A BILL To restrict the exportation of certain Douglas fir peeler logs and Port Orford

SEC. 2. For the purposes of this Act, a "peeler log" shall mean a log (a) hav. ing a diameter of twenty-four or more inches at either end; (b) suitable for rotary veneer cutting and capable of producing not less than 20 per centum of clear veneer, based upon the scale content of the log; (c) having not less than eight annual rings per inch at the smaller end; and (d) not containing such defects as shatter, excessive splits, loose annual rings, loose or soft heart decay, or any other defect which makes such a long unsuitable for rotary veneer cutting.

SEC. 3. For the purposes of this Act, Port Oxford cedar logs shall not be exported from the United States irrespective of size or quality.

SEO. 4. Any person who knowingly exports or causes to be exported any such logs without the approval of the President, as provided in his Act, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction in any district court of the United States, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $5,000 or by imprisonment for not more than one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
