That snow roraa'ns on the land
much lonKcr under forest trees than
in open places of the samo altitude
end similar conditions, Is clearly
shown In a report Just received by
DlBtrlct Forester George H. Cecil,
During the Bprlng of 191G, the
depth of snow wbb measured regul
arly at twenty different stations In
tho open and In tho forest near tho
Wind Itlver Experiment Station on
tho Columbia National Forest, to de
termine tho value of forests In pro
longing the wlnter'B Bnow Bupply.
Tho stations were In pairs, each one
In tho forest having Its counterpart
In the open where all conditions
were similar except that there was
no standing green timber.'
, In every pair of BtaUons without
exception tho snow lasted longer at
tho station under the trees than at
the one In the open. On the flat,
the snow left the plowed ground two
weeks before It left the woods: the
burned nnd logged off lands four
weeks earlier; nnd the unburncd
BluBliIns two to three weeks earlier
than tho corresponding forest sta
tions. On tho mountain sides the
snow dhnppeared from old burns on
eotitli slopes seven to eight weeks
sooner than from plmllnr foreated
nlopes, and from the open ridge six
weeks before It left the wooded
As each station In tho open be
came entirely bare during the study
,thoro wob Btlll on the ground at each
station in tne forest an nverago for
tho cntlro study of over 2S Inches
of snow, equal to more than 13 in
ches of water, b was ascertained by
careful measurement. The report
states that In n eenuon of loss or
greater snowfall than last winter, this
dlffcrcuco would be correspondingly
lesfl or greater.
According to tho report, these
figures show that all forests In this
region, especially the N'nttonal For
est nrcas In the high mountains, nro
very vnluablo for conserving tho
spring water supply, and should bo
carefully protected. Denuded forest
areas should be restocked with trees

United Statos over 40 years o ago

gazed fearlessly on the whole world
Is dimmed and It is not long before
the final break up occurs. All of this
was entirely preventable.
Other things being equal It Is tho

neither over-works nor ovor-plays,
neither over-cats, over-drinks, nor

standard of simple healthy diet In
moderation, who offsetA mental work
with physical recreation, who la sb

Health state: "Ji Is tho duty or of

this end they shall be allowed tlmo

their ofllclal duties will permit." If
the Government regards It as esscn

equally Important to every citizen
that ho similarly maintain a high
