Governor Albert D. Rosel- lini and officials of the Keep Washington Green Association will launch the 1963 forest and range fire prevention campaign. Dr. O. Harry Schrader, Jr., KWG president, announced the theme of the banquet: "Forest Blowdown". He stated, "Last winter's violent Pacific wind- storms dumped $250,000,000 worth of green timber intothe Northwest's lap. Wind-felled trees and debris blown from standing trees constitute the largest fire hazard to Wash- ington forest lands in recent history." Dr. Schrader extends an invitation to all sponsors and friends of Keep Washington Green to attend. LEADERS TO TRAIN Explorer leaders from the Cascade District, Boy Scouts of America, will attend, next month, three two-hour cours- es entitled "This is Explor- ing", "Explorer Leadership", and "The Explorer Program ". They will be held in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints chapel in Bellevue at 10675 N. E. 20th PI. "[~he courses will be on Thursday evenings, May 2, May 9, and May 16, begining at 7:30 p.m. under the leadership of Jay Thorpe, DistrictExplorer Cabinet Advisor.

Director Earl Cos of the SZate Department of Conser- vation announced that the Department's Division of Wa- ter Resources has just pub- fished a report on the geology and ground-water resources of northwestern King County. The report was prepared in co-operation with the Ground Water Branch of the U.S. Geo- logical Survey and is a part of an overall inventory of the water resources of the State of Washington. The text con- tains a discussion of the geo- logic formations within the study area and equates the geology with the water-bear- ing characteristics of each important water-bearing for- mation. Included are factual data such as water levels, well yields, specifications and other pertinent information for more than 3,000 wells within the study area. Also included are driller's logs of nearly 500 wells. The area covered by the re- port occupies approximately 450 square miles of north- western King County lying generally west of the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range and north of an east-west line through the City of Renton. Geologists and engineers not directly associated with the field of geo-hydrology will find the King County report a valuable reference in deal- ing with such problems as land slide problems, high- way foundation investigations; borrow areas for sand, gravel, and clay materials; foundation conditions for bridges, build- ings, and other major struc- tures; as well as other pro- blems in which anunderstand- ing of geologic principles is of major importance. Coe said that copies of the report, which contain a geo- logic map of the area, three east-west geologic cross sec- tions through the study area, and a well location map show- ing the location of each well listed in the report, may be obtained from the Department of Conservation, 335 General Administration Building, O- lyrnpia, for $2 per copy. Ex- tra sets of the geo-hydrolic maps may be obtained for $1 per set. | LIBRARIAN TO SPEAK Mrs. Bryce Carter, Issa- quah librarian, will be a panelist on the Channel 9 pro- gram "Champions of Litera- ture" at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, the sponsoring King County Public Library system re- ports.

Fourty-nine county lanes are taking part in the project and will donate one day's receipts each year for three years. Chances appear slim that any farms in the Issaquah Val- ley will become pilot projects under a new Department of Agriculture program designed to convert farm land into recre- ational land. Interest in the program local- ly is reported to be high. Keith Townsend, officer manager for the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation office in Renton, told this news- paper that, frankly, chances were slim any local farms would be singled out as pilot projects. The purpose of the program is to increase the income of the family-size farms. The govern- ment would assist the land-use conversion with a cost-sharing plan. An April 15 deadline was set for submission of prospective farms for the pilot project. Townsend said the local office received information on the program too late to do much about obtaining a large number of applications. Two Projects Offered Only two projects were sub- mitted from King County and both these came from the Maple Valley area. Townsend said if the pilot projects in the nation-wide pro- gram prove worthwhile, he looks for many more applica- tions from the Renton, Issa- quah, Kent and Auburn areas. A tentative date for the open- ing of the program is sometime in 1964.
