An examination for forest ranger will be held on October 27, in twenty-six different states, according to word just received by district forester C.M. Granger at Portland. Entrance Salary for forest ranger in the U.S. forest service is $1500 in the United States, and $1900 in Alaska. Outside of the salary the government allows a mileage on privately-owned automobiles when used on official business, and actual expenses when absent on official duty from official headquarters.
Owing to the large number of accidents reported throughout the state during the first half of the deer season, Warden E.F. Averill has requested his deputies to call upon any person responsible for such accidents and advise them that Chapter 70, Laws of 1923, forbids any such person to bear arms within this state hereafter. He holds that the man who mistakes another for a deer and shoots him should be prosecuted for manslaughter.
