forestry work Duhifj Some Studying Were Ml doing some stuayhiK these days younsj Baleh writes Tlie civil service examination for tlie fotest servico comes in March and is a paramount issue now with most us It is a seven hour examlnatioi nd on an average for the whole country only 20 per cent ever pass it Iour years of college gives one 15 points to start with Keedless to say none try it without the college train ing I suspect you wonder how the gov ernment employs forest service men Uven people in this country dont un derstand it In some cases Ill try to tell a little of the nature of the work The country is divided Into 8 forest districts Kach one oC these has a district supervisor and about S deputies In charge of different branches such as public relations limber sales accountancyand the like Then eacli district encompasses a cer tain number of national forests which average about a million acres There nre 143 oC these forests In the United States Each of these forests has a tion methods etc It seems impossible to better fire protection outside of piling and biirning brush but the largest number of fires In this region are caused by lightning They dont put out lightning rods but they have Invented instruments to test the In flammability of litter and the ground humidity etc Each region has a weather station which sends out dally reports to the supervisors offices Then If tlie forest station reports duff very dry relative humidity low and tho weather burcnu reports a storm moving toward him tho sunorvlsor calls up his rangers and they take their men ana tools and put them i where they can be moved in a hurry This Just shows how tho elements tan be beaten to a certain extent H doesnt remove the fire but the men are right there to put out the fkunes I before any damage is done Theru is one forest here the Coeur dAlene where the fire loss in he last years has dropped to about 1 per cent and this is right in tlie lightning region DR
