Forestry Division of the C S. Dep
artment of Agriculture to prevent
forest fires is being stepped up. . .
This year an effort is being made

ing an appeal by Smokey Bear,
otiicial symbol of the fire prevent'
tifin campaign, to be displayed to

Million Dojlar Dope
Ring Smashed in IIC
"According to news reports federal
and state agents last week broke
up a million-dollar a year narcotics
ring operating between Baltimore
Washington and North Carolina.
' Julius Eisenberg, reportedly the
top narcotic violator in the- Baltimore-Washington
area, was arrested
in Reidsville as he drove into North
- James Powell, director of SBI,
said- Eisehberg had heroin valued
at $25,000 retail and was on his way
to -deliver the drug to Clay Mar
lette of Burlington.
Marlette, described as one of the
top narcotic violators in North
Carolina, along with his lieutenant
James C. Creeck, was alreday in
custody in Burlington.
. By the arrest of the trio the in
vestigation . authorities came into
possession of about 20 ounces of

rfs District 5
to Clinton Davis, Director of Forest
Fire Prevention for fhe Forestry
Division.it was not adopted by the
Forestry Division as a central fig
ure until 1947, and has been used
extensively every since.
There was an average of 210,000
forest fires annually prior to the
inauguration of the Smokey Bear
Since then the number has been
reduced to an average of 185,000,
even though thousands of additional
people visit forest and woodland
areas every year for picnics, camp
ing, hunting, and fishing expedi
tions. If it were not for the extensive
fire prevention program, of which
the Smokey Bear symbol is the
central figure, Davis estimates the
number of fires would be running
at the rate of between 300,000 and
350,000 annually because of increas
ed use of forest areas, because fires
caused by people run in direct
proportion to the forest use by
the. public, we are grateful for as
widespread support as possible to
bring home the need for keeping
down the huge annual loss of our
natural resources caused by fires
