COMPANIES MERGE Six years later, their 'company was merged with the White and Plummer and Noyo Lumber companies to form the Union Lumber Company which Johnson served as president for 48 years, retiring in 1939. At that time he became chairman of the board and his son, Otis, succeeded him. A leader in the lumber industry, Johnson was chosen in 1933 to represent it in code authority meetings for the NRA. He was a member of the Pacific Union club and the Commonwealth club. SON SURVIVES His wife, who died in 1932, was the former Mary Conness, daughter of former U.S.

Senator John Conness of California. Besides his son, he is survived by two sisters, Miss Jeanette Johnson of New York and Mrs. Howard Abbott of Minneapolis, Arbitrator Anthony G. Rourke. The agreement ended a strike.

The corporation, Levy contended, failed to rehire many of the union employees, who. were outnumbered by nonunion workers. The union asked O'Rourke to arbitrate the rehiring issue, and he ruled in favor of the union. Superior Judge Lewis H. Smith of Los Angeles declined to sign an order requiring enforcment of the arbitration award, declaring his court was without jurisdiction.
