CONFERENCE DEADLOCKED
Employers' Group Declare Emphati
cally For The Open Shop
"WTashiirg^ori'} Oct. 11.?There must
be co-cjpe.Eat'iQn^ if produc
tion is it'o increase,* and employer and
emljjJoyee must mkct on common
grouivd, the errtployors giroup declared
yes'teretey in a. resolution submitted
to the Industrial Conference in answer
tq t)he programme whfch' the hib'o-v
g'j'oup htas Advanced. . J t"
; 'Because,, of disagreement in the
Cpmimitiiee ' of Fifteen, stru^lmi?r
over the labor tesolultion. to arbitrate
the steed strike, the In'dustrSal Con
ference:,agam i came to a >de&dlc?ck and
adjourned yntrl Tuesdav with the hope
that by-tlfcit date the,.-difference can
be ironed cut sufficiently' to allow the
ccnfereu'ce to proceed.
The comlmittee:yesxerd!ay considered
t% steel strike question .without be
ing able to. report out the resolution.
The majority of the emipflqyers group
oppose ft, and there are a number in
the public group wMch wlQl vote
a gain sit it. The steel strike, s?ome con
tend is virtually over, and many of
the delegates deplore its introduction
into the conference. Whatever action
may be taken by the committee, it is
ceritadn that the issue will eventually
come to the floor to be fought out in
open session.
The employers group in outKnlrtsr
its posfitioai declared emphatically for
the open sihop, the iss\ie on which
the steel strike binges. There should
be no interference of the open sh'op
and the riig'ht of the employer and his
men to continue their relations on that
principle should not be interferred
with, it was argued.
The sitand of Judge Gary was afain
upheld when the resofuticn of the em
ployers' croup declared that no em
ployer should be required to deal with
men or groups of men who arc n'ot Wis
employees or chosen by and among
them. At the same time the report
emphasizers the fact that the right
to strike should not be denied when
all other means have failed.

DISPELS UNCERTAINTY
Ships Built In Alexandria Rank
Among Best Afloat Says Shipping
Board Officials.
j The average Alexandrian may not
j have appreciated the significance of
j t'he recent ptptch'ase by the Virginia
j Shipbuilding Corporation of aJl the
I shrips which this corporation has
I built, is building and which it con
! tracted to buFld for the United Sta'tes
Shipping Board Emergency Fleet
Corporation.
All other shipyards with Emerg
ency Fleet Corporation contracts :ure
ncaring the completion of their con
tracts and are, therefore, forced to
depend upon contracts wi'th outside
firms in order to keep their yard's
busy. In. the great majority of cases
I such contracts have not been avail
! able. The position of the Virginia
Shi/pbuiMng Corporation, however, is*
different. The new contract with the
United Staites Shipping Board Emer
gency Fleet Corporation provides the
Virginia Shipbuilding Corporation
with the shipfe themselves after they
Wave been built. The corporation may
in other words, "eat its cake ami have
it too."
Its continuance as a going concern
!s therefore, a<ssiured. The uncertain
ty regarding the future of this big
plant l'cr years to come is dispelled).
Officials of the Shipping Board are
authority for the statement that the
ships built at Alexandria rank among
the best afloat. The corporation has
recently been organized on a p:\ice
time basis ami the ycrd fare?, which
new ntnnbera 2000, has been we Wed
iivto a compact, ef.ficicnlt and loyal or

Alexandria is to be congratulated
upon having a- corporation headed by
far-sighted executives who have so
quickly stabilized the Virginia Ship:

? STRIKE DELAYS MAGAZINES
Unprecedented labor troubles in
the printing1 and publishing trades
in New York City is delaying; the
publication of a number of promi
nent magazines.
Anions; these is the November
number of Cosmopolitan which or
dinarily would now be on sale in '
Alexandria as well as all over the
United States. The publishers are j
planning1 an edition of 1,230,853 cop
ies?largest in the history of the
: Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Wholesalers in this vicinity, how
I ever, have been informed that the
I next issue of Cosmopolitan may
| reach here anywhere from ten (fays
j to two weeks later than usual?and
J may, indeed, roach here even later
than that. Everything depends upon
the labor situation.
This will naturally be a tfravo dis
appointment to those who are read
ing Cosmopolitan regularly and are
in the habit of getting it about the
tenth of each month.
Among the novels now appearing
serially in Cosmopolitan, publication
of which will be delayed, are ''Kin
dred of the Dust" by Peter B. Kyne;
"The Crimson Tide" by Robert \V.
Chambers and-"Uneasy Street," by
Arthur Somers Roche.
It is hard enough to wait fcr the
short stories we, may expect to find
in the next Cosmopolitan without
being kept in suspense as to the
continuation of the joys and the
sorrows of the characters depicted
by these eminent novelists.
An advertisement in Alexandria
will announce the appearance of the
next issue of Cosmopolitan Maga
zine. Wait for it and watch for it!
