Opposition to Vacation of
Street to be Withdrawn
If Work is Started
Construction Desired Here
To Provide Jobs, is
Reason for Offer
'Possibility that construction of
tbo addition to- the Oregon Pulp
and Paper, mill on Trade street
may start soon 'is seen -in the an
nouncement by Dan J; Pry, Jr.,
that if the company will start
construction within 90 days the
Fry interests will withdraw all
opposition to the vacation of the
portion of Trade strlet in favor
of the paper company. At pres
ent the matter is in suspense
pending trial of the suit of the
paper company to quiet title to
the street area.
Sirs. Dan Fry, Sr., as title
owner of the warehouse property
at Trade and Front streets, filed
an answer in opposition to the
company's . aetion. When the
building congress and the city
council pressed the company re
cently to begin construction in
accordance with the understand
ing when the vacation ordinance
was passed, the failure to clear
the title was cited as one of the
reasons why construction could
not start at once. With the de
cision of the Fry interests to
withdraw opposition in the pend
ing suit, the matter goes square
ly up to the paper company on
whether it will proceed imme
diately or not.
Will not Contest
If Work Started
' "We do not want to appear in
the position of obstructionists.
said Dan Fry, Jr., Friday. "If
the company will start work In
90 days we will not contest its
effort to clear the title to the
street. It was the agreement
and understanding when the mat
ter was pending before the coun
cil that the company would start
Immediately to build this add!
tlon, and pne reason urged was

the operation of the new unit
would provide more jobs for Sa
lem workmen. Now the company
has the opportunity to make good
on its promises."

New Telephone Franchise
Plan Offered to Council
Proposal that a new 20-year
franchise be granted te the Pa
cific Telephone and Telegraph
company here was made by re
presentatives of that group to the
ordinance committee of the city
eonncll at an informal conference
held here Friday morning.
The proposed franchise would
replace the S 0-year franchise now
held by the eompany, a franchise
to expire In tbe spring of 1934.
Under the franchise proposed by
Vice-President Dodge ot the Port
land office and H. V. Collins, dis
trict manager here, a gross pay
ment of two per cent on tele
phone Income would be paid- to
the city. This would be In lieu
ot any tax on Income or license
The proposal comes as a coun
ter suggestion to the two per cent
tax proposed on all utility -incomes
in the city in an ordinance
now pending before the council.
Collins stated that the present
gross revenue of the eompany
here was 8225.000 aid that the
proposed franchise would net the
city 14500. Under existing ar
rangements the city receives
$59e license payment annually
and approximately $1400 of free
telephone service for the fire, po
lice and other city departments.

emergency road projects during"
the present week will go off shift

others of the more than COO me
who have registered at the U. 9L
employment office, according te
Agent Sim Phillips. The shifts
will alternate weekly.
When the new shift goes oa
next Monday, 12 more men wiH
be employed than durlnr the.

county will be Increased from 23

Prospects, Phillips yesterday re
ported, are that several more
shifts will be instituted witbia
the near future.
Had the rains not forced the
men employed this week to stop
work on several occasions, their
earnings would have amounted
on state Jobs to $18 apiece. Ia
addition to cutting down their
Income, the rains caused the me
discomfort because few of these
possessed suitable clothing.
None of those sent to work
from the employment office were
fired from their Jobs for inceat
petency. "Those men want work
and are willing to work hard
when they get It," Phillips declared.
