In presenting the conservative
philosophy for the forties, at the gen-
eral session yesterday afternoon, Pro-
fessor Tracy expressed the hope that
the United States would abandon its
theory of isolation and would see its
way clear to cooperate with the other
peace-loving nations of the world in
avoiding war. In regard to economic
theory, he said, he believed in capi-
talism because it was the only system
that could afford the greatest good
to the greatest number of people.
He asserted that the profit motive'is
so strong in man that he will not
work unless he can see a definite,
tangible return for his labor. He de-
clared that he could not believe in
the theory of the planned economy
because he found it impracticable in
a democracy. Only with a leader who
is omnipotent and omniscient, he
asserted, could a planned eccnomy
become practicable.
Predicts Religious Revival
Professor Tracy said he hoped for
a revival of religion in the forties,
true religion having its roots in deep
human emotions. The trouble with
religion, today, he said, is that it has
been made too much a matter of in-
tellect and not of feeling.
He viewed present-day American
culture in two lights. First, he saw
a very dismal picture of thousands of
college graduates who give no evi-
dence of intellectual curiosity, who
are content to receive all their "in-
tellectual" and emotional stimulus
from the sports pages and magazines,
the Hollywood movie and jazz. How-
ever, Professor Tracy said, he saw
several bright spots in the Ameri-
can cultural scene today. There is
growing up, especially among the
young people, today a love of good
music: among each year's Hollywood
output there is an occasional one
which points to hope of better things.
Finally, Professor Tracy, empha-
sizing the priceless benefit the col-
lege student has in his education,
called for a wide dissemination of
culture, a breakdown of the intellec-
tual nionopoly which the great cities
of the United States hold today.
Wider Education Advocated
Professor Benson called upon the
liberal of the next decade to make his
liberalism a pragmatic attitude rath-
er than 'a hard and fast creed. De-
manding a more intelligent approach

to the social problems of the forties,
he advocated:I
a. wider education;
b. revivification of religion as a
basis of an ethical way of life;
c. wider dissemination of culture
to all parts of the United States, em-
phasizing the great contributions
which the immigrant refugees of the
past few years will make to American
d. the merit system in govern-{
ment; maintenance of constitutional
government for the protection of mi-
norities; "civilization" or socializa-
tion of Fapitalization; defense of so-
cial security; extension of economic
planning to make a system which
can easily produce enough to support
the whole population, do so; preser-
vation of freedom of thought, speech
and the press.
Presents Radical View
Professor Shepard, presenting the
"radical" point of view, foresaw a
shift to conservatism in the forties,
with an attempt at balancing the
budget which will be made at the ex-
pense of those now on relief. He saw
increasing class consciousness arising
from thq bitterness which will char-
acterize the administration - of relief.
With the removal of the "interfer-
ences" placed by the New Deal upon
business enterprise, will come the de-
cline of capitalism, he declared, as-
serting that capitalism as a system
cannot work because as profits in-
crease, power is concentrated in the
hands of the few and the purchasing
power of the mass decline.
Asserting that fascism is "the de-
velopment of business shibbolhs in-
to a form of insanity and enforced
at the point of a gun," he pointed out
that the movement probably will, as
in Germany, get out of control. Amer-
ican foreign policy, like that of the
rest of the democracies, will not be
rational in the forties, he said .
