fork and spoon, a program will be
presented at 2:36 and dinner will be

. y- ; pany, Salem, Oregon,
This mill is one of the most modern paper mills In the country, la equipped wiht high grade eulphite
specialties, euch as glassine and greaseproof papers at present not manufactured on the Pacific Cnn
as wrapping, tissue and waxing papers. The mill buildings are about completed, the machinery being erectej,
and the plant will be In operation very shortly.
This preferred atock is cumulative from July 1, 1920, pays 8 per cent per annum, dividends payable
monthly; none of the stock of this company either preferred or common has been sold for less thaa par io
per share. i
The ownership of the $600,000 common stock rests largely with F. W. Leadbetter, the president, also
president of the California-Oregon Paper Mills with mill in Los Angeles, and for 25 years a large stockholder
and director of the Camas, now the Crown-Willamette Paper company. And the C. K. Spauldlng Logging
company, which owns a saw mill adjoining the paper mill at Salem, and furnishes the new mill with sawdust
for fuel and the necessary wood for the 60 tons of sulphite daily made In the sulphite mill, Mr. C. K. Spauld
lng, the president of the logging company, being vice-president of the paper mill, and the fact that Mr. -Spauldlng
and Mr. Leadbetter each own one-half of the Spauldlng Logging company, which in turn owns nearly one
billion feet of timber with its own logging roads, assures the new paper mill of its raw materials without the
great expenditure for timber usually necessary to supply a great paper mill enterprise.
These two interests combined with the heavy holdings of the local Salem stockholders, and Mr. E. a
Collins and the Ladd estate of Portland, comprise the ownership of these mills and makes of this plant a
distinctive Oregon corporation, designed, owned and operated by Oregonlans.
