Increases Staff Funds Berry Lab The appropriations committee of the United States Sonar6 has' voted to increase funding for the. Appalachian Fruit and Berry Research Station at Bardane. The increase, contained in an amendment offered by U.S. Senator Robert Byrd, increases from $900,000 to $I,300,000 the monies designated to staff the facility with eleven scientists and about 22 support personnel. A House committee already approved $900,000 for the federal fiscal year beginning in October. The House would have to agree vith the Senate appropriation. If the measure gets final approval in both houses of Congress, the facility is ex- pected to begin operations this Fall. As yet, the only move toward staffing the fruit and berry facility is toward hiring an administrator. Three candidates are being considered. Presently, Jack Ellis, a USDA administrator, is overseeing the final construction phase of the operation. Ellis says it should he completed this month. Eventually, the facility should employ about 25 scientists, whose expertise ranges from horticulture to agricultural engineering; and 50 support personnel.
