Forest Fire Protection--A National Interest
Abstract:In this article Mr. Morrell discusses the fundamental basis on which federal contribution toward forest fire protection rests. An interesting tabulation of the various factors, urged as a basis of contribution to the states, is used to show that certain bases would be unsatisfactory while others are fundamental. These and other facts are used to prove that federal contributions should be based on national interests in forests as sources of raw material and protectors of drainage aud recreation areas.
