Chate lauded Russian control of oil operations as compared to those of this country and also declared that the Soviet state had demonstrated to the world that money is not entirely essential to development of a program of public works. As his lecture concluded, questions were allowed the audience. "I'd like to know," asked one auditor, "if Mr. Chase would like to stay In Russia or here if he had no ties?" QUERY HELD IMPROPER Prof. Max Radin of the University of California Law School and chairman of the evening, deemed the question an "Improper" one but declared that Chase could answer if he desired. The economist rose from his chair with a smile. "I'd like to run back and forth," he answered and sat down. Only by bringing the wage and salary scale higher and keeping a steady purchasing power can aid be given to a return to normalcy, Chase said. "Stop saving as we have been doing in the past," he declared. "We have been over-saving. That's one of the reasons for our present condition." "If we are going to have a mechanical civilization, we have got to control that civilization," he said. "We can't let it drift aimlessly. I believe an epoch has ended. We arc in the red and we promise to stay in the red until we make extreme, drastic changes along lines of coordination." WASTE OF AMUSEMENT A nation Which spends more on "artificial fun" than it does in running its government, the lecturer said, presented a problem of the use of leisure time. "Most people take their recreation sitting down." he said. He scored "social standardization" and the making of a nation of "one dead level of Babbits, all engaged in the struggle of keeping up with the Joneses."
