The United States Forest Service (USFS) requested a partial revocation for PSC No. 361 created by a Secretarial Order dated October 24, 1944, which classified NFS lands for potential waterpower site Start Printed Page 37513development. The USFS also requests PLO No. 7448 be modified by removing the Federal Power Act Section 24 reservation provision noted in paragraph 1 of the Order.
