Seven great denominations on this continent now maintain bureaus qf social service dealing with the workingman because Stelzle began ten years ago to preach a new, gospel, pleading for a better understanding between labor and the church. From small beginnings in New York this machinist preacher has built up country-life departments and immigration depart ments of the work, conducted social surveys in city and rural communities, directed a Labor Temple, and been the first secretary of the social service commission of the Federal Council of Cnurches of Christ in America. , And now, with the machinery of these organizations running smoothly, he steps down and out to take up a new pioneering. "The whole people, on both sides of the labor question, are ready to face the facts," he says. "The human side of the labor problem is the great thing. I went into the work within the church, not so much to get the workingmen to go to church as to get the church to go to the workingman and study his problems. The thing we want to talk about is not how to build up the church but how to build up the people. The church is a means , to that end. The world is greatly concerned today with how the people are living." t Stelzle has become a scientific sociologist. He has organized, a staff of half a dozen trained investigators. He proposes to make surveys of humap living conditions for either side in a labor controversy or for social service agencies or public officials. He is going to report the facts, studied at close range, concerning the mental attitude of management and employes toward each other and toward "welfare work," bonus payments, shop and housing sanitation and toward labor legislation affecting the industry. He will look into the religious, political, racial and educational factory in the situation and give an opinion as to what forces In the community are breaking down its life and what ones are building it up, 4y
