Sadler turns attention to Oregon's future
The Oregon chapter of the
American Fisheries Society
meeting at Kah-Nee-Ta January
22-24 opened its conference with
its guest speaker, syndicated
Oregon columnist Russell Sadler.
"We have wandered off into a
waterless drift," Sadler began.
Oregon isn't the Oregon of ten
years ago. Fundamental changes
have occurred over the years.
The question now is "What must
we do to gain control over our
Sadler pointed out that fewer
Americans own their own homes
now than in the 1930s. The
deregulation of interest rates
affected the timber industry along
with individuals.
Although lumber production
is nearly what it was in 1979 it
takes only 3.4 workers to do the.
same job that 4.79 workers did
then. Big mills closed and these
private mill owners took their
money and went south.
Independent lumber compa- "
nies, feeling loyalty to their com
munities, remained and moder
nized their mills to meet smaller
timber size requirements. The

major problems now is not supply
but marketing. Timber is avail
able in places other than Oregon.
Oregon no longer dominates
the market.
The state must find other
industries to supply employment
for its residents. Agriculture is
not the industry for that as
machines have greatly replaced
High-tech industry helps but
it is not the total answer. "It is
not a cure-all," Sadler pointed
Tourism has its disadvantages
but it could be the base of
Oregon's economy. Oregon's
"economic future lies in peddling
its assets." A wild river system
and national parks could be
managed for habitat protection
and yet provide an attraction to
tourists and an economic base
for Oregon's future.

points for Oregon's future that
must be carefully treated and
studied. Private fish hatcheries
are "doomed and are no longer
a threat. . .The public is relucant
to make public policy to protect
private interests."
The federal government, how
ever, will be looking for ways to
get out from hatchery funding.
Sadler adds, "a solution will be
required. . ."It could cost us the
resource if we don't plan for it."
The Forest Products Act "will
not protect forests and resources,"
Sadler explained. Important
forest management decisions for
Oregon must be made in Oregon.
Indian treaties must be
accepted, insisted Sadler. "A
succession of supreme courts
and changes of idealogical
balance have supported the inter
pretation of those treaties."The

for the extremely high bills,
according to Pacific Power and
Light Madras manager, Richard
Laudahl. In November the person
who regularly reads the meters
was ill. His replacement was
plagued with route unfamiliarity
and inclement weather which
slowed him down. Useage for
those meters not read by the
billing date was estimated by
the computer. The estimates by
the computer were conservative
and lower than the actual useage
for November. The December
bills when added to the November
bills than divided by two will
reflect a truer picture of the
amount for each month.
Customers of P.P. and L.
who have received an extremely
high bill which would create a
hardship should go to the Madras

credit manager Tammy.
