G! lnserance 900viEends To Be Sent In January Mason County holders of GI in- surance will begin receiving 1964 dividends Jan 2, to make a New Year start off happily, under an accelerated payment program or- dered by President Lyndon B. Johnson. In response to President John- son&apos;s directive for the earliest )os- sihle payment of the $234-million GI insurance dividend for 1964 o which $4.032,900 will go to Wash- ington State veterans, the Veter- ans, Administration Said the first checks would reach veterans by Jan. 2, In reporting this. John B Kirsch. Ma-ager of the Seattle VA Regional Office. said payments to all of the 80,902 veterans in Wash- ington State participating in the dividend would be colTIpleted in record time - by Jan. 25. The President. Dec, 8, ordered the accelerated payments as a stimulant to the economy. In the first speed payment of a dividend, ordered by President Kennedy in 1961. payments were completed lay March 17, The step- ped up payment of the 1963 divi- dend was completed last Jan. 31. The VA plans to issue the 1964 dividend checks by next Jan. 25 will cut a week from the previous record processing time of 31 days in 1963. THE DIVIDEND payments in 1962, and izi the years prior to 1961, were made throughout the entire year on the anniversary dates of the individual insurance policies, Of the total distribution of $234- million, $15-million will go to about 225.000 World War I vet- erans holding U. S. Government Life Insurance (USGLI) policies. The remaining $219-million will go to 4,500,000 World War II veter- ans who hold National Service Life Insurance NSLI) policies. Korean Conflict veterans ho1 non-participating policies that do not provide regular annual divi- dent payments, The regular dividends are pri- marily a return to the po'icyhold- ers of part of their premium pay- ments since the death rate among GI policyholders continues to be lower than the rate upon which the payments were established hy law. Kirsch reminded policyholders that the preparing and mailing of dividend payments are automatic and require no correspondence from veterans or their families. In fact. such correspondence might delay the dividend distri: GREETING BY LESLEE EINARSSON bution process he said Ii Age 11 Mt. View School -----' "'-" .... . " " 6 . .....

Foresters Hear Discussion Of S}a!e Re!orestation Pr00i!am s Southwest ing the repe He added that Washington Chapter of the So- ciety of American Foresters list- ened to a panel discussion o Washington States' Reforestation program recently at the Lewz and Clark Hotel in Centralia. Lyle Hojem, Assistant Division Supervisor of the Department of Natural Resources in charge o Reforestation and Nurseries, was assisted in the presentation by Boyd Wilson. Forest geneticist, Charles Butler. Reforestation Cost Analysis; and Mike Finnis, Ro. forestation Research Director. Hojem pointed out that t]'e State is responsible for the proper management of 3.4 million acrc, of land, 2.3 million acres of which is forest land. A portion of this nanagement responsibfAty entai the rehabilitation and reforesta- tion of non-stocked land and tere- fter to keep it 100 pcreen: pro.. ]uetive. The ,eo:'est.qtion of !and is ac compli.hed by hand plarti::;, seeq- rag, scarification or land clearing and chemi::a] brush control. REFORESTATION of state lands was first begun in 1937 by CCC planting crews and has bee carried on continuously through ast season when' 2.5 mil!i0n seed- lings were planted Butler ex- plained that planting costs have been on the increase since the late 30's when the first project was ca rried on. At that time total costs were normall 5 to 8 dollars an acre and hove increased to a maximum of 40 dollars an acre last year, In the winter of 1949-50 WiN son expliined, the Hrst aerial seeding project was carried on us- ing helicopters to disseminate the conifer seed. This method of re- forestation has been used in s.:, mcrexsing amount since that time. Butler stated that aerial seeding is usually accomplished on one or two year old logging. One half pound of Douglas Fir seed per acre is the usual appli- cation but in some cases other species are used in varying amounts Seeding with helicopter costs from $3.75 per acre up to $13.65 per acre depending on the specie and amount of seed applied. Finnis stated that in order to min- imize the amount seed lost to small seed eating rodents all seed is treated wth a chemical repellent called Endrin. He went on to say, however, that additional researcl is nceSed in this field to develop more effective methods of apply- all the early attempts of aerial seediug in the Northwest resultod in complete failure due to the high populations of rodents in forest areas. It has only been since the development of repellents that di- rect -'ceding has been possible, On some areas where brush en- cr,ehment has occurred, some form of site preparation is neces- sary prior to planting or seeding. This in accomplished either by scarification or the aerial appli- cation of chemicals by helicopter. Scarification m merely the remov- al of brush and ferns with large crawler tractors equipped with [a,cl clearing blades. Butler stat- nd that this operstion costs be- :v'een $21 and $37 an acre. AERIAL SPRAYING is normal- ly accomplished on land where ncncommercial stands of alder :inemaple or other brush specie vve overtopped the existin stand )i conifer reproduction. Wilson )oi]te2 out that unless some ac- "ion is taken in these areas, the conifers would eventually lose the ')stile for moisture and light and the land would be lost for com- mercial forest production. Butler explained that they are not concerned with killing -he brush, but only in setting it bacg 'Dug enough to release the coni.fer understory. The common chemi- cals used in brush control are 2, 4-D, which is used as a foliar :pray on alder during the summer months, and 2. 4. 5-T which  applied to vinemaple and ether brush during the late winter or early spring as a dormant spray. The average cost of aerial spray- ing is 5.77 dollars per acre for foliar application and 7.51 dol- ars per acre for dormant applica- ';ion. Finnis discussed some,of the ex- perimental-work. being carried on with new chemicals to control oth- er plants such as bracken fern and salmonberry. Hojem concluded the program by'emphasizicg the i-np0rtanee ot eeping complete and detailed cost records on all refcreStation pro- jects. He said that the states pro- gram i to be completely re-eval- uated ii the near future to deter- mine which methods now in use are actually economical in view o the result s obtained. the next meeting will be helc': in Aberdeen on January 10 The- subject of' the will program be Forest Recreation. lLilliwaup Club To Have Card Party Fr'day Night LILLIAF n-c:?
