With the season advanced more than ji month, and conditions already Incoming dry in the mountain areas, fire look-outs are being placed at some of the stations, according to H. I. Snider, of Truckee, district ranger of the Tahoe national forest who'was a visitor here yesterday. The look-but went on duty yesterday at the Zephyr Cove station at Lake Tahoe, and during the past week, the patrolman started in the Incline area at the north end of lake. Next Tuesday, May 15, the lookout will begin the season's watch at Martis Peak, located on the ridge, 13 miles southeast of Truckee. No arrangements have yet been made for placing a lookout at Me Clellen Peak in the Virginia range on the east side of Washoe valley, but it is hoped to have a man duty there not later than June 1, Snider said. This station commands a view of the easterly slope of the Sierra from Carson t City north to Reno.
