The bill, urged by Governor Beauford H. Jester, and strongly supported by Senator Rogers Kcl- L\y of this district, passed the Senate finally without amendments. The Good Neighbor Commission has been represented In various phases- of U. S.-Mcxlco relations since its establishment, including the recently inaugurated f a r m labo · agreement ^between ,ho two n 'S. mal gns service was restored, but ity officials hoped to establish wnter connoction today for unitary purposes, Officials reported that tho food and milk situation, described ns rltioal yesterday, waw relieved by arrival of emergency supplies.

Others had been akoii in by friends. 1 The raging waters spewed mud rom five Inches to two feet thick n hundreds of residences' in the lortherly section of the" city ai)d mttered foundations in some roas. Unofficial estimates of damage an as high as $2,000,000. Considcr- xble of that was in crop destruc- lon and residential property wreckage. The business section escaped undamaged.

"Certainly the Valley would not vnnt to uao tho residue of the Rio Grande." Lawson declared that powei, lovolopnionb In connection with tho dlam construction project is tho dental, «o far us the commission is concerned. Irrigation is thi primary purpose.

'Senator Taft would call this an adjustment. I would call it a traflc recession or depression. There is nothing novel and nothing worthy about, getting 1 a price collapse through reducing the demand. That Is the typical road to b, depression." The President said Tuft's economic philosophy "follows the old idea, of boom and bust." For h s own part, Mr. 'Truman added, ,1 utterly reject this defeatist economic philosophy/' believing "in maintaining a lull employment, full production economy."
