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 Apache National Forest, the Crook National Forest and the Datil 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 set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington this 23d day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred twenty five, and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and forty-eighth.
