THURSDAY, MAT '4, BLTTRETTLLE, (ARK.) COURIER PAGE ELEVEN HAL lOYLE'S COLUMN Lumberman Had Trouble Until Frogs Were Run from Swamp VALSETZ, Ore., MET 4. (*)—Thi« is one of the most Isolated towns in America and a guy ha« to'be six feet tall to live here or risk drowning. Leaving out the moist month of April, it raised 72 Inches In the first 90 days of 1950. This 1* six feet vet water. "Of course, we measure rainfall here by the foot rather than the Inch," said Bert Thomas, a pudgy wx-six-footcr who has survived 30 € dult «nd soaking yars in this eartland of the big timber country. Bert Ii Lumbtrniin Bert is a lumberman. He Is general manager of the Valsetz Lumber Company, which owns some 30,000 acres of the 26 million acre belt of pacific forest land which Is the world's richest woodland. This belt, still half virgin, half second growth, producer one third of the home grown lumber marketed in the United States. Running a tough lumber camp of twelve hundred people brings a lot of problems. But. tht one that Bert likes to talk about, tongue In cheek. is how he solved the problem of the chlldre nbeginnlng to outnumber the trees. Homes Were Built "The company built 185 homes Ihen the requeslt (or lumber dropped In half. They don't need to build so many additions to their houses. "But, of course, the main thing is we don't lose any more baseball In the swamp." While Bert likes to Joke about Ihe btrth control problems o( the loggers, he can't very well joke about the lack ol birth control In Ihe rich Douglas fir forests his company is deslroying to build homes across America. "Tree Farm" There is a great "tree farm" program In progress here In the Pacific Northwest that will iu time make the forests self-renewing. "We believe in It completely, and we see that our cutover land Is seeded with new trees," said Bert. "But, Frankly, we got wise about 15 to 20 years loo late." , By that he meant that in hi companys 30,000 acres there will be a time lagc period of 25 to 50 yours when Ihe old crop of V ees is gone ,nd the young crop Is.still too small to market, it takes a Douglas fir 80 lo 1OT years to ripen for harvest. But the lumbermen out here are making a km[* term investment. They ?re seeding acreage now that Ihe premises described t* *>• ' Main St., Armorel, Mississippi County. The undersigned stales that he \s a citizen of Arkansas, of good moral diameter, that he ha* never been convicted ot » felony or other crime Involving moral turpitude; llial no license to sell beer by the undersigned has been revolted within five years last past; iuid that the undersigned ha* never been convicted of violating the laws of this slate, or any olher slate, re- lalive lo Ihe sale of alcoholic liquors.

"One row of houses bordered swamp. That swamp caused us all kinds of trouble. It was so close to the baseball diamond that cvery- time a guy made a long hit the ball would get lost in the swamp. "Not only that but every spring the loggers who lived In that row of houses would come to us and ask for lumber to build an addition lo Iheir homes. Wll, I didn't mind giving them the wood, but I couldn't figure out why the fellows living In this particular row of houses needed so much. "When I asked them, they said 'we just had another child, *ve iftpttii have more room, need i ^ft^ger house'." So Thomas checked the situation and found this. "The swamp they lived by was full of (rogs, and the frogs kept everybody awake half the night. Got Rid of From "So we drained it and got rid ol the Irogs. And you what; since can't pay off within the next half century. "We still think America will be here and needing lumber," said Bert. And he and others are planting the bare stripped mountainsides with faith and dollars against future payoff from the land llrey believe in. Angels Camp Paves Streets with Gold ' ANGELS CAMP, Calif..

One proposal Is to provide social security coverage only on farms cm- ployinc eight or more hands. In general, the farm organizations seem to favor taking in all farm workers. Some spokesmen (or the farmers, seeing social security benefits for city workers going up all the time, fear that farmers are getting the short end of the deal. In the 80th Congress. Rep. Bertrand W. Gearhart ol California sponsored a resolution which put house-to-house salesmen in the class of self-employed workers. The resolution passed, and it took 1,600,000 ol such workers out from under ordinary social security coverage although a previous Supreme Court decision had found lhat such workers should be considered as employ- es.
