Nor is the situation stultifying As those who wag their fingers in warning would have us believe. Since Fortune the number of min ing and manufacturing companies has increased from about to 360.000, or by 50 per the conclusion is that the of the big 500 is no threat to competitiveness if the. Business birth rate and population statistics mean anything. There were found to be 21 firms in the 500 which each did More than a billion dollars in sales last year. General motors was tops with about ten billion. Standard Oil . Had Over five billion in sales. . Steel was third with More than three billion. There has been a sneaking suspicion in some circles that when big business gets bigger it cannot escape a destiny of service rather than profits. Shaving prices and manufacturing costs to the Bone to increase sales could not Lead is someone keeping an Eye on Junior agents and legislature confusion it is exciting to discover a Public figure who bases his actions upon a philosophy of life rather than upon some temporary political advantage. Of course for Herbert Hoover there is no longer any temporary poll Cal advantage therefore he can afford to View Public problems with Complete objectivity for at least a decade i have heard him say that second making a go of life by Roy l. Smith some common Basic experienced wednesday read revelation god presses n upon us. The questions concerning which we thinking yesterday Lead us out into an entirely different phase of one into which none but a self conscious individual can Ever go. It is a Region far out beyond sex hunger or physical sensations. As pursue the questions we find ourselves suddenly thrust out beyond the Range of intellectual curiosity to where we Deal with issues which cannot be reduced to Mere mental measurements. As we pursue the quest we find ourselves forced to make profound moral decisions in which the most minute details of existence Are involved. We leave. Off asking Why we live and begin deciding How we shall live. In the fact that All human beings ask these searching questions discover one of god s first credentials. We Are All Well aware of the fact that these queries surge up within us but we Are also sensible of the additional fact that they Are not a part of us. They Are forced upon us from something or someone outside us. For he Lack of a better name we say it is let anyone who questions whether or not he has Ever met god recall the instances when he has been compelled to Deal with such questions let him remember the restless nights the persistent Way in which the problems pursued him. Let him recall How he thought More care fully than he Ever did in his life before. Then let him put this Down As a great discovery any Man who has asked such questions has asked them because god was pressing in upon his mind and spirit. Anyone who has asked deep questions has been dealing with god. Forgive me for the scant Courtesy i have accorded thee this Day. O and. I have met thee and have not recognized thee. I have been dealing with thee and have not been reverent. 1 have been receiving inspiration from thee and have not been thankful. Forgive me. Study the great desires of your life which arc the greatest you Ever experience Are they longings for physical satisfaction or for. Peace of mind and Security of spirit Are you living primarily in the. Physical or the spiritual realm from shaking a go of by Roy l.

The new study tends to confirm this. Big sales were no guarantee of profits. One firm fifth in total sales was 98th in net profits. Another 37th in sales was 364 in profits. All the list was similarly juggled. By another measurement the figures were even More re assuring to the Public. When profits were considered on the basis of percentage of sales or of assets the biggest were far from top performers. Considered this Way general motors was in 81st position and the other biggies were similarly outranked by smaller firms. The 21 corporations which topped a billion in annual sales averaged a modest 7.5 per cent net profits on these sales. This compares with 6 per cent for All 500 As a group and 4.6 per cent for All manufacturing and mining concerns. Some of the list of individual smaller companies picked off up to 36 per cent. This will be the last Job i under take. I shall probably be dead be fore it is the Man who is not afraid of death is not afraid of the consequences of life. And therein perhaps lies also the advantage of Chancellor Konrai Adenauer 79, who is proving him self the Wisest statesman in Europe it can mean so Little to him if he is unpopular. What has he to lose personally but what has he to gain for his country these older men can Well afford to submerge themselves for their country they have discovered by Long life and great experience that self does not matter too much.
