138,000.000 discontented natives is the
greatest present problem and the one
which may cost what is left of civili
zation, declared Professor Tav id J. Starr,
of the University of Chicago, who came
to Columbus to arrange 'for his Liberia
exhibit at the Methodist Centenary cele
bration, June 20 to July 13. Liberia may
save the world from chaos, added the no
ted anthropologist, educator and political
authority of national reputation.
"Africa, and only Africa will be im
portant in the world's politics for the
next ten years," said Professor Starr.
"Africa may cost what is left of civili
zation in Europe, for Europe has neither
the men nor the money to maintain do
minion over Africa. Europe is sending
bnck to Africa tens of thousands of black
men who have been trained to face white
men under arms. These black men, who
have been denied arms in the past, can
manufacture their own weapons In the
"Liberia is the only hope of Africa. Li
beria may save the world from chaos. Li
beria is the greatest marvel of the nine
teenth century, and I mean to make the
Liberia 'and Congo Free State exhibit
so vivid at the Methodist Centenary cel
ebration that it will impress all who
visit the exposition. My exhibition of
curios will represent the history, - the
present condition and the resources of
Liberia, the first foreign mission field
of the Methodist church.
"Liberia represents the largest thing
the black man ever has accomplished.
Liberia is at present represented before
the peace commission with plans thAt
territory unjustly taken from it be re
stored. Liberia represents the only sx
piesslon of self-government in Africa an l

say this is the only hope of the Dark Con

held only by force of arms. That which
was German Africa will not be content
as a province or colony of any other
nation. Leading French and English

governments that, with any considerable
evidence of disorder, their African pos
seslsons cannot be held by the number
of men and amount of money they can
aford to furnish."
Dr. Starr is a world authority on the
conditions of Africa. He led an expedi
tion of investigation in the Congo Free
State In luo-1906. In 1912 he conducted
another expedition in Liberia, being
awarded with decorations in Belgium,
France and Italy, as well as receiving the
only civic order conferred on foreigners
by the state of Liberia. At present he is
concentrating his efforts on producing at
the Methodist Centenary celebration an
exhibit which not only will interest as
evidence of the work of missionaries in
that field, but which will educate the na
tion on the state of affairs In Africa.
"I have ben surprised continually by
the number of persons who get the real
message that carefully prepared exhibits
have for the world," said Dr. Starr. "It
is because I see the educational possi
bilities that I am postponing my ninth

"The widespread and rapidly growing
Interest In Pan American commerce
which has manifested itself so noticeably
s:nce the close of the war. the necessity

change of views on every phase of Pan
American trade and the great good
which was acompllshed by the first Pan
American Commercial conference, held
in February, 1911," said Director General
Barrett in commenting on the confer
ence, "is the re-ason why the governing

April 9, last, voted unanimously to have
called otgether the conference whlcn
meets Tuesday. There is much construc
tive work ahead to be done. The thread.
or practical Pan Americanism which
were broken by the war must be taken
up and tied again; and the trade ex
pansion between the United States and
the countries of Latin America must con
tinue. It is the purpose of this confer-
ence to fromjte that worthy object.'
Washington. May 30. One of the most
urgent industrial needs of the countrv
at the present time Is properly trained
foremen, acsrding to officials of the De
partment of TJabor, representing the f
S. Training service. These experts have
been making a nation-wide study of In
dustrial conditions and maintain that the
keen foreign competition this country is
soon to meet, demands more efficient In
dustrial management than obtained be
fore the war. Already ; England and
. ranee and others of the allies are strain
ing every nerve to re-establish them
selves. In the markets of the world, lu
the past American industry has been
handicapped by the fact that the rank and
file of its workers have not had oppor
tunity for adequate training in their re
spective tasks. The only V-ractlcal way
of lifting this burden on Industry, ao-
cording to 'e U. S. Training servnJU, Is
to establish training departments 1 'tn
majority of the manufacturing plant ot
the country.
The foremen are among those to wham
first consideration should be, given, it V
said. Inquiries -from leading manufac.
turers show that there is a distinct trend
in favor of relieving, foremen of many or
their secondary duties In order that th?y
may concentrate their attention on their
principal task, which is production.
"Breaking ln" new workers has been on j
of the many jobs of the average fore
man. Acording to the newer standards
this should be delegated to a trainlns
department, or in the absence of such a
feature, to some especially qualified fel
low worker.
Because 'of the general demand for a
better .understanding of foremanshlp. a
staff of widely experienced production
men employed by the U. S. Training ser
vice is engaged in preparing a book on
the subject. The result of its combined
Efforts promises to be a valuable treatise
cn the duties of the foreman. It is In
tended for the instruction of young men
who wish to prepare themselves to be
foremen, as wel las for men already ex
perienced In this line of work.
