Foresters who wish to regard the lumberman to be the chief obstacle to, and the general public a militant supporter of better forest practices in the South should not read Mr. McGowin's article. To do so may necessitate a decided change in point of view. It would appear that many lumber companies in the South have gone about as far, if not farther, than the public has a right to expect them to go with the existing type of public cooperation. What chance has forestry when fences to keep out cattle are torn down and when incendiarism goes unprosecuted? Every reader may answer the question for himself.
