ITi Capital Journal, Salem, Oregon Saturday, January 21, 1939 TwelW Cleve Shields Superintendent Of City Parks The Salem Park board announces the appointment of Cleve W. Shields M general superintendent of city parka. Mr. Shields 1 a Salem resident and taxpayer and owns his home at 1271 Marion street. He has had five years' experience on the grounds of the state hospital, for the last two years being in charge of the lawns and flowers. He comes to the board highly recommended both by the staff at the state has pita 1 and by numerous business and professional men. He will assume his duties February 1 and will take immediate steps to get the spring work under way. Frank J. Kluck, for many years superintendent of city parks, resigned last September because of ill health. The board, in order to con-1 serve funds, delayed appointment of his successor until such time as the work became more urgent. During the last two weeks considerable transplanting, re-arranfiing and grouping of shrubs have been done under the supervision of Miss Elizabeth Lord, a member of the board. Anticipating much tourist travel this summer and interest in the new capltol and ground.:, the park board hopes to bring Wilison Park up to a condition that will compare favorably in every way with the state capitol grounds adjoining. Many request have come to the members of the board bur nesting that the Testout roses which have been so long In the park strip be removed, particularly so since they have been eliminated from the state capltol grounds and In ail proband Ity will be taken out of the parking strip around the new federal building, the argument being presented that they are attractive only in the early spring and are of considerable damage to dresses and stockings of those desiring to enter the park from cars along the curb. No drci sion has yet been arrived at.

The comm.; : Ion Indicated that, from May 1 to October 31 the main period of the falmon run. 234,fi6i chlnooks cleared the Bonneville fish ladders. Of this number. f795 were counted over tl:e Rock Island ladder, heading for Orand Coulee dam. The Orand Ciulee dnm will have virtually no eflrvt on the substantial allverside salmon supply In the Columbia rlvar. the commission said. The species spawns below Rock Island. Only 78 silversiries were cherk-d over Rock Island splash ponds last year and none was noted in 1030. Authorities said blueback salmon formed the largest run reaching Rock bland, with one of every four members of the species passing Bonneville surviving the upriver trip. Approximately 75.000 bluebacks passed Bonneville last year. At Rock Island 17.005 were counted. About one of every 50 steelheads 5ver Bonneville also finds Its way to Rock Island ladders, with 349!) reaching thero last year. The commission said Its statistics had a decided bearing on controversy over the handling of food fish runs reaching Bonneville. One plan contemplated Uking the fish at Rock Island and transporting them to rearing ponds, but the commission said the cost and loss of cRg-braring salmon would be considerable. Another proposed establishment or a hatchery at Orand Coulee and the taking of fish at that point, the commission said, would permit fish to spawn in several streams emptying Into the Columbia between Coulee and Rock Island. T. 6. Control Extended in County in '36 Work of control and prevention of tuberculosis was considerably aiiRinented in Marion county during tne yrar 1938, a report Issued from the Marion county department of health reveals. Tuberculin teats were given 4.648 persons as against 3.887 for the preceding year. Of the total tested, 732 gave positive re actions resulting in 205 X-ray ex animations. Vaccinations against smallpox were given 3.592 individuals while 1.914 received immiyiization against diphtheria. In the control of venereal disease 129 persons were admitted to medi- cnl service with 2.359 clinic visits. mis is an increase of 26 persons over a year ago. The health department staff made 698 field visits in the interest of infants, while 387 visits were marie to the clinic. Infants admit ted to medical service totaled 309. In the school hygiene depart ment, 13,427 inspections were made while 5,047 examinations were given by physicinns. A large upturn in assistance to In- riiRcnt patients Is shown, due, to a larRe extent to the fact that a phy sician has been secured who devotes much of his time to charity cases. A total of 890 persons on relief sought medical attention, resulting in 2.472 clinical visit and 5,459 field visits. Field visits to food handling establishments totaled 1,097, al most double the number for 1937. Field visits to dairy farms and plants dropped off slightly. Increases in the number of scar let fever cases, smallpox and syphilis were noted in the annual report of communicable disease. Influenza dropped off from a total of 600 In 11)37 to 114 In 1938. Tuberculosis also declined from 75 to 34. While the number of case of pneumonia fell off from 193 to 137, deaths in creased from 41 to 46. There were 19 dentils from tuberculosis, the same as in 1937.

Y. t la live ami-picketing law, Is con tained in a statement of labor's po sition on proposed amendments to the compensation act Issued here today by D. E. Ntckerson, executive secretary of the Oregon state Federation of Labor. He also charges that blame for the loss of compensation for Oregon workers, In the event certification is permanently withheld by the national social security board or If tht legislature should repeal the state unemployment insurance act, will rest not with organized labor but with its foes the champions of the a nti-picketing law. He also pledges labor to work for legislation which will "best assure the permanence of unemployment benefits without penalizing workers or denying them the rights which are accorded under similar acts In other states.' "We are convinced. said Nicker-son, "that the only motives of Gov. Sprague and the Oregon unem ployment compensation commission are their wish that that the present confused situation was not brought about by organized labor, but by some of those who are now seeking to place the odium upon labor for the present predicament. If the amendment which may be adopted should not meet the approval of the social security board, and federal aid be withheld, that sin would not be upon labor but upon those who conceived and promoted the anti-labor law. "Threats are being made that In case the social security board fails to certify the Oregon law, that the state act will be repealed. In that case Oregon employers would still be taxed approximately six million dollars annually but unemployed workers would receive no benefits. Organized labor would not be responsible for that situation. We cannot believe that the legislature would resort to such an extreme as to repeal the state act, but if it did. then the responsibility for the slt-i uation would be upon the legislature Jointly with those who spent a lav-1 Josephine Adds $300 To Highway Fund Grants Pass.

The state Federation of Labor will support such amendment In its opinion gives most assur ance of present and future approval by tit national board. "It appears that our original contention that the anti-labor law Jeopardized unemployment compensation has been vindicated. We took that position in the face of vigorous opposition, but developments have vindicated our action. Now, in the face of opposition some of which may be persons who sincerely desire to aid in preserving unem ployment compensation, and some of which may be inspired by hostil ity to labor we again stand reso lutely for protection of the compen sat Ion fund and for the protection of the lights of the workers. "We want to emphasize the fact New Financial Plan Used for Birthday Ball The sixth annual drive of the National Foundaton for Infantile Paralysis, which will be climaxed at the President's Birthday ball Mon day night, January 30, is being con ducted on a new financial arrange ment. The birthday ball will be celebrat ed throughout the nation on the same night and in Salem two halls have been engaged to take care of the crowds, the armory and the Crystal Gardens, according to Dr. Vernon A. Douglas, Marlon county health officer, who is general chair man of the committee In charge. The new financial basis calls for half of the funds raised to be kept locally and the function of the local group will be to act in any sudden emergency, to help distribute knowl edge about the dreaded disease and to be of general service to obtain medical aid for those stricken with Infantile paralysis. Mrs. David Wright, a member of the Salem school board, is chairman of the committee in charge of dis posing of the funds. "Already we have three cases pending which need immediate hos pitalization' Mrs. Wright reported "but we are helpless for the lack of funds. We feel confident that when Salem ites realize that half of the funds raised will be kept right here to combat Infantile paralysis, they will respond with extra effort. "Our committee spends the money for braces, some hospitalization and for transportation to get the patients to medical attention. Dr. Richard B. Dillehunt of Portland Is regional medical director for the entire Pacific northwest and the cooperation he has given us Is deeply appre ciated. He charges nothing for his services and the only part we have to pay is the actual cost of hospitalization. If we had to pay for every service rendered our patients we wouldn't have enough to last two months and as It is. we have a ter rible struggle to make It last as long as it does."

There were 114,416 men employed In December, about 3.000 more than a year ago and the largest number working in any December since pre-depression days. December was the first month in more than a year which surpassed the corresponding month a year previous. The charts show that Industry began to pick up about election day in November, when the seasonal downward trend was interrupted. But business In 1938 was worse than In 1937. an average of 6.000 less men being employed throughout the year. The payroll loss was more than $6,000,000 the same amount paid by the Unemployment compensation commission to Jobless workers during the year: The following table shows how Oregon's industry fared last year compared with 1937: Total pa-roll . . . .1147.903.357 I154.34S.4S?

Md and the Bakelite Corpn.. New York. He said a ship of the new material already had been built and had parsed Its tests. "The Clark company, he said, "could go into mass production in a week. "We have signed an agreement with the army and navy pledging secrecy regarding a detailed description of the process through which the material was developed and the plane built, but Its principle hinges on the use of dies In which one complete section of the fuselage or wing can be cast at once." The material used, he said, consisted of many strips of wood of long grain impregnated with bakelite synthetics. The result was a water-proof structure lighter than aluminum yet of tremendous strength. The fuselage, he said, la cast In two parts. After they are taken from the dies, the parts are glued together and reinforced with spars glued on the inside. He said as many as 10 airplanes a day could be built from a single set of dies. A fuselage can be turned out in two hours. Dr. Baum Due Home in March Dr. W. Wells Baum. associated with the Pindley.

Jan. 21 JP The bell which for the last 52 years has summoned Gold Hill worshippers to the Methodist Episcopal church will ring Sunday from a new belfry. Cooperation of Methodist people from the entire Rogue river valley helped the congregation to complete this week ercetion of a new building to replace one condemned last year. The old structure's walls were found full of acorns, stored by woodpeck ers which have competed with the preacher for attention by loudly drilling holes in the wall behind the pulpit. Interest in the community build ing project has been so great, states Loren W. Messenger, Ashland Normal school psychology instructor and the Gold Hill pastor, that the congregation is six times the size It was when the call was issued In Ortober for volunteer helpers. Coalition at Olympia Not Welt Tested Capitol. Olympia, Jan. 21 Mn Conservative democrats today steered the Washington legislature past its second week without an Important test of the coalition upon which their control rests. To all appearances, the cooperative agreement between right-wing democrats and republicans described variously as an harmonious understanding for the benefit of the entire state and as an unhold a ill a nee to stifle liberalism was working perfectly in both houses, with no visible break in the ranks. On the other hand, there have been no real opportunities lor breaks, since neither house has con sidered a really controversial bill which might show up weaknesses in the ruling combination. Sen. W. R. Orndorff ID., Spokane), conservative stalwart, said today he is well satisfied with progress of the first two weeks. "We have avoided foolish and Ill-advised legislation, he said, "perhaps things have not moved as fast as they might, but on the whole, committees have done good work and prospects are for real accomplishments." Other observers, however, saw a less hopeful picture. Sen. Frank L. Morgan (D., Grays Harbor), made a flat prediction the senate combine would break down. He pointed out the six republican members voted two on one side and four on the other on a minor ballot Friday. On their very first test," Mor gan said, "they split wide open. When anything important comes along, they'll be so far apart they won't recognize each other, and that goes for some democrats as well. Their coalition will be a myth before this is over." Sen. Charles F. Stinson (R., Ben ton), second oldest senator In point of service, denied the republican di vision Friday indicated a real split but warned of another danger to the senate combination. "This steering committee," he said, "is going entirely too fast. They're deciding things for us be fore we know what they re alt about.' He criticized particularly the fact republicans were not consulted beforehand on certain social security measures and added that the senate's passage of two bills before printed copies were delivered to members for reading had created "a dangerous precedent." He said he would oppose any moves to pass additional bills In that manner.
