"What I'd do, I figured, I'd go down to the Holland Tunnel and bum a ride, and then I'd bum another one, and another one, and another one, and in a few days I'd be somewhere out West where it was very pretty and sunny and where nobody'd know me and I'd get a job. I figured I could get a job at a filling station somewhere, putting gas and oil in people's cars. I didn't care what kind of job it was, though. Just so people didn't know me and I didn't know anybody. I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something, they'd have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life. Everybody'd think I was just a poor deaf-mute bastard and they'd leave me alone. They'd let me put gas and oil in their stupid cars, and they'd pay me a salary and all for it, ..."

I was reading about Rockefeller. The one that made the Radio City Music Hall. When i came across a fact about his father.

The history of the Rockefeller family began, not with Standard Oil and not with honor, but with a con man, womanizer and a thief. Various authors note that the Rockefeller "oil" beginnings were not solely from "crude oil." John D. Rockefeller Seniors father, , "Big Bill," was a traveling salesman who advertised himself as a "William Rockefeller, the Celebrated Cancer Specialist" and who hawked "herbal remedies" and other bottled medicines." He guaranteed "All Cases of Cancer Cured Unless They Are Too Far Gone". Those claims allowed him to charge $25 for his magic cancer, which he retailed for $25 a bottle, a sum then equivalent to two month's wages. The "cure" survived until quite recently as Nujol, consisting principally of petroleum and peddled as a laxative. Nujol was manufactured by a subsidiary of Standard Oil of New Jersey, called Stanco, whose only other product, manufactured on the same premises, was the famous insecticide, Flit. [1]

"William posed as the town’s peddler that sold cheap novelties with a small board with the words "I am deaf and dumb" chalked across it, tied by a string to his shirt. Big Bill can be described as a faker that lived-off scamming from others, posing as mentally challenged" [2].

"He fled from a number of indictments for horse stealing, eventually disappearing altogether as William Rockefeller and magically re-emerging as a Dr. William Levingston of Philadelphia, a name which he retained for the rest of his life. An investigative reporter at Joseph Pulitzer's New York World received a tip that was followed up. The World then disclosed that William Avery Rockefeller had died May 11, 1906 in Freeport, Illinois, where he was interred in an unmarked grave as Dr. William Levingston." [3] He married Eliza Davison in 1837, and shortly thereafter brought Nancy Brown home, as a "housekeeper" who became an alternate lover and who also bore his children. [4]"

William Avery Rockefeller was a con-man. What did his son learn from him? Lives are not important, money is.

What do you think that the Radio City Music Hall was selling that Salinger would write:

"They were so ignorant, and they had those sad, fancy hats on and all. And that business about getting up early to see the first show at Radio City Music Hall depressed me. If somebody, some girl in an awful-looking hat, for instance, comes all the way to New York--from Seattle, Washington,

Hats in the Catcher when looking at the book from the point of view of an allegory on war are hunter...or soildiers.

Girls are those that are not privileged like those in Pency Prep.

Interesting because he built RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL before in 1930. He was probably one of the secret financiers that financed Germany in the 20's so they could build theaters and stadiums. Certainly he benefited greatly from the war.War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier.

When we think of ignorant and niave that is different from the word "moron" as Holden defined it. "Someone who never wants to discuss anything."

Would like to hear your thoughts on this? After reading my different post has it allowed you to see the possibility of an allegory about war and that he felt betrayed by his education and his country when he was at the concentration camps because those caualties were at the expence of some land and inustry and intellectual technology grabbers.
