Va. W - A Republican proposal Hint the House of Delegates consider the butlgel bill while sitting 'as- a committee of-the whole apparently, was face- lo-facc with considerable Democratic oppos'lioh loday. Minority . Leader Cecil Underwood (H-Tylcr) said that unless parliamentary procedures block him he'll propose that the House organize itself as a committee of the whole al the 30-day budget session of the Legislature in January. He also believes that Hie House subsequenlly might 'divide itself into four or five subcommittees, each with an assigned portion of Ihe budget bill. He explained: "These subcommittees could conduct public hearings and call department heads as witnesses. They would be asked to explain how they arrived at their .budget estimates, and just how they planned to spend the money." - . . House Speaker W. E. Elannery (D-Logan) and Majority Leader Martin Bowles (D-Kanawha) scoffed al Underwood's proposed "reform" in Hie method of considering State budgets. LUMBERMEN AT WORK—Almost two-thirds of West Virginia's area is in commercial forest land, it is'the only stale to lie entirely within- the Appalachian hardwood region, and the woods and mills employ one out of every ten workers in the state. The top photo shows lumberjacks using a crosscut saw on a yellow poplar at Lost Branch in Mingo County. The' jower picture shows sawmill workers treating mine ties at Gilbert in the same county. West Virginia coal mines use 35 different kinds of wood.

Forestry has come a long way iince Caplain John Smith reported 'the counlry most over growne vilh pyncs" in IMS. Early sellers hewed some of Ihe timber nlo homes and barns, but most of I was burned at community "log- •ollings." Today, almost two-thirds of West Virginia's area is in commercial oresl land, providing the resources or a two-billion-dollar industry. Unique Location ft is the only stale to lie entirely vithin the Appalachian hardwood region. Roy White and 14,000 ither persons are employed in the voods and mills—one out of every 0 workers in the stale. »Thern are hundreds of sawmills. Some planls turn out finished products. They make wooden heels at Rainclte, pool tables in Poca- lonlas County, shovel handles al arkersburg, and clothespins at Hichwood. Native white oak is converted nlo barrel slaves in Braxlon Coun- y. . The market is wide because he U. S. Bureau of Standards insists thai whisky musl be aged in vliite oak barrels before it may be called bourbon. Yet, most of West Virginia's com- nercial lumber production is" exported lo olhcr stales because Ihe slate hasn't developed mamifac- .uring of hand producls for which he woods are ideally suited. 'Arthur D. Little Co. assessed this potential. in its recent industrial survey of Wesl Virginia. Woocl- vorking is one of four industries ov. Marland is aiming for in his current "sales" tours across the country. Wesl Virginia, in 1949 cut about 175 million board feel of saw lim- >er—trees about nine inches liameter. Some 17 billion board 'eel were left standing. Eternal Industry Coal could be mined out in hundreds of' years". But forest Indus- ries say timber culling can con- .imie at its current rate as long as the land is intacl. "Counting trees of all sizes," said a Wcsl Virginia industry spokesman; "we're growing wood wice as fast as its used." Does this mean a tree is plantei every lime one is felled? Thai question usually brings a chuckle. As generous as nature is in Wesl Virginia, foresters say. it's about like asking if a farmer re-sec-Jj In's meadow every time he cuts a crop of hay. Wood is like any other crop, (hey say, except thai harvest time only comes once every 20 years or so. Except where land is repeatedly burned or overgrazed, nature .does a replanting job man cannot match. . On one industrial tree farm in Fayelle County, open fields were protected. from grazing cattle for! Five years and 5,000 lo 7.000 seed-] lings per acre came up. Thai many could never grow inlo .cutable titn- icr, however, because of natural competition for sunlight and nourishment. To prevent Irees from dying a natural death without being useful, man thins the stands by cutting a free crop from time fo lime. Good management practices grow more wood per acre. Left alone, there could be as few as 12 frees per acre eventually. An oak cut in Fayelle County in J952 had 357 annual rings and measured 54 inches in diameter at For Sale: frame severely burned areas, abandoned or depleted agricultural lands. The Conservation Department says one million acres of steep and eroded agricultural land needs reforestation in West Virginia. Abounds In Hardwoods Almost 30 per cent of Wesl Virginia's plentiful timber is hardwoods, such as. white oak. red oak, yellow poplar, black walnut, ash. maple, beech and hickory. West Virginia hardwoods are broad leafed Irees thai shed their leaves every fall. Hardwoods aren't necessarily "harder" than soflwoods. but they're gcncrallj more valuable. SolUvoods arc usually evergreens. Every hardwood found in West Frostburg 1388 Virginia now is considered usable for one or more purposes in coal mines. A survey of nine major- coal producers in the stale found; them using 33 species of wood/ Mosl of the sawmills arc scalier-, cd in the southern- two-thirds of; ;he state. Heaviest production is in Nicholas and Crecnbricr coun-j Lies. Four companies still have- Lheir own railroads. ! They often build roads to isolated areas, so crews can fell the Irees and buck them into logs or skid them out in tree lengths if terrain permits. Mechanized equipment at the road hauls them to the log dump, where they are put on trucks for (he mill.
