The author argues that conservation to be meaningful, must be looked upon as wise use, frugality, and use without waste, and that it starts with the individual's wise use of his own resources--time, effort, and money. He believes that conservation is too frequently preached by those who are not guided by its basic principles in their own affairs and in the handling of public monies. He pleads for conservation teaching at its roots--frugality--to develop a race of citizens to whom all waste is abhorent and from whom a more frugal corps of public servants can be enlisted.
