No one can subscribe to this periodical,
for it is an organ of co-operation and not
for profit. Wherever it goes it will go with-
out charge. It will not be pretentious but
will seek to advise employers and employ-
ers' associations concerning 'legal phases of
the labor problem which come to the at-
tention of the Editor.
To insure success it is essential that all
employers  and   employers' associations
should immediately advise us of any im-
portant suit or decision, any attempts at
state legislation affecting labor controver-
sies and all new kinds of contracts with
With business crossing the threshold of
a new era and the nation passing a danger
zone with its institutions in a plastic state,
there are greater responsibilities before
Our Association sees its great task clear-
ly and does not shrink from the contempla-
tion. It sees, as it saw a decade and a half
ago, that underneath the tug of economic
forces the foundations of law must be
sound and unbroken and it aspires more
than ever before to play a leading part in
preserving those foundations. More than
ever before it must become a great national
storehouse and clearing house on all that
relates to the law of the Labor Problem.
For sixteen years has it labored and the

fruits are good.  Of the record-untar-
nished by any spirit of bitterness-its
member are justly proud.
The future holds the challenge for still
greater service. The exigencies of em-
ployers present multiplied needs. Our As-
sociation is resolved to respond. We have
doubled our staff; our doors are open to
association memberships; our assistance is
sought in widely scattered quarters; we
are making an intensive study of all kinds
of contractual relations with employees;
and this periodical-a new venture-is but
one expression of our new aspirations.
All members     of  this  organization,
whether associations or individual con-
cerns should remember that the Counsel
of this Association is their counsel, to
whose advice they are entitled on all labor
questions, whether it be for the conduct of
law suits, problems of legislation, or the
drafting of agreements with employees in-
dividually or collectively,-on all these
questions we are trying to garner, store,
and distribute the accumulated wisdom
and experience of the nation for the benefit
of all.
Every reported case in every state and
Federal court is in our office, carefully
digested and indexed according to subject
and locality, so that prompt answers can
be given to all inquiries.
