lOREST BATiLE
RAGES FIERCELY
STRUGGLE FOR CONSERVATION
OF TIMBER IS LIVELY AS
EVER IN CONGRESS.
MEANWHILE TREES VANISH
United States Is Consuming Them
Nearly Four and 'a Half Times as
Fast as They Are Growing, Says
Secretary Wallace.
By EDWARD B. CLARK
Washington.-It was a long while
ago, as time'ordinarily Is coptnted by a
fleeting generation, that- TiTeodore
Roosevelt called the governors of the
states together in the east room of
the White House to consider ways and
means to conserve the natural re
sources of the country. Some good
came out of the conference. The con
servation fight, however, is on just as
strong today in congress as ever it
was.
You can hear anything you want
to in Washington on this subject. Men
will tell you that the conservationists
are persons who want to save every
thing there is, simply for the purpose
of looking at it and giving the people
a chance to admire Its beauty. Other
persons will tell you that the preda
tory interests are bent on getting rich
quick by using up everythin g that na
ture has provided for man, and allow
ing posterity to go hang. There is a
middle ground somewhere, but the
thing is to find it.
Once on a time, not so very long
ago, two men, one of whom reached
the eminence of second officer of gov
ernment and the other the eminence
of third offlcer of government, de
clared in public speech that there was
no necessity of trying to save any
thing-thait posterity could pull down
out of the air everything that was
needed for its comfort, its safety and
its progress. That these two men
made this statement is a literal truth.
One of them did not hear the last of
it until he (lied, and the other at an
advanced age is still hearing about It.
Trying to Save the Forests.
Just now there is a movement in
Washington to secure the transfer of
the bureau of forestry frpnm the Depart
ment of Agriculture to the Department
of the Interior. The proponents of
the plait say that if the change Is
made the forests will be saved, and
the opponents say that if the change
is made the forests will disappear.
Take your choice.
A country without a tree is a pretty
poor country. The hope of people who
can see not only utility but beauty' in
the branches of a drooping elm, is that
whether the forestry bureau is left
where it is or moved elsewhere, elms
will continue to grow, and with them
oaks, pine, basswood, ash, .and all t~he
other forest growths. ..
Some statements have been made re
cently by Secretary Wallace of the
Department of Agriculture, and they
are somewhat startling. They prob
ably will be met by counter state.
ments. Then the -counter statements
must be read, digested, and compared
with the original statements for the1
purpose of arriving. at something like
the truth. In an article by 0. Gould
Lincoln of Washington, Secretary Wal
lace is quoted as saying this:
"The United States is now consum
ing wood nearly four and a half times
as fast as it is being grown. We are
steadily eating up what is left of our
forest capital. .As a result the coun
try nowv faces the definite prospect
of a growing scarcity and increasing
cost of everything made from wood. It
is a problem which In the long run af
fects every class of American citizen.
It affects the manufacturer, the home,
builder, and the farmer to an almost
equal degree.".
'iimber is Going Fast.
The country is told that the remain
ing forests of the United States are
being cut at the rate of about 5,000,
000 acres annually, and from 8,000,000
to 10,000,000 acres are being burned
each year by forest fires.
,It is said that 01 per cent of the tim
ber left is wvest of the Rocky mnoun
tains. The secretary of agriculture
points out that four-Qfths of the pop
ulation, four-fifths of American agri
culture, .and ,nine-tegths of A merlean
manufacturers are east of the Rock
ies. In the meantime tho assertion is
made that the rates for bringing lum
ber to the ~markets have increased
steadily, that two-thirds of the lunmber
users of the country today pay mere
per thousand 'feet in lumber frdight
alone than they paid for the delivered
commnodity 30- years ago.
