' 'Co-operation and Organization" Subject of Address by Albert Stump, of Indianapolis. Is HIGHER PLANE OF LIVING AIM Independence of Individual Present in Relationship of Nations, Declares the Speaker. "Co-ooeration and Orzanisation" was the subject of an exceptionally interesting and pleasbg address do livered by Albert Stump, Indianap olis attorney, at the regular meeting of the Seymour Rotary club today. Referring to the inter-independence of mankind, he spoke of , the ad vancement of civilization and the higher plane of living brought about through the progress of nations and individuals. Mr. Stump is a demo cratio candidate for United States senator, in the i primary election to be held May 4. He waa introduced by John A. Shields, chairman of the March program committee. , Much of the , progress that has been recorded, said Mr. Stump, can be traced directly to co-operation and ortranization. Both 'are essen tial factors in the daily life of the . '' w ... y . people. He pointed, out that JtfUJtt.- dividual may regard his work as un important and of little consequence, when in reality it forms the key stone of the arch so far as the life of the individual is Concerned. Co operation and .organization are found in the most common things of ife, he said. Citing the shoe indus try in illustration, he pointed out that the materials that enter into the manufacture of footwear come rom practically every continent in the world. People are dependent upon each other, he t said, and this dependence makes for 'the unity: of mankind. - The same' dependence found in in dividual life holds , an " important place in the relationship of nations, Mr. Stump said. He pointed - out that in 1910. Norman Angell, an English economic writer, stated that tho principal countries were so de pendent npon others that they would suffer in case : of an industrial breakdown of any of ' the principal powers, it was predicted .that if England should bring,, about uidus- trial collapse in Germany England would materially suffer. Mr. Stump pointed out that as a result of the World-war industrial ' , efficiency -ia Germany was demoralized and that today r the effect has been felt throughout (England to such an ex tent that an attempt is being made: there to provide funds for the re-1 Btoration of Germany's industries. - i Mr. Stump declared that progress and organization have given to the average person today more luxuries and better advantages than members of the most wealthy class of two centuries ago could enjoy. He stated that machinery now does the work that was performed by slaves formerly, -with the result that the individual has more leisure ime. Shorter working hours, be said, gave opportunity for full appreciation of the beauties of life. People who were required to work long hours, he said, were unable to appreciate good literature, because they diiynot have the time to learn to read easily rapidly. They were unable to appreciate flowers because they did not have time to (Continued oa page 8, column 3) TO MERGE QUARRIES , Fornv' $43,CC3,CC3 Bedford Lime-. . stone Corporation. . .
