SAMUEL GOMPERS-
The personification of the spirit of {
American labor has passed with Sam-
uel Gomners. He was practically the
founder of its federation, its leader
for more than forty years, and its in-
spration for all time. It was Samuel
Gompers who made possible the pres"-
ent general understanding of labor
conditions, it was he who worked un-
ceasingly to keep the organization;
free from the trammels of Bolshevisticj
influence.1
There is much romance in the
career of America's great labor leader.

T HINK of good will not only as a Christmas suggestion.
Make it a part of your year 'round creed. Practice it daily.
Cultivate the habit continually. You will be thc greatest beneficiary.
But Christmas time, when this spirit of good will is most in
the air, and most in the minds of men, is a good time to consider
it carefully. Carefully lest when the spell of the holiday spirit is
spent, we again neglect good will. For the heritage of good will
to the individual is contentment and happiness, to industry it is
growth and a good name, to society it is peace and prosperity.
Without this saving quality towards his fellows, no individual
may consider himself successful- He has neglected his greatest
opportunities. He has sold his birthright for a mess of pottage in
living for himself alone. He finds himself cold to those finer
sentiments of mankind which are a true measure of greatness.
Nor can an institution long exist without good will. It is the
firm foundation upon which every great industry is founded. It is
the power behind governments that makes them strong, just as it is
the quality within the hearts of men that makes them great-that
makes friends for them.
From Bethlehem comes our greatest lesson in good will.
Christ taught us. But we soon forget. It is his birth we celebrate
with perhaps too little thought to its real significance.

But we'll all enter heartily into the spirit of Christmas--the
spirit of good will. Maybe a few will carry some of it with them
into the new year, and into the years to come.
