The following paper will be found to be a most interesting and valuable contribution to an important subject. Dr. Meinecke first analyzes the basic concepts of recreation planning; he then carefully scrutinizes the objectives; and finally considers specific treatments and developments. It is shown tbat the development of recreational areas in a forest always disturbs the existing biological order and that serious consequences are unavoidable. It is also shown that every time the government raises the standards of recreational facilities it commits itself to raise the standards of such facilities still higher. Recreational development, once begun, implies an endless chain of changes.
