Fire! Ding-dong, ding-dong!:
And fire extinguishers and the
bucket brigade .were rushed, to , y
' the "recxeation hall .uuoa'i 4vl'5,' Y
Sunday afternoon, March 18, .when
the floor under the' fireplace
started to smoke. .
TJhen the flooring was ripped out in front of the hearth,
and air got to the charred timbers, flames shot out, and even
more smoke added to the dimness
in the recreation hall.
Extinguishers were applied,
and water used, and the fire was
soon under control without much
damage being done except the ripping up of the flooring to get
at the source of the smoke."
It seems that excess fire-:
place heat through.the hearth
had dried and charred the timbers under it till, they were.
ready to burst into flames at
the admission of air.
Pruefert; and Roy Miller did
valiant work, as did the bucket
brigade. The crowd soon dispersed when it was seen, that no'
more excitement was to be had.

pany 1783a It was first located an Highway 61-, 16. miles from ,
Big ^allsi The latter part of
October the Company' moved to the -
present location on Deer Lake
in the George TaShin?ton Nem-
orial State Forest. Since then
the enrollees not only-have shown
great adaptability to the isolation -of the camp but have, produced far reaching results in
carrying out the Forestry fork
Program."~ cksoTTT "';_" ". '
Work on ■•-1 ----- •'ent projects has beel^XAWrmad. in a
systematic manner. Areas around
the .camp have,.been cleared to
beautify-the.campsite and are-
vent fires. The road riaht of
ways have been relieved of. brush
and show.;- Slash and debris have
been removed from the roadsides
to reduce the fire hazard and
improve the' highways. Cultural
work, such as thihnino: and releasing, has been done on numerous acre's of state land "making timber" that will be available in 30 or 40 years. A telephone connection'has' been made
with the Bear River line which
will bring the camp in closer
touch with the outside world.
A'great deal of time has '
been devoted to logging operations, cutting of telephone
poles, running of lines, graveling of road, construction
of;necessary buildings, estimation of timber, Blister Rust
control, and mapping and reconnaissance. These and other projects have, greatly improved the
timber stands in the Area and
made, "the grass stow greener,
the air seem cleaner, where the
C. C. C boys of Company 1763
held sway." •
