RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY NA
TIONAL WAR LABOR BOARD
JULY 31, 1918.
Resolved, That the National . War
Labor Board deems it an appropriate
time to invite the attention of employ
ers and workers alike to the wisdom
of composing their differences in ac
cord with the princ.ples governing
the National War Labor Board, which
were approved and promulgated by
the President in his proclamation of
April 8, 1918;
That this war, is not only a .war of
arms, but also a war of workshops;
a competition in the quantitative pro
duction and distribution of munitions
and war supplies, a contest in .Indus
trial resourcefulness and energy;
That the period of the war is not
a -normal period ot industrial expan
sion from which employers should ex.
pect unusual profits or tbe employees
abnormal wages; that It Is an inter
regunm in which industry Is pursued
only for common sause and icommon
That capital Bhould have only such
reasonable returns as wil assure Its
use for the world's and Nation's
cause, while the physical well-being
of labor andJits physical and mental
effectiveness in a comfort reasonable
in view of the exigencies of the.war
should likewise be assured:
That this board should be careful in
Its conclusions not to make orders in
this interregnum, based on approved
views of progress in normal times,
which under war conditions, ' might
seriously impair the present econo
mic structure of our country.
That the declaration of our princi
ples! as to the living wage and an es
tablished minimum should be con
structed In tbe light of these consid
