Herbert Hoover, bend of the Ainericau Foreign Belief,whose work abroad' bits .won liim the praise of Ibo civilized world,' was tendered n humplet in New | York by 1200 members of the Amerionu Institute of Mining: and Metallurgical Engineers] who cheered to the echo when; the touBtmuBtor, \V. L. Saun-1 ders, KUggesled Unit Mr. Hoov? er was titled to ??bond the ship: of state." In large part Mr. , Hoover's speech consisted of a denunciation of Socialism und Bolshevism as practiced in Eu? rope. Mr Hoover said in part on t bis subject: "Two convictions are doitii naul in my mind. The tirst! comes from contact with stu pefidouu social ferment anil rev? olution in which Europe is at? tempting to find a solution for all its social ills by practical ex? periments in socialism. My conviction is that this whole, philosophy is bankrupting it self in the extraordinary lower-, ing of productivity of industrial commodities to a point thai, ; until (he recent realization of thin bankruptcy, was below the necessity for continued exis luncuof their millions of people "My seilend conviction is a greater appreciation of the en? ormous distance we of Am riea have grown away from Europe in the century and a half of our national existence, in our out? look mi lite, our relations tow? ards oui neighbors, and our so. ' dial and political ideals." "The whole of the various sorts of socialism," Mr. Hoover said, "tiro based on one primary conception. That is that the productivity of the human bo illg Cllll be maintained under the impulse of altruism, ami the selection of the particular hu? man for his most productive : performance cau b?: iuadu by some superimposed bureau cracy. My conclusion is that socialism, as u philosophy of human application, bas al? ready bankrupted itself: it has proved itself, with rivers of blood and suffering to be an economic and spirited fallacy."
