In this issue of our magazine the Society Affairs Section is devoted entirely to a consideration of the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY'S editorial policy. It centers around the petition to the Council of June 13, 1934, whose signers are plainly dissatisfied with present policies and methods of management, and demand, it would seem, a radical change. In the following pages you will find: first, an introductory statement by President Chapman, including a digest of the reactions to the petition on the part of the Council, and on the part of those 87 members of the Society who have had opportunity up to date to write the Council; second, the petition itself; third, a statement by the former Editor-in-Chief, Professor Emanuel Fritz; fourth, a statement by the Executive Secretary giving a historical account of the editorial policies from the beginning and an exposition of current policies and practices; fifth, the Society's "Principles of Forest Policy" which were adopted by referendum vote and have been in effect since the spring of 1931. This symposium, together with President Chapman's editorial, will it is hoped give you an intelligible picture of the situation so that you can make up your minds concerning it and advise the Council accordingly.--FRANKLIN REED, Editor-in-Chief.
