"THE PAPER THAT HAS NO ENEMIES HAS NO FRIENDS.’1
- George Putnam
Shall We Be Careful?
I x 'I’ h fit VI & M’ h coming addition in Lyons to the North Santiam < anyon
community—instead of fitting ourselves Io it.
Yea. soon Lyons ahall have an M & M timber processing plant similar
to their Idanha plant. We know this means a payroll is being added to
the North Santiam community.
Now . . . since we have a new payroll coming . . . just how should we
regard it? Should we have the urge for hopping into the air and clicking
those old heels together while shrieking. SAVED!?
When thia flush of emotion passes, should we then have the desire for
pocketing that payroll to such an extent that the greed shows like big
dollar signs in our eyes? Should those of us who own property up the
asking sales price a few notches—likewise rentals?
A bit of thought brings a sobering fact into the light. Mills of one
sort or another have come and gone from the North Santiam < anyon.
But for the magic touch of Good Old Mother Nature alone there would be
no timber now ripe for use in this Canyon. Hammond lumber company
slaughtered much of our virgin timber and then pulled stakes. I his» little
deal left Mill City J wreck and a shambles.
Yes, there's such a thing as ‘‘a sustained yield —the idea is, hardest
each year in such a way that next year and many years following that there
remains timber ripe for harvesting. Assume the entire Canyon-wide timber
resource under a sustained yield plan and that there is promise of an
indefinite timber harvest—what of it?
Timber harvests alone will not blossom this North Santiam Canyon area
into a high level income, population or produce center. VC e need and must
have our timber turned into bedroom sets, tables, chairs, desks, toys, etc.
right here in the canyon.
We should let it be known that if logs from our Canyon are sliced here
for plywood that we want the slices put together into plywood sheets here
also, plus the use of that plywood in industries in our Canyon.
It is said that one city is physically very much the same as any other
city; and that this means those who live in a city give it the only character
it can ever have. An industry interested in a community puts its finger
on the pulse of that area and also gives a character examination.
If the civic accomplishments of that area are feeble and its reputation
shady, industry can not help but see an unhealthy community. Ill health
is no box office favorite these days!
lutbor oils the machinery of industry. Laborers first, last and always
are human beings. They consume food and seek shelter as do other humans.
Human wants and needs are much the same.
Those who become a part of M & M's timber processing plant in Lyons,
be they representatives of that industry or labor, deserve a fair shake tn
our community. Do not forget our community is composed of business,
churches, school houses, etc.
We must assure M 4 M and other industries that the North Santiam
Canyon community is a fertile soil for any seeds of major industry they
have ready for planting. The best way we have of letting industry learn
this is by convincing the human beings who make such things possible.
We must guarantee convenient building sites, both for industry and
private citizens, at reasonable prices plus favorable living conditions, which
include a spirit of neighborliness. We must secure adequate and cheap power
plus modern public utilities for their use.
Fall short of this goal and another Hammond deal is our reward.

Soft-Soap Didn't Affect Al;

-------------------------------- By BILLY ROSE------------------------------------
In Miami some winters ago, Al Jolson stopped in for a quick
one at the bar of the hotel where he was staying, and as if on cue
the juke box began playing his recording of "Sonny Boy." When
the machine clicked off, a plainish-looking woman walked up to
the bartender and said, "Lend me a couple of nickels, Mac. I can’t
get enough of that song."
Jolson pushed a quarter down the bar. ‘‘The next five are on
