Large Acreage Ruined
Yearly by Forest Fires
A strip of land six miles wide and
long enough to cover 50 miles from
Portland to Salem, represents the
average size of area devastated
each year by forest fires In Oregon,
according to Associate Forester F.
H. Brundage of the U. S. Forest
service, who recently delivered the
first of a series of forest fire radio
alks from Portland over KEX.
The Tillamook Are, which in
1933 destroyed 12 billion feet of
imber and burned over 325,000
acres is the largest single fire of
record, stated the forester. "How
ever, the annual average loss of
200,000 acres is devastating timber
land at an alarming rate."
Brundage showed what this ap
palling loss from fires each year
Jneans to the sportsman, the recre
ationist, and the lover of birds and
wild life. "Thousands of acres of
recreational paradise have been
turned into blackened wastes of
snags and flreweed," said the for
est official, "repelling eastern tour
ists who are willing to pay for en
joyment of this beautiful country.
Brundage stressed the fact that
half the land of Oregon cannot
grow any other crop than timber
and that so long as timber lasts,
roughly half the population will
prosper. "The main roots of our
economic tree," he stated, "are two
in number agriculture and tim
ber. If we burn our timber and our
logged off land so that It cannot
grow a second crop, one of our
economic roots will eventually die
and with It will die the tree
branches which are the trades, pro
fessions and business depending on
"The annual toll from fires will
not be reduced," said Brundage,

ate a public opinion so strong that
it will not be pleasant or healthy'

less with Are in the woods.1

The New Testament
The first books of the New Tes
tament "read In churches" with the
Old Testament selections, were
apostolic letters, notably those of
Paul, and includng generally, tho
not invariably, the longer epistles
of John, Peter and James. When
the Gospels appeared they were
immediately used in like fashon.
and at once assumed a place of pri
ority, not because any one in auth
ority said it must be so but because
they were so important and so In
teresting. For a good while there
was no attempt to make complete
collections. Few churches had all
the New Testament books and
many had other, books, as the Epis
tle of Clement and the Shepherd of
Hemas, which were loved.
When discussion began as to
which books ought to be read reg
ularly, there was immediate agree
ment on the most important ones,
the four Gospels and the larger
epistles. There was a good deal of
doubt about Revelation and Sec
ond Peter and the two short epis
tles of John, which were relatively
unimportant, as was then acknow
ledged and is still evident. But
gradually there came to be agree
ment, not by authority but by the
test of general usage, and the
translation, and later the printing
of the Bible, finally fixed the list
If any one asks whether we know
absolutely that every book In the
Old and New Testaments Is holy
PRAYER . . a boy's life
Almost the whole population of a
little New England village met in
the old white-painted church one
night last week to pray for the life
of a little hoy. Our doctor's seven-
year-old son had been five weeks in
the hospital at the county seat
Word had come that the specialists
had given up hope.
"Can't anything be done?" some
one asked. "The child Is in the
hands of God," was all the doctor
could say. "Then let's try God,"
said Mr. White, the minister.
Ora Dubois, at the telephone ex
change, called up everybody on the
farmers' lines. "Come to the church
tonight, to pray for Billy Persing!"
By word of mouth the call ran
through the village. That night the
church was crowded, and no more
fervent prayers ever rose to the
Throne of Grace than went up
from that little country town.
Next morning good news came
from the hospital. The boy seemed
better. Next day they said he had
a chance. The third day, a decid
ed improvement. Another day
out of danger! .
Do our New England folk still
believe in the power of prayer? We
hear much of the decline of the
ancient faith of our fathers. It is
still a living force, up here in
I know a surprisingly large num
ber of people who tell me that they
have round courage to face the eco
nomic disasters that have befallen
them, and peace of mind such as
they have never known In prosper
ous times, through a renewal of
their faith in Divine Providence.
Not only are the congregations lar
ger in the churches of all sects, but
non-sectarian groups and cults are
drawing greater numbers to hear
the simpler Gospel message.
I saw hundreds turned away for
lack of room, not long ago; at one
of the triweekly religous meetings
In the grand ballroom of one of
New York's largest hotels. I know
one woman who draws hundreds to
hear her "lnsplratonal" talks on
These people are seeking help to
adjust their mnds and spirits to
the realities of life. Many of them
are succeeding, and they are the
only really happy people I know.
Mario Raspuzzi was cutting the
hay on my lower meadow the other
day, when the tongue of the mower
broke off. The oak shaft had rot
ted at the bolt-holes. I called up
the hardware store in Great Bar
rington, eight miles awav. and
found they had a tongue in stock
ror tnat make of machine, already
bored for the bolts.
When ,Maro brought back the
new tongue, however, Instead of be
ing oak or ash, which is better-
It proved to be just a stick of Ore
"That's all they're making 'em of

above all other books, the answer
Is, We do not. No one can say that
Esther, which Is in the Bible, is
nobler than Ecclesiasticus, which
has been dropped out; certainly it
is not so religious or so sweet in Its
spirit No one can say that the
Epistle of Jude is more inspired
than the Epistle of Clement The
mountain range of the Bible shades
off into foot-hills, and we do not
know just where the range begins
or ends. But the range is there,
towering magnificently above all
other literature. Scholars may
discuss its measurements and lim
its; the. theologically minded may
battle over its "Inspiration." Let
them argue. What the world needs
is more folk to read.
We come now to the second ques
tion, How were these chosen books
preserved through the ages and
passed down to us?
Until the invention of printing,
which was desired mainly that the
Bible might be published, copies
were made by hand, and errors in
evitably crept in, no matter how
scrupulous the copyists' care. Hence
in making translations it became
desirable to have as many of them
for comparison as possible. The
earliest manuscript copies that have
survived to our time date from the
fourth century A. D., and the story
of one of them, the Sinaitic, will
illustrate the vicissitudes through
which they have passed.

I've been wondering ever since,
whether most of the goods we buy
these days aren't in the same class
as that new mower-tongue made
to sell cheap and wear out quickly.
YOUTH .... experience
Whenever I hear someone declar
ing that there is one sure way to
set everything right, my first in
quiry is: "How old are you?" The
surer he is that he has discovered
the panacea, the younger he is
likely to turn out to be.
As one gets older, he is not so
sure that the world needs a com
plete remodeling, nor that it would
be the better for being "done over,"
even If that were possible.
I am constantly being reminded
of a remark of Dr. Benjamin Jow
ett, the famous "Master of Balliol,'"
to one of his graduating classes at
Even the youngest of you," he
said, "is not infallible."
POLITICS ; . . . this fall
The Presidential Campaign of
1936 is already under way. The
preliminary skirmishes will be at
the "odd-year" elections this Fall.
On the outcome of such village,
town ana county elections the na
tional elections may possibly hinge
next year. All other things being
equal, the party that has the best
and most far-reaching organization
stands the better chance of victory.
Party organization must begin at
me gass-roots. The- nartv w th
ED CHINN, Prop.
the most men in local public offices
has the strongest organization.
The odds are always with the
"ins." It always takes a pretty
deep and widespread change in pub
lic sentiment to oust whichever
party happens ti control the jobs.
