STATUTE

      The Secretary of the Interior shall make and publish such rules
    and regulations as he may deem necessary or proper for the use and
    management of the parks, monuments, and reservations under the
    jurisdiction of the National Park Service, and any violation of any
    of the rules and regulations authorized by this section and
    sections 1, 2, and 4 of this title shall be punished by a fine of
    not more than $500 or imprisonment for not exceeding six months, or
    both, and be adjudged to pay all cost of the proceedings. He may
    also, upon terms and conditions to be fixed by him, sell or dispose
    of timber in those cases where in his judgment the cutting of such
    timber is required in order to control the attacks of insects or
    diseases or otherwise conserve the scenery or the natural or
    historic objects in any such park, monument, or reservation. He may
    also provide in his discretion for the destruction of such animals
    and of such plant life as may be detrimental to the use of any of
    said parks, monuments, or reservations. No natural,(!1)
    curiosities, wonders, or objects of interest shall be leased,
    rented, or granted to anyone on such terms as to interfere with
    free access to them by the public: Provided, however, That the
    Secretary of the Interior may, under such rules and regulations and
    on such terms as he may prescribe, grant the privilege to graze
    livestock within any national park, monument, or reservation herein
    referred to when in his judgment such use is not detrimental to the
    primary purpose for which such park, monument, or reservation was
    created, except that this provision shall not apply to the
    Yellowstone National Park: And provided further, That the Secretary
    of the Interior may grant said privileges, leases, and permits and
    enter into contracts relating to the same with responsible persons,
    firms, or corporations without advertising and without securing
    competitive bids: And provided further, That no contract, lease,
    permit, or privilege granted shall be assigned or transferred by
    such grantees, permittees, or licensees without the approval of the
    Secretary of the Interior first obtained in writing.
