they had not been very cautious and safety minded the figures might be telling an altogether different tale. According to A. C. Altvater, project superintendent and G. N. Hicks, safety director, the trucks have been kept in near perfect running condition and out of the shop due to the strict attention that the drivers have given to their mechanical features. The drivers have lived up to the safety rules expressively.
The mileage traveled by the trucks during September, October and November brings thi tota mileage up to 675,006 for the vehicles, since they were placed into operation on the job over two and a half years ago. The drivers have not had a single accident during this length of time, causable by them.
Realizing that this type of safety record over such a period of time is unusual and one to be exceedingly proud of, The Rogers-Post, would like to offer it as a challenge to other camp papers and ask them to show us a record equally as good or better.
SETS WILD TURKEYS
The animal life in Highlands Hammock State Park has been enriched by a gift of wild turkeys which were secured through the cooperation of State Game Protector Lilly, agent of the Game and Fresh Water Fish commission.
The turkeys will be confine lat the park for a short period and then they will be released to shift for themselves in this natural subtropical forest of palms, oaks and cypress. They should do well here as the area is protected from fire and hunting. It has excellent cover and an abundance of food for turkeys and other native birds and animAs which are abundant.
The park was intended by the donors as a sanctuary for native wild life and a place where the public could see undisturbed flowers shrubs and trees common to Florida's fast disappearing hammocks.
It is hoped that the turkeys will stay in the park, and that it will be possible for visitors ot secure glimpses of this typically American bird.
The park is administered by the Florida Park Service, an agency of the Florida Board of Forestry.
Filled by Beach
Chaplain B. S. Beach, who has assumed the duties of Lt. H. C. Keller, in this sub-district, spent the day at camp on Monday. He gave a brief talk to the entire company during the evening mess.
He stated that he considered the brief religious services conducted by the chaplain a very small part of his duties, but the personal contacts and services rendered to the members more important and he hopes that he can be of service to those having problems.
Chal~lain Beach intends tovfDsit. the camp about twice a month.

on FIremen's Field last flight the CCC team came through with a touchdown in the third quarter and tied the former stars of Sebring High School, 6 to 6. 1he game was hard fought from beginning to end and at no time did one team show any great superiority over the other.

On the first play of the second
quarter Waldron crashed over from the three yard line for the first scoe of the game and the score remained 6 to 0 as Fulton's kick went wild. The CCC chose to receive and Hood brought the ball back from the 20 to the 35. Neither was able ot gain consistently although Sebring made two first downs to I for the CCC. The half ended with the ball in the possession of Sebring
The second half opened with Sebring receiving, Hood bringing the ball back from his 25 to the 35. Nothing of any importance happened in this period until near the end when Hood intercepted a Sebring pass in mid-field and returned it to the Sebring 8. On the first play Price drove to the three yard marker, then a five yard penalty for off sides and three consecutive bad passes from the center allowed Sebring to regain the ball. Fulton kicked out of bounds on the Sebring 45. On the first play Price passed to McBride on the Sebring 20, McBride going on to the Sebring 8 before being downed. Price passed to Padgett who made a beautiful catch and crossed the goal line standing up.

The small saw mill which was set up a considerabe time ago and .1 being. perated by the enrollees, is saving materials which would have had to be thrown away and at the same time speeding up the production. The mill is turning out the shingles for the various buildings from cypress blocks. It also has sawed some two by four's to be used here and there, when needed. The present saw mill is powered by the tractor.
Certain projects are under consideration in higher departments and if approved they will call for lumber that can be cut by a larger saw mill. It is understood.that arrangements are being made to secure the proper outfit to do the work on the job.

FLORIDA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11, 1936 Number 5 ENROLLEES GET I B!G BEREFiTS j FROM PROJECTS projects at the Florida Botanical Garden and Arboretum and Highlands Hammock are proving a wide range of training for the enrollees. One of the most interesting and largest jobs that have been worked on for some time, is the construction of a culvert on Tiger Branch drive, which was begun a few weeks ago. Various types of work will go into the building of the structure. With only a few' exceptions the labor and construction of the materials to be used will be done entirely by the CCC workers. The re-enforcing steel in the culvert is being worked into the various shapes. Carpentry and masonry work will give the boys a chance to gain more practical knowledge of these crafts. Much of the work is very tedious and will require exactness m measurements for which the boys are trained for by R. A. Mann, construction engineer. Altogether different i form and one v;hich will require several hundreds of man-days, is the project under which section four, a portion of the Park area, is being rehabilitated with a great quantity of shrubbery and trees of various kinds. Up to the present time there has been 3000 plants moved in from various parts of the surrounding vicinity and planted. It is estimated that it will take several thousand more to meet the requirements. The purpose of this particular job is to restore this section of land which is considerably barren to its original wild and natural state, which existed prior to its devastation by countless fires and other menaces. Section four at one time wa snearly as rich in vegetation as the section of land known as Highlands Hammock. Boys working on the crew which (Continued on Page 2) Believing that the safety record of Highlands Camp, Fla. Sp-10 and Company 453, is one that stands as a tribute to the ceaseless efforts and continued Â‘thoughtfulness of not only the officials in charge, but each individual member. The Rogers-Post is proud to herald it to cur fellow comrades in other parts of the country. In going over the safety reports of the working unit and the company, for the months of September, October and November it was learned that the trucks have traveled 78,365 miles. Enrollees have put in 6,476 man-days or 45,332 manhours on the job without losing a single day due to accident caused by tools or carelessness on the part of the workers. The above figures and statements may not mean so much as they are quoted, but when one takes into consideration that in performing their respective duties during these many hours, the enrollees have been obliged to work with tools and under certain circumstances, unless Uniforms For Team while in camp Tuesday, Captain Tatum, officially approved the expenditure of a suitable amount of money to outfit the complete varsity basketball team of the company. The uniforms for the team will consist of jerseys, trunks, shoes. A new basket ball also will be purchased.

BEAyTiFICATION WORK STARTED AT 0.0.0, 0AMP Tile extensive beautification program of the camp site has been begun under the direction of W. H. Norris, foreman on the ECW personnel of Highlands Camp.

The tribute was in the form of an introduction of Mr. Fechner at the Dedicatory program of Highlands Hammock, by Mrs. Linwod Jeffreys, Park Members of the Florida Board of Forestry. ^ Â“We have a visitor with us who heads one of the largest universities, if not the largest, in the world, the university referred to is the Civilian Conservation Corps.Â” Â“This constructive force for the building of American manhood is a great part of the National Recovery Program for our country. The man who heads this fine organization is very modest in manner, very retiring in nature but in actual attainment he is one of the truly great. To some of the personality of the speaker Who will give the dedication talk for Highlands Hammock State Park I would like to make the remark that he is one wl^o loves his fellowman. Can any tribute be deeper? In this day of Â‘wars and rumors of warsÂ’it is most gratifying to hav a director general of the Civilian Conservation Corps of these United States a man whose greatness is only equalled by this deep understanding of an Army of Construction rather than Army of Destruction. It is with confidence in the Civilian Conservation CorpsÂ’ achievements in the past and for the future that I have the honor to introduce to you the Director of the Emergency Conservation Work for the United States, the Honorable Albert Fechner.Â” The winter season has decended upon Florida again and with it brings the tourist cavalcade. Many will pass by out front door, figuratively speaking, v/hen they travel by the camp on their v/ay to tour Highlands Hammock and the Florida Botanical Garden and Arboretum. Naturally they will observe not only the grounds and buildings but v/ili pay strict attention to our appearance and behavior. It is left up to each individual the impression that is to be made upon the countless numbers. Remember! The first impression sometimes is a lasting impression.

CCC enrollees will trim out trees ; of undesirable species and thin dense i stands to give choice young trees a chance for a more rapid developi ment into marketable timber, and seedlings will be planted to reclaim devastated areas. Wide stretches of Florida pineland have been restocked in young pines and over 200,000 acres of valuable timber on National Forest lands have been improved since the establishment of the CCC camps in Florida. Florida is considered one of the most popular recreational spots in the United States and the CCC has played an important part in promoting the attractiveness of the forests from a recreational standpoint. Forest, recreation has been made available for out of state tourists as well as local communities through the construction and improvements mads at camping and picnic places throughout the forests. Among the outsanding accomplishments by the CCC is the recreational development at Juniper Springs. This semi-tropical jungle was almost inaccessible before the man power of the CCC made it possible to open it up and build roads to make its beauty available. These springs have a flow of crystal clear water at the rate of six million gallons a day. Surrounded by _a Vxuriant growth of tall pines, oaks and palmettos and a deep cover of tropical shrubs and low palms, the area cannot be surpassed in natural beauty. Here have been built swimming pools and bathhouses, stone bridges, a registration pavilion, and a game laboratory. There are open fireplaces, camp stoves, drinking fountains, picnic tables and benches, and other features to minister to the comfort and convenience of visitors; Accomplishments chalked up by the CCG during its existence on state and private lands in Florida include much work for protecting the forests against fires which have in the past destroyed millions of dollars worth of FloridaÂ’s timber growth. 37,933 man days have been expended in actual fire fighting arM 57,498 man days utilized for fire pre-suppression and prevention. 41 lookout towers, 679 miles of telephone lines and 1,408 miles of truck trails have been constructed. In addition to this, the CCC has planted many thousands of acres in pine trees, collected cones for nursery use, and engaged in other acthnties that will help to perpetuate FloridaÂ’s forests for future generaticrrs.
