There have been several private meetings recently at which both. Protestant and Catholic clergymen sat down and traded ideas with industrial and labor spokesmen, on the question of labor relations. | Already one important meeting ! has been held at the McCoi-mick ; Spice Company plant in Baltimore, i one of the pioneers in profit-sharing and enlightened labor relations. The study will roach full-dress proportions at a meeting In Pittsburgh, February 18 to 20. to be sponsored by the Federal Council of the Churches of Chcist. Churchmen and lay leaders, representing industry and labor, will be brought together to draft a "code ot moral Pittsburgh Protestant conference. While the .churchmen deny that that they are endeavoring to make religion .1 "bargaining factor" in tha of labor disputes they feel 'that the church should p!ay a tlcftnile part in improving ,vork and pay standards.
