A great deal has been said ot the
"poor man's library," the magazines
and newspapers. The new era which
has marked a change in the variety
of material contained in the editorial
and fiction sections has been lauded,
but little has been said of the store
house of information which lies in
the back pages of the periodicals.
At mention of the word, 'advertis
ing," a few years ago, you would pic
ture a riot of black-face type Impu
dently spreading the misinformation
that "Pazzaza electric globes are the
greatest Invention of the age. Great
slaughter of prices tomorrow. Come
one, come all."
Today the producers advertise their
product by an accurate account of the
manufacture of the article and of
where and how the materials are pro
duced, with well-drawn illustrations
of the process of manufacture. Thus,
in a concise, interesting way, jou
learn how electric bulbs are made.
So it is with automobiles. Hour,
gloves, spices, cured meats, encyclo
pedias and a thousand other products.
Writers of advertisements study the
advertised product thoroughly before
attempting to write a line of copy re-
garding it. Strict legislation aganst
fraudulent advertising assures the
reader that the information tontiined
in the advertising pages is correct.
The poor man's library of the pres
ent day does not stop at Page 1 of
the advertising section it only begins
er capitalists seem to be unable to
learn the lesson.
Both labor and capital are so blind
to each other's interests that they are
injuring their own interests. Both
must learn the lesson of co-operation,
but both are traveling on dangerous
ground In the impending controversy.
I Margaret Elwang Circle to Meet.
The "Margaret Elwang Circle of the
King's Daughters will meet at 2:30
o'clock Thursday afternoon at the
home of Mrs. T. A. Ficklin.
A STKUGGLE IX ECONOMICS
Is the test of the Adamson Eight
Hour Law but the first chapter in a
series of struggles between labor and
capital? Many have hailed the new
law as the initial victory of me labor
forces in their great war on capital,
and many have seen in the rccejt or
ganization of the financial interests of
the country the first signs of fear
among the interests.
The National Founders' Associatioa,
in which are represented 600 of the
leading manufacturing corporations
of the United States, passed resolu
tions at its recent meeting in New
York to use its "entire influence and
power to back up the railroads in their
fight upon the eight-hour law."
Even before the passage of this reso
lution the National Industrial Con
ference Board had been formed from
the representatives at this meeting.
This new organization, which repre
sents 15,000 captains of industry and
$8,000,000,000 ot capital and employs
6,000,000 men, includes the General
Electric Company, of which Morgan is
a director. This means that the great
est financial and industrial interests
of the country are behind the rail
roads in their fight upon the new fed
eral legislation and that every influ-
ence will be brought to bear to keep '
this law, as well as others impending,
from being enforced.
On the other hand, we find the forc
es of labor growing stronger and be
coming better organized than ever be
fore. They are tasting ot victory, and
they are beginning to realize their
rower over modern economic organi
zation. They have their leaders, and,
what is more, they are coming to have
a sense of their own ability and in
telligence in guiding their own af
fairs. They are content wherever
they consider themselves to be treat
ed fairly, as is shown in the Ford
plant, but In other places, understand
ing that their condition is but the re
sult of unorganized, inefficient, and
untrained intelligence, they have al
Co-operation, then, seems to be the
present aim of both labor and capital,
but it is co-operation within each or
ganization, not with each other. Ford
and many others have shown the bene
fit ot co-operating with and taking
better care of their employes, yet oth-
