MERCER-FRASER Has the MEN, ENGINEERS and EQUIPMENT To Do Your Job RIGHT Grading Meet Thursday PORTLAND -- The largest number of lumbermen ever to gather on the West Coast will meet in Portland Thursday at the Multnomah Hotel for an all-day session to consider a grade simplification and standardization program. "We expect," said H. V. Simpson, manager of the West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau, "between 400 and 500 lumber manufacturers from the Douglas fir producing regions of Oregon, Washington and California. "What is proposed," he said, "is a simplification of our grading rules to conform to a national program. The idea back of this movement is to make it easier to ise our lumber and easier to promote lumber in competition with other materials. We propose to ;slablish simplified grades designed closer to end use and which will eliminate much of the conta slon which buyers have today. "Time prevents," Simpson point ed out, "our taking this program throughout the Douglas fir regioi to our usual 16 district meetings So. this Portland meeting is tin only time mlllmen will get i chance to be heard." At this meeting, members o the committee conducting natlona negotiations will be present, a; well as the executive commiltei of West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau. This is the one opportuni ty, Simpson said, to hear the pro posal as if presently stands fullj discussed. Giving a preview of what th' lumbermen will hear, Simpsoi said some grade names will b changed, some grades will be con solidatcd, some new use grade are proposed, some standard size will bo consolidated, some ne\ use grades are proposed, som standard sizes will be change and in general west coast grade will conform to national grade and designations to take confusio out of lumber marketing and pro Willits Sawmill To Be Closed by Union Lumber FORT BRAQG -- Unlnn Lumber Company President C. Russell Johnson announced that the company will close down the WillitB south plant sawmill effective at the end of shift Friday, April 27. "This action," Johnson slated, "is being taltcn regretfully and only after a very careful weighing of the effect it will have on all employes, the community, and the company. There arc two primary reasons which necessitate our decision to close the South Plant saw mil! operation." "One is the desired goal to manage our timberlands on a permanent basis and this requires that we reduce our timber harvest and hence our manufacturing operations to an annual volume which will approximate the timber grow- For The Lowest Prices On STEEL Phone HI '] Ml 101 H.
