Why did all our patriotic corpora
tions wait for Henry Ford, whose
palroitism has always been under a
cloud, to start serious price culling?
Ford's announcement that his prod
uct will be reduced to pre-war levels
has beeu given considerable public
it.y. Hut in setting the new pace he
made, several seditious statements
which the newspapers in genenil
have thought too bail to print.
"Wages." says this black s'neep
of American business, "will not be
reduced." And he explains the
causes of high prices as follows:
"There is a lull in general husi
ness we are touched by the waiting
period that always precedes re
action people in every walk of life
are waiting for prices to become
lower. They realize that it. is an
unwholesome, unnatural, unright
eous condition produced by the war.
In every line of activity there is
growing idleness because the de
mand is not there.
"Raw materials are being stored
manufactured goods are being stor
ed because the volume of consnmo
tion is growing less through the self
denial of the people, many of whom
could not afford to pay the high
prices', others who would not pay
the high prices because they felt the
injustice of the situation.
"Manufacturing plants are being
i'shut down all over the country. La-
bor is being thrown out of employ
ment, yet the cost of living has seen
very little reduction.
'•Our country is rich beyond meas
ure in natural resources, rich in all
material things that go to make a
great nation, and yet its progress is
being held virtually at a. standstill
because of the greed of the profit
Confession of eight players of the
Chicago White Sox baseball team
that they deliberately threw the
world's series championship to the
Cincinnati Reds in 1919 has given
the sporting editors a disagreeable
theme to write about.
Friends of the great American
sport are hopeful that the exposure
will result in making it a cleaner
game. The present revelations,
however, are not a complete surprise
to those who have watched profes
sional baseball in a general way, al
though the extent of the fixing may
occasion surprise.
Somehow many Americans have
a notion that if a thing can only be
run for profit it will be run in good
shape. The dollar is supposed }c.be
the best of all- possible motives. And
our great American sport has been
on the profit basis. Club owners do
a lot of expensive talking, but a'l
their figuring is for the dollar. What
is more natural then that some of
the players also should acquire the
profit motive to the exclusion of oth
er motives?
fraud, murder all have their place
iu it. And the only reason Ameri
can business has not become impos
sible on this basis is that the rank
and file have not acquired the prof
it motive. Or as the financial writ
ers would put it, they are not
"intelligent" as the captains of in
Organized baseball has flourished
and kept as clean a6 it has only be
cause its players in general have
higher standards than Its owners.
The magnates may try to ride th.
guilty players as a means of clean
ing a lot of dirty family linen.
Refusal of France and Belgium
to make public a secret treaty
known to exist is another indication
of how little intention there Is
among the powers of the world to
observe what the common pfeople
think ought to be the principles of
the league of nations. According to
news reports, England has agreed
that the action of these other two
countries is acceptable to herself
and proper.
England probably knows the con
tents of thip treaty, while the rest of
the members of the so-called league
of nations remain ignorant of it.
The league thus becomes more and
more a superficial form to fool the
common people while national greed
continues to play Its terrible game
as hitherto.
Along the same line, It is interest
ing to note the grounds upon which
a Pennsylvania congressman declar
es he is going to bring Impeachment
proceedings against Wilson. Dur
ing the last session congress passed
the Jones shipping act containing
clauses which make scraps of paper
of about 28 commercial treaties
with foreign nations.
We run our large business in this Harding thus sets for himself the
way anything to get the profits impossible task of being the friend
bribing, (ixiitig, lying propaganda,
Wilson signed this bill and it be
came a law, although the other par
ties to these treaties had been ap
proached in no way whatever to find
out if they would consent to a
change of terms. We who accused
Germany of considering its treaty
with Belgium as a scrap of paper,
deliberately and without good mo
tive, except insofar as trade grab
bins is a good motive, have made
scraps of 28.
Wilson refuses to hurry the treaty
scrapping as fast as some large In
terests think he should.
In reading ot how many great in
dustrial concerns, such as the wool
en trust, have closed their plants
and consequently have laid off thou
sands of employes, some of us nat
urally wonder how even men of the
Wall street type can do these things.
How can men deliberately starve
thousands of people and hold tlieir
country up to high prices when they
I could make almost, as much by sel

Hut when we have expressed such
surprise, we have been too fair to
the Wall street personality. It is
worse than this. The Akron (Ohio)
Unionist, for instance, is authority
for the statement that while the big'
rubber plans there have laid off
nearly 60.000 men in the past two
months, they are at the same time

Henry Ford is setting up a model
farm for the inspection of visitors
at the Michigan State fair. He will
endeavor to show how practically
all of the work of a farm can be done
by machinery. His Fordson tract
ors will supply the power.
The "farm" will be set up on a
section of the fair grounds, where
crops grown during the summer will
be ready for harvesting. Model I
farm buildings, all lighted and heat
ed by electricity developed by Ford
son power, will he erected as a part
of the complete farm equipment.
Fordson tractors will show farm
ers visiting the fair how ground can
be prepared for planting with the
least amount, of human effort, time
and money. Planting equipment
will be shown in actual operation.
A field of wheat will be harvested
and threshed. The grain will be
hauled to a small mill on the farm
and turned into flour which in turn
meantime on another section of
the "'farm" tractors will be busy cul
tivating corn and others will be cut
ting and gathering the crop.
''We want to make our model
farm an educational exhibit to show
Just what can be done on a farm
with a tractor." said one of the Ford
tractor experts at the Ford Plant in
Dearborn where the big exhibit is
being prepared. "It is our idea to
carry to the farmer the idea that a
tractor is a mobile power unit which
can be moved about where it is need
ed and to offer a few suggestions
for the wide variety of uses to which
a tractor can be put. By using his
ingenuity, he can find scores of
other ways of using the power which
he has at hand in his tractor."
More than a dozen Fordson
tractors will be used in the exhihi.
The ease with which a tratcor can
adapted to nearly any purpose on
the farm is one of the big points
