WHO WILL FIT THEMSELVES TO RISE
NEEK was there so great a need for men and worses of
exceptional attainment! and ildastry i binfM and
professional life. Advancement in one's employment rats
chiefly with the individual himself referring now to pri-
vate and not public employment. Employes in whatever
grade or capacity have only themselves to blame if they
stand still or go backwards.
Competition among employe for advancement is not
. nearly so keen aa competition among employers to obtain
more capable and expert help. There is not an employer in
any line of business industry or profession who does not
continually wonder at the indifference to their own serf
interest that characterizes so large a proportion of .ecspbye.
Opportunity is free notwithstanding any idea as em-
ploye may have that in some way he is Mng kept hack
and held down. A business thrives in proportion to the
competence of its direction the cooperation manifest
throughout the organisation and the ability of the indi-
vidual units in the organization. If any one of these three
requisites fail there 'S trouble.
One of the hardest problems before every employer and
director of a business or industry is
4 women competent to fill the positions
In the army every man and officer
capable to fill the next bigr.tr grade in case of need. This
is a fine theory but it doesn't work. A targe proportion
of soldiers and officers make no effort to fit themselves for
wider responsibilities and while by reason of the rank he
holds a soldier may advance a grade to till a vacancy it
by no mean: follows that he is competent to take on the
new duties and fulfil them satisfactorily. In the army
however movements from grade to grade and from job to
30b are by routine and there is little exercise of intelligent
selection in fitting the man to the job. The system suffers
as a result.
In business there' is more scope for exorcise of choice.
But in theory as in the army theory there ought to be in
every business organisation an understudy for every job a
man or woman competent to jump in and fill the place of
any employe who quits; and this theory ought to apply to
superintendents and department heads so that in each shop
end department there ought tt be employes competent to
fill the higher grades of executive and administrative work
tni awaiting only an opportunity to display their ability.
Is it so in practice? Rarely. Ho employer chooses if
be can possibly avoid it. to go outside the organisation lor
men and women to fill the more responsible posts. But in
the great majority of business institutions this becomes
necessary in many instances. This by reason of the fact
that employes as a rule do not make much effort to
broaden their knowledge improve the intrinsic quality of
their own work and fit themselves to direct the work of
other men and women.
Every employer has often had the experience of offering
advancement to an employe with more pay and more re-
sponsibility and having the offer declined. Many employes
do not care to take on more responsibility yet these same .

DEMAND FOR EMPLOYES
not feel justified in advancing the wage. The employe has
the option of either improving the quality of his work and
thus justifying a better wage or else looking elsewhere for
work where he may be more highly appreciated.
Merely because an employe thinks he is fitted to fill a
better jot) and get more pay it does not follow that he is
correct in his assumption. He should try to concede to his
employer a certain amoant of common sense and a degree
of intelligent care for his own interests. He should try to
realise that his employer has been closely watching bis
work perhaps through many years and that his employer
has a pretty fair idea of the capabiHties of each person
working for the concern. This ettiraars may he nd often
is based on actual results as shown by facts and figures
that cannot be disputed.
It is rare exceedingly tare that mere personal feeling
or prejudice governs an employer's attitude toward his em-
ployes; though the personality of an employe often has a
direct bearing on his chances of advancement his tact or
lack of tact his ability to get along with other people.
that of finding men
The employe who
of reoponsibflity. t treated may not realise the ttue cause of his being "jnmped-
by other employes or superseded by an outsider; but if he
would take the trouble to examine honestly all the factors
involved he would generally discover that he baa some
n presumed to be
shortcoming that holds him back and always wiH hold him
back until he corrects it.
It would be wen if every man and woman working for
a bnsiness concern would earnestly consider for himself
these pointed queries: What am I doing regularly day
by day and hour by hour to improve the quality of my
work and make myself more valuable to my employer?
Am I competent to take the pest next above me and direct
the work of other men and women like myself? If not
what ails me? And if I am not competent to advance aa
I really worth to my employer the wages I am getting?
How many employes devote a part of their time per-
sistently and regularly to study and practice that will
actually improve the quality of their work and their grasp
of wider affairs? Management in any grade of modem
badness demands an increasingly wide scope of interest
iaformatJon knowledge; an increasing soreness of Judg-
ment; an increasing endowment of tact; an increasing
power to order one's own life and direct the ordering of
others' fives to a common end.
The man with breadth of view proportionate to his self
esteem is 'a rarity. Bat every employer is on the lookout
all the time for exceptional men and he will prefer in-
variably to find thorn within bis own organisation rather
than go outside.

ALL LAST night 13-14 October 191S
in spite of rumors of peace we
heard the guns along the front
around Verdun and the flashes of tbe
guns lighted up the horizon. French
returning from the front report heavy
losses. German prisoners brought in;
few wounded prisoners hae been
brought in at any time why?
Memorable scenes and sounds along
the great night road: heavy traffic
both wayst sense of being in an area
crowded with troops and surging v.ith
In this vicinity some villages were
entirely obliterated to that road maps
would be useless without some surli
signs aa these we sec: "This WAS
Ferois" etc the French use of the
pest tense having a sort of grim humor.
On this front there are towns pulter-
ised aa thoroughly as any along the
entire line. Towns between the lines
or close to the lines on either side were
under constant artillery fire during
long years and pnherizod is the only
word that conveys the idea of what
they look like now. Allied artillery
did fully as much actual damage as
the enemy probably more in many
cases. Comparatively little damage was
done to the country where battle noi e-
ment passed over rapidly but "stabi-
lization" meant systematic destruction
of everything in reach.
I fear the work of politicians is un-
doing or rendering ineffective the work
of the military. Now that the world
has lost 10.000100 men is it not worth
another half million if necessary to in-
sure a lasting (not permanent) peace
and substantial justice ? i
It seems to tne a good strategic plan
might bo to continue driving on the
west hold on south and center. mak
feint on right for deep wedge through
Alsace into Germany and make prin-
cipal and decishe 4lne north from i
Verdun vicinity to cut off enemy sever j
his lines of communication and menace
his lower Rhine country by land and
air. I cant see the slue of waiting
men in continuing dne on south or
.center when great rolling up strategy
can be accomplished with good chance
of catting off the Germau armies in
(I did not know at the time that was !
written anything about the American 1
or allied strategy or much about the
general situation but it so happened
that I hit on almost preciseiv the
strategic plan that ended tbe war and
Wader which the entire battle of the
Meune-Argonne was fought by the
American First army. As a matter of
fact under the allied strategy the en-
tire plan was to have been carried Out
after November 11 'as it afterwards
bseaas known if the Germans had
not accepted the armistice terms. On
November 11 tbe line of the Meuse had
been opened edan had been taken
also Stenay and the enemy's main
lines of rommunication had been cut
or were so seriously menaced as to be
practically useless. There had already
been assembled on 11 Novembor 21
divisions on the Alsace front sir
American and 15 French. hich were
to drive in between Metz and Stra-
bourg while the First annv was to
move on at once by way of Jlontmedy
Virton and Longwy to envelop Metz
tbe American Second army meanwhile
being charged to drive through to the
Briey region. All this would obvious Iv
have forced the enemy to withdraw
precipitately from France and Belgium
and concentrate all his forces in de-
fending his home land. Tbe orders for
this vast strategic coup had already
taken effect November 11 ana tne great
combined assault on the entire line was
scheduled for 14 Xo ember. The note in
Ote Diary was made a month before the
war ended at a time when nobody in
the fighting forces dreamt that the
end was anywhere near. Another year
of war was looked for.)
15 October I18 My conviction
formed long ago has been powerfully
reinforced these last few days (cen-
tral powers' peace overtures president
Wilson's reply with "inquiries" etc
and Germany's rejoinder) that tbe
war should go oa to a definite and
overwhelming military victory accord-
ing to the inflexible rules of the war
game and that there should bo no
armistice commission conference or
negotiation until Germany acknowl-
edges herself beaten on land sea and
in the air. and makes a military sur-
render to the military 'authority of her
enemies in acknowledgment of their
victory and her unconditional sur-
render. It is a dull day rainy drizzle. In hut

Germans occupied this vicinity dur-
ing the great push earlv in the war;
German command post dugouts obser-
vation posts shelters ammunition
eaves etc on northwest side of hill
evidencing their advance to front in
south and oast direction. This does
not conform to maps now current
which do not show that the Germans
quite reached here but the evidence on
the ground appears conclusive and the
maps must be wrong. At one time the
Verdun salient surrounded by the Ger-
mans could not have been more than
10 or 11 mileti wide aud every inch of
it was under German fire. Its defence
by the French and the maintenance of
coaDmmucatioc constitute one of the
greatest marvels of the war and noth-
ing involving greater heroism and sus-
tained effort has been developed in the
entire war on anv part of the front.
16 October 118 As war goes on our
strategy will be to penetrate Germany
in Alsace and beyond; and move north
down the Meuse in effort to cut off
German armies and prevent retreat.
The second is the more important for
military success but the moral effect
of the first cm German people would he
