B. Winter, District Forester, Mifflinburg, here recently. This exceeds by a@least twenty million tons the total amount of steel used. Wbod, with steel cop- per, and aluminum, said District Forester Winter, is considered a- mong the essential war Some idea of the quantiCies of wood needed' may be had from the fact that Uncle Sam wants fi2teen billion board feet of boxing and cratin,g this year to help ship food and suppIies eveffseas and to meet essential do- mestic shjppiRg requ, irements. Crates for food shipments are already scarce, and furniture production ha been limited. According t~o Admiral Clark H. Woodward, District Forester Winter said, the Navy has utilized more than forty billion board feet of lum- ber since June, 1943. He quoted Ad- miral Woodward as saying, "The Armed, Forces regard the men in the thirty to forty thousand lumber producing units in the U~tited States as front line ~ighters in this conflict. Every skilled job in the w~ods and mills is, in every sense, a battle sta- tion. Every tree of flghtirtg.age and size is wanted in the battle of free- dom." Among outstanding uses for lum- ber and pulpwood D'i~rict Forester Winter included cellulose for explo- sives, paper parachutes for dropping supplies, cardboard containers for medicine and shell cases, struts and beams for airplane gliders and cargo ships, oak for ships knees, wood for truck ,bodies, for ~hangars for air dir- gibles, for landing barges and PT Patrol boats, for crates arid boxes, for pontoons, for portable front line buts, and for at least 1,200 other military uses, many of which the public seldom re~izes. The importance of wood to the war effort is indicated by the fol- lowing recent statemen~ from Ma- jor General Lewis B. Hershey, Di- rector of Seqective Service, District Forest Win~er said: 'WIany men mus~ ,be selected to remain at home to produce ships, tanks, planes, and guns and shipping boxes, and to pro- duce the raw materials and to man- ufaeture the products from which those war tools are made. Without the lumber and lumber products which you prOduce, America's great Army cannot be equipped or trans- ported. Therefore, I have charged the agencies of Selective Service throughout the nat~on t~ give the most se.rious consideration to the de- fermen.t of men who are giving the M/~. CLYDE OCHER Mrs. Grace R.
