This paper was prepared some time prior to the October 24-26 Conference on Article X of the Lumber Code. In it an attempt is made to show how the operation of the Code may affect a typical large scale hardwood and hemlock logging and milling enterprise in the Lake States. The restrictions which the Code will probably place upon output and the effect that such restrictions may have on both financial and technical aspects of lumbering in this region are points to which particular attention is paid. It is believed that Article VIII of the Code, which outlines the method whereby production allotments shall be made to each operator, can be considered as complementary to Article X which provides that, "The applicant industries undertake ... to carry out such practicable measures as may be necessary ... in respect of conservation and sustained production of forest resources." Intelligent compliance with the provisions of Article VIII will it is reasoned, in all probability, satisfactorily meet the requirements of Article X.
