Department Without Funds for
Continuation of Offices .and
Branches Are Being Closed.
Eugene and Astoria Plan to Raise
Fund for Continuation of Serv
ice; Local Office Still Open.
-Owing to the failure of congrens to
paes the deficiency appropriation bill,
to allow the United States employment
bureau to continue its broad rplan of
service until the next appropriation be
comes available in July, a considerable
cut in the force employed by the bureau
: went into effect Saturday. Early in
January the Portland bureau . moved
into it present offices at Third and
Oak streets with a largely increased
staff, making that the headquarters for
the state. The bureau will continue Its
Portland office with a force of 18 em
ployes and a branch for service men
at the Liberty Temple, and will cut out
all bureaus outside-of Portland.
Flnaaclal Aid Necessary
There had been established 11 other
bureaus In other important cities in
Oregon, which were under the super
vision of the Portland office. Many of
these will have to be dropped until such
time as congress makes provision for
putting the service on its former basis,
unless financial help comes from other
Effort is being made to have the va
rious cities maintain the service until
such time as congress makes the new
appropriation or until it Is certain that
the service is not to be continued. Eu
gene and Astoria have already signified
their Intention of keeping up their bu
reaus In this way.
It is also hoped that volunteer workers
may be secured to tide over the emer
gency. If" persons can be found who
will do the work for the time, arrange
ments will be made to give them all the
assistance .possible in -organizing and
conducting the bureau. sBy employing
a few persons on the dollar-a-year basis
so as to, secure for them the government i
franking privilege, it may be possible
to go on .with the work in the state on
a fairly extensive scale.
.... rorloaghs for Employes
Under present) plans, the employment
bureaus for soldiers, sailors and matinee
will not be abolished although they must
suffer .curtailment In the same way as
other bureaus left -unsupported by the
.filibustering tactics in congress. It is
expected that there will be volunteer
