WHY THE FOREST SERVICE
Of Practical Value To Fanners, Lumber
men and Owners of Forest Lands
Tho forest lands of tho United
Sattes are owned In ttareo separate
ways: First, by tho Government of
the United Statos, to which belongs
tho National Forosts; second, by
some of tho States; and third, by
private ownors Individuals, com
panies, or Institutions. Tho prlvato
forest lands exceed In area those of
the States and tho Federal Govern
ment combined, and their preserva
tion In a condition to produce tim
ber and to conserve tho wator supply
Is of vast Importance to tho nation.
Tho treatment which they, usually
rpcelvo tends to destroy their value
rather than to sustain or Increase It.
Tho reason Is evident. Like other
private property, these lands aro
held for the returns they yield; and
tho owners havo only begun to un
derstand that It pays better, as a
rule, to protect a forest, Irf harvest
ing the timber crop, tlinn to destroy
It. The Forest Service, therefore,
offer3 practical assistance to prlvato
owners In devising definite plans for
the proper care aifd management of
their forest lands, In order that tho
lands may be kept permanently and
Tho lands are mainly of two khulB
small holdings, for tho most part
farmers' woodlots, and large timber

Throughout H very largo poition
of the United States nearly every
farm has a certain part of its area
under wood, either planted, as In
regions otlicrwiso treeless, or of
natuial growth. The valuo of this
wooded portion, besides affording
protection from the wind, iq chioily
for fuel, fencing, and railroad ties,
with Eomo building material and the
wood needed fpr special uses about
the farm. Without tho woodiot the
farm very often would bo an un
piofltable investment, because tho
farmer could not affoid to buy tho
wood which now costs him very lit
tle except tho labor of cutting and
moving it. But in tho majority of
cases this part of the farm is far
less useful than It might easily bo
made. This is true because the
farmer does not study its productive
capacity as ho does that of his fields
and pastures, and henco does not
make it yield as fully as ho might, ' niade.

(b) If, as a result of the prelim

to have a working plan made, he
pays the total expenses of making

however, the preparation of tho plan

Is commonly accompanied by tho de
struction of tho trees now too small
to be profitably cut. Tho small
trees, If left unharmed, would form
the basis of a future crop, often of
more valuo than tho first. It also
frequently happens that the first cut

more valuable species only, so that
the future growth Is not nearly so
valuable as It would be If tho species
of less value were taken and If se

left to provide seed for a future

Fire so frequently follows tho
lumberman, in spite of his precau
tions, that In many places it is
thought to be Inovltablo. Only too
often, also, flro burns over tho for
ests beforo they aro cut, killing
trees and reducing tho valuo of the
timber when cut. In every region
of tho United States adequate pro
tection against fires is urgontly
needed. Often a woll-planned and

tion is all that Is required to enablo

"W. O. (Dad) Trine, physical direct
or at tho State Agricultural College
and ono of the best known athletes
and athletic trainers In tho west, died
here at 8 o'clock tonight, after suf
fering for moro than two years with
cancer on the face. His chin was
affected, and moro than a year ago
his lower jaw was removed. For
two months the sufferer had been
confined to his room, whero ho lin
gered between life and death.
A committee of tho faculty of the
Agricultural College will accompany
the body to Eugene tomorrow, whoro
Interment will bo made.
Trine ran all the distance races
and the sprints. For tho 100-yard
dash he hold a record of 9 4-5, aiid
4:27 in the mile. He was about 3S
Tilno was made physical director
of tho O. A. C. four years ago.
WcII-knonn Coast Athlete.
W. O. Tilne, b6tter known in ath
letic circles as "Dad," was ono of
tho best-known trainers of amateur
athletes on tho Pacific Coast. Ho
first gained fame as a professional
foot racer in the early clays of the
sport on tho coast, and has per
formed on tho track In almost every
city of any promlnonco in sporting
circles on the coast.
In tho days whon Jack 'King, of
Portland, and Dad Moulton, the vet
eran coach of the University of Cali
fornia, wore tho spiked shoes and
running trunks W. O. Trine who at
his best, and frequently demonstrated
his speed when they wore either par
ticipants or officials of the meet.
Trino's greatest performance on the
track is said to havo been his defeat
of Pendergast, who at that time wa3
rated as tho champion of the country.
When footracing commenced to
declino in tho early '90s, Trine took
up coaching of amateurs, and was
associated with Moulton in Califor
nia for several years. About eight
years ago he came north and was
soon engaged as trainer for tho ath
letes at the University of Oregon.
Ho developed a team that became fa
mous, and ever since his taking up
tho work of training, this Institution
has been represented In all branches
of outdoor athletics by champion
ship or winning teams. Four years
ago Trine was made physical direc
tor at tho Oregon Agricultural Col
lego at Corvallis, which position ho
held when ho died. Ho Is tho man
who developed Forrest Sralthson,
Earl Greenhaw, Swann, Moores and
other famous athletes who have won
honor and glory for Oregon colleges.
During the games held under tho
auspices of the American Athletic
Union at tho Lewis and Clark Fair In
August, 1905, Dnd Tiino was present
with tho finest collective bunch of
athletes that he could muster at that
time of year, but owing to Injuries
suffered by Smlthson and two others,
and tho failure of Greenhaw to en
tor, tho Chicago Athletic Club cap
tured tho meet.
Shortly after these games Trlno
was attacked by a cancerous growth
on his lower jaw and was sont to St.
Vincent's HospltaJ In Portland to un
dergo an operation. His chin was
entirely removed and at that tlmo
