DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

Washington, April 10, 1930. Hon. LYNN J. FRAZIER, Chairman Committee on Indian Affairs,

United States Senate. MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN: Further reference is made to your request for report on Senate bill 615, which would authorize the Vintah Uncompahgre, and White River Bands of Ute Indians to bring suit in the Court of Claims. One of the principal claims to be filed under this bill would be for payment to the Indians for 1,010,000 acres of their reservation lands in Utah which were withdrawn from entry and sale and included within the Vintah National Forest.

I have to inform you that the Director of the Bureau of the Budget reports that Senate bill 615 would not be in accord with the financial program of the President, but that legislation which would restore these lands to Indian ownership and place them in an Indian forest reserve would be in accord with his financial program. Very truly yours,

Ray LYMAN WILBUR, Secretary. O
