Not Disturbed by Radical Talk
Wellesloy Hills, Mass. SeDt. 2.
1922. With bo much talk about
Bolshevism and radicalism ono Is
led to believe that the world Is rap
Idly becoming socialistic. Certain
ly such thoughts are ovldont when
one reads about Russia, Mexico and
certain other countries. Roger W.
Babson, however, claims that this is
not true. His exact statement In
exclusive Interview this week upon
this subject Is as follews:
"Socialism, as a party moemont, is
-almost dead, so far as the States are
concerned. It has never been at
home here. It is exotic. It does
not fit the United States conditions
and it has no great hold upon the
workers of this country. The
Socialist leaders know this better
than we do. They are' ready now
to combine with other people
workers, farmers, anybody who will
go into the combine. Previously,
they have been unwilling to hob
nob with anybody except those who
were willing to take the party name
and party pledges. Moreover, there
Is a distinct tendency on the part of
organized labor to rid Itself of the
incubus of Socialism. The battle
has been fought out as far as the
American Federation of Labor is
concerned. It has been fought out
in the women's garment Industry.
It will be fought out wherever it Is
necessary and the conservative will
"There remains the farmer group
the farm bloc, as It is called.
This fall will probably show more
of the results of the revolt of tho
farmer states against the conserva
tism of the present administration.
This revolt was inevitable. Our
last election was a post war reac
tion and the tremendous Republi
can majorities had to come. Tho
not results of the farmer revolt,
however, probably will not Justify
the enthusiasm which it has called
forth. After senators and congress
men have been elected to represont
thefarmers, most of them will con
tinue to act about as senators and
congressmen have always acted, af
ter they get to be senators and con
gressmen. Tho farmers will be dis
appointed. They will turn away
from their radicalism to other

"Wo have reached the extreme of
both radicalism and conservatism.
We are headed for a middle-of-the-road
course. Tho days of tho ex
tremist In any direction are about
over. Now we must got busy and

"Nevertheless, we nre probably
going to have moro of somo things
that a good many of us do not like.
Wo are probably going to have more
of government interference in tho
railroads, Instead of less; and more
of government interference in the
mines, instead of less. Tho drift
seems to be in that direction. But
we are not drifting that way on ac
count of the theories of agitators.
We are drifting that way because
of the necessities of tho present con
ditions. President Harding will see
to It that tho railroads run and that
coal Is mined, not because he Is so
cialistic, but because the country
must have, trains and coal. That Is
all there is to it.
"That Is to say, I believo that the
lease of life tff the soap box orator
and all the rest of the frenzied ex-
horters of our day, may be, for the
present, cut short. What we do In
tho next few years, we are going to
do because we want to. We are go
ing to bo governed by conditions and
not by theories. The main ten
dency is toward a middle-of-the-road'
course. Most of the people
will be traveling in that way. Our
progress will bo along that line. We
are going to be confronted with the
stern necessity of producing tho ne
cessities of life at costs which will
attract the purchaser. That task
will keep us all pretty busy.
"If my diagnosis is correct," con
cluded Mr. Babson, "this means well
for Investors and others interested
In constructive enterprise. The cap
