P. White, Jr., is on the threshold of realization and that before the year is out, the actual purchase of county hill lands will be made as a nucleous of the first county forest in the nation. In October, 1944 Commissioner White presented a resolution to the Fiscal Court, outlining the plans for a forest project and naming Tom Wallace, chairman; Eugene Stuart, Henry Baass, W. A. Coffee, Henry J. Stites and Harold Moser, a committee to investigate the feasability, the cost, size and location of a county forest as a War Memorial honoring the heroes of World War II.
