is called with real affection, ha;

old age. He has one of the large
fortunes of this country?or did
have, before he started giving it
In the year 1870, he was born In
Can den, South Carolina, the son
of a poor doctor. He went to col
lege then straight to Wall St feet
and made money. How? Speculat
ing, Barney quickly replied. He's
not ashamed of it. "The word
comes from the Latin 'specular!',
which means to observe," he ex
plained. "I observe." He went to
his father,-told him he was 30 years
old, and had made a million dollars.
"Yes, my son," replied the father
whose memory Barney reveres very
much, "but what good are you go
ing to do with it?" The answer of
the son was, in the years to come,
to give away millions for medical
research. education, charity and
Came World War I and Bernard
Baruch was a financial titan, able
to reorganize large industries and
commercial enterprises. President
Woodrow Wilson turned to him,
put him hi/charge of the nation's
i industry and he did a marvelous

? tor Facta". Since then. Baruch ha?

! Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman and
I Eisenhower. Yet no one seems to
> know just what his advice has
1 been, you ask Barney what he told
' those Presidents, and he just gives
i you his nice smile. But truly, his
is a ease of "Show me a man who
1 is diligent in his ways, and he shall
stand before kings."
In the thirties, he sat on a park
bench across from the White House
and worried about how low were
our armefl forces. Offered to give
three millions of his own money
to build up a modern army. He
foresaw World War II more than
most people. After that conflict.
Barney headed a commission to put
atomic energy under international
control, but the Russians turned
down his plan. Today they are
turning to it, at least to some ex
tent. Hut that failure was a great
\>low for Barney. He says, V1 had
come to the end of my furrow."
This remark and that of Goverfior
Averill Harriman of New York
don't coincide however. Said the
governor recently, "Bernard Ba
ruch will be fittingly honored by
the whole world for his dedicated
efTorts as a humanitarian and for
his leadership in behalf of world
In chatting with him, looking at
those twinkling eyes, even his car
phone, and hearing his genial
words of wisdom, I got the feeling
Bernard Baruch would never ba
old. He modestly says old men
shouldn't talk so much, should let
young men take over the tasks,
even if they do make mistakes, but
T notice when we have a big war,
even our head men run fast to him

one has no doubt but that he has

Once he learned a lesson from
an athlete. Barney used to work
out in a gymnasium on 28th Street,
along with other fellows who tried
to keep in shape. One afternoon he
was in the ring, boxing with a big
fellow who was almost twice his
size and strength. He landed sdme

after awhile beat him down until
the big one didn't want any more.
Just then somebody tapped Bar

champ, boy,-' he said to Barney.
"Keep after a man. You can never
tell when the other fellow's worse
off than you are."
If it is stored in a cramped closet
In the basement, attic, or utilitj

often enough because extra time

The homemaker should keep the
vacuum cleaner, its attachment
and all cleaning supplies togethei
in a compact storage unit.
