From the text: ' Without question, the majority of the state forestry organizations have assumed a prominent role in the control of air pollution from forestry burning. On the whole, the states are facing up to the problem realistically with planned programs that demonstrate to the public that foresters are concerned about the environment. At the same time, we must be realistic and realize that even though 'forestry' smoke is comparatively innocuous, it is no time to be thoughtless or careless. In the more populous states, the present pollution rules are more inclusive and contain more restrictions. In the years ahead, the restrictions will become more rigid in many areas. For the present, state foresters have little choice, but to cooperate, be adapatable, and continue to learn all possible about smoke management and other techniques to lessen the effects of our program.'
