receipts from th foreet reeervea and

His Hip. early In the Summer, through
t ika fnrMt reeervva of the
West, convinced Secretary Houston of
the necessity for early opening of the
various reserves, and ha returned to
Wasbtnrton firmly believing tnai more
and better roads are today the first
Bd of the grrat reserve system.
Not only would an efficient system of
roads through the forest reserves be of
great beaeilt to the forest rangera and
to settlers living within their confines,
but In the Secretary e opinion, roads
would greatly encourage agricultural
settlement and would be of equal bene
fit to communities outside the reserves
but adjacent to them.
Cavermaveat De Its Share.
The Secretary, moreover, waa greatly
Impressed with the road-bulldlng activ
ity of many of the Western states, and
believes the Government should do Its
share by bulWlng all necessary roads
through the forest reserves. With this
view of the Secretary, toe roresi rr
Ice Is la hearty accord, and a recent
statement Issued by that bureau, com
menting oa the Secretary's plan, says:
-This policy would appiy eaciusiveiy
In tboeo counties where there Is a con
siderable area of forest reserve land so

reserves are not . subject to taxation.
would aid In the nrotectlon and devel
epment of tho forest resources, and
would remove the one barrier which In
a fur places prevents farmers from im
mediately enjoying the benefits of the
Read Balls' tag Big Probles.
"Millions of acres of farm lands at
today undeveloped because of a lac a
of good roads. In opening , any new
country road building constitutes
hard problem for the settlers. At first,
while the settler Is struggling to erect
his home and farm buildings and to
dear his land, he usually cannot afford
to pay high taxes or otherwise contrlb
tite toward the expense of road build
Ing. The National forests comprise the
remotest and least settled regions ol
the country. In msny cases farming In
these localities is still pioneering, un
ecr as difficult conditions aa ever have
axlsted In the United States. One of the
principal reasons for the failure to de
velop tho large areas of excellent sgrl
cultural land which He near the forests
is the lack of roads.
The Government Is trying to meet
.this problem la two ways first, by
public Improvements being made on
the National forests, and second by the
direct contribution to the counties of
a share In the forest receipts.
Impraveaaeata Benefit Settler.
' Tp to data the Forest Service hss
constructed on the forests more than
23e miles of roads. 21.000 miles of trails,
nearly bridges, and 11.000 miles of
telephone line. Every one of these
Improvements beneflta settlers and
ranchers. In addition, there. Is appro
priated annually for the use of the
counties la which the National forests
lie 2S per cent of the gross receipts
from timber sales and other sources, to
be used for road and school purposes.
"Soma of tho Individual forests are
bringing la more than 1100.000 a year,
and the business of ths entire National
forest system Is Increasing so that this
direct contribution to community up
building Is rapidly growing.-' In fact,
already a total of nearly S900.000 is
obtained from the forests every year
for county road and school purposes."

Commissioner Baker. Park Superin

and Roy Kesl made a trip down the
river Saturday to investigate tho pos

public bathing places will ba estab

Two suitable locations were found
near the Crown Mills, front and Petty

is to put in buildings containing suit
able dressing rooms and also put in all
necessary safety precautions. He also
plans to have an instructor at eacn
bathing place whose duty will also bo

To nut In the bathing places, it win
be necessary to drive piles and estab
