THE FIRE PATROL
Will Co-operate With Foresi
Service in Preventing De«
PORTLAND, July 3. — Plans are being
formulated for a co-operative system of
flre patrol between the forest service
and the lumbermen's protective asso
ciations in northern Idaho. The asso
ciations represented are the Potlach
timber association, Clearwater flre pro
tective'association, Coeur d'Alene tim
ber protective association and the Pend
Oreille timber protective association.
The proposed agreement between the
several associations and the forest serv
ice for ; patrolling the territory that
comes within the boundaries of the
national forests In Idaho, and the hold
ings of the several private associations,
was unanimously adopted at a Joint
meeting, of the officers, directors and
members of the several associations In
terested, and is substantially as fol
1. The secretary of eaoh association is au
thorized to act with the district forester or his
representatives In establishuiir co-operative flre
districts which Include national forest and as
sociation lands up to any reasonable or neces
sary limit outside of the national foreot, de
termining the acreage of the holdings of each
party In each district, and establishing upon the
basis of such acreage a pro rata share which
each person shall pay of all expenditures, in
tddltion to and not Including the salaries of
traveling expenses of the men engaged on ac
tual patrol work, which may be incurred In ex
tinguishing forest fires in that district. \u25a0 *
2. The agreement is to apply only to natlonsl
forest land end to lands owned by the asso
ciations which are included In the co-operative
flre districts to be established in the manner
above prescribed. >
3. The forest service is to furninb such pa
trolmen on these areas as are available under
Its appropriation; and: the' association will fur
nish not 1 less than an equal number for Its
lands, on the basis of acreage per man. The
supervisor of each national forest shall make
such arrangements as are practicable. with the
local flre wardens of the association to divide
areas for patrol and any other arrangements ad
visable to avoid duplication of work and to
make the patrol by both parties most economical
4. Every "member of both patrol force* in the
co-operative fire district «• to keep a vigilant
lookout for forest fires and' exert every effort to
extinguish them, whether on lands belonging to
the association or to the government. The asso
ciation and the forest service shall furnish the
services of all their available employes to flcht
fires which can not be extinguished by the regu
lar patrol forces of the district. The patrolman
in each district Is authorized to purchase tools
and supplies, hire temporary • men and pay other
expenses necessary to extinguish any fires in
the district. '
6.. Each co-operative district will be placed
for purposes of flre fighting In charge of an offi
cer to be agreed upon by the forest '"Pfrcisor
and the secretary of the association. This offi
cer will assume charge, when present, of all
firts within his district. The first patrolman
who reaches t flre, the officer In charge of the
district not being prewnt, shall assume charge of
the fire until such district officer arrives.
6 The association agrees to give the forest
service the privilege of constructing roads \u25a0or
trail* across their foldings, not to exceed four
feet In width, f«r flre protective purposes.
During the latter part of May Dis
trict Forester Greeley met the secre
taries of each association, and final
maps, outlining co-operative districts
and definitely determining. the pro rata
share for eactr"" district, were com
pleted. This will insure the co-opera-,

Nearly Causes Death of Patient
From Hemorrhage After
Uniquely Pulling Tooth
OAKLAND, July S. — An amateur
dental operation. In which. :FraaJc
O'Day, a laborer, had a troublesome
molar withdrawn, all but caused sis
death by a hemorrhage, which tasned.
O'dsiy, assisted, by a friend, tied a,
stout silk line about the tooth and.
fastened the either end to a heavy
piece of furniture.
The friend then shoved the blazins
end of a stick of wood from the kitch
en range . into close proximity to
O'Day'a face. Though O*Day knew It
was coming, he promptly drew back
and the tooth dangled" at the end ot
Elated with his success. O'Day, how
ever, became alarmed at the profuse
bleeding. After trying 1 to staunch the
flow for eight hours' he reported at
the receiving hospital and measures
were taken which undoubtedly saved
hig life in checking the hemorrhage.
