Mill Workers
Out on Strike
Several Salem woodworking
plants were among 40 in the
state, involving about 1000 em
ployes, that were closed Tues
day in a union-management ar
gument over wages.
The Salem plants included
Oregon Sash & Door, Salem
Willamette Supply and the mill
working plan of Keith Brown
Building Supply, Reinholdt &
Lewis were not closed although
it is a union operation.
The Millmen's union is ask
ing a wage increase of 1714
cents an hour above the present
top scale of $1.77 "i. They offer
the argument that they alone
of the building trades have not
had a pay increase, and want
a new contract to replace the old
one that expired March 1.
No pickets have been post
ed at the idle Salem plants.
J M. Scudder, attorney for the
Woodwork Employers' associa
tion, said all of the association
planing mills would close be
cause the AFL Millmen's union
struck the Cassady Fixture
Works in Portland.

the U.S. civilian defense office
for maintaining a large number
of nurses aides and for having
the largest number of volunteer
hours, per capita. In that period
there were 373 nurses aides,
giving 66,919 hours of volun
teer service.
Since 1942, some 1500 per

County Budget
(continued from page I)
It was plain from discussion
had that it is the intention of the
committee to slash enough to
come within the 6 percent limit
and not have a surplus which
would have to go before the peo
pie to vote upon.
3255,000 Increase
The budget as it came up to
the committee showed requests
about $255,000 in excess of last
year's budget or $243,844 out of
balance as to the 6 percent Urn
it. This is alleviated somewhat
by legislative action in road mat
ters which take up as an $85,000
slack or which throws it actually
out of balance $158,844 and
committee members showed de
termination to lop off this am
ount in small or large bits as
they may be found to get inside
the limit.
The committee Is expected to
be in session two or three days
with a considerable number of
hearings already set.
