od of timber selection and conservation, yet we find we have followed a very profitable method of utilizing our land holdings.

"In 1947, I began some forest stand improvements of my own by removing inferior woods and diseased and damaged trees, which cutting will permit the young healthy profitable species to produce good timber more rapidly. That cutting was a thinning operation. This thinning provided an excellent yield of mine material per acre. A good cover crop was left on the land to grow and develop into a new crop of quality timber. It is estimated that with the completion of this thinning, the yield will have been approximately 300,000 board feet."

THE MONONGAHELA NATIONAL FOREST has recently published a brochure that should be of great value to our Tableland Family. It is descriptive of five tours originating at Elkins, West Virginia. The brochure can be produced by writing to Monongahela National Forest Headquarters, Elkins, West Virginia.

From Charleston Gazette of Tuesday, October 6th

Calvin W. Price, homespun editor of a country weekly, received a permanent memorial to his name yesterday. The State Conservation Commission formally named a new 11,000 acre state forest in Price's home county of Pocahontas as "The Calvin W. Price State Forest."

Price is the veteran editor and publisher of the Pocahontas Times. His personal comments in the weekly have been widely quoted and the editor has made countless public appearances as an after-dinner speaker.

The new state forest consists of a boundary purchased by the state from the New River Company of Mount Hope. It is located in the southern end of Pocahontas County, with some three or four hundred acres spreading over into Greenbrier County.

The commission said the forest would be used chiefly as a public hunting domain. It is located adjacent to Watoga State Park, in the vicinity of Marlinton, the Pocahontas County seat and Price's home town.

FESTIVALS IN THE TABLELAND. State, County, and InterCounty Festivals are becoming a year-round promotional activity throughout the Tri-State area. The Festivals for 1953 broke all attendance records. The pageantry, parades, exhibits, all reflected a high degree of thoughtful
