Abstract:The recent annual meeting of the California Section of the Society was devoted to a discussion of the relations of California's forestry department to various state problems. The resulting papers indicate the apportioning of responsibility betweeu the federal government and the state, and are of interest to those concerned with state functions elsewhere. In the paper here presented, Mr. Price gives an excellent resum[eacute] of the background to, and the operation of the co[odiaeresis]perative forestry effort between the federal and state government as it exists in California. He reports greatly improved fire protection and cut-over land conditions on private land, and suggests that their continuation makes federal regulation neither necessary nor advisable. Other papers in this series will be found under "Briefer Articles" in this issue. A paper by State Forester Pratt, giving a history of the state forestry department appeared in the April issue.
