A little more love for tho friends of

FORD'S VIEW ON LABOR,
It ls a fact significant of the mime

forts to reconcile capital and labor
should be a motor car manufacturer.
That man Is Henry Ford of Detroit.
And the testimony which ho recently
gave lo the Federal ludtistri.il Com
mission, was easily the moat Impres
sing and convlcing that has been of
fered. A burst of applause r.jrept
through 'the aldirmanlc chamber in
thc old New York city hall when Mr.
Ford, testifying, said quietly: "We

In explaining tito purposes and tho
actual resulta .of the stupendous Ford
Profit-Sharing Plan Mr. Ford said.
"If employers ot labor have a gen
uine Interest Sn the linnjrovoment of
the condition of labor, no conditions
that are irksome or distasteful will
be laid upon tho men." This ls even
more to the point: "Wo cannot ex
pect a man to give Us hts best efforts
when, he ls'in dobt and has not enough
to keep his family on.4^
Naturally, some of the representa
tives of capital and large employers
present al the session-were curious
to know whether thia distribution In
one year ot shoot $10.000,000 of Ford
profits, "really paid or' not."
Mr. Ford Smiled and said: "I don't
know how you would figure that out;
however, there bas been an lacrease
of between 16 and 20 per cent ef
ficiency sine the Inauguration of tho
$5-a-day minimum wage, and the pro
fit-sharing plan.?' '
it ls Interesting to see how that

"Provincialism Is not morality,"
says Dr. Frank Crane, "many con
HCicnttouu people feel that whatever
is different in immoral.
"To many un honest villager and
farmer tho city is a sink of Iniquity.
The unconscious ground for thia con
viction ls simply that so ninny thing.;
aro done lu cities to which tho rtirni
dweller is not used.
"1 lind a very common expression
of opinion among those of any na

PHILADELPHIA, May L-Welding
l'i?ng. In an address before the Amer
ican Academy or Political and Social
Science, asserted today that, not
withstanding g?nerai misinformation
to tho contrary, there Is now and has
been available practically ever since
tho war begun, ample loading ton
nage for shipping their wares from
American markets to South. America.
Most of these vessels were under for
olgn registry, however, he said, and
radical changes would have to be
made in American laws before the
United Slates could take Its place
among thc leading nations of thc sea.
.Mr. King said in part:
"A wrong impression lias been
throughout the United States, that
we do not have sufficient communi
cation with all Ute various countries
throughout South America and Cen
tral America. To thone In the chip
ping trade, lt is hardly n ecos sar to
state that since tho war commenced
there has scarcely been a period
when there was not ample tonnage

"It ls. however, humiliating to
think thal tho United States, prob
ably the most advanced country in
tho world In thc manufacture and
value o fits, articles must depend
upon foreign tonnage to carry its
products throughout the world. When
the chango will come is difficult to
predict, but it is certain thal but lit
tle progress wil' bc made In building
up a merchant marine under the
Stars and Stripes until we get more
intelligent and broader legislation at
Washington than has been served to
us during recent years. Very many
plana have been suggested, numerous
bills have boen introduced in con
gress and debates have been long and
ardous, and without any, or at least
very little, result and benefit.
"The nearest approach to anything
hencucial was the act passed last Au
gust by congress, which for a brief
period permits the purchase of for
eign built vessels and their transfer
to the United States flag, and their
operations also for a limited period,
without many of the existing draw
backs ot our navigation laws. Under
this act, up to the present time. 13?
steamers have been transferred from
foreign to United States flag. Unfor
tunately Just aa congress closed' it
paaaed a bill generally known as the
"seaman's bill.' when contained nu
merous conditions that add to the al
ready too heavily hardened American
shipping. How thu difficulty is M
be overcome is a problem very dif
ficult to solve, but it ls certain to be
one that must come to" the front .very
largely In tho immediate futuro."

While it is true that State and local
automobile clubs and commercial
bodies promptly followed thc sugges

the American Automobile association,
that they make clear to tho depart
ment of thc interior the quito general
desire for the admission of motor
vehicles into Yellowstone Park, lt

But iSecretary Lane took a real In

his competent assistant, Stephen .T.

western country though the owner ot

promptly proceeded to Ute subject
and decided upon the pl ms necessary
to admit of the Introduction of tho
modern form of roads transportation.
In the official bulletin from Secre
tary Lane reference ls made to thc
necessity of new telephone lines,
cheeking stations, and Imposing reg

of park roads by motor cars aa well
as by horse-drawn vehicles. Thia
extract from the official communica
tion concisely slzsi, up the situation.
"Plans carefully worked out by of
