Beginning with our October, 1933, issue it has been the practice of the JOURNAL to keep its readers abreast of developments under the Conservation Code (Article X of the Code of Fair Practice for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries). The Forest Practice rules became effective on June first, and since then the foresters connected with the undertaking have been devoting their time and energy to transferring the rules from paper into the woods. A progress report of accomplishment to date is in order and we are fortunate in being able to present here appraisals of the situation, as it appears to them, by two of the Society's members, viz. John B. Woods, Director of Conservation under the National Lumber Manufacturers Association, for the country as a whole; and A. B. Recknagel, Professor of Forestry at Cornell University, for the Northeastern Division.
