Would Build Camps In Arkansas, Oklahoma, Instead Of California WASHINGTON, Mar. 11. |UI>>— California congressmen opposed lo construction of federal migrant camps loday proposed creation of reclamation and housing projects in Arkansas and Oklahoma as a solution lo the migratory labov problem. Represent alive Alfred J.'Elliott <Dem,, Calif.), who snld he spoke for halt of the California congressional delegation, said California's problem could not be solved by migrant camp construction "because it makes California too attractive." He proposed creation of projects in the home stales of lhc "Arkles" and "Okies", which would Induce migrants lo leave California mid influence others not to come. Elliott favored a resolution .sponsored by Representative John Tolau (Dem., Calif.) to Investigate "Intor- jtatc migration of destitute citizens" but thought there was little chance of successfully opposing construction of camps planned for two California elite;. This week he plans to Introduce a bill to divert some of the funds .or camp construction lo the support of school districts in which the camps will be located. "It does no good'to build migrant camps," he said, "because that merely draws lit more out of state workers. They come because California pays higher wages and higher relief and has better social benefits Ihnn other, states. They know they will be taken care of. Whole communities from Oklahoma, Arkansas and other slates Dick-up and lea<"e v 'bpciius(f ! their, Brothers or .uncles or friends UT||C Ihetii Hint they can get taken :are of in California'.

"But if their land wasn't depleted so they couldn't make a living and f they had decent places to live it home most of them wouldn't eave. That Is Ihe thing to get at. I Once a program of reclamation nnd housing providing many Jobs Is. started ami It became known among Hie migrants a lot of them . would leave California."
