"Yakima Indian Agency, Toppenish-- Indian land leasing, an $800,000 a year volume of business in rentals on the million plus acre Indian Reservation, reached a historic milestone when bids for 58 tracts of land were opened by Harvey Muskrat, real property officer at the agency. Because of the persistent leasing problem, and in order to aid farmers to meet seasonal crop preparation deadlines, the bidding was speeded up from the customary 30-day period after announcement to 15 days. This was possible through regulations promulgated by the Secretary of the Interior through intercession of Congresswoman Catherine May, 4th District, (R_Wash)."
