FIRST PAPER MILL IN SOUTH TO MAKE PULP
FROM YELLOW PINE IS LOCATED IN BOGALUSA About ten years ago, when visit ing the mills established here by the Great Southern Lumber Company, Colonel George R. Wright was im pressed with the immense quantity of unavoidable waste material incident to the operations of even the greatest and best organized mill in the world. Believing that this refuse could be m m :• .r . . ... turned into a marketable product in | the form of wood pulp for paper, he undertook the development of a plan that finally resulted in bringing to Bogalusa an enterprise that is on a parity with the other immense indus tries of the city, organizing the Louisiana Fibre Board Company, with which he has been identified from j the beginning as president. To Colonel Wright the credit is given for the inception of the indus- ! try and its establishment in this city, meeting and overcoming many dis couraging obstacles, not the least of which were the trade conditions in cident to the great war. it was nec essary to practically blaze a trail in the development of this plant, as the refuse of the Louisiana yellow pine required special machinery and treat ment. The success of the Louisiana Fibre Board Company has demon strated the practical possibilities of the methods used and has induced other mills to be installed to make use of an unlimited supply of ma terial furnished by the immense areas of yellow pine in the South. The Fibre Board Company has em ployed a force of several hundred men for years, paying in salaries a sum that has run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, much of which is expended with Bogalusa business men, hence contributing in a great measure to the general pros perity this community has enjoyed. G. H. Wood was vice-president and general manager of this company for two years, and during his regime, by the installation of special machin ery and developing of a new process COZY CORNER IS POPULAR PLACE j AND ONLY BEST IS SERVED PATRONS In some lines of retail business j there is a current belief that "loca- : tion is everything."
