much of the work of clearing the drift wood and rubbish from Laguna dam had been done under the personal supervision of Supt. of the Dam Jack Levake, and that everything went along 'smoothly in every department while he was on his vacation. In connection with the new pumping station, one of the first improvements ordered by Manager Lawson after taking charge of the affairs of the project, here's a .good one on my friend, Arizona Charlie Meadows: Before the new pumping plant was put in operation all the water for the "high lands" in upper Yuma valley was pumped direct from the river. This was so thick with sand, mud and cilt that it was filling up the ditches about as fast as they could be cleaned out. Mr. Lawson's attention was' called to it just about the day he took charge of the project. "I'll remedy that right away," he said to Arizona Charlie. Manager Lawson, Major L. C. Scherer, of the 8th U. S. cavalry, Assistant Project Manager Ray Priest, Lieutenant Sampson, and yours truly for good measure, went to Laguna dam, so the army officer could see its beauties and wonders v Major Scherer is eng route to El Paso from Manila, his regiment having just changed posts with the 15th Cavalry that pass ed through Yuma last Sunday. He will be here a day or two the guest of the local army post, being entertained last night by 'Lieut. C. L. Sampson. LOS' ANGELES, Sept. 29.
