More Men Needed for Lumbermen's Regtment Six thousand additional men are wanted at once to bring the Twentieth Engineer (Forest) regiment up to full strength, according to officials of the ' For est Service who have been re quested by the War. Department to aid in securing the necessary recruits. This is the second forest reeiment formed by the War Department and will be the biggest regiment in the world The first forest regiment has been in France for j several months, busy in cutting and get ting out of the French forests timber, lumber, and other ma terial for our army. Some bat talions of the .Twentieth have also gone across, and others will follow as their equipment and preliminary training are com pleted. Men who enter this unit are therefore assured, the officials say, of. early service abroad. Men can join the regiment by enlistment if not of draft age and if within the age limits, which are from 18 to 40. Re gistrants under the selective draft law who haye not been no tified to hold themselves in read iness to report tor duty at a camp can be "inducted" into the regiment if they can show that they are qualified for it. Applicants for enlistment or induction may apply by letter to the Supervisor, Snowflake, or to the various listing officers who have been receiving local applications for places in the forest regiments. Letters of application must contain a full statement of experience in any of the various lines of work in volved, with names and address es of employers. Three thousand' of the 'men wanted will consist of lumber jacks, sawmill workers, and men experienced in building and operating Slogging railroads. The other". three thousand will make up threelroadfand bridge building battalions which will serve as'auxiliary to.the logging and sawmill units. For these road-building battalions men who are familiar with the opera tionjof rockierushers., road roll ers, scrapers and Ithe operation of rock crushers road rollers, scrapers and graders, motor truck drivers, and laborers ex perienced in road work are re quired. The lumbering and sawmill battalions will be made up of men skilled in every phase of manufacturing and delivering lumber and other forest products needed in the conduct of the war. Sawyers, teamsters, axe men, tie makers, cooks, and charcoal burners are some of the classes wanted for the woods operations. Graders, tracklay ers, track bosses, locomotive en gineers and firemen, brakemen, machinists and laborers are needed to construct and operate logging railroads. Men skilled in all kinds of work around saw mills, including filers, stationary engineers, boiler makers, trucu and tractor operators and labor ers for lumberyards are required. National Forest Grazing Pri vileges Must Not Be Sold The Secretary of Agriculture is notifying all holders of per mits for grazing livestock on the National Forests that the pay ment of any bonus or allowance for waiver of the grazing privi lege in connection with sales of livestock or ranch properties will be cause for revocation of the permit. This is in accordonce with one of the regulations governing the use of the National Forests for grazing privileges, which provi des that permits will be granted only for the exclusive use and benefit of the owners of the stock and will be forfeited if sold or transferred in any man ner or for any consideration. To protect permittees who may wish to dispose of their property againest the losses which sacri fice sales would involve, it has been cuBtomary to allow conti nued use of the National Forest ranges by the new owner. With out some provision for this, the Forest Service grazing officials point out. holders of permits who wish to go out of business would not be able to obtain a fair value for their property. But the procedure has aimed throughout at such a safeguard ing of the situation as would prevent the acquisition of any thing approaching vested rights in the public property by private individuals or companies. Owing to the great and ever growing demand for use of the Forest ranges, which is now in most regions' far beyond their capacity, the grazing privilege is of large value. Upon the Na tional Forests the Government applies a system of regulated use designed to encourage pro duction, promote the upbuilding of the country alone healthv ines, and secure the greatest good to the greatest number, but makes only a "moderate charge for the grazing permits. In the view of those in charge of the National Forest crraziner business, it would be entirely unfair'for the publicto forage a maximum return for the value of use of its"property and then allow those granted the privilege of use to collect this value from others, as the price of surrender- ng their privileges. Such ' a practice would they say, make competitive disposal by the' Go- ernment of the grazing the only logical course. As Secretary Houston says in warning the range users thatthe payment of bonuses or the giv- ng of any consideration to se cure the filing of a waiver of the grazing privilege is prohibited. Such a payment would be a consideration for a privilege the granting of which is wholly within the discretion of the Go vernment and for which no one is entitled to receive compensa tion''. Therefore any such pay ment will be "sufficient cause for the revocation of permit or for feiture of all grazing preferen ces based upon the purchase of permitted stock" School Notes This is Patriotic Week in the Public Schools. By order of Provost Marshal Crowder. the teachers of Holbrook, in com mon with the others of the na tion, are charged with the duty of assisting the Draft Board and are working in relays every day to try to complete their work by the end of next week.
