The speech according to reports from

The greater portion of the burdea
of conserving the natural resource if
of the country was laid by Secretary r
BallingeV at the doors of the states
There has been and is he said a
grossly exaggerated notion among
some people as to what the general
government can do in conserving the
natural resources that lie In the de
posits of mineral and are contained
In the soils and the streams For
the most part they have passed into
private ownership and are under the
I municipal jurisdiction fit the states
I Any national conservation policy 1
i must be predicted on the policy af
I fecting the public domain since for
the most part the states are sqver
