believes that the collapse of the Unit

"It was no surprise. The British
papers have been predicting it right
along. It will result in the salutary
reduction of values and the bringing
of everything to a healthy condition,
It is a good thing to squeeze the water
out of some stocks. The standard se-j
curities are as good as ever."
In Teply to a question whether the
Schwab methods had been severely
criticised in England he said:
"That was inevitable. When a
man is down everybody is ready to,
kick him." Smallpox in Indian School.
