The SAF can make valuable contributions to the development of public policy for natural resources by clarifying issues and offering a technically sound basis for decisions. SAF policy efforts have been inadequate as shown by past attempts with the wilderness issue. The public's needs must be anticipated and met through carefully programmed reviews, resulting in balanced reports of significant pro-and-con facts and opinions, secret ballots on illuminating questions, and publication of the reports and ballot results. The place of the Chapter, Section, and National organization in such a program is suggested.
