8 Sheridan Sun, Sheridan, Oregon, Thursday, May 24, 1979 !~i! / The Western Deer Park offers children a chance to let acquainted with the animals. Here, Lumber industry bounds es ern The western lumber indus- try rebounded strongly in March from a rather slow February and operated at 93:0 percent of its practical capaci- ty. In February the industry operated at 88.2 percent of capacity, according to the Western Wood Products As- sociation. In March 1978, the industry operated at 92.9 percent of capacity. "This upswing should have really surprised nobody," WWPA Director of Economic Services Fred Rese- burg said. "We had a terrible winter coupled with a railcar shortage that helped bring most construction to a stand- still. This is a typical reaction to pent-up building demand that follows downtime caused by weather," he said. Year-to-date figures show production as a percent of practical capacity at 90.5 percent for the first three months of 1979. In the first three months of 1978, the western lumber industry oper- ated at 96.0 percent of practical capacity. WWPA established the 12- state western lumber produc- ing industry's practical capa- city for any given month as the highest actual production reached in that month during the last five calendar years, including the current month. The monthly WWPA capa- city report covers lumber production totaling about 18 billion board feet manufac- tured annually in the 12 western states. That is about 60 percent of the U.S. softwood output. hapman graduation Graduation ceremonies for Chapman Grade School's 8th grade class will be at 1:30 p.m. June 7 with a family picnic following at Grenfell Park in the evening.
