IJVING WAGES FOR TEACHERS
Editor Journal To save our public
school system from demoralisation

a year for a minimum, and after a
tremendous effort the senator did
make the minimum $760 a year and
the. maximum $1300, but only, apply
ing to those teachers who. had been

ment to enter our noblest profession!
Salem as the educational and po
litical center should not force school
teachers wages at which they can af-
fesslon. Schools cannot be opened In
many parts of the state because
wages are not sufficient to attract
teachers to endure the hardships of
the poorest paid public servants in
the state. It Is a well known fact that
teachers engaged at Salem sought -In

The faculties of our colleges are suf

pride ln their profession and a high
sense of devotion to their lifework.

PRESIDENT WILSON has sounded a , sensible and
statesmanlike warning to, the national industrial
commission that it must find some common ground of
agreement for settling labor disputes and allaying indus
trial unrest. His letter does not sound like the utterance
of an incapacitated man, and refutes the sensational stor
ies spread by senate rumor mongers concerning his con

Both employers and employes are to blame for the
present situation. The unbending autocracy of some em
ployers breeds distrust and suspicion and hatred in em
ployes; the radicalism and bolshevism of some labor lead
ers justifies the distrust, suspicion and lack of faith in em
ployers. When this class of employers have the advantage,
they use it to oppress and reduce labor to serfdom. When

Think of it! -When bricklayers and

In large cities according to figures
supplied by the National Educational
association elementary teachers re
ceive $816.19 per annum, Intermedi
ate teachers $899.42, and high school
The same authority shows that
there are also 588 high school teach
ers in large cities who receive less
than $700 a year, and 2958 teachers
in these large cities who receive less
than $500 for twelve months service.
At the same time blacksmiths- in
the navy yards were reoeivtag $2396,
electricians $2321-; laborers. $1297,
and charwomen $873 a year.
Accordingi tor an article In Frank
Leslie's Weekly for September 27, the
IT. S. senate tried to raise the salary
of school teachers to the same- as
charwomen -and bootblacks for the
opposite extreme with the object of bankrupting the em
ployer and confiscating capital. ......
These classes represent the two extremes and one or
the other is the cause of most of our industrial turmoil.
The large majority of both employers and employes, how
ever, believe in the square deal' and for such the confer
ence should devise plans for equitable adjusting differ
ences and congress provide the machinery for enforcing
industrial peace based on justice upon the unwilling.
Industrial autocracy must go the way of. political
autocracy and industrial absolutism must abdicate its ar
bitrary power. At the same time industrial anarchy
must be banished and driven-from the land. One is the
clause of the other, and as long as we have the one, we
will have the other. ' There is no place in a democracy
for either, both are intent upon the destruction of dem
ocracy. . f s -
The laborer is entitled to an increasing share of the
wealth he helps produce. The capital making industry
possible is entitled to its fair return and the brains creat
ling and managing it is entitled to its fair share. The
day of fabulous profits made at the expense of the em
ploye has gone and the day of profiteering at the ex
pense of the public is nearing it& close. The day of co
operation, of partnership between the employer and em
ploye, the day of industrial justice is dawning and it canl
be speeded by the conference by the adoptior of a con-j
structive program. -
THOSE who suffer most from the high cost of living
are those living" on fixed, incomes which cannot be
adjusted to meet the situation. No class of workers is so
ground between the .millstones of high prices and small
salaries as public school teachers. None deserve better of
the community and none fare worse. - :
In this connection, attention is called to the communi
cation in the Capital Journal forum from Col. E. Hof er,
who cites official statistics showing that the average pay
for, teachers in the United States is $1.63 cents a day,
about one-third the pay of unskilled labor.
The teachers of Salem are under-paid and it is a
shame that this injustice prevails. The fact that teachers
are under contract and the board governed by a levy al
ready made, does not alter the situation.. There is al
ways a way to cut official red-tape where there is a will.
State and county have had to face-similar situations and
solve similar problems.
Justice rather than parsimony should govern the
treatment of those who perform the important work of
training the future generations which when all, is said,
is by far the most important and vital work in the, com
munity. If justice is not done, we will in all probability
have a teacher's union and a strike for higher wages.;

There is enough intelligence to
find some way to right this intoler
able situation. There should be dis
cussion. I am opposed to the school
teachers, forming unions and using
the strike club. It should not be nec
essary. For the welfare of the schools
more than for the personal interest
of the teachers, salaries should be
made to correspond to the conditions
under which we are living and ade
quate to maintain a first class teach
ing force for our city. Nearly every
teacher is loyally, sticking to the Job,
in spite of the .manifest Injustice of
the situation. Relief should come
from the citizens and in the Interest
of their children, who should not be
