Plans for an investigation of the working conditions of labor in Cambridge were laid last night by the Labor Relations Committee of the Student Union. Results of the survey will be published next spring in a pamphlet.
Heads of several unions in Cambridge will be interviewed by the members of the committee, including the International Ladies Garment Workers Union and the United Rubber Workers. In addition the files of the Sociology Department of the University will be utilized.
Himelhoch in Charge
Heading the committee is A. Jerome Himelhoch '38. The group which will look into conditions in the Garment Workers Union is comprised of Sherman J. Maisel '39, Philip Kazon '39, Hugo Munsterberg '39, and Joseph M. Periman '40.
The other group includes William A. Salant '37, Douglas S. Blaufarb '39, and Arthur M. Wales '40.
What practical results will be forth-coming from the investigations were not disclosed by the members of the committee, but the pamphlets are expected to be of considerable use to Cambridge unions, according to the members of the committee.
