Protection of 'the constitutional

urged by President Walter A. Shaw
in his annual report. Tho greatest
enemies of regulation, he said, are

than tho same land would grow if
it were planted in crops, especially
in its infertile condition. .
The Department of Agriculture in
recent investigations has found tho
two greatest enemies of reforesting
tho long leaf pine areas to he hogs
and Hrs. On tracts where the hogs
have been kept ont, over 6,000 long
leaf pine trees have been secured the
first year. Where tho razor-backod
hogs havo boen allowed to roam the
forests feeding on the roots and tho
tender plants, there were less than
a dozen long leaf saplings at the end
of the first year. Protection from
fires and adequate stock laws would
remove these difficulties. Our agri
cultural colleges and the State De
partments of Agriculture will do woll
to look into the future of the cut
over rough pine lands. Forestry spe
cialists could well be added to tho
extension organization in the long
leaf pine States.

health their presence does no harm,
