happy privilege of reading thousands
of books donated for their recreation
by Connecticut people. Approximately
40,000 books have reached the war

March by the Connecticut public li

for each submarine chaser and an al

without the necessity of another book

Preliminary Final Figures on 1917
A total computed lumber cut for
the United States in 1917 of 35,831.000
feet is announced by the Forest Ser
vice. This figure is -based on reports
received up to May 15, from 16,408
sawmills out of the 24.815 believed to
have operated last year. It is estimat
ed that the actual cut in 1917, on the
basis of compiled figures was approxi
mately iu per cent less than the pro
duction in 1916.
The falling off in lumber production
during the past year is attributed
principally to largely decreased pri
vate building operations, the scarcity
of labor in connection with smalT op
erationS, transportation difficulties.
curtailment of demand on the .part of
wood-using industries, and a more ev
less general dislocation of lumber dis

trade. A considerable portion of the
total quantity produced was utilized
in meeting the exceptional demands for

the two preceding years.
A comparison of the computed cut
