Larry Biles, area extension forester, will be avialable Tuesday to assist local land owners with timber marketing. Request for assistance should be made at the Jewell County Extension office. Infrequent sales makes it almost impossible for the owner to keep up with the current market value of the various timber species according to Biles. Most timber sales are a result of a buyer making an offer of a certain sum for a number of trees. Generally this is the first time the owner realizes that his timber has value. Biles says before selling timber it is best to get at least three or four bids in order to establish the fair market value. This is especially true with black walnut sales. A list of timber buyers that have pur- chased timber in this area of the state is available at the county extension office. Landowners should also have a written agreement before selling time. A written agreement is important as many problems have resulted from selling timber on a verbal agreement. Written agreements for timber sales are Ideal Transfers Darby To Seattle Announcement was made this week by the Ideal Cement Company of the transfer of Larry Darby from the com- pany's Superior plant to its Seattle plant.

It was in 1879 that the ingenious inventor, Thomas Alva Edison, whose birth date we honor this week, demonstrated how electric energy could be used to produce light. Since that time, the uses that have been found for electricity in the home, in business and industry, and on farms and ranches have become virtually infinite in number. Today, electricity is our nation's most widely used source of energy. Recognizing the accelerating depletion of other sources of energy and the ever-increasing requirements for electricity, it is imperative that everybody join in taking steps to eliminate waste of our nation's energy resources.
