The engineers have completed a survey of the Floyd and are presenting three alternate plans for controlling flood water. The plans involve re-channeling of the river, especially in the Sioux City area at its mouth, and dams in the .stream,'s upper regions. Cong. Hoeven is hoping that one of tlie plans will be acceptable to the Floyd Valley citizens and will be approved by a vote at this afternoon's meeting. George Eason, a prominent soil conservationist and loader of the Floyd Valley Watershed Association, also has a flood control plan including rechan- , neling projects but excluding the upper-river dams. No Dams Wanted Of the three Army plans, the one his organizatipn finds least objectionable would utilize a ' series of 28 small dams rather than fewer and larger struc- ' tures, Tliose small dam:s would' submergo less farmland than the larger ones and would be placed in positions which would allow the Floyd's tributaries to drain ono-nt-n-iime rather than all at once. Mr. Eason bolievos that dams on the upper Floyd arc unneccs- Rarv. He .'Jnys that progress in soil conservation and water \retarding has been very satisfactory during the last six years and that if improvements continue at their present rate the waters of the,upper Floyd will be controlled without, using artificial structures. Request Protection In line with liis reasoning on this matter, the .watershed association's head will offer a resolution approving of the rochan- neling plans and also the series of .small dams orovido'd' that construction of the dams is delayed until sufficient time after rechanneling is completed to, determine certainly that these water containers are necessary. Unless this resolution is accepted and incorporated into the plan, Mr, Eason doesn't believe that the plan will be accepted. The farmers are wary of putting this proect into the hands of the Army, he says. They fear the loss of precious crop acres unless some sort of protection is offered them "in writing" in the plan. J. Han sens Return From East Coast Mr. anad Mrs. John Hansen have returned from their trip to Washington, D. C, where they attended the marriage of Mrs. Hansen's nephew. James A.

Tine Alton couple also visited in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Kilburg. Mr.s, Hansen's brother, while in Washington. At Alexandria, Va., they visited Maj. and Mrs, L, P.
