I O riuIe t ~b te 'within , field district bi 4aet lc of the oftlicals at the 4 t 1headquartes-mth annual t of the forest supervisors of rditriot opened splendidly yesarO C . morning at the iasonto Temple SThe first day was a busy one; I The opening ession was at I a, m., rid with only an hour's liketeilioti I the afternoon saeslon continued' until 1 6:10 o'clock. htnlrgs moved lively throughout the day. Where were no long drawn-out speeahes, but rather short, terse expressions of opinion as the several subjets ceame up for con aderation. In (act the tAlks were limited to 10 tntht~tes and this rule was strictly adhered to, giving more of the pnp.arisrs an opportunity to be heard and drawing forth sentiments which wer representative of the whole body lanstead of one or two men. It' (Wos partloularly noticeable that the supervisors needed no co.ding to ex press themsnlves. They wore all pre pared to talk upon aen subjects which have a direct bearing upon the work 'in which they are engaged and over which they have charge. Neither 'were the men all of the same mind. Opinion concerntng many things was often squarely divided, but as different phases of each subject were brought out by the several supervisors the views of many were modified and at the conclusion of the discussions the general opinion and understanding was much nearer a unit than when the toplcs were opened. Districot lPrester F. A. Silcox pre sided at the morning seasion and opened the meeting with a general talk, reviewing the year's work throughout the Iwhole district, explain ing some poliietes that have been put in force by district officials that were not thoroughly understood and giving a brief insight into some plans and policies of the work for the coming year. -Mr. Silcox paid a tribute to WV. B. Greeley, formerly in charge of this district, but now in charge of the department of sllvlcmture at the Wash ington office, giving him credit for the planning of the general scheme of ad ministration of this field district that has resulted in much success in the work. Mr. Silcox was followed by Captain James '8. Adams from the Washington offlce, whose theme was, "The Rela tion of the District and Washington Offices .to the Supervisors." Mr. Adams stated that the policy of the service had always been to make the function of the Washington office ad ministrative, meaning general super vision and rough outlining of plans for work, while the executive function the real doing of things--l vested In the district offices and from there shifted to the supervisors. Mr. Adams explained the efforts of the service to eliminate lost motion as far as possible and to get direct action, especially In connection with forest uses which it is desired to brlng as near to the people to be served as is possible. Mr. Adams did not give a long talk, but he brought out many Interesting things in explanation of the seeming difficulties under which the supervisors were forced to work, explaining conditions which made the mode of procedure necessary. The principal subject discussed at the morning session was the statutory roll and its effect on the ~work of the service. Some of the supervisors be lieved that the fact that an allotment is made covering the salary of each man In the service for the whole year was not conducive to the best spirit In the service, as It gave too much as surrance of permanency to the posi tions. Another objection was that a great amount of trouble Is experienced by some of the field force in getting to some point from the feeld'to subscribe his name to the "roll" before a notary as is required. One Instance was cited where it required eight days for one ranger to make such a trip. Another point brought out was that the per manent force under the statutory roll did not allow as free an interchange of work or of funds from one forest to another to meet the circumstances and conditions whlioh are unforeseen at the beginning of the year, but this ar.u ment was met by the account of the experience of two supervisors who had made the exchange successfully and who believed that such a sc'heme could be made more practical. Aftemnoon. The subject of absorbing Interest during the afternoon was the matter of allotments. HMere there was a clear dlvislon with the supervisors on one side and the district officers on the other. The 'welight of sentiment front the supervisors was favorable to allot ments being made for each forest and given over to be used at the disore tion of each supervlsor, the fund re maining always to the credit of each forest. The district officials took the stand that such a scheme was not best for the district as a whole; that wher ever It was apparent that one forest could progress with Its work without utnlg all of Its allotment, the balance ehould be available for. work in other pfarts of the district where the allot. ment might mun short and that the dispositlon of this excess oa fund should be left in the hands of the dis trict offlicials. There was not time for this discussion to he completed and it will be taken up agaln today.
