ASSIGNMENT ^ Masonite Options - —(Continued from Page 11— "It still is necessary for vs to distribute our output on an aloca- tion basis, despite a substantial fh-: crease in productive capacity obtained last year through addition of a fourth manufacturing unit to our Laurel plant," he said. "Coupled with this is a desire to 'ifn- prove our service to all lumber, dealers and industrial users ,^,01?,., the west coast. We also believe that the potential industrial development of this region suggests a constantly growing market for our products in the next few years." In addition, production 'has reached a level, Mr. Holland said, where it becomes prudent fat. Masonite to extend its timber.le- sei-ves, and the redwood and fir ! of northern Califoniia are just AS 1 suitable for the Masonite process 'as second-growth yellow i>i|ie, j This is the principal source of raw material for the Laurel plant. Over the last decade ike company has acquired more than 170,000 acres of timber land in Mississippi which it operates under a scientific program of s^ec- tive cutting, replacement planting . and fire control. The Laurel plant/ however, still buys most of the . 'wood it uses from independent contractors. "In our California operations we plan to apply the same modern type of management to our own timber lands," Mr. Holland said,. "and to cooperate fully With all other agencies interested in sustaining and increasing forest resources, "We also intend to conduct an intensive research program on thri development of new uses for wood products and an educational campaign for the utilization,, pf waste timber ordinarily left in the woods by lumbering operations. Members of our development and research staff and,of our forestry staff will have charge of these activities." Mr. Holland pointed out that the start of hardboard production in Mendocino county will create a northern \Califomia market. No substantial commercial demand- now. exists in that territory for small logs and even sawmill slabs and edgings which Masonite can use for pulpwood. Construction of the heavy-dtity truck road into the Albion tract, • which probably will take a year to complete, will tap mtmy large stands of timber along the way. Most of tlieir owners, including the Standish & Hlckey Company and the Union Lumber Company, _ may become Masonite wood cori-" tractors in addition to using the road on a toll basis to transport saw logs. Mr. Holland said, the company could not have com^ , pleted plans lor building the roart without the cooperation of these lumber operators and other land owners. O. R.
