General Interest Article
The credit for directing the attention of the public to the almost universal waste of the Nation's resources must be accorded to the late President Theodore Roosevelt. The great President was not only the originator of the movement but continued to be its most aggressive and enthusiastic apostle and promoter. The idea first found definite expression in his address before the Society of American Foresters, March 26, 1903, in which he emphasized the necessity of forest preservation and pointed out the close relationship between the forests and stream flow.
