Douglas County .
Payroll In July
Nine of Oregon's 36 counties
reported higher payrolls during
the first quarter of 1949 than for
the same period last year, but the
biggest gain (from Crook) was
only 1119,014. the State Unem
ployment Compensation commis
sion announced today.
Douglas was the largest coun
ty to record an increase, but
Multnomah county's 6,174 liable
concerns paid out only three
tenths of one percent less in
wages than a year ago. The over
all 4.3 percent decline for the
state was from $215,473.11 in the
record opening quarter of 1948 to
$206,303,631 this year.
Last year Multnomah county
reported 48.1 per cent of the
state's subject payrolls, but this
year managed to tip the scales
at slightly more than half of the
total. In early 1948 an average of
138,647 employes were paid $10J,
606.954. while this year's totals
were 132.784 and $103,269,862.

Crook county with nearly 80 per
cent of its employment in the
woods made the largest gain,
while Harney, Jefferson, Morrow
and Gilliam had lesser increases.
Although Douglas county's 730 re
porting firms paid $85,044 more
in wages, its lumber and logging
payrolls declined by $345,449 to
$4,698,064 but still ranking second
