"Therefore, to obtain the desired peace between labor and capital, recourse hrs been had by orgamza- tions and professions to trade unions, with the understanding that these are not weapons meant ex- clusively for defensive and offensive war, providing: reaction and rep- risals, nor a torrent which inun- dates and divides, but a bridge which serves as a uniting bond: "We have already had occasmn to point out how, above and beyond distinction between employer and employee, there is that higher unity which binds all who eollabor- ,t CLOGGED SEWERS CLEANED Ruddy Bros. 65 S.

This unity should be the foundation of the fu- ture social order. Professional or- ganizations and trade union are provisional auxiliaries; their end is the linking and solidifying of the relations between employers and employed in order to provide joint- ly for the common good and the needs of the entire community. "However, beloved sons, neither professional organizations bar trade unions, nor labor manage- ment committees, nor collective contracts, nor arbitration, nor all the directives of the most vigilant and progressive social legislation will be able to provide a complete and lasting labor peace, and pro- duce all their benefits unless there is also a far-seeing and constant effort infuse the breath of spirit- ual and moral life into the very framework of industrial relations."
