They sustain and pro­ tect our vital watersheds, and preserve game birds an d animals, and fish. You come to appreciate the value of trees, and the necessity for safeguarding them from fire, when once you have spent several days in the torrid heat and dry­ ness of the desert country.

For this reason it' s encouraging to note that an all-time high of over 2 billion trees were planted in 1959, largely as a result of the tremendous increase in planting on private \lands throughout th e country. Records of the U.S. For­ est Service show that 2,118,417 acres were planted. One-third of' the land planted, or about 700,000 acres, was crop­ land placed i n the Conservation Reserve program unaer 10-year contracts, Under th e Conserva­ tion Reserve, farmers receive cost- sharing help .to place in conserva­ tion uses land voluntarily retired from crop production. During the past two years, for­ est and wind-barrier tree plant­ ing has leaped from one million acres in 1957 to 2.1 million in 1959. Tree planting on privately own­ ed land jumped from 1,326,370 acres in 1958 to 1,884,071 in 1959 Pl-.nting on federal land rose from 133,509 acres to 167,610. \We're delighted to see a n in- creaseed interest i n tree plant­ ing, particularly by private land­ owners, Agriculture Secretary Ezra Taft Benson has saio, \be­ cause we have a lot of idle forest lands to get into full production JUNK!

No t all the new planted acres will de- vt dp into productive forests. Some will b e lost prematurely through changing land uses. \Each year additional areas will need planting to replace trees lost by cutting, forest fires, in­ sects, and diseases. To catch up with the areas deforested i n the past and keep caught up, we will have to increase the rate of plant­ ing even more.'\ The outdoorsman will find much of interest and entertaiment, an d useful knowledge, in the book en­ titled' \Thousand\ Acre Marsh\ by Dudley Cammett Lunt, publish­ ed at $3.75 by The Macmillan Company, 60 Fifth Ave., New York, 11, NY. This is an account of the author's \span of remembrance\ of noteworthy incidents in hi s ex­ perience afield in Maine and Del­ aware. Th e book opens in th e spring of the year in the wide salt water marshes of Delaware. In summer there is the state of Maine and its coast of fir-crown­ ed headlands and foreshore, of beach and sea. There are canoe trips o n th e Moose River, the Allagash, th e Penobscot and the St. John. In the fall, a time of falling leaves and flying birds, there is hunting for waterfowl in Delaware. The winter closes in with beauty and the .calm of snowfall, th e chopping of next winter's supply of wood, and the magic of an ice storm. Here is good reading for the naturalist and sportsman, for al l those interested in the creatures of field and forest and the general complex of the outdoor world in each season of the year. You'll like the scenic descriptions of wildlife along the marshlands and. the piquant insight into nature which Lunt displays in his pleas­ ing prose. In view of the emphasis placed on moterboats and their operation, and the tremendous increase in pleasure boating, the U.S. Coast Guard is going to make certain that boats everywhere ar e regist­ ered. The Coast Guard has approved the numbering systems of 23 states that have adopted new systems of boat registration to conform with the Federal Boating Act of 1958. The approved system will take effect on April 1, and the Coast Guard will be­ gin numbering boats in states without numbering laws o n that day. Although the Coast Guard is only concerned with whether or not the new systems conform with the Federal Law, most of the s'ates have gone beyond that re­ quirement in their legislation an d Yes, if you cook with ELECTRICITY-the cleanest way to cook!

The registration fee scale is $3 for boats under 16 feet. $6 for boats 16 t o 26 feet, an d $10 for 26 feet and over. The Division of Motor Boats has been established to provide information and other services to boating enthusiasts in New York Stale, and t o promote the best possible use of recreational waterways for all for the swim­ mer, cottage owner, fisherman, j and water skier, as well as the boatman. We have it o n good authority I that James Heddon's Sons of 1 Dowagiac, Michigan, have worms! Not the kind you take a powder for—but those soft plastic jobs that look exactly like the real McCoy If you don't think so toss ons in front of a hungry robin this spring and -watch it disappear down the gullet! Brother, that's something! Hed- don, world's oldest and biggest maker of plastic plugs,- finally getting around to admitting that worms do catch fish! You might know their worm would have something different about it. Yep, it's got a gold band around its midriff. So, they call 'em \gold band worms\ nat­ urally. The purpose of said gold band? Greater visibility it flashes like a spoon as the ficherman works the worm. Result—fish see i t bet­ ter, hit i t more often. What'll those guys i n Dowagiac think of next? Maybe • a worm that makes a noise like a plug! Anyway, tr y your luck on trout this spring an d see if you don't creel, more and larger spotted beauties. Send two-bits to Homer Circle at James Heddon's Sons and get a deluxe catalog show­ ing the latest creations in their tackle and more dope on the \Fin-Jig Worm\ with the gold band—deadliest way to bottom bump when the trout aare grubb­ ing for food along the stream bed. At the annual banquet of the ed that an inter-state Deer Forum Old Forge, Dr. John Bulger, North Eastern Representative of the Nat­ ional Wildlife Federation, propos­ ed that an inter-state Deer Fornm Agency be created, to keep neigh boring states up t o date on what is taking place, and to handle pro­ blems in association where they are the' same. Dr Bulger also declared there is a need in this state for some organization, .such as the New York State Conservation Council, to have a full-time, well paid secretary whose job would be to keep track of legislative bills, gather all kinds of information pertimnt to sportsmen's problem?, and be prepared to report on this data when requested Firally,- he emphasized 'hnt a statewide sport man's magazine is a prime requisite in their be­ half to make them more unified, keep them informed, and defend ihrir rights. This is precisely what the \Fish An d Game World\ column has been advocating for several seasons, and . the current need for or e is even greater than ever Whi'^ Hik.n^ i'i-nR a [ HTM I ai', f h ti- r'owi 3 moun 'ri r - -nrr or dnoein'i on o woon'in-1 -ivcr 'o y >u 'ak- 1 P-'TP o' he ' T^ \ \ii o ' .'Hi are yn u -Vc to i Icn- tifv 'he common •> K •• i' o\\>r- Surpr -ine i- ll may In- mmy f 'k« ha\c ' In- i -i 'inmj r j Sr crr.l \r >-\p->' jn the Adir­ ondack 1 ; in i -Jiiiai -t with enmpcrs.

Since that experience I have no'ed three or r rur other cases, one of these being a rcrown man. Pe hips we take our sylvan sur­ roundings too much for granted, and do not really observe what we see or en'ertain sufficient in­ terest 'o care about knowing what nature's progeny are called.

Anyway, let's assume you can at least tell a live tree, but that a a few of ,he common evergreens —spruce hemlock, balsam, cedar, •\ni pine—cause confusion and mer.t being described and com­ pared. If you cannot tell spruce, hem­ lock, and balsam apart b y their bark, do so b y the tell-tale needles —technically referred to as \lea­ ves.\ Brlefry, here's how: The leaves, or needles, of the ordinary spruce are moderately long (about % of an Inch), stiff, fairly thick, curved, sharp, pointed toward the, tip of th e twig, and are on all sides of th e stem. On a hemlock the needles are •hortcr, more tender, fla'tlcr and more grooved, biunt tipped, sh.n- ng c-ark green above an d pale beneath, no t a s close together, an d mainly double-ranked rather than growing o n all sides of the twig. The needles ar e not as compact and regular as are those of the spruce. A balsam is easily identified b y its long flat, broad needles that are double-ranked, close together, extend almost straight out on each side of the stem of the twig, and are i n more regular formation than are the jumbled needles of the feathery hemlock. The leaves of the cedar are minute, scale-like, close, covering the twig b y the overlapping of alternate flat pairs. Th e twigs are flattened and tip backward like* a fern, splitting into frayed- out strips. The matted leaves have a shiny, wax-like surface. Pine trees are told by their ex­ tra long, thin needles that extend out on all sides of the stem in sheaths of twos and threes i n most cases. The Southern or Longleaf pine, of which there are several in the Adirondack*, is a tall, slender tree with 3 loose, oblong head of stout, twisted limbs. Th e slender leaves ar e from si x inches to over a foot in length, dark green, in compact tufts on the ends of the ) ranches, with three needle in each sheath extending outward. The Pitch Pine is an irregular, loose-headed tree with short trunk and gnarled limbs. The leaves are in threes, stiff, dark green, from three to five inches long, and stand out from the stem in more individual and course sheaths than is as noticeable in the South­ ern pine. The \ellow or Shortleaf pine has more slender, shorter, blue- green needles in twos and threes extending upward from short, sheaths.
