Mr. WAGNER, from the Committee on Public Land and Surveys,

submitted the following

REPORT

[To accompany 8. 1065)

The Committee on Public Lands and Surveys, to whom was referred the bill (S. 1065) to further extend the period of time during which final proof may be offered by homestead entrymen, having carefully considered same, report favorably thereon with the following amendment which was suggested by the Secretary of the Interior:

Insert the words and desert land” between the last two words of the title.

Facts concerning the proposed legislation are set forth in the favorable report of the Secretary of the Interior, under date of February 8, which is herewith attached and made a part of this report.

INTERIOR DEPARTMENT,

Washington, February 8, 1935. Hon. ROBERT F. WAGNER, Chairman Committee on Public Lands and Surveys,

United States Senate. MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: I have received your letter of January 18, with which you enclosed a copy of S. 1065, a bill to further extend the period of time during which final proof may be offered by homestead entrymen.

The bill proposes to further amend the act of May 13, 1932 (47 Stat. 153), as amended by the act of June 16, 1933 (48 Stat. 274), by striking out December 31, 1934, and inserting in lieu thereof December 31, 1935.

The proposed amendment would make the act read as follows:

“That the Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized to extend for not exceeding two years the period during which annual or final proof may be offered by any person who has à pending homestead or desert-land entry upon public lands of the United States on which at the date of this Act or any date on or prior to December 31, 1935, under existing law, annual or final proof is required, showing residence, cultivation, improvements, expenditures, or payment of pur

chase money as the case may be: Provided, That any such entryman shall be required to show that it is a hardship upon himself to meet the requirements incidental to annual or final proof upon the date required by existing law due to adverse weather or economic conditions: And provided further, That this Act shall apply only to cases where adequate relief is not available under existing law.

“SEC. 2. The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to make such rules and regulations as are necessary to carry out the purposes of this Act."

It is apparent that the benefits of the proposed bill are intended to be made available to desert land entrymen as well as to homestead entrymen. I therefore recommend that the words and desert land” be inserted between the last two words of the title so as to make same read as follows: To further extend the period of time during which final proof may be offered by homestead and desert land entryman.

The contemplated relief appears meritorious, and I therefore recommend that the bill be enacted into law. Sincerely yours.

HAROLD L. ICKES,

Secretary of the Interior. O
