Post, p. 470.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That sections 5, 8, 17, and 20 of township 30 north, range 2 west, of the Gila and Salt River base and meridian, Arizona, on the public domain, be, and the same are hereby, permanently reserved as an addition to the Havasupai Indian Reservation. This withdrawal is made subject to valid existing rights of any persons thereto initiated prior to August 29, 1940, the date on which these lands were temporarily withdrawn from further disposition by the Secretary of the Interior pending the enactment of legislation adding them to the Havasupai Indian Reservation.
The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to exchange lands within the area described in section 1 with the State of Arizona for all or a portion of the State-owned lands identified as sections 28 and 29, township 30 north, range 2 west, and the west half section 32, township 31 north, range 2 west, Gila and Salt River base and meridian. The lands received from the State under such exchange shall become a part of the Havasupai Indian Reservation.
The Secretary of the Interior is hereby authorized, in his discretion, to purchase certain improvements on the State-owned lands from the lessee of said lands, at a price to be agreed upon by and between the contracting parties. The sum of $11,100, or as much thereof as may be necessary, is hereby authorized to be appropriated, out of any funds in the United States Treasury not otherwise appropriated, to purchase said improvements.
Approved, March 4, 1944.
