June 23, 1930: "prompt action on the part of an Oklahoma ranger today saved a 3 year old child from possible death by burns, an official report received at the state forestry bureau by George Phillips, forester, disclosed. Buddy Baker, for four years a watchman on Carter Mountain, in the Pushmataha forest region, spotted a column of smoke about two miles from his tower. He reported to the forest office at Broken Bow and ran to the scene. He found a log and a large patch of grass burning in a berry pickers' camp. Flames had surrounded a bundle of bedding on which the 3 year old boy was sleeping. Baker stamped out the flames just as the fringes of bedding began to smoulder, the report said."
