Ames Forester


Public recognition has been given to the part our national forest research program played in assuring the production of critical forest products needed for the recent war effort and in solving transport problems that were the bottlenecks to supply of war and lend-lease equipment and materials. Locally, this new consciousness has been evidenced in the interest and active support of industry and conservation groups to obtain congressional approval of appropriations that will permit expansion of the Federal Forest Research Program in the South. These groups have also been actively supporting the establishment and expansion of state research work centers in schools and State Agricultural Experiment Stations.
