Rain Needed to Wipe Out Forest
Fire Danger.
ALBANY. Or., Aug. 22. (Special.)
Rain is badly needed to put out the
forest fires In this section of the state
and to put an end to the dangerous
condition prevailing in the forests.
Practically all of the forest fires in

several days will be required to burn
themselves out. High winds are feared.

will end the danger.
