U S. GETS LAND AT$U0 ACRE Large Acquisitions for National Forests Approved LANDHOLDERS GLUM Only 429 Acres Approved For Addition to Nantahala Purchases of forest land totaling 443,90878 acres at an average price of $1.70 per acre- w;ere approved at a meeting of the national forest reservation commission in Washing ton last Friday, according to an announcement received from the U. S. department of agriculture. The list of approved acquisitions for the federal forests included only 42 acres for the Nantahala forest, at a. total price of $' ,214.25, or an average .of $2.92 an acre. All of this' property is in Clay county, it was learned at the headquarters of the forest in Franklin. S;.Fevrr Offer Received heriinTcha ws-are beingrxon sidered for the Nantahala unit, but forestry officials have been some what disappointed at the few offers they have received. Under the government's new acquisition plan, millions of dollars have been made, available to expand the forests, but word has been sent out that - the money will be spent where it can buy the most. No definite appro priation has been set aside for any particular forest, so that land spec ulators would be unable to take advantage of the government. , Landowners Disappointed Owners of mountain property in Macon county are frankly disap pointed at the prices . the govern ment is paying, although the aver age is higher in this section than , in many other parts of the country. Few are willing to sell even rough, untillable mountain land for two to lhreedollars an acre. Hitherto, - prices in this section have ranged around $3.50 an acre for national -- forest acquisitions The 4 announcement from the de- partmentfgricuItuTerwhicir-has-supervision over the forestry ser- vice, said - that - the- government's -emergency conservation program will be extended .to - manv of ,th e- areas embraced in new purchase a i 1 soon, a s. jh ey ..are.def initely ac-I quired. That will mean the estab lishment of additional conservation camps in the, forests which are ex panded to any considerable extent. The acquisitions approved for the . Nantahala forest comprised the smallest tract added to any of the government's 28 national forests, except one, only 128 acres having been approved for the Natural Bridge forest in Virginia.

To Permit Railway Freight Surcharges The Interstate Commerce Corn mission today directed seven sutes which had refused to permit sur charges on freight bills to allow . the railroads to make such levies.

These states, together with sev eral others not mentioned, declined to authorize the railroads within their borders to apply surcharges authorized -. for - interstate - com- merce.
