Jack Westland Egg Hunt To Be Held Favors Forest Bill iAt A bill now pending before con- gress, which is of especial inter- est to residents of the Northwest, is receiving the support of Con- gressman Jack Westland, ac- cording to a letter received by The Times from the Congress- man. The bill, H. R. 1972, would set aside 10% of all moneys received from the National Forests during each fiscal year, but not to ex- ceed $5,500,000 in any year, for Th ...... ~ w~,~r w-- h, ,~t th - v ..........

Camp Fire groups are making the baskets, and purchasing candy to be used for prizes. The Easter Egg hunt was insti- tuted by the Active Club here, but since that club passed out of existence, it has been necessary for others to undertake the work, and last year it was passed up. The hunt will be staged in To.r- race Park, and detailed plans will be announced later. Mrs. John Jensen, R. 5, Arling- ton, is in charge of the affair, which is for pre-school and and Second graders. Supervised by the guardians, the eggs will be hidden in the park by members of the Camp ~ire and Bluebird groups.

Communications, according to Mr. Jensen present a considerable problem, and it is complicated byA-tm, who rush phone to ask "Where's the fire.~" when the siren sounds. Apparently another weakness is that the use of the fire siren for the alert signal is not too well understood. While the firemen respond immediately, other per- sonr.el, accustomed to hearin~ the siren as a fire alarm, do not at first recognize it as an alert. though it is sounded in series o~ three blasts.
