Why Not Arbitration Before Striding? The average industrial dispute in Ibis country, if il reaches the stage of open warfare, passes through three phases. First, there is the period in which both sides hurl defiance and call on heaven and earth to witness that they .are completely and everlastingly in the .right. Next comes She time of outright hostilities. TJie workers lay down their tools and wall; out—or they are locked out by the bosses; picket lines form .-at.'the gates, strike-breakers come to '-' work with varying mixtures of slicep- islmess and defiance; hwuls gel laid • open, tear gas bombs are thrown, windows are broken and the usual bloody and tumultuous procedure,' costly, lo • everyone involved, is followed. • * * • Then, last of all, conies I he settlement. Unless one side or -Ihe other wins a clear-cut victory, Hit!.-general . staffs of the two sides get together, neutrals arc called in, and the whole dispute is put up to arbitration. In the end the arbitration committee hands down its decision, the contending parlies accept it with cheers or with scowls, work is resumed again —and one more industrial muss-up is over. It makes a rather dreary and dis- .1 .conraging routine^ It is horribly ex." ,pensive; tho owner loses dividends, iJsomeUrii?s loses fat orders, frequently has property damage to pay for; the workers lose wages, and in many cases get'clubbed and punched as well; the general public suffers inconvenience, has to" pay for extra |iolice work and (i\ varying ways plays the unhappy role of the innocent bystander. * » • And it all leads one to wonder—why, since the average dispute winds up in arbitration anyway, tati'l arbitration be resorted to in the first place to save all this trouble? The answer, probably, is that lo be stubborn and opinionated is a very ancient human trait which lias not, to date, shown many signs of disappearing. Arbitration can hardly bo forced on ; the contending parties—not without revising our whole political and economic framework more than most of us are .'.'prepared lo do at this time- But (he MONDAY, JULY 23, 1934 OUT OUR WAY stern logic of hard facts points directly Iqward it.

Airships In the Air The navy has not yet decided what il ii; going lo do about dirigihle.s in the future. , There are good reasons for suspeclim; thai the Mucon will.

Koscmialil, who once commanded the Akron and who know:; dirigibles about as well as any mini in the navy, still has faith in tlcu ulilily of that kind of ship. Sir. lloseiuiiihl recently wrote out his own analysis of the crash thai robbed the navy of the Akron- lie asserted that the disaster was due to a combination of causes, and he added: "1 believe that each of the problems thereby demonstrated is capable of practical solution for the safe and cf- ticient operation of airships in the future." Before a linal decision as to the future of naval dirigibles is made, it might be wise to have 51 r. Roscndahl slate his ['Hidings al considerable length. engineer.
