Trustee Merald Enstad told the group that if other federal departments impose similar restrictions on the businesses they regulate, business sponsorship of all limited-membership clubs could be eliminated.

By The Associated Press Dry, windy weather in northern Minnesota put added pres- sure.on firefighters today, after they controlled two serious forest fires late Monday. This is a "real critical fire day" because of low humidity and increasing southeast winds, State Fire Protection Forester Ray Hitchcock said. There was no hint of weather relief through the weekend. Cold front passages might bring at most .05 lo .1 inch of rain, said the National W«ather Service. An extremely serious fire in the Finland State Forest in the northeast comer of Minnesota was kept under control* during the night But officials were worried the increase in wind might causing that blaze to go out of control again. The fire near Finland consumed about 50 acres, most of it covered by trees already killed •by spruce budworm. U.S. Forest Service crews from the nearby Superior National Forest got to the blaze Erst. They were joined by state firefighters, and during the night a stale crew of about 75 men with bulldozers worked to mop up small fires and improve fift breaks. A helicopter was being used today to drop water on hot 'spots of the fire are*. Three U.S. Forest Service float pltnes and two state helicopters made repeated water drops during the Monday battle to keep the fire to a smalj area. Another potential wildfire had crowned in the treetops of a paper .company's jackpine forest near Nimrod, in north central Minnesota when it was discovered, about 7 p.m. Monday night. State officials said that Mate was held .to five acres 6y a Northwest Paper Co. crew of K -men, using a bulldozer'and helicopter. One of the 10 fires reported Monday covered about 150 acres. That blaze was southeast of Maplewood State Park in Otter Tail County.' A spokesman for the VS. Forest Service said the fire danger today was expected to be even greater than Monday, .as southeast winds pick up to . 10-20 miles per hour and continued low humidity.
