U,S. STEEL HEAD
World Offers Vast Opportuni
ties for American Enter
prise, He Tells Foreign
t San Francisco, May 12. The
world offers vast opportunities tor
American enterprise James A. Far
i ell, president of the United States
Steel corporation and chairman of
the seventh annual national foreign
trade convention told trade experts
lrom all parts of the world here Td
day. His speech opening a four
day discussion of trade, portrayed
conditions in the United States as
leading either to stagnation and
lutineis reverses due to over pro
duction or to glowing prosperity fol
lowing development of world trade
The abnormal demand upon
American production during the war
he says has been projected into the
first years of peace because of the
exhaustion of the world's reserve
May Over Produce.
"We slmll be confronted," he
said, "in a quite unthinkable way,
vfith the fact that wc are able to
produce more than we can sell at
home. We shall face, accordingly,
such' an urgency for foreign trade
es we never before experienced. For,
.either we shall find markets abroad
for the surplus of our industrial pro
ductivity, or wc shall cease to pro
duce it, which is quite unthinkab'e.
'That way Jies stagnation uncmploy
"merit and business eserves.
"But the -world offers vast oppor
tunities for American enterprise.
Needs that have been restricted by
jealous and . discordant political
parties, material development that
iias been checked by the insistence
on narrow spheres of interest will
be governed in the future by broader
and freerer conception of interna
tional co-operation than has ever
prevailed before. '
Th'ere can be no question about in
dustrial rebirth of civilized world,
for it is already in progress, even in
places where industrial . distress
ferns 'most acute and social disor
ganization most profound. -Vast un
developed portions of the world with
fertile soil and cheap labor are en
tering upon a period of rapid de
velopment. They will help supply
the rapidly increasing needs for
foodstuffs and raw materials, and
they will at the same time furnish
new markets for finished products.
Face Future With Confidence..
''We may not be able to tell the
precise extent or fix the exact di
rection of the forces that arc about
to change the, face of the world but
we may face the future with confi-
ilpnrp hv pveri-isp of an. intellurent
foresight and by being ready to ad
just ourselves to the newi course of
"We must devote the' same sus
tained and intelligent efforts to in
ternational commerce that has pro
duced such results in our domestic
"The development of our indus
trial productive capacity during the
war, coupled with the condition in
our national financial status might,
if unintelligently handled, be the
forerunner of distress. But if only
it be handled with intelligence,
energy and courage, there lies in it
a vastly greater potentiality for gen
eral benefit through foreign trade.
