Millions of long leaf seedlings
sprang up over the South in the feal
fall of 1913, resulting from a very edu
heavy seed crop and favorable a
weather conditions. At the re- ait
quest of Henry E. Hardtner, of 1i3,
Urania, La., the Forest Service of sur'
United States Department of Ag
riculture, in co-operation with the Le
Louisiana Department of Conser- ed
vation. laid out a series of per- ver
manent experimental plates. They nov
were established at Urania in
January 1914, the aim being to re
secure reliable information re
garding natural reproduction of reCo
long-leaf pine. cal

"Four sample tracts of one
quarter of an acre each were ee- v)
lected of about the same charac- evi
ter and about equally well stocked r
with 1-year- old long-leal pine on
seedlings. Two of these plate
were fenced againts cattle and
hogs and two left unprotected. a
Further, one plat in each of these
two series had since been burned Pý

"A remeasurement of the sam
ple areas was made in the winter
of 1919-20. The unfenced tracts
Swere each found to contain onli H
two long.leaf pine sapling. Sitnce
i they originally had 734 and 813
seedlings, respectively, this was
a loss of 99.6 and 99.7 per cent of a¬
trees. The fenced tracts on the a
other hand, were found to contain
Sfull stands, numbering 1,513 and
11 1,707, respectively, of little long
leaf trees. This is the equivalent

under protection, as compared
with eight per acre unprotected
against hogs This difference is
practically accounted for, it is
definitely known, by the fondness
of the "razorback" hogs for the
thick succulent bark on long-leaf
pine taproots. Although present
in widely varying numbers, this
famous southern forager usually
occurs in sufficient numbers to
destroy during the course of the
first two or three seasons, and
even during periods of exttaordi
nary reproduction, the majority
of all young long-leaf pines. It

-"In the f-:,ced qualt i -oer
- tracts theIr's h.ui (.c~cred during
the five years a coasiderable in
crease in the number of long-leaf
seedlings, In one, for example,
the number has increased from
927 at the start to 1,707, equiva
lent to 84 per cent. The experi
ment further indicates that. the
grazing of hogs does not prevent
the seedling in of short leaf and
loblolly pines, for some have
sprung up on both the ungrazed
and the grazed tracts.
"The effect of yearly controlled
burnings is shown in a decided
check in the growth of long-leat
~ and the killing out 11 of the
shorteleaf and loblolly pines
which are.not practically resist
ant to fires.
"On the track burned over
yearly only three-tenths of one
per cent of the longleaf saplings
were over two feet in height, and
the tallest was 2.8 feet while on
ik the protected tract 16.3 per cent
were over two feet and the tallest
ateasured eeven feet. The effect
Ia of burning on a very small tract
of this size, whether controlled or

AItendmtent No. 7.
An urgent appeal for the de
feat of Amendment No,1 on Nov
ember 2nd has been sent out by
a number of New Orleans organ
iza ions, including the Dock
Board, which sponsored the mea
sure at the last session of the
Legkilature. '
Unless this amendment is turn
ed down, it is pointed out, two
very imlportant tax exemptions
7now enjoyed by the state will be
Ammendment No. 7 proposes to
re-enact Article 230 of the State
Constitution so that industries lo.
cated on the New Orleans Indus
trial Canal will he exempt from
taxation. It is so worded how
ever, that its adoption will repeal
d Act 52 of 19i4 which exempts
Sfrom taxation money on hand or
e on deposit and homestead loans,
d and Act 253 of 1916 which ex.
einmpts from taxation American
e flag ships domiciled in Louisiana
d ports and engaged in overseas
S Discovery of this defect in the
t amendment was made by the New
Orleans Association of Commerce
which immediately sought legal
er opinjou to verify its belief. Mr.
tH Uenry P. Dart, a well known
1 New Orleans attorney and Hon
aorable Luther E. Hall, Assistant
SAttorney General, have advised
of against the adoption of the
