Progress Without Hysteria
Two years ago it was announced that a Joint Congressional Committee on Forestry would study the whole problem of America's forests and recommend to the Congress a broad legislative program to meet the country's need. Because of limited funds, elections, the press of legislative duties, illness, and indifference, this was a big order. Nevertheless, ten hearings have been held, and several pounds of transcript with supporting data are available for study. Now the committee has obtained an extension of time for making its report. The question is asked whether it will try to tell the Congress how to solve the whole problem, as previously announced, or declare it to be unsolvable at present, or suggest the enactment of a few most urgently needed measures, as a beginning.
