.I»A(5EEI<SHr DISPATCP DEMO^'XT; UKIAH, CALIf^ORNIA PRroAY, APfelL 30, 1948 Background Facts of S f Masonite Company •' Masonite Corporation, which recently revealed plan? to establish ii plant near Ulclah, is the world's largest nvanufacturer' of woo^ fiber hardboard. The company's .main plant at Laurel, Mississippi, has been in operation nearly 22 years. Net sales in 1947 exceeded $2S,000,000. The number of em- IJloyees is approximately 3300. Hardboard is the generic name for very dense, hard and smooth 'p&ssed wood fiber board. Mason­ ite, the pioneer in the hatdboard field, malies various types which .differ in regard to appearance, 'ttiltkness, strength, hardness, density! and other physical properties. 'They have a wide range of uses in .\be building field and as a basic material in hundreds of industrial' products. Fiber used in their man- u'facture is obtained principally from small logs that have little or or no value in conventional lumbering operations. Even sawmill waste, such as slabs and edgings, can be used Jn the Masonite explosion process. In addition to its hardboard products, the company makes at Chicago a flexible kraft cellulose fiber Insulation in both pajiel and jbl'anket forms. The general offices also are in Chicago. Eugene Holland is president of Masonite Corporation. Other prin- 'Clpal executives include .T. M. Coates, vice president in charge of operations; E. L, Saberson, vice ^•president and advisecto the president; W. G. Stromquist, vice president In charge of sales; C. H. West- piialen, vice president and general .manager of the Laurel plant, and ^en O- Anderson, treasurer. The company's,: pjans for- expansion f o the west 'coast, announced late in March, included purchase of more thR«ij,!\9,000'acres'of redwood timber in Mendocino county and a plant site of approximately 100 acres about two miles north of Ukiah. Masonite will build a private, high-speed truck road from the mill site into its timberland. Owners of other large tracts of timber along this 30-mile rbad are expected to use it on a toll basis. The general manager of Mason­ ite Corporation's newly acquired properties In Mendocino county is E. T. F. Wohlenberg, formerly of Portland, Oregon. He had been forest counSel for the Western Forestry and Conservation Association since 1945. "Masonite is a comparatively young organization, It was incorporated August 31, 1925, under the laws of Delaware, apd the Laurel plant began operation September 2, 1926. But its growth has been as dramatic as its origin was romantic. It all started as an idea in the mind of'one man. That man was 'William H. Mason, inventor of the Masonite process, who was a vice president of the company at the time of his death at Laurel in 1940. He was a research scientist and an authority on wood who earlier in his career had been associated for many years with Thomas A. Edison. Mason had. Worked out ani, improved method for extracting tur- pfentine and resin from lumber, and he went to Mississippi in 1920 to go into that business. One of these plants was operated in connection with the Laurel sawmill of th;e Wausau Southern Lumber Company. When the big saw mills b^an to close down as the timber supply diminished, he turned to —(Continued on Page 6)— SEENATPRM The Sonoma county campaign of Hubert B. Scudder for congress shifted Into high gear, following a meeting over the weekend of half a hundred supporters from all parts of the county Scudder for. Congress headquarters in Santa Rosa. The meeting, a kick-off for an Intensive countywide campaign, was presided over by Leroy Lounibos, prominent Petaluma attorney and county chairman of the Scudder campaign committee. Among the speakers were George Hoberg, former' president of the Redwood Empire< Association, who is chairman of the Scudder campaign committee for the 11 counties of the First district. Candidate Scudder personally reported on a most encouraging trip through most counties of the district. Other counties, he said, will be covered during the week. Elzo Mcpiuskey, ch>airman of the Santa Rosa committee, told of organization activities in t)iis area. He reported, as an outstanding Democrat, that in this non-partisan primary campaign all looks , well for the election of Scudder at the June 1 primary. This prophecy gained weight as each of the following reported on activities within their respective precincts: Fred J. Ollva, Maxwell R. McMillan, Peter J. Wegesser, Leland Guglimetti, J. W. Rutherford and Walter Price. Equally encouraging reports indicating the election of Scudder at the primaries came from 'a Sebaso- pol delegration, whose .spokesmen were Lewis R. Hart, Dr. A. P. Sweetnam, A. M. Garcia, Russell Taylor, Carl Silveira, James O'Connell and Archie Butler. wiiiirsNEWs —(Contliired irotn Page 7)— ; mobile, ReniD Berbacka and Erkki Petttnen were-.'fined .$20 each'byl the' same police judgo.

Retired Hardioare Merchant Hem'Found Pleasure In Living On Mountain Ranch Hopland Man Buys Carl Haehl Ranch Showdown Sought • —(Continued from Page 1)— told him, he said, that the state •would approve this and that state money is appropriated for such ^purposes from year to year. Federal aid for hospital construction is available for the next five years.• It will also be determined at the' meeting in Sacramento to what extent the state will interfere if the county decides to build with its own funds. Board members believe such a plan would also have to have full state approval. The county has $75,000 in its hospital construction fund, could vote another $20,000 to $2S,000 in the new budget and probably complete the ilnancing >yith a bond issue, the board members said. Sharp differences in the cost of operating private and county hospitals was illustrated when Dr. Babcock reported present costs in the Willits hospital are now $12.50 per patient per day compared with $4.60 in 1939. Dr. Cleland's figures revealed the county spends an average of $2.09 per bed per day and that this cost has risen from $1.00 in 1939. . A 100-bed hospital wiU be adequate for the next 50 years, according to Dr. Cleland. Supervisor Guy Richwine ridiculed the state's figure of an increase to 100,000 population in this county within the next few years. Attorney Henry Spurr, president of the planning commission, will accompany Chairman Haehl and Supervisors Rcdwine and Safford to Sacramento. Also in the group ^Vlll be Dr. Cleland, and Caulkins will meet them there. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Ehrman of Hopland have purchased the Carl Haehl ranch of 522 acres north and west of Cloverdale, a property that had been in the Haehl'fam­ ily for many' years, first belonging to Conrad Haehl, father of Carl Haehl who died about year and a half ago. Since his death Mrs. Haehl has been living in San Francisco. A portion of the ranch, about 10 acres in the Cloverdale city limits, was Isold prior to Haehl's death . and is now known as the Haehl subdivision. On the re maining acreage sold to' the Ehr- mans are prunes, vineyard, hay- land and a winery. Sale of tlie property included the livestock. The new o^wners plan improvements on the place and will make their home there. Ukiah Merchants In Action May 9 The Ukiah Merchants have picked Sunday, May 9, as the date when they will go into action on the home lot in the national,pastime.

Not, otxly was talent displayedr but so was a lot of beauty and this is in reference to the charming majorettes. It is human to err^ And we are human. Consequently, after associating the name of Val Petersen with politics and W. D. Ford ^o many times, recently, the name Val Petersen was printed in the April 26 issue instead of. that of George Petersen. Regardless of the.excuses made George Petersen, not Val Petersen, as a member of the Lions and will, assist the other Lions mentioned in making the scheduled ladies night a success; and this, same George Petersen was named among those to attend the nrieetingat Hobergs. With a flaming red, countenance!, gentlemen, I offer a sincere apology and on that note make an ungracious exit. Fred Crow wh05.re|;ired?';trom the Jjatdware .business "inEm­ eryville 10 • yeprs, ago has/hever found any r^pason.to- regret it, lior has he 'found, time heavy on his hands. The Reason for this contentment Isr'a 150-acre, timbered mountaiaranch;on,the Eel river; just''-below, ;Lower Dam where life is .varied and interesting. ' •-,. ... He lives in' the resort- country where hurdling is right up the mountainside and fishing is a matter of steppihg down to the creek — in season,,of course. To keep, from growing tired of his own company -he has: pet deer, and from an aviary comes the singing of birds. Once, seven.years ago, while his sister,- Mrs. Effie'-Brittingham, was living at the ranch 18 inches of s?io\v kespt themj^gw- bpund. • Now she and-jher.^hus-: band have also- bought, a-.'^^place and live nearby; • ' Among, the interesting things tha't' have-happened recently to keep him from'boredom, was the sight illusttatqd in the pici ture. Watering his lawn, he left the .sprinkler on all night and in the morning an enormous white heart decorated the yard. The water had-frozen in lacy crystals. . , Hartstone and Eel River lodges are not far from his ranch and Stotts place is another nearby resort. He: comes, to Ukiah several times a month to phop and see people and if you meet him on the street, v'hite haired, pleasantly rosy of countenance, he's apt to tell you he's found the secret of contentment for the man -who retires — a mountain ranch on the Eel, river. , -A^ Potter^alley News Delegates To Baptist Meet In Fort Bragg Delegates from BajJtlst churches in. this area attended the Clear Lake Baptist association's annual meeting in Fort Bragg Monday and Tuesday for business conferences.

Disabled Vets FORT BRAGG, April 22.—For about 27 years the Disabled American Veterans, have been conducting a fight for the disabled veteran and his dependents. They have gone to bat on every front and are responsible for Improved conditions which disable'd veterans take advantage of today. The D.A.V.'can carry on only so long as disabled veterans channel their voices and their members iia- to one group. Wnen we were in the service we had one common purpose—to whip the tar out of the Germans and Japs. We must be united today to see that the disabled veteran is not the "forgotten man," and that he and his family do not suffer. Did you ever hear pf the Economy Act of 1933? A very effective group of people who didn't dissipate their strength got together and pushed through Congress a bill that cut veterans' benefits to shreds. A similar group is at work today. They are* at work to cut the benefits of the disabled veterans unde:f the pretense of government economy. As much as any group in the United States the D.A.'V. stands for government economy, but not at the expense of the war-handicapped ex-serviceman. If the disabled veteran is to prevent another "economy act' he must make his group as strong as the group fighting him. , If you are one of the million veterans eligible for membership there is a D.A.'V. chapter >which includes all of Mendocino county that meets the second Thursday evening and the fourth Sunday afternoon of each month at 'Veterans Memorial building in Fort Bragg. Any veteran interested may contact Ture West, commander, or W. D. Main, acting ajdutant, both of Fort Bragg, or Tobe Arvola, senior vice commander, o£ Mendocino City. G. L.
