'A organizations.

John Graham Brooks Discusses Gov

the Roosevelt Policies.
"Draw an Immonse circle. Call It
Industrial life. In the clrclp Is a con
trnl portion which represents tho In
dustries regulated by our govornmont.
Almost tho whole country Is plttod
against this part." So said Mr. John
Graham Brooks In n recont address
boforo'tho students or Michigan Uni
versity, on "Tho Socialist's Chnllongo
to Modern Socloty."
Mr, Brooks, as prosldont of tho Am
erlcan Social Sclenco Association, ad
dressed himself to tho studonts of the
present, for ho believes that from
thorn must come tho solution of tho
problem presented by our monopolies.
While not a socialist hlmsolf, ho
stated admirably and with all fair
ness tho condition of that party to tho
effect that all Industries to be Justly
administered must be owned and op

without nny idea of profits. Thon
ho proceeded to. show that there Is
another solution. Ho said:
"It would show tho blindness of a

take tho course other nations have.
