The senator said he had noticed, in world-wide travels, that the ec- onomy of other countries had been seriously lowered when timber re- serves were depleted. MLsissippi, he said, should move "exceedingly slow" and should stop elling its timber lands. Wallace Turner, of Leakesville, Soil Conservation commissioner of the Three Rivers district, served as toastmaster. C. E.

The senator said he had noticed, in world-wide travels, that the ec- onomy of other countries had been seriously lowered when timber re- serves were depleted.
