The battle was fought with .wo-by-fours and clubs Tuesday at Four Corners, a highway in- ersection in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest 225 miles north of San Francisco.

When 30 Shasta County iff's deputies and nine U.S. mar- shals arrived to take down the quonset but, they found an In- dian with a chain saw cutting down a big ponderosa federal offence in a national timber preserve.

After the battle, some 50 for- est service workers moved in with crowbars and sledgeham- mers and dismantled the quon- set hut..
