the press to give common thought to
the protection of the forests from fire

the streams insured.
The President's proclamation fol
Protection In llurntlal.
"Whereas, It is essential to the con
tinued comfort, welfare and prosper
k ity of the people of the United States
that abundant forests, widely dis
tributed and maintained in a condi
tion of high productiveness, be for
ever wisely conserved as one of our
greatest natural resources; and
“Whereas, because of our constant
ly increasing need for wood and other
forest products, together with our
pact failure to provide for reforesta
“ tion, we are drawing upon our sup
plies cf timber four times as fast as
they are renewed through growth:
Fire Is Chief Peril.
‘Whereas, the most formidable
agency of forest destruction and pre
vention of reforestation is fire and.
of the fires which annually devastate
vast areas, fonr-fifthe are ascribed in
origin to human agencies and virtual
ly all may be controlled and made In
nocuous through prudence, care and
“Therefore, I, Calvin Coolidge, Pres
ident of the United States, do urge
upon the governors of the various
states to designate, and set apart the
week of April 21-27. 1924, as Forest
iTotection week, and, wherever prac
ticable and not in conflict with state
law or accepted customs, to celebrate
Arbor day within that week. I also
urge all citizens, either in association
or an individuals, all schools, and the
press of the land to give common
thought to the protection of our for
> esta from fire, to the end that, in the
future as in the past, these forests
may supply us with wood, protect the
purity of our streams and otherwise
nerve the people of the United States.”
