Commercial Titans Traced
Through Recent Decades
By'Harvard Press Head
Big business in America reached
the zenith of its power and influence
in the two generations following the
Civil War, Prof. Dumas Malone, di-f
rector of the Harvard University
Press told the Graduate Study Pro-
gram in American Culture and In-
stitutions yesterday.
Dr. Malone placed the end of the
greatest business era at the World
War and named J. P. Morgan as the
last great figure. Henry Ford, he
said, is the leader in the period of
the automobile industry.
Golden Age
The golden age of business can be
divided into several classifications.
They are the pre-corporate time of
business, the merchant prince era,
the railroaders and industrialists,
the greatest group, and the lords of
The pre-corporate type is typified
by John J. Astor, whose fortune was
based on New York real estate, he
said, while Alexander T. Stuart, who
opened his first store in 1823 and
reached his peak in 1862, was an
early New York merchant prince.
Later ones were Marshall Field and
John Wanamaker.
Cornelius Vanderbilt
The first creator of a great rail-
way system was Cornelius Vander-
bilt, but he was topped by the great-
est empire builder of them all, James
J. Hill, Dr. Malone pointed out. The
leading industrialists were Andrew
Carnegie and John D. Rockefeller.
In Dr. Malone's opinion Carnegie
rates as the greatest business man of
all time and also one of the greatest
personalities. Carnegie believed in

the trusteeship of wealth and said
that wealth should be acquired and
then distributed. Rockefeller had a
sense of social responsibility and was
the world's greatest philanthropist.
Two tendencies in all these busi-
ness'men, said Malone, are the move-
ments from fortunes in land to for-
tunes in paper and from fortunes
acquired by services to fortunes ac-
quired by financing.
Speaking of the present totalitar-
ian economics, he declared: "It is not
surprising that after the extreme
emphasis on paper the leadership of
the world has passed into the hands
of ruthless advocates of an economy
of things."

Data Is Prepared

By A. P. Blaustein
When one thinks of baseball
slumps this year one seems to think
of the New York Yankees, 3 to 1
favorites to win the pennant back in
April, but the biggest slump has been
that of the St. Louis Cardinals who
were picked by 60 per cent of the
sports writers to win the National
League title three months ago.
The Yankees, of course, have not
run anywhere near top form but
they are still only seven games out
of first place. St. Louis, on the oth-
er hand, is in fifth place, 18 games
behind the Cincinnati Reds.
Big factors in the Cardinals' fail-
ure has been the pitching of Curt
Davis who was sold to the Dodgers
a few weeks ago, and the despondent
hitting of most of their regulars.
Davis, who had won about 10 games
this time last year, had lost four and
had no victories when he was traded.
In the field of batting percentages,
last year's leading Cardinal slugger,
Padgett, dropped from .399 to .235
while Mize, who won the batting
crown last October with a mark of
.349 is now hitting '.282.,
In addition Terry Moore and Enos
(Country) Slaughter, rated as two
of the best outfielders in the League
when they hit .299 and .320 in 1939,
are at present battingdonly .272 and
.282. The only St. Louis player who
has been hitting well is old Pepper

Liberty off State
Formerly Esquire Barbers

More than 3,500 alumni of the
University andcitizens of 39 states
and 10 foreign countries received
reading lists prepared by the Library
Extension Service during the past
These lists, which are meant for
persons who wish to do special read-
ing on some subject but do not know
which books will best satisfy their
needs, range from such topics as
the technology of paint and varnish
to more timely ones on national and
international events.
The compilation of these lists was
begun in 1929, and since that time
approximately 60,000 lists have been
sent out. In cooperation with the
Bureau of Alumni Relations of the
University, the Extension Service has
revised and published many of these
lists in paper-bound books under the
titles, "What to Read": and "Alumni
Reading Lists," the third volume of
which appeared last year.
