AIRMEN SPOT FOREST FIRES IN CALIFORNIA Sacramento, Feb. 22. Abruptly; as the firefly flashes, there is a crackle of flames.

This Is followed by a puff of smoke.1 In an hour the century-long labor of nature and man is undone. In the'path of the Are towns and forests go down, and lives are lost. Scattered through the vast forests in various sections of the United States are the numerous watch towers of the forest fire patrol system, where men are on duty night and day to detect the forest fire's insidious start. Why, it may be asked, with the wonderfully complete system of watch tower forest fire observation Uncle Sam has been years in establishing, do we still have so many disastrous fires? The answer can be summed up in two words restricted view. the forest ranger lookout stations are located at the highest and most favorable spots possible, at the same time it is impossible to build them high enough or place them where the view in one direction or another is not more or less restricted; consequently often it la out of the question for the most careful, vigilant and highly trained observers to locate a fire until it has gained proportions to allow smoke to rise above the tops of ridges or the brinks of canyons.

Even when so discovered only the approximate location can sometimes He given by the observer and a rough guess hazarded concerning the fire's size and probable course. Wherefore Uncle Sam this summer has been trying out a new method of spotting forest flres. and so successful has it already proved that great things in the way of forest fire prevention in the future are promised. The new plan is the use of airplanes and captive balloons. New as it Is.

already the airplane forest Are patrols now cover dally a large part of I ho national forests of California, extending from San Frarri'co to the Mexican border. The rroblem presented to the air service was how could St render the greatest aid in guarding against forest fires in rcme thousands of square miles of rational forest whSh cover extremely ragged and inaccessible mountains and become in of summer dought. The discovery of fires in such a country has ben proved to If the real governing factor. THi: ADVATA(iU In contract to the limited field cf vision of the lookout on a mountain top. the airplane observer can look down upon the mountains and canyons as upon a map spread out beneath him.

Even a wisp of smoke immediately it arises "becomes wei! defined against the greens and browns of the forest growth. The nature of the surrounding ground and the drift cf th Fir.oke, however 5-iiht. alo furnish tl. observer in te sky indications of the wind direction and velocity. These once determined, the wireless at the pilot's t-lbow flashes the warning to the Forestry Bureau of Protection.

Clouds and rain'" the dread of the are the bst natfral enemies cf forest fires. The hot. dry weather, which allows the full effect of the sun's rays to be felt and in which the flres thrive, offers an atmosphere which is so clear that insignificant objects many miles distant stand well dc-fined as under a microscope. Thus the Kirplar.e patrol has a further advantage. The observation balloon at Ross Field.

furnishes a fixed lookout station by operating continuously at an altitude of 2.000 to feet, covering the southern slope of the Angeles National forest for a. distance cf some 40 miles. In addition, a Are truck, carrying equipment suitable for combating brush flres. is maintained in readiness at all times and in direct telephonic communication with the balloon. This equipment has already proved its value, not only in the purpose for which it was originally intended, but also by being the first arrival at the scene of fires in neighborhood ranches.

OPKRATE OXK ROITE. Airplanes from March Field operate one route, starting northward of Ross Field and covering the valleys which lie hidden behind the abrupt southern barrier of this range. From this point the patrol runs easterly over the Cajon Pass. Little Bear lake, and the scenic automobile drives on the crest of the San Bernardino mountain range to Big Bear lake, situated at an altitude of 7,000 feet. Before returning the route passes southerly over the eastern end of this range to a point where a part of the Imperial valley becomes visible.

Although radio messages from the patrol planes to the receiving station at March Field effect the promptest report, in case the radio should fail to work this service has been supplemented by dropping a message attached to a parachute ovar the nearest town. In order to insure the operation of this method the people of all the surrounding towns ara notified by their respective Chambers of Commerce, through the medium of the local newspapers, of the precise nature of the work undertaken by the aerial patrols and the proper procedure to be taken by any one finding a parachute message.
