and shall continue to feel, the strain and tension. A war- time psychology fixes attention on devices of slaughter and destruction. It diverts human effort and ingenuity from studies and devices to perpetuate the source values of human- kind. All friends of conservation need now to move and speak out together as never before. Whether your principal personal interest be in soil, grass, trees, songbirds, game, flowers, livestock, landscape or out- door recreation; and whatever your occupation-farmer, banker, forester, agrostologist, journalist, anthropologist, ecologist, teacher, student, or what not-we can all work together for the good of the land. The name under which we work might be the one sug- gested in this circular: Friends of the Land. Or perhaps Society of the Land. Or, again, The Conservation Society. This and other points, major and minor, will be submitted for determination to a larger founding group, here being cir- cularized. An organization meeting will be held in Washington, D. C., on March 22 and 23, 1940. A program, and further details will be sent to any one who writes, expressing interest. The purpose here is to indicate in barest outline what such a society could do. We could promote the conservation of land and water resources in the United States of America by: 1. Assembling information regarding the economic, in- dustrial and social need for conserving our land and waters; placing before the people of the country various issues and problems in land and water con- servation; and forwarding in the interests of the public, specific policies of conservation. 2. Encourage the organization of affiliated regional and local groups. 3. Preparing and making available to our membership and to the general public a monthly magazine, THE LAND, and other literature on the technique, im- portance, and significance of land and water con- servation, and recommending to our members suit- able literature prepared by other organizations, operating in special fields. 4. Fostering investigation, exploration, research and experimentation into the science of soil and water conservation, and recognizing achievements in this field by electing outstanding scientists as honorary members of the society, or by special awards. 5. Encouraging and furthering the practice of land and water conservation by individuals, cooperative groups, States and subdivisions thereof, and the Federal Government, and promoting legislative measures and the efficient and economical use of public funds in furtherance thereof. 6. Recognizing outstanding accomplishments in land and water conservation by farmers, soil conservation districts and other local groups, by suitable citations and awards. 7. Promoting inclusion in the curricula of our educa- tional systems of courses on the significance and technique of land and water conservation. 8. Fostering the participation of the youth and youth organizations and especially unemployed youth, in a moral equivalent of war against wastage of soil and water. 9. Cooperating with other organizations interested in the conservation of trees, grass, wildlife and people in promoting common objectives. 10. Convening periodical conferences in various parts of the country to obtain wider recognition that soil wastage threatens our institutions. We could promote the conservation of land and water resources in this and foreign lands by: 1. Appointing in each foreign country a "correspond- ent" (without pay) for the exchange of informa- tion. 2. Maintaining a clearing house of information on con- servation in foreign countries, and from time to time publishing a survey of foreign activities in this field. 3. Encouraging the establishment in this and in for- eign countries of private organizations for the furtherance of conservation. 4. Furthering the adoption of courses on conservation by educational institutions throughout the world, and the granting of traveling fellowships to foreign officials and students for the study of conservation. 5. Advising foreign governments on methods of estab- lishing programs for land and water conservation. 6. Assisting foreign mission and educational organiza- tions in incorporating programs for land and water conservation as a major objective of their work with foreign peoples. 7. At an appropriate time calling a World Conserva- tion Congress. These and other possibilities will be examined at the organ- ization meeting in Washington, March 22-23 at the Ward- man Park Hotel. A tentative Constitution and By-laws now under preparation will be discussed and revised. Direc- tors will be elected. We hope to have the organization and its magazine, THE LAND, under way by July.
