Along vast fronts, approximating

Rockefeller, Jr., Tells
Why He Favors Principle
Of Collective Bargaining
By John D. Eockefeller, Jr.
(Written for the United Press.)
(Copyright, 1919, by the United Press.)
Washington, Oct. 17. I believe in th
principle of representation in industry,
which includes the right to organize and
to bargain collectively embodied in the
resolution now pending beforo the na
tional industrial conference.
The resolution is intended as a recog
nition of the manhood of the employe
and of his right to be heard and treated
as a human being and not as a machine,
a mere name on the payroll, a cog m
the wheel, a mere hand. I hope this
principle will be endorsed by the dele
gates to the conference
The principle, applied to all industrial
relations, will help to re-establish tbo
personal relationship which existed in
bygone days. This spirit must b re
established, if not in its original form,
at least as nearly as possible to its orig
inal form. Legislation will never bring I
it about. Much of the present strife aW

It does not seem to be that it is the
