He called his department "the newest, most glamorous in Simp- son", and said it was moved from Seattle to the Shelton \\;Vorking 2irele because "this is Simpson's howplace." "In the Shelton Working Circle oreign visitors can be shown ex- eptionally well-managed forests, ntegrated forest products manu- 'acturing facilities and some of he most modern wood plants in .xistence anywhere." he said. McCLARY TRACED Simpson's nternational business back to 1925 .vhen Sawmill One was built in helton to cut "Jap Squares" vhich were shipped in large vol- tme until World War II. Foreign :fade was resumed after the war vith Simpson establishing an in- ernational department in 1960, md expanding into Simpson Inter- mtmnal last September. Today, :McClary and 10 other ersons headquartered in Shelton re examining trade opportunities }verywhere in the Free World. "We are a legitimate import- }xport organization," he said, "and o a great extent, operate separa- ely from Simpson Timber Com- pany. Only one other firm in the dustry i organized to carry out he entire import-export function." McClary said Simpson Interna- tonal is exporting to 35 countries. :n addition to exporting" Simpson )roducts, forest products of 25 3ther firms re sold by the depart- lent. Similarly, the import division is organized to sel] Simpson's ompetitors as well as other in- !ustrials and wholesale distribu- ors. I AMONG OTHERS, McClary lis- :ed two factors for the abundance )f international trade opportuni- ;ies: 1) government efforts to in- ",rease exports in order" to improve mr balance of payments dificit, md 2). the Trade Expansion Act passed by Congress last year. "As a result, the government today is making great efforts to 5elp companies sell overseas." "In my visits to the Far East and South America I have seen both the need and results of Amer- !can foreign aid and I am. convinc- ed that this aid is both good and ]ecessary. It has helped stem the ide of Communism. At the same ime it has helped build up over- mas industry and now we must e willing to let down our" tariff barriers and provide markets for them. Likewise, they must do the ;ame for us." "Simpson's guiding policy in its . ( ,rade efforts will be one of co- operation, not exploitation," said cClary. "We are prepared to as- dst foreign firms in improving their business since it will both trenghten cur relationships and further international goodwill and uriderstanding." Ralph Horton New County Gvi/ Defense D/redor The Mason County Commission this week named Ralph Horton, Shelton, as County Civil Defense Director to succeed Harry Carlon who is retiring. The appointment is effective June 1. Horton was selected by the commission from several ap- plicants for the job. He has lived in Mason County since 1946 and is active in the Kiwanis Club and the Faith Lu- theran church. The commission approved a franchise to E1 Paso Natural Gas Co., to cross county roads in con- structing a pipe line from the Thurston County line to Shelton. Also approved a change in the franchise to Cascade Natural Gas Co. to relocate some of the road crossings for its line from She!- ton to Bremerton. The commission re e e i red six bids on a .front end loader for the Road Department which were turned over to the county engineer for study. Social Securily Office Shifts Beifair.Tahuya Work To Bremerton To provibe better' social security service to those Mason County residents living in the Belfair-Ta- huya area, the responbiiity for serving that area has been trans- ferred to the Bremerton office of the Social Security Administration. In making this announcement. C. A. Skinner. manager of the Olympia office of the Social Se- cflrity Administration., and Reid Cailicoat. SS manager in Bremer- on, reported that the remainder of 5'Iason County will continue to be served by hs office, at 1007 So. Washington Street. Olympia. The change in jurisdictzon re- sulted from the fact that resi- dc'ats of Be!fair and Tahuya cus- tnmarily find it more convenient to go to Bremerton than to Olym- pia, Those living in Belfair or Ta- huya should get in touch with the office at 245 Pourth Avenue, Bre- merton, for social security infor- mation.

Special)--Terms for renewal: of a uniform labor agreement calling for a 7-cent wage increase for more than 20,- 090 employees of d8 Pacific Coast pulp and paper mills has been re- ferred by union delegates to their membership for a referendum vote ] gollowing three weeks of negoti- ation with management represen- tatives. The general wage increase, with improved fringe benefits, would boost, present payments to em- ployees of member firms by more than $4 million annually. This represents an over-all package cost of approximately 9 cents per hour. Rejection of the pulp and nape,- mill manufacturers association of- fer is being recommended unam- mously by the 135 union delegates who attended the Portland con- ference, Ralph Davison delegate from Local 161 of the Pulp and Paper Mill Workers Union in Shel- ton told the Journal Tuesday. Union members at Rayonier's Olympic ]Research division will cast their ballots this Friday and they will be sent unopened to Portland for comtting next Tues- day. Davison ,predicted the union membership would reject the offer by a wide margin throughout the industry, If this occurs" the way is then open for the employers to make a new offer if they wish. Davison explained, if not then a strike vote would be taken of the union members. In a joint statement issued to- day, labor and management rep- resentatives said the agreement would institute for the first time an association-wide pension pro- gram which gives every qualified retiring employee a pension wheth- er or not he participates in an in- dividual company pension plan, and establishes procedures' to con- sider future pens ion improve- ments. Several contractual changes al- so were proposed, including mod- ifications in the health and wel- fare prog,'am. Participating locals of the In- ternational Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill Worker's and the IJnited Papermakers ana Paperworkers will vote on the proposal which would become et- feetive June 1, if passed by the union membership. Among mills covered under tle uniform labor agreement negoti- ated in Portland is Rayonier, Inc.; Olympic Research Division.

The action came after a meeting with representatives of Cascade Natural Gas Company, during which it was pointed out that the gas firm made its own inspection of all installations before they were connected up, and. that an ordinance and inspection by the city would be just duplicating this work. The proposed natural gas ordi- nance had been given a first read- ing, but, had not had final ap- proval when it was dropped. in process of nel Creek Trail date uncertain. passes still stream fishing level 4.000 planting work working on trail for a poor land rhod were frost QUINAULT roads open and in dition.
