Effective now, and continuing until the end of the fire season, no smoking will be permitted within any of the eighteen national forests in California, except in established camps, at places of habitation and in certain high mountain areas in the Sierra Nevada. This was the order issued by S. B. Show, chief of the California district, United States Forest Service.

The orders further provide that each automobile or pack train party camping in the national forests must be equipped with a shovel and an ax suitable for fire fighting purposes. Shovels must have a blade at least 6 inches wide, either round or square point, and a minimum over-all length of 36 inches.
