Out of a fleecy cloud bank the huge
army place points its nose earthward
and wings its rapid way over th
valued pines and firs of Oregon's for
sts. Krom his great height the pilot
catches a glimpse of a thin spiral o
smoke moving toward the heavens.
In an instant he studies bis map
which lies spread before him in th
cockpit of his machine. Rapidly and
accurately he figures his location, and
in another moment he has penned tni
location upon a small piece of paper.
Then, reaching into a wicker basket
he draws forth a carrier pigeon. The
mte is fastened to the pigeon's leg
and the little winged messenger i
then released and started on its a:
Journey back to the home field.
Thus is another incipient forest fire

Plan la Sarreaaftil.
This Is the work which has been
going on during the late summer and
fall months by the army planes which
have been patrolling the forests
this state. Although they got a late
start in their patrol work, they ac
i-omplished a great deal of good and
laid the foundation for an even more
successful patrol work next year.
W. B. Osborne, forest examiner at
tached to the national forest office in
Portland, has Just returned from Eu
gene, where he devoted an entire
month to an investigation of the
utility of the airplane patrol of for
ests, and he has returned to the home
e-ffiee convinced beyond any possible
doubt that this method of guarding
against destructive fires is the most
feasible which could be adopted.
Day after day Mr. Osborne was a
Jiassenger in the big planes as they
ratrolied the wooded sections frotn
Mount Hood to Crater lake. lie
worked daily with the army pilots In
mapping out their locations and get
ting a general knowledge of the for
ests which they were guarding. His
personal observations have converted
h;m into a strong advocate ef the air
plane patrol system and he believes
that next summer the fire hazards In
the forests of this state will be placed
, at a minimum.
More Plane Wanted.
The, forest officials liope that by
next summer more planes will be
available for this work. This fall but
two planes were in daily use. Forest
officials hope that this number wil:
be doubled during the summer months
of next year. Likewise, better maps
will be in readiness for next year and
the pilots will have had a better
knowledge of the country. When the
fteet of patrol planes arrived for this
work late this summer, the skies al
ready were naxy from the numerous
f rest conflagrations, and it was no
easy matter for the pilots to gain a
good understanding of forest condi
Fores: officials likewise beliee that
the wireless telephone will be in
readiness for installation on all patro'
planes by next summer. Forest offi
cials who are now concluding their
wirelesr telephony experiments i-ssert
they will be ready to install appara
tus with a carrying distance of 1?
miles so that It will be ready for
every plane used in forest patroi
If the wireless telephone Is found
entirely practicable, it will eliminate
the necessity of using carrier pigeons
in carrying fire messages, but the
army pilots now stationed at Kugene
are training these birds daily and
will have them ia readiness for any
"From my investigations I am firm
ly convinced that the airplane patrol
ft our forests is the only method by
which big conflagrations might be
discovered in time to prevent a dis
astrous destruction to our forests."
said Mr. Osborn.3. "Despite the many
handicaps which confronted the pilots
this fall, they proved their utility in
many ways and there is no dcubt in
my mind that next year these planes
will be the means of saving many
thousands of dollars of timber."

R. Lee Steiuer, warden of the Oregon
slate penitentiary, left here today for
a trip as far east as New York on a
visit to several of the best-managed
and largest prisons in the United
States. Among the penitentiaries to
be inspected by Dr. Steiner are those
at Walla Walla. Wash.; Deer Lodge,
Mont.; Stillwater, Minn.; Joliet, 111.;
Columbus, Ohio; Jackson, Mich., and
Sing Sing, New York.
The purpose of the tour is to inves
tigate industries which may prove
suitable for installation in the Salem
prison. The flax industry in Oregon,
as far as the local prison is concerned.
Is nearing an end. The warden is de
sirous that some industry be estab
lished to keep the convicts at work.

for I have gotten a divorce from you

tn these words, written to Mrs.
Louisa F. Crawford at St. Paul, Minn.,
John Jesse Crawford broke the news
of a divorce he had obtained in Port
land long before, contends Mrs. craw,
fnr.-l in a motion filed in the circuil
court yesterday to set aside the de
fault order and permit the filing of an
answer and cross-complaint.
To the best of her knowledge, until
that letter -was received, Mrs. Craw
ford was not only on excellent terms
with her husband, but was expecting
to have him join her shortly. Instead
of having such intentions, he divorced
her and married a woman with wnom

of the Kenton bank.
First Wife Charges Fraud.
Mrs. Crawford charges fraud in the
divorce proceedings and contests the
legality of her husband's second mar
riage. Copies of summons and other
divorce papers were mailed to her at
St Paul in care of "General ueliv
ery." while she asserts that her hus
band was well aware of four differ
ent addresses in St. Paul and Minne
apolis where they would have been
certain to reach her.
The Crawfords were married in
1905. In 1915 inflammatory rheuma
tism caused the wife to desire to leave
Portland for another climate. She
asserts that her husband had agreed
thoroughly with the plan and wrote
her many affectionate letters up to
Airgust, 1918, promising to join her
as soon as he could dispose of inter
ests here.
She asks in the cross-complaint that
the decree be granted her and alimony
of $50 a month paid.
The "violent, jealous, pouting, peev
ish temper and disposition" of Hattie
C. Jordan has caused her husband, N,
E. Jordan, much embarrassment and
has "made it decidedly impractical"
for them to go out together at all
