Dobler explains that this year assign- ments will be made differently, in that every eagle watcher will be given a specific area convenient to their loca- tion or fitting in with their travel plans. Even though more than one person may count the same area, the variation in the counts will give researchers im- portant data on how counts vary from observer to observer. This information will lead to more accurate counts overall. Anyone or any group wanting to take part in the survey should contact Dobler at the Nongame office of the State Game Department in Olympia (206-754-1449) by Dec. 18 to get sur- vey forms and be assigned to an area.

"With the advent of the airtight stove, it's a fairly common phenomenon." The problem is that many people operate their stoves at too cool a temperature, according to Symons. They build a fire and let it smolder and produce a small amount of heat. While doing this, it produces more creosote than heat. "You shouldn't let the stack become cool enough to let creosote form in the chimney," Symons said. Symons recommends Keeping the stack temperature between 300 and 500 degrees (monitor it with an inexpensive stack thermometer) while the stove is in operation. As an alternative procedure, Symons recommends firing the stove up to get the heat desired, then shutting it off completely. Another approach is to light a hot fire each day during the heating season to drive off small accumulations of creosote in the stove pipe. Symons also recommends an annual chimney cleaning to remove soot deposits. Homeowners can do the clean- ing themselves with a few tools or hire a professional chimney sweep to do the job. How do you know if you have a chimney fire, and what do you do if one occurs? "A lot of people say it sounds like a jet coming through their living room," Symons said. The creosote burns off at temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees. The first thing to do is to try to close the air inlets to the stove to cut off the air supply to the fire. Call the fire department if that does not seem to work. (Dial 9-I-1 in Cheney.) After the fire is put out, Symons recommends that you inspect the stove pipes and chimney for damage caused by the high temperatures. Pay special attention to the attic where a fire could start unnoticed. Symons suggests that you check the roof and the chimney cap. You may have to replace the cap after several chimney fires weaken it. Alcohol A Problem End The I Nightmare. All White Page listings will close December 27 for Cheney and Medical Lake directories.

Creosote is a flam- mable gas by-product of burning wood. It collects in the stove pipe in the form of a transparent, oily substance.' If it ignites, a chimney fire occurs.

USDA pays the cost ol transporting the cheese and butter from federal storage facili- ties to warehouses in the states. States are then responsible for arranging distribution to food banks and other local charitable organizations which give the products to needy people. "States and local groups have done a good job of delivering the surplus cfieese and butter to an estimated 10 million people nationwide," Block said. "We are pleased that the combined federal, state and local effort has worked so well to enable these products to be used by needy households." While the cheese distribution has been underway almost a year, the butter distribution was announced in May and deliveries began in August. So ,far USDA has delivered to states more than 135 million pounds of cheese and 8.2 million pounds of butter. States have ordered nearly 195 million pounds of cheese and 42 million pounds of butter. The dairy products are bought under the federal dairy price support pro- gram. Curreni]y UgDA is holding in uncommitted inventory about 800 million pounds of chees, valued at $1.2 billion and about 400 million pounds of butter worth about $640 million.
