For thirty-two years the Forest Service in the Department of Agriculture has been serving the Nation with fidelity and distinction. Great progress in forest conservation has been made. Now, when the goal is almost in sight, the proposal is made to transfer the Forest Service from the Department of Agriculture to the Department of Interior. This proposal involves fundamental considerations of policy, purpose, and ideals. The real issues are nonpartisan and nonpolitical. Some of the more important of these are discussed by President Chapman. This paper should be read not only by all foresters, but all others interested in the conservation of natural resources.
