Seattle Stockholders Would Wind

Seattlo attorney was In Rend last

who In 1919 purchased stock In tho

who Invested to tho tuno ot $1,000,
sot forth that thero were no sheop,
nnd that virtually tho solo assets ot

Hani Competition I'rotn Koutli Anil
AVIthln Western Territory Noted,
Hut Kfflclcncy Can Maintain 8
Hour J Ins Is, Says llellenlus.
No likelihood of any attempt to
lengthen the working day now In
force at tho IJend milts Is soon by
J. E. Hellerrius, field officer for the
Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lum
bermen, here for several days
In the course of one of his
regular visits In this district.
Hcllenlus mentioned the effort be
ing made at other points, and of
the notice which has been given by
tho Dolse-Payette Lumber Co. of its
Intention to withdraw from tho Four
L organization and of reopening Its
mill on a 10 hour basis, but admitted
no probability of any such happen
ing here. The Four-L's, ho pointed
out, has as one of its fundamental
principles, the eight hour day, and
this, he said, will bo strictly ad
hered to.
Economic Factors HcTlewed
"Agitation for a nlno or 10 hour
day Is becoming very active in the
pine producing territory," Hellcnlus
said. As economic factors bearing1
on a change In the working hours
In the lumber Industry, he recog
nizes the difficult competition which
tho northwest Is forced to meet In
selling against southern pine pro-
I duced by lower paid, longer worked
labor, and with It the fact that less
than 30 per cent of members of the
Western Pino Manufacturers' asso
ciation are now on an eight hour
basis or affiliated with the Four-L's.
"We must admit," he said, "tho pres
sure which is being brought to boar
on this 30 per cent by the others la
tho west."
Efficiency Solution
That thero are other means ot
meeting this competition than by in
creasing working hours Is tho con
tention ot the Loyal Legion of Log
gers and Lumbermen, Hellenlus em
phasized. "Real cooperation In the
plant, for instance, Increasing effi
ciency and production, for instance,
elimination of overlapping ot labor
and authority, in short an honest ef
fort to make the eight hour day so
successful and satisfactory that no
ono shall feel Inclined to change it,
would be effective," ho said.
He declared that It Is his observa
tion as field officer of the Four-L's
that on a number of theso points
there has been actual failure.
Miss Evn Coniegys Transferred To
Denton County, O. A. C. Exten
sion Worker Announces.
Announcement that Deschutes
county wltl not .have the services ot
a home demonstration agent after
March 15, was made Tuesday by
Miss Jessie D. McComb, head ot the
homo demonstration work at O. A. C.
Miss Eva Coraegys, who has been
located horo for soveral months, will
bo transferred to Renton county.
The fact that Denton county has
made an appropriation for a share ot
tho expense of conducting this work
was given as the reason for tho trans
fer. Tho Deschutes county court
has never boon requested to make
an appropriation.
Tho Infusorial earth found In the
vicinity of Lower Urldgo Is woll
adapted to use us packing material
for the flretess cookor, reported Miss
Evu Comegys, county demonstrator,
who used this substance lu making a
cookor at tho homo' of Mrs. Rod Fos

tor makes It ot particular value for
this purpose.
