June 22, 1935: "When Fred Cairns picked up a county paper Friday, he read that he is to be master of ceremonies at the dedication of the new fire lookout to be opened Sunday, July 21, on Mt. St. Helena. He says it must be so, but he has not been informed that he has the job. Cairns, secretary of the Healdsburg chamber of commerce, is also chairman of the publicity committee of the State chamber of commerce, and yet he didn't get in on the publicity story carrying this information. But he will undoubtedly officiate when the new lookout station is opened. The new fire detection depot will command a view of most of the area between the Sierra and the Pacific, and from San Francisco bay to the Siskiyous." (Healdsburg Tribune)

Recently a new road was constructed to the summit of Mt. St. Helena and today William Felt Jr., secretary of the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District, received a communication from Henry Lundell, fire-lookout, of the State Forestry Service, stationed on top of the mountain, informing him that on clear days the bridge towers and cat walk cables are clearly visible from the mountain peak lookout station."

September 11, 1935: "Recently a new road was constructed to the summit of Mt. St. Helena and last week William W. Felt, Jr., secretary of the Golden Gate Bridge and Highway District, received a communication from Henry Lundell, fire look of the State Forestry Service, stationed on top of the mountain, informing him that on clear days the bridge towers and catwalk cables are clearly visible from the mountain peak lookout station. This being true, observers from Mt. St. Helena have seen little progress during the past week, for according to the progress report of Chief Engineer Joseph B.
