The special Simpson Sets Plans For Starting Cone Buying Simpson Timber Company will be buying Douglas Fir Cones this year at three buying stations. This year's cone crop appears to be the best since 1966 and with company seed inventories at the lowest, replenishment of this inventory is necessary for future company reforestation efforts. It is desirable to have at least a five year inventory of seed to tide over the lean years when few or no cones are produced. Simpson will purchase Douglas Fir cones from an area west of a north-south line through Lake Nahwatzel. This area runs north and south of Lake Nahwatzel into the Olympic mountains on north to the Olympia-Aberdeen freeway and south to the Wynoochee Valley on the west. The three buying stations are at the Matlock Store, Camp Grisdale, and Mrs. Bossard in the head of Wynoochee Valley. Beginning Sept. 11 these buying stations will be open daily until adequate inventory has been purchased. The price for Douglas Fir cones will be $2 per bushel. A number of points to remember while collecting cones are: 1. Locate cones in areas buyers will purchase from. 2. Gain permission to collect cones from land owner. 3. Determine maturity of seed within cone, a mature seed is a meaty kernel past "milk stage". 4. Check seed count from a number of cones from tree. A minimum count of 5 seed or more is standard quality and will bring the listed price. 5. Collect cones that grew during current season. 6. Avoid collecting cones with heavy insect infestation. 7. Avoid prolonged storage. Sell cones daily to buyers. 8. Keep track of where cones were collected so buyer can tag each sack of cones with correct description of location, elevation, and seed zone. Conner Honored Paul H. Conner, a 17 year member of the Port Angeles Toastmasters Club No. 25 was recently inducted into the Toastmasters International Hall of Fame at their convention in Calgary, Alberta.

The bond revenues would also provide grants for cities and counties to preserve historic sites. The State Parks Commission is responsible for the state's historic reservation program under state law enacted in 1967, and has already applied for and received federal funds totaling $108,141. "Additional federal funds can and will be sought for local historic programs," Odegaard said, "but cannot be counted on to become available in the amounts needed before the buildings that need to be preserved are lost forever. The revenues from the bonds would enable the Commission to assist cities and counties with matching funds to rescue these irreplaceable relics of the past before it's too late.'" As for the off-highway campsites, he explained that the Parks Commission and the Highways Commission are already implementing a cooperative agreement to build overnight facilities adjacent to safety rest areas on the Scenic and Recreational Highway system and other highways, using highway construction funds now and providing State Parks staff later. But he pointed out that these facilities, when completed, will still fall far short of meeting the demand. "Driving for pleasure ranks as the number one form of recreation nationwide," he said. "In Washington, thousands of recreationists seeking a place to get off the road for the night must be turned away from already filled state parks. Alternate locations for overnight camping must be built as rapidly as possible, both to protect the state parks' natural environment and to get tourists safely off the road at night.'"
