Incen tive Fniiiished by Private Property is Furnished by Communities ipecial to The GlobeGazette New Harmony June sons for failure ot experiments in so cialism were discussed by Conner President Tuft in an address deliver ed at the Centennial celebration of the founding of New Harmony Tha former president outlined the history of the socialistic community experi ments here and drew his conclu sions The moBt notable experiment at New said Tuft is that of Robert Owen failed as all socall ed socialisms fail because it found no substitute for the motive essen tial to arouse and make constant hu man effort that is furnished by the institution of private property and the shaping of reward by competi tion and natural economic adjust ments The plm was buned on the assumption that man was a different being from what he Now Harmony as Taft described wan the center of two experiments In Socialism of very different typos The first was started a hundred years ago by George Rapp a German nia chanic in a motive primarily relig ious The Rappittcs were classed by the speaker with the Shakers and Zoarites Communes 6T Amana and the Commune of Bethel the Aurora and Oneitla community They were all successful for years be snid in the simple meth ods of manufacturers and agriculturo to which their members devoted themselves They are not examples useful for the sociological student in considering present day Socialism be cause their members had not before them the working out of a new plan for society and social progress but rather a method of living a satisfac tory religious existence In tho in tensity of their religious motive was found a spur to industry airt self sacrifice and a substitute for the in stitution of private property which such communities viliolislied Until other forms of Sociilism find sucli a substitute they are likely to irovo futile as tho history of several ill stances of practical trials has dem COMMERCIAL TRAVELERS Special to The Gloltcrtaxollc Houston Texas
