Commissioner Fred Dennett of tlu> General Land Office at Washington has sustained Gen. I'rescott In a rul ing in regard to double assignments of desert land entries. Entrymcn who took one or more assignments prior to March 28, 1908, will be protected In their rights, although the present, law does not allow this course. •-'Commissioner Dennett says: "The act ot March 28, 1908, provides that no person may take a desert entry by assignment, unless qualified to enter ■ the tract thus assigned to him.

Imperial Valley Press. VOL. VIII. READY FOR TREES ON COUNTY ROADS Settlers Eager to Begin Plant ing, But Details of Dis tribution Are Not Worked Out, The Press plan for getting the high ways of the county lined with trees, adopted by the Supervisors, is ap proved heartily by the settlers, who are eager to do their part and already have- made applications for enough trees to line 100 miles of road.

It seems Important to the board that an elaborate set of rules and regula tions be formulated before trees are distribut...
