Professor Huntington first gave public expression to his appraisal of the Shelter Belt Project at the recent annual meeting of the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests at Plymouth, N. H., on September 6-7, 1934. His remarks, coming from a recognized authority on economic geography made a profound impression on his audience, including a number of professional foresters, and created a demand to see them in print. It is in response to that demand that the following article is offered to the JOURNAL'S readers. It is understood that a prominent member of the Shelter Belt Project staff has in course of preparation an exposition of the project from the standpoint of those officially connected with it. It is to be hoped that his copy will come in in time for the December JOURNAL. It is to be regretted that it was not available for this November number.
