Pilgrims Found Plenty Ot Timber; Times Change How much wood \vas growing In America's primeval forests ten years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock?

In the aoo years since then, 9,500 billion board feet have grown to supply America's needs. Oilly a '.small part or our forestry resources (3.259 billion 'feet) were used for lumber, however the Association says.' The . greatest consumption .was by . natural cause/ such 'as Insects, fire anil ' disease. Clearings and-cubing for fuel accounted for another' part. Teen-Agers Accused CIADSDEN, Ala.. Feb. 11.
