In this year leading up to Arizona's centennial, Feb. 14, 2012, we'll reprint a story or excerpts each day from the Arizona Daily Star or Tucson Citizen archives.

Nov. 10, 1912

The forest ranger, when out on detail work, will no longer be able to send into the government an expense bill of $5 per diem, is the latest ruling which went into effect October 1. It has been the custom heretofore of the forest commission to allow officers, while away from their official station on detail work, their actual expenses, exclusive of transportation, which is paid as heretofore.

The system now adopted is one of classes, the rangers, according to their positions, being designated by the class of A, B, C and D, allowing them from $3.50 to $5 per day in lieu of the subsistence and lodging, exclusive of transportation, which is paid as heretofore.
