r - \VRBNKSnAT,'APRIL 27, 13451 BLYTIIEVTLLE <AKK.V COURIER NEWS 3 River Basins May Be Studied Proposed Bill Asks Survey of Arkansas, Red, White Areas I By Cliarlei Haslet WASHINGTON, April 27—(,!> Plar.ning must begin at once on how best to use every gallon o! water that falls In the Arkansas White and Red River basins am how to best save and enrich Lop snil of the region, Rep. Ocoriii Howard Wilson (D-Okla) said yes leiday. Wilson Monday introduced legis laiion to create a 13-man com mission to study and survey th three-river area and recommend coordinated program of develop ment to Congress. A similar bill has been introduce by Senator Kerr (U-Okla) and tc other senators. The commission, whose members Mingle East, would represent interested federal agencies and the -states In which the basins lie. would submit a report to Congress within two and one-half years. Investigations would he made into need for flood control, irrigation, hydroelectric power, soil conservation, navigation and recreation projects. "This nation has long tolerated and permitted the reckless exploit- aiion ol her natural resources," Wilson said. . "The territory within the drain^ age basin of the Arkansas-White and Red Rivers has been no exception to the wasteful policy of our prodigal people. Despite the devastation and the heavy toll in land and water resources, the three-river area remains one of the richest region in the world, he said, with 3T different minerals available and ? tremendous agricultural potentiality. "Add to this," he said, "the inagic ingredianl of oil and you have located within the inner circle o the United States an area poss cssing phenomenal possibilities fo the future. "Whether this area becomes wast or wonderland is a part of oil responsibility." Would Cnnrrimatf Facilities Heretofore. Wilson said, surveys uf . river basins have often been con- i lined to narrow parts nf them and have reflected the particular interests of the agency making the study. His proposal, he said, is for an overall plan of development of the entire region which would coordinate facilities of the Army Engin- t; eers. reclamation Bureau. Soil Conservation services, Power Commission, Fish and Wildlife Service and other government agencies and interested agencies in the states. The bill would give no authority lor any actual construction but would provide Congress "a pattern" on which to base future legislation for development, conservation and use of the resources. dentists Elect Officers; Oppose Medical Plan UTTI.F, ROCK.
