W" -' a - 4.1 'a-v, -k " 7" 37.. .-. aowe No on"'1' A gq*gWe for Good Work (Pre S Apru ISM of M4SH MesiAue.) X Indsstry good wages and good work are equally important. Good e1 k makes as good product. Good wages make a good market. A higb Atadard of wages means a high purchasing power, and it should be one of the business objects of employers to maintain a general high standard of wages in order to maintain a general market for their On the other hpnd, it should be the intelligent purpose of the labor wabms to' meet any depressed situation in business by iereasing pro 'dutivity, , and removing hampering union rules which interfere with productivity and profits. The first requisite for the payment of good wages is that the employers make enough money to be able to pay good wages. Wealth can not be distributed until it is created, and whatever interferes with the creation of wealth interferes with the distribution of wealth in wages as well as in profits. When union rules interfere with the creation of wealth they inter. jfere with the welfare of labor as much as they interfere with the wel fare of capital. As a matter of mathematical fact, they interfere with the welfare of labor a great deal more than they interfere with the welfare of capital, because about 90 per cent of the wealth created is distributed ii wages, and capital is well content with anything like 10 per cent of the wealth created. Wealth is production. There may be prospective wealth, putative wealth, potential wealth, in the soil, in the ore veins, in various lateni 11forms-but actual wealth is only that which has been produced into the things that men require. The more there is of production, therefore, the more there is of wealth. And .everything from human skill to labor-saving machinery which increases production increases wealth, and increases the welfare of the jentire human race. The greater comforts, luxuries, conveniences and advantages tha modern man possesses over the men of former ages are due directly to in. reased productivity, which puts many of these comforts and advantages within the reach of all. Still greater skill, still greater mechanical ingenuity and productive machinery will provide still greater comforts, conveniences and ad. vantages, and place them at the disposal of absolutely all. Whenever labor by restrictive rules, or capital by curtailing produe tion, interferes with the creation of wealth, it interferes with the ma terial development of the race and with the common possession of the ad. vantages of modern productivity as far as each restrictive act is operative. There are two fundamental facts to be recognized: First, that productivity is necessary for permanently high wages; and second, tha high wages are essential to general prosperity. The less the productivity, the less there is to be distributed im profits and wages. That is reasonably obvious. I And since the vast majority of the people of this or any other bountry are wage-earners, and general prosperity depends upon the ' of the mass, it is equally obvious that only liberal wages will general prosperity and the general purchasing power, which, ir zun, means the prosperity of every individual and of every individual ~usiness. Let us, therefore, pay good wages for good work and give good brork for good wages. For only by such co-operative effort can we create the fullest pro. tivity, the greatest purchasing power and the greatest prosperity. WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST. .

I noted that his skin Was Quite bronzed, that his eyes were big and brown and kindly, that he Possessed that feature by which the physiognomists out such store. a hawk no". that his physique was trimmer and more athletic than I had expected. Then I looked at his hands. The hands of the President are probably the most unusual element In his physical makeup. They are of a peculiar type that one me"s once in a blue moon. They are very long and very wide, but they are also very flat hands. There Is surprisingly little'thicknoes to them. The fingers, somewhat big fingers are of inordinate length. One does not associate physical strength with such & hand. It suggests two things-dexterity and genius. A commonplace man would never have such a hand. An inventor of complicated mechanical devices might. A teacher. thinker, dreamer, idealistg would be likely to. Mr. Harding, from his hands ins all~that a man with thick Palm and stubby fingers is not. Theodore Roosevelt, Assisant Secretary of the navy, says that hen he as campaigning in Kentucky last fall, a big service man "rode night herd" on him. This man assured him that he was voting for the party; that the service man was doing his political duty. "How old are you" asked the colonel. *.'Nineteen." replied the service man. Roosevelt said they were elbowing their way through a dense crowd and ofterved a squareshoul ored fellow doing likwhs. and tacking In the name general direction. "Gangway," called this man lusti'ly. "What ship." Roosevelt called back. "New York.," was the response.
