War demands have thrown increasing production problems upon the lumber industry. That the industry in the Northwest has changed its traditional production pattern to meet the most important requirements is a tribute to management and labor cooperation. Specific controls have been established to distribute lumber and lumber products to fill the most essential needs. An estimated shortage of 19,000 workers in woods and mill operations in the Douglas fir, western pine, and redwood regions has resulted in an increasingly tightening production situation, which is being met, in part at least, by labor-management joint efforts.
