DELIVERY his bill lo be considered as a sup plement for the Talle bill Jensen also was worried about whether Iowa nurserymen should be con sulted for a meeting of the minds before a comprehensive U S forest program be under taken Gross pointed out that the need for tree planting in Iowa is so great that all the facilities of the federal government plus all tho facilities of Iowa nurseries taken together could not meet the need over a long period of time He de bated whether the program should be delayed for negotiations which might never lead to anything At issue was an Iowa law pre venting the federal government from aiding Iowa farmers in re foresting for the purposes of soil or water conservation or for wild life conservation The law was passed in response to pressure from nurserymen and Jensen felt that if the nurserymen were pro perly approached they would agree io a federal program Need Help Now Gross maintained that the farm ers need forestry help now Dolliver and other congressmen attempted to find a common meet ing ground for the 2 antagonists Meanwhile Talle had preceded questioning of Champagne and Garth with a repetition of a state ment he had made last week be fore the agriculture subcommittee of the house appropriations com mittee In this statement he had charged that although budget fig ures in regard to the forest service seemed to be the same as last years because of ignoring of the pay act disallowances forest serv ice activities would actually be curtailed to the extent of S2 mil lion The effect of not allowing authorized salary increases he said is to cut the forest service appropriation which would be a backward step Is Important Resource He testified that in his opinion preventing a backward step is nol enough timber is one of our mosl important natural resources closely related to soil water anc wildlife conservation the American people are becoming in creasingly aware of the problem arising out of the depletion of our timber and other natural resources I propose that we take several forward steps within the authori zation of the present law Talle is pushing a doublebar relled approach to the forestry problem On the one hand he is asking for increases in appropria tions under present law and on the other hand he has dropped a farreaching bill in the hopper which would greatly increase U S forest service activities Champagne and MacDonald were grilled by the Iowa delegation Champagne is officer in charge of the Iowa forestry research center at Ames MacDonald for 35 years headed the forestry department of Iowa State college and is present ly a member of the National Forest Board of Review a committee of 3 appointed by the secretary of ag riculture to advise as to the for estry policy of the nation Many Timber Owners The experts bore out Talles tes timony of a previous date to the effect more than 2 million acres in Iowa timber are owned by about 80000 small owners The aver age tract in the state is

about making the most money from their woodlands Iowa farmers he said could greatly add to their earnings if they could re ceive advice and counsel in plant ing growing and harvesting of wood Much good Iowa soil could be saved from erosion and much eroded soil could be reclaimed or the erosion at least checked Federal and state funds together allow for hiring of only 2 exten sion foresters and 3 local farm for esters Commented Talle with the backing of the Iowa experts Five persons no matter how cap able and active are physically un able to give personal attention to the needs of 80000 small forest owners 3rd Iowa Industry Also subject of questioning were Talledeveloped facts that the lumber industry is 3rd in Iowa in matter of persons employed that income from w o o d 1 a n ds has amounted since 1945to an annual figure of between 15 and 21 mil lion dollars Talle maintained that such income to farmers could be multiplied if farmers were to re ceive aid with their woodland problems At the conclusion of the meet ing guest Tobe Diamond U S district attorney of the northern district of Iowa and a democrat rose to his feet and said I vish the people back home could re alize
