COUNTY_ FOREST FIRE FiGHTING EXPENSIVE $6,000 Expended Last Year in Fayette; Total For District $10,412 Loss Would Be Less If Public Was Conscious Of Land Value. MORE CONTACT HELD NEEDED K. O.'d by Cupid C. H. S. NEWS OF THE DAY Freshman Tarty Toniffht. The freshman class will party this evening in the gymnasium. Over 100 have purchased tickets for the affair. Freshman Homeroom 31 is the general committee for the party. Games Played in Room 25. Genovieve Columbus, P a u l i n e Younkm and Dean Kalp were win- Cost of extinction of forest and field fires in Fayette county during 1938 amounted to $6,000, it was revealed in. the annual report of V. M. Bearer of Ligonier, forester of the Forbes District of the Pennsylvania Department o£ Forests and Waters. The amount expended for the entire, district that embraces Somerset, Westmoreland, Greene, Washington and Fayette counties was $10,416, exclusive of damage caused to property and daims. There were 304 forest and field fires during the 12-month period in _ the district of which HG were in the spring and 158 in the autumn. The average fire, Bearer's report showed, burned over 18 acres of land, there having been a total of. 4,447 acres o£ forestland swept by fires last year. Total cost of the extinction was placed at $10,416 which represents a cost of approximately S2.34 per acre. Although the cost per acre was about average, the forester said it was increased considerably because of a number of small fires back in the mountains. In several instances, firefighters were forced to walk several miles before reaching the scene and then were handicapped because of the lack of water.' The fact that more fires occurred during the fall season, which ordinarily is shorter than the spring season, is unusual, the forester said. The reason for the larger number of fires in the fall was the exceptionally dry season, he pointed out. Bearer said that a number of mountain springs went dry last fall and for several weeks forests were drier than they had been for several years. The forester explained 56,000 of the total expended for extinction was spent fighting fires in Fayette county where majority of the outbreaks were . reported during 1938. He said that Somerset county, which has the greatest number of acres of forest lands in the district, had 'the least fires. Bearer declared that the establishment of public camps and resorts in that county has made persons conscious ot the value of forestlands and therefore they exerted more precaution in preventing fires. In Fayette. county there is very little contact between the populace and forestry officials, he said. The forester emphasized {he fact that il several State parks were established in Fayette county the number of forest fires would be reduced considerably. Bearer's report brought out that the acreage burned over during the fall was 1,426 as compared to 4,447 for the entire year which shows that although there were less fires in the spring they burned over larger areas The progress made in foiest fire fighting as indicated by comparing the average acreage burned over in the district with the figures for the entire year of 3913, the first in which Statewide records were kept. In 1913, the fire throughout the Stale burned over an acreage of 413.acres. The highest cost o£ forest fire extinction in the Forbes Forest District is the $55,314 listed for the dry year of J930, the forester said. The next highest is for 1034 when the total cost was ?21,000. Bearer said that for the purpose ot records, the fall hazard season is regarded as commencing July 1, the date for the start of the State's new fiscal period. Lynn Bar!

Roosevelt "I think he'd,make a much tetter president "than Franklin Roosevelt," Fish said during a debate here Wednesday night with the white- haired Thomas, frequent presidential nominee on the Socialist ticket. "He's not an interventionalist.", The New York congressman, member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, included among eight proposals to "insure recovery, employment and peace," a plea to "keep out of all foreign entanglements and war commitments, and stop spreading war hysteria." "The only thing the Republicans agree on is that they don't Jike Roosevelt and' they want jobs," Thomas charged during the debate, on '^reduction lor Use vs. Production for Profit." Declaring both the Republicans and the/ New Deal have failed to solve problems of production, Thomas predicted that the profit system through private ownership o£ major production means cannot live much longer.
