Ten or twelve hours a day toils the coolie. If he
carries all he can, he moves one ton one mile irs
one day. For that he receives twenty cents.
Cheap labor! Yet compared with our American
worker, receiving at least twenty-five times as much
for an eight-hour day, the coolie is expensive labor.
In America we move one ton one mile for less than
one cent. The coolie, working by hand, accomplishes
little; while the American, with electricity's aid,
accomplishes much.
Plenty of electricity and cheap electricity --these
are two great advantages which America enjoys
over the rest of the world. While our present gener-
ating capacity is 20,600,000. kilowatts, new develop-
mnents call for 3,000,000 kilowatts more per year.
To college men and women- potential leaders--will
fall the duty of finding more and still more work
for electricity, with less and still less toil for our
workers. For the task is but begunl
