TRAVEL AND DESCRIPTION
Donald Thompson in Russia. By Donald C.

Thompson. Illustrated. The Century Company, New York. $2. These letters from a Kansas man who has made himself famous as a war photographer are brimful of vivid description of exciting experiences. They give a realistic picture of Russia in her days of demoralization, which Mr. Thompson ascribes largely to German intrigue. The photographs are characteristically good. Mr. Thompson is a fervent patriot. “I use American lenses,” he says. “I have never used a German lens and never will.” One doesn't wonder, after reading how the Germans treated him in Belgium.

Central Europe. By George Abel Schreiner. Ilustrated. Harper & Brothers, New York. $2. An“ iron ration” is the name for the food the soldier carries with him in the field. It is the last food in sight and is conserved as such. The name, as given to this book, indicates the desperate straits to which the warring nations of Central Europe have been reduced. The author gives first-hand information, derived from his work as war correspondent, about things political, social, and psychological as well as economic. The book offers an intimate and individualistic view of war conditions in many countries.

The good that is bound to come out of the evil of war is foreshadowed in this suggestive book. A higher efficiency in our schools, that will reduce the vast number of misfits who now encumber our industrial and commercial life, is here outlined and urged. Wide-awake educators should buy and read this book.

FINANCIAL DEPARTMENT

All legitimate questions from Outlook readers about investment securities will be answered either by personal letter or in these pages. The Outlook cannot, of course, undertake to guarantee against loss resulting from any specific investment. Therefore it will not adrise the purchase of any specific security. But it will give to inquirers facts of record or information resulting from expert investigation, leaving the responsibility for final decision to the investor. And it will admit to its pages only those financial advertisements which after thorough expert scrutiny are believed to be worthy of confidence. All letters of inquiry regarding investment securities should be addressed to

TO READERS DESIRING IN-
FORMATION ABOUT

INVESTMENTS
ANY inquiries from readers re-
garding particular stock or bond
issues come to the Financial Ed-

itor's desk without any inclosure of circulars or prospectuses to enable an opinion to be formed as to the merit of the issues.

We would suggest, therefore, in all cases where readers inquire about companies not listed the New York Stock Exchange or fina: -ed by well-known banking houses that there be submitted for examination all the available printed matter. This will save a good deal of time and correspondence.

In all cases we need to have this information:

1. Name and address of bankers or brokers offering the issue.

2. Prospectus or descriptive circular of the company or security issue.

3. Financial statement, including balancesheet and income statement.

4. List of officers and directors.

If the investor cannot easily obtain all this information from the brokers offering the stock, then he should mark the issue off as undesirable and perhaps fraudulent.

A WARNING TO INVESTORS

We note an increase in the proportion of inquiries from readers of the Financial Department relating to fraudulent, wildcat, and highly speculative stocks. Reading

of the financial pages of a number of daily newspapers in the past few weeks indicates that the get-rich-quick financial buccaneers are again plying their trade, despite the vigilance of the authorities.

In the alluring bait in recent circulars and advertisements received from Outlook readers we find these choice specimens :

“This is your last chance to buy this stock at this low figure.”

“ One of the greatest opportunities ever presented for quick profits.

“ This stock will pay very large dividends."

“ Follow the example of Rockefeller, Carnegie, Ford, Armour, and the other great leaders and put your money at work.”

“ An investment absolutely guaranteed against loss and certain to pay handsome dividends."

“Only a limited amount of this stock will be sold to any one person.”

“ The opportunity of a lifetime to start a fortune.”

“ Delay is fatal-subscribe now.”
“ Telegraph us how many shares to hold

Such sentences in themselves arouse suspicion.

The Federal authorities in New York have begun another crusade against financial pirates, but wise investors should protect themselves.

Investigate before investing.
