"Obsolete Men '
THE magazine "Fortune" in its December number devel
opa the subject of the permanent; displacement of men
in industry through the introduction of machinery. The
subject is not at all new, and has had recent critical study
by a group of scientists the fruit of whose labor has been
made public under the subject of "Technocracy". From the
time of the riots in Lancashire over the introduction of pow
er looms to the present there have been intermittent per
iods of revolt against the machine which was regarded as
the foe to employment. Until recent years economists con
vinced the general public that the machine was a blessing
and not a curse ; but the late increase in unemployment has
given the machine fresh disfavor until by some it is re
garded as the "bete noir" of modern life.
According to "Fortune" "the rapid acceleration of pro
duction of machine energy has already rendered a part of
the human race obsolete and a further part obsolescent". It
further states that if on the first of next month production
hould be resumed at 1929 figures "there still would remain
an unemployed population variously estimated at four to six
So the question arises : Are these men obsolete? Will
there be no place for them in the economic scheme? While
there be a rich and prosperous nation with millions enjoying
the fruits of machine labor and at the same time millions
outside the circle who are doomed to permanent poverty and
There are those social students who look upon the fu
ture with dread, who see the social order growing progres
sively worse until civilization will collapse in one grand
crash, or else subside steadily into the morass the same as
it has been doing for three yeara.
It is true that there have been times in recent months
when conditions made even the stout-hearted quail, and
fears for the very security of government and the social or
der arose. The dislocations were so extreme, the remedial
processes so ineffective, the disintegration so progressive,
that one came to wonder if even the foundations would hold.
In such a frame of mind one takes the most gloomy view of
the future; and his mind quickly accept the prediction that
even if recovery' comes the machine will work fresh ills for
immankiri. Fortunately that mood appears now to be pass
ing. The indications are that the masonry and timbers of our
political and economic order will stand the strain. With this
atmosphere of pessimism lifting perhaps we can examine
more dispassionately the claims of those who like the writer
in "Fortune" see only the millions of "obsolete men" in the
)-ars stretching ahead.
Granted that the machine has solved the problem of
production, what remains is the problem of distribution of
the goods produced. For it is still inconceivable there the
wants of humanity have reached the point of satiety. There
may be saturation points for particular items like bread and
automobiles, but there are countless other items which peo
ple would buy if they had the means to purchase. Our chief
breakdown came, not through "overproduction" but through
overspeculation and breakdown in the credit structure, lo
cally and internationally. The country was very largely ab
sorbing all that it produced in the prosperous years.
The problem of the future then resolves itself largely
into one of the allocation of the rewards of industry. In
stead of piling up the profits of factories in a few hand3,
there should be the scattering into more hands. Particular
ly should there be less of savings and investment by the
wealthy classes and more of consumption of consumers
goods by the masses. We must recognize that the processes of
wealth creation are no longer just individual, but to a
very great degree social. Instead of clinging to the econ
omy which permits the individual to retain the lion's share
of the socially created wealth, society must insist on wider
distribution of the benefits of the machine age both to la
bor and to consumers. As "Fortune" recognizes, even the
obsolete men are needed as consumers in order to keep fac
tories operating and farms producing.
The machine has put many out of work; on the other
hand it has created vast markets which call for the em
ployment of millions of workers. Consider the home for ex
ample. In the matter of laundry the primitive woman took
garments to the creek and beat them clean with stones in
the running water. She made her own soap. The tub and
the washboard saved the trip to the stream, and gave em
ployment to hundreds in the tub and washboard factories,
and back of them in the woods and in the metal mines and
mills. Later the washing machine came in, doing the same
work which was formerly crudely done in the running
stream, or laboriously at the washboard; but providing far
more employment in the factories and at the sources of raw
material used in the manufacture. Various soaps and bleach
es, made in factories, are also in demand for the home laun
dry. This is merely one illustration of how markets are con
stantly expanding, calling for new armies of laborers, and
making valuable contributions to the comfort of human life
at the present time. Here are some of the newer inventions
which have employed more labor than they have driven
out of jobs : motion pictures, radio, automobiles, bed springs,
furnaces. There remain great areas only partially developed
where human wants are still unsatisfied: travel, reading,
housing, air conditioning. These will call for fresh employ
ment and not reduced employment v
We have had the power machine for well over a hun
dred years. Instead of judging its vice or virtue by the pres
ent distressful situation we should look back over the cen
tury and note its effects. Not only has it lifted the burden
from the back of slaving millions, shortening their workday,
lightening the loads, but it has brought comforts and con
veniences never dreamed of in the past The lowly today
are in better condition physically than the rich of two cen
turies ago.
The population of Europe in the year 1800 was only
180,000,000. In 1914 the population of the continent was 460,
000,000. In just a little over a century the population more
than doubled. Now if "Fortune" is right in its implications
Europe should turn back the clock of time and give "ob
solete men" more jobs through hand labor in fields, hand
power at the oars of ships, hand power digging ditches and

(Continuing from yesterday:)

cedure; for it has been only through the machine age that
urope has had its expansion of population. The same thing
has been true in America. If we abolished our machinery
our people would starve and the land would revert to thinly
populated, scantily fed and supported districts in the more
fertile portions of the continent.
This does not deny the reality of technological unem
ployment. It has existed and does exist; and calls for en
lightened treatment. But our major problem is not one of
employment but of distribution of the products of employ
ment. The solution is not the smashing of the machine, but
greater social control of machine production.
We take this means of passing the word to old man Talmadge
that the Cherry sisters are planning a comeback. In tho long ago
these girls toured the network east of the Missouri, and in city
and Tillage, sometimes to accompaniment of cabbages and eggs, sang
their famous ditty: "Cherries ripe and cherries red; Cherry sisters
still ahead." We are sure the "sago of Salem" washed tho Ink off
his fingers on the old roller towel and put on a stiff-bosom shirt
properly to greet the Cherry sisters when they came to his town.

I may be misinformed and there

that this was due to the great

to prevent whose coming I
do not know that the Hudson's
Bay company officers had the
right or the power. The state
ments of the country these mis
sionaries sent to their friends
circulated through the United
States in the pupllc papers was
me remote cause, ana tne en
couragement held out in Linn's
bill of 640 acres of land to a
man, 320 to a woman, and 160
to all under IS, and the silence
of the British government, were
more than accessories to the In
troduction of these very people,
and certainly not I or any offi
cer of the Hudson's Bay com
pany whose obligation it was,
whatever might be their feelings,
to do their duty, mind their busi
ness and take care of the Hud
son's Bay company affairs under
their charge and leave those of
government to the proper au
thorities whose duty it was to at
tend to them and give the prop-
fir autlority for the purpose. Fol
owlng these principles, I assisted
the immigration of 1843, 1844,
IS 45, w! the loan of boats to
transport their families am prop
erty from The Dalles to the Wil
lamette and assisted the immi
grants of 184S with means to
sow in 1844, so as to be able to
assist the immigration expected
in the fall. Ia doing this I was
fulfilling the duties of human
ity, which calls on us to assist
our fellow creatures la distress,
as several of tho immigrants
were very til and required to he
transported to Vancouver as soon
as possible for the benefits of
medical assistanco, and though
some died there, certainly more
would If I had not afforded them
prompt assistance and while
acting as I did I was only ful
filling the duties of humanity.
Still I was also pursuing the
conduct most conducive to the In
terest of tho Hudson's Bay com
pany's affairs under my charge.
and while I did only what the
necessity of the case required.
but as it was done in a proper
manner it was appreciated as
it I had not lent boats to trans
port them as goon as possible to
the Willamette, if the Columbia
froze before they got to the Wil
lamette (and I hare known the
Columbia to freeze In the be
ginning of December), they
would have been on our hands at
Vancouver and we would hare
to feed them, as of course they
could not bo allowed to starve,
and, besides tho expense, it
would cause ns a great deal of
trouble and inconvenience. Mis
understandings would arise be
tween them and us which might
lead to great evils. I assisted tho
immigrants of 184S with means
to put a crop in tho ground in
the spring of 1844 and urged
them to exert themselves to raise
wheat so aa to be able to assist
the Immigrants expected that
fall to guard against a famine in
the country in 184S and as peo

to starve when provisions are in
their reach, and If we had not
assisted them, Vancouver would
have been destroyed. The world

Wogaa; aad Wogaa had mentioned
the name of de Bernig la a tone
that in itself had been informing
to Pierre. He had gone quietly
back, aad had extinguished the
light, so that ho should not bo seen.
Then ho had crept op to the en
trance, and had stood there listen
ing to the conversation of those
two. It had disclosed to him tho
treachery ia the minds of those
whom Monsieur de Bornis had now
Joined, and Captain Leach was in
it. The Intention was to let him
guide thera to the plate fleet, and
then pay him his share of the plan
dor ia cold steel. Wogaa had dis
closed this to allay Haili well's
grumbling at. tho fifth share which
under the articles do Be mis claimed
for himself. Halliwell had accounted
the claim preposterous 'and 1

such terms. Wogan had laughed at
him for being such a fool as to be

Halliwell, however, was not so
easily to be reassured. Do Bernis
had always been known for
tricky, slippery deviL who had
way of defeating brute force by
artifice. He called to mind more
than one trick that de Bernis had
played on the Spaniards at Panama,
and but for which Morgan might
never have had the town. He called
to mind that it was de Bernis' wit
had found a way to deal with the
herd of wild JbuDs which the Span
iards had goaded into charging the
buccaneers on the savannah. Halli
well had been there. He talked of
what he had seen; and he knew the
opinion in which de Bernis was
held. It was not merely for his
foppish mannerisms that they
called him the Topgallant In
tight place de Bernis knew how to
supply just the little more that
made all the difference to their sail
ing powers. Did Wogan and Leach
suppose that de Bernis would not
bo fully aware of the possibility
ox just what they proposed?
"Sore now he may be aware of it
But it's tho risk he has to take.
How could ho be helping himself!
"I don't know." said HaUiweO.
"If I did, I should bo as spry as de
Bernis himself. YeH not persuade

"Why shouldn't he bo trusting us
to keep faith?" Wogaa had coun
