Dildy of Nashville) informed me by long-distance telephone lha tmy mother was entirely justified in protecting her home against forcible intrusion and the sympathies of the entire county were with her. "The sheriff stated that the posting of a recognizance (bond) in such a matter was an entirely legal routine which, under the circumstances, should conclude the incident. "The sheriff also slated that Page (J. R. Page), on his hospital bod, admitted he was at fault and had no desire lo prosecute. "I also talked to my brother, who is now en route back, and he related to me the same state of facts given me by the sheriff. "He also slated that the party shot was a distant relative of our family and previous family difficulties entered into the situation. "While I regret the necessity for her having had to do so, I am glad my mother had the courage to protect her home from such an unwarranted intrusion."

Urges Caution in Building Campfire Best Way to Fight Forest Fires Is to Prevent Them * By RUSSELL, STADELMAN District Forester, Magnolia Cosiderable time has been involved in research delving into the best method of forest fire suppression. The outcome of this research makes us aware that the most practical way of fighting forest fires is to do it before the fire is started. That is, through a fire prevention program. Forestry is a new thing in the South. Since the virgin pine has been practically cut out, the value of second- growth timber has been impressed on the woodland owner. By placink this land under co-operative agreement with the Arkansas State Forestry Commission the individual is assured that this land will receive this protection. A small warming fire left by hunters to burn uncontrolled will soon destroy the ground cover and young of animals over a considerable area. This can be prevented by exercising caution with the use of fire when hunting in the woods. How often it is heard said, "Hunting isn't as good here as it used to be." Many times this has resulted from the destruction of the habitat in which the game thrives. Game needs and requires a certain fixed habitat. Under the Cole-Crutchfielcl Forest Fire Law the following acts are labeled as misdemeanors—(1>, "Setting on fire or causing or procuring to be set on fire any forest, brush or other in- flamable vegetation on lands not his own; (2), Allowing fire to escape from the control of the person building or having charge of the fire, or to spread to the lands of any person other than the builder of the fire."
