f HE future of the Amor-
lean Federation of La-
bor?" The question was put to
Frank Morrison secretary
of the great labor organ-
ization. "If the American
Federation is the ultimate
form in which lahor shall
unite to press its chug
against capitalthat is to
prcserva itself and prose
cute its advances ia the struggle of
human development then I mink I
can answw that question In a few
words" bo said. "We think it ia; wo
think it is an ideal form of organiza
tion just as e as Americans think
that our mobile form of government
ia the United States is the best form
of government. No mau who is otVr
than a fool however thinks tbo gov
eminent of the Unit 4 States is a
perfect government. Most of as real

ment the best on earth is not only

bility to new measures and methods
the provision at hand by which a
change even the most radical change
may be effected with the only essen-
tial condition that the majority of the
w pie want the change. There's the
rub. But no sensible man would re-
move that very heavy and lagans
weight that forever clogs the way of
progress the necessity of leavening
the whole lump.
"Leaders fret because of the slow
march to a goal that seems so bright

reserved for modern eyes. Only by
union can headway be made by pov
erty-stricken individuals against the
Iritrenehments and fortifications of cap

ganize unions unite these unions to-
gether into other unions and these
unions into still other unions one in-

the others; drill discipline educate

rights and tha rights as well as
the power of capital to know
what to atik for and what not to

know when to substitute the word 'de-
mand' for 'request' and finally and
most vitally to know how to enforce
that demand. That is the American
Federation of Labor. It is the great
est labor organization of the world.
"They will tell you that' the Inter-
est of labor and capital are identical
that they should live together In
peace and harmony; the welfare of
one is the welfare of the other and
all that. Of course it is. To the un-
biased this is as fundamental as tha
truth of crganization. But the trou-
ble is that capital like labor is pri-
marily ignorant especially i3 capital
ignorant of this fact. It can't be
taught without demonstration. It
lacks the point of view and no lesson

When my wife made the sugges
tion that we should give a Thanksgiv-
ing dinner to our Wends in. the neigh
borhood it almost put me to the ropes.
You know I'm not much on the so
cial gag and to have to sit up ana
make good-natured faces at a lot of
strangers gives me Intermittent pains
in the neck.
"Why should we give them a din-
ner?" I asked my wife. "Aren't most
of them getting good wages and why
should we kill the fatted calf for a
lot or home made prodigals?"
"John don't be so selfish!" was my
wife's get-back. "There's a long win-
ter ahead of us and when we give
bur dinner to seven people that means

determined to find out what merit
there was in a vegetarian diet.
