Terms WALKER TILE CO. inn E. i)«Ti« Ph. 8-69SS Forest Fires Are Raging Out Of Control in Dry Northwest SAN FRANCISCO !.fl — Forest fires raged uncontrolled today over tens of thousands of acres of sun- dried timber in California and Oregon. New fires burst loose as weary fighters battled older ones and there was danger of more to come in the rainless brush and timber lands. No casualties were reported. In northern California almost 11,000 acres were blackened 45 miles north of Eureka and some 300 firefighters had no hope of immediate control. Hangers said the blaze appeared to be slowing but it still was spreading. It burned out the Alexander Lumber Co. plant— mills, bunkhouses, 12 cabins and a cookhouse. Hearing: Red Woods Fifty miles south of Eureka another fire, covering about 3.000 acres, burned southward. At one point the flames were only one mile from one of the largest stands of redwoods left In the world—the Rockefeller Grove. One family fled the flames with only their clothes; others were reported in danger. In central California, about 50 miles east of Fresno, another huge blaze rolled' over almost 7,000 acres of Sequoia National Forest after being stopped at one point almost in the streets of. the little community of Miramonte. Residents had been evacuated from Miramonte and nearby Pinehurst. In California's northern inland area, almost a score of new fires were reported set by a rainless lightning storm. Two other fires were already blazing,in the same area—the Klamath River Valley in Siskiyou County. Other Fire* Other California fires Included 500 acres near Six Rivers National Forest; 2,000 acres each in two areas 40 and "0 miles south of Eureka; 5,000 acres each in San Benito, Solnno and Fresno counties and 1,600 acres in San Diego County. In Oregon, lightning-set fires raged in three national forsts and firefighters said they expected trouble from all of them. The worst blaze endangered the eastern Oregon town of Senaca, population about 700, yesterday but it was saved when the wind shifted. Senaca is In the Malheur National Forest, where three other fires were crackling. All the primary kaolin produced in the United Statei comet from North Carolina.

SMITH PROBCCTI 00k Organized Labor s Demands Are Nothin By JAMES MARLOW j Associated Press News Analyst ' WASHINGTON (AP) — Organized workers, celebrating Labor Day today, made their biggest 1955 news with drives for annual wage. This was more than a wage demand. It was an emphasis on welfare. And that was not new. The idea — that a man needs more than the wages he gets for a day's work (o protect him from disasters — goes back at least 165 years to a time when there weren't any labor unions in America. The earliest unions—the shoemakers of Philadelphia and the printers and cabinet makers 01 New York—didn't appear until the 1790s. Before that, men in various crafts — for example, carpenters and mechanics—formed mutual aid societies. They paid into a general fund out of which benefits were provided for sickness and death. But that was a case of workers providing for themselves out of their own pockets. It was only later, a century and a half later, that unions were strong enough to demand nonwage benefits from employers on a, wide and huge scale. In those intervening years labor had its ups and downs, and progress in the field of welfare was made slowly and painfully through Jaws passed by Congress and the had a cash balance of. more than 103 million compared with a 93'^- miliion balance 12 months earlier. Since the war the CIO particularly ha:; driven for pensions and, •d\l» year, for a guaranteed wage in case union members were laid oil through no fnult of their own. states. T>fal Strides Among the legal strides: limiting the working hours of children, reducing working hours in general, establishing, compensation for workers injured on the job. A number of pension plans were set up, almost all of them voluntarily by employers. There were no laws compelling' employers to bargain with a union about a pension. It wasn't unti the passage of the Wagner Act in 1935 that employers were even compelled to bargain with a union at all. It was after that thai unions flourished. In 1935 there were perhaps no more than four million organized workers. Today over 17 million of them are in unions. Congress also in 1935 gave its blessing to the idea of old-age pensions by passing the Social Se- ( curity Act. And the National Labor j Relations Board, which admims-j lered the Wagner Act and its suc-| cessor, the Taft-Hartley Act, ruled | unions have a right tq bargain with employers about pensions. Got Pensions Unions have taken advantage of that and obtained pensions from employers which made it unneces- j sary for their organized workers j to depend entirely on social secu rity. The most sensational success o . a union in the field of welfare! after World War H was made by John L. Lewis' United Mine Workers Union. In 1947 Lewis got the conl operators to contribute a _ percentage of each ton of coal mined The payment Went into a welfare fund for sick and old miners iind those killed on ine job. Last, month Lewis said that in the past year the fur.d had collected more than 129 million dollars, had paid out over 119 million in pensions and sick benefits, and 3 generations AH over Aincrica. 3 generations -::ime families have chosen IU;i You can own a Mayuig for ^ o in the 'ytags. 1.95 New Glider Record Cloimed VICTORVILLE, Calif, tfl — An international glider record was j claimed today by a California!!
