QUESTIONING THE SANCTITY OF TOIL
T-k RESIDENT BURTON of the University of Michigan im-
I presses upon his graduating class the sanctity of labor. He
asserts that the principle that every human being is of su
preme worth" is the foundation of democracy. Most men, he
says, can be judged by their attitude toward work, "the essence
of existence, the vital test to which civilization puts each per
son." ' Repetition has made such statements orthodox doctrine for
baccalaureate sermons. It would be heresy of the worst sort for
a college president to tell a group of young men going out into
the world that they ought to avoid labor and live by their wits.
But after all, are we not deceiving and handicapping our young
collegians unfairly by such talk about the sanctity of toil .'
The best ditch digger we ever knew, if headed west from
Chicago, would have made the dirt fly clear to the Rocky moun
tains if not stopped by a plainly marked line or by some impas
sable barrier. He knew nothing about the sanctity of toil. He
had no illusions. All he knew was how to dig. If "every hu
man being is of j-upreme worth," this man was as valuable as
the man who directed his efforts and limited them to the excava
tion for a foundation and cellar of a house. But in reality he
.vas not as valuable. Undirected, the fruits of his soil would
have been destruction.
Young men go to college to fit themselves not for toil, but to
direct toil into productive channels. Without such direction
probably nine-tenths of the labor in the. world would be wasted.
It has been estimated that without the labor saving machinery
row in existence, this globe could not support its population, no
mater how diligently every individual worked. Yet no college
president tells us that the machine which thus supplements and
extends the possibilities of the worker is sacred.
The fact is that there is nothing noble in labor itself. Quite
the reverse is true. If a man discarded pick and shovel and set
to digging a ditch with his hands, he would increase his labor, de
crease its product, and brand himself as an idiot. If, on the
other hand, he discarded pick and shovel and invented a ditch
digging machine which would reduce his physical effort and in
crease his results, we would do him honor, and give him reward.
It is not toil, but intelligence, which is sacred. The young
men instructed by Dr. Burton probably know this. If they do
not know it now, they will learn it quickly when they see the
comparative rewards of stolid labor and of intelligent mental
It is time the old platitudes were dropped from baccalaur
eate sermons and the college curriculum in general. If the world
is to improve and progress it must do so through the success of its
leaders. It is a waste of time and an unnecessary handicap to
tell young men who are in Jine to become such leaders of
thought and action that "every human being is of supreme
worth." They are not. Their comparative worth will be reveal
ed by the fruits of their toil, not by the toil itself. ;
