HARD WORK, LOW PAY
FOR UNEMPLOYED
Salem, Or That the I. W. W. of
Portland who plan making the capital
of the state their Mecca will find
rough sledding in Salem was indicated
when the state board of control de
cided that with the exception of pos
sibly 30 or 40 men, the best that could
be done would be Jobs for a part of
them pulling Mumps on tttnte property
for three good meals a day and a small
wage.
It became evident the charge that
many of the men do not want work
and will not work, was well founded.
Governor West without coiiHulting the
other members of the board of con
trol put 4() of the men to work at var
ious state institutions.
Ten who were sent to the Feeble
Minded Institute, partook of a good
dinner, announced that the proffered
accommodations were not satisfactory
and msrrhed back to the city. Others
aent to the state fairgrounds took lit
tle Interest In the work, and evidently
were glad when the day's labor was
finished.
