Winooski Ave. Tel. 2315 J. E. WAGNER, MILTON WALTER D. LEONARD, VERGENNES Forest Fire Prevention War Measure Special to the Free Press RUTLAND, Sept. 6 Last spring will long be remembered in the northeast for its devasting forest fires. There were 14,130 of them in the 14 northeastern states and they burned over 749,295 acres. The annual forest fire toll over the nation is approximately $35, 000,000 in property loss alone. About 170,000 fires occur and they sweep over about thirty million acres of woodland. Sometimes lives are lost. The forests are needed this year as they were never needed before. iWood is going into airplanes, cantonments, shipping cases, gun-' stocks, piling for bridgeheads iwhen the marines make a beach-Ihead and a thousand war uses. Wood cellulose is going into gun-cotton. Fuel wood is replacing coal and oil. Oak is going into ships. Turpentine and rosin from southern trees help keep the navy going. Wood poles are holding communication lines and wood ties support extra loads on our railroads. New wood synthetics are coming rapidly into the war picture. Wood waste in war is tantamount to sabotage. To Combat Loss To combat this loss. Secretary of Agriculture Claude R. Wickard has announced a nation-wide forest fire prevention campaign to be conducted by the U. S. Forest Serv ice in conjunction with state forest services, patriotic groups and other public and private coopera-!tors. "In war time," said Secretary Wickard, "the control and preven tion of forest fires is a first line defense job on the home front, In the 14 northeastern states this campaign gets under way on La bor day, Sept. 7. This announce ment was made here by Forest Supervisor Otto G. Koenig of Green Mountain National forest. Theme of Campaign The theme of the national wartime forest fire prevention cam paign is "Careless Matches Aid the Axis Prevent Forest Fires." The symbol of the campaign de vised by the advertising council incorporated, as a patriotic con tribution, is the leering head of a Japanese soldier, holding a Regulation U. S.

Public utility companies are describing the campaign and its purposes in 'house organ literature that goes to their customers and patrons. In some communities merchants and patriotic groups are sponsoring full-page advertisements in local newspapers carrying the fire pre vention message. The Danger Period The forest fire prevention cam paign gets under way just ahead of the fall fire season in the north east that period between the fall ing of the leaves and the coming of snow, when the forests are very dry. It will be continued through the next fire season which begins in the late winter after the snow rnelts and lasts until the forests are green again.

Has Received $6,21U86, War Contracts BOSTON, " Sept. 6 New England has received v $6,211,186,000 worth of war supply and facilities projects contracts, it was announced today by the statistical department of the New England Council, regional development organization. This is 8 per cent of the national total of some $77 billions awarded by the army, navy, maritime commission, treasury department, and the British Empire up to July 1 of this year. New England's part in the war effort is more accurately gauged by its share of war production contracts alone, which are 9.5 per cent by value of the national total. This is slightly more than New England's portion of national manufacturing in the pre-war year of 1939 when it accounted for 8.6 per cent by value of the country's out put. Half of the region's war production activity, according to dollar values, is divided between two major industries. The aircraft indus try, largely in Connecticut, has received 28 per cent of the contracts awarded in New England. The shipbuilding industry accounts for 22 per cent of the total. The balance of New England's share is spread over the hundreds of other items necessary to the war effort and is shared in by the industries of all six states. 223 Launchings And Keel Layings Of Ships Today NEW YORK, Sept. 6 t?V-At least 223 launchings and keel layings of vessels ranging from 10,500 - ton liberty ships to small, speedy tor pedo craft and from last, sieeK destroyers to slow army tugboats will set a world s record for maritime construction in ceremo nies observing Labor day.
