Universal Spirit

By George Matthew Adams

IN THE private office of the President of one of the greatest of American concerns are these two letters in big, black type on a framed card--U. S. These letters might stand for a great many things. But this is what they actually abbreviate--Universal Spirit. They also mean to--

Co-operate.

The Universal Spirit makes men Trust each other, makes you want to be Loyal to yourself, to your friends, to your ideals and to your business connections. And, after all, the Universal Spirit is but the great desire to help make things run along smoothly--to get things done without a lot of useless bickering.

Co-operate.

Fear, Friction, Discouragement, Distrust, Disloyalty--each is but the backfiring of a lack of the Universal Spirit. You won't have any strikes in your shop if its motto is the Universal Spirit. To get it, start with the Golden Rule.

Co-operate.

Believe that you have a composite part in what goes to make up the finest part of happiness and you won't need to use the dictionary to define the meaning of the Universal Spirit. It is just to--

Co-operate.
