Washington and' Oregon government
forest reserves, under a system, which
will assure favorable reforestation to
perpetuate the lumber industry in the
northwest. E. J. Hanzlik, forest ex
aminer with Seattle federal head
quarters, announced today the com
pletion of plans which will allow an
annual cut of from 40,000.000 to. 80,

Mr. Hanzlik has Just returned to
Seattle headquarters after nearly two
months inspecting timber and eco
nomic conditions within the North
Fork Santiam district, situated on the
Santiam national forest, western Ore
gon. Sales Planned in Advance.
During the last two years Mr. Hanz
lik has been assigned to an important
phase of the forestry, whereby plans
for cutting certain specified units of
mature government timber are pre
pared in advance of making timber
sales. In this system, provisions are
made first for cutting out the more
decadent or over-ripe bodies of tim
ber; second, for a continuous cut from
this area. The amount to be cut an
nually is not less than that which
will sustain an economical logging
and milling operation, and is based
upon the amount of standing mature
timber available to any one central
milling point; also the estimated rate
of growth for the species desired for
restocking the cut-over areas is con
sidered. "Thus far, working plans have been
prepared only for the Sauk Stllagua
mish working circle, on the Snoqual
mie reserve, embracing about 130,
000 acres of commercial forest area,
situated within the upper portions
of the north fork of the Stilaguamish
and the Sauk rivers, about 80 miles
northeast of Seattle." announced Mr.
Yearly Cat T Extlmated
"This working circle will allow a
yearly cut of from 40,000,000 to 50,000,

creased to about 80,000,000 feet within
the next 50 or 60 years. We have
now in process of preparation work

Snoqualmie national forest and the
north fork Santiam watershed, in
In connection with the reforestation
provision in federal forest logging
operations, Mr. Hanzlik reported that
in the western Cascade region the
forest growth may be obtained by
natural means in most cases, after
logging has taken place. Accordingly,
the initial cost of reforestation is
The forest service, however, con
siders it very essential that fires be
kept out of the young growth, which
gets its start after logging operations
have taken place, and it is this phase
of forestry that Mr. Hanzlik said is
of the greatest importance to the fu
ture timber supply of western .Wash

5 MOTOR CARS WRECKED
Autoists Report Law Violations on
High-way to State t'air.
Five cars skidded from the road
way and were wrecked between Port
land and Salem last night, according
to reports of motorists returning
from the state fair. Those who made
the reports did not believe that any
of the accidents resulted in serious
injuries, but they considered this re
markable in view of the large num
ber of cars on the road and numer
ous instances of reckless driving.
"In the early evening there was a
mad rush for home by hundreds of
Portland autoists attending the fair,"
reported one visitor. "Speed laws
were ignored and a large number of
glaring headlights made driving par
ticularly dangerous for drivers south
bound. For the sake of safety the
highway to Salem should be policed
during fair week."
Boy, B, Hit by Autoist.
William Keane. 6 years old, son of
Mr. and Mrs. James Keane of 130
Morris street, was hit by an auto
mobile at Mississippi avenue and Mor

driven by E. L. Swarthout, 985 Al

police that the little boy ran into the
street and that he swerved his car to
avoid striking him, when the lad
came in contact with the rear fender.
The boy was taken to Emanuel hos

is considered serious.

HINDU SUES WHITE MATE
Wife Married Him for His Money,
Says Divorce Petition.'
ASTORIA, Or., Sept. 30. (Special.)
In a suit for divorce on the grounds
of cruelty filed in the circuit court
today by Soba Singh against Pauline
Singh, the complaint recites that the
plaintiff is a Hindu, while the de
fendant is a Belgian woman. The
couple was married at Vancouver on
March 15, 1920, by a justice of the
peace and also by a minister.
The plaintiff avers that he fitted
up a home here for the defendant and
gave her every comfort, but she
c hided him over the fact that he was
not a white man and refused to eat
at the same table with him, saying
it was not proper for a white woman
to eat with a black man. The de
fendant is also alleged to have told
the plaintiff that she married him
only to get his money.

T-HE HALFWAY HOUSE" is one
X of the best little sketches that
the Hippodrome has had among its
offerings in a long time. Mr. and Mrs.
Perkins Fisher, two established char
acter actors whose work is well and
favorably known, portray the two
roles. Mr. Fisher depicts a quaint old
keeper of the Halfway house, with a
fund of honest, homely philosophy,
which keeps the audience constantly
approving. Mrs. Fisher, a capable
charming woman, takes the role of
a stranded actress who stops at the
"Halfway House." The dialogue be
tween the pessimistic actress and op
timistic old inkeeper provides ex
cellent food for thought and enacted
as it is the act is splendid enter
tainment. The two Frederick sisters are dain
ty girls, talented dancers and have
a series of artistic clothes. They
have a partner, Thomas, who is also
a capital stepper and he is busy all
the time stepping or singing away
with the two. cutie girls. They very
properly call their turn "A Paprika
of Songs and Dances."
Two snappy chaps are Paul Moher
and Harry Eleridge in a melange of
song and chatter called "I Don't
Know." They both aim to please
apparently and certainly win much
applause. Their material is refresh

Henry Lewis creates laughter with
his novelty song and chatter act, in
corporating a grotesque surprise he
presents, called "Adrian."
