June 17, 1930: "Active preparations for the summer fire season on the Umpqua national forest are now being made. H.P.

Others will go to their stations between the present time and the first of July." (Roseburg News-Review)
September 5, 1931: "H.P. Looney, forest service lookout at Red Mountain, reported today the unusual occurrence of seeing a family of wolves, a male and female and five half grown pups. Hunters say that it is very unusual to see a wolf in the woods, as they usually are able to avoid being seen, unless cornered by dags. He believes that the pups were being taught to hunt, judging from the actions of the group. They spent considerable time on the divide, and he was able to reach the lookout station and procure a gun, with which he killed the male and one of the pups." (Roseburg News-Review)
