WILL SURVEY CAUSES
OF INDUSTRIAL PEACE
Washington, D. C. — The Na
tional Planning Association an
nounced the launching of a study
into “the causes of industrial
peace under collective bargain
The NPA, which is composed of
national leaders in agriculture,
business, and labor, will survey
the labor-management relations
of twelve to fifteen firms and
their anions which have experi
enced successful and peaceful in
The project will "be under the
direction of two sperilJ commit
tees composed of both NPA mem
bers and non-members. The first
of these will be a Sponsorship
Committee composed of forty na
tional business and labor leaders.
This committee will be responsible
for the board policy questions
raised by the study. A Technical
Advisory Committee, composed of
twenty-six specialists in the field
of labor-management relations,
will co-ordinate research activity.
H. Christian Sonne. Chairman
of the Board of Trustees of the
National Planning Association,
discussed NPA’s interest in this
woA: “The project is designed
to shift the accent from the nega
tive 'aspects of industrial conflict
to the positive and constructive
results which flow from peaceful
co-operation. Mutually satisfac
tory and profitable relations are
seldom heard about; it is the
comparatively few /cases where
management and h.bor reach a
parting of the ways that make
“Tiiis project would hope to
discover and publicize desirable
practices and policies which could
be used by firms and unhns that
have not experienced the success
ful relations of those surveyed.
“Forty leading representatives
of industry and labor will be in
vited to serve on the Sponsorship
Committee. We feel that partici
pation by such national leaders
in this work will be of great sig
nificance in assuring competent
and impartial findings and their
wide public acceptance and use
throughout the country.”

NLRB REQUIRES $15 TO
$25 MILLION TO ADMINISTER
Washington, D. C. — The Na
tional Labor Relations Board told
President Truman it will need
from $15,000,000 to $25,000,000 to
administer the new Taft-Hartley
The disclosure of the board’s
need for greatly expanded funds
came after its three members
passed more than an hour in con
ference with the President at the
Even as the three men dis
cussed with President Truman the
budgetary and administration
problems posed by the new labor
management relations act, the
NLRB telegraphed instructions to
all its regional offices to give the
new law the “fairest and most
efficient administration’’ possible.
The telegraphed statement hinted
that any employe not agreeing
with the new law’s purposes
The board’s general counsel,
Gerhard P. Van Arkel, had al
ready resigned his post because
of “grave doubts” that the law,
enacted despite a Presidential, ve
to, would work.
The NLRB statement pledging
faff administration of the new act
was made public les8 than 24
hours after Republican warning-*
that executive agencies, particu
larly the NLRB, might attempt to
“sabotage" the law through inept
The statement made* it clear
that the act is “the law of the
land," and that “the people’s rep
resentatives having spoken, the
debate is over so far as this
board is concerned.”
“The Congress has not only
decided issues, but has intrusted
the effectuation of much of the
new policy to the National Labor
Relations Board,” the statement
said. "All who accept that trust
must do so with single-minded
purpose to carry out the Con
