Farms, Businesses
In Labor Survey
With Oregon's skilled labor in
ventory well under way, local com
mittees are turning their attention
to farms, small business and other
concerns in an effort to enlist every
possible experienced worker for de
fense industries.
Under the direction of the Board
for the Mobilization of Labor, cen
tral registration points are being set
up in communities all over the state.
City or county offices, fire stations,
chambers of commerce, hiring halls
and similar places are being desig
nated by the local committees nam
ed by Governor Charles Sprague.
In Morrow county complete infor
mation can be secured through the
local committee, including E. Harvey
Miller, chairman; P. W. Mahoney,
secretary; C. J. D. Bauman, C. D.
Conrad, L. H. Frederickson, H. A.
Cohn, Jasper V. Crawford.
While early reports from blanks
filled out by Oregon's larger em
ployers have not yet been tabulated,
early indications are that thousands
of skilled workers have registered
their trades with the board. In banks
and hotels, factories and mills, in
surance offices and department
stores have been found many men
who have not worked at their pri
mary trades for years.
Although most of the registrants
are mehanics, electricians or carpen
ters all necessary trades many
quite unusual workers have been
brought to light by the inventory
In one packing plant in a valley
town were found asbestos workers,
pipe calkers, hoisting and refriger
ating engineers, ship joiners, acety
lene welders and a single-spindle
drill press operator.
Last week the survey was ex
tended to city, county and state
employes through meetings in Port
land, Salem and other towns. With
this third and final step reaching
uncovered employes and the self
employed, the labor mobilization
board hopes to have a comprehen
sive picture of the skilled labor res
ervoir available for defense indus
tries in any emergency that n ay
arise in this area.
It has been estimated that state

vehicle taxes amount to proxim
