Sunday, March 3, 1935. CASPER. WYOMING THE CASPER TTUBT7NE-HERALD WYOMING FIRST Page TfcrM Homes leading State Under Adj ustment to Land Withdrawals Becomes Main Problems of Ranch Interests MARK the pass:r? of home-stcad; as a factor in the settlement and development cl except as it may apply to the co'.cnization of reclamation projects, also the end of free ran;? and graz-!r.c. upon which the state's great livestock industry was founded. These are the main developments resulting l.ut year from the enaction by ccr.:rrei's of the Taylor graz-Irj? act, which extends to the ir.ter-icr department the authority to administer half of the remaining public domain in the intere&ts cf conservation, and it means the opening of a ne-v era in the history of the west. The-re is no-' every prospect that the art will be ar.vr.ded to include all unreserved and unappropriated public land?, and Wyoming has 13.411,000 acres io affected. Under presidential order the entire area was recently withdrawn. Homes'eadinst was suspended as a natural ou'growth cf the r.ew policy and It Is extremely doubtful if the privilege which bronchi about the transfer of other million.'; of the state's public lands to priva-e ownership will ever bo restored. Only a change cf policy a sain or the possible transfer of the lands to the states at some future date will pave the way for private ownership in any substantial volume. Stat Lands Affected Adjustment cf state and private Interest.? to provisions of the new program, which calls for the execution of grazing leases, accordingly has become a bi? problem. The state is interested because it owns about 4S9.000 acres in isolated tracts not under lease, and it s'ands to lose approximately 91.000 acres segregated to the state under the Carey act for irrigation development in pend-i.-ff projects. To guard a?iinst the latUr threat the State Land department has proposed that the state negotiate a trade wi"h the Interior department under authority also granted by the Taylor act to secure the segregated lands in exchange for the isolated holdings, from which no revenue can be expected, m any event it is proposed to protest the Inclusion of segregated lands in the federal leasing prosrram until it is determined whether or r.ot they may be reclaimed by irrigation. Many Problems Presented Adjustment cf private interests to the- program also presents many problems which those charged with administration cf the act are to solve through cooperative efforts on the par." of those directly interested the livestock producers who u'lllze the range. A majority of the stockmen through their associations protested the er.acion of the measure, and many still oppose it as threatening serous dislocations of the industry, but they have joined in efforts to formulate administrative policies that will insure the most practical and equitable application of the program.

POPLAR HILLCREST WATER CO. PHONE 1151 Passes from Leasing; Act federal grazing administrator, con- aerab-e opposition was recorded ainst the organization of grazing stricts. An advisorv committee on hich every public land county In' :e state is represented wa aonoint- ed to work with the administrator on lecal range problems. Tentative boundaries cf grazing districts were fixed at a meeting last month. It was brought out that most of the 13.411,000 acres of public domain in Wyoming is situated in 12 out of 22 counties. The proportion of such lands to entire acreage runs from only one to four per cent in most agricultural counties to figures ranging from 13 to 65 per cent in ie big range sections. Fremont count v has the largest percentage public lands, while Sweetwater, .biette and B:g Hera are next in ne. The total is about one-fifth of the state's area. Range Protection Seen Rehabilitation and protection of the range, which it is contended has been damaged seriously in places by overgrazing, are purposes behind the new policy. In support of the claim that the legitimate ranch corner will be benefitted rather than injured by it, the administrator has said that -the past ten years have seen ranges occupied and commercialized by livestock whose owners had no land, escaped taxation and were able to monopolize the public rarce without regulation." The program provides that any owner of other lands may apply for a lease on six sections or 3 S4 acres of adjoining public lands, or may join with neighbors in applying for a grazing district. Prefemce in grazing permits is to be given those within or near a district who are land owners engaged in the livestock business, bona fide occupants or settlers, or owners of water and water rights. Permits will be issued for ten-year periods with the permittees having the privilege of renewal. Fences, wells, reservoirs and ether improvements necessary to the care of livestock will be permitted. Local factors and problems will be taken into consideration, including the amount of land owned by applicants, previous use cf the land, privately owned lands held under lease by applicants, amount under cultivation, tons of feed produced, and the nurr.ber cf livestock owned. Many Applications Filed Applications for leases and grazing districts already have been filed in volume, it is understood, with many overlapping claims, and the equitable adjustment and distribution of the leases must be determined. In this work local agencies will cooperate. Homes'eads cn which final proof had rot been made were not affected by the act so that patents will still be issued for a period of a fe-w years. Prospective cntrymen rushed to get their filings on record in some parts cf the state before passage of the measure. Many stockmen have accepted the policy as a constructive move looking to better range management Nominal fees only will be charged for grazing, it is promised, and onlv one-fourth cf the revenue will be retained by the government for administration. One-fourth must be spent, on range improvement and half will go to the state. Isolated tracts containing not more than 700 acres may be sold to the highest bidder. Stockmen are generally agreed that effects of the new policy will depend upon the manner cf its administration. Wild Life Sanctuaries Identified with the conservation problem is a proposal to set aside certain acreas as sanctuaries for wild life, the extension of national forest boundaxip; in nthort plans for the acquisition of sub-marginal lands to be consolidated in the general scheme. The movement contemplates efforts to gain the endorsement of the state planning board and such othr agencies as may be prevaiied upon to favor such a program. Opposition to many of Is features may be expected from livestock interests.

H. Schwartz for his diligence m this regard. "The legislature had not been in session any great length of time before it was apparent that the members had found in Mrs. Rochelle someone to whom they could turn for advice on educational legislation. This department and the schools cf Wyoming want to thank Mrs. Rochelle for the great help we received at her hands. We are also indebted to Mr. H. H. Schwartz, chairman of the educational committee cf the senate, whose farsightedness and Ipeal knowledge simplified complications tnat might otherwise have hindered progress." MOLL IS CANDIDATE FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE A former Casperite is one of 183 Democratic candidates in Detroit, Mich., for the office of circuit judge. He is Harry P. Moll, graduate of Natrona county high school and the University cf Michigan law school at Ann Arbor. His mother, Mrs. U. S. Miller, resides in Casper at 140 North Durbin street. Moll's campaign slogan, appearing cn his cards, picks out the letters of his name in black type from the words "meritorious, honest, qualified and capable." He make this appeal: "I hope you will be able to find my name among the 183 appearing cn the Democratic ballot for circuit judge." Moll was in the emplov of the Tribune-Herald during his high school days in Casper. Makes Error in Bid, Is Awarded Contract DENVER, March 2 OP) Because he made an error of $500 in his bid A. H.
