M. Foreman, county fire ward en, reported today. According to figures released by the North Carolina Forest service, campers apd hunters started 34 of the 80 forest fires occurring on state-protected land. Smokers were responsible for 17 other fires, ac cording to the report. Nine-tenths of this burned-over area has been in district 4, of which Carteret county is a part, but the biggest occurred in Hyde county. The only fire in Carteret county in October was at Back creek in the vicinity of Open Grounds. Ap proximately 40 acres burned then, according to Mr. Foreman. Total damage to forest land throughout the state amounted to $10,426. District Forester R. C. Winkworth, New Bern, pointed out, however, that this does not take into consideration the game destroyed, he said. Mr. Foreman urges all Carteret county hunters to use extreme care this season while in, the woods. "If everyone will do his part to prevent forest fires by breaking all matches before throw ing them away, crushing cigarettel stubs, and making sure fires are dead, careless destruction ol wild game and the forest can be avoided," he commented.
