In his "Letter to the President," published in the November issue of the JOURNAL, Dr. Cary made clear his dissent from many of the conclusions of the Copeland Report and his vigorous skepticism regarding the need for urging rapidly forward a federal acquisition program based in major part on the premise that private ownership has largely failed in meeting national requirements and offers little more promise for the future. The following paper returns to the theme and searchingly inquires into the trends, purposes, and implications of the present federal policies and the bases on which they rest. The forest industries, the paper concludes, should gird themselves for a struggle against federal interference aimed at domination in the name of social control.
