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
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
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
