Yesterday tlic_ committee ' visited " Fountain Blurt, in the southwestern part of the county near Grand Tower. The committee from tile state forestry department here arc: H. C. Cole, Mr. Miller ^n'd Paul Fcdg- wick. a pjhotograph er froin Chicago University. Pictures arc taken of the regions ^vhich appear to be the sections to' be recommended for forest reserves. The pictures arc taken and reviewed by the department, upon which it is determined what regions will be set aside. The state movement is in connection which the .preserving of our forest as a part of the natinoal movement, providing for the preservation of our trees. Sections where it is found that trees should be saved' from cutting will likely be; used later for the use of the pub : lie for recreation grounds and other uses. , The slaving onr trees ~Ss the result of the rapid disappearance of many o* the best forests in the state. The trees are cut and none are taking their places. The condition has brought about a situation which threatens to make • forests extinct if'\not checked. Millions of acres of virgin forests arc made into lumber without regard for the future uses of trees. The desirability of retaining our forests is not oniy found in the beauty 'they lend the- country, but also of "practical use for their influence upon the climate. In sections where there are \io trees it is likely to be dry, or the rainfall unequally distributed so' that crops -suffer From the lack of rain, which a region of trees make possible. The committee left this morning for Alto Pass and Ball Knob: Bc- "siclcs the members of the state £om- mission those who went on the outing today were: Miss Mary Steagall of the Normal faculty, County Supt. of Schools and Mrs. O. F. Aken, Frank Hines, County Farm "Advisor Thomas, and Prof. Bailey of the Normal. Tomorrow the party will go to Jonesboro, spending, the rest of the week' in Union ar.d Alexander counties. The state forestry officials wih then return in . a few weeks and complete their work in Southern Illinois. ASK $4,450,000 FOR C. & Er-|.
