Section 16 of Order No. 2508, as amended, is further amended to delete paragraph (c), which contains authority for the fixing of fair stumpage value of the annual timber cut of the former Menominee Reservation, Wis.; and to redesignate the succeeding paragraphs, so that section 16, in its entirety, now reads as follows:

hereunder shall be subject to appeal to the Secretary in accordance with section 1 of this order.
