a more astound

than any of these.:
It Is the onrush of our business life.
Our economic progress plunges ahead
at a rate unheard of In the history of
the nations of the world and every
Industrial and financial leader is dally
brought, face to face with new. and
perplexing problems requiring the
highest courage and Intelligence for
their solution. .
Ninety billions a year, they tell us,
this country is now producing in new
wealth. The rate of increase is even
more 'staggering than the amount. It
Is difficult to say where It may lead
us in even ten or fifteen year.
We are moving exceptionally fast.
Our economic and industrial structure
is placing before us problems ot
greater and greater magnitude.- Few
men can see far ahead. Few are in
complete control, for this is chang
ing world, as even the most inexperi
enced business man will readily tes

selves rapidly to economic change
and of cooperating are far from per

ot five, ten or fifteen years from now
presents! What an adventure it will
be! What responsibilities it will lay
upon the broadest shoulders that may
be found! This is the challenge to
leadership as I see it. In the hands of
the young men must rest the respon
sibility for this leadership. ' 1
Boys Who Reached the Pinnacle
Business Is full of the romance of
1 vouneaters whose chief characteristic)
Lwas working hard and keeping at it
There was a green farmer boy wno ue
clded he would rather stand behind
a counter than follow a plow. H
seemed so obviously lacking in sale
ability that for a. time no merchant
would hire him. He failed In Tils first
position, and In his second hi salary
waa reduced. ' He even agreed that he
wag a misfit but be stuck. Out ot
his first five stores, I believe, "three
failed. But he persisted and worked
hard. And that boy, Frank W. Wool
worth, hecame the greatest retail
merchant in the world With a Store
in every city ot eight thousand or more
population In this country. .
There was another lad who clerked
in a erocery store sixteen hours a day
and studied mathematics in his odd
moments. He became Interested in
the doings of the Bteel plant whose era-
ninveea traded at this store. He be
gan to study steel and sought a posl
tion in the plant. He carried a sur
vnvnr'a chain and drove stakes. At
nieht he studied mathematics and en
gineering. . He did not despair. He
could not be diverted. He kept the
nressure on for seven years. And that
iw Charles- Schwab, mastered the
iron Industry and became one ot the
country's great industrial leaders.
There was a lad who sold papers on
train. When he grew up, several
million men and a score of billions of
dollar of capital were given profitable
employment through his inventions.
Even in middle life, Thomas Edison
continued to work twenty hours a day,
it necessary to achieve his purpose.
Leadership is not play. Leadership
offers countless positions of varying
opportunity, ot which the highest pin
nacle will mean almost unbearable
responsibility in the new era. There
will be men with the fire and iron to
qualify even for these places. Such
men must have had the yery finest
preparation and the most grueling
test. Their reward will be the attain
ment of these highest pinnacles ot
achievement, and the rendering of an
Immeasurable service to their times, '
