FORD'S LIFE IN 'PERIL; PEACE SHIP DOOMED
TO FAILURE; WAR WON'T END TILL 1917
New York, Dec 13. "The stars in
their courses are -warring against
Henry Ford! The planets bode peril
to him and failure for his peace ship
on this cruise meant to bring a truce
in Europe."
The famous Jersey astrologer,
Gustave Meyer, whose list of realized
prophesies includes the assassination
of McKinley and the great European
war, thus summed up today what
fate the heavens hold for the Ford
peace argosy.
Because no mortals and least of
all, Ford's followers seem able to
say what will be the outcome of the
pacific crusade upon which Ford has
set out, Astrologer Meyer consented
to disclose just what the immortal
laws of the planets say on the sub
ject v
Meyer cast for The Day Book not
only the horoscope of Henry Ford,
but of the peace ship Oscar n as well.
boken, it seems, at a most unfortun
ate hour.
"As the Oscar II backed into the
river at about 3:13 in the afternoon,
"the evil planet Mars was posted in
the fifth mansion of the heavens,
which according to the law of astrol
ogy governs all-speculative ventures.
Now since Mars is a malefic planet,
this greatest of speculative ventures,
the peace cruise, is destined to fail
ure. "And Henry Ford's own horoscope?
but confirms this prophesy. He has
by transit the evil planet Mars on the
meridian, and this signifies not only
that he will suffer considerable loss
of prestige during this period, but
that his life also may be placed in
jeopardy!
"Moveover, at birth, he had the
fortunate and peaceful planet Venus
badly afflicted by the erratic and evil
planet Uranus, which indicates that
hp would be sadly disappointed in any
undertakings for the promotion of
peace among nations. Of all the
warring nations, France and Italy
will be most likely to show some de
gree of hospitality to him, because
he was born with the sun in the Zo
diacal sign Leo, and Leo governs as-
trologically these countries.
"Ford will return disappointed
about the -first of June," Meyer said
in conclusion. "There is no use "of
his hoping to bring any form of peace
in Europe at present for the simple
reason that the stars indicate posi
tively that the war cannot be brought
to an end until July 15, 1917."
