London, Feb. 28.—The feeling pre
vailed In official circles today that
creation of an "industrial parliament,"

decision to postpone their strike until
March 22, has temporarily averted the
labor crisis. Nobody, however, was
willing to predict that the situation
has been eased up more than tempor
The final result of the move to reach
an understanding on Industrial prob

confidence shown by the laborltes In
the new "industrial parliament" and
the ability of union leaders to pre
vent unauthorized strikes by more
radical elements. The weakness of
the situation, It was pointed out, la
that the "parliament" has no real
power and can only advise acceptance
