ing a remedy with planned economy. The government
wishes to plan its budget on a corporation basis. The rail-
roads are going on a long-time revision program which
will mean a new transportation system during the next
decade.
  These problems, created by a new frontier, need the
clear thinking of the engineer. He is beginning to play a
more important part in the business activities which grow
out of these studies in economics. It is to the advantage
of the men in public life to seek out the engineers who
are capable and qualified to serve as aids in planning this
new course.
  The governor concluded his informal talk with the
statement that the machine has a language all of its own
and it is the engineer who understands this language. With
the engineer in control of the machine it is possible to in-
vest in them to produce and expand our economic system.
Only by a thorough study of these problems on a small
scale-such as is possible in the state-can we hope to gain
any real benefit from a national reorganization of the eco-
nomic system.
  The conference concluded with a few heated arguments
pertaining to government interference in private business
and the refinancing of bankrupt utilities and corporations.
Our tax system and foreign trade policy were also dis-
cussed.
