Audit of Firms Sought, Shift of Cred.

ors for Worthy Industry.
Chicago.—A dozen recommedatlons
for relieving unemployment were
adopted at a meeting of Chicago fed-
eration of labor. They covered inter-
national trade, American banking,
public works construction, extension
ol trade unions, audit of books of firms
that shut down factories.
John E. Fitzpatrick, president of the
Chicago federation of labor, presiding,
announced that eighty-four Chicago
unions out of 300 sent delegates tc
the me'etlng; that these unions repre-
sented 34,000 out of more than 200,000
Chicago union men, and that of the
34.000 men represented at the meeting,
10.000 were out of work. The largest
percentage of this unemployment was
announced in the building industries.
Mr. Fitzpatrick presented these rec-
ommendations, which were adopted
with a recommendation that andther
meeting be held in two weeks hence.
For immediate relief:
That the federal authorities shift
the extension of credit from speculat-
ors to legitimate industry, especially
the building Industry.
That federal authorities open trade
relations with Russia in order that
Russia may place some of its billions
of dollars of orders in the United
That authorities begin construction
at once on public works already plan-
ned. and to plan new projects.
That a committee of the Chicago
federation of labor take up unemploy-
ment with the Illinois federation of
labor, and that If immediate relief is
not forthcoming, that the Chicago fed
eration devise ways for relief through
shorter hours of work.
For permanent relief:
That the standard working day be
permanently shortened to provide
work for unemployed.
That each Industry organize so as
to be able to give permanent work to
