In the June number of this JOURNAL, Mr. Woods summarized the Lumber Code situation as of May 7th. Since that time the N.R.A. foundations of all codes have been swept away. The code principle was peculiarly applicable to the problem of forest conservation, and it is most regrettable that the time was too short and government enforcement too lax to permit a fair trial and demonstration. There still remains a reasonable hope that out of the wreck will be salvaged the spirit of cooperation of government and industry and the essential framework of a joint conservation program.
