In speaking of tho 'Klamath Pol

local employers, Mr. Call said: "I
oppose they had the right to atgn
that sort of a proposition If they saw
fit, at least we do not deny them the
right. Hut wo do reserve for our
selves the right to question the wis
dom of such a movement. We re
serve that right because the workers
re affected much a the employ
ers. As a matter offset the 'open
hop' really means non-union shop.

of tho northwx-st. from tho tlmo of I
tho clil West Coast Shlngloweaers'
union up to thu present dnto. Ho
pointed out that thu pollclss of thu
tlmberworker are In thu hands of
Its membership, that alt of Its laws
are adopted through 'vote of tho
membership, thut Its officers are
elected yearly In the same mannor.
that all of its officers and organizers
re men who have been taken from
the ranks of the workers, and that
they must be men of wide experience
In thn Industry.
He explained that the constitution
provides for -the Initiative, referend
um and recall, thereby making the
organisation thoroughly democratic.
He compared working conditions and
wages In communities where the tlm
berworkers are organised and where
they are not, stating that in Montana,
Washington, Oregon and Idaho,
wherever there are union organisa
tions that the wages are( higher and
the conditions better than where
there Is no organisation. He stated
that through the uso of "contract"
add "bonus!' systems that thoro was
gravo dangor that tho olght-hour day
would bo broken down.
Organizer Phillip Holdon was tho
Inst spoakar and ho hnd tho follow
ing subject: "Why thn Workers In
tho Tlmbor Industry Should Organ
ize," Ho stated that tho mattor of
retaining tho olght-hour day and
prosont working conditions, was a
matter for tho workers thomsetvos to
decldo, that tho responsibility rosted
wholly with thorn. Ho stated that
tho organization coud do nothing
without tho support and co-operation
of all workers In the Industry, that
organisation among tho workers waa
the keynote of the whole situation,
he closed by delivering strong ap
peal for membership.
