ed by the Commission or by Congress. When application is made for restoration of lands so reserved the Commission may order their restoration to entry or other disposition either with or without a power reservation. When application for restoration of lands otherwise reserved or classified as power-site lands is made, the Commission determines whether the value of such lands for the purposes of power development will be injured by location or entry under the public land laws, subject to a reservation of the right to use them for power development. If no injury is evident, the Commission notifies the Secretary of the Interior of its determination to that effect, who will then declare the lands open to entry, subject to the power reservation which must be included in the patent issued for such lands.

16. Accounts and Reports

The Commission may prescribe rules and regulations for the establishment of a system of accounts and the maintenance thereof by its licensees. At any time, within the discretion of the Commission, it may require them to submit reports and statements of accounts for examination, including full information as to assets and liabilities, capitalization, net investment and reduction thereof, gross receipts, interest due and paid, depreciation, and other reserves. It may also require information as to the cost of the project, cost of maintenance and operation, cost of renewals and replacements of the project works, and as to the depreciation of the project works, and as to the production, transmission, use and sale of power. The Commission may require any licensee to make adequate provision for currently determining said costs and other facts.

In states which have, through a public service commission or similar agency, established accounting systems for electrical power companies, operating as public utilities, the Commission permits such licensees to keep their accounts in accordance with such accounting systems, with such additions, if any, as may be necessary to enable them to make the reports required under the rules and regulations of the Commission.

17. Certified Copies of Records

The Commission furnished certified and noncertified copies of its records, in its discretion, upon request at scheduled fees. Such records, include photostat copies of Geological Survey maps, blue-print copies of tracings of General Land Office records, etc.

18. Field Work

The Federal Power Commission's field work is accomplished through the War, Interior, and Agriculture Departments. The United States Geological Survey supervises stream-gauging operations in connection with projects. The 22 district engineers of the Geological Survey, the 8 foresters of the Forest Service, and the district engineers of the War Department, represent the Commission in the field, and submit their reports to their respective departments for the consideration of the Commission.

19. Organization

Organization chart 42 shows the line of administrative authority in the Federal Power Commission, and enables one to see at a glance, after consulting the foregoing explanation of the Commission's activities, the most direct way of ascertaining information, or of initiating or pursuing negotiations, in water power and kindred matters. One can easily see whether to address one of the engineers indicated in column 1 or 2, or a district forester, or whether to address the Chief Counsel of the Legal Division, or the Chief Clerk of the Operations Division, etc.
