LAND TITLES
TO BE ISSUED
New Bejrulationi of Foreitry Depart
Provide (or Giving Title to
Land Occupied
The Forest Scnrlro la calling at
tention lo a new regulation Issued
by the Secretary ot Agriculture
which should be o( very great Inter
| nt to the many concerns that have
' (instructed large Industrial plants,
? >n the National Foreats of Alaska,
i'. provides a means by which such
' oncerns may secure title to the
h inds now occupied by their plants
Li nd now held under spoclal use per
mits from the Forest Service:
The text of the regulation, which
became effective April 1, 1931, is as
follows:
Regulation L-39. Any Individ
ual, Arm or corporation which,
under authority of a special use
permit, has constructed upon Na
tional Forest lands within the
Territory of Alaska, permanent
and substantial improvements for
purposes of trade, manufacture,
or other productive Industry, with
reasonable prospects of the estab
lishment of a permanent Industry,
may nply for the elimination from
the National Forests of the lands
occupied In order that such lands
may be entered by the applicant
under the provisions of Section 10
of the Art of May 14. 1898 (30
Stat., 413). If, upon Investiga
tion. it Is determined by the Sec
retary of Agriculture that per
manent and substantial Improvo
I incuts designed for trade, manu
facture. or other productive Indus
try. exceeding In value the esti
mated value of the lands for Na
tional Forest purposes, have. In
fart, been lawfully constructed,
with reasonable prospects of es
tablishing a permanent Industry,
the elimination from the National
Forests of the lands so occupied,
not exceeding a total of eighty
acres in any single area, will be
189.x, mention**! In the regulation,
Ik inronionly known an the Trade
unci Manufacturing Site l.aw of
AlaKka. It provides that Unproved
public lands used for the purpose
o( traalc. manufacture. anil other
productive industry, may be pur
chased In units not exceeding 80
acre* at the rate of two dollars and
fifty cents per aero. This law Is not
applicable to National Forest lands,
and in order to permit Industries
which appear to be permanent and
hare heavy investments on the Na
tional Forests to make application
for purchase under this Act. the Sec
retary of Agriculture Is willing to
recommend that lands so used and
improved be eliminated from the Na
tional Forests which restores then
to the status of public lands. Ap
plications for purchase may then be,
made to the Land Office In the usual
Applications for such elimination
should he made to the District For
ester at Juneau. Forest Supervisor at
Ketchikan, or Forest Supervisor at
Cordova. Kach application should
?how by map or written description
the approximate boundaries of the
area desired, and also contain a
itatenu-nt of the character and cost
value o flmprovements. The area
and boundaries of the tract that can
be conslsteutly recommended under
the regulation will bo determined
ifter a Held examination by the For
est Service. The special provisions
? ?r the Trade and ManQfaeturlng Site
l^tw should be thoroughly under
stood before applications for elimin
ation are made to the Forest Service.
The importance of this regulation
can be gained from the fact that
Hfly-Ove salmon packing plauts
alone are now under pormits on the
National Forests, and many of them
nrje doubtless within tho Intent of
Its provisions.
Forest Service officials point out
that agricultural lands li: the Na
tional Forests have long been sub
ject to entry and patent, and the
purpose of this regulation Is to offor
the same Inducements to the develop
ment of the Industrial projects as Is
offered to agriculiura (development.

Stanley O. Thomas of Sitka wax
appointed deputy U. 8. muriitinl at
that place, and H. D. Campbell was
appointed deputy U. 8. marshal at
Wrangell by United State* Marshal
0. Beaumont, who returned today on
the Alameda from Ketchikan after
inaklDK a trip of Inspection through
this part of the division. No changes
have yet been made at Kutchlkan,
Hydcr. Skagwuy and Haines.
Stanley Thomas la well known In
(he vicinity of Sitka and a prom
inent figure there. He haa a splen
did war record for hi* work in
KYance with the !0th Knglneers, in
which regiment he ecllsted during
the early part of tho United States'
entrance In the World War.
II. D. Campbell la an oldtlmc Al
askan and haa lived hi Wrangell for
years.
Discussing the appointments. Mar
-hau Beaumont said: "Kvery man I
put In office must enforso the law."
lie makes this statement In answer
to Inquiries of tho people of thla
division as to his attitude toward the
bootlegging situation. "Thla office
proposes to play the gamo square

HIGH LIFE TO
BE EXPOSED
Arbuckle Trial Expected to Result
in Sensational Revelations
and Exposures
Ixm Angeles.? "High life." as It
In lived by some members of tlx- Dim
colony hr-ru and In other cities along
the roaiit. probably will be bared at
the murder trial of Itoscoe (Fatty)
Arbuckle. the screen comedian, un
der arrest In San Francisco.
Arbuckle la held In connection
with the death of Miss Virginia
Kuppe. movie actress. who died fol
lowing a riotouH party In ArbnckleV
rooms at a San Francisco bote).
Possibilities that other member
of ths Dim colonies may be drawn
into the Arbuckle scandal as wit
nesses Is expected to bring about
several hasty departures from the
coast.
Any companies planning to "shoot
pictures" on distant locations these
days have no difficulty In rounding
up volunteers.
Hollywood. Uio film colony near
I am Angeles. Is typical of the rest.
It abounds with those who have
sprung Into fame and wealth almost
overnight by means of the sliver
sheet.
Also It abounds with girls whose
visions of fame have burned out.
who are without resources, and who
become easy prey to men of much
means and low morals.
It Is largely because of this typr
of screen nctor and the sycophants
who trail them that Hollywood and
other fllm colonies along the coast
have become widely known as places
where they "hit only tho high spots "
Movies Boom City
The movie* "mndo" Los Angclrs.
When the Dim Influx began there a
ile?igr uk<>. U? Angeles hud a pop
ulation of only a little more thnn
300.000. Today It hai Jumped to
nearly 600,000 and la the tenth larg
est'cily In the country and far above
the average In wealth.
Yet the golden-handed movie men
always have found opposition among
the Los Angeles old resldenters.
When the mushroom movie mil
lionaire* applied for cards at the old
I .on Angeles eluba, they wore turned
down. When the wealthy Mara tried
to pry their way Into Pasadena. the
exclusive aeetlon In which are lo
cated the homes of many rteh fami
lies of secure social (.landing, they
found progress impossible.
So the movie men built their own
cluba and formed their own circle
of aoclety. They built their homes
in another auburb. Hollywood, which
la today almost an exclusive colony
of movie people, and which la as
woll, If not better, known the world
over than Los America through the
work of the film companies.
Revels Figure in Suits
Certain resorts and roadhousea and
hotels within automobllo distance of
Holly wood becamc noted ? or notor
ious.
Revela, nearly always marked by
the presence of girls, were numer
ous. These revels have figured In
many divorce aults, which have been
tried In Los Angeles -and elsewhere
? as far away as New York and
I'arla.
Gambling, too, has run wild, those
able to do so often playing for high
stakes. Arbuckle has had quite a
reputation for his ability to win at
irapahootlng.

Every business, calling and pro
fenxion In Juneau, with the possible
exception of hoo'legglng. was repre
sented at the Commercial Aiuioriatlnn
liinrlieon held at The Uetn Thursday.
It may have been due to the pres
unec of the Chautauqua girls that
there wiu such a generous turnout
such a spontaneous exhibition of
? (immunity spirit ? for the girls
were there in all their youth anil
loveliness, and fortunate, indeed, was
the staid and steady buslnea* or
professional man whose seat by
chance ? or was It otherwise? was
between two of then). Rut after all.
the large turnout was more likely
due to the fart that the Commercial
\NWM-latlon is becdming more and
more popular as Its activities are
coming to be recognized as most po
tential in advancing the interest*,
not only of Juneau, but of Alaska In
reneral and the southeastern por
