the results of his findings before the
labor council In Portland. Mr. Pro-
man represents the National Associa

ment of Women and Girls.
The association has hnd an investi
gator In Salem for several days, ac
cording to Sir. Froman, and informa
tion has been gathered to the effect
that there are 15 or 20 Instances
where married women .with husbands
able to support them are employed
in stato offices. ' The next step to be
taken, said Mr. Froman, will be to
secure the appointment of a commit

act in conjunction with tho associa

London Feb. it. Premier Lloyd
George and Premier NitU are believed
to favor resumption of relations with
soviet Russia, although Premier
Millerand of France Js not Inclined to
agree to any immediate action, ac
cording to the Daily Mail. The ques
tion is called to attention by a
memorial "sent to Mr. Lloyd-George
by a number of military men and
others who during the post two years
have been in Russia on official busi
ness. The newspaper says thhr prob
lem mut be considered by the su
preme allied council at its sessions
which begin today. The Chronicle
maintains that "all candid minds
must recognise, that as no anti-bolshevik
crganiiation exists any longer,
soviet Russia is now Russia.'
"Do we want peace," it asks, "or
do we want to continue the blockade
with the risk of incurring the hos
tility of the Russian government, and
military reprisals aguinst the Letts,
Poles, Rumanians, India and Meso
potamia, at the same time depriving
the reset of the world ot the Russian
grain supply? Surely there is only
one answer peace, which would be
altogether better it it could be ob
tained on the proper terms."
Similiar views are taken by the Daily
News which says:
"By what right does a handful of
politicians condemn their democra'
cles to needless hardships and the de
mocracy ot Russia to haardships
fourfold triors acute by prohibiting a
natural and beneficial exchange of
