The writer of the following proposal looking toward solution of the forest problem is a graduate of the Harvard School of Business Administration, where he specialized in lumbering under Professor Richard T. Fisher. He has been with the Weyerhaeuser interests for 12 years. For the last 5 he managed their operation at Coeur d' Alene, Idaho. As Chairman of the Forestry Committee of the National Lumber Manufacturers' Association he was invited as a conferee to the recent Forest Conservation Conference. As a result of his experiences and observations he has drawn up an outline of a plan which he believes would perpetuate the commercial forests in a manner which would preserve the benefits of private enterprise and also protect the public interest at minimum cost under the new economic order. His forebears on both sides had timber interests and it is his ambition to pass on these properties to his descendants.
