In accepting the leadership of the program, Richmond said that the most important fact to recognize about drug abuse is that it is a symptom of other underlying problems. Scouting's efforts to prevent drug abuse are aimed at eliminating conditions that foster it. Richmond also pointed out that Scouting does not expect to solve the drug abuse problem, but that it can apply the resources of the committee members to make more contributions toward the ultimate solution of the problem within the methods of the organization. A group of volunteers and professional scout leaders including Sel Vander Wegen, Council President; Dean Palmer, Council Commissioner; and James Phillips, Scout Executive, will attend a regional orientation Oct. 22 and 23 at the Ridpath tlotel in Spokane. Operation Reach was developed after a national in-depth study of the drug abuse problem in wide discussions with young people and adult authorities. The program is designed to be used by young people on their own and on their friendsbehalf. It is not just anothereducational project on drugs, but an action plan, Richmond said. Hurry!

The district now has seven Scout Troops, seven Cub Packs and four Explorer Posts. Jaycee Group The Bellingham Junior Chamber of Commerce today sent out by mail several thousand questionnaires to members of the Legislature, working press, Precinct Committeemen, and a vast cross section of registered voters throughout the state of Washington to determine the popularity of a Presidential Primary for Washington. Paul Elvig of Ferndale and Past-Vice-President of the Washington State Jaycees will chair the initial polling phase. If a broad section of the State electorate indicate approval of a Presidential Primary, the Bellingham Jaycees will file an initiative measure January 7, 1972, with the Secretary of State to seek such a primary following the same guide lines, format, and time schedule that is presently used in the State of Oregon. Presently the method of delegate selection is through the precinct caucus concept which, at best, is hit and miss. The Jaycees expect to meet with elected state officials during the next two weeks, examine the fifty state election laws for various suitable election codes, and to prepare the exact text of the proposed initiative measure. The Bellingham Junior Chamber of Commerce has adopted the Presidential Primary as its major project for 1971-1972 because they feel that the Presidential selection process should involve all the people.

The seven-member subcommittee was appointed by State Sens. Martin J. Durkan and Harry B. Lewis, co-chairmen of the State Forest Tax Committee. Chairman of the new public information group is Rep. Henry Backstrom of Arlington. Durkan and Lewis said the group will soon launch an Beams At WSU Two Washington State University researchers said this week that research conducted at WSU proves that high-strength beams can be made "with complete assurance" from low grade lumber. Roy Pellerin and Dr. Dee Strickler of the Wood Technology Section in WSU's College of Engineering Research Division said a tension proof-loading technique has been developed at WSU that supports their assertion. The WSU researchers spent the past summer testing the reliability of the technique. In a test conducted this week at WSU, more than 30,000 pounds of concentrated load were required to break a glue-laminated timber beam, and the WSU researchers say similar structural members of 16 laminated two-by-six inch boards can withstand a minimum weight of 28,000 pounds. The proofloading technique was demonstrated to representatives of industry' and the American Institute of Timber Construction, which supported the project. Strickler and Pellerin spent several weeks during the summer handpicking about 20,000 board feet of two-by-sixes to be used in the tests. Selection was made at four western Oregon laminating plants. The WSU researchers tested 24 beams, each 40 feet long and 24 inches deep, comprising an initial weight of about 1,200 pounds each. Only the two outer-most tensile laminations of each beam were subjected to the proofloading technique The individual two-by-sixes intended for critical areas of the beams were purposely selected from lower quality material than is presently accepted in the laminating industry. "The idea," they said, "Is that if a board can withstand a proofload once, it can do so m service no matter what its appearance. intensive public information th program aimed at the state's Law. forestland owners in particular that ar s for his and the public in general, designah, 'ncluded "Knowing the provisions of this 1972 asses~ lodney new tax law is vitally important "and it will to all Washington forestland tasks to see owners big and small," the forestland own~ co-chairmen said.
