Sarah Bernhardt Grows
Paris, Oct. 19.-(By the Associat
ed Press).-Day by day, in every
~vvay, Sarah Bernhardt seems to grow
younger and younger. Nexr, Monday
she will be 77 years old, yet she is
von the threshold of a busy winter of
varied and exacting work. Listening
?o her plans for the season, one
would think the great actress had
just attained her prime and was fu
riously struggling in a tide of activi
ties with the hope of being swept on
to fame and a career of greatness.
In the first place, the incompar
able French artiste expects to appear
in four plays during the coming sea
son, creating new roles, and reviving
others. Somehow she is going to find
time to continue her sculpturing and
Last summer, during-her stay at
Belle Isle, she finished a bust of her
son, and now has turned her fingers
to a fresh piece of clay. Her new
.jiovel will be published next month.
-Already her pen is busy on the manu
script for another volume. It is to be
.a book of advice to actors. Above all
*else, Mme. Bernhardt will counsel
.them "io be sincere."
"I oujht to go to America," she
.said tho other day. "America de
mands me, and I certainly shall go
there. I should have gone this year,
but I must reckon with my age.
Perhaps I will not have time to do all
I wish to do."
Mada::ie Bernhardt will make her
first appearance of the season upon
the stage of her own theatre in Paris
in a revival of Maurice Rostand's
?"?Glory." Later, with Lucien Guitry,
she will give the first performance
of a play written for them by Lu
cien Guitry's son, Sacha Guitry.
; "It is a long and fine dialogue,"
Mme,. Bernhardt said, in describing
the Guitry work.
Her third role of the season will
'be "The Sphinx" in the play of that
name by Maurice Rostand, and after
that she will appear in "The Man,"
written by her granddaughter, Mme.
Verneuil, wife of the playwright.
The Greatest Economist.
Henry Ford does not love Wall
Street, nor Wall Street Henry Ford;
yet from the Wall Street Journal
comes perhaps the highest praise the
manufacturer has received.
That publication credits Ford with
having expounded "the greatest
economic truth in the world today
a truth that seems generally to have
escaped observation," and with be
ing literally "the most practical eco
nomist in the world."
The "truth" referred to is the idea
set forth by Ford in a recent inter
view, that the greatest benefit a
wealthy man can confer on his fel
low-men is to expand enterprise and
increase opportunities for employ
ment. "Work itself," says the Jour
nal, "is the greatest educational
force in the world, and the opportu
nity to work-opportunity to labor
and secure the results of labor
bave made the United States the pos
sessor of most of the value that is
.in the world today."
Very likely. And yet, somehow, a
thoughtful person may not be quite
satisfied with this veiw. A doubt aris
es as to whether life isn't really more
than jobs-more than automobiles
even, and more than bank accounts.
What if the worker, by the na
ture of his work, is made a mere hu
man automaton? And what if, hav
ing done his work and earned his !
pay, he doesn't know what to do with
his money or his leisure time? May- '
be economics is not concerned with
that problem, but surely philanthro- J
Henry Ford, though, to do him ,
credit, has never posed as a philan- .
thropist. Whatever his shortcomings, .
Ford seems to be honest. Where- (
fore he might assent to a judgment ,
that pronounced his whole career, (
with all its incidental benefits to so- j
ciety, essentially selfish. The Ford ]
iamily works for the Ford family, ,
and the more it perfects manufactur- j
ing processes and the better it pays ]
its standardized labor the more mon- i
ey it accumulates.
And that, too, may be all right. It
may be that highly efficient selfish- i
ness is what the world needs, at this 1
stage of development.-Greenville i

Why Organizations Fail.
A Texas farmer, writing Farm a
Ranch, says: "I have always be
among the first in my community
join farmer co-operative assoc
tions. I believe in cooperation as t
only means of giving the consume
survice which they demand and th
obtain adequate prices for the thin
produced. Cooperation should low
the cost of marketing, but it h
been my experience that it does n
always work out that way. Notwit
standing' past failures, I still fav
co-operative marketing, but I som
times fear that our apparent inabi
ty to conduct our business econom
cally will result in other failures ar
halt the cooperative movement mar
years. What can we fa.rmers do 1
make our marketing associations
Lack of personal incerest in tl
conduct of association affiairs, blin
faith in leaders who sometimes fin
the organization unprofitable t
themselves, if not to the rank an
file, and political steam-roller metl
ods at annual conventions, are som
of the reasons organized effoi
among farmers fail. These thing
lead to extravagance in number an
size of salaries and create top
heavy overhead. Sometimes, ambi
tion on the part of officials leads ti
attempts to develop the organisa
tion's activities beyond the scop<
originally intended, and failure re
suits because support and strengt]
for proper maintenance is lacking.
Farmers can only make their co
operative associations a success bj
adopting an approved plan of opera
tion, and then by exhibiting a loya'
and active interest in association af
fairs. Select members of the board oi
directors on a basis of honesty anc
ability and insure individual and col
lective interests by proper safe
guards in the constitution. If officials
prove to be incompetent or extrava
gant, replace them with others. Co
operative marketing associations can
not succeed if membei's refuse to
abide by their contracts, or if they
withdraw from the association if
affairs are not conducted properly. If
each member considered himself a
part of the organization and exer
cised his right to know the source of
income and what it was used for; if
he attended the annual meeting, or
delegated someone to represent him;
if he actually co-operated with his
brother members in making the or
ganization a success, there would be
Competent and honest officials

One great trouble, in times past,
bas been the indifference of farmer i
methods as to how their organization
was being conducted. They have let
its affairs get into the hands of a few
who have profited through misman
agement, and when it finally "blew
