and interesting tournament and all
men and ladies of not only Frank
lin, but the surrounding towns, are
invited to attend and take part
whether they are members of the
cltfb or not.
Each man will have a lady as
signed to him as a partner and it
will be up to the men to do all the
driving and approaching and make
all shots necessary to "put the ball
on the green and from .then until
it finally reposes in the cup 'it will
be up to the ladies. In other words,
the men . will do the heavy work
while the fair, sex look on with
admiring eye, but when the delicate
nnH final touch of nutting is re-'
quired, the ladies will step up and
make their presence felt with, a
delicate twist of the wrist.
Each man will be given a handi
cap, thus making an equal chance
fnr Mfh counle to win. The men

their eating tobacco at home and
to refrain from over' indulgence of
adjectives if they miss their ap

Decrease on Forest Lands
In North Carolina
Recent rains and better coopera
tion of the public have been largely
responsible for the decrease of
forest fires on national forest lands
in North Carolina during the past
several months, as compared, with
the same period of last - year, it
was pointed out by Joseph C. Kir
cher, regional -forester, U. S. forest
service. , .
While the forest service official
said that weather conditions and
improved methods and organization
are partly responsible for this de-
crease in forest fires, he was em
phatic in declaring that public opin
ion is turning more strongly than
ever before in favor of forest
"The increasing demand for all
forest products, such as pulpwood,
sawtimber, . poles and piling, is im
pressing the public with the fact
that our forests are valuable as
sets. The development of camp
sites, picnic areas, and our fish
and game restocking program, have
.made the people see our forests
mean recreation and pleasure in ad
dition to timber and watershed pro
tection," Kircher said.
On all national forest lands, areas
for recreational uses have been de
veloped during the last several
years. This work has given the
public a closer connection with the
ioresis,. anu m return wie piuiaii

Efficiency of the program also
has been increased through con
struction of additional fire towers
and telephone lines in national for
ests, as well as on state and, pri
vate lands. This work is carried out
through the cooperative efforts of
all federal, state and private agen
cies engaged in forest fire control
"Public cooperation with these
various agencies in the protection
of our forest resources will mean
more health and wealth for the
people of North Carolina," said for
