No Greek Gods Dwell Here: Only Relentless Powers of Ice and Snow, Wind and Rain would be closed; all commercial lumbering on the outskirts of the park would be stopped; Spike Oakes would have his fire hat ready and his crews alert. When a fire breaks out, all the park's communication channels are held open; radio reports from mobile fire units pour into head quarters for integration; provisions and fire fighting equipment are dropped by plane to men working in the more inaccessible moun tain areas.

Luck and some relatively easy fire seasons have played their part in this record. Indians Inhabit Ocean Strip The Ocean Strip is a new addition to Olym pic National Park, acquired in January, 1953.
