Allen, widely known economist of New York City, in testimony on the Townsend Plan said, "Machines have no conscience. They are as willing to crush people as they are to help them—still science and invention have become the greatest tools of democracy." Yes, machines are slowly taking the place of labor. We must adjust our economics to i'it in. with this age. It anyone should retire from the ilabor market, it should be the oldsters. \Ve must not use force to :to this. Instead we must figure an economic way or tin inducement for them to retire from gainful occupation and yet remain in 'the buyers market. This can be done through the Townsend Plan.
