Whereas, in the interest of economy of administration, it appears that certain lands in the State of Idaho heretofore embraced in the Idaho National Forest as fixed and defined by Executive Order of June 26, 1908 (No. 855), and Proclamations of March 23, 1912, and December 27, 1919, should be transferred to and made parts of the Payette National Forest as fixed and defined by Proclamation of June 3, 1905, Executive Order of June 26, 1908 (No. 856), Proclamation of June 30, 1911, Executive Order of July 26, 1916 (No. 2429), and Proclamation of December 27, 1919, and certain other lands should be transferred to the Salmon National Forest as fixed and defined by Executive Order of June 26, 1908 (No. 841), and Proclamation of May 19, 1913; also that lands from the Payette National Forest should be transferred to the Idaho and Salmon National Forests.
Now, therefore, I, Calvin Coolidge, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by the Act of Congress approved June 4, 1897 (30 Stat., 11 at 34 and 36), do proclaim that the boundaries of the Idaho National Forest, the Payette National Forest, and the Salmon National Forest are hereby changed and that they are now as shown on the diagrams hereto annexed and forming parts hereof.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington this 24th day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-six, and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and fiftieth.
