From the first number of The Dearborn Independent under the presidency of Henry Ford, there has been presented weekly a department entitled "Mr. Ford's Page" in which it is sought to offer the ideas of Mr. Ford upon various questions. This page has enjoyed a very wide reading both at home and abroad and has been frequently reproduced in many languages and in many parts of the world. Its soundness and substantiality, its dependence upon the force of ideas rather than exuberance of statement, no doubt account in large measure for the number of friends it has made. The present selection for preservation in a volume has been occasioned by the demand of readers of The Dearborn Independent not only for back copies of certain numbers of "Mr. Ford's Page," but also the very wide request for the "page" in book form. This is the sole reason for the present volume's existence. The selection has been made upon the principle of popularity as expressed by our readers, and also upon the principle of diversity, that the reader may have a variety of subjects to consider. A glance at the table of contents will indicate the wide range which the discussions cover. One characteristic of the page will be immediately apparent to the reader, namely, that independence of thought has not brought with it fantastic angles or impossible counsels.
