          and other lands by the growth, spread, and development of the
          poisonous weed known as Halogeton glomeratus, it shall be the
          policy of the Federal Government, acting independently or in
          cooperation with the several States and political subdivisions
          thereof, private associations and organizations, and individuals,
          to control, suppress, and eradicate this weed, poisonous to
