The author, a forester and economist by background, explains the present controversy between public grazing land managers and western live stock industry. He points out weaknesses in arguments by both sides, and nrges range economic research. The object of this would be to determine the factors essential for operating a successful livestock ranch, and how these mnst be integrated to achieve economic stability. He suggests adjnstment payments to help stockmen make necessary reductions while the range is being improved. This of course is but one device that economic studies might show appropriate to use in helping the stockman to live in complete harmony with the soil and forage resource upon which his prosperity depends.
