Saving the Trees
Responsible Organizations Urging Forst Policy.
The Forest Industries Program Committee, a group of
men interested in establishment of a national forestry policy
in the United mtates, will meet in Washington next week.
They will consider the problem of the forests of the
United States, neglect of which is little less than a national
The State of Indiana, with an area of more than 22,000,
000 acres, was, a few short years ago, virtually covered
with one of the best hardwood forests in the world, says
the American Forestry Association.
The timberland of Indiana is now about one and one
half million acres. The story of Indiana is the story of
many other States. The result is obvious, the association
points out, in the high prices of lumber, the freight rates
from distant points to the wood-using industries in such
States as Indiana, and the high cost of living generally.
Here in Washington we know something of the na
tional housing situation. If we could see the long haul of
lumber taken from the backs of the railroads we would
see freight congestion, particularly coal congestion, de
This country seeds a national forest policy. Behind
th3 measure now proposed are such organizations as Na
tial Lumber Manufacturers' Association, National Whole
sale Lumber Dealers' Association, American Paper and
Pulp Association, American Newspaper Publishers' Associ
ation, Association of Wood Using Industries, and the
United States Chamber of Commerce.
Senator Harding has expressed himself favorably on
a national forest policy.
Charles Latirop Pack, in commenting on the legislation
to be proposed by the committee, said:
"The greatest forward step in forestry in many years
h s just been achieved. Practically every interest con
cerned in a forest policy has agreed upon provisions for
urtional legislation which will combine protection from
forest fires, provide for reforestation and acquirement by
the Government of more forest land and will go far toward
providing sufficient forest products for our future needs.
"The legislation proposed is sane, coniservative, fair
to every one concerned, essentially practical and, what is
1n1st important, is of a character that Congress is most
likely to approve, adopt and make into law.
"It is the first time in the history of forestry in this
country that all of the interests concerned are so closely
united in approval of proposed forestry legislation and
staind so closely together in the endeavor to -secure its
passage by Congress"
To put new heart into discouraged men the following
