In the first part of this paper the conditions for the existence of self-perpetuating electric moments in crystals are discussed. If these conditions are satisfied, the crystals must either show macroscopic electric moments or they will necessarily possess a definite type of a secondary structure. Certain complications may come in, however, if one is dealing with metals. Finally, the analogous magnetic case is qualitatively discussed.
