NEVADA FIGHTS MBMJH1Y. COLORADO RIVER GROUP OPPOSE WATER DIVISION CARSON 1 CITY, Nov., Oct. 17. UP) Nevada's Colorado River Commission has announced its opposition to the proposed treaty with Mexico for division of waters of the Colorado, Tijuana and Rio Grande rivers. Governor E. P. Carville, chairman, and Stale Engineer Alfred Merritt Smith, secretary, signed a statement declaring the commission's opposl- .tion to "further encoachmont by federal government on authority of Ktates to develop, use and regulate their own water resources." Reasons for the opposition were fciven as follows: The treaty effects a surrender of rights of the interested states to control properly and administer the Colorado river. Say Water in Exress Quantity of water to be delivered to Mexico (proposed 1.500,000 to 1,71)0,000 acre-feet) is much in excess of the amount used prior to construction of Boulder Darn and re- Inted works, and is more than the Quantity which Mexico has either a moral or an international right to demand. The government has no right, by tnenns of this treaty, to place In jeopardy or to make more difficult of fulfillment, the contracts for water nnd power its states have made with it in good faith and relying upon the validity of the Colorado river contract and the Boulder canyon project act. Criticize Boundary Proposal The Nevada group criticized the treaty proposal to create an international boundary and water commission for control of the river, stating: "It is hard to believe that the frilled States government will knowingly grant such unlimited and restricted authority over the water rights of the states in the great em- Jiire comprising the Colorado river basin, to a couple of officials, yet that is just what this treaty proposes to do."

(UP)— The war department quoted a captured German officer as saying that Lieutenant-General George S. Patton, commander of the United States Third Army, "Is for the American Army what Rommel stands for in the German Army." This "tribute" to Patton came from a German colonel in an SS unit who had fought extensively in Russia, and who was seized by the hard hitting United States Fourth Armored division, part of ration's Third Army after landing in Normandy. Praises Organization "I must admit the American troops are not only equipped with the best material, but what strikes me especially is the excellent organization under which these men function," the colonel is quoted as saying. "I would be pleased to know the commander of this particular division, and I am sure it must be part of General Patton's Third Army. General Patton is for the American Army what Rommel stands for in the Germany Army." The colonel never met the division commander. He was not Patton but 56-year-old Major-General John S. Wood, born in Arkansas but now making his home in Narberth, Pa. Sensational Advance The war department told a sensational story of the Fourth Divison's advance across France from Normandy, spearheading the attack of Patton's Third Army and putting up to 1900 miles on the mileage meters of their fast-moving tanks. The one division alone, the department, said destroyed 400 tanks up to September 27, captured 15,000 prisoners, killed 5000 Germans and knocked ou,t 1500 miscellaneous vehicles and 140 large artillery pieces. Jumping off from Normandy, July 27, the Fourth plunged into Brittany, captured the key city of Avranches, contained Rennes, and' took Nantes.

What Is Wrong When Prayer Fails? Thirty years ago, in Forbidden Tibet, behind the highest mountains in the world, a young Englishman named Edwin J. Dingle found the answer to this question. A great mystic opened his eyes. A great change came over him. He realized the strange power that Knowledge gives. That Power, he says, can transform the life of anyone. Questions, whatever they are, can be answered. The problems of health, death, poverty and wrong, can be solved. In his own case, lie was brought back to splendid health. He acquired wealth, too, as well as world-wide professional recognition. Thirty years ago, he was sick as a man could be and live. Once his coffin was bought. Tears of almost continuous tropical fevers, broken bones, near blindness, privation and danger had made a human wreck of him, physically and mentally. He was about to be sent back to England to die. when a strange message came—"They are waiting for you in Tibet." He wants to .tell the whole world what he learned there, under the guidance of the greatest mystic he ever encountered during his twenty-one years in the Far East. He wants everyone to experience the greater health and the Power, which there came to him. Within ten years, he was able to retire to this country with a fortune. He had been honored by fellowships in the world's leading geographical societies, for his work as a geographer. And today, 30 years Inter, he is still so athletic, capable of so much work, so yonng in appearance, it is hard to believe he has lived so long. As a first step in their progress toward the Power that Knowledge gives. Mr. Dingle wants to send to readers of this paper a 0000-word treatise. He says the time has come for it to be released to the Western World, and offers to send it, free of cost or obligation, to sincere readers of this notice.
