How much is it
A
WORTH?
You can't put a real price tag on telephone service. Who
can say what it's worth when it brings a doctor quickly?
Can you set a price on the pleasure of hearing a loved
one's voice from many miles away? How would yon
value the countless minutes and steps it saves in every,
day living? Whatever the telephone is worth, its cost
is small for the many services it performs every day.

NATIONAL FORESTS IN MONTANA
—By Rutledge Parker, State Forester.
There are 12 National Forests in Montana, the forested por
tions of which contain 15,201,000 acres. Names and headquarters
of the forests are as follows: Absarokee at Livingston, Beaver
head at Dillon, Bitterroot at Hamilton, Cabinet at Thompson
Falls, Custer at Billings, Deer Lodge at Butte, Flathead at Kalis
pell, Gallatin at Bozeman, Helena at Helena, Kootenai at Libby,
Lewis and Clark at Great Falls and Lolo at Missoula.
These forests were originally created through a proclamation
by the President of the United States. The areas embraced
therein were unreserved public domain lands. When first created
they were known as Forest Reserves and were administered
by the Department of the Interior until 1905 when they were
transferred to the Department of Agriculture and soon after
were known as National Forests.
The administration has developed a very elaborate and effi
cient system of forest fire protection. The Federal Government
through the U. S. Forest Service, cooperates with the states in
forest fire perfection under authority of Clark-McNary act, 1924.
The natural resources within National Forests are available
•to the people but use is regulated to guarantee perpetuation. The
forested lands of the state are of great importance in future
development. They are related to its industries, irrigations, hydro
electric power, wildlife, other recreational resources, and to
pasturage of livestock.
