STAT 13 CAPITOL. Salem, Or., Jan.
(Special.) After being amended
to a status that several Senators de
clared made it "perfectly safe," Senator
Olson's bill to require fathers of il
legitimate cnildren to support and
maintain them was passed by the Sen
One of the amendments provided
that no man can be convicted of being
the father of an illegitimate child on
the uncorroborated testimony of its
Almost every Senator remarked at
some time during the debate that he
favored the principle of the bill, but
these same Senators submitted amend
ments to it about as fast as they could
In its original form. Senator Qlson
aid his bill was almost an exact model
of the Wisconsin law, which has been
In successful operation many years.
Freedom May Be Gained by Pay.
Summed up briefly, the Olson bill
provides for an examination, before a
magistrate, of a man accused of being
the father of an illegitimate child.
If he acknowledges his parenthood, or
is proved guilty, he may pay the mother
a sum agreed to by her and approved
by the judge of the Juvenile Court, in
full satisfaction, and shall be dis
charged. If no such agreement is made, the
alleged father may be tried before the
Circuit Court. If found guilty, he may
be required by the court to pay from
tlOO to 350 a year for support of
the child for the first two years', and
$160 to $500 for each year thereafter
until the child is 14 years old.
If the mother declines to take action,
ny public officer- may make com
plaint and bring the alleged father to
trial. The law gives the illegitimate
child the same right of inheritance
from the father it now has from the
State Aid Would Be Cut Out.
Senator La Follett introduced a bill
today to eliminate the present state-aid
provision from the workmen's compen

"I can see no reason." commented
Senator La Follett, "why the state
should help pay the accident insur
ance premiums of the employers, for
that is what it amounts to. My amend
ment is not in any degree radical, but
merely makes Oregon compensation
law conform to laws in ?2 other states
in which there is no state aid.
"In the last six months the share
paid by the state into the industrial ac
cident fund totaled $70,000."
Rest Bill Appears.
The one-day-rest-in-seven bill, pre
pared by Dr. G. L. Tufts, made its ap
pearance today. It prohibits tne em
ployment of any person more than six
days in any seven. The bill contains
no Sunday-closing provision, and, ac
cording to Dr. Tufts, the one day of
rest may be any day of the week.
A radical bill introduced by Orton
prohibits employment of aliens in the
public service, or on any public works,
by the state, or by any county, city,
School or other district, or by con
tractors working for them.
Violation would be punishable by
fine of as high as $200. It would be
a similarly punishable offense for any
official even to vote to employ aliens.
Loan Superintendent Proposed.

WOMEN FIGHT BILL
Workers Say 48-Holir
Would Be Unfair.
OVERWORK NOW DENIED
Loss of Places Expected If Meas
ure Is Passed and Those Who
Are Not Earning Own Way
Are Criticised for Support.
A vigorous protest has been raised
against the inclusion of certain office
work in the schedule of employment
in the proposed 48-hotir law for wom
en, S. B. 78, by a number of business
women of this city. Twenty-eight
women, all holding responsible po
sitions and whose average term of
service is six years, have formulated
their reasons why they believe it to be
impossible to restrict certain kinds of
office work to a certain number of
Here are the reasons:
"Office work cannot be done by the
clock. We cite, for Instance, Legal
work, which often must be rushed
through, requiring long hours for sev
eral days in succession; bookkeeping
and statistical work which requires
long hours over a period of two or
three weeks at certain times of the
year; some lines of industry, such as
fuel, where the year's work is mostly
crowded into a few months.
Jobs Not Lost In OS Season.
"It Is not practical to engage extra
help for such rush periods. Also, these
rush periods are always followed by
slack times, during which the work Is
light, but the employe Is carried along
on full salary. It is not the tendency
of employers in general to be unjust
or unfair in hours of employment or
quantity of work expected.
"While this bill, if enacted, would
probably not adversely affect inferior
positions which carry little responsi
bility, we believe It is unjust to legis
late privileges to the less capable girls
who are usually only employed tem
porarily, to the detriment of the busi
ness woman who prefers to be on a
basis of equal compensation for equal
"We hold that the law would be un
fair and unnecessary class legislation,
for the reasons that the usual office
hours are not detrimental to physical
well-being, and that It would effectual
ly bar women from holding respon
sible office positions, which proved to
be the case to a marked degree in Cali
fornia when a similar law was en
acted. Non-Workers Criticised.
"Investigation will show that maximum-hour
laws for women are being
fostered by women and others not
themselves engaged in or personally
interested in office work, and that they
are opposed by practically all compe
tent bmsiness office women."

Senator In 1915, Sutton was appointed

also a former Senator, is a Commis

lormer senator Jmus says: The ex
perts attempted something which they
couia not ao. They bungled. The Com
mission naturally thought it could de-
pena on experts' data which the Core
mission was not given time to check.
Additional charges that the student
cost of neither the University nor state
Cortege has been computed by the ex
perts in accordance with the method
outlined by them and that the standard
of comparison "has been arrosslv mis
calculated to the great detriment of
