Tho winners o£ the two uutoniolilltis which wore to be. awarded last spring have agreed to a settlement.

It Is ·« a strictly , dentine basis nnd nothing is done at random. There is n definite system of organization which .designates to ench mnn a certain tool to use and a certain position In tho crew. The crews usually consist of from 0 to 12 men, under supervision of. R warden or a ranger. On a stanll fire, ten acres or less In aren, Tie crew Is usually enough, but on large flros, anywhere from 50 to 300 mm, are employed. The . Implements used are ' axes, brush- hooks, shovels, rikes, water tnnks and torches for setting backfires. The proper use of the lafter Is tho best means of controlling forest fires.
