California on Oct. 27. Representing the Soroptimist Club of Greenville were Ann Bid- well. President; Ruth Cliff. Dele- gate; and Marjorie Casteel, Alter- hate Delegate. Inspiring talks on Soroptimism were given by Regional and Dis- trict Directors of the Soroptimist Clubs. The following are only a few of the projects undertaken by the organization and the seI"Vices being rendered to the communities at home and abroad. Through a fellowship fund. ex- ceptional women students have been given grants of money en- abling them to continue their studies in the professions. 380 members of the Southwestern Re- gion have willed their eyes that others might see. All but two clubs of this Region have joined the American Association of United Nations. Contacts have been es- tablished between American and overseas clubs for the purpose of furthering international under- standing and many clubs are send- ing gifts to their overseas sisters. Financial aid is being given to a women's medical college by the American Federation of Soropti- mist Clubs. In addition to this, each club has its own local pro- jects. The Greenville Delegates brought back to their Club a bet- ter understanding of the world scope of Soroptimism. THREE-YEAR SURVEY OF DEER RANGES TO ST/glT SOON Representatives of three State and Federal agencies have com- )leted plans for a research pro- ject to determine the revegetation possibilities of overbfowsed deer ranges in northeastern California. The three-year survey is ex- pected to get under way next spring, and will 'be financed large- ly with California's share of Fed- eral tax monies on firearms and ammunition under the Pittman- Robertson Act Cooperating agen cies are the California Depart- ment of Fish and Game, U. S. Forest Service. and the Califor- nia Forest and Range Experiment Station. ,August L. Hormay of the Ex- neriment Station stated that the group will consider artificial re seeding of bitterbrush and other deer browse species, but that re- seeding is not believed to be a cure-all for critical range deplet- ion. It is more important, he as- serted, to take care of existing browse stands, rather than to re- seed. It takes about 25 years under ideal conditions to get any sort of replacement of bitterbrush stand, Hormay said, according to the best available knowledge. These ideal conditions should in- clude some degree of protection from livestock and deer grazing, he believes.

MERCHANTS 90% F0r! 10% Against"00 Railroad workers are represented by 23 standard unions. By mutual agreement, 20 of these unmns--com- prisiny about 1,200,000 men, or more than 90cry--are working under wages and rules by them and the railroads. But leaders of three only about 130,000 men, or less than lO--still refuse, after o more than a year of rgotmtions, to accept similar wage and rules agreedJents. These are even mor) favorable than the terms recommended by the Emer- gency Board appointed by the President. Time ttle S ere Yes, it certainly seems to be finally about time that the leaders of the three unions stop their delaying tactics--their quibbling. But the leaders of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Order of Railway Conductors continue to refuse. They continue a course of diilying and dallying. It is definitely time to On June 15, 1950, an Emergency Board appointed by the. President under the terms of the Railway Labor Act--an Act largely fathered by the unions themselves --made its recommendations on certain wage and working conditions ("rules" in railroad language) which had been in dis- pute between employes and the railroads. More Than 90 of'Employes Accept Since then, terms equal to or better than the Board recommendations have been a_ccepted by about 1,200,000 rd em- ployes--more than 90 of the  of all workers. They are represented by 20 of the 23 standard railroad unions. Less Than 10o Refuse But three unions--with about 130,000 men, or less than 10 of the totaI--have refused to accept, even after months of negotiations. These three unions are the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen, and the Order of Railway Conductors. These are three of the so- called "operating" unions. Already the highest paid men in the industry, their leaders demand still further advantages over other workers. In all, there are about 270,000 operating employes. But not all of them, by any means, are represented by BLE, BLF&E, or ORC. As a matter of fact, less than haif--132,000 to be exact--are in these three unions. More than half--about 140,000--are in other unions, principally the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen. What makes the whole situation so hard to understand is that these 140,000 op- erating employes are working under wages and rules which the leaders of the other 130,000 say they cannot agree to. What Do the Railroads Offer? They offer these three unions the same settlement which was contained in a Mem- orandum of Agreement signed at theWhite House on December 21, 1950, by four 'brotherhoods and the railroads. Later these brotherhoods sought to repudiate this agreement. But on May 25, 1951, the Brother_hood of Railroad Trainmen igned a complete agreement carrying out the principles of the Memorandum Agreement of December 21. They have been working under this agreement since May 25. What About Wages? Under the terms of the agreement, yard engineers, firemen and conductors would now be receiving a wage increase of $.34 an hour ($2.72 a day) and road engimmrs, firemen and conductors would now be re- eeiving an increase of 19 cents an hour ($1.56 per day). Large sums of retroactive pay have already accrned and ifth e agree- ment is carried out, will be paid promptly. What About "Cost of Living" Increases? The White House Agreement includes an "escalator" clause under which wages will be geared to changes in the Government's cost-of-living index. Two such increases --April and July, 1951 --have already been paid to the 90 of railroad employes cov- ered by signed agreements. , What About the 40.Hour Week ? The White House Agreement calls for the establishment of the 40-hour week in prin- ciple, for employes in yard service. The employes can have it any tithe after Jan- uary 1, 1952, provided the manpower sit- uation is such that the railroads can get enough pen to perform the work with reasonable regularity at straight time rates. If the parties do not agree on the _question of availability of manpower, the White House Agreement provides arbitra- tion by areferee appointed by the President. What Else Do the Union Leaders Demand ? The continued quibbling of the leaders of the three unions has to do principally with We  pub_ this and other advesements ,tkyou, at fitt hand about matters which are important to everybody. rules changes, which have ah'eady been dmmtO by the Brotherhood of Railroad en. Of these, tim principal one seems to be that having to do with so- called "interdivisional service"--runs which take in two or more sec[z'rity dis- tricts. The union leaders would bar progress efficiency in the industry, and better service to the public, by maintaining a situation where they can arbitrarily stop a railroad from establishing such inter- divisional runs. The carriers propose that if a railroad wishes to set up an inter- divisional run, the railroad and the unions should try to agree on such run and the conditions which should surround its es- tablishment, and if the railroad and the unions can't agree, the matter will be sub- mitted to arbitration. But the three union leaders still refuse. Rules Can Be Arbitrated The railroads have not only offered these three unions the same rules agreed to by the BRT and covered by the White House Agreement, but have even agreed to sub- t such rules to arbitration. The Industry Pattern Is Fixed With the pattern so firmly established in the railroad industry, it seems fair to sug- gest that the leaders of BLE, BLF&E, and ORC stop their quibbling and take action to make the railroad labor picture 100 complete. Certainly today's eco- nomic and international situation calls for a united front. And certainly no good rea- son has been advanced why these three unions should be preferred over all other railroad employes, J
