OLYMPIA, Nov. 29--Has Wash- :ington's industrial insurance act bro- :ken down? If so what will the com- ling session of the Legislature do to ! i remedy coditions ? These are two questions which are now stirring official Olympia, fol- lowing reports that the state indus-  trial insurance has become virtually insolvent in at least three of its larg- er funds, and that the industries af- fected can no longer .meet the ever increasing' assessments ad still keep in business. The situation is critical. There is no question about this. Industrial leaders; labor leaders who are of a studious nature and not blinded to what has occurred; and business gen- erally, is worried. Ominous abuses; ambulance chas- ing attorneys; doctors lacking prop- er perspective or ethics; even the in- clination on the part of the courts to lean over backwards, are all con- tributing factors in creating a con- dition which threatens industrial in- surance not only in Washington, but througghout the ation. Here is something which the coin- mg session of the Legislature will have to face. It is of interest to ev- ery honest w()rkman and every em- )loyer in the 'state that there be some speedy rectification of the ex- isting evils. The cost of industrial insurance has become a burden and the pur- poses of the act are seemingly for- gotten. It is now more than an in- dustrial insurance act; it can be classed almost as a pension system with unemployment insurance. State Insurance.. The general impression has been permitted to grow that the state in- dustrial insurance system is some kind of state insurance. Nothing is further from the real facts, despite the attitude on the part of certain beneficiaries and some of the more easily politically swayed, courts. In fact the industrial insurance act is a statute which provides that indus- try, employers of labor, shall set up a trust fund to be haudled by the state from which injured workman or their widows and chihlren shall be px'ovidl for. The state acts only as a trustee of this fund. The general taxpayers of the state pay the costs of adminis- tration. The employer creates the unnd through assessments. The workman benefits. The state as such is si,nply the collecting and disburs- ing officer. The fund is not a state fund. It is a trust fund actually belonging to the employers of the state and to no one else. It is not a state fund. Through the abuses which have ,crept into the act, there are now de- ficits in some of the major funds and these are just another additional bur- den upon the industries affected.' A study of the rates and the col- lections show that with few excep- tions the basic rates are lower than the costs. This simply means that for some time past the outgo has been the Sunday School institutes.  .......... .^ w:l t k- .1 ^ serv.c ^ c'"d-'" g'reaer man tne income.

There has been no snow here so far, and yesterday morning, the first day of December, was bright and warm. In order to have successful meet- ings of the League, it is necessary that the weather be cold and that there be about a foot of snow on the ground. Then the faithful will gather about the Hot Stove (?), play chess and checkers, catch fish, hunt deer, grow apples, lid boxes, save the na- tion, etc. VOLUNTEERS CARRY SEALS[ Distribution Accomplished Here In Very Short I Time "In order to hold down expenses this year, Christmas Seals are being delivered by volunteers, instead of by mail," said Mrs. Kenneth McPher- son who is directing the sale here. "The seals were (leliven'ed here early Friday morning, the day following Thanksgiving. I wish to thank the following volunteers for the way in which they delivered 100 envelopes, each containing 200 seals: Ernest Washburn, Forest Lamberton, Bob Woods, Herman Bertram, Luther Pendleton. In addition 25 envelopes of seals were sent out by mail." Accompanying the seals is an en- velope which is 'to be used in return- ing payment or the seals. Mrs. Mc- Pherson asks that this envelope be used in either case as it helps keep a check on the progress of the sale. The sale closes Christmas Eve and fall returns should be made by that  time so that the county report can be made. FREIGHTERS CONVICTED C. A. And L. G. Long Get Fines And Jail Sentence Spokane Review: OLYMPIA, Nov. 28. (AP)C. A. and L. G. Long, brothers, charged with contempt of court for refusing to heed a court order enjoining them from operating a motor vehicle freight line between Seattle and Wenatchee, were con- victed today before Superior Judge John M. Wilson. Proceedings against the two men were brought by the state department of public works. Each of the defendants was given six ,months in jail and fined $40;0. !Judge Wilson ordered the jail terms suspended if the fines were paid. Late today the two men had not paid the fines and were being hehl in the county jail here. SENDING VETS TO SOAP LAKE HOSPITAL Wenatehee World:--A number of ex-soldiers will soon be transferred from the ,veteran's hospitals of the 'state to Soap Lake for treatment for Beurger's disease, according to Mrs. Si Adams and Mrs. F. N. Lucas, pro- pvietors of the New Beach hospital who were business visitors in Wenat- chee, Tuesday afternoon. Dr. and Mrs. Edward Bogard of Walla Walla have already taken up their residence at the New Beach ho- tel, where they have bden detailed by the Veterans' administration, to supervise and observe the effects of Soap Lake water in the h:eatment of the disease. Congressman John W. Summers succeeded in obtaining a $50,000 ap- propriation from the federal govern- ment for treatment of the veterans at Soap Lake a few months ago. NUMBER 29 I ii ii i i ii ii I DAIRY PRICES ARE UP AS SUPPLIES DROP Butterfat Prices Rising And Feed Costs Are Dropping Rising butterfat prices and lowered feed costs are rapidly dispelling some of the gloom that has enshrouded the dairy situation, accordiug to R. M. Turner, State College extension conomist. The usual seasonal rise which failed to arrive in September, October and early November is now developing in the face of reduced supplies. The controlling factor in the ,resent situation has not been over- ,reduction, but under consumption, especially in fluid milk. Although there are about four per cent more dairy cows on farms in the United States than there were a year ago, the lighter feeding on account of low butterfat prices, is largely re- sponsible for the reduced supplies. Unless butterfat prices show unusual increases, little change in the rate of feeding (lairy cow is expected. Pro- duction of butter in Washington dur- ing September was about 13 per cent less than for September 1931. Feed Prices Dow'n The feed situation for dairymen who must buy a portion of their feed is favorable. The average farm price of feed grains in the United States declined 16 per cent from September 15 to October 15. The large volume of wheat on hand and the 14 per cent increase in the four feed crops of corn, barley, oats and sorghum grains will tend to provide ample concen- trates for the dairy rations of the country as a whole. A 25 per cent in- crease in the production of alfalfa in the western states should make the supply ample. Dairymen everywhere are studying their local situation and setup in or- der to carry on despite relatively low prices. Many are reducing costs by raising more home grown feeds, rais- ing better feeds, improving pastures, closer culling of cows and by green feeding in July, August and Septem- ber. Only by efficient management will the dairymen be able to curtail loss- es, maintain good dairy herds and hold their farms and farm homes, points out Mr. Turner. However, they will be in an ideal position to profit when conditions improve. GAS PRICES TAKE 4 CENT TUMBLE Bringfing joy to motorists, gas prices took a 4 cent drop here last Saturday, bringing the price to 21 cents per gallon for white gasoline and 24 cents for ethyl anti super- gasolines. This is the lowest price asked for gas here and at other Okanogan val- ley points for several months. The drop is not attributed to one of the periodic gas wars but to a seasonal decline. CREDITORS RECEIVE BANKRUPT NOTICE Notices to creditors have been sent out in the case of H. L. Washburn who was duly adjudicated bankrupt on November 18, 1932. The. first meeting of the creditors will be held at the office of Daniel S. Evans, Referee in bankruptcy, in Wenatchee on December 9, 1932. TAKE MACHINERY OUT FOR REPAIRS Virgil Stevens and Francis Whi- tinger returned from Spokane Wed- nesday night, bringing back a part of a rock crusher which they took to that city for repairs, last Thursday. The part, weighing about four tons, is used in a rock crusher op- erated by Sampson, Hohner & Ma- lone in the stock-piling work for the Methow Valley road i:nprovement.
