Tho Region Four Fire Control Manual of the United States Forest Service will form the basis of tho project. Dally humidity records were started on June 11, using 37 per cent relative humidity as the normal avor- 'age. Readings for an eight-day period thereafter indicated a slight ex. cess of moisture over normal years. Further conclusions will be announced from time to time. Two" CCO camps oro assigned to Grand Teton National Park and aro available, at the first reports of forest fires, to carry out the technique of suppression and fire control which are among the duties In which all enrollees are drilled. / Infra-red panoramic photographs, taken for forestry technicians of the National Park Service, also are help- ftil In early detection of forest fires, says the department. These photographs sharpen all outlines, clearly define the horizon, regardless of any ordinary haze present when the picture is taken, and provide a panoramic picture by use of which, checking with a map, the fire lookout man may quickly determine the location of suspicious smoke.

But, still more odd, the drouth itself is responsible for their glee. During one afternoon, Harold Davis, left, and William Smith, of West Liberty, Ohio, picked a wagonload of cabbages that brought them $300 cash at the farm gate. Other northwestern Ohio farmers, amazed at their luck, are getting as high as $600 an acre for cabbages, at prices forced up by the dry spell. Last year thev averaged $20 an acre.
