The club is in sound financial status. Discussion on the dues structure ended with $5.00 for single members, $7.00 for family plans and $2.00 for juveniles 12 to 16 years. This increase was' to coin- cide with the increase of per capita from the N.H.S.A. It was reported that 35,000 machines were registered last year in New Hampshire and N.H.S.A. has only 6,000 members; in other words, we had better do some selling as those 29,000 nonmembers are riding our trails free. The state trail system is gaining slowly, with the ITT (Intertown Trail System) also pushing the north-south, and east-west system. The north- south system will be num- bered with odd numbers and the east-west with even numbers. The round tin can painted markers seem to be the most popular and recognizable. A new state secretary will be taking over July 1, and it is' hoped that this year the Sno- Traveler will get sent to the members in a more reliable fashion. It was also thought a new printer might be doing the work. George DeForrest, Lewis Bancroft and Tess Bushaw to investigate more fully this ITT system. The club had two civic duties the last two weeks, they assisted with the Bike-A-Thon and also had a bike safety session at the school. The results of the Bike-A-Thon have not yet been completed. The N.H.S.A. this year turned a profit on their end of the Easter Seal Ride-in where previously it had cost money. This is good. Elmer Heath reported that the NHSA might be being shuffled between the DRED and Fish and Game Depar- tment. It is hoped we can come under only one state department as this costs us 15 percent to each for expenses.

Gertrude Brooks also attended. Lt. Col. Bruce Smith, stationed at Heidelberg, Germany, paid a surprise visit to his parents, Laurence and Eola Smith, on May 21 and 22. Guests at Miriam Lane's over the weekend were two daughters, Theda Wright of Millbury, Mass., and Pearl Reynolds of Littleton, N.H., and her brother Chet Sanborn and his daughter Edith and friend from Hopedale, Mass.

Xatharine Blaisde, 787-6315 Eola and Polly Smith, Carrie Warren Fire Wardens Hold Training Session in Warren The State Fire Wardens and Deputies from this section held a training session on map reading and compass work on Ore Hill Saturday. The meeting was quite successful except one ranger and one deputy came up missing. After due time, both were found, they knew where they were, but the rest of the crew did not. The group were divided into crews and given a certain map reading or location on Ore Hill. They were then tran- sported in different spots to locate their positions and start for the designated place on Ore Hill where a fire was supposedly burning. They advanced from different parts of the hill. It was a very good exercise and instructive on a beautiful May Mternnon. The flies were not too difficult to get along with but the traveling quite rough in places. The group were addressed by Jack Sargent head of the service from Concord at the start. Ranger John Ricard of Canaan of this district (No. 4) had charge of the practice. He was assisted by Ranger Swed Carlson of Moultonboro, Ranger Clark and a new member from the seacoast area, Bob Burton of Concord, training instructor, and Ranger Grimes the cook. The session started at the Town Hall on 1:00 p.m. and ended there about 6:00 p.m. after all had been partaking of baked beans and hot dogs. It was good to find out thatit looks like the Fire Towers in the State will be retained this year. It was thought for a while funds would not be available to man them. These towers are a vital link for communication with planes when they are flying fire patrol in the most hazardous dry weather. About 60 State personnel, wardens and deputies took part in the practice. Good prevention saves lumber, lives and money. Last year, the state had 19 forest fires which burned only 16 acres. Lodge News Moosehillock Lodge 63 F&A.M. held a regular meeting in the Temple Thursday evening. Acting W.M. Ed Cormiea held the East; Bro. Everett W.

The club is in sound financial status. Discussion on the dues structure ended with $5.00 for single members, $7.00 for family plans and $2.00 for juveniles 12 to 16 years. This increase was' to coin- cide with the increase of per capita from the N.H.S.A. It was reported that 35,000 machines were registered last year in New Hampshire and N.H.S.A. has only 6,000 members; in other words, we had better do some selling as those 29,000 nonmembers are riding our trails free. The state trail system is gaining slowly, with the ITT (Intertown Trail System) also pushing the north-south, and east-west system. The north- south system will be num- bered with odd numbers and the east-west with even numbers. The round tin can painted markers seem to be the most popular and recognizable. A new state secretary will be taking over July 1, and it is' hoped that this year the Sno- Traveler will get sent to the members in a more reliable fashion. It was also thought a new printer might be doing the work. George DeForrest, Lewis Bancroft and Tess Bushaw to investigate more fully this ITT system. The club had two civic duties the last two weeks, they assisted with the Bike-A-Thon and also had a bike safety session at the school. The results of the Bike-A-Thon have not yet been completed. The N.H.S.A. this year turned a profit on their end of the Easter Seal Ride-in where previously it had cost money. This is good. Elmer Heath reported that the NHSA might be being shuffled between the DRED and Fish and Game Depar- tment. It is hoped we can come under only one state department as this costs us 15 percent to each for expenses.

The meeting was quite successful except one ranger and one deputy came up missing. After due time, both were found, they knew where they were, but the rest of the crew did not. The group were divided into crews and given a certain map reading or location on Ore Hill. They were then tran- sported in different spots to locate their positions and start for the designated place on Ore Hill where a fire was supposedly burning. They advanced from different parts of the hill. It was a very good exercise and instructive on a beautiful May Mternnon. The flies were not too difficult to get along with but the traveling quite rough in places. The group were addressed by Jack Sargent head of the service from Concord at the start. Ranger John Ricard of Canaan of this district (No. 4) had charge of the practice. He was assisted by Ranger Swed Carlson of Moultonboro, Ranger Clark and a new member from the seacoast area, Bob Burton of Concord, training instructor, and Ranger Grimes the cook. The session started at the Town Hall on 1:00 p.m. and ended there about 6:00 p.m. after all had been partaking of baked beans and hot dogs. It was good to find out thatit looks like the Fire Towers in the State will be retained this year. It was thought for a while funds would not be available to man them. These towers are a vital link for communication with planes when they are flying fire patrol in the most hazardous dry weather. About 60 State personnel, wardens and deputies took part in the practice. Good prevention saves lumber, lives and money. Last year, the state had 19 forest fires which burned only 16 acres. Lodge News Moosehillock Lodge 63 F&A.M. held a regular meeting in the Temple Thursday evening. Acting W.M. Ed Cormiea held the East; Bro. Everett W.
