    Background: Finland's nimble-footed lumberjacks in action. This year their championship on the Ounas-river near Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle was the last there: It was the twelfth time they pitted their strength and experience against each other in the national championships on Midsummer Day but as the dam which is to be built there next Autumn will tame the rapids, the championship will have to be held elsewhere in future.

    More than six thousand spectators gathered to watch the forty competitors show their skills. The championship was won by Pauli Yliaska, who came first in three of the four events.
