The Rt. Hon. Lord Eustace Percy
Tonight Lord Eustace Percy discusses the first of two alternative remedies for the political and economic deadlock of today. The social ideals of the nineteenth century have been discredited by recent experience: can we make a fresh start? Modern society is weak in initiative. The organizations built up during the era of the pursuit of wealth are rigid in structure. Limited liability companies, trade unions, and political parties are all instances of over-organization threatening mental petrifaction. Present-day polities consist of continual attempts to patch up temporary compromises between rigidly organized interests. The League of Nations is an example of the same sort of effort at compromise in international affairs. Is this the way to solve present problems? Next week Lord Eustace Percy discusses the possibility of scrapping the whole system of present-day politics.

The Very Rev. W. R. INGE , K.C.V.O., D.D.,
Dean of St. Paul's
DEAN INGE'S talk in this series was originally arranged for October 15, but the stress of the election period made it necessary to postpone it. Dean Inge is a modern representative of the Church, and a philosopher whose views on the world in general are of widespread interest. His three previous talks-in the ' Points of View ' series two years ago, in the ' Science and Religion ' series last December, and his intro-duct ion last month to the current ' Modern Dilemma ' series—have all shown him to be a brilliant broadcaster. He is well known to the general public as a controversial journalist of decided and individual opinions and an excellent preacher ; he was Professor of Divinity at Cam-bridge from 1907-11, and is an authority on mysticism. His best-known books, ' England ' and ' Lay Thoughts of a Dean,' were published in 1926.
