SAYS INCREASE FROM 8 HOURS NOT PROBABLE SITUATION VIEWED BY FOUR L. MAN PRESSURE IS SEVERE 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.
