Prophet Appeals to Elite
Truth, Light, Reality and a hand in the "replanting of the sacred and seminal Mosaic vision of the Wholeness of the Tree of Life" are the benefits offered the youth of the world by a strange pamphlet entitled "Logos--First Seed of the Fourth Planting."
The copy which the CRIMSON received this week is one of a special first edition of 500 copies which was sent to 100 of the "most princely young Americans" and a select list of 225 of the "cream of the elect of life on earth." These latter include President Conant, Harlow Shapley, Paine Professor of Practical Astronomy, and Percy W. Bridgman, Higgins University Professor.
Booklet the Work of Guide Mosig
The final portion of a novel "Of Aton the Forceful Fields and the Messiah," the booklet is the work of Guido Mosig, who claims that he is the contemporary prophet of the line of "Zarustha-Brahman-aspati-Moses-Jesus."
To participate in the replanting of the Tree of Life. Mosig calls first upon the 225 elect whom he subdivides into the Managers, the Influencers, and the Scientists. Among these are Douglas MacArthur, Henry Luce, Pandit Nehru, Hirohito, Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Plus XII, General Ridgway, Eddie Rickenbacker, J. Edgar Hoover, King Farouk, Walt Disney, Greta Garbo, Evita Peron, Dashiell Hammett, and Dorothy Thompson. He claims that he sent a copy of his pamphlet to each one of these.
His second appeal is to the "tremendously fertile and socially significant fraction of young men and women in our universities." He says that "it is among these fresh and precious souls, well lubricated, enflamed and integrated with beer, romantic love and lusty singing that this allegory will find its most fertile soil."
