Wahinon State Timber Cut In 1962 Sets Record Washington State's 1962 timber cut was the largest since timber harvest data was first compiled by the Dept. of Natural Resources in 1949 Land Commissioner Bert Cole announced today. The 1962 timber harvest of 5.- 051,344.090 board feet tops the previous 1956 record by 16,342,000 board feet. Of the 1962 volume, only 11,151,- 000 board feet was blowdown tim- ber from the Oct.. ]962 wind- storm in Western ashington. The total volmne of salvage material. including blowdown, removed from Western VCashington State and pri- vate lands during 1962 was 34.- 996000 board feet less than was removed from these lands in 1961. Blowdown timber data is available onlv for state and private lands. GREEN TIMBER volumes re- moved from Western "Washington stale and private lands in 1962 exceeded those harvested during 1961 by 351,674 000 board feet. In Eastern Washington the 305.037.000 board feet of timber harvested on state and private lands was 29.507.000 board feet less than the 1961 cut. LEWLg COUNTY, which in 1961 dropped from first place for the first time since Department of Natural Resources timber harvest data compilations began in 1949, regained the title of Washington's number one timber producing county, by out-producing Skaman- ia County by 115.091,000 board feet. Mason County ranked 12th in timber production in both 1961 and 1962. The 1962 production in the county was 139.809,000 com- pared to 125.822,000 in 1961, an increase of 13,987,000 board feet. Drlnk , glaeeN of Milk every day Bremerton Man i /njured in Traffic Accident A Bremerton man is in Tacoma General Hospital being treated for a skull fracture received in a one- car accident on Highway 21 east: of Alderbrook Inn Tuesday. The victim, Donald Faull, 21, was the driver of a car which went out of control andhit a tree. He was taken to Harrison Me- morial Hospital in Bremerton and later transferred to Tacoma Gen- eral Hospital. A passenger in the car. Robert Makins, 16. Bremerton. was treat- ed for minor injuries and releas- ed. The State Patrol. which investi- gated the accident said Faull was traveling' northeast on Highway 21 when his car hit the right sh0nlder of the road while it w ts making a left hand turn. The vehi- cle crossed the road, hit a tree on the left side of the road. spun down the roadway about 100 fee. and came to rest on the ed'e o the canal. CORRECT|ON GENTER (Continued from page 1) ers located strategically through- out the Corrections Center," Lloyd said. "For maximum security rea- sons there will only be one ent- rance to the institution." The main gate wnl be on the west side of the Corrections Center when it is completed, he said. As if all this weren't enough to quell the erstwhile intentions of an escapee, "a perimeter road will be laid surrounding the fence and institution on the outside" Lloyd said, He went on to say that the perimeter road and inside the first fence will be patrolled "especially at night". It's quite apparent that the peo- ple building the Wshington Cor- rections Center don't want any- body to escape. It seems every possible precaution is being taken to erase the possibility. To tell you the truth I don't think I would take that chance.
