shot and for which one has. been
shot, and by carrying Irish citi

BOSTON, MASS, Feb. II.
With three fifths or the primeval
forests gone, the United- States
must turn to the growing and har-.
vesting of timber crops. Colonel
W. B. Greely, chief of the- Called
States forest service, told the Mas
sachusetts bouse of representa
tives today. He said less than $
per cent of the virgin forests ot
New England remained. i
"The United 8tates has reached
the turning point in forest re

we most quit using' wood, or ws
must find a way to grow wood
trpon our millions of acres of idle
land. ' j
"A serious shortage of wood
cannot be overcome in a couple of
year. Extend publicly-owned for
ests and encourage owners of tim
ber land to grow trees aa much
as we can and the supply of wood
will still be. hopelessly Inadequate
when the pinch come. j
"By some mean we must see
tht forest land not needed for ag
riculture does not LJe idle. Require
the forest owner, within the lim
its of equity and common sense,
to grow tree bat give him fair
and reasonable publie help.
"Let the national government
determine and put before each
state the measures essential to
keep its forest landa In continu
ous timber crops. Let tbe govern

state which will put into effect
and live np to these requirements.
