Credit and Social Security*
ELGIN GROSECLOSE
In that beautiful, but often tragic, body of legend that has come down
to us from the Greeks is the story of Sisiphus. Sisiphus had offended the gds
of high Olympus, and by way of punishment he was condemned to roll a
great stone up the slopes of Olympus. As soon as he neared the top of the
mountain, the stone slipped from his grasp and went thundering down into
the valley, so that he was compelled to begin his arduous task all ovdr again.
The story of Sisiphus comes to me in relation to the task we are con-
fronted today as a nation in the problem of achieving a greater measure of
social security for the people. No problem pressing for solution is so urgent
as that of social security. In a world that is rocked from pole to pole by
revolution, a world in which one sees on every horizon the flames of die-
content and rebellion, the need of securing our American society against
the dangers of disorderly eruption is apparent to every thinking person.
The ihterest of the legal profession in the question of social security
arises from the fact that the law represents a body of custom and tradi-
tion which has grown up from the experiences of many generations of-
forebears, from a process of selection and choice of that which has proven
sound, workable, and calculated to establish a great spread of justice in
human relations. The interest of the legal profession in the problem of
social security arises also from the fact that it is one group of men who are
charged with preserving this body of custom and -applying the principals and
rights which it has created to the needs of a changing world. The interest
of the legal profession also arises from'the fact that there seems to be a
growing conviction that social security depends upon a greater measure
