An apology is due those who read
in the publicity given this play that
it had successful year runs in New
York and London. The error was
the result of misinformation. I
have not the facts at hand now, but
this is certain that the play was a

THE CONTROL OF THE MACHINE
Commenting on the development
of the machine age in his recent
publication, "Men and Machines,"
Stuart Chase, president .of Labor
Bureau, Inc., and former member
of the Federal Trade Commission,
declared that instead of man be-,
ing made the slave of the ma-
chine, as has often been said, "en-
gines have been enslaved by 'man."
The worst danger, he averred, is
that any time in the future, ma-'
chines may escape man's "poor dis-
cipline" in a two hour mechanized
warfare in which all the cities of
the world will wipe out one an-
other.
* The picture which the author.
paints for the future is indeed a
gloomy one. Undoubtedly man's
discipline of the powerful machin-'
ery and engines he has invented
is a poor one, consisting only of a
determination to control them and'
to use them to his own advantage.
The purpose of all pacifist agita-
tion is to minimize the possibili-
ties that the machine escape the
control of man, and pursue him,

it is supplied in the quantities
needed.
It would be the subject of an in-
teresting survey, to determine just
exactly how much of the whisky

ing drama by treating exaggerated
characters in a melodramatic plot
through overstatement in dialogue.
It is easy to imagine immense dra-
ma in dialogue like this;

like a Frankenstein, to his own
destruction.
That man is not at present un-
der the domination of the machine
is matter still open to some dis-,
cussion. Stuart Chase traces the
history of the development of ma-
chinery and comes to the conclu-
sion that man is still the master'
and likely to remain so. We must
accept the result of the lengthy re-
search and study which the authorI
has given to this question, at least
as far as the general conclusion
goes. But it seems to us that there
are a great number of examples
in modern life which tend to prove!

one. Machine operators in factor-

We get our food from automats,
