According to the statement which
outlines the aims of the national
committee, the disabled men of the
country are not greatly benefitted by
the provisions of the present bill. In
the bill all ex-service men receive
the same rating and the same bonus.
The national committee urges that
congress abandon for a time its con
sideration of this bill and turn its
attention to the discovery of some
method whereby the disabled men,
about 641,000 in number, may be re
lieved by an adequate compensation,
Also the committee asks that the
measure for vocational training of
the disabled men be passed Immed
iately. The bonus bill as now drafted
would not begin payments until next
year and the committee says that
many ex-service men who are in
capacitated are in straitened circum
stances. Work will be started at once in
Oregon to influence citizens to notify
their representatives in congress to
urge consideration of a bill which
will aid the disabled ex-service men
of the nation without further delay.

Restaurant Owners, However, De
clare Schedule Must Be With
drawn by Jnne 1.
A new wage scale, covering in
creases of approximately 25 per cent,
has been presented by the joint ex
ecutive board of the cooks union ana
of the waiters and waitresses' union
to Portland caterers, to become ef
fective June 1.
Unanimously the caterers have re
jected the demands, which they fle
Clare imrossible, and In return the
caterers have demanded that the pro
posed schedule be withdrawn not
later than June 1, declaring that If
this Is not done the entire catering
system will go upon the "American
plan in industry,' which means that
the unions as such will not be recog
The Joint board of the unions will
meet tonight to consider the reply,
while the caterers will assemble in
extraordinary session today to con
sider ways and means.
Union Man Denies Demands.
Ernest H. Williams, secretary
treasurer of the waiters union, as
serted that no demands have been
made. He declined to discuss any
proposed wage schedule for June 1.
No strike was contemplated, he said
A strike would be impossible, he
asserted, "were there even intention
of calling one, which I do not admit,
for there is a 30-day arbitration
clause in the contracts the unions
have with the caterers."
"We understand the situation thor
oughly, " said J. H. Coe, president of
the caterers' association. "There is
an arbitration clause, it is true, but
we realize that it is the intention
of the unions to carry this matter on
until just before the Shrine conven
tion and then precipitate a strike.
Unions have repudiated arbitration
"We do not Intend to have a strike
precipitated. For that reason we
have notified the unions that the de
mands must be withdrawn not later
than June 1, or on that date the
American plan in industry would b
inaugurated in all Portland restau
rants." Dated May 17, the following letter
was delivered to all cafeterias, res
taurants and hotels:
"We herewith submit for your considera
tion and approval our amended was
scales, effective on and aftr June 1, 1B20.
Trustlne you will give this matter your
earliest possible attention, and again
thanking you for your very cordial and
generous co-operation In the past, we wish
to remain, very reppectf ully.
JOINT EXECUTIVE BOARD.
Caterers of Portland are a unit, it
was declared, in declining to accede
to the demands made upon them.
"As a mailer of fact," said Mr. Coe,
"restaurant prices are at the' limit
now. The larger restaurants could
meet the scale demanded by a rise in
prices. many or us now pay more
than the scale and would not be af
fected, unless we chose, but the hun
dreds of small restaurants are the
ones attacked. I know of scores of
Instances where the owners make less
money a week than they pay their
The proposed schedule is divided
into a series of classes:
It provides for wages of $18 to $21
for 8 hours work for waiters and
waitresses, $21 to $24 for counter
work, boys and girls, combination
work (cooking, waiting and dish
washing). $4 to $5 a day. Extra time
is scheduled for $1 first hour and 60
cents each succeeding hour.
ClniMificatlona Are Varies.
In men's resorts the schedule calls
for $24 to $26. The cafeteria scale
is from $16 to $19. The proposed
schedule for cooks ranges from $30
for a butcher to $45 for a chef in class
opposed by some of the union offi
cials. One leading Portland restaurant Is

per cent of the restaurants and eat
ing places are unionized more or less
thoroughly. The owners assert that
Portland is in no humor for a rise in
wages, for they assert-that thousands
of patrons have been driven away by
increased costs and prices.
The demands were originally pre
sented to individual caterers, but
these advised the union tjoard that
any action taken would bo taken by
the caterers' association as a body.
The demands were then laid before
F. E. Beach, secretary, last Saturday,
were later considered by the execu
tive board of the caterers, which
Monday put the matter back into tha
