DEPRESSION imiS
Page 2
C> ?/hat is your opinion of the
depression and v/hat from your
view point are the causes of
unemployment?
From 1921 to 1928 we had a
false prosperity. Machines and
over-production are the'main
causes for unemployment.
JOHN GBAEM-I - BISHOP OLDHAM
Bishop' Bldham, bishop of
the Albany Episcopal diocese,
believes that this depression is
caused by the Woi'ld War^- It is
an unnatural depression that cannot be overcome except by having
good will and confidence toward
each other*
C), How long will the depression
last?
A. It will last a few years perhaps^ but we will come out on
top in the end.
C:IRL SUMDLER-RAILROAD W O R O R
Oarl Sundler talked with
a man who works on the Nev; York
Central Railroads He said that
the high officials run the railroad wrong, becuase thej^ v;ait
until :they get a v/hole train

WILLIAM miAll^VmmLOYkD MAN
Vfilliam Nolan interviewed
an unemployed man who said that

Communists are 'to blame also^»
The Eord plant is an example of
that'.
BILLY 'FRESDriAN-UN3]\^IPL0YED m N
An unemployed man whom Billy
Ereedman talked to said that the
supply of goods is greater than
the demand. The cause for this
depression is mainly due to the
machines, over-production, and
the World W
LEO M i m a N - SENATOR BYROT
State Senator Byrne said
that the enoumous amount of
credit built up in the world is
the cause of the depression.
Another cause is the World V/ar
and the amount of money wasted
in the war*
GORDON VroiDELL - HNEL1PL0YED
IvIiiN
An unemployed man whom
Gordon Y/endell interviev/ed said
that he had a large family and
that he could find hardly any
work. He also said that his
family got three dollars a v;eek
from the city.
JOHN WINNIE - DR. RODGERS
Di'. Rodgers, director of
the Mendelsohn Club, says that
this depression is caused by
machinery^ over-production,
stock crashes, and Europe's depression.
GIRLS' PLAN WINS
The boys and girls in the
class held a competition for the
best plan for curing unemploj^ment. The girls' plan won and is
printed here^
We should have a nation wide
business
i'o^ "the benefit of
the unemployed men so that all
men could have a chance to work.
If the factories run down, the
owners should build them up out
of tlietr own personal money* To
avoid over-production we should
plan at the beginning of each
season how m:^ch goods v/e should
produce". We should have a reduction in Irariff. The owner should
know where he is going to se^l
his goods, and how much he will
sell', before he makes it. Distribute work equally throughout
the year to avoid unemployment.
