This is not the
Fire Marshal warning of the
usual type. There is a very ur­
gent reason for this warping.
The woods just now are filled
with military patrols with rigid
instructions to shoot public ene­
mies caught setting fire to the
Therefore it is doubly neces­
sary to be careful as military
patrols, while instructed to exer­
cise every precaution, might pos­
sibly make a mistake.
These military patrols are op­
erating in every part of Otegon
where forests are to be found.
Their location is not levealud 'for
obvious reasons. They move
from place to place and keep to
cover as much as possible. Their
task is that of hunting down
public enemies who have been
firing the Oregon forests, and
they are under orders from the
Western Department of the army
to deal instantly and vigorously
with such public enemies.
So if necessary for you to go
into the woods, be careful about
lighting fires. No doubt ¡1 would
lie better to keep out of the
woodB unless you have urgent
business therein.

Virtually unanimous sentiment
in favor of the water Krade route
for the Pacific highway between
Snleni and Jefferson was express­
ed at a heavily attended meeting
at Turner on Tuesday night at
which delegations from Aumsvil-
le, Marion, Turner and Stayton
were present Committees will
urge the state highway commis­
sion to choose this route, which
would pass through the lower
country which ¡ h without hills
und would go through Turner
an<i Marion. An opposing route
which there has been talk of
• selecting is known as “Jefferson
way” and passes over the hills.
Numerous arguments in favor
of the route through Turner and
Marion were presented. It was
shown that this route would be
on water grade and that the hill
near the state training school
would be the only one encounter­
ed. Further it was shown that
for al*out half the distance a
grading exists that would be
Suitable for immediate paving
and that but little work on grad­
ing would be necessary between
Salem and Turner.
Another argument presented
was that the Turner-Marion
route would serve a vast range
of country, including some of the
large saw- mills. Among these
points were mentioned Aums-
ville. Mill City, Lyons. Mehama,
Shaw. Sublimity, West Stayton
and Stayton. The opposition
route, it w s h pointed out would
be across numerous hills and
would serve a mere strip and not
a wide scope of country.
Judge Dunean, who presided
at the meeting Tuesday night,
will serve as chairman of the
Turner district that will confer
with the highway commission.
