OLTMAN SAID THE only sal- ary increases provided for in the budget are increments under the salary schedule for teachers who increase their tenure or get ad- ditional degrees. The appropria- tion for teacher's salaries is the only one in the budget which shows any substantial increase, from $736.000 in the 1962-63 bud- get [o $756.800 for the coming year.

' w,?:::o aS00l Tin00berecLaW Management the state legislature will make it necessary to hire additional help for the County Assessor's office, County Assessor Willis Burnett, told the county commission Mon- day. Burnett said that as June 13, the responsibility for the admin- istration of classified forest land under the Reforestation Act would be transferred from the Depart- ment of Natural Besom-cos to the assessor's office. Under the Reforestation Act, classified land which is growing timber is assessed at $1 an acre until timber is harvested at which time a yield tax of up to 12.5 per Cent is paid on the value of the timber sold. This is paid in lieu of property tax as is assessed on other real estate. It is designed to encourage land owners to grow timber by reducing the tax bur- den during the time when there is no income from the timber crop, ALSO GOING INTO effect June 13 is'an increase in a:ssessed valuation on classified timber land from $1 to $2 an acre.

The number of applications is increasing, and will will continue to increase as the timber lands in the county get larger.
