early in the week apparently blown
"Fair, northerly .- winds," was the
weather prediction for today.- and the
prediction proved correct. J Jhe wind
was nippy, and there was no suffering
from the heat. i
Sunday the mercury made a season's
record of 95. Monday it climbed to 91,
but for the benefit of Fourth of July
celebrants it dropped to 82 degrees
Tuesday, fulfilling Forecaster Wells'
prediction that the wave would not
last more than two or three days. To
day was even cooler and more com
fortable than Tuesday. At 5 this
morning the temperature was 54. as
compared to 60 at 5 o'clock Tuesday.
This difference had been cut down at
10 o clock, however, when the reading
was 64, as compared to 66.
Relief also came to Eastern Oreeon.
Washington and Southern Idaho. While
the weather in those sections still was
hotter' than normal, no such maximum
temperatures as were recorded Mon
day were reported. Tuesday. Baker's
maximum was 88, and 98 was the high

TO EMPLOYES MEMBERS OF FEDERATED SHOP
TJie management of these railway companies requests
that striking employes j affiliated with the federated
shop crafts, give earnest consideration to thefolloving
quotation from statement by Chairmhn Hooper of the
United States Railroad Labor Board: ;
: - " l ' - -
"Regardless of any question of the right of men ito
strike, the men who take the strikers' places are merely
- accepting the wages and working conditions prescribed
by a government tribunal and are performing a public r
service.. They are not accepting the wages and working
conditions which an employer, is trying to impose."
t For this reason public sentiment and full government - ,
tal power will protect' the: men s who remain t in their
positions and new. men who may come in.", , t " -
It is the wish of the management that the harmonious
relations which have in the past existed between these
companies and their employes may continue, and in or
der to protecj the interests of , employes who are now on
f strike, Such employes' are: hereby advised that all who
report for duty;on or before Wednesday, July 5th, 1922,
will be returned to service in their former positions and
. with seniority rights unimpaired. Those who fail to re
turn ofl br before Wednesday, July 5th, 1922, will lose"
their seniority and if re-employed rank as new men, and:
their seniority- will date frolri the time of their re-
- employment. ." 'V .;";v:7 1 . -
