Central Committee to Study
By Ralph F. Couch
(United Press Staff Correspondent)
Washington, Oct. 10.The national industrial confer
ence today voted a recess until 9:30 a. m. next Tuesday to
'give the central committee of 15 time to study and report
on the proposal of the labor group, that the conference
name a board of six to arbitrate the steel strike.
.The proposals of - the ' employers
grnun are divided into twolve clauses,
all of which are in the form of cnunci;
ation of general' principles.uno declares
that "there should) .be no intorferenca
with the open shop,' that is, the shop
in which membership mid non-membership
in any association is not made A
condition of employment. There should
(be no denial of kia rieht M an im-!
ployer mid his workers to agree that
their relations shall be that of the
closed union shop, or of the closed non
union shop. But the right of-the em
ployer, and his men to continue their
'relations on the principles of the open
shon. should not be questioned or de
nied." Under th heading "freedom of con
tract," the employer group insists:
"With tho right to associate recog
nized, tho fundamental principle of in
dividual freedom demands that every
person' must be free to engage in any
lawful occupation or enter into any
lawful contract as an employe and be
secure in the continuity and rewards
of- his efforts.
. llio only qualification' to which
such libcrtv of contmct i. anhbut liu !
in tii. , it " ."-r. ,-
ita fcTL ?Xih?
its imposed by tho constitution to rej
ulate in tho public interest for cxnm
ipie, tor promotion 'of. health, safety
and morals. "
, The iproiK)Bals emphasize-that the
- right io strike or' lock, Jiut. should not
denied as an ultimate rosort, after
all possible means of .adjustment have
ibeen exhausted." '
i -A ' distinction " is made, however,
with respects to strikes and lockouts
in public utility service and govern
ment service, iu both of which, the
code declares "common rights and ob
ligations," made it neceesnry to con
skier the situation from a "somewhat
different oint- of view than private
industry." The code also condemns the
sympathetic strike and lockout as
"anti-social and iminorul."
Other principles in the proposed code
"Kvery association whether of em
ployers or employes must be equally
subject ito public authority and legally
responsible for its own "conduct "and
th-it of its agents.
i " All men have the right to associ
ate voluntarily," but, "the arbitrary
usn ot such collective power to coerce
or control others without their consent
