There is no intention or desire to exterminate the 7ray 
squirrel, nor is the species in the slightest danger of exter- 
mination from human agencies within the next fifty yearn, even 
though afforded no legal protection whatever. It is our desire, 
however, to use our pine seed to restock the public forests 
until such time as that is satisfactorily acconrlished.

Dear Sir: 
Attached is a copy of a letter received from 
Ranger Smith. 
The tassel eared sqairrel is not only destructive to 
pine timber but is a detriment to the stock industry in this 
country when feed is scarce in the spring. 
I should appreciate receiving any information you may 
have on this subject and suggest that it might be a good 
idea to have Ranger Smith study the matter further and 
submit his conclusions. 
Very truly yours, 
Encl.                    qore *  Supervisor.
