John Dewey
Expects To
See Violence
Cambridge. Mass., Sept. 4. ?
iUP>? Dr. John Dewey, gray
haired Columbia University pro
fessor and eminent philosopher,
tonight predicted "some kind of
violence" if America persisted in
its present "socially unscientific"
"I think there will be a swaying
back and forth." he told newsmen
prior to reading his paper on "Au
thority and Resistance to Social
Change" at Harvard's tercenten
ary conference of arts and sci

swing to "something like" Fasc
"There will be a tightening up,"
he said, "then a swing back. We'll
be in a bad way. with some kind
of violence in time. I think Demo
cratic institutions give the best
chance, but they don't go far
Some ideas of the Roosevelt ad
ministration, Dewey said, were
good, but "they are carried out by
old-fashioned means."
He believes the administration
in "some ways has gone ahead,
and in some, not." He favored a
third major political party.
Dewey was apologetically dis
posed toward the dictatorship of
Soviet Russia.
"As far as I know." he said.
"Sovet Russia has increased free
dom. They are suppressing some
kinds of freedom, but not science.
It was a very backward country
and progress has been difficult.
The philosopher stressed the
need of a scientific approach by
co-operttive intelligence to all
questions affecti ngthe state and
the people.
"Dictatorships today." he said,
"are running on a scientific ap
plication of unscientific ideas."
