Is an American birthright won
by the blood and sweat of our fore
fathers slipping from our grasp?
James F. Lincoln, nationally known
expert of work incentives and pres
ident of The Lincoln Electric Com
pany, Cleveland, says it is.
Lashing out at Government poli
cies which discourage the people's
will to produce goods that go to
make up the nation's high stand
ard of living, the out-spoken in
dustrialist told in an interview how
he believes one of our birthrights
is being strangled.
A big, vigorous man of 61 with
ruddy complexion and .. full shock
of gray hair, Lincoln's eyes flashed
as he spoke of a planned drift to
wards socialism at Washington
which is taking away the incen
tive for the individual to develop
his latent abilities to the utmost.
Asked what the industrial in
centive system he favors has to
do with farmers, the industrialist
replied that his remarks were not
confined to industry or to systems,
rather he was thinking about the
incentive for any producer to pro
duce. "What would happen on two
neighboring farms," asked Lincoln,
who was reared on a farm him
self, "if one farmer applied him
self to intelligent planning, plant
ing and cultivation , of his crops
and backed it up with plenty of
hard work while the other farmer
did not apply himself so diligent
ly? You know which one of those
farmers enjoys the better stand
ard of living.
"Now. what would happen if the
Government came along and told
the more productive one that he
should have no more than the
other: so from now on he must
turn back all rewards received
from his farming in excess of
those of his neighbor?"
"The Government did it to us. It
could do the same to farmers," he
said in level tone, looking directly
irto the interviewer's eyes while
h. controlled the indignation with
in him. "Here is what happened."

tory of his company. It took 110

d Hodges and the doctor were
holding forth about how words
only mean something when you
think about them; and that a lot
of words seem to lose their
meaning just because they're,
used too glibly.
As the doctor put it, "They
roll -off your tongue without go
ing through your mind. Take
tolerance for instance ... some
of the people who use it most
understand it least."
From where I sit, it looks like
the doctor is right But tolerance
is mighty easy to understand.

welder before incentives were of
fered 10 years ago and it takes 19
today, he said. A ton of welding
electrode required 72 man-hours to
produce then and 2 hours and a
few minutes today.
These remarkable gains were at
tributed by Lincoln tp his com
pany's incentive system which re
wards workers in proportion to
what each contributes to total out
put either by production efforts
or helpful ideas on production.
While such production strides
were being made, the average
yearly income of Lincoln factory
workers climbed from $1300.00 to
$5400.00 and the prices for their
output declined. For example, few
men in farm areas would have
found it practical to buy a weld
ing outfit 10 years ago at a price
of $550.00 to carry on a repair
business for broken farm equip
ment in their district, but many
are doing a useful and successful
business today with the same type
of welders bought from Lincoln at
$190.00. Simultaneously, the re
duced prices so widened the sale of
Lincoln equipment that the plant
had to increase employment from
206 persons to over 1000.
The widespread "know how"
r&ined during the past ten years

mares. After explaining how his com
pany had made this production-at-a-low-cost
and high-wage record,
"The Treasury Department step
ped in and slapped a $1,600,000.00
assessment on the company and
the Price Adjustment Board added
a renegotiation penalty of $3,250,
000.00 after this splendid team of
production workers turned its ener

Lincoln questioned the Govern
ment's sincerity in desiring to
save the people's money through
renegotiation and stated that it
had cost this country billions of
dollars more than it had saved. He
stated that this was because ef
