12 The News-Review, Roseburg, Or. Sal., Nov. 5, 1949
During Brief Activity Period
In Roseburg Are Set Forth
The Roseburg YMCA, as an association with a general secretary,
started in June of this year. Many things have been accomplished
since then by this organization. The "Y's" first project was to
arrange and conduct a city-wide men's tennis tournament. A junior
' men s tournament was also conducted on request.
Recognizing the number of
young children who did not get
to hear many stories during the
summer, the YMCA undertook to
get the stories to the children. An
arrangement was made with
KRNR for radio time and sever
al community women asreed to
tell the stories. Out of this ar
rangement came the "YMCA
Children's Story Hour" heard ev
ery Monday arid Wednesday for
six weeks this summer.
Later In the summer the "Y"
promoted the idea of a "Day
Camp" and in this way many
boys got a chance to take some
trips, to hike, participate In
sports and take part in different
activities. "Old Wooden Face,"
organized along the same lines as
the "Day-Camp," took place on
Saturdays. This was a game to
test the pitching skill of the
younger ooys. inose wno iinisnea

land and Roseburg through vol

right to send a certain number
of boys to this camp every year.

PICTURED HERE is a huge crane in use by the Roseburg Lumber company to cold deck logs at
its Dillard mill. These logs have been hauled to the pond by truck, dumped and floated to the
crane set by men with pike poles, calked boots and fine sense of balance. The logs are ricked
in decks 20 to 30 feet high, where they will remain until needed for sawing. The logs used at
this mill are fir and are representative in size of those used by the industry in this locality.

Travel Difficulties, Poorer
Diamond Lake Fishing Cut
Number Of Forest Visitors
Visitors to the Umpqua National forest during the 1949 season
numbered more than 60,000, reports M. M. Nelson, forest supervisor.
Although the total represents a
drop of about 18 percent from
the 1948 season, the decrease is
easily attributable to travel dif
ficulties over the North Umpqua
road where construction work
limited traffic to a few hours
each day. The decline of fishing
at Diamond lake also had its ef
fect, Nelson reports. Diamond
lake, Nelson pointed out, is the
chief tourist attraction of the
Umpqua forest and fishing con
ditions materially influence tour
ist use oi tne recreational re
sources of the area.
While lake fishing declined, ex
cellent sports angling was avail
able in the North Umpqua river
and served to partially offset the
drop in visitors to the lake.
District rangers estimate that
46,000 people used the public
camps maintained by the forest
service, Nelson slates. Approxi
mately 11,000 persons used re
sorts and summer homes, a
slightly higher figure than last
year. Approximately 8.000 per
sons drove through the forest to
enjoy its scenery and environ
ment. Fishing Chief Magnet
"Observations indicate that he
vast majority of visitors to the
forest are attracted by fishing,
Nelson said. "The proof is foun
in the fact thft more than 80 per
cent of the visitors were drawn to
Diamond lake and the North
Umpqua river. It is apparent that
the decrease in tourists the past
two years can be directly attrib
uted to decline in sports fishing.''
The Wolf Creek forest camp on
Little river was operated on a
charge basis during the past year
as an experiment designed to
learn whether forest visitors
want some camps where, for a
small fee, they will have bene
fits of camp service and super
vision. Little criticism was re
ceived from the public and there
appeared to be no material de
crease in usage, Nelson reports.
The forest service, he said, has
been experimenting generally
with fee camps, but plans at all
times to retain ample free camp
installations to serve those who
do not desire the "extras" pro
vided at camps where fees are
