Coast Section Likely to Have Floods

Perry Hill, United States forest ranger, who has returned from the section down the coast where the recent great fires have prevailed, has expressed the opinion that a portion of the Big Sur waterehed was so badly devastated in the country south of Carmel that that section will suffer considerably in the event of a severe winter. The fires in the Cone Peak and Carmel watershed sections south of here have been completely extinguished. In fact, the main efforts of the fire fighters were centered upon preventing the burning of the Carmel watershed, and this was accomplished.
