The development of the Civilian Conservation Corps has led to the official attitude that the fire suppression force thus provided takes the place heretofore occupied by protection men employed with the aid of Clarke-McNary funds. The writer contends that this policy is dangerous. It means that the organized and trained prevention forces are reduced, while Civilian Conservation Corps' effort increases the potential sources of fire risk. It is contended that the creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps should lead to a more intensive protection of the forest values created.
