Foster, secre- tary of the Arlington Commercial Club of Arlington, Washington, protesting against star route mail service from Arlington to Dar- rington, Washington. After an investigation by a rep- resentative of the Department it was recommended that the rural route from Oso, Washington be transferred to the office of Dar- rington, Washington. to the fact that the route from Oso duplicated rural route No. 3 from Arlington 5.3 miles and re- trace, as well as the carrier on route from Arlington traveling to the Oso post office. Star rout No. 71375 Darrington to Arling- ton was also reported as duplicat- ing with rural delivery service for approximately 22 miles. For the purpose of eliminating tiis duplication an advertisement was issued for a star route from Darrington to Arlington 28 miles and back six times a week, the cmtractor to be required in ad- dition to usual box delivery and coilection service, to sell stamp supplies, deliver registered mat- ter, etc., the date of expiration be- ing December 8, 1925.

The proposed transfer of route from Oso to Darrington which is included 'in the report of the in- spector will also have consider- ation after December 8.

Far from forbidding the practice, they believe that the providing of this central symbol of the child's Christmas should be encouraged, under praper reg- zlation. "Conservation is wise use," said District Forester C. M. Granger, in commenting on this question. "Forest management grows suc- cessive crops of trees on the same land. I-f possible these tree crops should be used and not allowed to grow old, die, and rot." One of the important require- ments of forestry is the practice known as "improvement thinning" according to Mr. Granger. Nature starts six or eight trees in the forest for every one that survives. It is held to be good practice to from thickets, to give the hardier cut out the inferior seedlings trees a chance. For Christmas trees of average size in this re- gion, it is well not to thin to a greater distance than eight feet between trees. "Trees cut for improvement thinning are seldom symmetrica unless only the top of the tree is used," said Mr. Granger. "It is the demand for symmetrical trees which causes much of the abuse. Only the best of trees in open stands, or the tops of 20 or 30 year old trees are cut. If we could popularize the slightly misshapen Christmas tree, and create a de- mand for trees cut under proper forestry methods, it would do much to correct this abuse." The forest service believes that by proper cutting a tree could be provided for every family in Am- erica, without,,harming the future forest crop. They also point out that one forest fire often de- stroys more young trees than the entire annual Christmas tree harvest, and urge that those who are interested in forest conser- vation shoul ddevote their ener- MARK IT ON YOUR OALEZTDAR WEDNESDAY, DEC. 9TH RU RAL DAY AT EVERETT On account of the holiday rush later in tim mod;h the merchants of Everett," de- cided that Rural Day this month must be hehl early.
