Import Quotas On Lumber Are Denied The U.S. Tariff Commission last week rejected the pleas of the lumber industry for more restric- tions on Canadian Lumber im- ports. In its report to President John F. Kennedy after a seven-month study of conditions in the soft- wood lumber industry, the com- mission said the increase in Ca- nadian imports were not caused in major part by past tariff conces- sions. Without a recommendation for action by the commission the President may not apply any res- trictions on Canadian lumber im- ports. THE INDUSTRY HAD asked for an increase of $1 to $6 per thousand board feet in tariff boosts and a quota of 6.5 per cent of U.S. softwood lumber consump- tion on Canadian imports. "We are not unduly surprised," said G. C. Edgett, executive vice president of West Coast Lumber- men's Association. when informed of the ruling. Under terms of the Trade Ex- pansion Act of 1962, said Edgett, the lumber industry had to prove that previous tariff concessions were a major cause of hurt from lumber imports. This would be virtually impossible for any indus- try to do. EDGETT SAW SOME GOOD resulting from the hearings. He said that they enabled Congress and other interested federal agen- cies to get a much clearer picture of the extent of harm being done to an American industry from ex- cessive foreign imports. Last year Canadian imports reached almost 17 per cent of all domestic soft- wood consumption in this country, he said. "We believe," Edgett stated, "Congress is sensitive now to in- dustry problems and will take necessary steps to correct the abuses. Several bills are already in Congress. One would prevent the use of foreign lumber in FHA financed homes." Scout Fund Drive Is .Vet Today The annual fund drive of the Mason District of the Tumwater Area Council, Boy Scouts of Amer- ica, will be conducted today, E. Warren Moe, finance chairman. said. 'Men working in the fund drive will be visiting businesses and homes today to solicit funds Heading the business division will be Ken Fredson.

Mrs. Hansen Has Bill To Require U,S. Lumber In FHA Homes Congresswoman Julia :BUtler Hansen has introduced another bill designed to help the lumber economy of Southwest Washing. ton. t The latest bill would require all lumber used in housing Whose mortgages are guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration to be produced in the United States. Mrs. Hansen pointed out that during 1962 a total of 260 885 housing units was financed through Federal Housing Admin- istration guaranteed loans. She pointed out that this was 18 per- cent of the total housing Starts and through passage of her bill, a new market for Northwest-pro. duced lumber could be created. "Residential construction now takes about 40 percent of the total amount of lumber consumed in the United States today." Con- gresswoman Hansen. said. "Thus about 7 percent of total lumber consumed in the United States goes into housing, wiUl mort-sages guaranteed by FHA. With annual consumption of softwood hunber approa_.hing 31 billion feet a lit- tle over 2 billion feel per year would be affected by the bill.;' Old Logger List Gels Longer' More nanles were added to tile list of old loggers in Mason Court. ty this week as the Forest Festi- val continued its search for names.

New Building At N. hi. &hod Gets State OK By Dennis Shelly The preliminary approval of plans for the $30,000 cafeteria- auditorium building at North Ma- son were received last Monday by the school board. Final plans and specifications are now being drawn up by an Everett architect, William Arild Johnson, before the 40 by 80 building will be publi- cized for bidding on its construc- tion. About two thirds of the building's cost will be paid for by the Federal Housing and Home fiance Agency which has ah'ea- dy allotted $18,900 for construc- tion of new buildings in the school district. The school board has also mat- ched funds from the student body, approximately $600. for the pre- liminary construction of tenms courts.
