Study of the textile industry by a Government agency has been recommended by the Commission on Social Justice of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, the Commission on Church and Social Service of the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America and the Social Actions Department of the National Catholic Welfare Conference.

The three organizations today issued a joint resolution urging a “scientific study of the textile industry by an appropriate Government agency.”

A joint commission of the three denominations has been appointed to present the views of their organizations to “whatever agency of the Government may be authorized to make such a study of the entire textile industry.”

Rabbi Edward L. Israel, of the Har Sinai Temple, Baltimore, who is chairman of the Social Justice Commission of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, has been appointed a member of the commission.
