SATTRAIJST SAYS K1JES WILL SWARM NEXT WEEK Swallows Due to Migrate About Aug ust 2, Then Typhoid Pests Have Their Innings University of Oregon, Eugene. July 22 On or about August 2, a week from next Mon'ay, the swal low will leave Oregon. Then look out for flies. This is the prediction of Dr. C. K. Hodge, the naturalist at the University of Oregon, who has spent more than a year in the state studying biological conditons and their effect upon living conditions in Oregon. Dr. Hodge's students are this week conducting a fly census or sur vey of the city of Eugene, which is the only place in the state In which an anti-fly sanitation campaign has been conducted for more than one year. In this, the second summer of Dr. Hodge's work. Eugene has been so nearly flyless that the city health officer felt able to state that there was scarcely enough brieding stock left to supply Eugene with flies next year. This Dr. Hodge be lieves is too strong a statement. He says preventive work has been good enough to have considerable effect with the help of the swallows, which are the busiest fly catchers, but that August 2 there has got ta be a more thorough cleaning up or old time fly conditions will be re peated. Nineteen other cities started anti fly work this year but none of them has approached success so closely as tugene. Dr. Dodge believes, how ever, that the educational work lias oeen sufficient to furnish a good basis for satisfactory elimination next year. FOREST FIRE BULLETIN Portland. Ore.. July 31 -Soveral hundred forest fires successfully handled with practically no loss of sreen timber Is tho Pacific northwest record for the driest July since 1910, according to bulletins received from a number ot states by the Western Forestry Conservation Association. Fires for the most part have been In old slashings or burns, and while Riling the country with smoke and in places severely taxing the patrol forces, prompt action has robld them of the usual toll of green tim ber or logging equipment. The woods are now extremely dry, and although the full patrol force Is on duty, the utmost vigilance will have to be exercised to prevent disastrous fires. The worst of the fire season is still to be passed through. Washington bad 75 fires during July, nearly all of them being slash ing fires. A few Iocs were burned as well as some camp equipment, and the improvement of one settler. Ac curate figures on losses are not avail able but the amount Is small taking into account the number of fires oc currlug. Donkey engines, ln.-omotlv-es, berry pickers, and lightning are given as the causes of the fires About 100 men are on patrol duty for the Washington Forest Flro As sociation, while the State Fire W'urd en lias on some 70 men. Idaho in common with other stntes has experienced high temperatures and practically no fain during July A numler of fires have started but prompt discovery has practically pre vented loss. A small amount of green timber lias been Ore-killed. Campers, lightning and brush-burning are responsible for nearly nil ores which nave orcured In the state. The full patrol force Is on duty. Montana has experienced no severe fires. The State and Forest S-rvire are cooperating in an egort properly to cover the timbered sections adja cent to the National Forests. Oregon reports about lno fires for the month, the most severe ones being In old slashings. An Inconsid erable amount ot green timber 1ms been fire-killed. The State Forester has 90 men on patrol paid by State and Weeks law funds and private owners are employing 300 wardens. Telephone service which has been greatly Improved the past year Is proving a. marked factor in protec tion work. High winds, hot weather and practically no precipitation have put the woods In dangerous condition. Id-ports from portions of Californ ia Indicate more favorable conditions than last season, whllo contrary l true elsewhere In the northwest. Throughout tho northwest the pre parations iimdo early In the season to meet a bud year are proving extre mely helpful. Never before has such close working cooperation Misl ed between tho Government, Slates, and private patrols, and to this can bo largely attributed the success of tho work up to the present time. From now on hunters and campers will bo going Into tho mountains, ami their cooperation Is needed to prevent fires. Loggers, road builders and ranchers should be doubly caro ful with fire. Only through such caro will serious fires be averted. HER VICTORY FOR LOCMS It was the same old story over a tnin at Woodland last Sunday and this time the score was 12 to 6. Which was a rather poor score for the boys to run up on that bunch over there, It had ought to have been about 25 to 5. Those who took the trip over had it nice time as far as the trip was ronrerned, but as far as the exhibition of the great nation il game went the less said tho better. The Woodland team has been beat en so many times at the hands of St. Helens that when they go Into a game they arc beaten liefore the "nine starts, and the St. Helens plnyers regard It more or less of a Joke to play them, and take no In terest in the game whatever. The game Sunday wna feu I tired by the rag chewing and crabbing ot the Woodland players and the only one on that team who n.wmwl to have any semblance to a good clean sport and a gentleman was Hogget win played first base.
