SWING DEFENDS PROPOSED SALE Only Way To Recoup Cost Of Imperial Outlays, Treaty Foe Says WASHINGTON. Feb. 13, A Californian opposing a United States-Mexico water treaty on the ground it would deprive hi3 state of needed water, agreed today to a California organization proposed sale to Mexico of Colorado river waters. He asserted, however, the international boundary commissioner approved the offer. Chairman'Connally (D.-Tex.) outlined to the senate foreign relations committee yesterday a proposal by the Imperial Irrigation District of California that Mexico pay it $339,850 annually in perpetuity on the basis of 800,000 acre feet of water delivered yearly by the district's subsidiary, the Mexican Companla. The chairman then asserted the Irrigation district was the chief opponent of the treaty guaranteeing Mexico free delivery of 1,500.000 acre feet of the Colorado's flow annually "because they are afraid their revenues would be cut If It is ratified." Tipton Aid Connally R. J. Tipton, Denver, Colo., engineer representing ths six states committee (Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Texas), which favors the treaty, supported Connally today. He asserted that opposition comes primarily from two groups: the Implrial Irrigation district, whose revenues he said would be cut off, and California holders of "Junior priorities" on Colorado river waters. Phil D. Swing, former representative from California, told the committee that I N. Lawson, international boundary commissioner, was informed and "gave his approval" to the Irrigation district's offer to sell water to Mexico. He Bald that although the document Introduced by Connally was "substantiated,': Its translation had been "bungled In Wo or three places." To Recoup Outlays "It was considered to be the only means by which farmers of the Imperial valley could get back any part of the $8,000,000 Invested ... In canals and levies." Swing aid. Rates quoted Mexico In the document, he maintained, were "for use of the district's properties," and termed them a "service charge." One of the "Junior priorities" referred to by Tipton Is held by the city of San Diego. The interior department recently allotted It 112,-000 acre feet annually from the Colorado to meet impending shortage!. Priorities 'Vulnerable' The engineer told the committee these priorities were "very vulnerable" whether there Is a treaty or rot, explaining their fulfillment Is dependent on distribution of surplus waters of the Colorado which, under the Colorado river compact, can not be made until 100.1. Mexican rights to Colorado water, he also argued, have precedence over the junior priorities under the compact's terms. Among other statements by Tipton in reply to treaty opponents were these: It is necessary to limit the amount of water Mexico can use at the lowest possible amount, which the treaty does. Mexico Demand Halved The water guaranteed Mexico Is less than half that which Mexican treaty negotiators first demanded. The treaty does not violate terms of the Boulder Canyon project act. The treaty will not Interfere with generation of power at Boulder dam. The treaty will make It easier for the Imperial irrigation district to be paid for Its facilities used by Mexico and protection of that district from floods will be more adequate because the pact is backed by the two governments. A clause which would permit the United States to curtail deliveries of water to Mexico in event of extraordinary drought would provide much more protection to this country than a similar provision in the 1906 Rio Grande treaty with Mexico. 11 MORE ARIZONA SOLDIERS KILLED WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. .P) The war department made public today the names of 11 Arizona soldiers killed In action in the European area.

Smith, alias "Arthur Curtiss James Jr.," who already has spent 24 out of the past 32 years in prison for offenses involving bad checks, pleaded guilty in U. S. District Court yesterday to violation of the Mann Act, and was sentenced to two years in prison. He faces additional years of prison in California. "He is one of the most unfortunate fellows I have ever met in my life," Samuel H. Fowler, local attorney appointed by Judge Albert M. Sames to represent the prisoner, told the court. "Although not a vicious man, he got the bad habit of writing checks on banks in which he has no money," said the attorney, referring to Smith's long prison record. Neurotic, Says Lawyer Fowler said that Smith probably has neurotic tendencies and that years in prison may have warped his mind. He asked the court for a suspended sentence, to let the defendant return to California to face charges as a parole violator. Smith came to Tucson last November from Los Angeles on a railroad pass to work here as a switchman, said Fowler, but instead of bringing his wife in accord with the terms of the pass, brought another woman, Geraldine Ann Gillig. Speaking for himself,, the prisoner told of his convictions in California, Oregon and New, York, stating that as fast as he was released on "parole" from one prison he was picked up and taken into court to be sentenced again on" another check charge. No Bargaining At first he was unwilling to plead guilty except with the understanding that he would get a suspension of sentence and be returned to California to face "ten- black years" in prison as a parole violator. The Judge Insisted that there could be no bargaining with the court. "The record and your own statements indicate to the court that this is not a case for probation," Judge Sames said in passing sentence, and stated that the California authorities can take the sentence into consideration when the defendant faces them.- LEGISLATOR ABELS EXPLAINS HIS VOTE PHOENIX, Feb. 13. () Con tinuing his campaign against the free use of the emergency clause in legislation, Rep. Charles Abels Maricopa, explained his ' vote in favor of the bill to remove the necessity for notarization of state income tax returns as follows: "This bill is of utmost importance to cattlemen and carries the emergency clause, therefore I must vote aye." Last week Rep. Jack Cummard, Maricopa, attempted to amend a routine bill carrying the emergency clause to make it read "for the relief of the cattlemen." REP. BELL FAVORS COUSIN CONNALLY PHOENIX, Feb. 13. IP) Rep. Cecil Bell, Maricopa, arose today in the house of representatives to speak in favor of a motion to include the remarks of U. S. Senator Tom Connally on the U. S.-Mexico water treaty in the house journal. Bell said: "In honor and respect to my honorable and distinguished cousin from the great state of Texas, I trust that this newspaper item (a Washington dispatch) will be inserted in the journal of the house." Bell confirmed later that Connally is his cousin. BUGS CLEANED and REJUVENATED Onr prompt and efficient service assures yon of complete satisfaction. UNIT LAUNDRY and ' DRY CLEANERS Phone 41 200 E. Seventh Gin Lem Accused Of Selling Liquor To Tucson Juveniles Gin Lem of the Tom. Wing grocery store, Simpson street and Convent avenue, was arrested oharged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor yesterday, accused of se lling and cigarettes to a group of six juveniles arrested late the previous evening. Later in the dav he was arraigned in superior court. The juveniles were arrested after one of their number, charged with assault and battery, attacked a woman on West Mission street near Mission road, police said. The remaining five of the group were charged with drunkenness. All were remanded to superior court authorities in police court jester-day. A John Doe warrant was issued for Lem yesterday afternoon by Judge Evo" De Concini of superior court No. 2. Accompanied by several of the youths, officers had previously visited the place and the juveniles had identified Lem as the man who sold them liquor and cigarettes the previous evening. Implication of a contributory delinquency charge, according' to Deputy County Attorney Carlos Robles, is that the man charged caused juveniles to commit, or attempt, an offense which they would not have otherwise. According to Barnev Armstrong, motorc-cle offi cer who was one of the arresting policemen, the juveniles were obviously under-age. Lem, brought before Judge De Concini just before court closed yesterday, pleaded not guilty. Trial was set for March 22 and bond at $250. Arresting officers, in addition to Armstrong, were Joe Hill, motorcycle officer, and Coy Beasley of the Arizona Highway Patrol. Two additional juveniles, charged with larceny from an automobile, were remanded to county juvenile authorities during police court yes-terdar. They were arrested early in the morning on South Third avenue near the Southern Pacific parking lot, where they were found sitting in an automobile which did not belong to them, police said. In their possession were found 41 gas ration stamps, a .45 caliber revolver, a leather memo pad, and tools believed to have been taken from the glove compartment of the vehicle. Charles Dickens said that, with luck, it was possible on a damp day to get a light in a half hour by the flint-steel method of those days. Present-day men ' and women require 14 matches a day, which would add up to seven hours on damp days in Dickens' times. DM 2312 N.

ARIZONA SLATED FOR 2 HUGE DAMS First Steps Taken; One To Be At Bridge Canyon; Cost $540 Millions WASHINGTON, Feb. 13. m The Reclamation Bureau announced a definite step today toward construction of two huge dams in Arizona which would rival in size to giant Boulder project. The two structures would serve the multiple purpose of checking the flow of silt into Lake Mead, storing water for diversion purposes, and generating hydro-electric power. Preliminary studies for their possible construction on the Colorado River above Grand Canyon, together with diversion works to carry water to central Arizona, was announced by the reclamation bureau. Under the tentative plans, one of the dams would be erected at Bridge Canyon at a cost of $207,-000.000 with a generating capacity of 375,000 kilowatts. Details of the second structure were not announced but .the Colorado-Phoenix diversion project would cost $333,000,000 and would carry water , to the Salt River Valley in central Arizona. It would generate 711,000 kilowatts. Reclamation bureau officials said the plans and surveys for the projects were a part of a proposed over-all program for development of the resources of the Colorado River basin.
