TOUR HOPES TO RAISE SUPPORT FOR OLD TREES

For those unable to get to the forests of the Pacific Northwest, Lou Gold and his fellow forest-advocates are bringing part of it to you. A 731-year-old Douglas fir log left Washington State April 22 as the pi`ece de r'esistance of the Ancient Forest Rescue Expedition, a nationwide tour to raise public consciousness about deforestation. The log, originally from the Olympic National Forest in Washington, was bought from a lumber mill.

Traveling atop an 18-wheel truck, the seven-foot diameter, 20-foot-long log has been stopping at dozens of towns and cities en route to a Washington, D.C., rally scheduled for today and tomorrow.

The Seattle-based Expedition will go on to Atlanta, Nashville, St. Louis, and other cities, giving slide shows and folk-music presentations, before winding up in Portland, Ore., May 19.
