While the House la attempting to strip the Forest Service of its shelter belt, the Forest Service Is letting the belt out several notches. The House Appropriations Commit tee turned down a budget request for $1,000,000 to continue the project for planting trees from the Canadian border to Texas. The Forest Service, however, is planting away at a great pace and hopes to have 80,000.000 more trees In the ground out West before the money stope coming in. Before June 30, when appropriations for the project will stop If the House has Its way, parts of live or six States will be bristling with little trees which the New Deal planners hoped would check duststorms when they grow up. The past tense of the verb “hope" is used because the trees won't do much good without several hundred million more companions, and Congress seems to be in a mood to chuck the whole business. Money Adequate for This Year. Forest Service officials said they had enough money to carry on the tree shelter belt project for the rest of the current fiscal year. About five and one-quarter million trees were planted last year and forty to fifty million more are to go in the ground this Spring. Scattered throughout the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma auu bUC 1CAOO a otumuutv AO A AAAAAWm of shelter belt strip and 4,800 acres of farmstead planting—trees set around farm buildnlgs, rural school buildings, etc. Before the money gives out, 1,434 additional miles of shelter strip and 6,384 acres of farmstead sites can be planted, it was said. Owners of the land on which the trees are planted have agreed to love, honor and nurse the seedlings until they get big enough to take care of themselves. So there is no danger, officials said, that the little trees will be left to fend for themselves in a climate where fathers pray that there may be rain so their children can see what it looks like before they die. Nurseries Leased By U. S. The Government has been leasing commercial nurseries to give the right start in life to the trees that are going out to do battle with wind and erosion and to determine what trees can “take it." If the appropriation is refused, the leases will have to be terminated. Practically all existing nursery stock will be planted before the nurseries are given up, officials said. The Forest Service admits it is upset over the dark prospects for its shelter belt project, but points out that under the Clark-McNary act it may continue to co-operate with States in distrib uting trees for shelter belt planting. The number of trees that could be given away naturally will be reduced greatly if the requested funds are refused. The House yesterday rejected a motion by Representative Ferguson, Democrat, of Oklahoma, to add $180, 000 to the Agriculture Department supply bill to continue shelter belt activities.
