Clubwomen Stressing Importance
Of Preserving Nation's Forests
By MRS. CHARLES G. 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
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
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
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
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
