TECHNICAL WORLD MAGAZINE FOR APRIL
WHO MAKES THE PRICE OF WHEAT? Thirty years ago David Lubin began asking himself that question. Graduated from the Ghetto of New York, he had drifted to California, developed into a wealthy merchant, and become inspired with the purpose to serve his fellow men.
California was the finest wheat country in the world, yet it could not raise wheat at a profit because "the market" was against it. Lubin wondered what "the market" might be, and why it prevented California from raising wheat that millions of people needed.
He set out to answer the riddle. Other men had been asking the same sort of questions from the dawn of economic science. Lubin went about it in a new way, and found the answer. That made him different.
In his remarkable article on David Lubin: the Ghetto Boy, Judson C. Welliver tells what this answer is, and how this once obscure Jew has brought together fifty nations in an economic world parliament. No stronger or bigger article has appeared in any magazine so far this year.
All the romance of the smuggling industry still flourishes on tl e Pacific Coast. Only it is men-the despised Chinese-not merchandise-whom cool and desperate crooks endeavor to slip ashore in the darkness of the night. "Yellow Contraband" is a thriller, and every word of it is true.
