Sit Down.
Strikes. .
T HREE WEEKS AGO Wednesday,
in South Bend, Ind. an elated
crowd of several hundred disheveled beings ju-
bilantly pushed its way through the gates at
the Bendix auto parts plant to meet wives and
children in joyous reunion after nine days of
self-incarceration.
The sit-down strike was over. The main of
their demands had been granted. But the Ben-
dix employes not only succeeded in gaining
recognition for their union, and the Tnited Auto-
mobile Workers of America in adding prestige
to John L. Lewis' Committee for Industrial Or-
ganization, but they also started a rejuvenation
of the American labor movement.
Two days later at the plant of the Midland
Steel Products Co, in Detroit over 700 workers
"sat down" for what became a seven-day en-
campment. Here again, significantly, the strik-
ers were members of the U.A.W.A. Here again

the South Bend drama repeated itself. But here,
in addition to union "recognition," an increment
in wages was also achieved.
Since then the rate of multiplication of sit-
downs has given this weapon the appearance
of the germ plasm of a revolution in American
labor tactics and strategy. Scanning the back
files of one of the Detroit dailies discloses that
of the numerous sit-downs lasting upwards of
an hour, four in the last two weeks went into
the staying stage where the workers remain in
the plant overnight, receiving food through the
windows from relatives and employes on other
shifts.
These four strikes tied up the Flint Trolley
Coach Co., and the plants of the Kelsey Hayes
Wheel Co., the Aluminum Co. of America, and
the Gordon Baking Co. in Detroit.
Of these four strikes, that at the Gordon Bak-
ing Co. plant was probably the most significant,
for in that strike the first attempt was made
to secure legal action to clear the plant so that
production could be resumed.
As Prof. John Riegel of the bureau of in-
dustrial relations pointed out in an interview last
week, the tactical advantage which the strikers
secure by having the scene of the strike trans-
ferred from the streets to the inside of the plant
effectively prevents strikebreaking "The pres-
ence of valuable machinery proves a strong det-
errent to any tactics that might provoke vio-
lence," he explained.
The result, Professor Riegel points out, is that
the employer suffers just as much the economic
effects of a strike as the employee since he can-
not soften the blow by continuing operations with
"sch' "hlor

a plant is more clearly illegal than picketing the
plant entrances and there is the possibility of
clearing the premises by the use of an equity in-
junction or preference of charges of forceful
entry and detainer.
The question, no more than in the instance of
picketing, is not purely a legal one. The fact
that the Circuit Court Commissioner is elected to
office gives rise to the possibility of political in-
fluences on decisions concerning employe-owner
relationships. Witness the case of Circuit Court
Commissioner Robert Sage in the case of the
Gordon Baking Company, who dismissed the
charges on the grounds that a landlord-tenant
relationship did not exist in the case of strikers,
nor could he "find a precedent."
It will be interesting to observe during the
coming winter what the development of the sit-
down strike will be in the automotive industry.
Laborers have promised that these few which we
have seen in Detroit are only the beginning of a
long series.. A great deal depends upon the settle-
ment of the legal questions involved.

What The Church Says
To the Editor:
The interest in the churches and their rela-
tion to the problems of the day evinced in a re-
cent editorial in The Daily prompts the sugges-
tion that, with reference to the Catholic Church,
a perusal of some of the literature on the sub-
ject might prove both profitable and illuminat-
ing.
For instance the following pamphlets are
available to those seeking information.
"The Catholic Teaching on our Industrial Sys-
tem," by Rt. Rev. Msgr. John A. Ryan of the
Catholic University (National Council of Catholic
Men. Washington, D. C.. 1934); "The Condition
of Labor"-Encyclical Letter of Leo XIII, 1891;
"Reconstructing the Social Order"-Encyclical
letter of Pius XI. 1931; "The Depression, Its
Cause and Its Remedy"-Encyclical letter of
Pius XI. 1932; (These three are published by the
Paulist Press, New York City); "International
Ethics," by Rev. John A. Ryan, D.D. and the
Ethics Committe of the Catholic Association for
International Peace. Washington, D.C., 1928
Published by the Association; "A Primer of War
and Peace-The Principles of International Mor-
ality," edited for the Catholic Social Guild (Eng-
land) by Charles Plater, S. J. London. P. S.
King & Son, Ltd. 1915.
Among the books relative to this matter, men-
tion might be made of "The Labor Problem and
the Social Catholic Movement in France," by
the late Parker Thomas Moon, professor of his-
tory at Columbia. New York. Macimllan. 1921;
"Distributive Justice: the Right and Wrong of
our present Distribution of Wealth," by Msgr.
John A. Ryan; "Industrial Democracy from a
Catholic Viewpoint," by the same author; "The
Church and Labor," by Msgr. John A. Ryan and
J. C. Husslein, S. J.; "The Church and State,"
by Msgr. John A. Ryan and M. F. X. Millar, S. J.
In connection with these matters the Cath-
olic Encyclopedia and the Supplement (1922)
might be consulted with profit. The lives of
Cardinal Manning (of England), of Baron Wil-
helm Emmanuel von Ketteler, Bishop of Maing,
of Cardinal Mermillod (of Switzerland) among
others, would serve to indicate something of
the active interest of some of the hierarchy in
contemporary social problems.
Finally, may I further trespass on your pa-
tience with a few quotations now totally irrele-
vant, I trust.
With regard to distribution the present Pope
Pius XI says in his Encyclical, "Reconstructing
the Social Order"; "Each class, then, must re-
ceive its due share, and the distribution of creat-
ed goods inust be brought into conformity with
the demands of the common good and social jus-

tice, for every sincere observer is conscious that
the vast differences between the few who hold
excessive wealth and the many who live in des-
titution constitute a grave evil in modern so-
ciety." With regard to wages the same Pontiff
says in the same letter: "In the first place the
wage paid the working man must be sufficient
for the support of himself and his family." He
takes, as we should expect, a definite stand
against child labor and "the abuse whereby
mothers of families because of the insufficiency
of the father's salary are forced to engage in
gainful occupations outside the domestic wails
to the neglect of their own proper cares and
duties, particularly the education of their chil-
d-en." The Holy Father continues: "Every ef-
fort, must therefore be made that the fathers
of families receive a wage sufficient to meet
adequately ordinary domestic needs. If in the
present state of society this is not always feas-
ible, social justice demands that reforms be in-
troduced without delay which will guarantee
every adult working man just such a wage."
Again Pius XI says in the same letter: "Every
effort therefore must be made that at least in
future a just share only of the fruits of produc-
tion be allowed to accumulate in the hands .of
tie wealthy and that an ample sufficiency be
supplied to the working man . . . that by thrift
they may increase their possessions and by the
prudent management of the same be enabled to
bear the family burden with greater ease and
security, being freed from that hand to mouth
uncertainty which is the lot of the proletarian.
Thus they will not only be in a position to sup-
port life's changing fortunes, but will also have
the reassuring confidence that when their lives
are ended some little provision will remain for

tions because an employer Will give him no better.
he is made the victim of force and injustice."
Again Pope Pius XI says: "In the present state
of human society we deem it advisable that the
wage-contract should, when possible, be modified
somewhat by a contract of partnership, as is
already being tried in various ways to the no
small gain of the wage-earners and of the em-
ployers. In this way wage-earners are made
sharers in some sort in the ownership ,or the
management or the profits."-("Reconstructing
the Social Order").
Finally from the same encyclical, a last quota-
tion: "Just as the unity of human society cannot
be built upon class warfare, so the proper order-
ing of economic affairs cannot be left to free
competition alone. From this source have pro-
ceeded in the past all the errors of the 'Indivi-
dualistic' school . . . Free competition, however,
though within certain limits just and productive
of good results cannot be the ruling principle of
the economic world . . . The economic supremacy
which within recent times has taken the place
of free competition . . . is a headstrong and ve-
hement power, which, if it is to prove beneficial
to mankind needs to be curbed strongly and ruled
with prudence. It cannot, however, be curbed
and governed by itself. More lofty and noble
principles must therefore be sought to control
this supremacy sternly and uncompromisingly:
to wit, social justice and social charity."
The above quotations may serve to show that
the Catholic Church and her leaders are not
without- concern for the welfare of mankind,
for the conditions under which man labors to
earn his daily bread.
-Wm. H. McLaughlin.
Importance Of Theory
To the Editor:
I should like to comment on one feature of a
letter signed P. M. in yesterday's Daily. The
writer quotes one question from an examination
in Economic~ Principles as follows: "Free cap-
italistic enterprise, resting as it does upon an
economy of scarcity, should be supplanted by
some other economic order based upon abund-
ance, the result of technical progress during the
last century." I assume the students were asked
to criticize or to comment upon this statement.
The point on which I wish to comment is
P.M.'s doubt that he will face such questions as
the above when he later needs to put his eco-
nomic principles to use. I can recall several oc-
casions in the last few years in which this very
question has been raised with me by business
men and at least one case in which the question
was addressed to me in a letter by a business
man who, it happens, stated the question in al-
most the identical terminology quoted above. It is
my observation (and this is the real justification
for writing this note) that business men, particu-
larly those in positions of high responsibility,
have in the past few years become intensely
interested in just such fundamental questions
as the one quoted. Indeed, it often happens
that when I wish to discuss some technical prob-
lem of management with business men, I find
that they would much rather discuss the very
questions which college students are prone to
consider as "theoretical" and unrelated to the
world of affairs. I am of the opinion that in
the problems which business men face in the
future, these fundamental economic principles
are going to play an increasingly important
part.
Perhaps I should emphasize that I have no of-
ficial connection with the Department of Eco-
nomics. I have, of course, a keen interest in the
basic preparation in economics of those students
who later undertake a professional study of bus-
iness administration.

School of Bus. Ad.
Let Red Ants Explode
To the Editor:
Why all the fuss about Mr. Kirschbaum's un-
intelligible poetry (?) in the last issue of Con-
temporary? Just so long as the magazine con-
tinues to print human and charming things like
Bernice Isaacson's "Nigger Girl" and, especially,
Mr. McKelvey's "Don't, or The Savage Carousal,"
the editors can wear their hair as long as they

want to. Just so long as -they continue to keep
Mrs. Isaacson and Mr. McKelvey busy, the Con-
temporary editors can have my twenty cents, and
I won't care how many of Mr. Kirschbaum's red
ants explode hills.
In the furore over Mr. Kirschbaum's obscur-
ities, it seemed tC, me a pity that the best of the
magazine went by uncommented upon. Which
is why I have bothered you and your readers in
this Times manner.
-A Contemporarian.
Comical Blunders
To the Editor.:
Did someone say "slips that pass in the night?"
Under "Music" in The Daily of Dec. 10 appear-
ed the following interesting bit of information:
"This movement alone was orchestrated
by composer himself when, at the age of
twenty, he paid his first trip to England, and
was played at a concert of the London Phil-
harmonic Sociey . .. "
And in a Detroit Free Press (date unknown)
occurred the following item, part of an Associat-
ed Press flash:
"The Duke of Windsor spent his first day
of self-imposed exile in Austria in search
of quiet and rest before an old-fashioned
wood stove, kept indoors most of the time by
dark skies.
"Smoke curling from the many chimneys
of the gloomy Enzesteld chateau of Baron
Eugene de Rothschild just outside Vienna
was the only sign of activity within."
