PAGE ~IX Monroe Monitor, Thuxsday, Dgc. I1, 1958 OLYMPIA Undoubtedly there will be some form of legislation introduced in the coming legislative session to regulate labor unions. The State Labor Council, AFL-CIO, is re- ported to feel that some con- structive legislation would be a good thing if it would do away with recurring attempts to get a fight-to-work measure approved at the polls. Labor's time and funds have been tied up in fight- ing the initiatives to such an ex- tent that it has been unable to move ahead satisfactorily on oth- er fronts. Most talked about is a "little Kennedy-Ires bill," which would provide for secret ballots in union elections and supervision of union funds. Labor says that basically 95 per cent of the unions now provide for a secret ballot in elections, and also pro- per accounting with financial statements available for rank and file members. Union Shop Recognition Things which have been talked about in labor circles also in- "clude proposal for a Constitution- al amendment which would state Mr. and Mrs. Jake Joyce of Olympia were here last weekend to visit her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Julius Kast. Mr. Kast is a patient at present in Swedish Hospital, Se- attle, and his friends are hoping for his sp0~ty recovery. Bill Zweigert of the Everett Christian Missionary Alliance was guest speaker when the Kings Teens met Monday evening at the George Carey home in Park Place.

Frank, Gene Ernster and Willis George, Super- intendent of Schools Thoma~ E. Marsden, and Mrs. Ross DeMon- brun and Mrs. Arne Charles of the Monroe Parent-Teachers Assn. at- tended a two day conference at the Olympic Hotel in Seattle last week. The conference, a state-wide af- fair, was held for the purpose of setting up a program for the evalu- ation of schools, their programs, curriculum, and .other activities. The Seattle meeting served as a basis for the Monroe group upon which they will hold another meet- ing at a later date. The local meet- ing will be co-sponsored by the P-TA. ROUND-UP that it is public policy to recog- nize the union shop. However, this would require a 2-3 vote of the legislature plus a vote of the people which presents difficul- ties. Another is a legislative bill which would do the same thing, make recognition of the union shop a matter of public policy. H o w e v e r, any succeeding legis- lature could wipe this out. Also such a bill would lend itself to amendment by the opposing for. ces who undoubtedly would try to turn it into a right-to-work bill and gain by legislative enact- ment what the people t~urned down at the polls on November 4. Pollution Harold Miller, new Pollution. C o n t r o 1 Commission director, in a report to Governor Rosellini last week, said that both munici- palities and industry, taken as a whole, are doing a commendable and satisfactory job in cleaning up pollution. He said that of 1100 industries which produce liquid waste, 900 are operating under permanent five - year permits, which means they have com- plied with the law. Another 150 industries which have temporary permits are working on their problems. The remaining 50 in- dustries are new ones whose ap- plications for permits are in the course of being processed. Of 235 municipalities which have city, "town or district sewer systems, Miller said, 199 have sewage treatment facilities either operating or ready to operate. Another 18 are in the process of constructing systems. Miller said most of the pollution control problems are on the east side of Puget Sound. Seattle now has an $80 million dollar sewage treat- ment program and Metropolitan district set up. Tacoma has a $30 million program. Everett is about ready to start operating a treat- ment plant. Bellingham is study- ing the needs of that area. Miller said that in four to six years the problems should be licked until population growth dictates fur- ther expansion of existing facili- ties.
