WHEREAS, it appears that certain lands within the area described in the act of Congress approved March 1, 1921 (41 Stat., 1198), which have been found under the terms of said act to be chiefly valuable for the production of timber or the protection of stream flow, should be added to the Targhee National Forest in the State of Idaho;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Calvin Coolidge, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the power in me vested by the aforesaid act of Congress, entitled, “An Act To add certain lands to the Targhee National Forest,” do proclaim that the boundaries of the said national forest are hereby changed to include the following described lands in Idaho:

The withdrawal made by this proclamation shall, as to all lands which are at this date legally appropriated under the public land laws be subject to and shall not interfere with or defeat legal rights under such appropriation, while legally maintained.

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 20th day of November in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and forty-ninth.
