' PAGE TIItlEE r~ r 73 "X <• V The Editor's Letter Box "1 f»i t'lr»" J/V The Overtoil Bill (To the editor:) I notice that you publish a letter In your Issue of June 24 signed by II. W. Kile. Canithersvillc, Mo. Now I propose to take Issue with Mr. Kile, first to say that t'nls Ovcrton flood bill has no pork in its provisions, as Mr. Kile suggests. He simply quotes some Republican grafter's charge. Again he mis-. stales fact. There are no lands In | the White River Valley that will produce two bales of cotton to the acre and without flood control or levees land there is almost worthless, as the land along the Mississippi river were before the build- Ing or the levees in the St. Francis district, I lived here then and live here now. Before the levees were built at least 90 per cent of the lands of Mississippi county were covered with water at each overflow and iverc almost worthless, but when 'the levees were built I'iiey tecame very valuable. The citizens llvin? nlong the overflow district were vlllliig and did give the Lavce District deeds lo the right of way for levee, purposes as they realized that they would receive great benefit from t'ne protection of the fevec system. And notwithstnndtng! the fact that Mr. Kile states thaj th c people who live in the overflow! district arc unwilling to contribute the small amount of land necessary to build a levee . that (voiild protect tiicir holdings and challenges Driver's statement, Mr. Drlv- Water . ....'. and Your Office... Concentration of the staffs of firms and industries is made possible and safe by the pure, plentiful supply of water furnished by the complete modern facilities of the Blytheville Water Company. BLYTHEVILLE WATER CO. Courteous, Personal Attention to Every Customer Plmi e 80 us s. Broadway er made lhal statement, knowing the fads nnd whether Mr. Driver contradicts the charge or not I say, knowing Hie disposition o; Die people living in Hi,, territory and w'no are Interested in the mailer, they are willing to bear their part, and 1 feel lhat Mr. Driver lias slmplj stated the facts us they exist. 1 have 'nad quite nil experience nlons this issue and have always found the people willing to contribute to advance tliclr Interests. I must say that I believe that Mr. Kile is smipiy a myth nnd that someone who wants to take a tllng lit \yll] Driver Is simply making charges lhat can't be sustained. Now If Mr. Kile wants to challenge. Ihe congressman'' to meet him and explain the whole thing lo the people w'no are Interested, let him do so and not sneak Into public prints and make assertions he cannot prove and do so during the absence of tile man whom he assails. Mr. Driver works faithfully In and out of congress for the Interest of the people he represents and understands their wants and necessities better than anyone else. He lias made u life study of conditions in , his district; - cspeclallj flood control, nnd understands the situation ijcrtectly or as well as anyone could, as he was raised In the Mississippi valley and on the banks of the Mississippi river. Besides this 'nc's practical in every- things and works from that sUind- polnl. John B. Driver Liixora, Ark. FREEMONT, O. (UP)—A. M.
