% orces Through the ages man has learned to df'fi&tute. This accommodation operates without hitch br hesitation forthe most partpand it is natural that Man comes to feel he is the ifndisputed masterof his destiny; There are times, \ Howevef»v^l#f»Sure asserts herself with such violehpe that, forthe moj[iertt 3 aiTBecOmes a mei’e observer of, rather than the master of the sityation.Such outbursts of. nature have occurred three times in this section in the recent past, ,x fiire wrought considerable havoc in Proudfit hail in Salem recently when it raged uncontrolled^ for. some time. Eventually the flames were quelled, but until the firemen assembled and their equipment was marshalled, the fire displayed the ugly force it is. Just a week ago nature showed another unpleasant face. A spell of warmer weather with shifting masses of ice caused flooding conditions. Man coped with the situation after it had developed .^As the flood waters rose, however, he was helpless to do anything to stay them. Nature showed yet another of her many fpces Monday when she unleashed a blizzard on this section. As traffic ground to-a crawl, ifndta complete halt, the pattern of life wasinterrupted~ for a time. Then, as the winds decreased nature cooperated with man’s efforts to movefhe snow in such a way that traffic could be maintained. Elsewhere, nature performs even more violently than she usually does in this section of. the world; There are volcanic eruptions and - 7 - earthquakes, famines and tidal waves, major floods and other catastrophic occurrences which devastate thousands of square miles of land and claim millions of lives. — * Our fire and flood and blizzard are mlnoF •' manifestations of the forces of nature, and we may be thankful that they are. Nevertheless, they are- awesome and fearsome as they transpire, and they serve to remind us that man is a pretty puny being ‘ when nature is in a violent mood. ! - Salem St. Paul’s Episcopal Rev.

The ’chuck knew at once that he had emerged into unspringlike conditions , which beset him ’from every side, so wisely retraced his steps to the comforts he had left ; below ground, This action by the lowly beast, which is not credited with a great reservoir of intelligence, is interpreted by man, who is the most satient of all beings, to prognosti­ cate the continuance of winter for another six weeks. Had he not seen his shadow, tradition says, spring would now be at hand and the ’chuck would have stayed up and set out to forage for tasty shoots of clover, alfalfa and other tender greens. Really! Not even the most demented of dim-witted groundhogs would hope to find evea a smidgin of edible grasses in these parts on February 2. He did checi the weather Monday, iiowever, the old wives’ tafce would have us believe, and because he saw his shadow, winter will go on for another 42 days. It would be rather unusual Lf it didn’t. In anotJher six weeks we will be in the second week of March*, and a couple weeks short of the vernal equinox. \Yes the ground­ hog was right in going back to bed. Winter will continue to hold us in its icy grasp for six weeks — and then some! We thought for a moment Monday that our neighbors. had let their cows out'for a breath of wintry air, A cowbird was , in the back yard, but when we failed to see'any cows we deduced the bird was seeKing seeds at the feeders. He Was the first of the season. Another first the same day was a redpoll. : '' Since November we have fed bluejays, juncos, goldfinches,, tree spar­ rows, evening grosbeak’s^ ses? TJu cardinals, starlings, house sparrows and pine siskins. These are all birds which like sunflower seeds, as that is the only seed feed we provide. We have just put out the last of a 50-pound bag. Starlings, nuthatches and chickadees vary their diet by \ eating scraps of suet \now and then. They share it with downy and hairy woodpeckers, daily visitors. Squirrels should be added to the list of sunflower seed eaters. We have had as many as six of them competing for feed with the birds. We have reduced the number of squirrel freeloaders, how­ ever, by installing a baffle on the pole to which the feeder is attached. This prevents access to the feeder by climbing the pole. One squirrel, more asture than the others (and sharper than any groundhog), refused to be baffled. He climbed a nearby smoke tree, and by a process of trial and error found the branch from which he could jump about six feet to the feeder. We do not be­ grudge him his daily ration of seeds. • % 4 FIFTY YEARS AGO February 10; 1926 The bo>ard of education adopted a resolution call­ ing for a special school district meeting to vote on a proposed bond issue of $195,000 to erect a new building to replace the one .burned in December. A delegation of citizens appeared before the vil­ lage boar=d/equesting that the streets be kept plowed Attt • for the benefit of automobElists. ~'ffffinTYEA3fS~A~GO February 6 , 1946 - — Members of the Ideal Union of District 50, United Mine Workers, mho \were employed at the Stevens and Thompson Paper company giant Hire, had met the prev­ ious Sunday at Odd Fellows hall and auth­ orized thse executive com­ mittee of the union to call a work stoppage at the mill if necessary to en­ force union demands.

TWENTY YEARS AGO_ February 8, 1956 Salk polio vaccine which had been given to children in certain age groups at school clinics for several months, was now avail­ able in small quanities to physicians to administer to their patients in the six month-fourteen year age group. The M ary McClellan hospital in Cambridge, located on a hilltop and surrounded by pine trees, was planning to remove a number of the pines around the hospital. The large pmes rieaTtfte brOw of the hill were decayed and would fall if they were not taken down, foresters had advised the hospital. Careless parking and wandering dogs were proving troublesome problems to Chief of Police Russell Davies. With a series of snow storms, automobiles parked on the street had caused considerable delay in the cleaning work of the department of public works. Deaths: Fayette C. Bar­ ber, 56,Salem; Miss Alice <J. Roberson, 84, Green­ wich\; William Charaker, ' 79, Fly Summit. JUST A YEAR AGO February 6 , 1975 Just about 15 per cent of the people in Salem who went to the polls the previoxts Wednesday went to vote against a proposed sewerage bon<| issue for the village.. Despite tnis- erable weather, 309 people voted, and 231 jpf them . voted against the proposition. There were 78 votes in favor. State historians to be eliminated January 24,1976 Richard Tefft, Editor Greenwich Journal Greenwich, N.Y. 12834 Dear Mr. Tefft: What better way is there to reach people other than through your paper? The office of state history and the positions of that office’s historians will be. abolished by February 27! One of the many cuts in the New York state budget! - There has been a state historian since 1895. In le state’TustomrT was made director of the division of Archives and History in the state education department. With interest in New York state history being emphasized during this bicentennial year, and probably more so in 1977 when New York state will commemorate its 200 th year, the loss of the services of the state historians should arouse the indignation of every­ one interested in over history. All (organizations or individuals” who have made. or expect to. make ^ use of the services of the state historian should write to their represent^ tives in the legislature and .... ask that this ^jervice he kept in the budget. It is certainly a. de­ plorable situation 'when \ the taxpayers must fi- Vnance the legislators* aght to continue paying Jhemselves -over $850,000 “ ETuIus iri addition to their regular salaries and ex­ penses, and at the same time abolish the office of state history — a long established, useful, and needed department. Only by writing to your- legislators can you make your views known. They will listen in an election year!
