Ex-Senator Chamberlain

Washington, Feb.
8.— (W A SH ­
NAL) Former Senator George E.
Chamberlain is ill at his apartment
Friday he was not feeling
well and on Saturday was ordered
to bed, suffering an attack which
caused some concern among his
Today his physician reports im­
Mr. Chamberlain is
cheerful and is permitted to attend
to some matters o f business, but is
forbidden to leave his bed.
The seriousness o f his condition
has not been disclosed,
Senator Chamberlain had planned
to leave Washington on Wednesday
next for a visit with his son, Dr.
Charles T. Chamberlain and other
members of the family here, so Dr,
Chamberlain relates, but postponed
the visit for a short time several
days ago.
Telegraphic assurances from his
physician at Washington, received
by Dr. Chamberlain this morning,
states that the attack suffered by
the senator was slight and that, bar-
would be able to make the journey
to Oregon within a month.
No man, it is safe to say, who
occupied public office in Oregon,
took with him upon his retirement
to private life the universal sym­
pathy and regret accorded Senator
Chamberlain upon the occasion of
his defeat in the election o f 1920.
Nor is it unsafe to say that had a
general expectation o f his defeat
existed at the day o f that election,
many o f those who voted against
him under the stress and drive for
party regularity would have contin­
ued the support they had given him
during many proceeding years.—

That the prevention o f forest fire
in young timber is o f the utmost
importance to the future prosperity
o f the state o f Oregon, was the cen­
tral thought of the co-operative lec­
ture given at the Estacada hotel last
Friday night. W. V. Fuller, direc­
tor o f publicity fo r the state forestry
department and George E. Griffith,
public relations specialist o f the U.
S. Forest Service, gave the lecture,
which was beautifully illustrated
by a set o f interesting lantern slides.
‘‘The forests are a big help in pay­
ing taxes,” declared Mr. Fuller.
“ They also contribute 65 per cent
of the industrial payroll o f the
state. Every loafing acre that will
grow trees should be at work grow­
ing tree crops, so that Oregon will
continue to have payrolls as well as
taxable wealth.”
Mr. Griffith discussed the impor­
tance o f the forests from a state­
wide as well a$ a national stand­
He showed their contribu­
tions o f wood, water, grazing and
He closed with an
earnest plea for fire prevention.
“ I f we didn’t have to fight fires,”
said Mr. Griffith, ‘ we would have
more time and money to bu.ld
roads and trails and do other use­
ful things.
Most forest fires are
caused by human thoughtiessneiss.
We must have an arroused and ag­
gressive public which will not tol­
erate the hand o f a man who
starts a forest fire.”
He then ex­
plained how fires are started, and
how the public can co-operate in
preventing them.

den fo r Clackamas and Marion

John W. Ferguson, supervising
fire warden for Clackamas and Mar­
ion counties brought to Estacada on
Thursday morning W. V. Fuller,
director of publicity for the state
Forestry Department, and Geo. E.
Griffith, public relations specialist of
the U. S. Forest Service.
Mr. Ferguson is taking over the
county his associates in an educa­
tional tour lecturing on all matters
relative to fire prevention and con­
servation of forests. Notwithstand­
ing the inclement weather, a lecture
was given T riday evening in the
large dining room of the Estacada
notel, and was well attended.
Mr. Fuller spent some time in
opening this lecture on the impor-
tacne o f this educational tour, he
stated as soon as people could be
made to understand the importance
of extra care regarding fires, that
thousands o f dollars of property
could be saved to the state and taxes
be reduced in the elimination of
nearly all of the expense that the
state and nation are now compelled
¿o pay on account o f forest and
other careless fires.

condition o f localities before and
after fires had passed the locality,
and many of scenic beauty and wild

This lecture was decidedly edu­
cational and interesting and extra­
ordinary food for thought.
Referring again to Mr. Ferguson,
Jack has an argument for the vio­
lator of the fire ordinance that is
seldom misunderstood. He has been
at the business for some time anil

ing with him knovy equally as well
