HUGE TASK IS AHEAD
Meeting in Atlantic City Next
Month to Co-Ordjaate
For the purpose of organizing: for
war, all branches of the building con
struction industry have been called by
President Harry A. Wheeler of the
Chamber of Commerce of the United
States to meet in Atlantic City July
15 and 16, when a war service com
mittee will be formed.
Building construction is the largest ]
and most complex of the 200 and more j
war service committees which the |
chamber has initiated since the War
Industries Board substituted that ar
rangement for the council of defense s
advisory committees. Most of the com
mittees previously organized have in
volved merely the co-ordination of
non-members with some representa
tive organization in a single trade.
The Atlantic City gathering confronts
, the task of first federating into one
vast national unit between 100 and
200 national, regional, state and local
associations in scores of trades, from
the cellar concrete to the roof slate,
and then drawing from the result a
war service committee which can
speak for the entire industry.
"Co-ordinate assistance to the gov
ernment during the war" and "re-es
tablishment and maintenance of the
general prosperity of the industry
are what President Wheeler mentions
as the business of the meeting, which
he will open with an address.
Each organization is urged to send
as many representatives as possible
and to name one delegate?preferably
a prominent business man?to serve
on an immediate and temporary war
service committee in case permanent
organization is postponed for delibera
Arrangements for the conference are
being made by Allen Walker, Chamber
of Commerce of the United States,
Woolworth bldg., New Tork city.
