FINANCES IN THE FORESTS Twenty-three y e a r s ago, the citizens of this state, of which you are a part. met and founded the Keep Wash- ington Green Association. In e f f e c t, you incorporated a non-profit organiz a t i o n to help protect y o u r profits, payrolls and green scenery. Its responsibility S T O P CARELESS MAN-CAUSED FIRE BEFORE IT STARTS. Between 1920 and 1940. an average of 180,000 acres burned each year. Between 1940 and 1960. only 30,000 acres burned each year. In 1940; when you founded Keep Washington Green, 8 man- caused forest fires were star- ted for every 10.000 people living in Washington. Today, this figure has been reduced by 50;, even though this state's pouulation has grown by 1,300,000 in the last 23 years. You receive the bene- fits of 23 years of Keep Washington Green public in- formation and education pro- grams. Old burns are regreen- ing and young and old growth timber stands are protected. This is the crisis at Kee Washington Green. The As- sociation has nearly exhaus- ted its financial resources in its campaign to mect the serious blowdown problem. Reserves are not available to meet the demands of the pre- dicted long, dry fire season. We can not relax our efforts during the months ahead. The lack of adequate funds to follow through with our fore)st fire prevention cam- "paign during a period of ex- treme fire danger could have disastrous results. What is it. worth to you to stop a fire before it starts. You, your job or property could be directly affected. ; Make your contribution to Keep Washington Green an expression of your financial interest in protecting Wash- ington's green and growing forests. For further informa- tion on how you can help, write Keep Washington A hurricane, born in the SoUth China Sea on October 12, 1962, swept across the Pa- cific Ocean, hit the coast of California, turned north for 1,500 miles through the Douglas Fir coastal forests and blew itself out in British Columbia. Forty people died during this storm; p o w e r lines were blown down; streets were clogged w i t h trees; and property damage amounted to millions of dol- lars. Most of us will long re- member the crisis that oc- cured during this stormthe crisis caused by the storm, however has not ended. The October, 1962 wind- storm dumped five billion board feet of timber on the ground in Washington State. rI'hs is equivalent to the amount of timber harvested in this state each year. This timber provides 66,000 full- time forest jobs, $295,000,- 000 irt payrolls, $900,000,000 in forest products and sup- port for 225,000 people. This 'indstorm damage, will affect nearly every forest industry and its employees in Wash- ington for several years to come. The forest industry's prim e concern today is getting this timber out of the woods as soon as possible. P e r h a ps more important, they have an interest in keeping fire out of the woods. The fire hazard which has resulted from the storm is n o t restricted to blowdown areas .Windblown treetops, needles, and bran- ches beneath standing timber are creating one of the most serious fire threats in Wash- inton's history. Many forest areas will be closed because of this extreme fire hazard. This is the crisis in the woods. It affects you directly. You can help do. something about this problem.

Through their effortsand with your helpthe eventual hope is to make Wash- i, gt0rt an even more rewarding, even more prosperous state in which to live and enjoy our families. Q: Why encourage tourism anyway? Ae A good question, with ananswer that you know already. Pecuniary compensation. Remuneration. Do-re-mi. M-O-N-E-Y. Possibly more money than anyone imagines. Tourism is now Washlngton's #4 industry. - , . . Those tourists we d,scuss so calmly here spend a cool mdhon dollars a Bay in our state every year. (Doing a little quick arith- metic, that's 365 million dollars a year, not counting bonanza eal like 1962 when Fair tourists spent a whopping 442 mil- ilon dollars!)These visitors come from Canada and all fifty trte% not to mentmn the Orient and Europe and probably the Moon someday.
