"The lumber industry wants to cooperate with the many ele- ments of our economy that are suffering from this declining mar- ket," McCracken said. IIcCRACKEN cited the cost dif- ferential between U.S. ann Can- adian shipments to the Atlantic Coast as the prime reason for the lost markets. He said British Co- lumbia lumber can be shipped on foreign flag vessels for some $22 per thousand board feet. as against an average rate of $36 per thousand on U.S. ships that must be used by shippers in the U. S. Northwest. Numerous sawmills in Oregon and Washington have been forced to close during the past two years, with the transportation problem a significant cause. "We must all work together to find a solution before more mills go out of bus- iness and more jobs are lost." Mc- Cracken said. "The first mills affected, un- fortunately, are the small water- front mills that cannot easily con- vert to other lumber products. After examining their plight, we are moved to do all we can to aid them and the people of their com- munities." Until now, the only efforts to improve the situation have been made by individual mills. Now the WFIA, which includes more than 100 lumber and plywood mills (medium and small) in three states, has taken on what Me- Cracken calls tile "battle for sur- vival."

More Facilities in Olympic National Park Says Doerr Additional facilities are being use last summer to meet the hen- provided for campers and picnick-IvY increase m attendance by ms- ors in Olympic National Park this summer Supt. John E. Doerr an- nounced last week. Within the Pacific Coast Area of the Park campers will find a 100 site modern campground at Morn and a 70-site picnic gTound at Rialto. At the Heart O' the Hills. ahmg the road to Hurricane Ridge, a 100 site campground with modern faciliLies has been devel- oped, part of which will be open for camping the last weekend in June. At Hurricane Ridge ample picnic grounds are available with modern facilities in a setting of magnificent yews of the snow cov- ered mountains. At the Hoh River a 100 site campground was completed and in ny thousands of visitors who come to see and enjoy the rain forest. At this location visitors will soon have the use of a modern visitor center building and museum con- taining many interesting exhibits on animal life, climate, tree, and plant growth and other displays to help the visitor to better un- derstand and enjoy the area. The opening of these additional facilities at the beginning of the 1963 summer is a fitting occasion to announce the 25th anniversary of the establishment of Olympic National Park, Mr. Doerr added. In 1938. Congress passed the bill i establishing Olympic National Park. and it was signed by the President on June 29. 1938. O A Subsidiary of P. N. Hirsch & Co.
