings had no more effect upon his shock-ab sorber nerves than do the rumors which daily sweep Wall street and which he consistently disregards. He was known “as a big short op erator," he conceded, and that was all. Ask him today about the story that whenever President Hoover issued a reassuring statement he went short on a block of stock. The answer is a spoofing and in nocent disclaimer, of a pipce with his testimony to the senators. And it is Indeed true. He is not a bear. He is not a bull. He is too resourceful a speculator to be tied up in any emotional complex either way, because definitely and on am ple scale he is both. The market has been engaged in a nearly perpendicular drop, with upturns few and brief for three years past, with the short position clearly the side of profit. a tt tt MR. SMITH is not fool. But lis ten to him now, changing the subject quickly from bearishness: "I'm very bullish right now—very bullish on gold mines and aviation. , “If I talked about short selling, a lot of people who lost money would think I personally forced their stocks down. They would hate me. As an honest fact, there were some stocks that I wouldn’t sell at all. “I knew they were going down, but friends of mine were loaded with them, and I didn't want them to think I was putting pressure on their stuff.’’ Nevertheless, in Wall Street these days the name Ben Smith means bear. And the Street pays a per sonal respect to him as one trader who has cleaned up. About three years ago the com fortable reticence he has enjoyed all his life was broken into when the newspapers wrote about him as 1 “Sell 'Em Ben,” and quoted his “Sell ’em. They're not worth any thing.” Fantastic profits were credited to him then, as high as $5,000,000 and $100,000,000 in a single thirty days. What he has made he alone knows. Picayune trade is not for him. The other day he bought an extra 10.000 shares of an aviation stock after having seen it, himself already on the bull side, jump from 4 ’-2 to 12. He believed it was still headed upward. “You’ve got to have the courage to support your opinion.” he said as the one bit of sage advice in a scattered conversation. ft ft tt HE is 45, a west side Irish lad. once an errand boy, who never lost his boyishness and never was bleached of his realism, who bought his Exchange seat seven years ago and has made and lost fortunes by the dozen amid constant fireworks. Why is he in Wall Street? The TRIO HELD FOR TERRORISM QUIZ Two Men and Woman Are Arrested in Raid on Downtown Hotel.

"To make a livelihood,” He leaves more devious men to pose as cap tains of industry. Gold has been an enthusiasm of his for years, and when the gold embargo, the issue of the gold stand ard and inflation became of world wide consequence his gold stocks zoomed. Gold is the real depression baby. “No, it wasn’t foresight exactly that called the turn on all this present importance of gold,” he said. “But always gold has had a fascination for me. Asa kid I wanted to know how money came about and what gave it value.” He bought some Alaska Juneau gold stock in 1927. Two years ago he went by airplane to have a first hand look at the mine. He had bought in at $3.50 a share, bought more at $4, again at $lO, and it had gone up to S2O. He still holds a lot of it. On his way home he stopped at a remote village in British Columbia to look at another gold mine, the Pioneer. Discovered thirty-five years before, its inconvenient location held back development. “You fellows aren’t making any move to unload your stock on me,” he remarked after waiting around expectantly for several days. “I like this property, and if you want to sell I'll take anything up to half a million shares. Just name your price. tt v tt WHEN he got to Seattle the owners sent him word he might have 25.000 Shares. “Go to hell,” he said, and went to San Francisco. There he got an offer of 50,000 shares. He went on to Chi cago. Another offer went on to Chicago. Another offer of 100,000 shares, and he accepted at $2.25. From New York a little later he Public Counselor Helps S. Bend in Rate Battle Immediate Slash Sought on Gas Tariff Before Commission. First steps in behalf of the rate payer by the new public counselor, under the revamped public service commission law, were taken this week in the South Bend gas rate j reduction case. Going a step farther than the city j petitioners at South Bend, Herbert j P. Kenney, assistant to Sherman i Minton, public counselor, filed a petition asking immediate rate re- J duction under the provision for j emergency relief contained in the | utility law. The petition was presented to all commissioners assembled at a hear ing at South Bend. It is the first of its kind in the state’s history. Accompanying the petition was an affidavit of public service commis sion engineers and accountants set ting the tentative value of North ern Indiana Public Service Com pany, for use in gas production at South Bend, at $3,116,748. The petition then pointed out that the company, at the present rates, is earning a 10 per cent return on $3,500,000. It asked that the rates be re duced and then final preparation made for hearings on a permanent rate. The Marion electric case was cited, wherein the federal court held that the emergency relief is permissible. Kenney also cited the Wisconsin emergency telephone rate reduction case, in which depression conditions were expounded to show that relief should be immediate. South Bends plight particularly was dealt with, the petitioner point ing out the numerous bank clos ings there, number of persons re ceiving poor relief, and the many who have had to dispense with utility service because of impossi bility of meeting bills. The South Bend city administra tion had prepared evidence in the rate case and permitted to introduce it. The city asked a valuation $39,000 less than the com mission engineers. Beginning Monday, arguments are scheduled and the company evi dence will be introduced. Some desert plants have a root system spread over an area fifty times as large as the root area of a plant of similar height and sur face in humid regions. THE INDIANAPOLIS TIMES Bernard E. Smith, denying that he is a bear raider, who lias made a great , depression fortune. called up by telephone and bought another 100,000 shares at $2.50. From London he bought 100,000 more at $2.70. It wasn’t a listed stock, in those days. Now it is on the Curb, current at around $7, and he still has most of his original buy. Another of his gold stocks, Home Stake, spanned nearly 100 points on an upswing during the last year, touching 205 last week. Metallic gold to him, as to many Wall Street men, has a magnetic fascination. Floyd B. Odium, of the Atlas Corporation, has used $209 worth of small change, a gold brick the size of a small telephone pad, as a paper weight. Ben Smith usually has a gold piece on his person. Currently he has been carrying two little rectan gular briquettes, together no larger than a watch, as samples of Pioneer. So interested is he in gold, he has worked out a gold plan to cure the depression. In a corner of his of five stand a dozen large paper rolls —maps. He would like the govern ment to put an army of the unem ployed prospecting in the southwest. kMOOgTOgs I ' ~ lSS6*l?6berb E Peary, discoverer oS north, pole, bom* lS7o*3ohn T.

TRIES TO END HIS LIFE Brothe rof Louis Schneider in Crit ical Condition Here. Suffering effects of poison swal lowed in a suicide attempt Thurs day night. Paul Schneider, 25, of 3485 Birchwood avenue, is in a crit ical condition today at city hos pital. Despondency over the death re cently of his father. William G. Schneider, veteran tailor, led to the suicide attempt. He is a brother of Louis Schneider, automobile race driver. There’s as much gold as was ever taken out. he believes, and to in crease the supply would cure the money shortage. Ben Smith knows how to lose money. He was a bull in October, 1929. He was a bear in 1928. He paid for both mistakes. RADIO was the stock he mis judged in 1928. He rode up ward with its skyrocketing until 200, and then, dizzy at the height, began selling. He was murdered, as the Street figures it, and scrambled on to the band wagon again. Three o- Jour times prematurely he dumped his Radio, sold short, was all but exterminated, and came back on the bull side. After he first decided it was too high the Radio pool put the stock up an additional 350 points. And then Radio tilted downward on its long jolt toward $2 a share. Ben Smith grinned and sold faster than ever to make up past errors. He sold, he once admitted, “plenty.” Even before it slipped to the 500 mark he had sold thousands of shares. There is a story about his sturdy bearishness on the common stock of the J. I. Case Cos., manufacturers of threshing machines and agricultural implements. In a few days it dropped from a high of 500 to around 200, and Ben Hands touching the ticker tape are consumed with a deadly fever. Smith was on the short side. Then it recovered and gained back to about 360. He was caught again. tt tt COVERING at that price was suicidal. Should he take his licking? He got into an airplane and, had himself flown out to the corn belt. He talked to farmers, bankers and storekeepers, looking for any one with money who could buy new farm implements or to pay up old debts. He knew at first-hand now about the immediate future of Case, not as a stock, but as an industry. Quickly and confidently he be gan seling again. And Case stock in time tumbled off another 200 points. It went to 16% last year. This first-hand pursuit of facts is characteristic of him. He has in unusual degree the quality of look ing squarely at the facts, preferably grinning at them, whatever they may be. He is a realist, regardless >of warm personal sentiments, in the midst of a crew of romantics. Next: E. L. Cord and the Avia tion Corporation. DEMOCRATIC CHIEFS DODGING WET ISSUE Pull Away From McNutt on Election Participation. Governor Paul V. McNutt’s con tention that consistent Democrats should vote for wet delegates to the repeal convention June 6, is not supported by the Democratic state committee, it appeared today. For the state committee publicity bureau has issued an editorial deal ing with the subject, from which the following quotations are taken: “It is a peculiar fact that many people do not understand the point at issue in the election. Perhaps it is due to the fact that neither of the major political parties is turn ing its machinery into active par ticipation. But this is one time that the voters can go to the polls with out having to consider the influence of political principles.” It then is pointed out that states already voting have gone wet and concludes as follows: “What Indiana will do is pro blematical. but it is hoped that the election will bring out a representa tive group of voters of the state.” RESUME MUSIC EVENT State High School Contest Nearing Close at LaPorte.
