Babson will answer these and fiftv ntllpr lrn. liner .iii..timij in The Mountaineer Thursday, Domebor .SI. American business has no more in spiring personality than Roger W. Babson, internationally-known busi ness analyst and successful investment advisor. An outstanding feature of his philosophy has been his life-long insistance on the importance of spir itual assests. As tribute to hi great contribution to the "religion in busi ness" he is today Moderator of the Congregational Churches of America. Reared in an old-fashioned atmos phere 0f hard work and hustle on a farm in Gloucester, Roger W. Babson went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Upon graduating in 1898, he turned instinctively to busi ness and the protection of invest ments, health, and property. His exertions, however, brought upon him one of the worst of mala dies, tuberculosis. On the advice of his doctors, he and his young wife started for the West. "As eood as dead sail hi fripnHs jinH thm. nm'nr expected to nee him againbut he i- .i i.i' came uai-K.: It was while he was rnnv:liri?irr in New England that be worked out some oi the possibilities and problems of business statistics.

That, was noarlir I hirt v-fU-n wurs ago. Today hi. weekly .statistical and financial reports are read hv thous ands of business men every Monday morning and his research work is car ried on by a staff of hundreds of workers. His outstanding achieve. mcnt in the 'forecasting -field was his uncanny calling of the turn in 1929.

To millions of newspaper readers, Mr. Babson is best known by his fa miliar weeklv stories on business. A prolific writer, he is the author of his own "Five Foot Shelf." Of un bounded energy, Roger W. Babson hag probably done more than any other living man to make statistics a live issue in business, to instill in business men a broader vision, and to publicize the causes and effects of the business cycle. A Search for Holly inat Alight llav hnded In A mud IW HILDA WAY GWYN The holly trees on either side of my front walk have never been so bril liant with berries. One rarely ee holly so laden with fruit. They have, for some days, reminded me of an in cident connected with a search for Christmas holly that ended on the Balsam Road. Back in the days before one. stepped on the gas as a mean of travel, when the faithful horse was hitched up and by various methods was urged along until one's destination was finally reached, two liftln niiU 1 ii !,i i.-, ., - - into the wxiods and get some holly. It was just four days until Christmas. The girls were cousins, one eight a"d one seven, the last one visiting in the homo of the eight -year-old. They wore so wrapt in the excite ment . of coining events that perhaps they were more adventurous than usual. They were granted permission to have on.- ..f the horses hitched to the bungy and drive to grandmother's, two miles 'in the country. The mother of the 'eight year old did not expect 1 Ih-iii to go beyond grandmother's; After "making-the rounds of the tenant houses en grandmother's place, asking for directions as to where they could find holly, they were much dis appoint! to find none grew there. However they were undaunted and tin' eight year old, said, "Hilly, let's get some holly if we have to drive all the way to Balsam." And thev did. The highway was not the gradually ascending concrete surface of today, but a more or less tortuous road, that went up and down hills, many places where the- sun reached ,ni - i t - .. .-lllll 1. time each day, that never thawed out uuung me winter months.

Their eyes shone with delight and they sat for ft few minutes in the buggy just drinking in tin sight. Then with a start they tumbled out and began to try to break the branch es. Very shortly it dawned upon them that it was impossible for them to get any but the tiniest twigs. So they look ed about and discovered a large log cabin nestled in a clump of pines near by. They decide d to ask for help. One held the horse, while the other went to the cabin. In a short while the youngest, who hail goin- for aid, returned accompa nied by two men, one of whom carried an axe. They insisted that, both little girls go to the log cabin and sit by the lire, and get warm, while they chopped the holly branches and tied them in tile back of the buggy. Upon arriving at the cabin, the chil dren were -.quite thrilled over their fe ci ption. The men made room for them by the fire and asked their names. It seemed wonderful, txv be so far away from home, and have peo ple know nil about you, know your mothers, fathers, and even you grand father.
