The State labor commissioner's depart
ment contemplates several chanfies
the method of gathering statistics for
the department next year. The law gov-
erning the department is so broad that
it requires the gathering of statistics
covering every industrial enterprise In
the State. Other departments such as
the State mining department, nnd the
corporation commlsslonn ure required to
gnther statistics affecting railroads, tel-
ephone companies, oil and coal mining
properties, which has resulted In a du-
plication of statist^ in these classes
The labor commissioner contemplates
discontinuation of the compiling of sta-
tistics, which properly fall under the su-
pervision of the corporation commission
and State mining departments with the
exception as to those relating to the
number and class of employes engaged in
Assistant Labor Commissioner Ashton
stated today that the labor department
may next year gather statistics from the
produce houses on the amount of ft
products consumed In the State giving
the proportion that is grown in Okla
homa, and that which Is shipped In
These figures in connection with the In
formation gathered by the State board
of ngriculturo as to the amount of pro-
duction would prove valuable as an In-
ducement to growers to come to Okla-
homa and raise products of which there
is a big shortage In the home supply.
Statistics relating to farm labor will
also probably be added to tho labor com*
mlasloners' report for next year.
