So Ben illustrated the situation to the pupils by a little experiment. He wrote on the blackboard: „ STRENGTH THROUGH DISCIPLINE! “.And he started to give the teenagers certain commands. The children were interested in the solidarity and so Ben went on with his test. The next slogan he put up was: „STRENGTH THROUGH COMMUNITY! “.
With these two rules the pupils got the feeling that they were acting like one single person. Even outsiders like Robert were integrated in the group and so a real organization was built up. Mr. Ross decided to call it THE WAVE. He even developed a special salutation and certain member-cards. So the little school class of the beginning was growing into a real movement. Some members tried to recruit new ones and others started to control the others if they obeyed the three rules: Strength through discipline, Strength through community, Strength through action. But by the time Ben’s girlfriend and the headmaster of the Gordon High School, the school where Ben worked, started to worry because they were afraid that the experiment might get out of control. But Ben was able to reassure them and so he went on with it.
One day Laurie Saunders, the editor of the school-newspaper found an anonymous letter in the editorial office. The writer said that pupils of the school were forced to join THE WAVE. She did not know what to do and so she went home. There her father told her that a Jewish boy had been beaten up by some members of the Wave. She decided to bring out a special edition of the newspaper in which she reported about THE WAVE. When Ben read the newspaper he was shocked. He had never realized that the group had become that big. David, another member, went to Laurie because he wanted to tell her to stop these actions. But she could convince him that THE WAVE was a bad organization. They went to Mr. Ross and told him to stop the movement the same evening. Upon that Ben called in a big assembly the next afternoon. There he showed all the teenagers their real leader and the reason for his experiment: HITLER. Now the pupils realized that they had been manipulated successfully like the German young people under Hitler.
