Before the profession of forestry will gain the public recognition and inspire the public confidence enjoyed by many of the older professions, it will be necessary to define more sharply than they are now defined the minimum educational requirements, or their equivalent, of those who are accepted by the profession as members. For several years Professor Chapman has focussed attention on this very important problem, but, largely because of the apathy of the forestry schools themselves, little progress has been made. While there may be some difference of opinion concerning the details of how the problem should be solved, there can be little if any difference of opinion concerning the need, if not the absolute necessity, of facing it fearlessly and squarely.
