On a May evening in Houston, a mock logger with a real chain saw dismembered a hunk of redwood at the 50th birthday banquet of financier Charles E. Hurwitz. Just a poke in the ribs, Texas-style, for Western environmentalists' most hated foe. Over the decades in Northwest timber country, there have been many objects of environmentalists' scorn.

Jefferies & Co. said companies controlled by former KaiserTech Chairman Alan E. Clore paid Jefferies about $6.9 million to satisfy a debt resulting from Clore's purchase of KaiserTech limited common stock last October. The stock purchases, ordered by Clore and entities he controlled, were responsible for almost all of a loss reported in the fourth quarter of last year by Jefferies, the Los Angeles-based securities firm that executed the order.

Ten years ago, Texas-born Charles E. Hurwitz sashayed into Los Angeles and waltzed away with McCulloch Oil Co. Since then, the mild, owlish-looking takeover artist has been building a natural resources empire centered in California. Adding to the oil and extensive land holdings acquired with McCulloch, Hurwitz picked up one of the world's largest holdings of redwood timberland in Northern California by acquiring Pacific Lumber Co. in 1986.

KaiserTech said Thursday that it has formed a special committee of directors to evaluate "one or more" offers to buy the firm. The bids are expected to be submitted soon by the aluminum company's management and its largest shareholder. Cautioning that the board "has not yet decided to sell the company," KaiserTech revealed that it has adopted a limited shareholder rights plan that would allow shareholders to buy new stock in the company for $1 per share to help ward off a hostile takeover.
