THE TURNING OF THE TIDES
The text of this volume has been divided into four parts. The first three describe a movement-how it started, what became its objectives, and to what extent those objectives were reached . These three parts are entitled : Currents, Tides, and-The Flood. The fourth part tells of the rising waters of a more recent stream, whose mounting effect gives the title to the book . Parts I, III and IV are by John Howland Snow . Part II is by the Hon . Paul W . Shafer of Michigan, Member of Congress from 1937 until his death in 1954 . The original text was delivered in the House of Representatives on March 21, 1952. Approximately two years were required for the preparation and publication.
PART I - CURRENTS - The Early Movement
On the 12th of September 1905 a group of young men met together in lower Manhattan, New York . Conditions in America were not ideal . These young men had an ideal. Consciously or not, it had been borrowed from the social structures of the Old World . The meeting took place in a loft above Peck's Restaurant, at 140 Fulton Street. Among the group were some who in later years were to become widely known for views which at that time were the catalyst bringing them together . On that day nearly sixty years ago was organized the Intercollegiate Socialist Society.
