"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 get better. 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 received. 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 ly. - 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. ' ''" According to AEbin E.
