PORTLAND. Ore., Dec. 31.—"Babies are born without limit and
must live, and there are always plenty of workless men waiting to take
dead fathers' shoes."
"Oregon has protected iron and steel machinery, but human ma
chinery has been too cheap to protect; give the babies a chance."
That was part of the publicity battle turned on Big Business in
Oregon by organized labor this last November; today Oregon has real,
sure enough employers' liability law.
For years the worst conditions regarding the protection of labor
disgraced Oregon. Today Oregon has the broadest liability law in the
nation. The sudden change didn't come by itself.
