Officials said .that ' reports from

Increase the number of men em
ployed under the emergency pro
gram to more than 1800.
Reports from Multnbmah coun
ty show that 3S7 laborers are now
at work there under the emergen
cy program. - Douglas county,
which - has provided the second
largest number of jobs, has 76
men employed. Clackamas connty
has provided work for 50. Grant

IVasco 41.
Roy Klein, state highway en
gineer, in a report to Governor
Meier, declared that the emergen
cy employment program is now a
month ahead of last year.
"Although many Jobs already
hare been made a t a i 1 a b le,"
Klein's report read, "the number
o men employed will be increas
ed gradually as the winter
months progress."
Betterment Work
Is Done Principally
Klein declared that the oper
ations under the emergency pro
gram hare thus far been devoted
principally to betterment projects.
The regular Lighway crews have
taken care of the patrol mainten
ance. These betterments have in
eluded clearing highways, widen?
ing operations, s t r a 1 g h tening
carves and eliminating difficult
and dangerous grades.
Salaries for men employed in
emergency jobs has averaged
37 cents an hour. In some parts
of the state the rotative policy
has been adopted, with the result
more than 1141 men actually
have been employed. The rotation
plan Is a matter wholly in the
hands of the county courts.
.Klein declared that where mea
have been required for emergen
cy work, the counties have been
allowed to furnish the workers
through their local committees.
This plan has operated very suc
cessfully, officials said.
In addition to emergency work,
the state highways department is
now employing more than 500
men. The records show that 104
crews are employed on regular
highway maintenance work.

At this election, Grand Island

Island: it has been included in the
