There Are More Than, 1000 People Who Labor at Tasks That Are Directly Connected
with the Industry, and More Than 5000 People Dependent Upon the Industry Here
There Has Been Much Growth During the Past Year In Little Over -Twenty Years
We Have Come to Employ About a Fifth of Our People in this Industry
It is not too much too say that
Salem has become the outstanding
automotive; Industry center of Ore-
gon. outside of Portland; and won
derful has' been its: growth; and
wonderful is its continued expan
sion. , ? ! 4 J i
Many people! here who are yet
young in; both :years and. feelings
remember well the first automo
bile in Salem, i It arrived only a
little over 20 years ago,. There
were no automobiles worth men
tioning in J900, west of New York,
and only a few there, of the lum
bering taxi I pattern that would
look very pdd today.
Only jut a j few years ago, all
the gasojijjife and oil delivered in.
Salem were taken around by one
man with 'his team of two old
horses- Now the four big oil com
panies operating here employ 78
men, and they, use many tank
trucks and cover a wide territory,
besides serving their Salem' cus
tomers. I : j : ' 'f
Orowthl, Throughout Industry-
The Slogan editor of The States
man a year ago made a resume of
the automotive industry of Salem.
He found '94 i private individuals
and firms in business, employing
449 peope. lie finds this year
110 suchj j individuals and con
cerns, and. they are employing 532
people. 1 1 ! j
Add toithese 12& or more n he
state highway department, shops
and testing laboratory.
Add the So to 75 or more in 'the
automobile and traffic depart
ments wofking under the secre
tary of state. , I " ;
Add to the 50 to 75 employees
working i'n, connection with the 96
stages coming into and going out
of the Salem Terminal station.
Add the 5 to. 15 county em
ployes repovttpg at Jthe Marion
county repair; shops. t,J "
Add tbtt 81; employees of the big
oil companies.: ,
Make a total of the above, and
you have! a jtotal of 903 people.
And that lsj not all.
There are more than 1.000 peo
ple in Salem, and coming In and
going out of Salem, and having
their homes here, or taking most
of their meals' here, who are em
ployed i one way or another in
the automotive industry in its var
ious phases. ;-
For instance, there may be add
ed to those mentioned above rihe
40, men who are connected With
the Willamette Valley Transfer
company, with headquarters ln-Sa?
If m, and making Portland and all
the valley towns on both side of
the river as far south as Kugene.
In the past' year they have added
a new route, to Lebanon. They
have 30 freight trucks, mostly
mammoth' freight haulers, and:-10
trailers.' In their offices and
freight house on Front street in
Salem they employ on an average
about 10 people. .
The Valley Packing company,
the very successful meat packing
concern here, makes many of Its
deliveries with 7 trucks and lour
salesmen's cars. i rf ;
The wholesale grocery concern,
the Willamette Grocery company,
uses a number of trucks in making
deliveries all over the valley.;?
AU of the canneries and "fruit
handling concerns employ automo
biles and trucks in carrying on
their work. i S ' 1
; The state institutions all tern
ploy automobiles and trucks, J
There are numerous firmajand
persons that have not been listed
above employing autos and trjicks
for deliveries and in various other
ways; numerous taxis . '
And, in short, 1000 is too! low
an estimate of the number. of;peo
pje employed in and about Balem
in the automotive industry. 'You
could add all. the bakeries t the
list,and- all -.the gravel; concerns,
with many, autos and trucks-;' and
the paper rjiiill, using numerous
trucks in pulp wood delivers and
in other ways- The local reader
can recall many others. 3
.Jlillion and Half and Mom
4 Count the wages of all "these
people and the earnings of the pro
prietors figured as wages, at' $5 a
day. That is conservative,-'; for
many schedules of the high class
mechanics and others run much
higher. Multiply this $5000$ day
by the 312 working days In the
year, and i you have over $l-i560,-
000 a year. : " I ' 5
That is a more than conserva
tive .figure for the direct income
of Salem from the automotive in
dustry for a year, on the present
1-asisJ 1 ' !l
And the indirect benefits are
many; they aref felt in a thousand
wa'ys4 .- ,y ;'
And the Industry is growing ip
all its branches! jand will continue
to grow throughout the years.
with the increasing length of pav
ed highways centering in Salem;
with the growth jof population and
business in every direction!.
Over 5000 Peo'ple Represented "
These more '- than 1000 people
make up "with their families.: coun
ting five for eafch worker or man
ager or ; proprietor, more . than
5000 of the population of Salem
and its immediate suburbs say a
fifth; of our ;tqtal population,
counting what) Is termed in the
east our metropolitan district, in
cluding our Immediate suburbs,
such as West Salem and districts
north, south arid east outside of
our corporate limits. j
Take away thbse over 5000 peo
ple, and Salem jvould feel the loss
keenly. Put.ljem together In a
city by themsejvlfes, and they would
make a' lively irid progressive city,
i A Creditable Showing ;
The automotive industry of Sa
lem ; makes a f creditable showing
for itself. The' working forces aie
competent. They can repair or
rebuild any carfof any make. They
can make the most delicate adjust
ments. . They I keep on hand parts
and supplies covering the whqle

to the largestf o-nd finest car, nd
