Wages in Sick Industries J J
THE FoBr-L news service buHetia contains the following
item: . f. ?-'K " .'
"While a few non-L. -companies hay eut wages to ridiculously
low levels, there is conviction on the part, of leading lumbermen.
reenlt only in, relativelx lower returns, not only for lumbej worker
tjat for itt WneeTeJ: mataB.-' . i - .- . V i
It is true that some mills have reduced wages from $ 3.40
par day dotm to and hare heard even below that
figure. That seaman, hopelessly
that is .better than nothing, so many will accept it until times
This throws into the foregroun4 the whole wage ques
tion. Cutting the wages of the sawmill workers may let mills
survive. It may ultimately have
demand for lumber. In the meantime it pauperizes the werk-
men and cuts down the number of dollars finding their way
into the storekeeper's till, A wage eut of a dollar a day means
a lot of retrenchment is necessary in the mill towns.
Strangely enough, wage-cutting does not always solve
the problem in the sick industries. In the textile trades,
where distress has been prevalent for some years wages
have been cut and cut. Still the
cause the slump in demand was not due so much to price as to
other causes. With notoriously low wage scales the cotton
and woolen mills struggle along painfully, some of them with
out hope. The solution is elimination of high cost producers,
and for mills just to cut wages and all continue to produce
does not necessarily sohre the problem. If the lower prices
will stimulate demand then perhaps all may continue to op
erate. But it represents a social maladjustment for less than
living wages to be paid in great industries like lumbering and
textile manufacture while other industries operate with
wages at high levels. So far as the worker is concerned his
labor may be equally difficult or equally important in one in
dustry as another; yet there is a wide disparity in the wages
What is needed we believe is a lowering of wages in some
of the high plateau industries and a raising of wages down
la the valley industries. But who is going to undertake the
job of leveling? Ruthless economic law is the only thing so
far relied on in the capitalistic economy; but It Is a poor tool
in a highly complex industrial society just as poor a tool
as ruthless competitipn among industries themselves.
Laying Out a Broad Program
THE Statesman has for some time contended that the out
door advertising signs, or ''billboards'' to use the corn-;
mon term, are not an individual problem, bat part of the gen
eral problem of highway beautification. We note that the
legislative .committee of the A.AJL is now about to launch;
a survey of highway conditions preliminary to formulating a
program for highway beautification. r . '
Their studies ana the program to -follow have three ob
jectives: First, to 'determine-how ail advertising signs from
the big panels to the little "snipe" signs can be regulated so
as to. protect the beauty of the road and prevent hazard. Sec
ond, to regulate or clean up junk yards inch as dump heaps,
automobile graveyards, rural rains, etc. Third, to develop
plans for real highway beautification.
This last is surely an important point We have slashed
through hills, thrown heaps of earth across ravines and de
signed our highways fox speed and safety with scant regard
for beauty. What a vast field there is for the beautifying of
the roadsides. In eastern Oregon a few years ago some vali
ant souls set out locust trees along the Columbia river high
way. Some have Hied, but many have liyed. In the course of
years with continued care they will make a shady avenue in
stead of a strip across a furnace, Nature does much in west
ern Oregon to heal the wounds our roadbnDders make. But
the hand of man directed by a landscape rtist can help na
ture do the work more rapidly and probably more attractive
The A.A.A. is going at the problem in a constructive and
scientific way. Instead of starting out to destroy by hitting
blindly at the billboards, it is endeavoring to develop a broad
policy which when completed should receive the co-operation
of outdoor advertisers, women's clubs, proprietors of road
stands, and the motoring public. ,
' Preparing for Armageddon
1 YVER a decade ago was fought the "war to end war." So
J we hqped and so we labored. Since tben no general con
flict has involved the nations, but fighting has been in pro
gress in some portion of the globe continuously. Statesmen
and churchmen have been devoting themselves toward -the
working out of formulas which may iniarante neace. The
Kellogg pact outlawed war. Locarno was treaty guarantee
ing the peace or Europe. Geneva, Paris, Washington, Lon
don, me Hague have been the
solve war problems, past or prospective.
Yet the world assiduously prepares for war. Backs break
ing under the burden of , obligations for uaat wars, taxes are
piled on to finance preparedness for future conflicts. Vastly
more is being expended for war preparations now than prior
to the war. The cost of the military, establishment of the na
tions was $3,180,200,000 in 1926, which was three-quarters of
a billion more than in 1915. Viewed from this angle; the "war
to end war" was cot much of a financial success. ' ''"

Faith said nothing. Noll flung
into an insanity of words. He

close to thirty years of the sea.
He accused her of unnamable
