Walter D. Smith, field officer of
the 'Loyal' Legion of Loggers and
Lumbermen, and a nvmbcr "r the
board of directors of that associa
tion. is In Salem with a vi.w to the
reorganization of the employes at
the Spaulding mill as a Loyal legion
The Loyal legion is a cooperate e
association of employers and em
ployes in the lopeinu and lumbering
Industry of the three states of Ore
gon. Washington and Idaho. It came
into existence during the war as a
war measure, and worked out s suc
cessfully that, at the signing of the
armistice, it was reorganized on a
peace basis, end entirely taken out
of government control. During th
last year it has had a beneficent ef
fect in stabilizine and standardizing
the industry-with which it is affil
iated. It has grown rapidly in mem
bership, until it now numbers be
tween 30.0C0 and 4 0.000 employes
and some 4 00 operators. The
Charles K. Spanldine Logging com
pany It now an affiliated company.
Discontent 1 Tartre
The object of the Loyal legion Is
to weed out those elements in in
dustry which make for discontent,
and lead Into strikes and lockouts.
It aims at bringing employer and.em-
ploye Into closer harmony and co
operation, giving the employe a
share in the control of the plant, in
sofar as it affects himself, his job.
and his working condition.
It Is committed to the policy of
the eight-hour day, of maximum ef
ficiency and , just and reasonable
compensation. It strikes at the roots
of what Is called radicalism, by re
moving the causes therefor.
The organization has enjoyed rap
id progress during the tlrst year
of its existence.
It has been instrumental, in the
application of its principles. In pre
venting any number of incipient
It has secured several raises In the
minimum wages paid to the workers
In the Industry.
Both employers and employes whn
have had experience with the orga
nlzation. where it has functioned ac
cording to tvpe, express themselves
as well satisfied with the results.

to function as was intended. Since
that time, all the Spaulding com
parry's operations have joined the or
ganization. that at Kewberg being a
particularly strong local, practically
100 per cent. It Is Mr. Smith's hope
and expectation that organization of
the Salem local will be effected with
in a day or two.
As showing one of the fundamen
tal policies of the Loyal legion, th-
principle of the eight hour working
day. the following copy of a letter
of recent date from E. If. Polleys.
president of the Polleys Lmber com
pany of Missoula. Mont., to P. L
Abbey, secretary-manager of the le
gion at Portland, is of Interest:
"Replying to your letter of ;De
cemJber 23 rclatire to the 4-L orga
nization in M'ontana.
"I am somewhat surprised at your
letter saying that a number of Mon
tana operators indicate a desire to
take In the 4-L's. As president of
the Montana association I have never
heard this expressed, and personally.
so far as the Polleys Lumber com
pany is concerned, we would not en
tertain a proposition of this kind.
The 4-Ls is absolutely an eight-hour
proposition, which we never have
believed In and do not now believe
in. What this country needs, both
for its labor and for Its manufactur
ers, is longer hours and more pro
duction. If we ever expect to get
away from the high cost of living."
