Movie Star Chosen
For Round-Up Queen
Pendleton. Ore., Aug. 21. Visit
ors at the Pendleton Round-Up this
year, September 19, 20, 21 and 22,
will have the opportunity to meet a
motion picture actress in person,
for Mary Duncan, renowned on both
stage and screen, has been chosen
queen of this yera's Round-Up.
Miss Duncan, a vivacious, auourn-
haired beauty, comes to Pendleton
to play a leading role in "Our Daily
Bread, a Fox Film corporation mo
tion picture which F. W. Murnau
will direct The picture will have
for its locale the wheatfields and
hills of Umatilla county.
A native of Virginia, Miss Duncan
attended Cornell University and left
college to go on the stage. She
made a phenomenal success In the
role of "Poppy," in the "Shanghai
Gesture." Largely on the merits of
this performance she was signed by
the Fox people for outstanding dra
matic roles. She appeared in Mur
nau's "Four Devils" and Frank Bor-
zage's "The River," and each time
scored as an outstanding motion
picture actress, her talent for the
screen equalling that for the stage.
Queen Mary will ride in all Round
Up parades and hold sway over the
western kingdom with its cowboys
and cowgirls. The honor of ruling
the Round-Up is a signal one and
last year went to Mabel Strickland,
world's champion cowgirl. The
Round-Up dynasty is made up of a
long list of attractive girls who have
been accorded this honor.

award in a wage dispute between
the Western railways and their
conductors and trainmen. It held
that the fact that employees of these
classes on eastern and southeastern
lines recently had "been granted an
increase was no reason why an ad
vance should be granted in western
territory, because road conductors
and trainmen in road service in the
west previously had been earning
6' to 7 per cent more than those
in the east and southeast, and De
cause, as the roads of the western
group were earning relatively much
smaller net returns than those of
the east and southeast they could
not afford to pay such an advance.
While refusing ah advance to con
ductors and trainmen in road serv
ice, the arbitration board awarded
an advance of 7H per cent to the
yardmen of the western lines.
The award was effective until
March 1, 1928, but in November,
1927, the conductors and trainmen
renewed their demand upon tre
western railways for advances. Be
cause of wage negotiations that
were pending between the western
railways and their locomotive en
gineers and nremen, negotiations
between the Conference Committee
of Managers and representatives of
the conductors and trainmen were
not begun until July 16. Meanwhile
the firemen secured an advance of
654 per cent by arbitration, and the
engineers accepted a settlement on
the same basis wfthout arbitration.
"The Conference Committee of
Managers was willing to give the
conductors and trainmen increases
equivalent to those received by the
engineers and firemen, but asked
for the elimination of certain rules
which are not in effect in any other
territory. These are rules arbitrar
ily restricting the use of more than
one locomotive on a train and also
the numbir of cart that may be
hauled In a train with two locomo
tives. They thus restrict the effi
ciency and economy that may be at
tained in operation.
"Desiring to effect an early and
satisfactory settlement the Confer
ence Committee of Managers on
August 1st after two weeks of ne
gotiation offered to grant the con
ductors and trainmen either an ad
vance of 6tt per cent in wages with
out any change in rules, or an ad
vance of 7tt per cent if they would
agree to elimination of the restric
tive rules in question. Either offer
would raise then- wage rates and
earnings above the highest in his
tory, that is the rates awarded by
the United States Railroad Labor
Board in 1920. The representatives
of the employees refused to accept
either of these propositions but In
sisted, as a minimum, upon the re
tention of the rules and an advance
ot TA per cent As previously stat
ed, the engineers and firemen al
ready have accepted 6H per cent
It is estimated that without any
change of rules, an Increase to the
conductors and trainmen of 6 per
cent would cost the western rail
ways $6,500,000 a year, while an in
crease of 7 per cent would cost
"Mediation between the two part
ies has been conducted by the Hon
orable John Williams, a member of
the United States Mediation Board.
Mediation having apparently failed.
the Conference Committee of Man
agers asked Mr. Williams to use his
good offices to bring about arbitra
tion of the matters till in dispute.
What this meant was simply that
there should be arbitration as to
whether the objectionable rules In
question should be eliminated and
the employees should be given an
advance of 7 per cent or the rules
should be allowed to stand and they
should be granted the same ad
vance as has been received by the
engineers and firemen.
"There has been no favorable
change In conditions on the west
ern railways since an arbitration
board held on June 25, 1927, that
their road service conductors and
trainmen were not entitled to any
advance in wages. The railways
of this territory are still' falling
far short of earning a fair return'
and are earning a relatively much
smaller return than those of east
ern or southeastern territory. The
Conference Committee of Managers
has offered the settlement It has
with the conductors and trainmen
because the engineers and firemen
of these lines already have secured
lnereases. It seems clear the con
ductors and trainmen are not en
titled to larger increases than those
received by the engineers and fire
men, but the Conference Committee
of Managers has even offered to
leave to arbitration the remaining

Preliminary work for the installa
tion of a new 1000 watt crystal con
trolled radio broadcasting set is un
derway at the Oregon State college
where KOAC will open this fall with
four times its former strength. Al
though the former set was 500 watt
strength, recent improvements have
made it possible to modulate 80 per
cent instead of 40 per cent of the
available power, thus doubling the
effective strength under the old rat
ings. NOTICE OF EQUALIZATION

THE RAILROADS PRESENT
J. W. Higgins, chairman of the
Conference Committee of Managers
of the Western Railways, today
made the following statement:
"The refusal of the Order gf Rail
way Conductors and the Brother
hood of Railroad Trainmen to arbi
trate certain differences between
them and the western railways cre
ates a situation of great concern to
the public. The Watson-Parker
Railway Labor act was passed by
Congress only two years ago to af
ford a peaceable means of settling
such differences. It was drafted by
representatives of all the railway
labor organizations and of a major
ity of the railways, and its passage
was urged by both of them. Per
sistence by the conductors and
trainmen in their refusal to arbi
trate would amount to a repudia
tion of this law.
"On June 25, 1927, an arbitration
board formed under the Watson
Parker Railway Labor act made an
