PRESIDENT ELIOT TO LECTURE

On "Collectivist's Remedy," in New Lecture Hall at 4.30.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

President Eliot will deliver the ninth of the series of lectures given this year on "The Social Problem and its Remedies," in New Lecture Hall, this afternoon at 4.30 o'clock. His subject will be "The Collectivist's Remedy."

President Eliot has recently written a book entitled "The Conflict between Individualism and Collectivism in a Democracy," in which he has set forth some of his views on the subject. "Collectivism values highly social rights, objects to an individual initiative which does mischief when left free, holds that the interest of the many should override the interests of the individual when two interests conflict." In short, what President Eliot means by Collectivism, is more the thoughtful social organization restricting the individual to the common good, including his own.

The public are cordially invited to attend the lecture.
