Plenty of Raw Material, Say
Delegates ., to Convention
Now In Session In
Looking to a greatly increased
volume of trade m the lumber busi
ness this year, the Nebraska Retail
Lumbermen's association, now in
annual session at the Hotel Rome,
Wednesday instructed the secretary
of the organization to take up the
matter of obtaining from the rail
roads sufficient cars to move the
materials from the various mills.
According to F. A. Mather of
Carlton, Neb., who is a delegate to
the convention, it is the consensus
of opinion of the 700 delegates, rep
resenting every section of the state,
that the only element which prom
ises to impede the business during
the coming year is lack of cars in
which to ship.
Plenty Raw Material.
As far as getting the logs from
the woods in the southern and
northwestern countries is concerned.

it is not anticipated that the Indus
try will suffer in the least. Neither
is the proposition of working the
stuff at the mills a source of concern
to the retail lumbermen, according
to Mr. Mather.
"While the indications are that
building operations in Nebraska and
throughout the country will be in
creased to an amazing extent," de
clared Mr. Mather, "i is a fact that
the mills will, experience no diffi
culty in obtaining the logs from the
woods, and the manufacturers will
not be encumbered in Working the
timber into lumber, but the ques
tion of procuring a sufficient num
ber of cars to move the StuS threat

Mr. Mather declared the prices of
lumber which have prevailed for
the past seven . months would re
