"How Are You Fixed for Arks?", Detroit Free Press (Detroit, Michigan): 48, 7 October 1955,, "Oh, well, nothing much is going to happen to us except that any day now the axis of the world will shift and there'll be a flood just like Noah's. All of this is "authenticated" by big two-column ads being run in many newspapers by the Barber Scientific Foundation of Washington, D.C. The foundation is selling books and will use the money from the books to persuade Congress to take action and build boats, moored at every street corner, to save civilization. The foundation also notes with contempt and loathing a "chosen few" who are attempting to "build boats for themselves." The foundation is, somewhat symbolically, headed by a barber named Adam. He is willing to "go into bankruptcy over our head to do it, as money will be worthless and everybody starts with a clean slate after the flood.""
