The Joint Council of Knitgoods Workers Union has established an educational department for its members, it was announced yesterday by Louis Nelson, general manager. The aim of the department will be to develop through lectures, classes and literature a union consciousness, loyal and intelligent support of the union and an understanding of the problems confronting the workers in the knitgoods industry and in the general labor movement.

A central school will be started at the union headquarters, 28 Graham avenue, Brooklyn. Classes in American History and Elements of Unionism will be held every Monday evening. Music and dramatics classes also will be organized. Regular weekly forums will be conducted at an early date.
