an. appeal by the state from the judg
ment of the District Court allowing the

ciated with the Weyerhaeuser, on No

along the Payette River. Later Hoover,
manager of the Payette Lumber Com
pany, a Weyerhaeuser subsidiary com
pany purchased other land In the vi
cinity from the state.

leases the land for timber-cutting only.
If the timber Is not cut within 20 years,
title to the land and uncut timber re
