This article is another in a series of comparable papers appearing annually in the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY since 1934, reporting the enrollments at the schools of forestry and the numbers of degrees conferred. Statistics of this type were first assembled when the Forest Education Inquiry made its study in 1929-31, and were published in the Inquiry's report in 1932.2 The annual articles in the JOURNAL have brought to date the figures for each successive year.3 Those for 1945-46 show an increase in enrollment over 1944-45 of 902, or 158 percent, in undergraduate students, and of 94, or 313 percent, in graduate students.
