Thc foresters say' thc situation didn't become critical until" thc hunting season opened. They suspect cold hunters lighted *mall v^arming lircs — and failed to make sure they were put out. Probably amateur hunters. Any£mc familiar with thc woods recognizes thorn as being as dangerous today as a powder magazine — so dry thai a squirrel can hear you walking a mile away, and where a fire is thc last thing wanted by man or beast. The real danger isn't for right now — it's still ahead of us. We've had no wind to speak of. But when this calm breaks up we can expect real trouble. One good rain would strip the ® trees of their frost-killed leaves and relieve the situation. But thc long-range weather forecast, as I write this, is for continued dry weather. So we've got lo live with the present danger. We've got to follow the same rules they use in the Western forests: Don't throw your cigarette out the car window.
