Experts or Theorists-
The packing industry is intri
cate, complex—far more so than
the railroads or the telegraph.
Every day multiplying needs
of society increase its problems
and multiplying responsibilities J;
demand more of it.
Highly trained experts, spec

thinkers and creative men, de
vote their lives, their energies,
their activities, to solving the
problems of the packing industry !
and meeting its widening duties. g

hundred branch houses, a few
thousand refrigerator cars, and
a few million dollars of capi- |.
tal, but an organization of such £
men. It is the experience, in- |
telligence, initiative and activity ■
which operates this physical
Can this intelligence, this ex
perience, this initiative and cre
ative effort which handles this
business at a profit of only a
fraction of a cent per pound from
all sources, be fostered through
the intervention of political
theorists, however pure their
purposes? Or be replaced by
legislation ? Does Congress really

to admit women as fellows of the coun

it was decided that a “person” was
strictly of the masculine sex. The
change was made in the charter and
