FIVE NEW BOARDS
While a committee on reorgan

resources to include the game
and fish commissions, forestry
department, soil and water con
servation, the sanitary board,

Sharp Increase In
Logging and Mill
Permits In 1950
The year 1950 saw a sharp in
crease in the number of logging
and mill permits issued in the
state, according to state forestry
A total of 12,874 permits were
issued last year as compared
with 10,702 for the year of 1949
and 4,143 for the year of 1945.
The "Forest Operation Permit"
is required of all power-driven
operations in western Oregon
within one-eighth mile of forest
land. Operations engaged in the
harvesting of timber or other
forest products are required to
obtain a combined "Forest Op
eration and Conservation Har
vesting Permit". Only the "Con
servation Harvesting Permit" is
required in eastern Oregon.
The purpose of the permits is
to enforce fire control measures
and protect seed source for con
tinuous growth of timber as re
quired by the Oregon ' forest
laws. The forestry department
employs 32 forest inspectors to
administer the law.

John E. Clark, insurance man from San Francisco, California, writes,
"From all I can gather, the West's oil companies have contributed a lot to our area.

Do customers? Not likely.
Oil companies have turned
out constantly better prod
ucts and services at reason
able prices. Except for taxes, a
gallon of gasoline today costs
about what it did in 1919.
Do stockholders? Surely
not. There has never been a
year when Standard has failed
to pay a dividend. 98,600 in
dividuals share the earnings
of Standard, depend on the
stability of Standard to as
sure safety for their savings.
Forester Calls Attention To
Losses in Burning 'Waste'
In another communication
from Glenn Parsons, Ranger of
the Heppner division of the Um
atilla National Forest, he calls
attention to losses sustained in
the burning of valuable mater
ial which, . in the mind of the
layman may appear to be waste
but to the forester and scientist
is the basis for added industries.
Mr. Parsons' article follows:
Some interesting information
has crossed my desk bringing to
the attention that perhaps we
are missing a bet in Morrow
county. Millions of pounds of
slash, windfalls, cull logs, and
sawdust are going to waste an
nually. Much of it is burned a
waste of a precious and badly
needed organic material ..
