They are Chief Justice Hughes and Justices Van p vanter, McReynoJds, Brandeis and Sutherland. ' SHOW B4NDITS THEATER RAIDED; HUB! CAST ARRESTED Gen. H. H.

Technocracy Explained By SIDNEY B.

(Signed) THE FUOITT TVTBW YORK, Jan. 3. ered, through a press ngnnt, a small room at Columbia University full of charts nnd statistics, labeled "Toch- nocrftcy," tho nation's Imagination has boon stirred by n multitude of articles socking to explain tho "movement." On tho one side, tho Technocrats appeared to present a gloomy picture of tho future of humanity If tho economic system under which tho world has operated since the dawn of history is continued. On tho other they appeared to hold o\i.t not only n, euro for ccpnotnlo distress, but tho hopo for' a Utopia. Technocracy, a word coined In 1010 by William IT. Smith of Berkeley, Cnllf,, was scarcely knowp except to a few technologists, until Howard 'Scott, described by somo ns "a genius at technological figures," and by others as "an economic Rudy Valloe," employed It to propagandize the research, systom he established In that sninll room at Columbia. In Its early manifestations, technocracy appeared to offer a now systom to replace tho world's worn-out economic machinery—a system In which nobody would work more than two hours a dny and everybody would be happy and comfortable. Later, under tho proddlngs of skop- tlcnl economists, tho high priests of technocracy retreated from tholr position, and admitted their work was "nothing but research," and that aftex- tho research Is completed they "didn't know what could be done with It." In its present form, technocracy offers tho following theories, some of which arc common knowledge to economists, and Bonio of which they havo reduced to "formulae" and coucliort In language so technical that no lny- man could hopo to understand them: 1. Until about 100 years ago, tho world's ' work wns accomplished by manpower. 2. The mechanical ago has multiplied a worker's productive capability. One man now has at his disposal tho energy or power of 8,000,000 men under tho Pharaohs, tho Caesars, or, in fact, In tho Napoleonic era. 3. This age of oxccsslvo production has turned out commodities In so vast quuiiUUea that tho population, Increasing less rapidly than science has advanced, Is unable to absorb the excess, 4. The world, under thoso conditions, Is operating under a system of economics-— the prlco system — thut may have been efficient before tho mechanical age, but which Is not tuned up to modern requirements. B, Since profit, under this system, depends upon tho amount of goods that ran bo sold, tho Industrialists are bound to attempt, at least, to Increase tholr wealth by Increasing produclon, nnd tho profits they pile up and In turn reinvest. In further production. 0, AH wealth, at present, Is In tho form of "debts" — stocks and bond.i and debentures (and even money, which Is. n "debt" of the government — nnd these debts must bo paid by further debts, more stocks and bonds and money* Thoso, are tho theories. To substantiate them, tho technocrats have assembled a mass of figures and charts. What they propose to do with the Information remains to be told. Technocracy Is to Publish Newspaper NEW YORK, Jan, 3, — Technocracy Is to havo Its own newspaper, called "Tomorrow." Tho first Issue will appear on tho newsstands shortly. It Will carry no advertising, The aim of "Tomorrow" will bo to Interpret technocracy In simple lan- Rungo so that tho man In tho street will he nblr> to sot a clear Idea of what, tho technocrats are driving at.
