BERYL E. BETH Forest Fires Cost Farmers Money, Agent Asserts Forest tires will cost the pc6- plc of Washington County thousands of dollars during the nex' few months unless action is taker now. Washington Counly cannoi nfforcl the luxury of having merchantable timber, «crcs of seedlings and valuable h u m u s hurncd according to Counly Agent Car Rose. . Such fires, Hose Bald, do kill a few insects and may have some value--but when one considers both good nnd bad, wild 'woods fires do not pay. ItTias been definitely proved t h n t woods burning is wasted effort In "the control ol Insects such as licks.' Due to a favorable growing season, there is an abundance of inflammable material on most farms, Including a heavy stand of sedge grass. Because of thjs hazardous condition, everyone Is asked to work togclhcr to keep Washington County under "blanket of green," Rose said. The county agent suggests everyone remember that: 1. Burning kills nature's crop of seedlings and young trees needed .0 establish a new forest,, 2. Severe fires will kill some of .he larger trees, weaken and slow down the growth of others, and cause tree injuries by burning the jflrk and.scorching the tops. 3. Fire damage encourages bark cetles and rot-producing diseases. 4. Fire injuries may lower the 'aluc of. trees one-half to two- hirds. · 5. Fire frequently destroys valuable woods products already cut, uch as fuel wood, logs and lum- er. Fire-scarred pulpwood 'is re- eded by 'the buyers because sucl turned wood cannot be bleached ucccssfully. 6. Fire damages the top soi when humus is turned to ashes Croslon following the fire damages lie streams and riverj.

The name of Democratic Senator Kcfauvcr of Tennessee was filed! before the deadline last night by] backers wearing coonskin cops. ' n Wisconsin, meanwhile, there ·irosc a possibility that General Eisenhower's backers and Gov. Sari Warren of California might !orm a coalition. Philip F. LaFoIlellc, former Wisconsin governor, announced ,hat a conference would be held n Madison today to enter such a slate in the state's GOP primary April 1. · If Warren accepted the plan he would agree to enter the primary ind campaign in Wisconsin. Delegates elected in his name would support him nt the national contention, but by agreement would h i f t their votes to Eisenhower if t became apparent Warren could lot win. However, there was an indica- lon Warren might not accept the JiFolleltc plan.' He told a' news onfcrcnce in Sacramento, Calif., yesterday his endorsement of Eisenhowers foreign policies was 10 implication he was leaning oward a possible Eiscnhower- Varrcn coalition. The California governor said he ocs not know Eisenhower's stand in domestic issues and therefore cannot know whether he approves or disapproves .of them. Eisenhower lias said he will not "seek the nomination but will accept if It is offerer! to him. Top Mtn "Deadlocked"? Representative Hilling (R-Calif) said at Kccne, N.

(International, France May Have To Trim Defense Effort Financial Situation Critical; Imports To Be Cut Sharply (By The Associated Cress) France is in such a critical- financial state that drastic trimming of her defense effort seems in- evitabic, and she is backtracking on Important trade liberties fostered by Marshall aid. Already the country has gone back heavily into the "quota" system of trade. One of th- major aims of the U. S. economic aid scheme was to reduce 'such trade barriers in Europe. Falling in line, France removed an estimated 75 per cent of her quota trade restrictions. Now she is scaling back so that only dboul 40 per cent of these yains are bojng preserved. Her ncv/ restrictions are designed lo cut imports from other-Kurn- ncan countries by 14 million dol- ' a r s " to 20 million dollars per month. A defense effort, that once was expected to reach about five billion dollars seems likely cut back to about 3tt billion dollars-and part of this bill will have to come, from America. A government which last month sought higher taxes for -defense already has fallen. So unsteady is the franc in the eyes of investors thai it is quoted on the black market at about 460 lo the dollar. The official rate is 350. The government has repeatedly denied the franc will be devalued, but merchants and investors have for some time between been cx- pcclina devaluation to cu.t Ihc franc's value to about its black market worth. A devaluation is not likely to come before next month. The franc has been quoted at the reduced value so long that pi ices have tended to catch up with it, making a doubly difficult job of forcing back both inflated money and inflated prices.
