This article comments on a series of papers on multiple use, prepared for the postponed Salt Lake meeting of the Society of American Foresters, and published in the September, October, and November, 1943 issues of the JOURNAL. The author takes the view that multiple use, while coordinating several uses, must retain the feature of specialization in order to promote efficiency. He would rank prospective uses on each parcel of land on the principle of greatest permanent benefits to the public, placing the nation first, the community second, and the individual last.
