I TU* AMERICA* ^Tj You Asked For It! Investor Or Stockholder? Which are you—an investor or a stockholder? Now, don't answer that you haven't the money to be either one. There, isn't one of us but is a shareholder in something'! But in those things in which you hold shares, are you an investor or a stockholder? There is a difference. According to the dictionary, an investor lays out capital for permanent use, as opposed to speculation. A sto k- holdeir is one who holds certificates. Too often the l"ter is like, betting, on horse races. The stockholder is be ting that his shares will go up. The investor is working to help the business succeed. The investor is interested in buil in? a growing concern. The stockholder is interested primarily in dividends. | The investor accepts responsibility and takes an active part in watching over his investment. The stockholder, tfoo often, neglects his responsibility—and right—to keep Vfiateh, and leaves everything to management, only complaining when the dividends are low. Qn the basis of that definition, which are you — investor or stockholder? You have a share on your job. Do you just do enough to hold it, or do you take- a real interest in the success of the business? You have a hom'e, which is your share in the community. Do you spend your leisure time on your own pleasures, or do you take a serious interest in your investment in yottr community, helping to make it into a good place in which to live? As a citizen, you are a shareholder in the United States. Do you take an active interest in its government, j&titdyjng proposed legislation, spending programs, et c tra -Awhile they are still being discussed, or do you just gripe about them afterwards? ~- Carry' tfie-'ahalogy^itrto: everything1 of which you are a ^art-rand then ask yourself whether or not you are, an __ve_tor or a stockholder. Noted And Passed State Of The Feud: In the Senate cloakrooms the televised Statei of the Union address to the joint Congress is called the "State of the Feud" speech. It's pointed out that the President usurped Bobby Kennedy's terrain in proposed programs in two areas, social security and Head _*uut funds, then- pointedly outlawed wire taps and bug- ging by police, practices that Attorney General Kennedy seems so encouraged. No wonder Bobby was so intent oq his manicure during the speech and didn't risk damaging it by applauding. Full Circle: Back in 1900 a Utah Mormon, Representative-elect Brigham Roberts was denied his seat in Congress. iQne of the strongest speeches was delivered by Rap. John Francis Fitzgerald, grandfather of the Senators Kennedy, who asserted that to seat Roberts would be a blow "to the purity of womanhood and the sanctity of tha home." In 1918, Fitzgerald won the congressional se?t for the Tenth District in Massachusetts, but an investigating committee upheld his opponent's charges of illegal registration' and voting fraud, and Fitzgerald was unseatad. The man who introduced the resolution to deny Rep esen- tfltive Powell his Chairmanship of the Education and Labor Committee was: Congressman Udall, a Mormon. Book World: The day after Adam Clayton Powell was asked to stand aside while a special committee investigated his fitness to serve in the Congress a New York firm announced publication of a book containing twenty-two of Reverend Powell's sermons. Do you suppose the committee will delay its decision until it can read the sermons? The R's in, Education: They're doubling the R's in education in the length and breadth of the land.

There was no mention oj£ corsages for their dates. Ancient Man In Alaska! Anthropolgists, working patiently as is their way, have found new support for the old idea that the area now covered by the Bering Sea once was a land Link between Asia and the American mainland. They base this ju ge- jfteiit on the discovery of crude flint tools and weapons Mid other artifacts, dating back to 800 years before Christ, on an Alaskan river bank north of the Arctic Circle. • These findings lend added weight to the view that before, the ancient Assyrian empire arose there were cultural aftd commercial links between peoples in North America arid Asja.
