REEL 47_0404.jpg

Miss Jane Addams

"I hope very much that the day is not very far distant when the labor unions of this city will be inviting the City Club and other civic organizations to come to the opening of their building. (Applause.) I hope that they may have a building somewhere down town as beautiful as this, and, when that day comes, I think that some of these problems will be nearer solution because of meetings such as this, because we do recognize that the labor problem is being pushed more and more into the political field, and that it is only when it is regarded as a social situation, as a social problem, that we are beginning to attack it on the right plan." (Applause.)
