Appeals for help are being made by various agencies and individuals in a monetary form due to extreme conditions of dry weather, oi which no let up is in sight. A large number of counties in this state will receive financial aid from the gov- espment as a result of the current drought. , We, of the Arkansas State Forestry Commission, would also Iik4 .to issue an appeal for help. The memories of the fall of 1952i if the present conditions continue could b^ made to look mediocre, It was during the fall of that year that history was made to open its pages and swallow the worst forest |>re season ever to be had in the Bjpte of Arkansas. The southern part of the state suffered the largest of the losses due to forest fires. Our state is broken down by nat» ural boundaries, county lines, etc. into Forest Protection Units of; the Arkansas State Forestry Commission, These units are then broken down into districts, in, which there is a Ranger to everydistrict. The units are made up of from 4 to 5 counties on the average and cover Sjaperal thousand acres of land. Al- sr.',} the units are fire plows which number from 2 to 4 to the unit, This above information will enable the reader to understand what is meant when the term "unit" is referred to. ,....As it was stated in a prdvious paragraph tho area hardest hit in Arkansas during the fall of 105? was the southern portion,' which would be Forest Protection Units Jfo ( 8 and p.

Having rebuffed McCarthy twice, the committee moved on to the second of the five general charges on. the basis of which his critics contend he should be censured that he has "abused" his col leagues in the Senate.

Williams earlier objected to the contempt charge-on grounds that the issue arose in a previous Con gross, not in this one.
