They have seivod 1 notice that tbe Overtoil bill for tbe pioteclion of tbe lovvei Mis-issippi valley \vill not pass, if the> can help it, unless they can load onto it moie than a hundred million • dollars for tile" construction of reservoirs cm, llic White and Arkansas rivers. Said Miller yesterday: "If tlie Overtoil bill lidvocatcs think \vc arc goiiiff to fit idly by and KCC the lower Mississippi basin taken care of willioul ji tiling beiiiK done for tributarystreams and for slri'mns in oilier sections of Uic country, limy are goinif to be fooled badly." Tba't is equivalent to saying Hint instcail of a sound and tionslniiiivc Hood control program, baswl en needs, we must have n pork barrel program to .serve the political raiiiii'fincnts of the congressional int'inljcrsbip. I''or obviomly the' whole Hood problem is loo bijf lo be.met will; any one appropriation. Ami the stand taken by Miller and Terry is an open invitation to every congressman lo insist on gelling ripmclliiiig at once for his district, Tlie lower 'Mississippi and the St. Francis and Yaxoo basins, provided for in the Overtoil bill, are conspicuous sore spots in Hie notional Hood picture. The Overtoil bill is necessary .to complete ami; make fully effective -the great control program inangiiralcii: al'tor the 1027 disaster. Kaslorn Arkansas wtould l.m. a principal beneficiary of iU eiiactnicnt. It is not pleasant to consider tlial if it fails Hie blame will rest upon two Arkansas congressmen.
