Annual Forest Fire Loss
Estimated At 34 Million
Careless and criminal burning of
forests cast .southern" landowners
over 34 million dollars each year,
according to ree'ent figures com
piled by state foresters in coopera
tion .'with the U. S. forest service.
Based on estimated losses in 11
southern states over a five-year
period, the figures represent dain-
age" to young growth killed, loss of
volume in grown rces, and damage
to imprin einents. These figures in
." elude wnly "the value of timber as
a raw product and do not reflect
the loss of . wages, tax base, and
profits from manufacture.
"Farmers .and other landowners
. of the south can- ill afford this
heavy loss in forest resources. In
creased markets for wood products
and the great need for additional
cash crops on southern farms make
this annual destruction a direct
.loss to the farmer'. pockbooks,"
asserts Regional Forester Joseph
C. Kircher of the U. S forest
service. ... .
..,J!UuiUj for .this annual catastro
phe' is directed largely at two hu
, man .sources. First,, carelessness
with fire in the forest is credited
..with a. -heavy toll.' Wanning fires,
..matches,' cigarettes, and field clear
. ings are principally, responsible for
.'. However, the greatest menace to
southern forests is the irresponsible
woods burner. Laboring under the
delusion that woods burning is nec
essary to control insects' and raise
, cattle, this offender follows an age
old custom of "greening the
Woods". Qften not a landowner
. himself, he has little regard for the
. property of others.

"seem, the results obtained through

organized fire protection are indeed
encouraging. The area burned over
on forest land under state or fed
eral protection has been reduced
to an average of about two per
cent of the protected area. On un
protected areas as much as 50 to
75 per cent may be damaged each
year. Thus organized fire protec
tion is proving an important fac
tor in the battle being waged by
. Aroused public opinion is the most
needed weapon in combatting these
man-caused fires, for they can
only be prevented by curbing the
careless fire user and dealing firm
ly with the criminal fire setter.
Sound economic policy demands
that this power be exerted and
that the brand of the woods burn
er be extinguished. The south can
not afford to let the woods burner
retard' economic, progress.

ing these flowers indoor, is the
simplest way to grow the plants.
Bulbs that are easy to force are
Roman hyacinths, paper white nar
cissi, Dutch hyacinth, crocus, tu
lips, many of the old-fashioned
daffodils, freesias, and lily-of-the-valley.
To grow bulbs indoors Harris
says to select a container that
will hold water, pour in pebbles
until the container is about three
fourths full, place the bulbs in po
sition, and add, just enough water
to moisten the pebbles, but not
enough to touch the bulbs. Some
recommend placing the bulbs in a
cool, dark place until the roots are
about two inches long, but Harris
points out. that this makes the
stems too long for some flower
lover.. He warns that bulbs should not
be kept in a room that is too hot.
The temperature should range from
60 to 70 degrees, keeping the water
level just below , the bottom of the
bulb itself. "To keep a succession
of flowers, bulbs should be potted
at intervals from September
through January," Harris stated.
For outdoor plantings, the spec
ialist recommends' a shady posi
tion for winter-aconite,, snowdrop,
and Regal lillies; part shade for
snowflakes, . wood hyacinth, other
lillies, and daffodils and various
The colors of the various species

Lesson for October 15
Lesson subjecta and Scripture texts la
beled and copyrighted by International
Council of Religious Education: uaed by
THE TEMPTATION OF JESUS
LESSON TEXT Matthew 4:M1.
GOLDEN TEXT For we have not an
high priest which cannot be touched with
the feeling of our Infirmities), but was In
all points tempted like as we are, yet
without sin. Hebrews 4:13.
Temptation ia the common lot of
all mankind (I Cor. 10:13). The
strongest and most noble of men
re subject to it; angels were
tempted, and our scripture reveals
that even Jesus was tempted. We
recognize that Jesus was tempted
as the Messiah (vv. 3, 6) and as one
without sin (Heb. 4:15), but it is
also true that He was tempted in
all points as wa are, apart from sin,
and that we may learn from His
temptation how we may meet and
be the victors over temptation.
I. What la Temptation?
"Temptation is seduction to evil,
solicitation to wrong. It stands dis
tinguished from trial thus: trial
tests, seeks to discover the man's
moral qualities or character; but
temptation persuades to evil, de
ludes, that it may ruin. God tries;
Satan tempts" (A. M. Fairbairn).
Temptation is not sin, but yielding
to temptation is sin. Luther said,
"We cannot keep the birds from
flying over our heads, but we can
keep them from building nests in
our hair." Temptation comes from
within, that is, from our own lusts
(James 1:13, 14). Satan also tempts
us (Eph, 0:11). God may permit
temptation as a means of proving
our faith (Jamea 1:2, 3).
n. How Temptation Works.
It is significant that the tempta
tions of Jesus were along the three
fold line of the temptations of Adam
and Eve (Gen. 3:6) and the genera)
threefold temptation of all men,
namely, the lust of the flesh, the
pride of life, and the lust of the
eyes (I John 2:10). These three
temptations really exhaust Satan's
bag of tricks, but he can dress up
these three " fundamental . tempta
tions with almost endless variety.
1. By appealing to the flesh (w.
2, 3). He observes the normal ap
petites and desires of a man's body,
excites them to a high degree, and
then suggests an improper method
of satisfying them. Hunger ia nor
mal and a sign of good health.
Jesus had fasted forty days and
Satan took advantage of that fact to
suggest the use of His divine power
to satisfy His hunger. This would
involve a denial of His entire mis
sion on earth, namely, the redemp
tion of man by divine person who
had become a real man.
2. By appealing to pride (w. S.
0). Satan misapplied Scripture to
tempt Jesus to presumption on the
assumption that He was exercising
faith. God had promised to keep
Him "in all his ways" (Pi. 91:11).
To cast himself down from the tem
ple was not one of the ways in
which Christ was called to walk.
Satan comes to us with the same
kind of temptation. If He cannot
get us to forsake faith, he tempts
us to become fanatic and to proudly
substitute presumption for faith.
3. By appealing to the eyes (w.
8, 9). By showing Christ the king
doms of the world and offering them
to Him by the short-cut of a brief
act of worship rather than by the
way of the cross, Satan tempted
Him again. Here the devil showed
his true desire that man should wor
ship him rather than God.
III. How to Meet Temptation (vv.
4, L 10).
1. By the right use of Scripture.
If Jesus needed that weapon, how
can we do without it? How can wo
use Scripture if we do not study it i
and hide it in our hearts? 1
2. By dependence on God. Every
Scripture used by Jesus honored
God. We cannot fight Satan In our
own strength. To attempt to do so
is to fail utterly. The real victory
lor the Christian Is to bring Satan
back to the cross where Christ won
a decisive victory over him.
3. By denouncing Satan. Jesus
sent him on his way. We may do
the same in Jesus' name. It is al
ways a serious error to try to argue
with Satan or to engage In any dis
cussion with him. Let us meet him
with Scripture and wlih a "Get the
hence." . .
IV. The Result.
Satan left and angels came to
minister to Christ The overcom
ing of temptation results in peace,
victory, ana blessing. This is ever
so in the life of the believer.' Temp
tation overcome makes us stronger
to meet the next temptation, and
also enables us to help our weaker
Framing Our Lives
Religion does not consist In the
performance of certain ceremonial
acts at specified times, outside
which acts and times it has no
place: but consists In framing our
whole life, and all our acta, upon a
distinct view of our position as cre
ated beings, charged by the fact of
our creation, with duties both to our
fellow creatures and to our Creator.
Erosion Is Stopped
Use of strips of legumes in crop
rotations in combining with terraces
to solve soil erosion problems on
scores of North Carolina farms
says E. B. Garrett of State col
lege, coordinator for the soil con
servation service. "We have in our
files a number of statements from
SCS cooperators which extol the
benefits of strip-cropping,'' Gar
He quoted M. C. Lassiter, a
farmer in the erosion control dem
onstration area near High Point,
as follows: "For yeans I had ob
served soil piling up higher and
higher at the bottom of one of my
fields, where I placed obstructions
in a natural draw. Meanwhile, the
damage from erosion elsewhere in
the field became more and more
apparent, both in the condition of.
the land and in decreasing1 crop
. "Strip cropping made it possible
for me to smooth out washes in
this field and to prevent further
erosion. Frankly, there is nothing
like this type of farming," Mr.
"I can now find little evidence
of erosion. The soil beds in the
lower part of the field have ceas
ed to grow and there is much less
water flowing off the field.
"The reason for this is that a
rotation by strips of clover, lespe-
deza, and corn, also with terraces,
holds the moisture, soil, and fer
tilizers up where they are needed.
The use of strips of legumes in my
rotations has greatly improved the
soil during the past five years, and
the practice of strip-cropping has
been beneficial in every respect. I
intend to continue the practice."
