o Strike Order
o License No. 1
o Less Road Money
By A. L. LINDBECK
Salem Common carriers operat
ing in Oregon must serve union and
non-union patrons alike, Utilities
Commissioner N. G. Wallace ruled in
an order this week requiring two
truck lines to deliver freight to a
Salem restaurant which was being
picketed by the Culinary Workers
Drivers for the truck lines had
refused to pass the picket lines of
the affiliate union. Commissioner
Wallace declared that the carriers
had no right to recognize picket lines
where no strike or riot conditions
existed and the safety of the drivers
had not been menaced.
The order of the utilities commis
sioner is expected to have far reach
ing results and probably to result in
a "showdown" as between the forces
of organized labor and constituted
authority in Oregon.
While Governor Martin refused to
comment on the order or to indicate
what his attitude might be in the
event the carriers refuse to obey the
utility commissioner's order he has
often expressed the opinion that all
men should be protected in their
right to work and that he stood
ready to throw the entire force of
the state back of any attempt to pre
serve law and order.
Unless the Culinary Workers lift
their ban as applied to delivery of
freight a fight to the finish between
the state as represented by its duly
elected and appointed officials and
organized labor is predicted.
The latest in old age pension pro
posals comes from Elbert Eastman,
Portland attorney, who is sponsoring
a measure designated as the "Citi
zens Retirement Annuity Bill." Un
der its terms all Oregon residents
over the age of 65 years would be
paid annuities to a maximum of $100
a month, all of which must he ex
pended. The annuity or pension
would be financed by a two per cent
transactions tax. Any surplus after
paying the annuities would go into
the Irreducible School fund.

The State Forestry Board has ap
proved plans for the purchase of five
acres of land near the state highway
shops, just east of Salem and the
construction of a building lor use as
headquarters for the forestry depart
ment. The building, a WPA project,
will cost $30,100 with the forestry
department supplying the materials
and WPA the labor.
Because of curtailment of federal
grants to the states Oregon's 1938
highway program will of necessity
be materially reduced below that of
the current year, according to R. H
Baldock, state highway engineer.
Much federal match money will also
be lost to Oregon because of lack of
state funds available for new con'
struction, Baldock said. Baldock es
timates that only $5,000,000 will be
available for new highway work in
Oregon next year including federal
Fears that the opposition of east
ern Congressmen might deprive
Oregon of many of its CCC camps
are entertained by J. W. Ferguson,
state forester. Eastern Congress
men, Ferguson explained, object to
sending boys from their states into
the west. There are now approxi
mately 1800 boys in CCC camps vuv
der state supervision in Oregon,
many of the units coming from east
ern and southern states.

Admitting that the jury system as

sociate justice of the state supreme
court told the Salem chamber of

that must be paid for the mainten
