Reel 3: 'Then it Happened.' Documentary about 1947 fire in southern and western Maine. Color, sound. Reel 4: Forest Fire Film, edited but no titles. Narration and music over color footage. Untitled fire prevention film. "Mr. Stevens" is the bad guy who set the fire unintentionally. "You weren't careful enough. ...As with all good and just laws by which men govern themselves...our forests, Mr Stevens, are a vast natural resource, unlike other resources like coal mines, oil wells...from the beginning of our history the forests have been friend and protector." "Much of our land has been logged off and burned off. ...That is why we cannot allow a citizen who has started a forest fire to go unpunished." "We lose wood pulp that goes into the manufacture of paper..." "We lose material that belongs to the future, the ingenious concoctions of the chemist..." "We lose the protection of our water supply." "Within these 14 northeastern states..." Then It Happened another copy, no titles. 1947 fire in southern Maine.
