Organizations With Other Interests
Soon Lose Caste With Politicians
From the Wichita Eagle
One of the reasons which has persuaded the American Fed*
eration of Labor to renounce future official indorsements of third
party political movements is confirmation by its leaders, in the
last campaign, of the rather curious fact that a body of men or
ganized for one purpose can not be diverted to another purpose.
This limitation is known to all men who organize and yet they are
continually forgetting it. The men with the most highly de
veloped tense of organization are the politicians. Their prosperity
is grounded in keeping an organization grouped around the gen
erality of a party name and they know it. Any departure, how
ever slight, from that generality is not regarded by them as safe.
Time after time they are under the necessity of departing from it
by extolling to the heavens some single person, the party nominee,
but the minute they detect that the person extolled believes him
self to be stronger than his party, then the politicians begin back
pedalling in their praise of him. This was one of the chief .causes
of the memorable revolt of the republican politicians against Theo
dore Roosevelt. Organizations not primarily political can be con
trolled measurably and for a short time for political purposes.
But when the primary purpose of the organization is permanently
subordinated to a personal, a political or any other aim, the or
ganization begins to dissipate. The leaders of the American Fed
eration of Labor, who are past masters in the art of organization,
therefore decided that, the action of the federation in the national
campaign of 1924 shall go down in history as a mere temporary
excursion, and not a practice. __
