As head of the nation's second-largest mutual fund company, Vanguard Group Chairman John C. Bogle has spent a lifetime championing low-cost investing and the concept of indexing: holding the bulk of your stock assets in a low-expense fund that simply replicates the broad market's performance. Since 1994, indexing has exploded in popularity with individual investors, as the blue-chip Standard & Poor's 500-stock index has racked up stellar gains--a trend that is continuing in 1997.

There aren't a lot of investment experts who will tell you what they said 10 years ago and just how much of it turned out to be right. But John C. Bogle isn't your average investment expert. Bogle, author of "Common Sense on Mutual Funds," is right most of the time, which differentiates him from 97% of the mutual fund managers who attempt to beat the market. When he updated his book this year for its 10th-anniversary edition, he put updated passages in red but left the original text, too, so that everyone could see how well his earlier advice held up. Batting average?

Vanguard Group founder John Bogle, a longtime critic of the mutual fund industry, is pushing the Securities and Exchange Commission to expand its disclosure rules on the pay of top executives at fund firms. Issuers of open- and closed-end mutual funds should be required to disclose how they compensate their highest-paid officers, Bogle wrote in a Monday letter to the SEC posted on the agency's website. He also recommended that the deferred compensation provided to senior executives be disclosed.

"Common Sense on Mutual Funds: New Imperatives for the Intelligent Investor;" by John C. Bogle; ($24.95; John Wiley & Sons). In 445 compelling pages, John Bogle, a founding father of the mutual fund industry, gives readers a sense of how they should invest a portfolio of mutual funds--and why they should be wary of the motives of mutual fund companies. Throughout the book, he adheres to his lifelong credo: "When all else fails, fall back on simplicity."

A Vanguard Group mutual fund lost about $1 million in April while engaged in short-selling, a technique that is rarely used in the fund industry. The short sales by the Vanguard Horizon Fund Capital Opportunity Portfolio represented a bet that technology stocks would fall. Tech stocks rose instead, forcing the fund's outside advisor, Husic Capital Management, to terminate the short sales at a loss, according to a Vanguard shareholder report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Call it bye and hold. E-Trade Group Inc.'s mutual funds chief resigned Friday, saying his belief in buying and holding stocks and funds didn't match the company's strategy of catering to frequent traders. An Internet brokerage likes to trade a lot--who knew? Brian Murray, a vice president at the Menlo Park, Calif., company, will leave March 1 to help start a venture capital firm and possibly an online financial services company.

A month after mutual fund giant Vanguard Group said it would enforce its mandatory retirement policy on founder and Senior Chairman John C. Bogle Sr.--and after Bogle vowed he wasn't about to resign--both have had a change of heart. The 70-year-old Bogle, a legendary figure in the fund industry and the father of low-cost index mutual funds, agreed Friday to step down from Vanguard's board, ending a public relations nightmare for the Valley Forge, Pa.-based company.

The dollar plummets. The trade deficit soars. A renegade derivatives trader brings down a venerable London bank. It's more than enough to give an investor the jitters. In tumultuous times like these--and what times aren't tumultuous?--it's especially worthwhile to consider the strategies of investors famed for their success over the long haul. While many are losing their heads, here's the current thinking of four who aren't: stock-market sages Peter Lynch, John C.
