CHICAGO, 111., Jan. 20. The ex
ecutlvo council of tho American fed
eration of teachers, following, action
taken at tho recent conventional tho
organization held in St. Paul;' Is
launching a natlon-wldo campaign for
better tenure legislation for teach
ers. Btatb legislatures will bo asked
to.romcdy existing" conditions rela
tive to tbo employment and reten
tion of teachers, who bellevo that
InJuBtlco lies In tho prevailing sys
tem. Tbo American federation of
teachers authorities assert that rem
edial legislation will go far towards
raising tho standard of the teach
ing profession, Inasmuch as it will
obviato arbitrary dismissal of com
potont toachors by autocratic boards
"In asking for .decent tenuro leg
islation," said Charles D. Sttllraan,
president of tho American Federation
of Teachers, at Chicago headquart
ers, "our organization Ja not anima
ted by any desire, tp-protoct the In-,
efficient teacher.. In fact, the Ameri
can Federation of Teachers Is; inter
ested in providing the machinery -by
means of which incompetent teach;
ers may bo removed from, the school
system. Far from protecting Jn-.
competency, tbo American, Federation
of Teachers has gone on-record-in-a
most revolutionary measuro for the
protection of the public schools, by
demanding for its organization pro
fessional training as a pre-requlslte
for the chartering of a local."
President Stillman said tbe Ameri
can Federation of Teachers maintains
that tenure should be permanent dur
ing efficiency after tho lapse of tbe
probationary period, which should
not exceed throo years; that all dis
missals, both during and after pro
bation,, must bo tor causes definite
ly embodied In tho educational law,
such as gross insubordination, Inef
ficiency and conduct unbecoming a
teacher, and that after tho probation
period dismissal for any cause, in
cluding inotflcloncy, shall bo author
ized only by an Impartial trial board.
Appeal from tho decision of a trial
board which may bo mado to tbo
civil courts would also bo allowed .
Tbe federation officials say they
seo a cultural w'ago for teach ors and
explain that this Is a wagOfWhlch.
will enable thenv to llvo according
10 me requirements oi tneir position
toprovldo for such hazards ofllfi
as Illness and old age, to provide for
culture, recreation and professional
improvement, and to maintain. self
Bcsldo demanding certain working
conditions, they also assert tho right
as teachers to participate In the ad
ministration of the schools and est
tabllsh tbo principle that tho teachers
aro entitled to tho rights of free ex
pression and tbo right to organize
and to affiliate with such groups as
they find exppaicnt and deem social

Payrolls and Prosperity
Oregon needs more and larger payrolls. Prosperity Is a concrete condition,
not an abstract thought. It is created by tho opportunity for work, tho Investment
of money In new and enlargement of old projects, tho development of .trade, the
meeting of producer and consumer, tho exchango of labor for purchasing power.
Tho Paclflo Telephone and Telegraph Company, representing a payroll of
approximately 13,000,000 por year in Oregon, bW reached a point beyond which It
cannot go with its present lncomo. It has asked for higher rates which will enable
It to, maintain its service, moot Its payroll obligations and earn a roasonablo return
upon Its investment In Oregon. If it obtains this It can carry on its construction
program, offer moro work in Oregon, enlarge its payrolls and tako Its proper part
in tho progress of this state. If It cannot secure adequate ratos Is must limit its
expansion In ovory way, abandon Its plans for extensions and lay off Its construc
The rates asked for will not work a hardship upon any individual; thoy repre
sent but a small Increase per station over present ratos, but in tho aggregate would
t . , -
permit the telephone company to continue to fully sorvo tho public, carry out its
plans for tbo development of Oregon, and do its part in creating and maintaining
tho prosperity which is essential to this state
Adoquato service Is dependent upon adequato rates.
