THERE'S STILL QUITE a way to go before Gordon Monten's fifth grade class can "see" a million. Students are collecting pull tabs of pop or beer cans and hope to gather a million of them so they can better understand how large that number is. By last week they had 8,000, some of which were collected as the price of admission to the Halloween Spook House. Penny Byerly (left) and Patti Euper try to imagine how many more wil be needed to reach a million. Donations of pull tabs from anyone in the area will be greatly appreciated. For the students in the old elementary school to do the job alone, each child would have to bring in about 130 tabs a day.., that's a lot of pop for one student to drink! The children in other classes in the building are helping collect the tabs for the project. Information being gathered by State about of forestlands for The Washington State county assessors.

Passed by the 1971 Legialature, the new law provides ultimately for a tax on timber at the time of harvest and does away with the "ad valorem" property tax on timber. Although the land on which timber is grown will remain under the property tax system, the law includes provisions aimed at achieving more equality and uniformity in the grading and valuation of forestlands statewide. Flemer said the Department of Revenue program to implement the new law is "right on schedule," and that bare forestland values will be established by the December 15 deadline. "Itow smoothly it is accomplished will depend in good measure on the success of this effort to gather statistics," he said.
