Widrl'n Twirlers Set Square Dance Lessons Average weekly earnings of pro- duction vorkers in Washington's manufacturing industries reach- ed a new all-time high of $1_12.40 in June, Otto S. Johnson, acting commissioner of the Employment Security Department, announced. This figure, based on prelimi- nary reports, exceeds by 33 cents the previous record high set in February and tied in April, both of this year. It is also $1.01 above the May 1962 average and, due 'both to a longer work week and to an over-the-year increase of 11 cents in average hourly earnings, is $6.02 higher 1hart in June of 1961. June average hourly earnings at $2.81 were practically unchang- ed from those of May. Trends in earnings were mixed for .both durable goods and nondurables with durable goods showing a small decrease and nondurable goods showing a slight increase. The most significant decreases oc- curred in miscellaneous durable goods; the printing, publishing, and allied industries; and in the stone, clay, and glass products industry. Notably higher hourly earnings 'for paper and allied pro- ducts and for non-electrical ma- chinery partially offset the de- creases. Weekly hours, at 40.0, were one- hag hour above the May .average. Industry trends in hours were ex- tremely mixed tfor both durable and nondurble goods, but in each case the increases more than off- set the decreases. The most sig- nificant increases in hours occur- red in miscellaneous durable goods, the food industries, the petroleum refining and related industries, the lumber and wood products in- dustries, transportation equipment, and in chemicals and allied por- ducts. Substantially lower hours occurred in furniture and fixtures; the stone, day, and glass products industry; miscellaneous nondur- able goods; ,errous metals; the printing, publishLug and allied in- dustries; and in nonelectrical ma- chinery. In contract construction, aver- age weekly earnings of $140.01 were $8.22 aelow those of May due to lower average weekly hours, largely restflting from la- bor-management disputes involv- ing ironworkers, carpenters, and teamsters. Research Center Tree Improvement Program Company announced today the ad- clifton of a Sorest geneticist to its forestry research staff in a move to step up efforts to produce su- perior trees. Royce Cornelius, managing for- ester, said Dr. RObert K. Camp- bell of Chehalis has joined the staff of the company's Forestry Research Center in Centralia, Wash. Campbell formerly was an assistant professor of forest gene- tics at the University of Washing- ton. Cornelius said the appointment will permit Weyerhaeuser to ac- celerate tree improvement activi- ties and to launch new studies to further production of high quality seeds. The objective is superior trees that will grow raster, pro- duce higher quality woad and be more resistant to insects and dis- ease than timber now standing in the forests. Although Weyerhaeuser's re- search staff has conducted exeri- ments in cross - pollination and other t r e e improvement tech- niques, it has not previously had a fulltime geneticist. The Centralla staff includes specialists in soils, physiology, regeneration, silvi- culture, management, diseases, wildlife and insects. Campbell was a forest geneti- cist for the Industrial Forestry As- sociation at Nisqually, Wash., from 1955 until joining the university's faculty in 1958. A native of Highmore, S.D., he obtained a B.A. in botany from Tacoma, Aug. 9--Weyerhaeuser Montana State University in 1951, an M.S. in genetics from the Uni- versity of Washington in 1954 and a Ph.D. in forest genetics from Washington in 1958.
