BECAUSE WORK IS HONORED
4 "When I was asked in Paris the reason for my country's
success, I replied: Because work is honored, and the prin
ciple of my country is work." i
The above is a sentence from a speech delivered twenty
five years ago, Nov. 11, 1905, by General Horace Porter, for
mer Ambassador to France, who was the guest at that time
of the Union League Club, New York.
Yes, work is honored in the United States
. And to respect honorable toil is of the very spirit of our
country and its institutions; was so in the beginning, and
has been so ever since. The very foundations of our Republic
were laid by a company of weavers and spinners and common
laborers, who came to the New World to worship God as they
wished, and to put behind them the injustices of caste and
class. : . V
f Work is honored, and we so frame our laws as. to give
work to all, to the last possible person capable of working
To give work to Our own people at living wages, as pre
ferred in our care and regard above foreign laborers com
peting at less than living wages. I
That is the spirit of good citizenship, of a patriotic sel
- For we can neither lift our own people to higher levels
nor help other peoples to rise higher without building on such
i solid foundations I
t And so work ought to be honored. It is good for us and
fofr all the rest of the world.
; The producer who would succeed must grow high qual
ity" products, and he must also grade for market sales. The
quality basis is rapidly becoming the selling basis; and it
is the just basis.
Buyers are demanding more and more products that are
graded up' to standard and consumers are also demanding
the same qualities from the dealers.
And it is only fair that products be paid for according
to their quality and market prices. Mixing grades means
prices below those for-first quality goods. Generally the
producer is the loser.
The jrrower who produces up to quality products should
and will in the future obtain the better prices whether sojd to
the dealer or the consumer. And more products will be pur
chased when the consumer is assured of the quality of his
Quality and graded products will help greatly to solve
the marketing problem.

GOOD SHOWS BEST INVESTMENT

i For a time partial nakedness and revolting language were

slightest reaction is noticeable and appreciated by the class
of people who stabilize the theatre and movie by patronizing
