Several devel-" opments on the labor front point to Intensification of the long struggle between employers and employes In Industry. These include unprecedented political activity by labor groups, evidence of repressive tactics ot a sensational nature, the rise of labor organisations to demand a voice In new fields, and likelihood of a Senate Investigation of Industrial practices Inimical to labor organization. The old-fashioned conception of the employer as a benevolent personage with the welfare of his workers at heart, though It still must apply In many cases, has taken a severe jolt with the vevela ail lion reporieo to nave Deeii maue imot tne Roosevelt administration a Senate probe-that major Indus-; WKlcn win . have the support' ot tries were secretly buying stores ot organised iau0r and pose as it machine guns, tear gas. revolvers. cbBmpion whne its opposition hat and ammunition, in anticipation of ;tlle auI)pol.t 0f the American Lib-labor strikes. .. .erty League, chiefly representativa The evidence was found by the , 0f antl-unlon employers."

Toby never knew hy the idea came to her that they must hurry. There was no reason for it, but all at once she' felt that it was important to reach the apartment and to reach there as quickly as possible. They went into the building and climbed the long flight of stairs. "You ought to have St. Bernards on this stairway," Bill said, "with nourishment for the weary climbers. Give me an Alp any dayl What, are we really at the top ?" Toby, ahead, did not hear him. She hurried forward and knocked on the door. There was no answer. Toby slipped her key into the lock, turned it and opened the door. And then, suddenly, it was Bill who pushed forward. He called out sharply, "Toby, don't go into that room!"

Deputation Teams Hold 2 Meetings The League of Evangelical Students of Albany College conducted three Easter services on April 12.

Also included in the program were a violin solo by Mr. Clifford, a duct by Miss Morton and Miss Marquart and a solo by Miss Marquart. Miss E.

TW' much to s in Sin Diago RATES 2to3so-L r lulose could be had" only by per sons of means. The cellulose industries, great as they already are, have made only a begining. Their possibilities are such that perhaps articles undreamed of today may appear on the markets tomorrow- The extent to which these industries may go appears now without bounds. In the Pacific northwest arc vast forests. Wood pulp is a major source of cellulose. And new uses of wood are not confined' to manu facture of cellulose alone. Wood fiber is being used more extensively than ever before along other lines. Year by year con sumption of' paper is growing. Wood fiber is employed in making of cartons, heat insulating 'materials, wall-boards and many new building materials. It has become possible to render wood fire-proof and as rcsistcnt to decay as stone. Of course the manufacture' of old-fashioned lumber is still the northwest's greatest industry, but the dawning of these new allied industries is decidedly reassuring. It gives hope that the timber industries will be assured of perpetuation, no matter what adver sities may confront one or' another of its branches. Advances of science in the utilization of wood extracts gives to the timber in dustry that same flexibility which diversification gives to agricul ture. If the market for one product Is slow, that for another may be active, thus effecting a balance and continued operation. Sooner or later the new fibers will be furnished In a large measure by the northwest. As' the volume of manufacturing increases the supplies of raw materials will become more and more remote from the industrial centers. Ultimately the center will move toward their supply sources- That means that the cellulose industry will move to the northwest.' President Roosevelt may have lost ' more votes than he made last night, at least among the Amos and Andy fans. Work on Market Road Progressing Peoria. (Speial) WPA work on the Peoria, Harrisburg and Cor-vallis market road is progressing satisfactorily. Clearing and grubbing of the right of way is completed and the crew has started two underground stock crossings, one of which is to be built at the Fred Moody farm and one at the George Chandler farm. These crossings will be a great convenience as they will eliminate danger of crossing the stock through the traffic. The grading and graveling of this section of the market road from Peoria to Lake Creek will complete the market road from Corvallis to Harrisburg by way of Peoria on the cast side of the Willamette river, Grading will start in about 40 days. This road Will be oiled Hie entire distance of 24 miles in due time- Walp Will Stand Trail on April 27 Salem. Ore.. April 14.

CAV'T spend and save The small boy who wanted to eat his cake and have It, too, was in no worse fix thanhe politician of 1936 who keeps one eye on tho job he hopes to get and the other on' the voters who, he hopes, will hand it to him. .For the politician, these days, is becoming the victim of a squeeze He is finding himself pinned between two apparently irresistible forces, and there is no sign that either of them is going to, let up. ;One the one hand, there is the overwhelming necessity for strict government economy; on 'the other, the equally overwhelming need for government to do a good niany things' that it never dreamed of doing before. . The sad plight of the office-seeker, sitting right between these opposing forces, is beautifully illustrated by the recent campaign speech of an Illinois gentleman who is running for the senate. This individual, as quoted in the current New Republic,' declared himself thus:' ; "I favor the discontinuance of the orgy of spending in Washing- toff," thereby reducing the cost of government and taxation ...... I favor deepening and widening the . channel-of the Illinois river i' favor deepening and" widening the Hennepin canal. .... .Federal ' funds should be advanced to the railroads to repair and rebuild the roadbeds and tracks, by hand labor In farm legislation, the government should make grants to ; the states the states to pay bounties- to the farmers for removing 25 to 30 per cent of their acreage from production." And there we have it. This politician takes a bold and forthright stand for strict economy and, in the same breath, declares with equally bold forthrightness for policies which Would mukc econ-' omy Impossible, You can't laugh it off by saying that' this particular vole-hunter' is not quite right in the head, be-. cause to some extent every politician in the' land is in the same boat. ; The heart-rending plight of the ' present national administration, , which went into office pledged to cut' government costs by 25 per i cent, is the most notable example; ' the reduction ad absurdum is the i case of the Michigan candidate for congress, who demanded rigid ; economy, adoption of the Town-' send Plan, and payment of the soldiers' bonus. Where do we come out on all this, anyway? Wo simply can't no on spending forever at our present - rate; but tho minute we start to riit expenses, we tread heavily on tho toes of some vested interest, some vocal and influential section of the voting populace, some utterly essential activity that has to be " done by someone, regardless. And . so what? ; ' Perhaps the only way out is for us to decide which of the two we want and then stick to it. We can't have both; by demanding "both we are giving our office-seekers headaches and turning politics into a three-ring circus. It's Sjust about time that we begun to get wise to ourselves. NEW HOPE POR NORTHWEST Manufacture of a thread so fine that if unwound from a ball weighing one pound it would reach from' New York to San Francisco Is reported by the American.' Chemical society. This thread, it is claimed, is finer than the finest silk. It is made of arti ficlal fiber. It is rayon. Rayon and kindred materials are composed of cellulose extracted from, cotton or wood. Spruce is a major source of cellulose. Other woods, too, yield materials which re now being utilized in so many different ways that volumes would be required to describe them. The manufacture of a thread that is finer than silk places sci-. ence one ahead of nature. It Is another step among the many that have been taken toward making available to all a dress-goods ma ably the most commonly flouted,1 law in the country today. ', It has been common practice; this evidence indicates, for larff' corporations to- employ- "stoat pigeons" to join labor unions,'" make reports on the unions' affairs and memberships, and tO-ob-struct or nullify their; work from the Inside.

'You re sure you 11 oe an right? Toby hadn't promised to meet Bill because she was uneasy about leaving Harriet alone. "Of course 1 11 be all right. Toby, persuaded, called Bill and they arranged a meeting place. When she arrived, not more than 10 minutes late, she exclaimed, "Bill, how grand you look!" 'Like the suit.' Ho was grin ning like a school boy. "I certainly do. Its brand new, isn't it?" "Almost. And the best thing about this suit is the pockets. They've got money in 'cm- Listen!" He reached into a pocket, jingling some change. "Miss Ryan, we're off for a large evening." "Why, Bill, have you come into an inheritance or something?" "Nothing of the sort. Honest toil, my good woman honest toil has made me what I am today. It's made me hungry, too. Come on " Over the dinner, at a fashionable restaurant, Bill explained further. "When I was writing ads," he said, "I was just one of hundreds who could do the job as well. But selling them ah, that's different! Do you know how much business I've brought in this week?' He was off, quoting figures figures that amazed Toby. "I'm getting a great kick out of it," he assured her. "I've found my job and I'm going to stick to it. The boss has come through with one raise and if I get this Halluran contract I'm working on, I'll get another." "That's wonderful," Toby told him. "I'm awfully glad, Bill." Ho went on, telling an amusing incident that had taken place the day before. He kept her entertained throughout the dinner so that she almost forgot she had been worried earlier. As they left the restaurant. Bill said, "Well, what's it to be now? The town is yours tonight, Toby-What'll you have night clubs, theaters. Coney Island, the flea circus name your choice!" "I'll tell you what I'd like to do." Toby said. "Let's go back and get Harriet. She had some bad news yesterday. Bill, and I can't help worrying about her. Let's ask her to come with us." "Why, surfc," he agreed. They walked to the apartment. Toby said, "It's such a wonderful evening, I'd like to stay out doors. I'll tU you what I'd like to do.

"Oh, Toby!" in a voice that was barely above a whisper. A few moments before she had been a picture of bridal beauty the loveliest bride, Toby had thought, that she had ever seen. Now Harriet's face wns drenched of color whiter than the gown she wore or the filmy veil ubout her shoulders, tier eyes, bleakly bewildered, stared at Toby's. ."What is it?" Toby demanded again. "Harriet, what's happened'.'" Instead of answering, Harriet looked at the letter she was still clutching in her hand. "Read it," she suid, holding it out to Toby. It was the letter Clyde Sabin had written. Toby took it, hastily read the brief paragraphs: 'Dear Harriet: When you got this I will be on my way to California. This morning 1 was married to Mrs. Lynchfield. You probably remember thut her husband, who died last winter, was an olticer of the cumpany. "I hope you will not take this too hard, Harriet. My only excuse lor not telling you sooncd is that 1 couldn't bear to hurl you. Hut I am sure it is really for the best. I will always think of you as one of the sweetest girls I have ever known, and some day I know you will meet someone who will make you as happy as you deserve to be. Clyde." - ' Toby said, "Oh, darling, I'm so sorry!'' The words sounded trivial and meaningless. Harriet was still standing there, ghostly white. there was no sign of tears in her eyes, no sign ot emotion at all in her face except that she pressed her lips together, trying to steady thorn. "You ought to sit down." Toby said, putting her arm around her. Here 1 11 send tho maid to get something for you " Hut there was no time. Miss Wylie, the director of the style show, appealed and said crisply, Is everyone ready? Line up. you bridesmaids. Where's our bride?" She motioned toward Harriet-"You go in last," she said. "All right now. We're ready " Toby turned to Harriet. "But you can't!" she said. "You can't go on now. Some one else will have to lake your place!" Harriet shook her head. "No," she said. "I'm all right. I'll go on." Hut you shouldn t Harriet was not listening. "My flowers," she said, turning to the maid, "Where are my flowers?" A few moments later, the bridal bouquet In her arms, she was walkmg slowly, steadily out on the stage. Toby was never to forget the picture of Harriet in tho glistening satin gown, her lovely red- gold hair beneath the cap of lace and the long veil floating back from her shoulders. Harriet had never looked more beautiful-Toby's own heart was pounding and she stole anxious glances at Vanilla :5 v. v. hi eMitmf flmfi- Imitt 1936 NCA Setvlce, tee. her roommate, but Harriet looked completely calm. She was like that afterwards in the dressing room. She took off the wedding gown and got into her street clothes with exactly her usual care. She stopped to put powder on her nose and see that the brim of her hut titlted over her eyes us it should. Out on the street, Toby said, "We'l Hake a cab home," she thuught thut, away fromt the others, Harriet's reserve would breuk. Toby suid, "He wusn't good enough for you, Harriet. Not nearly good enough! 1 never thought so. I didn't want you to know it, but I never thought he was the man for you. This other woman has money, I suppose. She's the one to be sorry for! He'll treat her worse than he's treated you !" Harriet said, "Don't talk like that, Toby." "But it's true, every word of it. I'd like a chance to tell him what I think of him." Harriet shook her head. "I I just can't seem to believe it's happened," she said. "I can't seem to realize I won't see him again-Everything's over. It's ended " "But it isn't, darling. Everything's just beginning. A man who could do a thing like that isn't worth a minute's regret. It's going to be hard for a while, of course, but you'll be glad some day it happened this way. 1 know you will!" Harriot said, "But he loved me, Toby. He really loved me once!" "You're better off without that kind of love. It's the money he was thinking ubout. Don't you see that?" "It's just that 1 can't realize it's happened " They stayed at home that evening. Toby prepared hot soup and toast and a salad. She spread the table with a guy linen cloth and set out the food, but Harriet scarcely touched it. Her eyes still had the dazed, bewildered look. She didn't say any more about Clyde Sabin. Harriet's silence bothered Toby. "If she'd only stop holding back," she thought. "If she'd only cry or storm around und throw things, she'd get over it sooner." Harriet did none of those things. When Toby tried to talk to her about other things" anything to take her mind off Clyde her answers wore brief. She picked up a magazine and then, a HUle later, said that she thought she'd go to bed. Toby was away from the apartment most of the next day. She came in at 5 o'clock to find Harriet, in a negligee, curled up on the davenport.
