tion to determine the cause of the
"appalling" number of Michigan

Hope 10,000 Textile
Strikers Will Work Soon
NEW YORK, Aug. 12.-(MP-Sidney
Hillman, chairman of the Textile
Workers Organizing Committee, left
a conference of silk and rayon manu-
facturers here tonight with the pre-
diction that agreements affecting
10,000 of the 38,000 workers on strike
in the industry would be reached
within a few days.
Approximately 60 of the 120 or
more manufacturers from New Jersey
and Pennsylvania attending the con-
ference announced the formation of
an association which will attempt to
begin negotiations with Hillman to-

time and the native gods were
thought of as incarnations of Buddha,
whose priests became the custodians
of the shrines.
For a time Buddhism and Shinto
fought for supremacy tooth and nail,
the speaker said, however the mystic,
shadowy lines of Shinto gradually
brought about the ascendancy of its
rival. Even the bloody revolution of
1865 which attempted to substitute
Shinto for Buddhism proved abortive
and as a result the modern Shinto
is simply a code of etiquette for the
court and public officials.
Between the architecture of mod-

ern Shinto and Buddhism, Professor
Hammett could find no difference.
"As far as I can see they are exactly
the same in their structural forms,"
he said, "and I have never been able
to distinguish between the two dur-
ing my sojourns in Japan.
The speaker emphasized the snail's
pace at which religious architecture
has progressed in Japan. Political
turmoil or changing modes may ef-
fect the literature, the art or the
culture of the people but their sturdy
wooden architecture remain unal-
tered, symbolic, he said, of the Jap-
anese man himself, who may adopt
occidental methods of business and
commerce, but in his home all is un-
changed. Once he dons his kimono
he assumes once again the cloak of

CINCINNATI, Aug. 12.-(OP)-The
Episcopal church's youngest bishop,
who was wounded twice during the
World War, is planning to cast aside
some of the dignity of his office as
head of the Southern Diocese of Ohio
and "take the church to the people"-
in a trailer-next month.
The Rt. Rev. Henry Wise Hobson,
46, bishop of the diocese, who is sup-
ervising finishing touches on the4
trailer-cathedral, says it will be com-
pleted Sept. 1.
He has received invitations from
bishops in Wisconsin, New Hamp-
shire and Texas to take the mobile ca-
thedral to those dioceses, but insists
his own diocese will be toured first.
Will Replace Cathedral
Construction of the trailer was de-
layed nearly two months by strikes in
the automobile and steel industries.
The shell was built at Detroit and the
frame-work, including altar, folding
pews, cabinets and other equipment
is being assembled at Cincinnati. An
electric organ will be a part of the
The trailer, which will be called
St. Paul's Wayside Cathedral, will
replace St. Paul's Cathedral in down-
town Cincinanti, which was razed be-
cause it was deteriorating and its
members were served by other down-
town churches.
"This was more practicable," said
Bishop Hobson, "than reconstruc-
tion of the building or building an-
other cathedral because a trailer can
Sbe bought and maintained for less
than the cost of repairs and main-
Looks 50 Years Ahead
"I am convinced that at this par-
ticular time the majority of our par-

ishes and missions need help from the
diocese which cannot be given by
concentrating the diocesan strength
in an urban center.dg
"If someone came to me today with
the offer-'Here's a million-or five
million-dollars to build a cathedral,'
I wouldn't know where to build it.
"A cathedral built in Cincinnati,
or any other city of the diocese might
be entirely in the wrong location 50
years hence."
The church has 23,009 members in
the diocese which extends as far north
as Columbus and Springfield, and in-
cludes 78 parishes and missions.
Bishop Hobson was a major during
the World War, commanding the
third battalion of the 356th Infantry
at St. Mihiel where he was wounded.
He later was gassed at Thiacourt. For

gallantry at.St. Milhiel he was award-i
ed the Distinguished Service Cross.
He was graduated from Yale, where
he was manager of the crew.
Will Carry Exhibits
The trailer-church is 22 feet long
and seven and a half feet high. The
upper half of the rear forms a canopy
when opened. The lower half di-
vides to each side when the altar is
used for outdoor service.
The trailer will seat 20 persons but
general gatherings will be in the
parish churches or outdoors.
It will carry exhibits from eight
church departments-missions, re-
ligious education, social service, pub-

licity, field, evangelism, ecclesiastical
and music.
At least four persons will accom-
pany the traveling cathedral, includ-
ing a minister, an adviser in religious
education, a representative of the
woman's auxiliary and a member of
the laymen's league.
