Although there is nothing definite
yet regarding the location of the planing-

almost certain that this will be done

Moffat has the' data on his finger tipA.
for he has just come from the front and
is familiar with the different branches

"The mills will be twin ones," he
said "Wednesday. "Each mill will have
three double cutting band saws and
two horizontal resaws, making a bat

four horizintal resaws in the two mills.
These saws will have a capacity of
500,000 feet of lumber in the 20-hour
day of two ten hour shifts. These millt
will be in the center of a piling lumber

a power house containing a battery of
16 boilers, each having 200 horse power.
"To give an idea of the size of this
battery of boilers, a comparison of
those at the Southwestern Portland

of the power plant at the Pearson mills
will be just twice that of the big ce
