Fear Is Felt That Some Plants
in West May Have to
Suspend. ' 1
SIDE CUT FAST PILING UP
lack of Market for Common I.um
toer May Interfere Seriously With
J" rod actio a of Government
' Airplane Stock.
SEATTLE. Wash. Sept 21. (Special.)
v Lack of orders for surplus lir and
apruce soon may force some of the
mills In Western Oregon and Western
Washington to close, and millmen are
beginning to fear the effects of such
action on future production of air
craft stock and ship timber which the
;nvrnment is demanding.
The lumbermen say they have done
rrthinr no.tsible to move their ac
rnmtilations of common lumber, but
that it is niline- ud at an alarming rate.
Thir onmmercial market has been
tikn aviv from them through era
ti-rrx nd buildine restrictions and
the district has not been favored with
large Government orders for common
lumber. The situation Is serious, as
every mill that is forced to close
through inability to move its surplus
means a corresponding reaucuon in
production of aircraft stock, ship tim
ber, railroad material and other gov
Daaarr Is Pointed Oat.
The lumbermen have brought the
altuatien to the attention of Govern
ment officials on the coast and through
their representatives at Washington
D. C. have impressed it upon members
of Congress. The danger of curtailing
.the nroduction of aircraft stock has
been emDhatically pointed out.
The nresent condition, the lumber
men insist, is one for which they are
in no way responsible. They have ad
vised the authorities that the present
government demands for aircraft
stock, ship timber and other material,
require- less than 50 per cent of their
output, and that lack of corresponding
government orders for common jumoer
renders the financing of their opera
tions one of increasing difficulty. At
the same time, they point out., govern
ment orders for common lumber are
being placed in large quantities with
mills in the South.
Coat of Prodartloa la.
On account of Increased wages and
general price advances the present
cost of producing lumber is fully $15 in
excess of the normal and the mills
are forced to carry their surplus
stocks at this excess cost.
With a generous distribution of gov
ernment orders in this territory for
material required in cantonment con
struction, boxing, crating and other
government work, the lumbermen de
clare they would be able to move
enough of their side cut to permit con
tinued production of essential air
craft material. r I
