Washington Logger Tops Events At Sutherlin Fete
It's all over but the shouting as
far as Sutherlin Timber Days is
concerned but the echos of axe
on wood and power saws slicing
through logs still ring throughout
the town following one of the most
successful timber events ever
staged in the Sutherlin community.
Beginning with the crowning of
Queen Charlene Forney at Friday
night's dance at the legion Hall
and resuming Saturday morning
with two parade events, the Kid
dies Parade and the Grand Par
ade, there was no let-up in the
pace of activities until the final
awards were made late Sunday

B. C. Fishermen
Return To Boars
About 6,000 British Columbia sal
mon net fishermen were back on
the fishing grounds today after the
United Fishermen and Allied
Workers Union called off a strike
Saturday over salmon prices.
The strike which bogan 22 days
ago cost the industry an estimated
$10 million.
Union Secretary Homer Stevens
announced that fishermen had vot
ed 86 per cent in favor of accept
ing a recommendation that the
dispute with the B.C. Fisheries
Association be referred to a single
arbitrator and that fishing be re
sumed al 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
The union and the Fisheries
Association have not been able to
agree on the matters to be re
ferred to the arbitrator, but the
two sides will attempt to settle
this in further meetings.
Federal Fisheries Minister H.J.
Robichaud and B. C. Labor Min
ister Leslie Peterson said if the
two sides cannot agree on the
terms of arbitration, then this
mutter should also be referred to
the arbitrator.
FIRST PLACE WINNER in the religious division for the Timber Days parade was this
entry sponsored by the Methodist Church. Theme of this entry was "Religion on the Ore
gon Trail."
