Ira I Rlggs spoke of the state
chamber as the instrument by which
the various sections of the state are
being bound together to work towards
a common end. Any spirit of jealousy
which may have existed between the

to another section. The value of the

out, and plans greater activities along

HOOD RIVER, Or.. June 7. (Spe

president of the federation, antf Mrs.
C. O. Huelat. president of the Hood
River Woman's club, just back from
the Enterprise- convention of the
Oregon Federation of Women's Clubs,
have unstinted praise for the people
of Enterprise, who entertained
elaborately for the delegates to the
eastern Oregon community.
"While it was, comparatively speak
ing, a email convention in numbers,"
says Mrs. Castner, "I consider it the
most successful ever held in the
state. It brought about a better
acquaintanceship between the people
of eastern Oregon and the rest of
the state that will have a lasting
beneficial effect. The action of af
filiating with the Intermountain and
Coast Federation, to be comprised of
state organizations of 11 Pacific
coast and intermountain states, will
be of vast good.
"Americanization was the main
topic of the convention. The organi
zation took up plans for community
service, also, based upon work ac
complished at Corvallis by club
The trout luncheon at Lake Wal
lowa, with 1000 fat trout served, was

"We were greeted on arrival with

tween the weather was glorious.
Enterprise displayed all kinds of
climate for us."'
Mrs. William Bell of Roeebure.
second vice-president of the federa
tion, stopped off en route home for a
week's visit with Mrs. Castner.
Miss Bertha Davis-of Oregon Agri
cultural college reported at the state
federation that the teaching of home
making in the grades is a necessity.
bhe appealed strongly for the sup
port of home economics. She said in
many communities there are visiting
committees, sensible women who will
isit the schools and who can make
constructive criticism. She said that
the old type of home economics was
failure, but it now is real home
making and is helpful to the girls.
PAY RISE GRANTED
TO CITY CHEMIST
Paving Superintendent Will
Receive $325 a Month.
OTHERS WANT. MORE TOO
Various Departments of Govern
ment Declared to Be Hampered
Because of Small Wages.
An ordinance increasing the salary
of R. S. "Dulin, city chemist and In
charge of the municipal paving plant.
from J275 a month to $325 was passed
by the city council. Although the
council has gone on record against
any salary rises. City Commissioner
Barbur urged the passage of this or
dinance on the ground that the work
performed by Mr. Dulin, as superin
tendent of the municipal paving plant.
has reached such proportions as to
require more money. This increase,
together with one granted to a police
woman, probably will pave the way
for an endless chain of requests for
increases from other city employes
who feel that they, are entitled to
Wi(t (or Labarrrv Embarrasses.
Because the wage paid by the city
to common laborers. $4.60 a day, ia a
dollar a day or more less than the
market wage paid to laborers, it is
becoming almost impossible for the
city to retain competent laborers.
The municipal water bureau has
been hard hit by the small wage paid
its laborers. It Is estimated by Chief
Engineer Randlett that the city is
forced to pay more a yard for removal
of dirt from trenches than if the city,
were paying the higher prevailing
Engineer Randlett appeared before
the council at the preparation of the
last budget and urged that a certain
sum be set aside for use in payment
of day laborers, a plan utilized by
Spokane. This the council refused to
do, insisting that a uniform wage for
laborers working tor the various city
departments was essential for the
good of city service.
Many Quit Every Day.
It is known, however, that In the
water bureau none but the old em
ployes remain on the job at prevail
ing wages. The average day in the
water bureau sees from one to five
men demanding pay and leaving' the
city service for new and more lucra
tive service. This turnover in labor
is a heavy drain on the city service,
but cannot be prevented as long as
the difference exists between the
city's scale and the price for labor
paid on the open market.
Efforts to standardise salaries in
the city service has gone for naught,
although City Commissioner Pier, in
charge of the department of finance
is working on a plan which he hopes
to be able to present to the city coun
