ABSTRACT
The seventh annual meeting of the Eastern Sociological Conference was held in New Haven, Connecticut., April 18th and 19th, with over a hundred persons in attendance. The central topic of the Conference was Social Theory and the Social Order. The majority of the sessions centered around a discussion of Capitalism, Fascism, Socialism, and Communism as divergent social orders. Among others who read papers dealing with this general question were Theodore Abel, Joseph Folsom, Scott Nearing, H.A. Miller, Harry Ladler, and Roger Baldwin. Additional sections were devoted to social economics, religion and the social order, social work, the nature of sociology, and education in relation to the social order. At the annual banquet addresses were delivered by James W. Woodward, the retiring president, on "Some Implications from Sociology for the Social Order," and Harry Elmer Barnes, "History and the Problem of the Social Order."
