Sawmill # 1 at the Lassen Lumber & Box Company

Lassen Company Closes Briefly
March 4th, 1947

H. W. Bridgeford, manager of the Lassen Lumber and Box company, disclosed today that its mill is scheduled to close March 6 for a five-week repair period.

The mill is expected to resume operations April 10 or 12, he said. Neither its dry lumber, planing mill nor box shook factory will close during this period.

The sawmill has worked continuously all winter with two shifts. A total of 238 employees are now on the payroll and more than 100 more are expected to go to work for the mill’s logging contractor, Susanville Logging, co., in April.

R. L. Kemp, manager of the Paul Bunyan Lumber co, in Susanville, said: “we’re ironing out the kinks in the new sawmill.”

He said the mill is now cutting 50,000 feet, with a cut of 65,0000 feet anticipated.
