Foreword
Thetreatment
goldhas
received
by
the
United
States
government
in
thepast
fewdecades
. . .
or
ever
since
the
first
administration
of
FDR
...
could
easily
be
designated
a
crime,
and the
perpetrators
traitors
to
the
American
people.
During
that
eraencouraged
inflation has lost
these
same
people
close
to
200
billion
dollars'
inpurchasing power.
At the
sametime
our
government has refused
to
revalue
gold to
meetthe
commodity
inflation.
Neither
has
it
given consideration
to
the
extra
loadgold has
been
forced
to
take
in
handling
free
world
finances.
Adding furtherinjury
the
FDR
administration
made
it
impossible
for
America's
gold
mines
to
aid
by
shutting
down
domestic production.
This
was
done
by
Roosevelt's
infamous
Gold Mine
Closing
Order
L-20S.
He
also
made it
a
crime
to
ownorhold
gold,
ordering
it
all
turned
into
the
Treasury.
One year
later
FDR
raised
the
price,
thus
cheating
the
owners
of
the
turned-in
gold
tothe
extent
of $14.33
per
ounce.
Then
came
the
Bretton Woods Agreement framed
by
Communistsin our government
employ.
It
made our
donars
spentin
foreigncountriesconvertible
to
U.
S.
Treasury
gold.
Our
money
spent
guaranteeing
the
safety
of
foreignersgets like
treatment.
Likewise
American
investmentsbuilding foreign industries leaves
a
trail
of
dollars
subject
to
conversion
to
U.
S.
Treasury
gold.
Mter
convertingover
nine
billions
of
them there
remains over
$27
billion
awaiting
the
conversion process
whenwe
don'thave
the
gold
for
that
purpose.
Even
using
the
$12.3
billions
legally
needed
to
back Federal
Reserve Notes
and
Deposits
we
don't haveenough
to
make
the
conversion.
This
is
the
plot
agreed
to
by
our
so
called
monetary
managers.
What
a
hold
this
gives
foreign
banking
in
terests
on our
taxpayersl
This
volume,
whilepartially
fiction,
as
to
its
main
characters,
brings
out undeniable
evidence of
the
above
charges.
Monetary
conditions
described have
been
approved by
Congress
and
past
and
present
admin
istrations. Specially
named
congressmen,
by
their own
admissions
have
given
their
blessing
to the
Treasurygetting
rid
of
all
U.
S.
gold
and
putting
the
nation's
vast
debt
of
$315
billion
and
inflationary
losses
onthe
taxpayers'
property
and
savings.
It
is a
story
of
a
young New
York
newspaperman who
wanted
to
go
gold
mining
in
California.
It
brings
out
what
Washington
has
done
to
a
basic industry while relating
the
mining
adventures
of its
principal
character.
It
is
highly
factual,
the
result
of
the
author's
thirty
years'experience
in
mining
publicity.

CHAPTER
1
The
N
ew York
Newspaper
Strike
R
ETURNING
from
a
dismal
day
spent
at
Typographical Union headquarters
on
the
49th
day
of
the
New
York
newspaper
strike,
Harold
Wilson
and
Joe
Bacon,
news writers onone
of
the
nine
struck
news
papers,
were more
than
disgusted
with
the
situation.
The
lack
of
their
weekly
pay
checks
had
run
their
savings
accounts to low
levels.
Theyand
their
families
had
passed
a
dismal Christmas
and
entered
a
new
year
withoutanyprospect
of
their
jobs
openingup.
On that
49th
day
of
the
strike
Harold
took
some
encouragement out
of
an
AP
report
reading:
WAGNER
STEPS
INTO
NEWSPAPER STRIKE
NEW
YORK
-
Mayor
Robert
F.
Wagner
offered
yesterday
to
person
ally
conduct marathon
mediations
aimed
at
settling
the
city
newspaper
strike
nowin
its
49th
day.
Shortly
after
a
two-hour
joint
negotiating
session
brought
reports on
no progress from striking
printers
and
publishers,
Wagner
issued
a
callfor
the marathon
sessions.
''I'llpersonally
sit
with
both
sides
and
will
be
available
at
all
times
and
will
emphasize
that
they must
stay
here until
an
equitable
settlement
is
reached,"
Wagner
said.
"Idon't
see
much
chance
of
the
Mayor
doing
anything
for
us",
moodily
said
Joe.
"A
politician
can't take
sides;
he's
got
to
take
both
sides
and
play
the
middle."
"Well,"
responded
Harold,
<eHe
mayget
some place. Anyway
it's
betterthan
waiting
for
something
to
happen.
I
have
a
home
and
a
family
to support.
I
will
say
the
folks
did
their
best
getting
by
Christmas
with
verylittle
of
the
usual
remembrances
as
far
as
presents
are
con
cerned.
Mter
almost
two
months
and
no
pay
check
they
realized
thatit
will soon
be
a
matter
of
eating with no money
for
the
rent
collector."
"It's
a
tough
dear,
said
Joe.
"1
haven't
a
home
and
a
family
to
sup
port
like
you
have
and
I
don't
like
the
deal
we
have to
putup
with
-
going
on
a
strikeevery
time
a
bunch
of
hot head
Labor
leaders
want
to show
their
strength.
The
printers
are
now
getting
$145 a
week
-
and
a
short
week.
How
can
they
expectmore?
The
newspapers are right;it
isn'tin
the
business
to
pay
more.
They have
tried
everything: using
a
lot of
pictures,
big
headlines
and
a
fatter linotype
slug.
Ad rates
areout
of
sight
and
if
theprinters
win they
will
have
to
go
up.
I
for
oneam
thinking
of
tryingsomethingelse
and
not
inNew
York. I
think
I
can
bid
it
Goodbye
with
a
lot
of
pleasure.""Reh!
What
do you
mean"?
questioned
Harold.
"You
have
been
aN
ew
York
news
hound
so
long
that you
could
not
make
it
at
anything
else
or
in
any other
place".«That's
what
you
think"~
quickly
responded
Joe.
"I'm fed
up
ondepending
on
striking
printers
to
make
up
their minds
and
with
the
BigCity'severlastingsnow.
I
am
going
to sunny
California".
