About 75 per cent of those whose earnings would be increased are employed in sawmills, shingle mills and wooden box plants. The recommendation for exten- sion of the act was sponsored by 'James G.

Shelton Shell Oil Plant Full Depot Now, Gets New Head l Under a new policy effective with the Shell Oil company as of July 1, the company’s Shelton sales and delivery operations are now carried out as a full depot I in their own right instead of be- !ing a sub-depot of Olympia.

If there is one thing which justifies the av- erage worker or citizen of limited means and regular income going into debt, it is the owning of his home and shelter for his family, which can- not easily be lost; realty taxes are moderate and interest payments are far less than the drain for rentals.

PYRAMIDING CHECK NEEDED ’ Just how Leon Henderson, the government’s; price adjuster extraordinary, is going to recon-’ cile his actions in trying to set a ceiling on all prices to keep them from soaring out of sight to the growing trend of increasing wages and costs: of industry and of trade, transportation and all kinds of service, to the need for disturbing busi- ness in general as little as possible in a badly scrambled national economies, is something to be seen. Everybody desires and needs more money. for every service because it is going to cost more for living and for taxes, , has been to hoist all costs when Wisdom would! urge that everything which has to do with costS‘ should be frozen at present levels in fairness, Since neither workers or business are spffering'i as yet for the necessaries of living on the one: hand or a fair measure of profit; and with the un- ! known of the emergency Vice costs to the unfortunate people Who have no be assessed on their in-; inspire public confidence I l 0 yet every action so far l r on us all energies should be concentrated on defense with the least distrac— tion possible.
