Washington, D. C. The pros
pect of a fierce fight on forestry,
at the National Conservational
Congress, in Washington, D. C,
November 18-20, has brought re
quests from all parts of the coun
try for the privilege of the floor of
the convention. The Congress has
accepted the challenge of the Ore
gon Development League, one of
the principal opponents of the
Conservation policy, and has given
a place on its program to one of
the big guns of the Oregon or
ganization. Fireworks are expect
ed. The large number of requests
from opposing sides has caused
the Executive Committee of the
Congress to throw down the bars
to all. For the first time in the
history of the Congress, the com
mittee has extended a general in
vitation to the Congress to every
one who is interested in Conser
vation and forestry . Hundreds of
organizations, national, state and
local, have appointed delegates to
the Congress. Scores of other or
ganizations who have not received
special invitations are expected to
appointdelegates under the open
door policy of the Executive Committee.
