Onikthl, ^spiritual leader of the All-India Congress Party, attacked the present, Iixt- dian Rdmlnfitrallon today as a "refugee rule of anti-Christ." with the rulers professing "Christian faith". 'There Is Satanlo rule cvery- — . . - where," Gandlil said. "People tpolc federal government employes arc | t | le nnmr ot cod, but their rulers Forestry Study Madeat Crossett Timber Production On Permanent Basic Emphasized CROSSET, Ark., June 14. (UP) —Here, on a ' tract to . land some two miles square, a handful of bringing about a revolution In the forest industry of the south. A study of Pine trees by Russell R. Reynolds and other U. S. Foresters has shown that timber can be grown like any other farm croj>—and at a profit. It Is proving that timber Is a permanent, industry and not the "cut-off-amt- mbve-out" project of the past. Reynolds has been studying three growth at the Crossett EXIKM •Imtn- tal Forest for II years and knows the timber business from n scientific and from a business standpoint. His laboratory— a 1,080-acre tract eight miles south of Crossett—was given to the government by the Crossett Lumber Co., with 20 years in which to return to the company a volume of timber equivalent to the mercanlable volume °f the forest In 1937, the date of the deed. After 20 year.!, title to both land and timber will placed Satan on the throne God." He apparently referred to the food and clothing shortage In India, and his remarks were believed indicative of the present political trend. There have oeen no results announced us yet from continued conferences between Indian leaders and tiie British cabinet mission. sound forestry methods, with the amount of cutting equalling the new growth. lu eight years, eight cuts of limber have yielded products worth $1.271 on the stump or $4,655 di- llvcred to the mill. That Is the equivalent of $3.99 and $14.55 nil acre a year respectively. The 1945 harvest, with R market value of $003.73 at the mill, included pulpwood, sawtous. fuclwood and posts. Today there Is as much timber as rest with tlie government. And, according to Reynolds, the plot has returned more than 60 per cent of the timber and the government will own the property long before the end of 20 years. Tlic government recently leased an additional area, making a total of 3,500 acres. The sccoml- Browth, shortleaf, loblolly pinc- hardwood timber in this area is representative of the average forest in the western part 01 the southern pine region. Back In 1934, when Reynolds took over, he was faced with a "hardwood invasion"—n growth ot low-vftlu c hardwoods crowding out seedling young pines. He has battled the problem and finally come to the conclusion ilmt the answer is a sharp axe and saw. Cut out the hardwoods if they overtop the pine. However, he points out that markets for hardwood — both chemical plants and paper mills—are. being created that wilf turn once-unwanted hardwoods into more cash. Trees,, like other farin crops, must . be weeded .cultivated atxt harvested when they are ripe. Reynolds sajs. "We call it timber farming." To back his statement, Reynolds has figures showing that on a tract of timber worth $40 an icre', the yearly increase amounts to 43.04 when handled scientifically and $1.28 when left unmanaged. A cut-what-you-wtmt plan is showing amazing results on a block of. timber the Crossett foresters call their "farm forestry forty."
