You are naturally interested and concerned over the legislative bill introduced by Senator Hughes, providing that the College of Forestry be continued as a contract college, operated by Syracuse University, the latter serving as representative of the Education Department.
A copy of Senator Hughes' bill is attached. The purpose of this statement is to appraise the bill and estimate its implications, including both the advantages and disadvantages of the proposed arrangement to our College and its students and faculty.
