Reese spoke of Mr, Dula being a good woodsman. While at North River he would occasionally walk to Headwaters to visit. At the time no trails had been built.

It was a matter of following cattle paths here and there, but mostly Just taking off through the woods. The total distance was about 15 miles. Mr. Berlin Eye, once in charge of the same district I administer (now with the Virginia Forest Service in Charlottesville) spoke of the time Mr. Dula worked for him.

He said that in 1920-21 they had painted the boundary lines. It was strenuous work, as they used no cars or horses.

Dula since 1932, when he worked for me in the Blue Ridge part of the forest. We were erecting a new steel lookout tower to replace an old wooden structure. As I was Just then beginning my work in Eastern National Forests, it vas a pleasure to talk to him about his experiences. He had a fine memory and a knack of story-telling which combined instruction with entertainment. At the funeral last Tuesday I saw many of his old associates.

After the services were over I talked with some of them, especially Mr. O. Reese McCray, long-time fire warden and forest worker of Reese remembered when Mr. Dula came to this part of the country, abuot 1914, shortly fter the government had taken over the mountain lands around North River. At the time there were no telephones around convenient places, such as there are today.
