Waste not want not! The wisdom of that advice has never been doubted. Until recent years, however, the necessity of following it has not been fully appreciated in America. It is today becoming more and more evident to the people of this country that if we are to remain nationally strong and economically stable, the conservation, preservation and development of our natural resources must become a matter of national concern and united effort-for these natural resources form the only solid foundation for national wealth. This is particularly true of resources that are self-renewing and capable of continuous production.
