Di E ,.ork According to the Lincoln Bulletin, the Salazar Cnnyon Road which is being constructed under the direction of Forest Examiner H. D, Barrall is neal'ing completion, This road is both a Forest and Comaiunity development project. Its major industrial use will come from wood deliveries to the towM of Lincoln and to the U, S. Marinc Hospital at Fort Stanton. It will also facilitate the delivery of form produce to those points and to C.pitan l2kSiTrii po d ion: Investigations conducted by the Cloquet Experiment Station, on thu method of reproduction of Black Spruce, reveal the fact that this tree reproduces almost entirely from layering. The process in as iollows: A lov er branch of an old tree becomes covered with sphagnum moss, which grows on the forest floor, and soon adventitious buds are formed. One of the buds sends a shoot abovoe the ground and this becomes a new tree while the remaining buds develop into roots. These roots supply the new troo with food and ultimately the branch from which they sprang will decay and the new tree must then depend solely on its ovn roots for o:istonco. As now trees send out branches the cycles will be repeated and thus the Black Spruce will continue to possess the swamp, Black Spruce occurs in dense stands in the swamps of the Lake States and Canada. Jild DoPs: Last smmor one of the boys on the Blaek Range Crest trail crew had his female Airdale in ca.mp, which uated with a Police dog. Her owner was called on to augment th protective force at Dianond Peak and when work was over he returned home with the Airdalo for only a short time before going to Hurley to sock work. The Aird'le evidently throught he had returned to Diamond ecak and she went there to find him. ,;hile there she gave birth to nine puppies, according to Hugh Hedge of the Diamond Bar ranch, although one died shortly after birth as it uses foumd in the don The result was as usual. A mother with eight pu,)pies to feed must nJvcU something to cat. She natural- ly did whnt she knew to be wrong - calf killing..- and thus evaded man at every turn. Since her pup-ies have become larger their rango of territory is widen- ing. Their tracks hve boon seen seven miles down on either side of the Black Range and, unless already captured, hunter In-in, of the Biological Survey is having his hands full, At last reports, 1r. Hedge said it was nearly aim- possible to trap or to approach close cnough to shoot these dogs,(Gila :1cnster) Field Peeler (Phoonix); Kerr, Cooperrider (Gila) joaovo - Cheney. .Actjn Marsh.
