Future gen erations of Americans may face famine conditions, such as are now agonizing millions of Chinese. This is the ominous warning issued by the Department of Agriculture, whose foresters declare that Chinese famine conditions are partly respon sible to the "folly of deforestation," SUBURBAN DAY which has gone on in China for many years The ruthless destruction of their forests by the. Chinese is one of the reasons why famine and plague today hold that nation in their sinister grasp," says a statement issued by the Department of Agriculture. "Denuda tion, wherever practiced, leaves naked soil; floods and erosion follow, and when the soil is gone men must also go and the process does not take long. Forests not only play an impor tant part in the distribution of man kind over the earth's surface, but also deeply affect his spiritual, physical and economic life. A country that recklessly wastes its natural resources faces ultimate poverty and decadence. History is full of such examples. "Human folly and short-sightedness ftj"'9.

The lesson of deforestation in China is one -which mankind should have learned many times from what iicis occurred in other places. In fact. :l may, in a lesser degree, even be brought home to the people of Ameri ca in future years unless, through wise forethought, care is exercised in the preservation of our forests from destruction by fire and wasteful lum bering." i Cause of Great China Floods. When signs bearing the warning, "Beware of the Mountain "Water," such as appear in many places in China, begin to appear in America, then the nation must guard against a decadence in its natural resources, the foresters of the Department of A erriculture declare. The Great Plains of Eastern China were transformed from forests into agricultural fields centuries ago. The mountain plateaus have also been devastated of their tree growth. As a result water rushes off the naked slopes in veritable floods. gullying away the mountainsides and carrying large quantities of fertile soil away to the muddy China seas. Tree-covered mountains of China formerly absorbed a considerable portion of the rainfall and permitted It to escape by slow seepage during the dry season. Now that there are no trees, shrubs, or even grass to restrain the rainfall the streams of China are but little rivulets during the dry sea Bon, but become roaring torrents, bringing disaster and destruction, in the wot season. Agriculture becomes difficult, if not impossible, in these regiB, with consequent lack of food. Though it would take many years for deforestation to reach the stage in America which it has reached in China, nevertheless the forestry ex perts of the United States Department of Agriculture declare that now is the time to act to save this nation from any future suffering.
