Fact is, it is Christ imiu, u a Bible, expressed in ("iiidi ns" ! t '-in. I( we hm.'

Can you imagine a condition with all kinds of cripples "making good," all sorts of outcists making a good showiug gain. 114 in s If-respect and strength of character? This would simply mean the giving of oppor tunity to the unfortunates instead of crowding them away from it. We know that, with very few ex ceptions, comparatively all cripples and all those who have tasted crim inal life are willing to work, but we deny them opportunity and then, through one process or another, sup port them ourselves by our own! labors. The plan is debasing and I foolish. j Undoubtedly Ford, with all his j millions, would fail in making a man Oft of every convict in SinJ Sin;1, There are men who honestly believe that the world owes them a living. Such are the products of genera tions of breeding to such conviction. Injustice has been working a long time to produce such, and we have them. But we believe that oppor tunity would make men of a very large proportion of those convicts. The world owes every man op portunity. The world greets the released convict with denial of op portunity. One of the tremendous things in Ford's statement is that he has outcasts who are permitted to make good, regain self-respect in his shops. It is a glorious demon stration of opportunity, a splendid j object lesson in sound philanthropy, a greater success than even his profit-sharing scheme, In the presence of justice and honorable helpfulness how insigni ficant the millions pilled up for pure charity's sake by rich men who hardly let their right hand know what their left does, and who im agine that the mere giving is dis charge of obligation to society and satisfaction of duty to humanity. Justice and opportunity comprise all that man needs, and in right to these "all men are created equal." That's all. Our "industrial rela tions" are being established on foolish, fraudulent substitutes. Henry Ford is getting back to the sound principles. He'll make men by making opportunity for men. and Heaven be praised he'll likely show that it's highly profitable. Illinois State Journal. nr '1? (I IIU ';f.1lAHY U.' Tcfdeys - WAxmon ocroauu.
