Fall was sentenced to penitentiary for his part in defrauding the government. . The audit, ordered by Federal "\Villiam: P.

For eight years the governmtht has sought to recover the reaervea.

The land- involved comprises 660 acres of valuable oil property In the NaVal -Reserve No. 1 In Kern county, •4. The original action charged that the land was transferred by 'order of President Harding from the jurisdiction of the navy department to the interior department, and that former S v icfetary Fall conspired with Doheny to bring about delivery of the leases for private gain of Fall.
