CIIE great, corporate problem before the American people is
not how to wipe out the new domain of property represent
ed by the corporation, nor how to hinder or hamper it, nor
how to take it over into national proprietorship; nor, sim
ply, how to make those who have already come into its pro
prietorship deal fairly and benignantly with the people, as the great
proprietors in the monarchies of Europe might be required to (foal
fairly with their peoples.
I lie great problem that confronts the statesmanship of this day,
like that which confronted the statesmanship that had to deal with the
public landed domain, is HOW TO PEOPLEIZE THE OWNER
SHIP OE THIS NEW DOMAIN; how to widen and deepen the
popular stake in this new possession; how to sweep forward into the
age that is to come, losing nothing overboard from the age that is pass
ing; but with everything aboard so really republicanized that in the
public mind there will be no feeling that tinder our laws and under
the practical opportunities for an individual canter that our laws are
supposed to furnish the field is not open TO ALL ALIKE.
It is not the appetite of the men and women of America for food
tlint creates our problem. It is not their wish for entertainment or
change. What creates our problem is that witter present corporate
policies THE INSTINCT OE INDEPENDENT MANHOOD,
the instinct that characterizes us as a people, finds no field for exercise.
And what confronts us is to find a way that will, with reasonable secu
rity, open to this instinct the whole domain of industrial proprietor
I DO NOT EXPECT THAT WAY TO BE FOUND IN A DAY OR
IN A SINGLE MEASURE. IT IS NOT ORDAINED THAT A PEOPLE
SHOULD GO THROUGH A GREAT CRISIS SO EASILY. I DO NOT
EXPECT THAT THE WAY WILL BE FOUND BY THE MEN WHO
ARE CALLED THE PARTY LEADERS OR THAT IMMEDIATE HELP
WILL COME FROM THEM.
Party leadership is timid. Men in line for the presidency and sen
atorsliips and governorships are men who think many times before
.they take any step that might separate them from the prevailing public
mood. What I aim at is to set in motion the PUBLIC OPINION
that lies behind party leadership.
When the deeper judgment of the nation ; s reached, when the
vested interests of this country come to see that THEIIi GREAT
EST SECURITY lies in having all aboat them vested interests, a
proprietorship that reaches out and oi\, uniU, carrying reasonable se
curity’ it is within the reach of all; when the men who toil for wages,»
*,without flffeting their appreciation of their preient protective agencies,
conuDto ffrtuaW wish for an individual share in the country’s prop
erty, when the country wakes up to the consciousness that benevolence
is not the only thing*that is human; that just dealing is not the only
thing that is human, but that individual ambition to get on in life is
human also; that the wish for a career is human ; THAT INDIVID
UAL INDEPENDENCE IS HUMAN; that some share in the
world’s inheritance from nature is human; when the spirit that in
spired the pre-emption and homestead laws—peopleizing the domain
that fell to our fathers —revives in us, dealing, as we have to do, with
the larger and more different domain that has fallen to us; when the
public mind and heart have been lighted up, ways will he found,
abundant ways, to infuse into this new property domain of the repub
lic, even though embodied in corporate form, the widespread personal
interest and individuality that alone give to property ITS FULLEST
UTILITY AS AN AGENCY FOR GOOD.
social Exclusiveness In College
By DEAN WRIGHT of the Yale Academic Department
PERHAPS the most serious evil connected with the segrega
tion of well to do college students in expensive dormitories
is that it is bringing together, especially in the sophomore
year, those who aim to form the society sets whose chief
purpose in college is popularity and social recognition and to whom
for this reason THE CLAIMS OF SCHOLARSHIP BECOME
So many of the men who have been members of the junior and
senior societies have roomed in these that there is a more or
less prevalent feeling that to room there helps one’s chances for social
advancement, AND THIS IS UNDOUBTEDLY TRUE.
If the social honors of college are to have any value, ALL men
should have an equal chance to g-ain them.
THE SPIRIT OF FAIRNESS IS OFFENDED WHEN HONORS ARE
BESTOWED UPON AN INFERIOR MAN WHO, BECAUSE OF WEALTH
OR SUPERIOR LOCATION OR THE INFLUENCE OF FRIENDS, HAS
HAD AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OVER HIS FELLOWS.
