'U"'Students Fight Fires
By RUPERT CUTLER
Smokejumpers are paratroopers
of peace, fighting on the flaming
battle lines of forest fires.
Four students, Bob Spinde, '54
NR, Billy Buck, '54NR, Ed Heik-
kenen, '56NR, and Bob Clifford,
NR, spent their summer vacation
at this hazardous occupation.

WORKING FOR the U.S. For-
est Service; the four men made a
total of 50 jumps from high-fly-
ing tri-motor airplanes into the
remote and almost inaccessible
forests of the Rocky Mountains
and the Cascades of the Pacific
The smokejumping service
was organized in 1940 on an ex-
perimental basis. In 1947, men
began to be trained and station-
ed at five bases: Caves Junction,
Ore.; McCall, Idaho; Winthrop,
Wash.; Missoula, Mont.; and
Idaho City, Idaho.
Smokejumpers are dropped on
fires that are usually no larger
than 10 acres. However, Spinde,
working out of McCall, was on a
500-acre Mosquito Springs fire in
Idaho. For 13 days he was with-
Student health last month was'
reported to be good, and much the
same as for the month of Novem-
ber last year, according to a recent
Health Service report.
This year, general influenza in-
jections for all students on cam-
pus were discontinued, because
their value in past years was nev-
er conclusively decided.
Accidents this year appear to
be on the increase. A total of 4251
student injuries have been record-
ed since October.

or a change of socks.
BUCK, STATIONED at Caves
Junction, made three fire jumps
and Heikkenen and Clifford, bas-
ed at Idaho City, counted 15
jumps between them. The men
are flown into the fires but must
hike back to civilization when
they are sure the fire is out.
Smokejumpers help protect 20,-
000,000 acres of roadless moun-
tain forest where 70-90 per cent
of the fires are caused by light-
ning, in contrast to the national
total where 93 per cent of forest
fires are caused by man.
Prior to the organization of the
smokejumpers, as many as 300,000
forested acres burned a year.
Since their inception, the average
annual burn on the National For-
ests has been reduced to less than

"POEM occasioned by the most
shocking and cruel murder . . .,"
reads the headline of a broadside
now on exhibit along with other
"Assortments of American Crime"

AN. EXAMPLE currently being
shown at the library concerns the
tragedy of a husband who killed
his family and then committed su-
icide in Connecticut in 1782. The
sheet is crudely illustrated with
six coffins and a skull and cross-
bones and a black "mourning bor-
der" runs about the sheet. "I re-
alize it isn't exactly appropos dur-
ing the Christmas season," How-

some ground for optimism,"
Peckham commented. "For one
thing you will see no new type

The assortment, on exhibit un-
til about March 1, also includes
the original letter sent by Bene-
dict Arnold to the British head-
quarters offering to surrender
WestPoint and his troops for 20,-
000 pounds of sterling. (That sum
would be worth about one-half
million dollars today.) The letter
is coded to a dictionary with num-
bers in series of threes. The first
number is the page in the dic-
tionary, the second the column
and the third the number of lines
from the top of the dictionary
