Proposed increase in telephone serv
ice rates in Oregon Bought by the Pa
cific Telephone & Telegraph company,
which comes before the public service
commission for hearing: on March 17,
will be opposed by the city through pre
sentations to be made by Deputy City
Attorney. Tomlinson and Edward M.
Cousjin. city traffic expert.
A schedule of charges made for busi
ness telephones in other cities, prepared
by Mr. Tomlinson, shows that no other
city except St. Louis, Mo., secures as
large a monthly rate for unlimited
single party business connection as is
charged in Portland under the present
ate of $S per month.
Charges Elsewhere Cited.
This type of service for business con
nections is on a lower charge basis in
many of the cities, the following list
showing the cities, population and
amount charged monthly for single
party unlimited telephone service:
Grand Rapids, Mich., 128,000, $3; Kan
sas City. Mo.. 281,000, J5: Rochester, N.
T., 241,000, $4; Louisville, Ky., 236,000.
55.50; Syracuse, N. Y., 149,000, $5; Mem
phis, Tern., 143,000, $6.50; Providence,
Jt. I., 235,000, $6.66; Indianapolis. Ind.,
259,000, $4.50; St. Paul, Minn., 236,000,
6: Minneapolis, Minn., 342,000, $6.
According to Mr. Tomilson, the Port
land exchange of the Pacific Telephone
& Telegraph company derives its great
est amount of revenue from the two
party residential service and for this
class of service approval of the pro
posed rates would mean an increase
from $2.25, the present charge, to $3.25.
Vigorous F'ight Prom iMed.
"There are 25,778 telephones In homes
of Portland under the two-party plan,
with a monthly charge of $2.25," said
Mr. Tomilson. "If the proposed in
crease to $3.25 per month is estab
lished it is virtually certain that a
large number of these subscribers will
have service discontinued, as the serv
ice is not worth $3.25 to these home
owners. In our presc .tion we plan
to make- a strong fisiit against thi3

officials at Washington regarding
wage or other demands waa given
tiovernor Carl 11. Ililliken at a confer
ence with Postmaster-General Burle
ton, it was learned here today.
This decision by the postmster
treneral, it is understood, meets to some
extent the demands of organized tele
phone workers in New lLngland and
the Pacific coast, who ' recently em
powered international union officials,
now in "Washington, to declare a strike
if they deemed it necessary.
Postmaster-General Burleson, in his
interview with Governor Miliikcn, it is
understood, stated emphatically that
his department would treat only with
employes of the compajiies and would
not recognize any professional organ
izer who was not actually employed
by a telephone company.
Governor Milliken took an interest
in the matter after receiving a letter
from the. secretary of the local branch
of the Brotherhood of International

PGHT OVER BOY CONTINUES
Mrs. Julia liarson to Appeal Case of
Grandson to Circuit Court.
Mrs. Julia Larson gave notice to
County Judge Tazwell yesterday of her
Intention to appeal to the circuit court
from his decision In her fight for the
adoption of 6-year-old Burton "Wellner,
her grandson, wno is claimed also by
Vincent F. Wellner, his father.
Judge Tazwell held that under the
existing law he could not allow the
grandmother to adopt the boy over the
Drotest of the lad's father, even though
the father had never seen the laa or
taken any visible interest in him until
he came from South Dakota to fight
the adoption proceedings. The deci-
ion of the judge made the boy a, ward
of the juvenile court, as a dependant
and turned him over to the custody of

That jealousy is chiefly the cause of
domestic trouble and that one of the
main qualifications for a judge of the
new court of domestic relations should
be Homeliness, in order that none of
the parties involved in trouble should
be jealous of him, is the contention of

the district court yesterday asking
recommendation to the governor. The
name of the petitioner is withheld by

The code of .1 child welfare laws
drawn by a commission appointed by
Governor Gardner is aid to be the
most complete ever offered for legis

Enactment of somewhat similar
codes repealing old laws, revising oth
ers and containing new regulations is
being sought in many states by the
ational committee for standardizing
children' laws, which has the support
of the national child labor committee.
But nothing has been attempted on so
broad a scale and the outcome in Mis
souri is awaited as somewhat of s, test
case, according to Lucille B. Lowen
tein of the Missouri commission.
The code provides for support of chil
dren born out of wedlock; raises the
age of consent to 16 years; establishes
the marriage age at lo; abolishes com
mon law marriages; provides for ex
tradition of child deserters; provides
or punishment of adults responsible

state home for dependent children; es
tablishes a bureau for mental defec

serve courts, schools and institutions
in examination of defectives, and pro

The code's labor section prohibits em
ployment of children under 11 in any
occupation unless an employment cer
tincate has been obtained, except dur
ing vacation periods. Boys over 1
years old and girls past IS could en
gage in street trades if licensed and
supplied with badges after special ex
animations. Children under 16 could
not be employed more than eight hours
a day or 4S hours a week, and children
under 21 could not work as night mes
sengers. Special permits would be re
quired for children under 16 working
underground, on power machinery or
on the stage.
Completion of the eighth grade would
be necessary before employment cer
tificates were issued, and the compul
sory school attendance age would be
raised to 16, unless the child had
finished the eighth grade. Poverty of
parents would not be grounds for school
