A luncheon was given at noon at
the Union for the visiting foresters.
The afternoon session was devoted to
a discussion of what an educational
program in forestry should consist of
and the lines of work that a forestry
graduate -could go into after gradua-
tion. The advisibility of lumber com-
panies making available definite in-
formation regarding their holdings
from which management plans could
be made by the forestry students was
also taken under consideration. The
1 committee was desirous of being of
assistance in preserving historical da-
ta of the lumber industry by pro-
viding exhibit material, old imple-
ments used in the early gays of log-
ging, records, files of letters, and

Problems of utilization of woods
were also discussed during the con-

day were outgrowths of twohforestry

Hopes of the friends of Vare that
his case would prove stronger than

Senate vote to deny him the oath
