Idlers Caught In Roundup Mast Ac
cept Steady Employment In Es
ential - Occupations, or Go
Before Draft Board.
Numerous plana for securing , neces
sary labor to fill the needs of the ship
7rds in Portland, in conjunction with
the contemplated roundup of idlers,
were suggested yesterday at a meeting:
of the special committee appointed by
Mayor Baker.
Release of employes In non-essential
Industries to work In the shipyards,
and supplanting of these employes by
either women or men not physically
lit to work in war industries; a survey
In the various shipyards to reduce the
number of men engaged In occupations i
within the yards that can be handled iK
by a smaller force of men or by using
mechanical or horsepower, and the co
operation .of all men now engaged in
shipyard Industry to work a full day,
thus eliminating the loafing which
tenda to add to shortage of man power
for use In building ships for the Gov
ernment, were considered.
Hcarat Day's Work I rare1.
' Fred L- Bourne, representing the
Metal Trades Council, told the commit
tee that vast number of men now on
the payrolls of the various shipyards
were not being utilised to the best ad
vantage. In the offices of some of the
plants, he said, as high as TO husky,
strong men were engaged who might
be well supplanted by capable women.
In some of the yards, ten to IS men
were used In shoving large- waste
wagons, where one man and a horse
would suffice; In another instance, a
large group of men were engaged In
turning a crane for the purpose of un
loading a large ateam engine from a
flatcar, where mechanical devices
would well work In place of the ma
jority of these workmen, and finally
that in the yards were many loafers
who could be checked upon and forced
to work honestly or sent into the mil
itary forces.
By utilising thla force or men. now
within the gates of the shipyards, a
partial solution to the problem could
be secured, according to Mr. Bourne.
Suggestions were offered by other
members of the committee for an appeal.-
which will' be formulated by
Mayor Baker, for the release of em
ployes now engaged In non-essential
work and the working out of the drag
net for habitual loafers and the men
who work only one and two days a
Reaasaa (a Start Soon.
The programme for the roundup of
Idlers and slackers has not yet been
completed, although the committee are
In accord on the general plan, which
calls for a number of plain clothes
police officers, together1 with several
Government officials and business men
to cast the net, bringing the men to a
central station, which will be selected,
and here to interrogate the men and
ascertain If they are bona fide work
men or are Idlers.
The Idlers, if they be of draft age.
will be given an opportunity of accept- ;
Ing steady employment, but refusal
will send the case to the draft board ;
for action. The workman who labors
only a portion of the week will be ad
monished that he must work steadily
or suffer punishment, and the bona fide
workmen will be released.
Men caught In the snare, who are be
yond the draft age. will be first given
an opportunity to accept employment,
but refusal or failure to work steadily
will ' result In prosecution In the
Municipal Court.
The United States Employment Serv
ice will be used in the nature of a
clearing-house, in connection with the
drive, although the private labor
agents offer of co-operation In the
drive will be utilized by the committee.
