(Colorado State University pholo) SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A hearing over a proposed federal dam project in the scenic China Meadows area of eastern Utah and western Wyoming developed into .a verbal clash between groups from the two slates Tuesday. Ulan conservationists and sportsmen claimed the China Meadows project would irreparably damage one of the Mountain West's finest wilderness areas! Slate government representatives backed them up. Wyoming officials and farmers argued (hat the project was necessary to save the lively- hood of fanners in Ihe stale's Bridger Valley. The proposed dam would complement Hie Meeks Cabin Dam on Blacks Fork in Wyoming which was finished last year and would inundate more than two miles of Smith's Fork, described by Utah sportsmen as a nearly ideal troul stream. Some 40 witnesses spoke al Ihe hearing conducted by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation in (he Sail Palace auditorium before a packed audience of 600 persons. David C. Raskin, president of Ihe Uinla Chapter of the Sierra Club, claimed Ihe project would amount to federal subsidy of some fill farm families who would each get about $80,000 worth of irrigation and flood control from the dam. - "The public deserves a betler, Marvin Croneberg, who said return on Ms money in view of he was speaking for the Wyom- ^f' FORT COLLINS - The role of the modern velerinarian in :oday's society will be (he heme of a student-sponsored open house May 5-7 at the Colorado Stale University College of Veterinary Medicine and; Biomedical Sciences.

"Veterinary medicine had made tremendous advancements in the past few years and we have planned'the open nouse as a way to illustrate these to the people who will be laking advantage of them," Emerich said.
