He said that although these t|»es- iinns are covered by law.--, the laws h;wc noi yet hee'i applied in Arkansas. The policies established in connection with Ar'-'mns. therefore, ninv set "precedonU for other' water supplv projerU which mny be constructed in the future in ot'ier state-- wheir present Inflation has not been applied." the President said He added that his si.u;«cstion would not add to the delay now fn"ins the project. lie pointed out that although the House Public Vorks Committee recommended ai'thori? • of Ihe irrigation work in general it 1id not recommend an appropriation. Estimated cost of the project is S 19.000.000. BLYTHEVILLK (ARK.)
