Washington, Jan. 5.(Sy A.P.)-
Great progress was mnaide in 1924
toward the establishment of a nation-
Al forestry policy and great hopes are
entertained for 1925, says Charles
tbathrop Pack, president of the Ameri-
can Tree association, in a summary
of the work for the last year.
In Pennsylvania this year efforts,
Will be mae by the Pennsylvania For-
estry asociation to secure the passage
of 'a bill authorizing a state loan of
$2,000,000 for the purchase of -wild
lands of the state for a forest pre-
serve. Dr. Henry S. Drinker, former-
ly oq .,eigh university and long iden-
0jfied with forestry activities, is be-
hind the movement. If this measure
is passed it will be submitted for ref-
erendum. The first town forest of one
new year will be started at Brattle-
boro, Vt., this spring with the plant-
1ng, of 10,000 red pines. Wisconsin

for an appropriation for state forests.
Duing 1924, Pack Foundation prizes
for thbe best papers on foresry aimed
to interest the people were establish-
,d at Yale, Penn StateCollege of For-
estry, New York State College of For-
egstry at Syracuse, Cornell university,
Uiversity of Wisconsin, University of
California, University of Michigan,
Unhiversity of Washington, and Uni-
yeaty of Minnesota. A demonstra-
ton forest of a thousand acres was
presented to the New .York State Col-
lege of Forestry by Mr. Pack.
In Michigan, Governor Groesbeck
has asked for data upon which to base
a two year program.
Under the direction of the Depart-
met of Agriculture farmers in west-
ern Canada have been planting 20,000
trees a day. A total of 150,000,000
young trees have been distributed.
Much planting is being done by the
states, the review for the year points
out. In New York state the biggest
drive ever directed by the State Con-
ervation commission has just been
completed. Almost 10,000,000 trees
were sent out. Farmers and private
land owners took nearly 5,000,000
while industrial concerns accounted
for nearly ,000,000. Furthering thef
town forest idea, municipalities took
2,000,000 more.
In California just as the year closed
the muidwest conference of the United
States Chamber of Commerce made
reforestration the main subject of te
winter meeting. Vermont is planting
about 900,000 trees a year, says the
review, pointing out that New Eng-
land pays in the neighborhood of $3,-.
000,000 a year in freight t import
lumber for it great industrial
"The greatest and most vital prob-
lem of our age is the restoration of
our forests" believes Dean Mortimer
E. Cooley of the engineering college.
"The future without forests must be
made so clear that each and every
one will become himself an apostle to
preach and do. We are rushing into
a cul de sac which, considering our
education and supposed superior in-
teligence, is the greatest of all human
tragedies. We of our day are living
examples of the ive foolish virgins,"
he said recently.

"Our' policy of warning students
that their scholastic work is not up to

upon specific cases," Dean W. R.

well as present records and the cir-
cumstances causing such records,",
said the Dean.
Although more than 1,300 letters
were sent out before vacation to stu-
dents in the literary college, only 146
were official warnings. Most of the
letters are merely intended to advise
the student to improve present un-
satisfactory work in one or two
cote ses.
There were 75 letters sent out. to
studenits who are already on prooa-
tion, warning them that if their work
does not improve, they will be re-
quested to leave the University at the
close of the semester.
If more than eight hours of work
is unsatisfactory, an official warning
is sent to the student. A student is
placed on probation for hiav,;zg more]
than eight hours of "E" work. Stu-
dents who have previously received
