Copeland answers Technocrats
With New Reconstruction Plan
By JOHN W. PRITCHARD
A five-point plan, designated as
"some illustrative concrete moves"
toward financial regeneration of the
nation, was advanced Friday by Prof.
Morris A. Copeland of the economics
department as a counter-suggestion
to take the place of solutions pre-
sented by the group of Technocrats
In a subsequent interview, Prof. A.
H. White of the chemical engineer-
ing department of the engineering
molleg*, stated that the Technocrats
are correct when they insist on a re-
duction of working hours for each in-
dividual. He questioned certain points
of technocracy, however, and profes-
xed some difficulty in understanding
what the group meant in several of
Emphasis Called Misplaced
The idea of permanent technologi-
;al employment was attacked yes-
yerday by Professor Copeland, who
3tated, "When Technocrats empha-
size the important part which tech-
nological changes have played in
ringing about the present derange-
:nents of our economic system, they
ire at one with the findings of eco-
aomists. (F e w economists would
tgree, however, that technological
:hange is the sole cause of our pres-
,nt difficulties). But when the Tech-
iocrats imply that the introduction
>f a labor-saving device causes a per-
nanent decrease in the percentage of
;he population which is able to find
obs inder the existing type of eco
iomnic organization, they are voicing
'n ancient opinion which most eco-
nomists have rejected. If the job dis-
?lacement caused by introducing a
labor-saving device were permanent,
resent unemployment would be vast-
y larger than it is. Past displace-
ments have been partly absorbed by
decreases in working time, but to a
far greater extent by the increased
density of population and by 'higher'
standards of living.
"There is no good reason to sup-
pose that the present technologically
unemployed, except those who are
superannuated, will not be absorbed
promptly into other lines of work.
But there is reason to believe that
this process, slow and painful if left
to work itself out, may be hastened
by improved job information and
made less painful by appropriate re-
Moreover, even if a specific techno-
logical change does not cause per-
manent job displacement, continued
change, if we take no steps to stop
it, presumably will cause continuing.
technological unemployment. Per-
sonally I believe that we can and
should decrease the extent to which
technological unemployment is prof-
itable to employers, even if in so do-
ing we retard the rate of technical
change. The legal dismissal wage is
a mild first step in this direction.
Not Entirely Clear
"Technocracy," Professor Copeland
declared, "finds the 'price system' on
the verge of collapse. What this
means is not entirely clear. It ap-
pears to be associated with an ad-
dition to the list of monetary nos-
trums, a list already far too long.
But it is much broader than this,
although it clearly does not mean
that our system of pricing and cost-
ing is to go. It seems to be a way of
saying that we should substitute
economic planning for laissez faire.
We have already moved a long way.

Beer Bill In
Discussed; Assailed As

Beck Was Only Defender
Of Bill; Cannon Takes
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.--()-A
Senate judiciary sub-committee to-
night made ready to act on the
House 3.2 per cent beer bill after
public hearings at which friends and
foes of the legislation bombarded the
members with conflicting views on
the constitutionality of the measure.
Half a dozen representatives of or-
ganizations supporting Prohibition
assailed the bill as a proposal "to
nullify" the Constitution and said it
would legalize traffic in intoxicating
A lone defender of theabill, Rep.
James M. Beck, (Rep., Pa.) said it
came within the "field of legislative
discretion" and predicted the Su-
preme Court wouldruphold it.
The hearing ended in a discussion
between. Beck and Bishop James
Cannon, Jr., on. the question of
whether the wine used in the Biblical
marriage sacrament at Canna was
fermented and a controversy over the
significance of the recent election.
Following the hearing Chairman
Blaine announced the sub-commit-
tee would meet early next week to
act on the bill. He suggested that it
might be redrafted to eliminate pos-
sible constitutional objections.
The full juciary committee will
meet Monday to "conider a favorable

NEW YORK, Jan. 7.-P-)-Doors
of Grand Central Palace were thrown
open today on a scintillating display
of automobiles which the manufac-
turers hope will bring millions of
dollars out of hiding and help re-
turn America to economic normality.
It is the thirty-third national au-'
tomobile show, and the thousands
who swarmed through the doors saw,
for the first time, an exhibition that
has many aspects of a three-ring cir-
Instead of the usual assortment of
motionless cars, they igoked on acres

And it was like a circus because
there is so much to see-four floors
filled with displays, along a route
that takes 107 minutes to cover at a
normal walking pace, even if you
don't do any stopping.
Twenty-eight' domestic makes of
passenger cars, one foreign car and
nine trucks are represented.
The cheapest automobile in the
show Is one of four cylinders at $275.
The' other extreme is a 12-cylinder
car marked $10,000. "A study in tan"
they call it-a vast, ultr'a-stream-line
creation resembling a cross between a
giant beetle, a millionaire's yacht
and an armored war machine. It
represents what its designers say the
car of 1943 will look like.
As the show opened many manu-
facturers announced they had cut
last year's prices from $200 to $400.
