lives in OUR part of Germany;
NOT the Russian part) is a psy

Fires Fought In
Blazes Originate In
Forest Supervisor M. M. Nelson
said today that 235 men were
figh'lng two fires in the northern
section of the Umpqua National
forest east of Cottage Grove.
The two blazes helped put the
state's live forest fire area well
over the 10.000-acre mark as fire
threatened homes in several west

Both Umpqua forest fires broke
out Monday afternoon in logging
company slash areas. Nelson said.
The largest of the two blazes, on
Adams creek southeast of Disston,
has already covered over 200
acres and is still raging out of
control. A total of 180 firefight
ers from the Forest service and
five logging and mill companies
are battling the fire.
The smaller fire, a 100-acre
blaze on Patterson creek, north
east of Disston, also started from
slash burning and stiread Into 100
acres of green timber. Nelson
said the Patterson creek fire Is
believed to be under control with
55 men, two "cats" and two tank
