Progress Reported On Drive To Obtain Access Road To Grouse Creek Drainage Progress is being made toward obtaining a.public access road into the Grouse Creek drainage of Six Rivers National Forest from the west, according to a meeting of Natural Resources Committee of the Eureka Chamber of Commerce. During the session this week one firm said it would construct, at its own cost, three miles of road across its land, and three members of the Board of Supe visors indicated a favorable attitude toward the project. The timber industry in the Humboldt Bay area has pressed foi several years to obtain a road into the virgin Douglas fir area of Six Rivers National Forest. The Forest Service at present is pushing a north-south road from Willow Creek to Dinsmore's into the area, but Humboldt Bay area industries feel they could be competitive in bidding for the federal timber if a public access was available. Proposed .Agreements Larry Marshall, chairman of the Chamber committee, said the county Department of Public Works has sent letters and proposed agreements to the nine ma-, jor land owners involved. Marshall said the firm by which! he is employed, U. S. Plywood, has suggested some changes in the proposed agreement, but that his; company is willing to construe its portion of the road. "From the standpoint of U. S Plywood Corporation, I now have authorization from the board o directors to the extent that U. S Plywood would build that portion of the new road .that is.needed to cross the property up to a c "' e an agreement as proposed, maximum of three miles and thai at the time of completion of the building of the road, would turn it over to the county." Marshall noted the Chamber committee is pressing for opening of the access at little or no cost to the county. "From the standpoint of new construction, the road would be built either by those people whose land it crosses, or by the areas between and beyond where would be necessary to build to get to the Forest Service boundaries . . . " Said Unrealistic Sam Arness of Humboldt Fir, Inc., pointed out the ultimate cost of the road 'to the county would be practically nil if timber owners would take care of their own construction.

(UPD--Mar-iers and businessmen alike would kct quotas are the best answer benefit from the administration to the nation's farm woes, accord-jtarm ing to Agriculture Secretary Orville Freeman. Freeman and nuclear physicist Edward Teller were featured speakers at Friday night's session of the third annual University of Pacific business conference here. Congress is presently debating Freeman's farm program and the secretary admitted to the conference he had spent "three or .four hours" on the phone to Washington Friday discussing the bill's progress. In his talk, Freeman said farm- program. He called the answer to the farm problem his proposal to have growers of each crop limit their production.

Navy Jet Soars To New Mark, 19 Miles In 6 Mins. POINT MOGU, Calif. (UPD The Navy today claims a world record speed climb for its F4H-1 Phanton II supersonic jet. The Navy reported Friday that a Phantom piloted by Lt. Cmdr. Del W. Nordberg, 39, Orlando, Fla., climbed to 98,425 feet, or 19 miles, from a dead stop in six minutes. A spokesman said the flight was made Thursday, but figures were not computed until 1 Friday. The previous record is held by an Air Force F104 which made the flight December, 1948, at this same naval air station 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles. That record was 904 seconds or about 15 minutes. Nordberg's record will be submitted for authentication by the U. S. National Aeronautic Association with the Federal Aeronau- tiquc Internationale. The Navy also claims speed climb marks for 65,616 feet in 178.5 seconds, 82,021 feet in 230.44 seconds. vith Freeman, Teller expressed he hope that some way eventual- y could be found for the United tales to use its great food surplus as a. weapon in the cold war. use in the farming of the future. He said that isotopes already vere beginning to enable" re- earchers to learn new facts about such things as soils, fer- .iilzers, and sprays. Governor Blasts Birchers Before College Students LOS ANGELES (UPD -- Gov. Edmund G. Brown has called on law students to reject the John Birch Society and recognize it for what it is. "a conspiratorial group devoted to the. big lie and the big smear." Speaking at a law review banquet Friday night al (he University of Southern California. Brown said the society has condemned judges as Communist spies or worse when they had followed their consciences rather t h a n "the ready-made line of radica right." Brown, on a campaign tour in Southern California prior to taking a short vacation in Mexico, claimed the society and othci rightists have made "major inroads" in the Republican party and cited what he called a heavy vote of Ihc radical rightists against U.

"On the other hand, before we would exe there would have . to be some changes made to salisfy the lega thinking of Ihe company and some remuneralion paid somewhere.' W. Spinney, supervisor ol Six Rivers Nalional Forest, noted timber sold by the Forest Service is appraised to the nearest mill, which in view of the Willow Creek- Dinsmore road would be Willow Creek. The forest supervisor made three points: Already Tapped 1--The 45,000-acre drainage is :apped and will be further tapped 'rom the eastern slope. One cannot assume that once the access road is conslrucled Ihe limber willl come to the Bay area. . 2--The 25-mile haul to Willow Creek will be the basis for appraisal and mills in that area can handle the timber. 3--The Forest Service has a policy to contribute as much as )ossible to the local economy and already has reached its al- owable cut in the Tish Tang, Lower Trinily and Orleans Ranger )istricts. Should the access road ic constructed it would be into an area in which 12.5 million board feet of timber per year| could be cut on a sustained yield! asis. E. M. Pellerscn, chairman of he Humboldi Board of. Super- isors, said it is his feeling that f the Grouse Creek access road can be economically justified, and f funds are available, the county should go ahead and build the road. "This road will give access to public forests and the Bounty is lot considering it on any private before. If this group would work something out, I would go along with it.". Charles Shaller, director of- public works, noted the county would not improve the proposed access road to as high a standard as it might in other locations since the cost would be about $5000 per mile. Instead, the county would im prove the drainage and maintenance factors, bul could nol do any major realigning. Recreational use of the road also came in for comment by Shaller. "This is a point worth mentioning. If the density of travel by occasional visitors becomes great enough to demand improve ment of Ihe road, il might become justifiable." As the session closed, Marshall noted the committee would be \ept up to date on progress of talks with cerncd. Says Justified Supervisor Norman Robertson commented on needed improvements to existing county road from Bald Mountain House to Highway 299. He slated: "This road -- from Bald Moun- While not taking sharp issue lain House lo Highway 299 -- will have to be done anyway and is proposed for future budgets.

U.S. Steel's decision was an-, nounced by its president, Leslie B. Wortliington. within 72 hours after the increase was disclosed and 24 hours after it was publicly defended as a must. Kennedy counter-allacked on at least three fronts. , First, he blasted the steel price increases at his Wednesday news conference in some of the toughest language he has ever used. Second, the Justice Department legan a grand jury inquiry into possible antitrust violations and iubpoenaed U.S. Steel records in he speediest such response to a price increase in history. Third, he Pentagon said it would buy steel for defense needs from the producers who did not raise irices. It awarded a contract for 11,000 tons of .high-grade steel to a holdout, Liikens Steel Co. of Coatesville, Pa. It was an order worth between $5 'and 56 million :hat normally would have been shared with U.S. Steel. This triple play, along with equally fast-paced behind-the- scenes attempts lo scuttle the price rise, helped to turn Ihe tide. Salvation Army Sued For Billboard Advertising ANSWER MIR CHRISTMAS PRAYERS A PUBLIC SERVICE Of O U T D O O R ADV[f?ti|lNC SAN FRANCISCO--A San Francisco housewife sued the Salvation Army for $25,000 Friday because she didn't like seeing her picture on fund-raising billboards. Mrs. Silvia King, 29, said she didn't dream she would wind up in billboard ads when the picture (shown) was taken in 1958. She and her son, Luis, i now 7, were then staying at the Army's Pinehurst Lodge for Women here. The posters that blossomed here last December carried this plea under the picture of Mrs. King and Luis.

Sir Texas Moves In On Billy Sol Operations PECOS, Tex. I UPD--Atty. Gen. Wilson today moved state ti anti-trust hearings into the West Texas hometown of federally indicted fertilizer king Billie Sol Estes. The latest in a series of hearings, in the form of courts of inquiry to develop evidence, came as the FBI took up an investigation of Esles' relationship with their federal farm officials. Emery E. Jacobs, husky deputy administrator of the Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service, handed in his resignation Friday to Secretary of Agriculture Orville Freeman because of an accusation Estes bought him 51,433 worth of suits and shoes at Dallas specialty store. He denied the accusation, said lie paid for the clothing himself, Estes he i: i f f i ' and wants to appear before a board of inquiry to clear his Wilson extended him an open invitation. No definite time was immediately set for Jacobs .0 appear. FBI to Check "In my opinion, he (Jacobs) is guilty," Wilson said. "We want liim to testify to all his relationships with Billie Sol Estes, especially .as to how Billie Sol managed to secure the storage ol (U.S.) Commodity Credit Corp. grain," Wilson said. A USD \ spokesman in Washington said it had turned information over to the FBI that was developed in a departmental probe. The spokesman said the FBI will continue checking. A government department does not normally refer information to the FBI unless'it believed there is possible grounds for prosecution. Wilson called 11 witnesses to testify at today's hearing. He not cull Estes because to force him to testify would mean a promise of immunity' from prosecution. Estes and three associates are al- ready under federal indictment on 57 counts of fraud and conspiracy involving his multi-million dollar fertilizer operation. Estate in Kcceivership Estes' crumbling farm empire, once estimated to be worth a gross of $150 million, has been put into tlie hands of a receiver. Esles admits he is $20 million in debt. Harry Moore, an El Paso bank- · who was named receiver, sol up shop Friday in Pecos and saic is talking to a national audilhg irm which may he hired to make a complete check of Esles' holdings. Moore is trying to raise a $10 million bond demanded by U. S. Department of Agriculture if the government is to continue sloring grain in Esles' grain elevators. The elevators hold a total of 54 million bushels, and now have an estimated $46 million worth of wheat and milo stored in them. C. H. Moseley, director of the district Commodity Stabil- izalion office, Friday gave the Estes elevators a clean bill health from the standpoinl quantity and quality. did Dallas HUMBOLDT STANDARD Saturday, April 14, 1962, P.
