When did the first White Man see Niagara Falls the big Trees of California the Yellowstone Geyser and also ble chasm a has everything been fully discovered in the United states i guess not. A commission of five men appointed by the Secretary of Tho inferior last year with Powers to Hunt for a National Park in the Southeast found two which were unknown and might have remained a unheralded and Unsung if the old spirit of exploration had not spurred them on. A Timber cutters cruised the areas but their views were commercial. A Good Many Hunters had pursued Gam in both areas but the impelling adventure was evidently the Chase and the kill for they did not pay much More attention to the remarkable scenery than did the dogs they were following. A this commission composed of five National Park a experts were of All men most sceptical before they put on their Canvas clot lies and started to examine a few suggested a we americans Hunt Oil because we want Oil and by George we find it we want one or two places worthy to be called National Parks in the East and we find Secretary of the Interior work is according to or.

It will protect the wonderful flowering shrubs and tile great j est collection of rare plan life in am Erie a. A Vou say a wily not leave them alone Why make roads because i forty million american people who live within a twelve hour journey j of those High and Cool areas need i the outdoor ii they can give and because the lumbermen Are cutting the remaining Trees in these Small areas of Virgin Forest.

A we Are a up and thrill nation hut not a wholly idiotic people to sacrifice Scenic gems to the axe of the woodsman who himself makes Little if any profit. He is Only cutting because it is his business to Cut so Long As there Are Trees As an illustration of the disastrous effects of erosion. Or. Gregg Points in his article to the experience of India and China. On this Point he writes Quot one reason that China is a decadent famine stricken country is because individual interest has gradually consumed the Trees and left the surface Barren. One reason that India has hundreds of abandoned dams and water reservoirs is because the mud has washed Down from deforested areas Aud Lilied them full of Earth. Our own great water reservoirs of the West Are slowly filling up with mud largely because our talk about reforestation is so far principally a it May be admitted a he says a that they Are secondary to the West in rugged grandeur but they Are first in Beauty of Woods in thrilling fairyland Glens and in the warmth of Mother natures Welcome. When Park roads enable you to motor to the highest Points which our commission Only reached on foot when you can get an unobstructed View where we had to climb Trees to see you May argue that the vistas from these tops Arr finer than those of the West. A Cdr. Work being a physician As Well As an administrator thinks of these Parks in terms of outdoor health of Eastern America. Our commission being composed of practical men thinks with him also of the business social and political advantages of the mingling of the North with the South of the West with the East.

The present Hall May be lighter and larger so that the proposed Hall could be used without any agreement but it was sought to eliminate the heavier and smaller Pellet now allowed. Tile subject will come up for discussion at least informally at the it. S. G. A. Meeting As the president to be of the organization William fownes. Jr., of Pittsburgh who is chairman of the committee that went to St. Andrews to obtain the new limitation on Golf balls.

Robert a. Gardner who had been in line for the presidency of the u. S. G. A. Until he gave Way As first vice president to Charles Pfeil of Memphis Titre times head of the Western Golf association said that he had player with the new Ball and found Little difference in the distance obtainable.
