Neighbors Lend Helping Hand to Coalter Family The kind of ncijfhborlincs.s which is Hie cement Uint holds a community together was displayed when a fire left iMrs. [J. G. Coalter and her three sons homeless and without clothing- except for that which they wore wearing at the time. From all reports, the neighbors were quick to lake the boys into their homes and equally quick to organize their own disaster project to help I h e Coulter family. This is somewhat of a return to the days when citizens looked upon such cases as this as the responsibility of all living in that particular community. Days when people relied more upon Christian friendship and less upon n big federal government to help each oilier over the rough spots of life. We offer our congratulations to those persons who extended aid to their neighbor when an unfortunate disaster left her temporarily without means to provide for her family. Federal Program Needed To Harness the Missouri Once again the mighty .Missouri Kiver is on a rampage, and once again there arises tlic pressing problem of how tliis paradoxical source of destruction and fertility can best be harnessed. For several months now a special Missouri Basin Survey Commission, appointed by President Truman, has been investigating the whole complicated subject. What the Commission will come up with remains to lie seen. Meantime, two remedies have already been put forward. One is a bill which lias been introduced in Congress to create a Missouri Valley Aulhorily similar to the TVA. The other is the Pick-Sloan plan, developed by the Army Engineers and the Bureau of Reclamation. It aheady has partial authorization by Congivs?. (If tlie two plans, the MVA is more extensive and initially wouUI be mure costly. It would provide for irrigation water, for electric power, and for hol'l- ing as much rainwater as possible in the region where it falls. The Pick-Sloan plan relics hugely on building levees highcv to control flood waters. Another important part of this program is to provide a fairly deep foy navigation up the Missouri as far as Sioux City, la. Opponents of the Missouri Valley Authority bill claim it would he too costly and too inflationary, would require metals and materials needed for defense and by the civilian economy, would impose an authority over state and local governments in the area, and would provide electric power in competition with private power companies. .Some opponents of MVA have also criticized the fact that it would put a limit on the amount of land for which a single owner could get irrigation water. These arguments carry weight, particularly the one about cost. In these days of high taxes and rising government expenditures, any big new expenditure is going to get lots of opposition. Hut advocates of the MVA, while admitting its high initial cost, point out Hint certain phases of it, like irrigating water and electric power, would be sources of revenue which would amount lo a great deal over the long haul. And this is not to mention the benefits which accrue lo crops and soil conservation from a plan which would simultaneously reduce soil erosion and hold water where it has fallen for later irrigation use. • Rightly or wrongly, MVA advocates say certainly MVA would in many ways constitute imposing certain over-all supervision on the. states and localities involved. But such supervision is necessary, they say, if a unified program is to he devised which can place in their various niches of importance all the many Missouri River problems. However, .what's needed lit this lime, while the two great Missouri Hiver floods of the last year are fixed in people's minds, is a well-thought-out government program for the Missouri Kiver which will do the most good for the most people. Il's certainly to be hoped that the President's Missouri Basin Survey Commission will come forth soon with n workable plan which can be carried out as promptly as possible, and with a well- defined aim that eschews government encroachment in private business, unnecessary expenditures and federal control over anything except the project ilself. Control of the truculent Missouri River is the only problem — and the aims and effects of such a program should be spread no thinner than that. Views of Others Phenomenal! Fvom a bulletin.

The Cooke Commission report, In three big volumes, weighed eight and a half pounds. It recomended that Congress set up a separate commission to develop each major river basin, designating which Federal' agencies should participate in each project. The Cooke report was completed a year ago and then this commission itself went out of commission Nothing much happened. The report went to the Budget Bureau for condensation and drafting into authorizing legislation. The 17-patre Cooke summary emerged as an 87- page draft bill, but instead of going to Congress it appeared principally in literature of the Farmers Union, which supported it, • Further compounding the confu sion, President Truman then ap pointed the Missouri Basin Survey Commission under James Lawrence. chairman, James E.
