Sound Business and Sound Statesmanship
By WillIam H. Barr, P resident of The Inter-racial Council
HEN a business man commence.! to talk
about his di fficul ties in keel?ing the wheels
of ind uslry turn ing. t he~ IS o~ thing he
i ~ su~ to sa)'. He may have $Orne remark s
to make about the difficulty of figuring his
income lax or the problem o f foreign markets. or Iroul.>l" in gett ing raw mate rials.
but he is certai n to'make 50me commenllike
this. "I don't seem to be able 10 get the right
sort of help any more. It·s hard enough
to keep thc worke rs I' ve got, and still harder to get any new
hands that a re worTh Ihti r salt." It i ~ the 5ilme stOTY in
"\'try line o f busi ness. When you speak TO a manufacturer
"bout labor $llorlage he throws up his hands. When you
Talk 10 a farmer about it he almost sheds tears. The em]llo~'ers try to case mauc~ for their own busi~sse,. by
w.klll!: away one ot her's help. bUI of course that is a policy
which gets us now here. It sillll)ly rai5e$ wages all around,
boosts pr ices and makes for general unrest and discontenT.
HE fact il; we are lip against a "ery serious labor shortage in :\'orlh AmerIca. It h.u been u timaled that Ihe
market is four o r fi"e million s sho rt . d ue 10 lhe laci thai sinC<'
Ihe outbreak of the lI'af immigration dropt away below prewa r fit:Ures and has nOI el'en bet:Un to con~ back to normal.
This serious indust rial situation is one of the problems
which T he In ter-racial Coundl is au empl ing to w ive in a
const ru cti"e and farsighted manne r. It is logical That The
Inter-racial CoulI~il should lackle thi s matter because il
,Jeab with lhe fore ign·born and their life in a ntw country.
We believe that lhe liabor shortage would be eased by more
enlighlened policies in regard TO Ihe indi"idual foreign·bom
1I'0rker. One reason why the immiernn t is going hack in
~uch large numbers is that in a great many ClI!ieS the new
COI",f elid not get a square dea l in America. We have
.<tud ied that quut ion in consul taT ion with The various racial
l~ders here an d h ~ve ~onle TO a I)re ny correct conclusion as
to what constitules a square deal for the immigrant and how
we can go about il 10 make hint contented here 50 that he
....'iIl not be tempted to JIII ck his g rip a nd 113.11 away for Ihe
"Old Country."' carrying hi s savings wilh him.
ITHOIJT doubt one o f the principal reasor!.' why
intmigrnn t ~ ~re not coming in larg1'! numbe rs is that
we make iT IIl11tc<:e5sarily diflkult for them to get here. At
the preliCTlt rate of exchange, The head tax. passport vise
and Irn"c1ing expenses amount to the pr ice of a small fa rm
in some o{ the O ld World cou ntries. T hen, to thi s financial
burden we add tl~ encumbrance of a literacy test which bars
a man who m;ly be a STrong. industrious and willing worker;
bllt who is refused admi ssion to America merely because he
cannOT read. The Inter· racial Council is therefore attent pii ng 10 secu~ fair treatment of the fo~ign·bom who
are already here and rea.$On;lble ~hanges in the immigra tion
laws which will attract 1II0re 01 Ihe Ucsirable clement to
ou r shores. and safegua rd the indh'idual a lien until he is
employed and able to take ca re of himself.
HE Inte r·racial Council is one of Ihe most const ruct;"e
organiza lions in Ame rica·. It was organized ill }lar~h .
1919, by a group o f men and women wh o a rc 3C1:1IS10Illed
10 do big thillgs in an efficiel1! mann er. The...: lleOI)le
include the he:l.ds o f some of the larges t corJ;>Oralions il\ Ihe
world, both financial and indu strial illstilutlons t..., ing represen ted. In addi tion to these America ns, with Ihcir inili ati,"e and cxccmivc abilit)" th ere is a grou p of leader~ of
Ihe foreil.'1l· bom dements 11\ the United Sl a!e~ who know
what the immigrant think s and can tell us what he needs.
I nd i"iduals who ha,"e made II 5tudy o f Ihe immignnt problem for years. who ha'~ indeed made it their li f~ work, a re
also included in the Council ;lnd Ihe result is that for the
fi rst time in hislOfY the immigra tion problem is lleillg stud ied
scient ifically by th ree groups who are particubrly imerested
in finding lhe right $Dhnion; Ihe imn.irran t himself thm his
leaders, the employer o f labor who use. his IIen ·icc. and Ihe
e"pe rl who has :t. oieien lific and humaniTari.tn inte"",1 in the
XE o f Ihe most imporlant things TIle Inter,racial
Council has 10 do is 10 d ispel the pre jud i~e in the
minds of ntany "\ mericans against the foreign·born, TItis
is reflected in lhe contemptuous way in ...·hich they are referred to as "bu nkie5," or "wops" or "polacks," and in the
habitual altiluUc of supe riority which many of the nalil'ebo rn adopt before The immilj:rant , We a re trying 10 do away
with this prejudice by tellmR our people aga in and again
a nd in as ma ny ways as possible just what the foreign.bom
lI~aQS to America. how he has broucht his :lrts and culture.
how he has built our railroads. dllg our ditches and cultivated our fa rms ; how he hns suppo rT ed our Libcrl\' Loo ns,
fought our ha ttles and shed hIS blood in our dd~n se.
T this time when the words " foreigne r" and "Red"
are synonymous in the mind s of many olhcrwise intclligent ]J«Iple. The work of diSllelling prejudice is tre·
mendously important. II we are ever to be a faClor ill world

OR Cl<<lmp!e. The Inter-r.lcial Cou ncil is at pres<:nt helpillg 10 circulate information a oout America, its Constitution and its institutions in a series o f adve rti se!!>ents in
fONlign lnnguage papers. It is believed that whell the foreign.born knows what his cons\iIUlion.,1 right s arc, he will
be able to protect himself, and that when he realizes that
ollr COn5till1t ion guarantees a government by the people, he
will not be in a hurry to cast it aside for some new experiment in governmen t. T his material i ~ ci r(lIlated thru the

logieal \I'a~' in which to tcll them the truth about Ame rica
is thrll 11 press that they read regularly.
O IT i~ part 01 the policy of The Inter·radal Council to
rcs i5t 1\11 attcmpts to eliminate the foreign language
press. The ~me people who think of every fo reigner as a
"Ret!" also think o f every foreign language paper as a
Msedi tious sheet." Now as a matter o f fa ct only about one
percent of the foreign language: publications in America are
radical 3nd thi s is a small er pe rcwtage tha n is ' found
among our o wn press. On the otller hand the loyalty of

I ncidently such advertising opens a new and extremely

purposes. that o f keeping us in formed about the needs of the
Immigr:m t and of h,s contribution to America. and bringing to the immigra nt himself a betl cr untleutand ing of our
ideals ,, 00 tradit ions. The nlCmbership of the racial organ iutions in the Un ited St"tes runs into m"ny thous:mds

are other constructive ideas which we hope will be acted
upon by Congress. Th e most illlJ?:Ortant measure is the
proposed Federal Bureau of Assimilation, under which all
CoI'ernment dealings with the immig rant would be co-ordi!lated. At present !lOme of the bureaux arc working at
cross purpo!oCs. lind the proposed iloard of Assimilation
would avoid this difficulty besides providinr adequate protection {or the new-comer. It is al so proposed to direct
the immigrant to that p;:Irt o f the country where there is
demand for the work he is fined to do best, also to gil'e
him opportunities for education in our language and
customs. A copy of the Memorial and Resolutions will
be sent without charge 10 anyone who is inten:sted in
the details of this proj«t.
H E practical nature of this coo ference is indiC:l.ted
l>y the fact thai it was COI1l~ of serious thinkus
on immigration, such as leaders of the racial organizations,
employers of fon:ign born labor, both industri al and agricultural, and a group of men of affairs who arc of inle rnational imrrtance. All concurred in the thought thllt the
stability 0 American business and industries depends
largely upon ou r judicious handling of the immigra tion
HE fact that we will have more production and ~reater
prosperity if we all pull tOl:'ether, instead of wa st mg our
energy in racial prejudIces and autagonisms is important,
but fa r mo re important is the rnoti"e back of ou r effort.
By bringing the ,'arious races in America into sympathetic
contact with one anothe r we hope to makc all ICC and \'alue
the good qu alities of the othen. T he immigr:mt brings us
not only his strength, his industry and his thrift; bUI he
brings us many cultural gif~ that we have only to know
to appreciate. The Amcricaniution which wc endeavor
10 promote is not the sort which would cast into one mould
all the r.lCCS which have found a rtstinc place in this
country, Our conccption of Americani$lll means to retain
the fine qualities of each race gathe red here from every
part of the globe and devotc them to the service of our
country, in peace as in wa r, Rotarians will need no furthe r
explanation of Ihe broad prindples of mutual help, sympathy and brot herhood, which we a n: endeavori ng to promote amOllg the many diverse races tlta t constitute the

The Craze for Co-Operation
By Chula C. Sherlock
went to Minnesota to in vestiga te
co-operative organi zations in that
, I wen t with an open mind. The
pr('judice T had was fal'o rablc to
idea, if' could
madc to work. I
the reason . that
are most plenrefer to farmers' co-op• concerns. Surely I would find, in
things are com mon , all the pros
be mu stered on the s ubject. Business men had told me : "00 not be too enth usiastic.
The co-opera tive idea is finc as a theory; but in actual
practice it has the habit of blowing up with a loud bang
when yo u least expec t it. It isn't the fault of the idea;
but the fault of the shan:holders themselves. They
seldom. if el'er, gel the ri~ ht kind of managers. Inexperienced men in the buslIless they an: trying to conduct are usually placed in charge, sometimes a shareholder ; then the thing si nks to an inevitable death."
HIS is all too true. The bleacht bones of co-operali,'e en terpri$C$ arc strewn all over the mercantile
~nd 5. There is ha'rdly a fa rming o r small town community in the Middle \Vest t ha t does not have a local
skelelon or two: but I did not go to Minnesota particularly to hunt for corpses, I we nt to hunt for successes. I found that there arc at the rrese nt time more
than 180) co-operati ve ven tures of al kinds in Minne5Ota, the share holders of which 3re mostly fa rmers.
T here are over 500 co-ope ra tive live-stoc k shirPing associati ons alone, and more thall 75 per cen t 0 all Minnesota live stoc k sent to markct las t rear was handlcd
by these local concerns. The Hu tchInson association,
which ;5 Ihe largest in the Statc, handled $lOO,OCIO worth
of li\'e s tock last
. the Glencoe 3.Ssodation handles
worth of live stock every week
from $6,0CX) 10
the year
Litchfield association. which is
the pio neer
in the State , has SCO members
and it ship t
worth of Ih'e s toc k last year.
)IAN in elos.c touch with the si tuation says; ...... 5
a result of these co-operat;"e efforts the local stoc k
buyer. as :I spedcs. h:u become praetically extinc t. tn
a remarkably I~rge numbe r of ,"s\ances these farmer
organiza tions have hired thc loc al buyer as their manager and in the majority of instanccs the arrangement
has been sa tidactory. The s tory of one local is the
story of them all. T hcre is nothin~ roman tic or sensational about their business operatIons. T hey simpl y
return to the farmer the highest ponible price for his
produc t, a condition which, when honcstly administered,
is alwa)'$ satisfactory to the average producer," If one
will lake the trouble 10 ,trike an average betwee n the
usual amou nt of business done by thelle eoncerns, which
is around $SCO,OCX) annually-al least so far as I am able
to determine ill the many illsla ncc. where loc:al managers
were interviewed-and multiply it by the number o( associations in the States, a graphic idea of the \'ol un>e of business done in one line alone is obtained.
U T live stock shipping associations are no t the only

of legi timate business activi ty in which they ha\'e nOI
put the co-operative idea to work.
LENCOE, Minneso ta , is hailed fa r and wide as the
most successful cen ter of co-operative cn terprise.
I had the plc asu re of I'isiting Glcncoc last winter. I
fou nd that it is indeed a "glowing example" of what may
be ac complish t by farme rs organized to car ryon business transactions. I found th at cI'ery business enterprise in Glencoe direct ly affecting the f:mner in a buying
or selling way, with the excertion of one ba nk, the
lumber yard and a drug store, is owned and operated by
a farme r's co-operative assoc iation, T hey have a livcstock shipping association, a poultry and produce concern, a creamery. a Aour mill. a grain marketing association, a s torc, a bank, and while I do not know whether
they have a hardware and implcment store, I believe
Ihey have, as wc will presently sec.

they do. Dry goods is sold by the bolt, ami if o ne purchastr happens to haH more than he wants, it is distribUle(\ around among th e neighbor!, So it is wi th hats,

hundred and fifty-nine miles of
road in Michigan a nd Ontario. Receptions and ovations were in order along the entire r oute. It is believed that it has stimulated activity and good road

The Higher The F ewer
o ma tter how materialistic one may
be; no matter how much attacht to neoisms and a contempt for historic theology. the fact remains tbat
origina l lIi n is the most obvious thing in human experience. Humanity's tendency downward when left
to itse lf is an unanswerable problem to anyone who
believes tha t man evolved himself from a bewildered
ape. Charles the Hammer, who hurled back the
forces of Islam at Tours and M \'ed We!!otern Europe
to be t he crad le of t he greatest ch'ilitation the world
has known, was inspired to a s mashing victory not
by that vague pseudo-scientific cure-all, "economic
ncce&.8ity," but by a very real thing_the Cr'OIIs. For
Christendom is not nearly so great because of what
It ha.s accomplisht as for what It t r lell to be and 80
commonly tails to be-christllke. Because at that
Idea\. Christe ndom Is still In t he minority and brutality reig ns among uncounted hundreds at millions.
The hig he r the Ideal, the more lllflicult It III to make
lIIeli strive tor it. Man ha.s not evolved t ra m a n ape;
the ever pre5Cnt danger Is t hat he ma y devolve into
a ile.
of His own handiwork on Earth and thr uou t the
Heave ns Is proof enough of that. Hell Is tull ot pessimists ; laughter is a gift of God.

Citizenship Traini1lg
MERICANS admit they a re the most lawless of
any elvlIized people in the world. Per million
of population the Uni ted States has ten tim~ as
many murders as Switzerl and. The Swiss Republic
has a military training system for its citizens.
J udges, lawyers, prison wardens and other authorities agl ee that universa l t raining in the United Sta t~
would reduce crime at least fifty per cent. The
United S tates is going to adopt a tra ining system but
in characteristic American style it is goin&, to be the
finest and best training system in the world. Militar)'
t ralninll' will be only II part of the course. The basic
t r aining will be in understanding and re~pe<:tlng the
laws of the country together with a practical demonstration of the duties and obligations of citize nshi p.
For those that want them there will be courses in
agriculture, industrial chemistry, engineerillg, construction, etc., so that every lad shall have the opportun ity to get fundamental information at least, regardina the vocatio n to which he may be attracted.
The graduates of Universal Training will be better
citizens, better able to produce for the common
wealth, and better able to protect the commonwealth.

OTARY is op()Olled to Bolshevism. Rotary is j ust
aM mueh op p<»sed to ty ranny by the pr oletar iat
all It Is to tyranny by au autocrat. H believes In
co-o peration, not coercion. It inculcates a comradeship amana men which is based on the loving kind ness
of Christ; not on the mob hatred that crueifled Him.
Rotary believes that the ills of the wor ld eannot be
cured entinly by economie nforms; because Rotary
recoanizes t he IIpi r itual quality in men and na lizes
that their true equality may be on ly found thr u
it. There an a lways fadd ists who run after any
new thing, good or bad. These people would have us
believe that time can change the eter nal verities.
They do not seem to realize t hat two and two will
make four o nll thousand yean from now jusl &.II surely
as they did a thousand yean ago. The truth does not
chanae an d th e truth is that a man is entitl ed t o the
fru its of the labor of his hand or mind. The wor ld fell

agony and Bolahevism is i b vo mit.

should make a point to take them in each month a nd
not try t o aceumulate them and take them all in
semi-annually or anything of that sort. We wan t
steady arowth in Rotary. We want to &'Il t the new
members in. but not so rapidl y but that we may
assimilate them properly. Some clubs decide upon
a group of flrteen or twenty men who wi ll be taken
in dur ing R ser ies of months an d then they draw
lots each month to see wh ich three will come in that
month. Where it Is positively undeflltood tha t a ll the

The Rotarianism of
Upson Board
Al ex. F. Osb o rn-R o tari a n
A S alluring as the Aladdin-like
rl. magic of Fulton, H owe, Goodyear, Westinghouse and Edisonis this [a c t- s cory of two young
R otarians.
Almost si nce they started [ 0 vote,
th ese two young men worked. ate
and slep t " fibe r" of various kinds.
Seven years ago they saw th e vision
of a thoroughly dtpendahle wall-board f
So they dreamed, studied, planned , and
experimented, month after mo'nth, to
produce a more perfec t boa rd.
This mom h, the "Upson Boys" will
start the wheels of the most recent
addition, wh ich will give to th e
Upson Company th e largest and
most modem wall- board plant under one roof in the world.
But size of plant means nothing to
the Upsons. They care less fo r the
repmation of quantity producers
than th ey do fo r th e reputation of being
quali ty creators.
They succeeded and Upson Processed
Board was th e result.
T heir pride is in the dependability of the
Upson product with its record o f less than
one complaint to every 4,000,000 feet sold
and used .
Then-and only when the board had
been tested and found superior did they
detennine to begin the making of itand to market it under the belief (hat
merit would win.
We as R otarians believe that Mankind
seeks the good-the endu ring-and the
dependable; that painstaking effort, high
ideals and honorab le principl es in th e conduct of industry bring satisfaction to the
user and success to th e manufacturer.
With in two years a new factory had to
be erected to supply the demand for
"The most Dependable board made in
America" . Every year new bui ldi n gs
have [!rown up.
And I believe that the Upson Company
has won its place in th e sun-simpiy by
measuring fo ur.square to that threadbare
bm golden slogan: "He profits most who
serves best."
