IL ENTER Stabilization of Operations Seen Through Industrial Plywood Production. Stabilization of operations in the plywood depnrtjiu'nl at the Slythe- viltc plant of the Chicago Mill nnd !/imber corjwration on something approximating a capacity basis is expected by officers of Ihe company a-s a result of successful ex- I>criments in the production of high quality industrial plywoods, adapted to use in the furniture, automobile, building and other industries. Heretofore the locsl mill has produced plywood only for use in its own box shop, and unsettled business coonditions of Ihe past 18 months have affecled the demand for plywood shipping l>oxes to such nn exlenl that it has ben impossible to maintain consistent production schedule.-,. Now the general management of the corporation has allotted fifty per cent of the cs- pncity of the local plant to industrial plywoods, and such an encouraging response has been received from users of such material that confidence is felt thnt the problem of stabilizing operations will soon be solved. Competes With Cnast Product InrJustrinl plywoods are a new undertaking for the Chicago Mill nnd Lumber corporation. In the past certain of the company's divisions have produced what is known as industrial veneer, single ply material. for sale lo other wood products manufacturer.-, but the Bly- thcville plant is the firsl to under- tage the production of the glued product. Decision to enter the new field and to mtikc Blylheville the scene of the undcrlaking was. based largely on the success of experiments carried on by the local mill management in an endeavor to find means of maintaining full time operations here. Heretofore industrial plywoods tired in the middle west have been chiefly of Douglas fir. produced on the west coast. Experiments herp have developed a cypress plyv:co:l which it Is believed will prove equal or superior to fir for nearly all uses, and which will have the additional advantage in middle weslern markets of a freight rale just about half that, from The local mill Ihe Pacific coast.

They must be free of knots and have a tight surface, necessitating slower operation of the veneer ciiltin' machinery. Grealer care Is necessary in Ihe glueing process. Thc finished product, for most purposes, ii stained on one or both sides to r. specified thickness. It is not expected that Ihe weekly output of the iccnl mill will exceed six or seven carloads per week of Industrial plywood. In raw material and labor, however, this would be more than equal lo p weekly box production of four times as many carloads. It is not planned to permit Ihe new product to sup- plnnl more than half the box capacity, as manufacture of Ihe latter is necessary to provide an oul- Irt for material that fails to meet the quality requirements of industrial plywood.
