The foundation conlists of $1,000
at five per cent interest. In present-
ing the gift, Mr. Pack said: "My idea
is that we may possibly get some new
I methods of arousing public interest
in forestry. At least, we will hope
better to equip forestry students and
foresters better to sell their ideas to
the public, and to make them interest-
ing and effective."
