In August of 1939 a Technocracy Organization was started in Elk Point and surrounding district. Approximately twenty-five members were enrolled. Technocracy Inc. said it was now in a position to provide persons sincerely interested in an orderly approach to the "New America" --- with the many advantages offered by its wide spread organization; also action was necessary on the part of everyone who was interested in making this world a better place to live in, instead of just existing.
It seems this organization did not grow since nothing more is known of it in Elk Point but it is reported by one of its former members that activities were curtailed when World War II started.
