PERKINS URGES 1W COOPERATIVE SPIRIT! financier Warns Nation It Must Abandon Old Ideas of Huthlcss Competition) ANTAGONISM OUTLAWED 'Ofon of the Future Visuali- zed in Interesting Address\ nt Columbia University. It Is to tho country's educational men holding public ofllco and men who are at tho head of Industry, that Georse W. Perkins looks for a solu- tion of the vnrlouB phases of unrest which disturb the country and It la his judgment that unless a new spirit ol cooperation takes the placo of tho old customs of competition tho United States cannot go forward to her destiny. Sir. Perkins delivered nn address on tho \4&m of the Future\ before the Insti- tute of Arts and Sciences at Columbia University last night. He esplalnod that tho progress of science and mechanics an.d not tho disturbance of war was re- sponsible for tho many questions which people are asking nnd) that a world In which delay (ind distance had baen practically annihilated could nover go back to old conditions. \What we need In this country,\ de- clared Sir. Perkins, \Is the closest possi- ble cooperation between tho men of out educatlonal'tnsiltutlons, the men of our Industrial Institutions and men of public affairs. These threo groat branches of our country's actlvltle have been wfdely apart In recent years; they have had very little Intercourse with one nnother and In place of cooperation there has often been sharp antagonism between them. \The man of tho future In each of these three classes must give more \thought to our country's welfare, to the interests of our peopl as a whole, for modern'meth-od- s of transportation and Intercommuni- cation have drawn us all so closely to- gether that what affects one person or one community almost Immediately af- fects all others. In short, wo must (earn to get together, or wo will go down to- gether. The man of tho future must learn how to cooperate In most of the activities of llfo rather than continue under the old method of competition. Whether we like It or not, modern In- ventions have not only made coopera- tion possible but necessary. Dither Dlesilng or Cnrse. j \It Is hero to stay and It can bo made either a great blesslnff or a great curse. In industrial affairs It has been In operation with Increasing momentum for twenty-fiv- e years; In other words, over Mnco electricity liberated our minds from our bodies and permitted then: to cooperate Instantly here, thcro and everywhere. It has brought much that Is good and much that Is bad. To the man whom the Almighty has blessed ulth more than average ability coopera- tion has given vst power In tho con- duct of his business. ' \Ir. a great many cases this power has been used to promote selfish alms, ulth the result that our people have found much fault with the results ac- complished. Tho man of the future, must realize this; he must understand that the very fact that he Is plven.such tremendous power through the new ma- -' chlnery that science and Invention have given him makes It necessary for him td handle It not for himself alone but for the welfare or the community as a whole. Our statesman and politicians must also recognlzo this and should so frame our laws as to permit cooperative effort, but provide that It be conducted under proper regulation and control. \Our vast educational system, on vhlch moro money has been spent than on our entire railroad system, has pro- foundly changed the mental status of tho man of the factory, the counting house and the mill. Not only this, but tho machinery that science and Inven- tion have placed In his hands has In itself raised the standard of his Intelli- gence. As a result ho Is asking many questions, among them being what Is a fair distribution of profits In a business, what is a living wage, what are proper housing conditions, how many hours are ii fair working day, what should bo the physical surroundings under which he, works? Questions of Vital Importance. \These questions vitally concern all of us and they are so closely Interwoven With other questions that affect the lives and welfare of other people that they cannot be settled solely on their own re- spective merits. It la of the utmost Im- portance, therefore, that a much closer relationship and better understanding exist between employer and employee, ond between both of them and the peo- ple of the ojjtslde world whom they fcerve. \Observation and experlenco have con- vinced me that the first requisite to a better understanding all around Is frank, rquare dealing and publicity of the most open and complete sort as to tho capitalization of a business, the volume of business dono, the profits earned and co forth. Open books will do more than anything else to open the way to a solu- tion of theso problems and a most tamest effffort should be made to bring euch a practice Into vogue. \What gave us the sweat shop, child labor, unsanitary working conditions, adulteration &c? Nothing In the world hut competition carried to Its logical conclusion; and If that was the result la the days when Intercommunication was meagre and' Incomplete, how much mot-- keen and destructive competition would bo nnd how much more far leaching Us 111 effects would be on the worker's fair share were we to literally follow those methods In these days when The Knife and Fork Brigade Dyspeptic Soup Eaters Can Change j Their Spoon for a Knife and Fork l and With Stuart's .Dyspep- sia Tablets the World , Smiles Again.

St. i: iinriiiiirrrmr POLICY OF DISHONOR SEENBYPOINDEXTER Soifator Attacks tho Presi- dent's Attitudo in Mex- ican Crisis. . .COAL 1'ItUCE 'HUMILIATES' republicans Told Leniency to Reds Has Only Added to Anarchy Menace. \Tho history of tho Administration's conduct of our Mexican rolatlons has been a scries of futllo compromises,\ declared United States Senator Miles Polndexter 'of, Washington speaking last night before the, Kings County Repub- lican committee. On tho strike of tho coal minors the Senator said It was humllatln? and dishonorable for a great government to be compelled by violence and under coercion to grant the demands of the Btrlklng miners. To cut off coal needed In conducting the vast enterprise of the Government was as direct and violent an attack as though the Whlto House was surrounded by armed men, the Bpeaker asserted. The leniency with which anarchy and bolshevlsm have been regarded by the Government, he asserted, had un- doubtedly Increased the menaco of dis- order In tho United States. The Senator was cheered when he sajd: \The peace treaty Is now quietly sleeping In the catacombs of tho Senate of .the United States, and I think It will remain there. The Republican party, by tho unltod front It has presented to re- sistance to the reservations formulated by Its Senate majority, ,hns snved the Independence and sovereignty of tho na- tion.\ There was a demonstration of ap- proval when tho Senator predicted that tho Administration's vacillating course In dealing with Industrial unrest would be one of tho paramount Issues of tho approaching campaign. \Now that the League of Nations has been disposed of and tho complicated obligations of European politics havo been laid aRlde,\ Senator Polndexter added, \tho Government should turn Its attention energetically to the solution of the problems of America. The old policy of the defence of Its citizens at homo and In foreign countries should bo reestablished. The President has said that the Initiative in tho conduct of our foreign affairs is vested in the Presi- dent. The fact of tho case Is that the President's powers In so far as our for- eign affairs are concerned are at nil \times Bubject to the raw enacted by Con gress, and whatever, Initiative ho may have Is subject to the control of tho law- making branch of the Government. \The flrst and essential thing which must bo brought about In the American Government Is the establishment of a definite principle that law and order must prevail in our domestic life and (hat the rights of our citizens must bo respected and observed by foreign na- tions.\ Beforo tho meeting Senator Polndex- ter was tho guest of Senator William M. Calder at a private dinner at the Montauk Club. Among the seventy-fiv- e guests were tho district leaders In Bnok- - lyn, the Republican officials chosen nt the recent election and Richard Law T out?
