A conference ommJttee of the Indus
trial Welfare '2 commission yesterday
eeninr threw new' light n the cost of
'living- in Oregon-&V!?i nl
After an Investigation throughout the
state, ana including two public hearings.
the committee decided that to maintain
herself in comfort' and decency a, wom
an in orainary employment must earn
not less than 18 cents an hour during
, not more tmn f hours a week. ".
"So that she can .. live as well
work,? Mrs. 1 Gee, a working -woman
member of the conference committee,
pnrasea . - - -, ,.
ft When' it came to the Question of what
women must earn while learning, ft .a
week or II a day, was suggested as an
amount that ; woujd' pay .for food' and
lodging and incidentals but would buy
no clothing. . ,
The committee did not decide upon the
, $8.2ff a week minimum for experienced
J women workers -without disagreement
; Thomas Roberta 'Insisted on an 18.14-a-week
minimum, This would be It
cents ' an Hour-. u Tom , Kay? protested,
saying $8.1 was enough and' aa much
as. employers could afford to pay. Mr.
Roberts answered that the question was
not how much employers could pay but
what a woman must receive ' lor , her
.work; to live In comfort and decency-
f t Saturday Emting .Tknul
How long: does It take the working
man and his wife to get their supper
Saturday evening, then get down town
and empty the pay envelope? . . . ;
i ' Answering, this ' question really de
cided the 8:S0 p. m. Hmit for work at
night The committee had la mind, too,
the country merchant t who waits for
Saturday night shoppers and the one
to three women clerks who would prob
ably lose their places If the Ideal of a
B p. m. working limit should be Insisted
No feature of the committee's work
resented more difficulties than that of
settling the period during which
Woman without experience must work
before demanding the minimum - Waga
The commute bad been thinking of
this in the terms of ordinary apprentice-ihip.j-
Father' Ea V, ;oHara, chairman of
the Industrial Welfare commission, ex
plained that .the word was a misnomer,
that what-was meant was, how long
-nust an inexperienced worker work be

Reasons for ; excepting .women em
ployed in, hotels and restaurant from
he recommendation are obvious. Can
merles were excepted because the gen

ind canneries have to operate when they
;.ave fruit and before it spoils. Tom
Cay predicted that not a cannery In

ndustry was made subject to a 64-hour
Hillng. i Telephone and telegraph com
panies must work at night and must
tare wqmen because men are not' tem
