Dr. Hart Tells Result of Seat

, Men in Need of Work.
CHARITY PLANS PROPOSED
Ir. Hector MacPherson, Keportin;
on Clearing Logged-Off Lands as
Means of ' Providing Jobs,
Declares It ' Impractical.
"Unemployment" and "Co-ordination
of Social Agencies' were the topics
discussed at the state conference ol
Social Asrencles at Reed College Sat
urday afternoon and evening:. and
a number of papers were read on both
topics. Each one of the four ques
tions taken up by " the conference has
been viewed from many angles, and
while there has been some difference
of opinion on' the part of the speakers.
It has usually amounted to nothing
more than a difference In the propor
tion of emphasis placed on different
phases of the same question. The at
tendance haa been good at all of the
The afternoon session dealt with
unemployment. The best estimates ob
tainable by the speakers indicated that
during- the past year there have been
from 3,000.000 to 6,000,000 men in the
United States out of employment all
or part of the time.
Arthur E. Wood advocated the es
tablishment of Federal, state and mu
nicipal employment bureaus on a dig
nified and comprehensive plane, organ
ized so as to get men to the jobs as
cheaply and as quickly as possible.
Dr. Joseph K. Hart spoke on the ex
periences of Seattle In dealing- with the
unemployed in that city during the
past year. He served on the, commit
tee which established the Hotel Lib
erty, where more than 300,000 meals
were served at an average cost, of less
than 4 cents a meal. Nine thousand
were at the hotel during the year, the
least number at any time being 800 and
the maximum being 1600. Two meals
a day were served to tie men ho
were not working, but the workers Rot
three meals. AH of the m--ney earred
by any of the men was turned over to
the hotel, which ended the ear with a
small cash balance after paying .ill of
its own expenses. However, Or. Hart
does not believe that relief measures
of this kind help at all in the itimate
solution of the question unemploy
ment. Dr. Hector MacPherson reported on
the advisability of an attempt to use
the unemployed men for clearing
ogged-off lands in the state which
could then be used for farming pur
poses. He reported that he did not be
lieve the plan practicable because good
farm land in the productive valleys can
be purchased for less than the amount
required in many cases to clear the
logg-ed-off lands, even where the cheap
est methods were used and also that the
cheapest methods could only be used
In the Summer, when the situation In
regard to unemployment was not so
In the evening session the question
of the financial coordination of social
agencies was discussed by several
speakers and plans started for co
ordinating the work of Portland charit
nble institutions for next year. V. R.
Wanning, of the Associated Charities,
made definite recommendations to the
conference. The plan suggested was
to organize a federation of Portland
charitable Institutions as a department
of the Chamber of Commerce.
The conference will hold the final
sessions today, beginning at 2:45.

him as being unorthodox, yet some ex

were in plain view on a dresser.
The $7d00 had been drawn frcm the
