THE WAY OF SALVATION
FOR a year past the energies of a considerable portion
of the population have been spent in trying to evade
work and in spending all or more than they received.
: The senate has talked, probed and spent. - :
Capital has profiteered, speculated and spent.
Labor has shirked, "vacationed" and spent.
We cannot save by profligate waste,
we produce more and waste less.
We cannot produce more by talking, speculating and
striking. i - -,
. We cannot sow by nroflveate waste.
- Action must replace noise, saving replace spending, and
lnaustry replace idleness. ; i
We cannot reduce the high cost of living, due primarily
to shortage in supplies, unless we relieve the shortage and
that can only be done by work and thrift. , ; ;
'We cannot stabilize conditions until we have peace
and the senate must cease playing politics and go to work.
Capital must be withdrawn from speculation and "go
to work in needed industry - - ;
Labor must cease striking and go to-work to increase
We must work more.

MM INJURED Iff
BEING RESTORED TO
Many workmen injured in Oregon
industries are being restored to their
normal capabilities through medical
aid provided under the provision of
the workmen's compensation act, ac
cording to members of the state n-,
dustrial accident commission' who
cite numerous instances of the spleni
did results .obtained through the
physical rehabilitation of injured
w orkmen. ; '
The case of W. W. Hiohel of Po:
land, injured in October while eitit
ployed in & Portland Shipyard, Is
cited by the commission. Ilichel, who
is'61 years of age, suffered a brokin
wrist which rendered 'him s practical
ly helpless. After the 'doctor, had apt
the fractured bones and they wefe
healed the hand was so stiff that He
could not close his fingers. He h4d
no gripping; power nnd 'was vety:
much discouraged when the commis
sion sent him ;to a physician for phy
siotherapy treatments. j
"After receiving five treatments!'
the aommjssioners explain, "the
function in his hand waa. fully re
stored so he could use his wrist and
reported that he was able to return
to work. He .was Immensely pleased
with the results obtained. - -;
Another ease which has just been
completed by the commission was
that of a man who was injured while
employed in the southern part of the
state. . ; ,.
His hand also was stiff so he could
not close his fingers, and the mus
cles had begun to atrophy from non-use..-
' '' ..- -. - i
...s he had .been disabled four or
five months, (lie commission brought
him to Salem for special physiorherav
py treatments,' and he regained the
full use of his hand, returning home
a much happier man than when he,
came here. '
Not a week passes but what the
commission provides physiotherapy
treatment for injured workmen, and
the results beitig obtained are very
encouraging. This work is being done
under the provisions of the compen
sation law providing for rehabilita
tion of the victims of industrial accidents.
Lessening Numls'i' of Cripples
Theso results are lessening the
number of permanent criimles, nnd
at the same time are reducing the
amount ot compensation that other
wise would be awarded for-permanent
If the special session of the legis
lature enacts into law the recommen
dations of the committee which was
appointed to pass on the question of
increasing the compensation bone
fits, tho commission will then be au
thorized to take up the work of vo-1
cational rehabilitation of injured
workmen In addition to .the physical
rehabilitation whioh is now being
done. .. . -
This will mean means will be pro
vided for reestablishing permanently
Injured workmen in some line of in
dustry where they can' make a living
for themselves and families, and not
be dependents upon society.
