Whereas by an Executive order of June 13, 1907, officers and employees of the Forest Service and Biological Survey in the Department of Agriculture were authorized to accept appointments to certain State and Territorial positions, and it appears that the work of that Department would be facilitated by an extension of the provisions thereof, I desire to give public notice that hereafter, with the approval of the Secretary of Agriculture, other officers and employees of that Department are authorized to hold State and Territorial positions, and State and Territorial officials, unless prohibited by law, may be permitted to receive appointments under the Department of Agriculture, when in either case the Secretary of Agriculture deems such employment necessary to secure a more efficient administration of the duties of his Department.
