For several decades southern pine lumbermen have advocated greater mechanical efficiency in their manufacturing processes, but until recently little has been done in an organized way to accomplish this objective. As the result of changes in working conditions brought about by reduced hours of employment, increased wage rates, severe competition from other woods and substitute materials, and other disturbing elements, the present economic status of the southern pine industry is one which leaves much to be desired from the standpoint of increased efficiency. This article may sharpen the understanding of those who are conscious of the benefits to be derived through increased efficiency and greater mechanization.
