Taking for his subject. "The Relationship of Economics to Politics in International Co-operation." the speaker explained the part each had played in settling the obligations incurred by the nations during the World War. Politics he delineated as the "gaudy mistress" of the world, "eternally at outs with economics, the force of which pays the bills and keeps the wheels turning." AMERICA TOO RICH "I have great confidence in Germany's ability to pay, although only time will tell whether the burden placed upon her shoulders is too great for her to bear." he said. "Nothing is clearer from the experience of the last ten years than the necessity of keeping our economic machinery free from the domination of politics. "Isolation of America, either eco nomic or political, is impossible. Let no man think that the living stana ards of this company can be per manently maintained at a measurably higher level than those of other civilized nations.
