The Committee has simply collected and classified the practices now in operation in various parts of the country, both in respect to manufacturing policies and unemployment relief. These pamphlets have already been widely distributed, but the Committee desires to have them in the hands of every industrial employer of labor. For, while the suggestions contained in the outline do not purport to include extensive discussion of all plans for stimulating industrial employ ment or reducing the effects of lay-offs, it is believed that many who have had difficulty in securing information on what is considered sound procedure, will find these plans of value.
