(Signed) A. P. KNUCKEY, Chairman. RAY McGRATH, HENRY MASSAR, Commissioners. Dated March 6, 1923. STATE LAND Colorado’s Land Is Still Not Quite Half Patented But Will Be by End of 1923. The combined nutional forest, state land and homestead land areas of the state at the beginning of 1923 amount ed to 24,195,650 acres, or 36.46 per cent of the total area of the state, ac cording to compilations made by the State Immigration Department for use in the 1923 edition of the Colorado Year Book. At the same time the patented land area of the state amoun ted to 32,192,022 acres, or 48.52 per cent of the total area. The remainder, amounting to 9,953,446 acres, of 15.02 per cent of the total area, consists of government land temporarily with drawn from entry, national parks and monuments, Indian land, homestead land tlrat has been entered and not yet proved up and state land that has been sold but not yet paid for and patented. The amount of state land sold and not yet patented is approximately 770,- 000 acres. The area of national parks and mounments in the state is approx imately 318,000 acres and the area of Indian lands within the state is ap proximately 396,000 acres. This leaves approximately 8,469,000 acres of gov ernment land temporarily withdrawn from entry and homestead land that has been entered but not yet proved up. By far the greater part of this is homestead land now in the process of being proved up. About one-half of the classified pat ented land in the state is national for ests. The total national forest area is 13,290,354 acres, or 20 per cent of the total urea. The open homestead I urea is 7,951,963, or 11.98 per cent of the state’s area, and the unapproprrat- I ed state land is 2,953,340 lucres, or 4.45 1 per cent of the area. Homestead and state land area are decreasing stead- I ily each year, though not very rapid- Ily at the present time. The patent ed area is increasing rather rapidly and will be more than one-lialf the total area of the state at the begin ning of 1924. In that part of the state lying east of the mounturns more than 85 per cent of the land is patented and in some counties as high as 95 per cent. Unpatented land in this district con sists chiefly of state land, homestead I land not yet proved up and a small ! amount of unentered homestead land, j The national forest ureas are found I chiefly in the counties in the central part of the state, while most of the remaining homestead area is on the J western slope. Only one county, Rio I Blanco, has as much as 50 per cent of ' its area yet open to homestead entry, i but several counties in the mountain j ous districts have more than 50 per cent of their area included in the na i tional forest areas, the largest per ' centage being 93, in Mineral county.

Advance information of the Army Appropriation Act shows that the budget for Citizens’ Military Training 1 Camps has been materially reduced. ! This has made necessary a reduction in the number of men that can be ac i cepted for training at the camps this : summer. The quota for the Eighth | Corps Areu which includes the States !of Texas, Oklahoma. Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, has been reduced from 3600 to 2800. Under this quota the allotment to the camps in the Corps Area has been changed as follows: to Fort Sam Hous ton, Texas —1100 instead of 1600 as originally planned; to Ft. Sill, Okla homa—looo instead of 1200; to Fort Ix>gan, Colorado —500 instead of 600. The assignment of 200 students to the camp at Ft. Hauchuca, Arizona is the only one that remains unchanged in the Corps. Due to this reduction of almost 25 per cent it is expected that many j more applications will be received in the Corps Area than can be accepted. It is therefore advisable for young men who desire to attend the camps ,to make request for application as early as possible. If applicants are otherwise qualified, their acceptance will be determined by date their ap plication is received. For information or application blanks, write to C. M. T. C. Officer, Bth Corps Area, Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. Snow Storm. Umar and the surrounding country was visited today by a general snow storm and while it may do a million dollars worth of good, it came in such a blinding wind to be almost that much bother to those who had to travel in it. The mercury fell rapidly and our citizens found themselves after a winter time of summer weather sud denly facing winter in springtime. Didn't Mean It!
