Chicago. Sept. u. Informal confer
ence between striking railroad shop
men's chiefs and executives of several
railroads to discuss a separate peace
was under way here today.
The union leaders were sounding out
the sentiment of the managers pending
the meeting of the policy committee of
the shopmen, to be held Monday, when
Bert M. Jewell, president of the work
ers' organization, will recommend ac
ceptance of offers of individual agree
ments to end the strike on a few roads.
These roads were reported to have
notified Jewell that they would make
separate agreement. They include the
Baltimore & Ohio the Chicago. Mil
waukee & St. Paul and other such lines
which were not prepaied to meet the
strike with new workers when It was
called July 1. and since have had little
success In efforts to break the walk
out. When JeweH recommends to his ad
visers making a separate peace it will
be a backdown from his original stand
that the strike was nationwide and
only a nationwide settlement would be
acceptable to the shopmen.

Recommendations for an amendment
to the constitution of the Episcopal
church to permit the admission of
women as delegates to the house of
deputies, were, received this morning
and placed upon the calendar for set
tlement next week.
The proposed change is the altera
tion of Article 1. "Section 4 of the
constitution striking out the "man" in
"layman" to read "lay communicants
of this church, etc ; and also later In
the section to read "one lay commu
nicant." The report of the commis

was' unanimous, the personnel of the
commission including William Ford

The meeting was featured by two
messages of greeting and benediction
from the visiting prelates of the Near
East, his grace Pantelelmon, arch
bishop of Neapolis. and his grace
Gerassimos - Messara. archbishop of
Beirut. The latter spoke through the
medium of his archdeacon, Anthony
Bachir of Beltut, who accompanies
him. Each bishop stressed the. im
portance of unity in Christian faith.
A vote was taken in the house of
deputies as to the elimination of para
graph. 41 of the Gloria iA Excelsis of
evening prayer service, vV'hich reads,
"Thou takest away the sins of the
world, have mercy upon Pis." as a
repetition and therefore unnecessary.
After an eloquent plea In Vbehalf of
its retention in the present form of
the Book of Common Prayer by Judge
Bradford Prince of Xew Mexico, the
vote of the diocese was carried,. 47 for
elimination and 46 against it.
A resolution forbidding 'applause In
