Seek to trade Fort Irwin SACRAJIENTO fUPD-Lt. Gov. Glenn M. Anderson today urged that Fort Irwin near Barstow be given to the U.S. Army soon in exchange for federal lands elsewhere in the state. Anderson, a member of the state Lands Commission, said the commission approved a one-year lease of the state-owned property to the Army Thursday, but he urged that a permanent exchange be expedited. He said federal ownership would encourage the Army to move ahead with plans to make the fa cility a more permanent installa tion and would thus benefit surrounding communities.
