British Labor Ministry Gives

Suffering is Looming.

LONDON, Nov. 12. (By Webb .Mil
ler, U. P. Bluff Correspondent.)
Strikes that have Blackened business
In 'Europe have left a million and a
half workeri Idle. The exam figured
are not obtainable, but the Ilrlllah la
, bor ministry put the number of unem
ployed at a million nnd a tin If, u.i
conservative estimate. Thus fur there
lias been no Buffeting. The weather
has beon mild. Hut there la wcry
over prospects for- the winter.
The government : urging thul the
unions admit unskilled labor to th.ir
ranks, espccall In -he building trodes
which tho government plana lo Pse
this winter In conduction worl;
ir.slimatea of unemployment In
Britain are placed at 4o3,ooo. Oer
nmny's Idle army Is estimated at 400,
000, Of these, many ure receiving
government rations, Strikes huve been
frequent In Germany but much of the
unemployment has been Involuntary.
Prance has about 200,000 unemployed.
There are no estimates from Italy,
Austria or .Central Europe, but the
conditions aro.kn'uwn to be bad there.
Italy has been plied upon by bolHbevki
and anarchists, and the government is
now planning on giving labor a voice
in the control of industry. This Is ex
pected to end much discontent, prices
are advancing- In Italy and the gov
ernment has announced that new tax
es will cause a rise In the price of
bread and other commodities,
Tho Scandinavian countries have
less unemployment than ait)' other
part of Europe. ;The average there Is
believed to be only Iwq per cent of the
labor population.
Increasing the acreugo of the Cma

deputy forest supervisor. The order

of agriculture. The two forests will

The Umatilla forest has an area of
068, 20 acres while that of the Wenaha
Is 79.1,000 acres, making a total of I.
3J9.S20 acres, one of the largest for
ests In the state. Potir rangers are
employed on the Umatilla and six on
the Wenaha.
According to Mr. l.tuttcluir. the two
present units are both smaller than the
average national forest and though
they do not adjoin, their general char
acteristics and activities are similar.
The consolidation. In l!r. Boucher's
opinion, will mean a material saving
in the cost of administration.
