Motorlogue Set For Lassen Scenes
June 10, 1941

Beverly Keim of Los Angeles conferred recently with George McDow Jr., secretary of the Susanville chamber of commerce, about pictures and material which he is gathering for a motorlogue of the Three Flags highway, U.S. 395, between southern California and Washington. Keim is a newspaperman.

Information collected will stress Route 395 as a high-speed highway, free from army truck movement through southern California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and into Canada. Colored motion pictures also are being taken of the scenic highlights along the route.

McDow arranged with the Lassen national forest officials for a number of views of the scenic wonders and beauties of Lassen County, to be incorporated in the motorlogue.

Harold Eugene Neff, Gaylord Clayton Bowden, Don Maxwell, Ivan Leroy Wright, all of Westwood, Ernest Peter Batal, John Vernon Peconom, Rufus Leon Connelly and Manley Wilson Inlay, all of Susanville and George Franklin Van Houton of Bieber will leave here June 23 for selective service training in various parts of the United States.
