Including lh e retirement of laiwts which are submarjjinal or not primarily suitable for mltiniMan. To tidminister the land pur;lme Iirojriim congress authorized app o I.Tiation of $.50,000.00(1 over :i three- ' year period, of which Slo.owwn has been made available this fiscal year. i I'latiN Am First Wallace said 80 ucr cent of the money to he spent for land ttiis year will be in (he Great plains | '"•'•». in wileits laid out on (lie I basis of land-use planning studies ! (Hiring the past two years. The remainder will be spent for "block- i ini* in" already existing projects in • other" parts of the country. I "During the three-year period the Important consideration in sclectine ' land for purchase will he to place | under government ownership lands v v whose uresont use is not in accord with the public welfare ami tlie v;elfare of the persons now occupying it," Wallace said. "Tlie land retired from cultivation will be used for forests, recre- •alional areas, wildlife refuges, controlled range and other pur- ixises for which it is best, suited and which ivill promote the gcner nl welfare." Each project will he selected, in cooperation with state and local agencies, so as lo permit the efficient use and administration of the land purchased, to contribute lo an improvement in economy of the entire area and to prevent the waste or misuse of the land, Wallace said. Siate Policy Important Special consideration will be given to the purchase of land in j areas zoned against, agricultural settlements, in areas where the stale is applying n vigorous policy of retaining tax-delinquent lands in public hands, with suitable conservation protection. "In lhe t Great' Plains." Wallace Faid. "considerable areas of land whiaii are definitely .subiirarginat are imccctipicd and in various .si;i"c.s of abandonment or disuse. "Many ot these lands are absentee-owned. Some are farmed one year by 'suitcase farmers' and allowed to lie idle the next. Some are completely abandoned fields or pastures. "Frequently soil drifting from lands ruins adjacent occupied lands. Public i acquisition appears to offer the only means of restoring these lands to cfficientuse —in some instances, of preventing them from being a menace (o surrounding lands." Wallace said. AH possible help will be given to families residing on land purchased to find new homes, he said. They will be helped to locate good lands. As far as the funds penult, the necessary debt adjustment, rehabilitation and related assistance will be provided, Wallace aid.
