Georgia-Pacific Corp.. and the The Federal Mediation Service
two lumber unions signed an
agreement calling for an approxi

the next three years.
The agreement was termed a

Korean Defector
Trods U.S. Soil
D. Skinner, a former American
prisoner of war who chose to re
main in Communist China at the
end of the Korea War, stepped
onto U.S. soil today for 'the first
time in more than nine years.
A flight from Tokyo brought the
former Gl into New York Inter
national Airport early today. He
was greeted by neither relatives
nor friends when he stepped from
the airliner. Only a few newsmen
and an immigration official were
on hand when the turncoat de
Skinner, 32. was shaven and
neatly dressed. He said, "I def
initely have plans," but refused
to say what they were. He read
a telegram from his mother, Mrs.
Brady D. Skinner of Akron, Ohio,
and said it indicated a job was
waiting for him at home. He gave
no details.
Skinner, traveling alone, was
met at the airport by an official
of the Immigration and Naturali

on a certificate of identity issued
him by U.S. officials in Hong
Kong in lieu of a passport.
Skinner confirmed he was re

but refused to reveal his plans,
other than to say he would go to
Akron "as soon as possible."
Two District
Boards Approve
School Merger
The Canyonvillc School Board
met in special session with the
Myrtle Creek board this week in
Canyonville and the joint boards
gave the green light to the much-
discussed topic of reorganization
which will alfect the two districts.
According to a report from Beth
Chappell, correspondent, this is the
first tangible step thus far towards
the consolidation of the two dis
tricts. Days Creek-Tiller had ear
lier in the year voted down a
three-way consolidation, and Rid
dle last year withdrew from a
four-district plan.
The way is now clear for in
stituting procedures necessary to
bring the plan to a vote of the
residents of the districts. This is
expected to take anywhere from
90 days to three or four months,
according to board members. In
itial steps according to law must
be carried out with the approval
of the State Department of Edu
cation and the county Rural School
In other action the Canyonville
board set Sept. 3 as the opening
date of school for its district,
with the provision that those stu
dents engaged in bean picking
would be excused from school for
the duration of the harvest. Some
50 students are expected to par
ticipate in the harvest, Miss Chap
pell said. Provisions will be made
for make-up work.

a delayed school opening.

His statement on the U.S. race

County Forest Fire
Danger Worsening
The vacation from forest fire
danger is over for the Umpqua
National Forest.
The forest enjoyed a damp
spring and moist summer, but
that's all in the past. Weather con
ditions have reached a stage where
a normal fire season is anticipat
ed for the balance of the summer,
reports Homer Oft, a fire official
for the Umpqua.
Forest recreation users were
urged to be additionally careful
with camp fires and to make "ab
solutely certain they are out."
Smokers were urged to use ash
trays when snuffing out cigarcts.
The advent of fire season condi
tions will require increased vigil
ance by logging operators who are
affected by the 30 per cent hu
midity shutdown law. (The law ap
plies to forests in the western
areas of Oregon and Washington.)
Under this regulation, logging
nrierators are reauired to halt oper
ations when the humidity drops to
the 30 per cent mark. Oft said Cin
