They bore the title Word Magic. From Bentham to Basic English Ogden's intellectual discoveries of 1928 launched him on the busiest years of his life. His systematic study of Jeremy Bentham's writings led (see 126 for detailed chronology) to a series of articles in Psyche (58-63), to books (9, 13, 14), and to further articles (71, 73, 95). The Bentham studies led, in turn, to Ogden*s development of Basic English. Whereas Ogden1s early enthusiasm for Lady Welby1s work had soon waned, Benthamiana (137) animated his intellectual world for over twenty-five years.

Those steps required the formation of an Inter-departmental Committee, involving six ministries. It soon became the bane of Ogden's existence. The development of Basic English never became the main thrust of the Committee's work. From the outset, its time was given, almost completely, to the details of establishing a Basic English Trust. 205 The aversion kept Ogden away from all meetings. He was represented by his trusted friend, Sir Percy Ashley, Chairman of the British Rayon Corporation. But Ogden was present in absence.

A few years later, most of the unwanted stock had been bought up, and Ogden responded to the publisher's request for Psyche with thinly veiled smugness: As regards the offer of 9 pounds each for two sets of Psyche for the continent, I'm afraid we can't reduce on the advertised price of 18 pounds a set, less the necessary discount. 175 In his own articles in Psyche, Ogden gave 43 Biography free rein to his limitless interests. Early items retain something of the themes and perspective of his Cambridge Magazine contributions (53, 106).
