Composed Textbook on
By R. S. SIMS.
When, during a May Day demon- j
stration in the Roxbury district of
Boston in favor of revolution and
Soviet rule for this country, an un
dersized, frail young man of 21 in
a fit of anger struck a policeman
who sought to interfere with the
carryings on of a rabid element wear
ing red sashes and waving Bolshe
vist banners, few there were, even
in the crowd of paraders, who knew
this same young man for the per
son he really was?the rosy-cheeked
lad who, at the age of 11, startled
gray-haired Harvard professors by
propounding mathematical theories
strange, and in many cases unknown
to them; the same youth who, at
the age of 5, composed a textbook
on astronomy and at 6 passed the
Harvard Medical School examina
tion. But justice knows no favor
ites. sa^s B. S. Sims in the New York
Tribune, and despite his remarkable
mental demonstrations as a child,
William James Sidis, youngest Har
vard graduate, received a sentence
of six months in the House of Cor
rection for rioting and one year
for assault upon a police officer as
the result of the radical outburst
of May 1.
The court's action brought to a
climax an experiment by his father.
Prof. Boris Sidis, a Boston psycholo
gist, in scientific forcing, which
proved highly successful though la
mentable. The boy's precocity was
the fruit of a parental theory of
mind growth put into practice from
the very beginning of his life, but
which resulted in dwarfing him
physically and fitting him" for an
impracticable existence. That he at
the age of 21 should turn Bolshevist
is no surprise to those who knew
him in the classroom at Harvard.
Anything but prepossessing, and
wholly indifferent to his environ
ment an<l classmates, he was re
garded as a mere abnormality.

Of Russia-Hebrew parentage, it
has remained for this extraordinary
living example of a precocious child
to enroll himself in the army of in

blazers of the "Red" movement hav
fng for the most part sprung: from
the same race and having- been im
ported from Europe for the purpose
of disseminating Marxianism and
all ports of unrest propaganda with ;
which to bolster the dwindling:!
regime of Lenine and Trotsky.
Probably his blood accounts for j
his conversion to the "Red" cause?j
certainly there is a parallel of Rus
isia and things emanating from that |
hotbed of torture. But it is more |
likely that "birds of a feather flock!
together" and that young Sidisj

intellectual precocity. David Edgar
Rice, assistant professor of psychology
in Columbia University In 1W0, said:
"From what I have read of this case
I am strongly Inclined to believe that
this youngster is a freak, and that
hit unusual development is due to ab
normal natural ability rather than to
the methods employed by his father in
his education."
In 1910, Willie Sidls sa'd, as a result
of his calculations made in#the Jef

from radium are able to drive a ma
