Page 2-B Heeding Good Advice Despite some rainfall, Oregon- ians and our forestry people are extremely concerned about this persistent dry per:od. Rangelands throughout the Cocluille valley as well as throughout the entire state and eastern Washington are tinder dry. The Regional Forester of the U.S. Forest Service, Theodore Schlapfer, in a statement issued Friday commented, &apos;We're now asking that people volumtarily stay out of the woods, at least until we get a good soaking rain ." To help in programs of fire pre- vention, the forester reports that special agents and fire prevention specialists have come from the sou- theastern, southwestern and nor- thern states where fire danger is relatively low. By the weekend the regional forester vowed to have seven special investigators in the Northwest on the Rogue River, Malheur, Wallowa-Whitman, Mt. Hood, and Fremont National For- ests in Oregon and on the Okano- gan National Forest in Washington. Wecan all help by heeding the advice of the foresters and stay out of the woods until this extreme fire danger passes. This has already been an extre- mely busy fire season in National Forests and the Pacific Northwest Region. As of the end of August, over 1,700 fires, blackening near- ly 26,000 acres have been report- ed. (According to Forest Service reports, at the same time last year 1,855 acres had burned in Oregon and Washington.) Of these, 976 were man-caused. Few campers realize, according to Mr. Schlap- fer, that they may be held liable for suppression costs, should their carelessness cause a forest fire. One camper was recently cl ted for having a campfire in an area clo- sed to open fires The flames burned out of control and the camper will be billed For p'Jrt or all of the $16,000 required to put out the resulting blaze.

Oregon 4-H members made everything from elaborate decorated cakes to slmle' baking bis- cuits for their exhibits. The variety of baked goods shown probably the greatest yet, notes Mary Anne Green- lurid, Coos County 4-H agent, reflects the increase flexibil- ity allowed 4-H members to explore various loots in the 4-H foods and nutrition pro- jects.
