Department of State Bulletin

ation of Ilo conventions and recommendations;
industrial relations; the principle of equal pay
for men and women for work of equal value;
vocational training of adults, in particular, dis-
abled persons ; and minimum wages in agriculture.
The subject of industrial relations, encompassing
collective agreements, conciliation and arbitration,
and cooperation between public authorities and
employers and workers organizations had origi-
nally been scheduled for discussion at the 3'2d ses-
sion of the International Lalxir Conference held
at Geneva in June 1949; but, since that session
did not complete consideration of the matter, it
was referred to the 33d session.

As the supreme policy-making body of the Inter-
national Liibor Organization (Ilo), one of the
oldest specialized agencies of the United Nations,
the International Labor Conference is composed
of national delegations from the 60 member gov-
cinments of the organization. Meetings are gen-
eralh' held annually. Eepresentation at the
sessions of the Conference, as in other bodies of
the Ilo, is tripartite in nature, with two of the
four delegates from each member state serving
as representatives of the government and one
each representing the eraployei-s and the workers.
The wide area of agi'eement, in the past, between
governments, workers, and employers, indicates
that this unique approach to problems facing the
organization is effective.

In its 30 years of existence, the Ilo, through the
Conference, has adopted 87 recommendations,
which serve as guides for national or local legis-
lation and administration, and 98 conventions.
Of the latter, 58 have been brought into force.

These cover a wide range of subjects including
wages and hours of work ; social security ; indus-
trial safety ; maritime, agricultural, and industrial
labor problems; working conditions in non-self-
governing territories; and the right of workers
and employers to organize into associations of
their own choosing.

Governing Body C'l-O)

The Department of State announced on ^lay 2-1
that Philip M. Kaiser, Assistant Secretary of La-
bor and United States Government representative
on the International Labor Organization (Ilo)
Governing Body, will attend the 112th session of
this group at Geneva beginning June 1. Other
members of the United States delegation are :

Substitute Representative

Arnold L. Zempel, executive director, Office of Interna-
tional Labor Affairs, Department of State


L. Wendell Hayes, Office of United Nations Economic and
Social .\ffairs. Department of State

Edward B. Persons, chief, Ilo Division, Office of Inter-
national Labor Affairs, Department of Labor

Cleon O. Swayzee, labor adviser. Office of the Assistant
Secretary for Economic Affairs, Department of State

Among the subjects for consideration at the
forthcoming session of the Governing Body are
the Direct or-GeneraTs report; fornnihition of the
agenda for the 1952 session of the International
Labor Conference; a program of work in the field
of industrial safety and health; draft allocations
of assessments among member states; and a pro-
gram of regional and committee meetings. The
date and place of the 113th session of the Gov-
erning Body will be decided at this meeting.

Nutrition in Latin America (FAO)

The Department of State annoimced on May 22
that the United States Government will be repre-
sented at the Food and Agi-iculture Organization
(Fao) Conference on Problems of Nutrition in
Latin America, to be convened at Rio de Janeiro,
Brazil, on June 5-13 by the following delegation :


Dr. Hazel K. Stiebeling, chief. Bureau of Human Nutri-
tion and Home Economics, Department of Agriculture


Marjorie Heseltine, nutritionist, Children's Bureau, Fed-
eral .Security Agency

Sue Taylor, home management specialist, American Inter-
national Association, Caracas, Venezuela

The Fao is convening this Conference for the
purpose of reviewing the progress achieved in im-
plementing the recommendations of the first Fao
Conference on Nutrition Problems in Latin
America, held at Montevideo, Uruguay, July
18-28, 1948. Twenty Fao member governments
in the Americas and those countries responsible
for the administration of territories in this region
have been invited to send delegates. Argentina,
the Vatican City, and a number of international
organizations have been invited to send observers.

The forthcoming Conference will consider
methods of surveying the nutritional status and
food habits of populations of the area and will
examine the possibility of improving nutrition
by means of supplementary feeding (through
school lunch programs, feeding of expectant and
nursing mothers and infants, and the feeding of
industrial workers) and by nutrition programs in
Public Health Departments and National Insti-
tutes of Nutrition. Some discussion will be de-
voted to foods of special importance in correcting
dietary deficiencies, to the training of nuti'ition
workers, and to teaching people better habits of
diet. Endemic goiter, which is a serious health
and nutrition problem in American countries, and
the assistance in the field of nutrition, which may
be rendered to American countries under the
United Nations Technical Assistance Program, are
other subjects that are expected to be discussed at
this meeting.
