Thomas A.

Library trustees to meet in Lacey The Timberland Regional Library Board of Trustees will hold its third annual meeting on Thursday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m. At this meeting the board will adopt a revised 1971 budget and will also adopt the revised 1972 budget. "there will also be an election of officers for the coming year. The board will meet in the Timberland Regional Library Administrative Office at 1006 Sleater-Kinney S.E. in Lacey. The meeting is open to the public. pl Legislature, most privately owned forestlands 20 acres or more in size will be classified as "forestland" by county assessors. "But assessors normally would not include forestlands which may be considered to have a higher and better use," Flemer said,. nl Administrator of Veterans Affairs Donald E. Johnson and his Chief Benefits Director Olney Owen, Nov. 3, :4, and 5, at W~shiagton's Sheraton Park Hotel i'n"m~etings that brought together the directors of VA's 52 regional offices, 165 hospitals and six independent outpatient clinics. More than 2.7 million veterans and servicemen already have used the current G. I. Bill in its just over five years of existence, Mullen disclosed. This exceeds the 2.4 million trainees under the 13 years the Korean G. I. Bill was in effect. ica ions ere 1"he many owners of forestland which currently is being valued on a basis of highest and best use may apply for "designation" as forestland under the new law, Flemer said. "Owners of such lands are urged to inquire at their assessor's office as soon as possible," he said, "because the deadline for the application is Dec. 31 if the designation is to take effect in the 1972 assessment year." Information about how lands will be classified effective next J an. 1 is readily available at assessors" offices now, Flemer said. The designation application forms also are now available a assessors' offices. "Because unemployment is greatest among veterans with the least education, VA is actively encouraging veterans to take advantage of their education benefits in some form," the regional office director said. These benefits support college level study - with tutorial assistance when necessary. A veteran can draw benefits to complete high school and still have full entitlement to go on to college, or he can learn a trade in atechnicat school or through training on the job or on the farm. On-the-job training programs, Mullen said, are being expanded in cooperation between VA and small businesses, and a program in progress only two months has already resulted in 8,000 new programs and 12,000 new job slots nationally.
