(Special to The News) Philadelphia—American businessmen can get and keep public opinion on their side, and thereby avert further government control, if they will be more "human" in their business operations. This is the opinion of Harry E. Humphreys, Jr.. president of United States Rubber Company, who received an award from the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce yesterday as "The Pennsylvanian of the year." "While we have done so much for mankind by turning out products for better living," he said in hi; acceptance speech, "We have done relatively so little in the field of human relations. Th2 result ha: been that more people have decid ed—and voted—that they would be better off if the go%-ernment controlled more things. "This situation is tragic—not 10 znuch because business Is nhackled —hut because we as individuals are fooling oursel/es. "We think that because Uncle Sam has swapped his high hat for a fur-trimmed cap with a tassel and has rounded off his whiskers thai he has in his bag- all the gifts we shall ever need for bodily contentment and peace of mind. "We forget that the government has nothing of its own, that whatever it gives to some, it first must take from others. We forget that Kifts, no matter how they may glit ter. have no real value unless they reflect freedom's light." Be More Human Mr. Humphreys, a native of Philadelphia, specifically urged business men to be more "human" in their dealings with employes, customers, stockholders and their own communities. He suggested that they take rxn interest in the employe as an individual, talk to him about his interests and problems, place confidence in him, and help him to understand how the American business system works in terms of his own company's operations. He said it is also important that every company be a good "corporate citizen" of its own community. ."A community has the right to expect good corporate citizenship |>n the part of business." he said. "•It has a. right to expect us to operate profitably. Everybody in the community profits when business profits. It has a right to expect us Judge On The Mend U. S. SUPREME COURT Justice Wj]. liam O. Douglas smiles from his hospital bed in Yakima, Washington. He is recupsrating from injuries suffered when he was thrown from his horse in the rugged Deadwood Lake district of Washington, (international Sound-photo) to- pay our fair share of taxes, to help support worthy charities, to take an active part in civic life, to keep up the appearance of our plant, to eliminate all possible smoke, odor, and other nuisances, and to keep the community informed of our social and economic contributions." Referring to the stockholder, he said there are more than 22 million people in the United States who are "willing to risk total loss of investment for the hope of a reasonable gain and the satisfaction nf buying a small share in a greater America." These stockholders, he added, want to feel they are partners on a winning team, and management should make every effort to keep them well informed. He also urged that business firms do everything possible to make customers better friends of the American capitalistic system. This can be done, he said, "through good performance in the public interest and , through intelligent use of all the j channels of communication to dra- Imatizo that perforance." PEOPLE and MONEY We need both at Naugatuck Footwear. Together thay built our company. They work side by side, every day, in our plant.
