WHEREAS, where there are areas with large parcels of Federally-owned land, or lands held in trust under Johnson-O'Malley school contracts with the States; and

h. BE IT RESOLVED, when funds, withheld from the sale of Indian timber to meet administrative expenses, exceed actual costs that the excess shall be distributed to the Indians without unreasonable delay,
