"The 10-year S. F. 7s, due 1930, of the B. B. and R. Knight Company are quoted around 54 and 55. As you doubtless know, this concern is one of the oldest in the textile business, and is now a part of the Consolidated Textile Corporation. The security back of the bonds is a first mortgage on all the real estate and properties of the B. B. and R. Knight Company. Unquestionably they suffer from the depression in this industry, as well as from the shifting of certain types of work from North to South.”

UST what do you mean by diversifi
cation?" readers continue to ask from time to time. One of the best answers is a specific illustration. Such an example comes in the recently published record of the securities owned by the late Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. Exclusive of real estate, the value of the property left was approximately $1,000,000. The larger items are:
864 shares General Electric,
500 shares E. G. Budd Mfg.,
ferred, 700 shares U. S. Smelting, Refining and
180 shares Otis Elevator,
142 shares Kansas City Stockyards, $30,000 U. S. Government bonds, 20,000 Northern Pacific bonds.

Florida's Five Reasons
for 8%and Safety
Evidently, Mr. Lodge preferred stocks to bonds, and he bought common stocks rather than preferred. The companies include most of the great groups as conventionally named. There is the automobile group in the Budd stock; mining in two stocks; public utilities in two stocks; industrial in General Electric; and how shall we classify Otis Elevator and the stockyards securities? One might question the wisdom of such large blocks, but there is true diversification here. The list is worth pondering.
THE \HE five reasons for the 8% rate

S EVERAL recent inquiries of more than
individual interest to the inquirer are summarized in these letters from this department:
I "The stock of Libby, McNeil & Libby is regarded as a speculative stock at this time. American Woolen preferred is the stock of a very strong corporation. The textile industry, however, has been having difficulties, and the American Woolen Company has suffered. On the basis of the record of the last five years, its average income for the preferred has not been quite enough to pay it, and surplus was drawn upon.
"You could find a stock to invest in which would not have this element of uncertainty.”
II "The Miller Company is a sound company, and one on whose statements you can rely. We always urge our readers, when considering real estate bonds, to study carefully the description and base their judgment on such study.
“Whether the return on Procter & Gamble common
on present prices is attractive or not, it should be realized that a stock in a corporation of this kind is a partnership share in the business, with the opportunity of appreciation in value as the business grows with the growth of the country.”
III "In regard to the common stock of the Brooklyn City Railroad, this is not what we would call a high-grade investment stock. In the past the company has paid good dividends, and, of course, may do so again. If you can afford to hold a stock in which there is a moderate degree of risk, don't sell. If, on the other hand, without too heavy a capital loss, you can reinvest in something more conservative to even with less present earnings, do so.”
Build both together
The forward looking man builds up two incomes—one from his business or profession, one from his bond investments. If he has been wisely investing his surplus, he will have an income from his securities to fall back upon should his business income fall off at times. The more carefully he has invested, the more dependable this income.

Arizona was one of the States we mentioned as sure to claim a tax. The general counsel points out that the Arizona law is patterned after that of Oklahoma and Illinois. “I have no doubt that the Arizona statute will be held either inapplicable to such transfers or invalid as being beyond the authority of the State,” he writes.

ERHAPS the following letter from this
department to a reader in Rhode Island will be of general interest:
"National Cash Register Preferred. This is the 7 per cent cumulative preferred stock of a very large and prosperous corporation. It is stated that over two and a quarter million of its machines are now in use and 'that its production is at the rate of 12,000 a month. Of the authorized issue of 20,000,000, there is outstanding 9,647,050. The stock is $100 par. Dividends are paid regularly. On the basis of the last four years' results, average income available for the preferred is $2,691,049 as against dividend requirement of $810,000. The equity of each share of preferred is $122.97. The stock is of high investment quality.
“United Drug First Preferred. This is a 7 per cent cumulative preferred in a strong and well-managed corporation. Authorized and outstanding, 12,500,000. Together with the small issue of noncumulative second preferred on the basis of five years' results, average income for dividends is $3,738,239 as against a dividend requirement of $2,049,000. Clearly an investment stock.
“Bigelow-Hartford Carpet Company, formerly the Bigelow Carpet Corporation. Another old-established and well-managed concern. The stock is a 6 per cent cumulative preferred, with 2,724,000 outstanding. On the basis of five years' results, the average income available is $2,838,966 as against the dividend requirement of $163,458. The equity is $643.34. Also a high-grade investment.
"Standard Oil of New Jersey. Without going into the details, which can easily be supplied, this stock (the preferred) is also a first-class investment.
"Preferred stocks of this type should form some portion of an investment fund. Some object to preferred stocks because of the limitation of dividend and the fact that such stocks do not appreciate as much as the common.”
