U. S. Forest Addition
Sought to Preserve
'Hiawathaland'
812,254-Acre Purchase
In Michigan Urged by
Representative Hook
Completion of another great Na
tional Forest to preserve the natural
heritage of the American people is
in the offing. ,
Legislative wheels are being oiled
on Capitol Hill to save another large
portion of "Hiawathaland" — the
Shining Big Sea Water immortalized
in Longfellow's poem.
Representative Frank E. Hook,
Democrat, of Michigan and a mem
ber of the House Agriculture Com
mittee, said vesterday he will call
public hearings within three weeks
on his bill tinder which the Govern
ment would acquire, at a cost of
$10,000,000, land lying in Northern
Michigan between the Wisconsin
Terrier. Lake Superior and the
Keweenaw Peninsula to complete
Ottawa National Forest.
Mr. Hook introduced the measure
at thp last Congress, but it was not
reported out of committee. He hopes
for its passage in this session, he
says.
At me present time tnis tract,
wherein is one of the few stands of
virgin timber left east of the Rockies,
is the only large national forest
acquisition belore the Agriculture
Committee. Its purchase would pro
vide economic security for the in
habitants of the area and at the
Fame time provide unparalleled rec
retation facilities for populous Lake
State cities, Mr. Hook contends.
Valuable for Timber.
The area of the proposed Ottawa
National Forest is 1.743,308 acres. Of
this 568.820 acres have been bought
or will be purchased by the Govern
ment. leaving 812.254 acres to be
Acquired. The area comprises parts
of Baraga. Gogebic. Houghton, Iron
and Ontonagon Counties.
The area is described as broken
ter rain abounding in lakes, woods,
streams, fish and game. In its
northwestern portion lie the Porcu
pine Mountains, rising to more than
2.000 feet. From this high land the
area drains into Lake Superior. Lake*
Michigan and the Mississippi River.
However. Mr Hook pointed out
yesterday, about 90 per cent of the
land is chiefly valuable for timber
resources. These are at present
bring lumbered by the old "clear all"
method by private companies and
the wooded part of the area is im
mediately threatened with the de
duction which commonly follows
tins tvpe of logging operation—no
treps left for seed, danger of raging
fires, soil erosion and attendant
diminution of fish and game stocks.
He said that most of the land
already acquired is cut-over land
and that the land supporting timber
growth is still open to private ex
ploitation.
Would Relieve Unemployment.
“Unless this uncut area is saved
by Government purchase." Mr. Hook
said, "the area will go the way of
so many Lake State sections now
barren and desolate since the days
when the great mill towns of Michi
gan were built on 40 solid feet of
sawdust."
In addition to conservational rea
sons for completing purchase of the
area. Mr. Hook and Forest Service
officials say the project would alle
viate the unemployment and relief
situations in the area.
In the past the section was part

ing region. Arizona. Montana. Chile

creased cost and difficulty of mining,
ruined this industry. The poor soil
was farmed out and the white pine
of early logging days was cut off.
Selective cutting and propagating
of the forests and preservation of
recreative aspects of the land are
offered by the park backers as the

Roosevelt to help solve United
States-Argentine trade difficulties in
order to combat "Nazi economic and

of American cars by 70 per cent. ,
The syndicate's cable to Mr
Roosevelt pointed out that one
