Berry, Bingen -- Bernard Pollard, White Salmon Ediiors and Publishers Roseburg, Ore. -- Enclosed is a p~cture (from the daily News- Review, Jan 7) of a former White Salmon ,boy, Oscar Wallace.

Coluv~bi.a I~!gh has graduated some good boys but none finer than the ~Wallace `brothers. (Many readers will recall that Charles Dondero w~-once a White Salmon teacher.) -- ao NUN SO -- Hood Ibiver -- In regards to the statement that State Fire War. den Driver made in your paper, January 3, 1957 I would like to add my few words in regards to Christmas tree fanning. I am sure that almost every. cne in the Snowden area knows me. I have been trying to buy Christmas trees for over four, yeats. In this area I ha~e always found enou,gh for my needs, but I'll assure everyone that R has cost me more than a cent a tree. I have advertised, talked and preached t~e farming ,in this area since the first time came here. As we all kno~v there has to he some sure income in amy com- munity to make it prosperotm. Christmas trees in this country is a sure thing. The area Is right for our needs im the wholesale and retail of Christmas trees. There is not another place in the state of Washington where we ca,~ find the red fir and white ell this quality. I have for the last three years, tried to t~av~ my trees cut by lo- cal people, but have ~ad no suc. 4ces.s In this past season I have A%und that 3 or 4 men have start. ed tree farming. These men have started sornethL~g that I hope ~Ill interest other people. In this way they~ can get started and underway to a big future in th, is industry. This area has been :abused as far as the .tree farm :goes. Just think, let's say you ~ave 80 acres. In 10 years you could have 'a,n income from 5 to 10 thousand a year. So start now a~d get together, form an assoc- iation, and. help one another. Be, for you know it the Snowden area will be the Christmas tree producing eapHal of Washing. ton. I would like to be your first customer and hope I can buy them all. ~I offer my help to anyone that would like to .know anytbAng about planting, pruning or cut- ting Christmas trees. I will be glad to tell them what I know about Christmas tree farming as long as I am here. Bob Sargent -- 30 S~N 30 -- Reaeler Requests Further Details Last week's SUN story about drivers who tail fire trucks too closely or blocade access to ~ural blazes~ didn't go far enough for Matt Bates, Bin,gen ,insurance- ma~, who sometimes substitutes for Bingen's night marshal. '~everM times when I had the police siren wide open try. ln~ to souud down a speeder ttp ahead, the cars !between us kept right on going," says Matt who thinks it timely the SUN pu,b- Hshes the gist of two pertinent motorwelvicle laws: 1. On the wa~] to a fire, it is unlawful to follow any fire ap- paratus closer tl~aaa 500 feet or to i approach or park within 200 feet iof a stopped fire vehicle. 2. Upon hearing or seeing any emergency vehicle approachln,g, every other car must immedda- tely pull to the far right side of th~ road and stop deadstill until the fire truck, police car or am. bulance has passed. In comply. ing with this law, each driver must of course signal his in- tention, Matt points out. -- 30 SUN 30 -- STRIKE ,SETTLED MINUS IKE'S AID Representatives of the SP&S railroad and the Brotherhood of Locom(fvive Engineers met ln~ Portland Th:ursday, Jan. 10 and settled their differences which precipitated a strik~ during the first week of Deee~r~er.
