AREFORESTING IN TEN YEARS PAST HAS EXCEEDED LOGGING l I SEATTLE—Cutover forest land Iin 10 western Washington coun- l ties which was restocked with I trees during the 10 years, 1930-40, I considerably exceeded the acreage ' logged off during the same time. I I Furthermore, W. G. Tilton, for- our planting project of about $100,000. Explaining the restocking during Ithe 1930-40 decade, he said: “Reinventory data for 10 coun- ties, representing five-eighths of the forest land under private man- agement, shows that 547,000 acres of cutover land were restocked during that time. Cuttings took place on 479,000 acres. Fire Main Problem “But if the amount of restocked ,cutovers burned over during the Isame period in these same coun- ties were added to the restocked I acreage, as revealed by forest sur- ‘vey faces, we would find that 40 per cent more acreage was put into I “This means a total annual cost of est engineer of the West Coast [Lumbermen's and Pacific North-' Iwest Loggers Association, told.

Records show that an average of more than 700 Amer- ican homes are damaged or de- stroyed every day by fire, and an average of 20 people a day, die in fires or as a result of fires. The Christmas tree has long been recognized as a fire hazard. A freshly cut tree does not ignite easily because of the moisture, present. The moisture soon evap- I crates and the tree becomes 'dry. Christmas trees are especially hazardous due to the fact that' they contain resinous substances and that many people retain their trees too long. Some of the contributing causes of Christmas tree fires are make- shift lights with unapproved elec- tric strings; wrong method of in- serting lights in line; improper sockets, and sockets in which the brass part comes flush with the outside, thus making it possible for the metallic tinsel used for decoration, to cause short circuits. l I I I I I ..and I I 216-J-1 ' I centered with a ‘ I ty Moon, 19, both of Shelton, atI I l court SHELTON-MASON Lincoln P.-T.
