MALOV C'nlted Pwss' Staff Correspondent .LITTLE ROCK, )Uk., Jan. 4 (UP)— Establishmentof stale forests so the state can receive some revenue from three to five million acres of delinquent lax. land .was recommends! today by State Forester 'Charles A. Oilleit in his first annual report, to GOT. J. M. Fulrell. A bill to lie presented in the 1935 legislature already is bein? drawn lo carry out that proposal, .it was learned. . ^ First the governor would be given authority to set aside forest lands which have or will revert to the state for taxes, as yiale forests, game refuges or recreational areas. Some of Ihe areas may l:e good for commercial iorests, some for watershed pio duction and some for game propagation, it is .conceived.' Revenue from this land would lie divided between the county and state governments en ratios to bn fleterminrd in the legislature or by a'commission. • The^main idea being to. : get revenue'.from land which now" is paying nothing, it . lias . taen .suggested the .county In ._whl<;li',..the , forest, is located re""'•-"='*•-•• ccnt* v of the revgnne . , "— "There J are no state ': forests- 5 in Arkansas..

It is cqnteniplated that acreage adjacent the 'tkx delinquent land reverted to tile state might also be included ta^the area. . The stale . has no' money,, to purchase the adjacent lux-free' land but a plan is proposed whereby Hie state would take over delinquent' tax land in national , forest reserve areas and exchange it to the national forest commission i'Jr lanil which . the national commission would buy to help block out the stale forests. The situation is rather enigmatic. Some of the land which is included in the national forest areas actually is not owned by the na- floilal. body but under Its Immediate protection and sought for permanent supervision.
