Forest Fire Record In 1963 Is Good In View Of Hazard Potential • Pacific Northwest citizens have received a Christmas present ahead of time in the form of thou- sands of acres of forests that were saved from fire in 1963. J. Herbert Stone, regional for- ester of the U. S. Forest Service, said that although 1,823 fires blackened 7,345 acres of National Forest lands in Oregon and Wash- ington during 1963, the record is considered good in view of the high fire hazard stemming from the Columbus Day, 1962, blowdown timber. In the 1962 season, by c°mpari- son,'1,228 fires on Pacific North- west forests were held to 3,672 acres. With tons of +downed trees and debris littering timber lands in Oregon and "Washington after the Oct. 12, •1962, storm, foresters were fearful that 1963 would be one of the worst fire years in history: THE FACT THAT it didn't hap- pen can be attributed to three factors, Stone • pointed out: "We had fine cooperation from the forest risers. The weather was favorable. And fire suppression forces carried out their work quickly and effectively, resulting in an average loss of only 4.02 acres per fire ou the National Forests." Of the total fires in 1963 on National Forests in Oregon and Washington, 565 were man-caused, while the rest were blamed on lightning. This is a far better re- cord  than the national average, which shows tliat 9 out of 10 fires are man-caused. COOL AND WET weather of 1963 made it one of the best fire years weatherwi3e, since 1948, according to Forest Service mete- orologists. There were some cri- tical periods, particularly east of the Cascades. The biggest fire of the year on the National Forests of the Pacific Northwest Region came late in the season, Oct. 21, when a fast-moving blaze swept 2,900 acres of range and timber land near Chelan on the renat- chee National Forest. Stone praised Northwest news media for their efforts in stimu- lating public awareness of the in- creased fire danger resulting from the hlowdown hazard+ He cautioned that much of the debris from the Columbus Day, ]962, storm and susequent salvage logging will still be on the ground in 1964, and a severe fire year is considered a better-than-even pro- spect. Christian Science Services Are Set The s'cientific nature of Christ- ianity will be explored in next Sunday's Bible Lesson at all Christian Science churches. Scriptural readings will include this verse from Isaiah 51:4): "Harken unto me, my people; anO give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me. and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people." Selections from the denomina- tional textbook will include these lines: "Our Master taught no mere theory, doctrine, or belief. It was the divine Principle of all real being which he taught and prac- tised" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 26). The Lesson is entitled. "Christ- ian Science." The University of Washington is one of nine major institutions of the Western Hemisphere tak- ing part in an Organization for Tropical Studies to conduct teach- ing and research programs in tro- pical biology. by Lane Premo The annual Girl's Club toy drive at Shelton High School last weel netted a good collection for the Jaycees, who are in charge of the community dtve.
