Having read letters from Mrs. Fern Enke to Mr.Arthur Godfrey and getting such a kick out of them thot Obsidian members and others might enjoy them too. Polly Tickle.
Mr. Arthur Godfrey,
C/o C.B.S. Radio,
New York, N. Y.
Dear Mr, Godfrey:
We hear your program on Saturdays over Radio Station KINS, Eureka,and on February 16 I was pretty disturbed by your remarks about the Redwoods......remarks that would lead your listeners to believe that these are all being cut by the loggers and there will just not be any redwoods left.
First of all, I would like to ask..Have you ever been out to the Redwoods Empire?
If not, I would like to extend an invitation to you to come and see for your self what a tremendous job is being done of preserving these trees. I will warrant you, you could walk for the rest of your life thru forests of oldgrowth Redwoods & you would not, in that time be able to see all of the trees under preservation.
The companies who do log these trees do so with the future in mind, and their programs of reforestation and regrowth are something that you should come out and take a look at before being concerned about all the trees being cut. On top of their logging programs, they set aside great tracts of old growth trees and make them available to the State for parks.
Everyone out here in the land of the big trees invites you to comeand see our beautiful country....we'll show you around and
we are sure you will return to your network with a much different story.
Former Board Member Redwood Region Conservation Council.
(Redwood Region Conservation_ Council was organized by the Logging and Lumber Co.s to counteract the conservationists. P.T.)
the other letters will follow from time to time as space permits.
BUILDING & GROUNDS
Clarence Landes is still spending a lot of time at one thing and another at the Lodge. His la test is an atempt to slow down the growth of grass and such in the individual parking spaces among the trees. He has sprayed,with help, the parking spaces with a solution to do this. Also has sprayed the paths leading from these areas leading to the Lodge.
Robert Harlan mowed all the paring lots and other areas with his power riding mower.
Clarence had a group of 18 up there the day before annual meeting cleaning up the place. They went over the entire building (inside that is) with brooms,vacuum cleanerssweepers and mops. Ceilings, walls and the floors were all gone over.
Those who took part besides Clarence; Frank & Wilma Moore, John, Lenore, Steve & Kevin McManigal, Dick & Rose Marie Moffitt, Dorothy & Bob Medill, Nell Harmon, Wes Prouty, Al Lynch, Rich Temple, Clarence Johnson, Lois Schreiner, Don Payne. If I have left anyone out I will sure hear about it. That is one of the blessings of being Editor.

This is the glacial scree flat that lies between Batchlor and Broken Top. Seems a sheepherder got caught here with his sheep by deep snows and had to spend the winter here. He was a German. so the name Dutchman.
