Abstract:The proposed reorganization of federal departments has a vital bearing on the future of forestry in this country. Shall forestry be divorced from the Department of Agriculture? Is any other existing department qualified to carry on the work toward the same objectives? Is a new department necessary? Dean Graves discusses these questions. He believes that those activities relating to the protection and conservation of the soil and its products should be unified in one department and that the Department of Agriculture is the natural and only competent agency to handle them properly.
