then gets his cash percentage backI
The joker comes when, instead of
falling, the stock rises after the short
seller has sold the stock which he
borrowed. There is much hair tear-
ing at this juncture on the part of the
"bear," as the short seller is called. He
is being stripped more and more as
the stock rises higher. Should he buy
now before it gets higher or should1
he wait and hope that the rising mar-1
ket will hit an air-pocket and fall 1
before the date on which he has to
pay the stocktback? This is one of
the reasons why many short-sellers
wind up as drooling idiots.(
Short-selling is justified economi-
cally, because it is supposed to provide
a "cushion" to stop security prices
from falling more than they would if
there were no short-selling, and be-'
cause it is supposed to help provide1
a check to keep security prices from
rising too high, Professor Waterman
According to the "cushion" theory,I

stocks are falling lower and lower
check this decline by buying the
stock to pay back the loan of the
shares which they sold when the
market was high. This demand or

Next Hampstead
Play Abolishes
Curtain Drops
Reviving that ancient custom of
the French medieval drama, simul-
taneous stage setting, the Hampstead
Players will present the early French
farce "Comical Adventures of Master
Peter Panthelin" in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, November 17 and
18. Tickets will be sold at the box-
office starting Friday, November 15.
"The play will mark an attempt
to capture the flavor of the medieval
French drama with the seasoning of:
modern lighting and property tech-
nique, commented Oren Parker,
Art Director of Play Production, who
is acting as technical adviser for the
play. To capture this medieval "fla-
vor," a simultaneous indoor stage is
to be used for the first time in the
history of University drama.
By simultaneous stage setting, Par-
ker explained, is meant a stage in
which there are no changes of scen-
ery or curtain drops to indicate lapses
of place or time. Instead all the set-
tings for the various scenes occupy
separate portions of the stage, and
as the action of the players shifts
from one set to another, the attention
of the audience naturally focuses
upon the particular set where the ac-
tion is taking place.

The other theory holds that short-]

In other words it is argued ,that if.
there were no short selling stock
prices would, in times of optimism,
soar beyond sine heights because
there would be a greater demand for
stock at existing prices than there
would be supply at those prices.
Because prices did rise higher, more
buyers would come into the field
boosting securities into the ether be-
yond reason and economic health.
