May 5, 1964: "A major change in forest fire detection in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest was announced today by Ross W. Williams, forest supervisor, in Vancouver. Regularly scheduled air patrols by trained observers this summer are expected to replace coverage heretofore provided by an extensive system of lookouts. The 37 regular and emergency lookout stations manned in previous years will be reduced to just six regularly manned lookouts during the coming fire season. The six stations retained will help provide communications coverage for the forest -- the primary reason for their retention. One of the retained stations will be Point 3670, Lewis River District." (Longview Daily News)
June 29, 1965: "Only one fire lookout in the Spirit Lake and Lewis River districts of Gifford Pinchot National Forest will be manned during the present fire season, Forest Fire Control Officer Wayne G. Maxwell reported Monday. All other patrolling will be done by planes. Maxwell said that Point 3670, south of the Lewis River above Pine Creek, will be the only Gifford Pinchot National Forest lookout in the two districts. Aerial fire detection flights will be flown from Randle for the Spirit Lake District and north and from Troutlake, in Mt. Adams District, for the Lewis River District." (Longview Daily News)
