Our current editorial, "Foresters Must Think," adjures our profession that it must think, sanely, constructively, and independently, and that it owes a professional duty to the public welfare to guide the public thought aright in questions and problems of forest policy and practice. A long succession of preceding editorials have been written and published for the definite purpose of stimulating such thinking on the subjects with which they dealt, in the hope that some men at least would accept the challenge and, in this department of our Journal (a free forum for interchange of opinions), present their views for the benefit of all interested. Our February editorial at last bore fruit, and produced several "Letters to the Editor" from members of the Society of the sort to aid in the development of individual opinion on the points raised. Others have expressed their opinions confidentially. They are printed below.--Franklin Reed, Managing Editor.
