In some regions the use of water is straining the adequacy of the supply. In these regions there is some feeling that hill lands should be managed only for the conservation of water as the crop of paramount value. The author tells in dramatic style the relation of water to life and dwells on increasing its supply though without touchiug on the possibility of more prudent use. The article demonstrates the need for a broader conception of forestry, a more logical balance between its departments, and for more basic information as to the influences of the forest before definite and large scale changes are made in present practices and policies.
