Detroit to Reduce
Teachers’ Salaries
Detroit, May 13.—<7P) —A three per
cent reduction in the salary of all
school teachers in Detroit was de
cided on Tuesday by the board of
education.
At the same time an increase In
school tuition fees was announced.

stated, will create a $700,000 fund
that will be used to pay the annual
salary schedule increases next year,

teachers in the system.
Check on Rural
Schools Is Begun
Demonstration teachers for the
state department of public instruction
are checking work in the country
schools of the state with the survey
made last fall for improving class
room instruction, according to Miss
Bertha Palmer, superintendent.
Through a definite demonstration
program and conferences the depart

and efficient teaching methods.
Miss Sarah Guss will spend the
week in the vicinities of Minot and
Williston; Miss Beatrice Thoreson will

Burleigh to Have
Highway Distinction
Burleigh county soon will have the
distinction of being the only county
in the state having a hard-surfaced
highway stretching from one end of
the county to the other.
j. n. Roherty, research engineer
for the state highway department,
said Wednesday that surfacing of
Highway No. 10 is scheduled for com
pletion Sept. 1, to give Burleigh coun
ty a hard-surfaced road from the
western boundary at Bismarck to the
east county line.
Contracts call for surfacing the
highway with oil mix at Menoken to
the east line. This will give the
county a road that starts with pave
ment at Bismarck, and from there on
as an oil-mix surfaced
highway.
Mr. Roherty said no other county
in the state can claim a highway of
this kind, and indications are it will
•he a considerable period before any
county will complete construc
tion of a hard-surfaced road extend
from tbs border to border.

Spinach Because of Liver Ailment
New York. May 13.—(VPi—Oscar

known maitre d’hotel. who has
ushered countless millionaires to
the groaning board and presided
at thousands of epicurean feasts,

“It’s my liver,” the rotund ex

On account of sedentary life I

New York made him an honorary

gave him a silver cross lor “so

He was asked: Mr. Oscar, if you

“Spinach.” said Oscar with a

GIVES OPINION ON
TELEPHONE RATES
Death
Birth
Attorney General Says Cities
Have No Power to Regulate
Phone Charges
City councils cannot, by franchise
or ordinance, regulate telephone rates,
Attorney General James Morris ruled
in an opinion Wednesday. He stated
this power was vested in the state
railroad commission.
The ruling was given in reply to
questions raised by Harvey J. Miller,
New England.
Mr. Morris called attention to Chap
ter 209, Session Law’s of 1915, declar
ing telephone companies to be com
mon carriers and giving general su
pervision over such companies to the
state board of railroad commissioners.
“This authority," the opinion said,
"includes power to approve or disap
prove telephone rate schedules, which
schedules are required to be filed with
the commission.
“Should city councils be permitted
to contract for rates on residence and
business phones within the city
through a franchise, this power would
directly conflict with the power vest
ed in the railroad commission by
chapter 209. Furthermore, it would
permit discrimination which is de
clared unlawful by the law (Chap
ter 209».
“It is, therefore, my opinion that
the city council cannot, by franchise
or ordinance, contract for or regulate
rates charged by telephone companies
for residence and business phones.”

Not Bothered by Egg
Minot, N. D., May 13.—(/P)—'While
Ben H. Spence, dry speaker from To

Canada, praised the members of the
Wickersham commission, and flayed
Nicholas Murray Butler and the As
sociation Against the Prohibition
amendment, someone threw an egg
into the Vincent Methodist church in
Minot Tuesday night.
The egg crunched against the inner
vestibule door, and the contents of its
shell were distributed upon the door
and dripped down upon the floor.
Only a few persons near the door
heard the impact, which did not in
terrupt the speaker.
The Rev. Thomas W. Gales, super
intendent of the Anti-Saloon League
in North Dakota, who is sponsoring
Spence's appearances in the state
and the Rev. N. Everett Hanson, pas
tor of the church, interpreted the egg
incident as “a timid protest against
the cause of prohibition,” in the
I words of the Methodist pastor.

THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE, WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 1931
LOWERING OF WAGE
SCALE SCORED BY
N.D. ASSOCIATION
National Retail Firms Attacked
by Retail Merchants Group
Secretary
Fargo, N. D., May 13.—(/P) —Charges
that national organizations of retail
firms have contributed to lower the
living standard by a low wage scale
are made in a letter sent oy the North
Dakota Retail Merchants’ association
to Andrew Mellon, secretary of the
treasury.
W. D. Powell, secretary of the state
Retail Merchants organization, told
Mr. Mellon it would not be possible
for independent retail firms to main
tain fair w r ages if the national organ
izations pay a lower scale. The letter
commented on Mr. Mellon’s recent
speech in which the secretary of the
treasury advocated an lmpro/cment
in the standard of living.
Mr. Powell's letter to Mr. Mellon
reads:
“The sentiments expressed in your
address to the foreign bankers at
tending the International Chamber
of Commerce, wherein you empha
sized the fact 'that standard of living
must be preserved at all costs’ and
further: ‘What we must strive for is
to Improve the standard, both here
and in other countries, as conditions
warrant. In fact the ultimate solu
tion of the world’s difficulties would
seem to lie in the possibility of build
ing up a higher standard.’
“The above statements, which I
quote from press reports of your ad
dress, prompts me to call attention to
a situation, having developed during
the last few years, which must shoul
der its portion of the responsibility
for the present strained conditions of
the country. I refer to the methods,
or system of particular retail organ
izations, national in scope, which has
persisted in holding down salaries of
its employes, in many cases at least,
below what it has been possible for a
man to support a family decently, or
for single persons to reasonably pro
vide for themselves.

firms referred to have evolved a ‘ro
tating’ system which provides for dis
charge and replacement, or turnover
of sales persons, in advance of the
period where our North Dakota mini
mum wage scale would become effec
tive.
“Information has come to my at
tention that certain of these national
retail organizations could not main
tain their business profitably and pay
their employes a wage commensurate
with even a fair basis, or standard of
living.
“The question is, will it be possible
for the Independent retail firms to
maintain fair wages to their em
ployes? The inequality along this line
cannot continue indefinitely. The
one must submit to an adjustment
upward, or the other downward.
“It is quite evident that the low
wage scale heretofore, and at the
present time being paid by these na
tional organizations of retail firms,
has contributed materially to a lower
living standard in many thousands of
homes. The danger, however, as it
would appear, is the influence bound
to radiate to various Industries out
side of the retail field.”
