LcROSSIGNOL Oca/:, College of Bushiest Administration., Nebraska University "Have you ever encountered a dilemma, Sandie?" inquired Professor MacAndrcw CantHe of his clever Scottie. "No? Then you have never been in a quandary either, nor at the parting ot the ways, between two Ores, between Scylla and Chary bills, nor b e t w e e n the devil and the deep b l u e sea. Ah! Now I sec a gleam of comprehension In y o u r eye. Ono ot those metaphors h i t you, did It not? Yes, for only yesterday you were in the back alley with a vicious dog at one end and a fierce cat at the other, and J see by your face that you tackled the cat. Then and there was % dilemma, Sandic. "Aweel! In the trough of the late major depression our ruling powers were confronted by a puzzling dilemma, cither horn or which had its advantages and disadvantages, rewards and penalties, for, as the French truly say, ev«rything has the defects of its qualities. It had to do with the perplexing question of money, credit, and prices in relation to recovery, on which, u you know, the doctors differ. "Look. Sandle! If. on the one hand, they allowed the maladjustments to acljuat themselves according to the time-honored or dishonored rule of lalsscz-/atre, they had reason to expect slow and sure recovery, but they would havo teen accused by all the pressure groups of standing for low prices, low wages, low profits, and ·widespread bankruptcy because of ridd, irreducible debts. If, on the other hand, they tried for inflation they misht look for rising prices, wages arjd profits, relatively rapid recovery, and popular approval as expressed by votes; but they faced also the possibility of excessive expansion and rising costs, to be followed, sooner or later, by a minor recession, if not a major dcpressioi). "As you know, Sundie, the powers that be chose the more promising and less threatening horn of the dilemma, nnd for a time we enjoyed the blessing of liberal expenditure, rising prices and paper profits. But after a time, becoming apprehensiveaboutthc dangers of inflation they began to apply the brakes appropriate to a managed currency: raising the reserve requirements of the banks, reducing gilts, promising further reduction, and forecasting increasing taxes and a balanced budget. It was a series of shock*, Sandic, nnd a sudden awakening from our dream of bliss which brought about this untimely and unwelcome reaction, rclnpse, or recession, the aftermath of our little whirl, from ·uhich, I hope, we shall soon recover. "Snd to say, Snndic, now that we arc in the dumps, that nasty nightmare of a dilemma, with Its sharp horns, face*; us again with Us offer of the bitter with the sweet. To change the figure, we are once more at the parting of the ways where, as Mr. Secretary Wallace would say, 'America must choose.' But which path shall' it be? The high road of inflation, with its joyful riiini! and expansion followed by the Inevitable contraction and descent, or the low road of temporary deflation and depression for the nkc of belter going bevond. **We art- jrtorl. Snndic McCraw, that the rosoo^sibility of decision is not ours, for. like all cannv Scots, we have a sort of second sight that makes us sacrifice the present to the expected greater nood of n more or less distant future.
