From Superintendent C. H. Rogers the following article was obtained: There wert 2,220 4cres burned over of which only 224 acres were government land.
There was a high wind, and the wire
grass, covered with piude straw and second groth timber, burned with an exceedingly 4igh speed. The fire was sucoesfully con.trolledi the same afternoon of ,te day i.t started. Because of the great area a id the number of burning stumps a consid-drably large amount of tide w~as spent mop-

CAMP BEAUTIFICATION Ofe
SIt looks like our camp is on the way ta being the prettiest camp in the south. sergeant 'Abqhire has been busy working around here doing some real land.caping, we are glad he has -removed the old Rail fences and placed rooks around the plots of grss. The evergreens have added much to the beauty of the camp area. perhaps the Georgia. boys in camp will feel more at home with the addition of the clay walks.
tLatis cooperate by throwing all paper scraps and cigarettebutts in the little neat boxes placed in the camp area for that
purpoce. perhaps if we are very careful :we may. be able to eliminate police Call.

the rec
our pages thi week ar'j taken.
up to .a large da' with accounts of the great fire. Now. eve, y.n int the company has had an exp 'ter. i .:ill standC
out in his memory; an experience which wil teach the value 01 caution and ex. treme chrefulress Wzlo in the forest. .
;very year millions of acres of timb land are.,destroyed because of that one devastated, fire. It is well to impress upon every fellows mind that a single thoughtless act could be the cause of a conflagration that may destroy thousands of'dollars worth of plant and animal life
l serious penalty would be imposed upon-any person caught setting a dangerous fire'within the forest preserve, but the unthoughtful fellow who throws down a lighted cigarette most always is.undetected.
The season when~are most prevalent is drawing closer. Fire Guard maintainence will be doubled and,in some cases, tripled. Its going to be tough but if the proper precautionary measures are taken by every inhabitant of the forest wo ma, pass the summer with comparatively little fire fighting activity...

- EDITORIAL COMMENT
A sad state of affairs, indeed,
must exist when the assistant 'o.' clerk
is found .situated in the woodjyard mooing like a lost cow. At the approach of your correspondent, the -assfstant announced proudly that he was. a niggr in ;he woodpile. Not only that but a Russian nigger to boot.. whereupon he started singing wThe vulgar boatswain. A sad state indeed.
It is a very~not to say the least, peculiar coincidence that the Infirmary attendants assistant happened to fall out of a tree not far from said woodyard..
The editorial dignity has been sever ly shocked. It is high time that somethinA be done when the Asst. CEA and the supply sergeant attempt to incarcerate ye Ed. in the wavelets of Lake Kerr.
The trip to Daytona must have been a success, just now I have been interupited by several of the survivors and generlly it looks as if asgood time was hadbya

New Ideas to make things safer put into effect
Safety Council Geared Up to make a safer futuie,
At the weekly meeting of the Safety Council composed of all the Forester and 0 ficers of the Company held last Tuesday night, several uggestions were advanced which will doubtless be of considerable aid in keeping our accidents down to the irreducible minimum.
The use of ladders to facilitate loading ,and unloading of work crows was erdorsod and put into effect the following day. Plans wo re forulated and adopted for the institution of a Junior Council composed of all Loaders and Aacitant Loaders. This Oouncil will also moot wookly at a regular time,. Thoir reconmond,ations will be made in writing to. the Safety Council.
Company 1420 has been fortunate in having .a' fow accidents, ao it has had, against its record* -Such good fortune is not luck, but 'ather the reflection of the care and diligence of th: foreman and leaders in thc field and in Camp.
Accidents donit happen. they occur. They ars caused, It is to each mans
sfbsnyshr yo fo all he van to eliminate their cause and prevent their occurrence.
Camp Beautification
It looks like our camp is on the way to being the prettiest in the South. Sergeant Abehire has been busy working around here oing uom real genuine landscape work of mraeriti, He has, as we couldurlt help but notice renooed the old rail fences and place rocks around the green carpets of grass, planted evergreens and changed the appearance of the camp considerably. Perhaps our Georgia boys will feel at home now that we have plenty of clay paths and roads in camp.
If we want to keep the cbmp looking like a first class place, lets cooperate and refrain from throwing paper around and maybe if we are real careful, we might eliminate police call from out list.
A Woman
Shets an angel in truth, a demon in fiction, womants the greatest of all contra dictions.
Shets afraid of a cockroach, shell screa at a hIouse, but he'o1l tackle a husband as big as a house.
She'll take him for better, shell take him for worse she'll split his head open and then be his nurse and when hels well and gets out of bed, chetll work him so hard that hell wish he was dead.
Shets faithful, deceitful, keen sighted and blind, she s cra ty, shets simple, sheet s cruel, and sheta kind.
She'll lift a man up, she'll throw a man down, shelll crown him her king, then make him her clown.
You fancy shels this but you'll f ind that she's that, for sh'l11 play like a kitten and scratch like a cat.
In the morning she will, in the evening she wont, Youtre alway expecting she does but she dontt,
Poem
Now Mr. Collins is a happy man He has said goodbye to fateBecause he has been assigned .to drive ,The Brand New Ford V-8,
We are mighty proud, to see ...A great man used to prosperity,
A man who will someday rate...io the man to handle the Ford V-8.

She’ll lift a man up, she’ll throw a nan down, .she’ll crovm hi^^ her king, then make him her clown, \ You fancy she’s this but you'll find that she’s that, for she’ll play like a kitten and scratch like a cat. > In the morning she will, in the evening oho wont, You’re alway expecting she docs but she don’t. • Poon • Now Mr, Collins is a happy nan Ho has said goodbye to fateBecause he has been as signed to drive jThe Brand New Ford V~8.
