What are the essential qualities of

'platform ' man IB to bring a purposeful
message to his hearers and deliver it
, to them in language and manner un
derstandable. Ho must "put his cook'
ies on the lower shelf. " An audience
must feel that the speaker is the mas

Mr. Dlxon realizes that dullness is
not depth and that the profoundest
truths may bo told In the simplest
Ho does not Insult his hearers -wltl

Ills late popular lecture "The

masses special privilege the control

of the land in no uncertain terras and
with a logic that is based upon the
history of Jurisprudence since the
Magna Charta was -wrested from the
unwilling King John.
Ho makes an eloquent appeal fo :
laws that will squeeze the water ou
of every corporation and he flays tlm
complaisant public opinion that toler
ales immunity to the rich criminal bu
insists upon the pound of flesh from
the poor devil.
