Transcript have the methods for surveying these forces been worked out. What the Academy of Sciences has done in this matter is only a drop in the bucket. Still there are numerous branches of economy in this country whose development is retarded by the absence of cheap power. Such power can be supplied by the wind if proper wind motors are produced. Forest Wealth of the U.S.S.R. I shall now speak of our forests as a source of power, as one of the basic items in the national wealth of our Union which, by the way, plays also an important role in our export trade. Yet the question of our forest wealth has been studied even less than any other question relating to our natural resources. In fact, our knowledge of our forest wealth is altogether meagre. It is assumed in a general way that our timber resources are enormous, that we have huge areas covered with forests in the U.S.S.R. But the available information about the forest resources at our disposal is full of contradictions. According to some data, the U.S.S.R. possesses 640 million hectares (180 million in the European part and 460 million in the Asiatic part of our Union), out of the world's total forest area of 3,034 million hectares, or roughly speaking, we own from one-fourth to one-fifth of the world's timber supplies. According to other data, on January 1, 1924, the forest area of the U.S.S.R. was set down as 921,838,000 ha., of which about 600 million ha. are conveniently located for lumbering. These contradictory data are due to the feeble study of our forest resources. There was little light shed on most important questions, like the question of density of forests, which is essential for the assessment of our forest wealth, 53
