IO-A CORPUS CHRiSTI TIMES, Mon., Aug. 16, 1971 Forest Service Rapped By JAMES BOWERS GOOSE PRAIRIE, Wash. (B -- Far from the pressures of his seat on the nation's highest court, U.S. Supreme Court Justice William 0. Douglas retreated this summer, as he has for the past 67 years, to a clearing in the high forest country of the Washington Cascades. The 7 2 - y e a r - o l d Douglas claims to be "on the side of the fish now and against people." Sitting" in the living room of his "Prairie House" cabin in the clearing with his wife, Cathy, Douglas is reluctant to discuss political issues or personalities. But when the talk turns to conservation of woodlands and environmental issues, he becomes an out- doorsman caught in the passions of a lifetime spent com- batting despoliation of the wilderness. A long time foe of certain logging practices, Douglas had particular criticism for the U.S. Forest Service, whidr, under the Department of Agriculture, is responsible for the National Forests. "They are a fine group of men. Honest and highly professional," Douglas said, but there are three things wrong with Forest Service policies. First, he said, nobody can be a supervisor unless he is a f o r e s t r y school graduate. "There is no reason an ecologist can't be chief forester." The way it works now, "all you get are men trained to run woodlots," he said. Lumber companies often take Forest Service men into their executive levels, he said. "This is a corrupting influence, not in terms of venality," but they "just are not the best watchdogs" of the public interest, he added. The third weakness in present policy "is the use of National Forest lands to subsidize lumber companies," he FIVE-YEAR-OLD Parents ·oy EDINA, Minn. W -- Edina police hoped to turn up some clues today concerning the whereabouts of the parents of a five-year-old boy who apparently was abandoned Friday night in Brails City, Neb. The youngster knocked on the door of a Falls City residence and told Mrs. Sara McGin.nis he had been let out of a car by his parents. Falls City P o l i c e Chief Elaine Sailors said the boy identified himself as Brace Edward Bell but didn't know the name of his hometown. The boy said he was let out of a red and white car with Minnesota license plates. Sailors said the youngster told Mrs. McGinnis his "Mommy and Daddy" let him out of the car south of Falls City. The boy said his parents' names were Jim and Sharon, and they were between 45 and 50 years of age. An Edina school teacher heard a news report about the abandoned boy on a local radio station Saturday. She thought she recognized the family, and calledthe Edina police. Police determined that a Mr. and Mrs. James Bell, with son Bruce, had lived in the Minneapolis s u b u r b until about June. Police said yesterday they had been unable to contact any relatives or Bell's former employer, but said they hoped to learn the family's forwarding address or car license plates number when state offices opened today. The boy was staying with the Sailors' family while attempts continued to locate his parents. said. "In terms of social costs, this subsidy is very great." The costs are often measured in terms of erosion, runoff and ruined streams, he said. He first came to Yakima in 1904 with his widowed mother. Douglas and his friends used to prepare their packboards and then hitch a ride for 10 cents on the caboose of a train -- there were no passenger cars -- heading up the Naches. After hopping off the train, they would start h i k i n g through the forest, Douglas recalled, reaching what is now Goose Prairie by the second night. By the third night they would have reached Fish Lake. ' In 1960 Douglas started acquiring what was originally a 160-acre homestead site and by 1968 his home was complete. Almost every m o r n i n g Douglas and his wife ride their horses along the forested American Ridge to the north or in the opposite direction, towards Baldy Peak, where patches of snow still linger. Concern with the fragile nature of woodlands has led Douglas to the belief that public use of campgrounds and recreation sites will have to be restricted in some manner. Douglas suggested that a- permit system should be instituted to preserve nature. This is similar to what is done in campgrounds near Washington, D.C., where reservations for a specific length of time must be made in advance of an outing. As the author of a proposed "" *"" " Rights, 'Douglas believes that evejy persons "has the right to access to nature, to unpolluted streams and to wildlife," but this right of access cannot be allowed to destroy nature. Instead of opening up undeveloped or wilderness areas with roads and highways, the fringes of these areas could be developed for mass recreation, said Douglas, thus providing contact with the outdoors for those who travel by vehicle, while leaving the interior unspoiled.
