With the opening of the sum
mer sesaon, and the probability
of periods of forest fire danger,
the U. S. forest service announces
the opening of the 1948 national
campaign for forest fire preven
tion in the Pacific northwest.
"Because of the late, wet
spring," says Kermit Lindstedt,
fire control chief, Portland, Ore.,
"there might be a feeling of op
timism which weather develop
ments may not Justify. The wet
spring has made a lush growth
of grass and weeds. If the hu
midity drops, and the weather
turns hot and dry, this growth
would encourage the rapid
spread of fire."
"Let's be truly patriotic," said
Linstedt. "and prevent fires which
destroy not only scenic beauty,
out also one of our great basic
national resources. That is a duty
of every American citizen."
The only safe course, say the
foresters, is to take no chances
with fire. Campfire permits are
required in national forests. start-

are asked to stop and smoke in

traveling on a forest road or trail,
or while walking through the
woods. Campfires should be
built where there is no danger
of spreading, and put dead out
with plenty of water.
The national forest fire pre
vention campaign works In close
cooperation with the local Keep
