DOAK Prservation and development of forests through education and leg islation has been an important phase of work in the North Caro lina Federation of Women’s clubs for more than thirty years. Like wise the General Federation of Women’s clubs has carried on a nation wide program of education as to the value of all natural re sources particularly the forests of the country. It is not surprising that forward looking citizens seeking support of the development plan known as “Experimental Forests for the South’’ should call upon the club women to spread information about its importance, and to sup port legislation that would provide forest farms where land owners might learn the most scientific method of raising and markting timber. Mrs. Rowland H. Latham- a past president of the state federation, living in Asheville, has long taken a deep interest in conservation of the beautiful forests in her section. She is now asking that clubwomen join her in requesting their Con gressmen to vote for an appropri ation of $420,000 to be used to fi nance the establishment of exper imental forest farms in 10 centers in the South. In a letter to Mrs. S. Henry Highsmith, the federation presi dent, Mrs. Latham calls attention to the fact that the South’s virgin forests were largely sacrificed to supply lumber for the first World War, and that the same thing is being done in this war period. “Southern people need to learn the proper methods of forest farming and the money possibilities in volved,” she says, “and it to pro vide this knowledge that the ex perimental farms are needed." Mrs. Highsmith joins Mrs. Latham in her request that all clubs as sist in educational work in behalf of forest farming, and particular ly that they support the bill now before the sub-committee on agri cultural appropriations in the House that would provide an ap propriation for the experimental farms. The appeal made last Sunday m this column by Mr*. Highsmith to clubs to seek recruits for the hos pital companies now being formed by the Women’s Army Corps seems to have struck a responsive cord with the clubwomen. Lt. Mar garet Pegram, who sought the aid of the federation in recruiting North Carolina’s quota of 105 women by March 20, reported to federation headquarters that a mother and daughter in Greens boro volunteered immediately upon reading the appeal. It is ex pected that every club in the fed eration will make some effort to recruit helpers in this emergency :all, and that they will report to Mrs. Highsmith names of women vho enlist because of work done ny the clubs. Full information ibout the need for recruits and lualification requiremnts may be >btained from' Lt. Margaret Pe ;ram, Women’s Army Recruiting Station, Raleigh. That they study the Dumbarton Daks proposals and arrange meet ngs for that purpose is another ecent appeal made to the clubs jy Mrs. Highsmith. Here are some the clubs that have reported i meeting held or the process of irrangement: Selma - Woman’s dub, Walter Hines Page Book club >f Aberdeen, Clayton Woman’s dub, Troy Mothers’ club, Winston Salem Junior Woman’s club, Dreenville Junior Woman’s club, Gorlina Literature and Music club, Dxford Woman’s club, Walkertown Woman’s club.
