Business Today Is Conducted on a Higher
Plane Than Ever Before By E. H. GARY, U. S. Steel Corporation. During tlio last decade the world’s structure of civilization has boon threatened, assaulted aud dam aged, even to its foundations. At times faith in a merciful and allwise Providence has been the only per fect assurance of safety. We are emerging from under the clouds of doubt and fear into the sunlight of hope and confidence, and with feelings of gratitude we may calmly survey our somewhat battered institutions in order to determine what, if anything, can be done to repair and restore them and make them firmer and stronger than ever before. Our country is doing and will continue to do its part, and every citizen has a personal responsibility and must share in the work of reconstruction and readjustment. Managers of large business corporations not many years ago, perhaps not more than a score, ignored moral obligations and adhered to the rule of might, crushing competition ruthlessly and disregarding welfare of their employees. And what is true of these employers was also true of their employees generally, whose attitude towards their employers and fellow employees was, in a large measure, controlled by ideas that were entirely selfish and in many eases arbitrary, unreasonable and cruel. I he-i> conditions also resulted in great hardship to the general pur chasing and consuming public, for, in the long run, costs of production, transportation and delivery were necessarily made larger and, as they always must he, were carried on to the ones whose necessities compelled purchase and use. 1 resident Hoosevelt had many disciples and with assistance from them he created a strong public opinion in favor of honest business man agement. 1 his sentiment, however brought about, has had much to do with the change in the minds of the people generally as to the desirability and value of closely associating ethics with business. Hut there was another convincing reason for the change. While the motives are not equally worthy with others, they are very practical and influential with many who would not otherwise be con verted. Ethical management brings additional profits to business. Sooner or later it pays in dollars and cents. Any man or concern that firmly establishes a reputation for honesty and fair dealing which is not questioned has a business asset of great pecuniary value and profit. Business throughout the United States today is conducted on a higher plane than ever before. Is It All Doomed to Destruction—This Thing That Is Primitive America? By JENS JENSEN, Friends of Our Native Landscape. Y atcrday I met a colony of friends—friends not aeeu for many years. These friends were the white mo<easin flower, Fypripedium candidum. Where I met them I do not dare tell. But here they stood, perhaps the last remnant of their kind in that part of Illinois, where they once were plentiful. And soon this little colony will also be doomed to its fate. They seemed unaware of the approaching danger, and how was it jKissible in such charming company of phlox, shooting stars, ragweed, violets, blue-eyed grass, star flowers, Indian brush and many others— such a garden of brilliant colors illuminated in the bright May sunshine! I was wondering why all this should be -this gradual destruction of this great wealth of color and bcaulv. I was wondering about the loss to com ing generations of this wonderful color expression that eventually mu.-t hare its great and noble influence upon our arts. Fortunes are given to science, to buildings, zoological gardens and arboretums, all worthy, but is there no one who w ill save the little colony— save what is left of this exquisite earjiet that once covered the prairies of Illinois evcrvwhere? Is it all doomed to destruction—this thing that is primitive America, pure and unadulterat<“d ? The Greatest Obstacle to the Proper Development of Technical Training By SAMUEL IN'SULL, Chicago Industrial Leader. The greatest obstacle to the proper development of technical train ing of the future is the lack of close co-operation between the authorities of the great technical educational institutions of this country and the men who have charge of the great industries for whom the graduates of these institutions have finally got to go to work. Tn these days of specialized business, I think it is pathetic to see a young person, who has to make his or her career, taking a purely academ ic education and expecting to go out into the world and compete with those who have specialized in their education. No greater service could bo performed than to direct the minds of these young persona in some specialized channel. You educators are molding the raw material. We have the plant to help you produce the finished product. Moth of us want to help the young man and woman along. You can be of great help to us. On the other hand, we men leading the great industries of this country can be of great help to you, and between us we can be of infinite help. Tendency of the Juvenile to Imitate His Elders Who Commit Crime By BESSIE LOCKE, National Kindergarten Association. District Attorney Banton of New York has issued figures which he said showed “the tendency of the juvenile to imitate his elders" who commit crimes. The figures were based on the number of arraignments in children’s courts in New \ork county. It seems strange that we as a nation are not yet sufficiently logical to see the economy and wisdom of preventing crime by “letting no man grow up a criminal”—attacking the problem at its source. The kinder garten cultivates right habits of thought and action early in life. The most effective mean9 of securing more kindergartens is through the enactment of laws providing for their establishment upon petition of parents. Such a law has been in force in California since 1913. Seven other states have enacted similar laws: Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Maine, Pennsylvania, Kansas and Wisconsin. Louisiana and Georgia are endeav oring to secure this legislation. Next winter similar attempt*, will be made in Alabama, Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio, Wyoming and Missouri. AUTOMATIC BRAKE AND IGNITION CONTROL TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS The Illustration Shows the Flexibility o1 Contact and Bow-Shaped Cushion ing Protection Afforded Driver and Object Hit. A new accident preventive for auto mobile*. which protect* car, driver, pe destrian, and the other fellow's car as well, la now being manufactured af ter two years of experiments with the original patents. It Is an automatic brake and Ignition control, and Its pur pose U the minimizing of traffic acci dental the prevention of accidents while cars are parked, and the reduc tion of Injury to car* or to pedestrians when accidents occur at high speeds. The vast majority of automotive acci dents, however, occur at speeds below 15 miles an hour. Little short of a miracle can avert disastrous results In accidents when the automihles are traveling at high speeds, so that the developers of this device have devoted their attention to the production of an attachment which will prevent, and, where Impossible to prevent, min imize, the results of collisions and other accidents Ht lower rate* of speed, notably In traffic In cities, In which the majority of automotive ac cidents occur. Sam* Plac* as Bumper. The new device Is carried in the same place as a bumper, but Is not • bumper. It Is a simple mechanism consisting of flexible contact bars or cables fastened by goosenecks to the front and to the rear of the car, being equally applicable to passenger cars , or to motortrucks. These contact bars, yielding to a pressure of only 15 pounds, make contacts with electrical ly-wired contact points, In turn con nected with a brake and Ignition con | trol contained In a small cylinder which rides freely with the brake rod so as not to interfere with the foot or hand broking of the car under ordi nary conditions. The slight pressure on the contact burs makes connection In a fraction of a second, setting the brakes, cutting off the Ignition and thereby adding compression, to the braking force Hnd blowing the horn. - - ■ --— --— ■ ■ 11 ■■■ I FIND BEST OILS ARE ECONOMICAL Manufacturers for Years Have Called Attention to Impor tance of Lubrication. OWNERS DEPEND ON DEALERS Inferior Article Decomposes Easily and Forms Large Quantities of Sediment and Cartoon Residue —Wear Is Result. Automobile manufacturers for years have been Impressing on motorists the vast Importance of correct lubrication for the maintenance of the Internal combustion engine. Their stand haa been taken from an economical stand point and In order to Insure the long life of the motor. A recent investigation In the oil market showed that a large percent age of automobile owners do not specify a particular brand when pur chasing a lubricating oil, but depend entirely on the Judgment and prefer ence of the dealer. This fuel mukes possible the harmful practice of sub stitution of an Inferior grade at the price of a qualify oil. Educational Campaign. Keeling that there are definite steps which can be taken to eliminate this fact, the producers have Inaugurated an educational advertising campaign means of which the Importance of correct lubrication Is taken up step by step In a language which any lay man can thoroughly understand. Imbrication has become recognized as such an Important factor that en gineers have spent yeurs of Intensive research to produce a lubricant which will maintain its body under the ex treme heat generated In the motor, which varies from 150 to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, and to function properly under every possible condition. Inferior Oil Wasteful. It haa been found that an inferior lubricating oil very easily decomposes and forma large quantities of sedi ment and carbon residue which hai no lubricating value and Is therefore wuste material. This sediment and carbon residue crowd out the good oil from the benrlngs and rapidly Moving part* of the machine. Krlc You Auto Know That the carburetor struiner should be cleaned and drained regularly in order that no dirt .an pass into this delicate mechanism, which Is, in reality, the ‘'lungs" of the automobile. Trouble with the carburetor is generally due to the presence of some tiny bit of dirt which lias passed the strainer and which, like a morsel of food swallowed “the wrong way,” Interferes with the breathing. Even the smallest particle of foreign matter In the needle valve or the Intake valve of the vaporizer will cause the engine to splutter and spit and It Is seldom that this trouble can be eradicated until the dirt or dust has been removed. Even the straining of gasoline through wire gauze or a piece of chamois does not do away with the danger from fouling the car burtor, for a considerable amount of sediment always accu mulates in the gasoline tank, and tilts will be carried forward to the carburetor. For thla rea son, the strainer Itself should be drained off regularly and then thoroughly cleansed, in order to Insure the proper function of the “lungs of the car."

If the majority of the motorists realized that such conditions can be very largely over come by using a quality oil at a high er Initial cost, a great deal of trouble with most automobiles would be ellm Inated.
