With autumn at hand and win
ter just around the corner, the
public in the Bonneville Dam area
is threatened with a iuel famine
The Chronicle has no desire to
tlarm residents of the district, but
the fuel situation is going to be
come acute liefore Christmas un-
ess householders lay in a supply
of wood ti> take care of their needs.
In past years there has been suf
ficient wirtd to go around and no
one has suffered, but the rapid
increase in population, coupled
with the short hours which the
mills are operating, has created a
problem which residents of the
district must solve, each for him
self ami in his own manner.
There is an abundance of wood
in the forests, but it has to lie cut
and delivered. If not laid in be
fore the rains start it will not be
sufficiently dry to burn.
The mill at Bridal Veil has no
mill ends for sale and the cost of
hauling from Portland is greater
than most people will care to pay.

In past years Cascade Locks has
depended upon the forest service
to fight its fires. The Herman
creek ranger station has responded
time and again, ami in case of dire
emergency, the Eagle creek ranget
station has come to the town’s as
The public has come to accept
this assistance from the fire fight
ing rangers as a matter of course
It has accepted this assistance, a*
in the instance of the fire of July
2. and again a weel^ ago when a
grass fire threatened the commun
ity. This attitude on the part of
the town is unfair, ^oth to the
people of Cascade Ldr ks and to
the forest service, for two reasons:
1. The forest rangers like to feel
that their efforts are appreciated
2. The town is neglecting to in
stall its own pumper, and will neg
lect to act just so long as the gov
ernment furnishes it with a free
The rangers have given splendid
service and are entitled to a vote
of thanks from the public. Night
and day they have stood ready to
respond to an alarm. Without their
help in the July fire the entire
town might have been swept by
Cascade Locks is under obliga
tion to the forest service, and it
should endeavor to discharge that
obligation by telling the forest
ser\ice at home and in the district
office in Portland that the help
and courtesy extender! by the rang
ers has meant a great deal to the
For the town to continue to de
pend on the fire fighters is wrong
and in the end will lead to dis
aster, for the time must come
when the rangers will tire of fur
nishing fire protection, or they
