City Finds Park Most of APW Money An allotment of $70.000 fox" im- provements in Olympic National Park made in February has taken up almost all of the funds avail- able to Mason County under the Accelerated Public Works Pro- gram. Shelton Cit y officia.ls learned this week from Sen, Henry M. Jackson. City and county ofmials were unaware that the amount alloted to the park would be deducted from the funds available to the county. Cy.o.ofhcmls, after being in- formed by Houaing and Home Fi- nance Agency officials last month that no more funds were avMlable under present appropriations for Accelerated Public Works projects, wrote Sen Jackson asking his support for the project. They received a letter back from Jackson stating that since $70,- 000 had already been alloted from Mason County's share of the pros- Basketball Oanquet Is Tonight Even if you haven't yet bought your ticket to tonight's basket- ball banquet it's not too lat-- providing this reading is being done before 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 4.

Rain Halts Jayree Work Party At Ca//anan Park The Shelton Jaycee work party at Callanan Park Saturday was called off after about two hours of work because of the rain, About five persons showed up at. 9 a.m. to work and three truck loads of logs and debris were hauled out before the rain made the roads so soft the trucks were damaging then,. The group halted their efforts about 11:15 a.m. About one more good work par- ty will be necessary to get the final clean up work done. Arnold Fox. Jaycee chairman for the pro- ject said. No dale has been set for the job. he said, but it will l=robably be after the weather gels better. FOREIGN STUDENTS VISIT -- Five foreign students who are attending the University of Washington visited in Shelton last week. Here, they pose for a picture after the Shelton Rotary Club meeting,-Left to right, front row, are Ade Abiodun, Wariboko West, Cyril Emehelu and Anthony West, and Sasbar Asif, India. In the back row are Steve Thompson, Seattle, driver for tho group, Dr. Douglas K. Larson, who handled men[ and assets of Rayonier's closed Shelton pulp mill were dis- closed in New oYrk this week by Ccorge E Scofield. General Man- ager of the cellulose produce, r's mauufae m'ing operations. Scofie.ld also announced that M. J. Mac- Kinnon. Northwest purchasing agent for the Company, would co- ordinate dismantling of thc plant and the sale of its equipment from the firm's Seattle office. OPERATIONS AT SItELTON were discontinued in 1957 when world market conditions brought about a sharp decline in the need for cellulose manufacturing ca- pacity, particularly in the pro- duct grades in which the Shelton mill speeialized. Although the plant was kept in strand-by readi- ness 5or several years, it became increasingly apparent that rapid cha:Lge, ]n pt{Ip-making teehl{of ogy had ruled out any possib}iy of re-opening the mill withbut major rebuilding, Scofield /ex- plained. He cited the high cos of operating the mill's very effective waste disposal system. Lransporta- tion. and other cost factors as major in[luences in the company's decision to iouidate rather thea rebuild the mill. At the same time, Dr. R.:L, -, Mitchell, General Manager of Re- search for Rayonier, indicated the company's major research facili- ties in the Shelton area. which employ more than 135 men and women, would be unaffected. "Fi- nal closure of the mill will not affect Rayonier's million dollar an- nual payroll in the Shelton area," he stressed. "The Olympic Re- search Division will continue nor- mal operations." RAYONIER OFFICIALS here said that as far as they knew. the phms included only disposal of the equipment and that the build- ings would remain standing. One of the buildings will be used by the Research Lab opera- tion when t is emptied. The mill began operation  in 1927 and produced largely pulp from which cellophane was made. , Simpson Names Logging Head For Shelton RONALD L.
