W. R. P. JACKSON. Trustee Displaced Labor. By machinery one man can plane as many boards as could have been planed by sixty with hand planes. "Fifty-nine men that the world does not needT One man can shell as much com in an hour as a hundred and ten could have shelled half century ago. One hundred and nine men that the world does not wantT One man and two boys will turn out as many hanks o yarn as 12,000 men fifty years ago "Nearly twelve thousand men that the world has no use for!" That is the way Health-Culture puts the problem of the unemployed. But it is all wrong. The world does need those men; it does want them; it has use for them, lhe proof is in the fact that so many people want planed boards and can't get them, so many want shelled corn and can't get it. so many want hanks of yarn but must go with out Until every son and daughter of Eve has all he wants, labor-saving machinery will not explain the problem of the unemployed. The explanation must be sought for in conditions that prevent the men whom "the world does not need," whom "the world does not want' for whom "the world has no use' from exchanging labor with those who do need them, who want them who do have use for them.
