This is the age of workers; of men who are able to do their part in performing the world's work, earnestly, cdi- ciently, and with unbounded enthusiasm. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) ia an organization of 27,000 workers — a shirt sleeved organization — front the top to the bottom. In this Company aristocracy is unknown. Instead there exists the true type of industrial democracy. The department head and the employee work in full sympathy and understanding, shoulder to shoulder, for the common good. The office hoy of today is the chief clerk of tomorrow; the district manager of today ia the general manager of tomorrow. On the Board of Directors of this Company is one man who started as a common laborer and truck driver; another who began as a mechanic's helper; two who started as office boys, and another who began as timekeeper — in fact, every man on the Board began in a comparatively humble capacity and earned his place by hard work and sheer ability. There are thousands of men and boys in the ranks of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana)—-encouraged and enthused by the inspiration of the "open road to the top" — who are fitting themselves for places on the Board of Directors. It is this spirit of enthusiastic earnestness, in,the mind and heart of every employee of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), which enables this Company to render such superior service to the thirty million people of the Middle West. It is this superior service that has made the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) one of the great industrial organizations of the world. Standard Oil Company (if witt; no) 910 So.
