PAGE FOUR Monroe Monitor, Monroe, Wash., June 2, 1960 OLYMPIA i ROUND-UP date to be determined later. The postponement was at the request of Stanley W. Donogh, who will (Continued from Page 1) are needed to liquidate the unfund- ed pension liability of around 200 million dollars, rather than to adopt a pay-as-you-go policy. It is esti- mated that the liability would be amortized in 50 years by .regular appropriations. There could be some changes in the law. One mat- ter under scrutiny is whether it is necessary to grant out-of-state teachers who come here ten years prior credit on their pensions. To get flds 'bonus" the teacher must serve ten years in this state, but one estimate is that it will cost the state $10,095 per individual eventually out of the retirement fund. At one time the credit was 15 years to entice teachers here to meet the teacher shortage. Some legislators say this state, now is producing enough teachers of its own to meet the need if the teach- ers are properly, distributed. Bod Itm Fails to Sell In two attempts the State Toll Bridge Authority has failed to sell a 3 million dollar bond issue to finance the proposed Biggs Rapids toll bridge across the Columbia River near Maryhlll. However, the TBA gave Paul Speer, of Odcago, the TBA financial consultant, time to try to negotiate a sale. Robert Sheppard, representing Grande and Co. of Seattle, said if Speer failed to negotiate a sale this week his associates in New York would present a proposal for financing the bridge and guarantee a bid for the bonds. Sheppard said his pro- posal would involve adoption by the TBA of a new ,bond resolution be- cause it would not conform to the terms of the resolution now in ef- fect. q Grant for Small Business Resear('h A $40,950 grant haS been made to the state by the federal Small Business Administration for six small business research projects. Four of the studies will be made by the University'of Washington, one by Washington State Univers- sity, and one by the staete Depart- ment of Commerce and Economic Development. All agencies will match the federal grant. The University of Washington re- ceived $12,000 to study a guide to proper management control for small business; how small busi- ness firms in the Pacific North- west cope with legal problems; burden to small business of collec- tion of taxes; and an evaluation of the international opportunities for small business with reference to the recent trend toward direct trading. State University received $9,000 for research and publication of a man- ual for operators of sma mote!s. The Commerce Department will at- tempt to measure the volume of goods being shipped into the state, then determine f local demand for the products is shfficient to justify production withlR the state. Boating Conference Postponed The governor's state-wide confer- ence on beating, originally sched- tried for June 1, has been post- poncd until mid-July, the exact m ii || serve as general chairman far the session. State Population Increase Preliminary census figures show that Washington State's population has increased nearly 2O per cent in the last ten years. The 1960 pop- ulation is given as 2,824,144 com- pared with 1950's figure of 2,378,- 963. The final figures will not be out until sometime in July, but no substantial change is expected. As the count has become available in detail it points up the marked trend to suburbia. Some cities have been disappointed at the small growth .they have registered but the sur- rounding fringes have blossomed out vigorously. Drop in Beer Sales We ave indebted to the Wash- ; in g ton State Liquor Control Board for the information that in April only 113,986 barrels of beer were sold throughout the commonwealth as compared with 124,839 barrels in April of 1959. The discrepancy of more than 10,095 barrels could maybe be attributed to the un- usually cool spring weather, al- though this issuppesition. The to- tal sales for the irst four months of this year are down only about 11,000 barrels, so most of the drop came in April. Dept. Moves to Deer Park Shift of the Spokane headquarters of the State Department of Natural Resources to Deer Park will take place early next year. Plans are being prepared for construction of a new $40,000 headquarters build- ing at Deer Park. Bert Cole, state land commissioner, said the deci- sion to move the headquarters was made because Deer Park is closer to areas where the department has fire suppression problems and tim- ber management projects. State Trapping Gross The State Game Department esti- mates that trappers grossed $122,- 000 from sale of about 33,657 pelts during the 1959-60 trapping season in this state. The most valuable pelt was that of the otter, which averaged $30.50 to the trapper. Other pelts included mink, raccoon and muskrat. The total catch in- cluded 24,644 muskrats, 3,993 mink and 2,140 raccoon. Flood Control Reeommendatio:z Word has been received here from U. S. Sen. Warren G. Mag- nuson that a Congressional com- mittee has recommended a $100,000 appropriation for flood control stu- dies on four Western Washington rivers. The recommendation calls fo $50,000 to ,be spent on a study of the Snohomish River, $30,000 on a study of the Skagit, and $10,000 each on the Stillaguamish and Neoksack rivers.
