A I , There is still an abundance of spruce timber gin the Olympics, and plywood is becoming the great building factor in replacing and conserving inew and large industry for the future of this im- imediate region, of which- Shelton is a center. After the demand for the present war is over ialmost as many of our people as those now mov- iing in automobiles will be taking to the air, in the Etravel, and our young people be demanding light I planes for pleasure and business, making this a igreat industry. I - - ! LOST TIME WILL COST LIVES } Now that this country is getting into full ispeed on its war preparedness and demanding {that industry and labor stop all foolishness and join hands in united effort to produce all and leverything needed, the people are beginning to :realize that lost time now means lost lives later i on. President Roosevelt is also taking tardy n0- tice of the fact that Communists are at the bot- itom of many if not most of the big strikes going ’on over the country, intended to disrupt industry and delay war work; and nearer home the same element is coming to the front in the Boeing Air- plane factory at Seattle. —_.__~ MOVING TO THE WESTWARD The Northwest and particularly Puget Sound 18 due for another of the early day booms which brought the first boost to population and indus- try and business in this region, a necessary se- quence to the huge public spending and building program which attracts and will leave many new- lcomers here. This boost will be felt in every city and town Iand there Will be a new era of expansion in every direction to take care of the influx of people, as well as of new industries which have been dor. mant or held back for a decade awaiting more propitious times and conditions to bring them into life. " ‘ ’ True, this is more or less frothy and tempor- ary, unless the boost is taken advantage of along more permanent lines; there are fields for new industry, particularly along the lines of mining land development of light-metals, as well as in manufacture of new products of science' therein lies opportunity for future progress. {Beef Diarketing To Be leXtCnSion economist at the State Iconege 0f Washington.
