Among these they say Is the fat 1
that only a few years ago It was!
possibV to cut within the forests
large amounts of timber along the
various streams and bv use of the
streams to carry that timber to cer
tain loading places.
As the cutting went on the forests
kept receding from the banks of the
streams and rivers with a consequent
increase in the price of transporting
the timber which is one of the fac
tors that makes steadily for higher
This, thev sav, is but one of th
few fundamental conditions that can
not be overcorrie and that make stead
ily for higher prices in lumber of nil
kinds and which they point out mere
ly as an lllu'stri't Ion.
Another illustration of why It is
becoming each enr more of a prob
lem to meet the demand for lumber
is shown by a timber sale at pres
ent being advertised by the forest
service in the Malheur national for
est in south-central Oregon.
The fore.-rt service s advertising In
that section some $90,000,000 feet of
timber offering a 20-year contract to
lumber operators that are in a position-
to take over the cutting of that

Local lumber dealers state that
prices of lumber have been rising
. steadily recently due to the increas
ing demand and the inability of the
lumber men to increase their pro-
duetion to a point where it will keep
pace with the demand.
Dimension material which on Aug
ust 1 was quoted at $35 per thousand
Is today quoted at $43.50; flooring
which could be bought at $70 and
$80 on July 1, now brings $74 to
$S5 per thousand

from j:.2.:.0 to $62 50. depending on
the grad- bought, now brings from
$63.50 to $71. CO dependent on the

Fir finish lumber which sold on
July 1 at $;0 per thousand is now
$110 and pine finish that brought

Lumber men In Ogden state that

prices of lumber will continue to ad-

been increasing constantly and state
positively thut the man that builds
his home today will build it al -i

' FREIGHT R Ti:$.
Recent discussions of freight rates
and of transportation costs generally
have doubtless brought to the at
tention of a considerable part of the
public the fact that many so-called
high prlcor are due largely to in
creased transportation cost. This :n
crease Is especially burdensome to !
lumber; first, because the lumber
freight rates. have been advanced, and,
second, because the average distance

Jfrom tho place of production to tho

Illinois and Iowa farmers who n
'few years ago bought white pine from
I Michigan and Minnesota that moved
la short dii-tnce at a low rat. now art
using Douglas fir and southern pine
.that move hundreds of miles farther
, at very much higher rates. .n owa
; retailer writes thot he has had oc
, caslon recently to show some of his
i farmer customers just why freight is
so large a factor in the retail cost of
lumber. These costs, the retailer fur
ther explained, are such that they are
ijiot likely to be reduced. That is. to
feiay the factors that make up the
; present cost of lumber are of a per
; manent nature, and lumber prires ar.
sure to be maintained ;it a liigher
level on that accoiiyit
In this eonneet.on tlte sun.- r.tu'
j er notes the Importance of showing
buyers of lumber siomething about
the methods of logging and manu
, facture. When they learn that the
,cost of the lumber at the mill Is less
a thousand feet than the freight
charge for moving it from mill io
retail yard they nre astounded that
lumber can be produced so cheaply
considering alio the investment In
j mill, in railroad and in other equip
ment, besides the cost of carrying the
t;mbcr necessary to protect the ini
tial plant Investment and the lum
ber during the process of drying.
This retailer praises the mode film
as an agency for making known to
consumers some of the facts re.ird
lncr lumber production, particularly
when the lumbering operations are
spectacular, as In the west. Ho r.ur
gests, however that film publicity
would be much more effctlv-.j If the
films illustrated "without blasfthe op
erations in the various lumbyirlng sec
tions" and were syndicated with reg
ular film corporations. 1he fact in
that lumbermen themselves nre but
