Woodlot Farmers To hold Meeting At French Creek An interesting program, especial- ly for farmer-woodlot owners, has been arranged in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Wash- ington State Forest Products Co- operative Association at the French Creek Grange Hall, Friday, March 4. The meeting will start with a free lunch to be served at noon followed by talks by Gene Hayfield, Department of Natural Resources, Sultan; Joe. Robinson, Simpson Pa- per Co., Everett; and Carl Garey, Skykomish Tree Farm, Monroe. The subjects chosen by the speak- ers will be timely and of general interest, according to J .W. Spada, president of the organization. Two films will be shown; one, a picture tour of European Fores- try which will be shown by Walter Thompson of the U. S. Forest Serv- ice, Portland, and the other, "To- morrow&apos;s Trees" will be shown by Carl Garey of the Weyerhaeuser Co. A discussion period will follow when those present will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss problems of mutual inter- est, Spada said.

Moore said changes were made in both the commerical and sport reg- ulations to compensate for the poor recruitment of young clams and the high digging intensity in recent years. For the commercial diggers, the season opens March 15 and closes when a quota of 350,000 pounds has been reached. There are no week- end closures. The corrmercial dig- gers will be limited to the one area between the Copalis River and Me- clips. Moore also said that the com- merieal digging on Spit No. 6 in Willapa Harbor will be continued for the entire year with no quota limit. The season for personal use ra- zor clam digging will ,be the same as last year, opening March 1 and closing October 15. Between Octo- ber 16 and March 1, personal use digging is allowed only Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. The daily bag and possession limit for sport diggers for the sea- son starting March 1, 1960, will be 18 clams. This change was sug- gested and approved by the repre- sentatives of the various clam beaches and other intersts in the area as an equitable means of bal- ancing the dig with the available clams without reducing the length of the season. Moore said that this proposal was adopted by his de- partment because it was fair to all concerned and would provide the Recomended By School Directors A "pay-as-you-go" plan for fi- nancing school construction has been recommended by the Legis- lative Committee of the Washing- ton State School Directors' Associ- ation.

VV I CO Monroe PYramid 4-2361 'OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO0DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO0--4100 ers seemed to agree that planning and zoning eventually necessary; however, Monroe may well not be ready for such a step at this time, they said. Young Whitfield, speaking on be- • half of his school director candi- dacy, said that he had no great ambitions other than to do his best to see that the community offered the best education possible to its youth. "I have a youngster in the first grade--I hope to see that he gets a good education, cluded that he was sincerely in- terested in the school system and its role in the community. Inasmuch as le was the only di- rector candidate voters elected not to press any questions, and it was so done. Taking the floor on behalf of the $20,000 or bout five-mill special schooI renovation levy was Supt. Thom E. Marsden. Explaining that he was zant of the tax burden, he called upon the" electorate to' remember they were educated ]n and it was given freely. He extend- ed an open invitation to voters to explore .the schools and needs. He left no doubt that there would be additional levies in the future to keep Monroe schools up to par, but pointed out that the burden was light, and would be .better to con- tinue so rather heavy assessment. "Give the boys and same break you got," he urged. Calling upon voters to base their decision upon the proposition, he declared: "The issue is not Marsden, nor Ken chilaty chairman) nor Varnum Hewitt (a former director), but the needs of our youth," he declared. The superintendent then went on to outline specifically the need for the levy and answer questions from the floor, among them being: A question from Follis -- who stated that he bad been approached by a Sultan school board, director who expressed an interest in con- solidating the Monroe and Sultan high schools -- asking Marsden's opinion. In answer, Marsden  said the move obviously would have to come from the people of the two districts. A question as to the use of tbe defunct Park Place school in the event of the need classroom space, the answer being the building had been condemned because of fire hazards, bu eli- gz,'ole for renovation should the peo- ple wish to bear the cost.
