SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1951 CENTRAL PRIC.S.S 1'ICTUHKS PRICE FIVE CENTS Upper Valley Farmers Take Dim View Of New Proposal To Give Water To Hudspeth (Editor's note: This is the second In n series of articles dealing u i t h tin; erlUu*) wuter hltniitlun In Uonu.

Most farmers in the upper valleys are taking a dim view of a published proposal to allow a one-fourth acre-foot iHinus water increase to flow to Hudspeth county. Mayor Fred Hervey of El Paso said this morning that such a proposal was "under consideration" by the city of El Paso. Thut plan come on the heels of another proposal originating 1 in t Hudspeth county that certain_water well owners in bona Xna 'county turn their water from irrigation wells into Bureau of Reclamation canals io supplement Hudspeth \ county's lagging water supply. Suffer Shortage, . In the first place, all of El Paso and Dona Ana counties arc suffering from one of the worst water y. shortages in the valley's irrigating history. Then, to propose that a bare quarter-foot increase be ulloted to a county where land is free of ) control, and water is allowed land owners free, seems highly inconsistent. If there is a water shortage, why aid and abet that shortage by I turning water so desperately needed Into canals to flow to An area whose land owners paid no part of the huge cost of bringing that wuter to their own areas? \ l*oy Transportation, On top of · such a proposal, the plan asked 'by Hudspeth county would have well owners not only sell- their water to Hudspeth but * pay. for cost of transportation over reclamation service ditches. Cost would be borne 1 'by-local farmers since, they bought and paid for ' Reclamation services by virtue of , being in. this district. j The "whole plan seems to conflict with itself. ". · .

July 7 UP) ·-- Thirty-nine Texas enmities from New Mexico to the gulf have been , designated as henvily infested with pink hoi I worms. tPcrviotisly, the idea so designated included only counties in the, lower Rio Grande valley. ' Texas agriculture commissioner John White also announced a regulation change to ease movement of cottonseed originating. in the infested area. Under the old regulation, two licnt treatments were required be; 'I fore seed could be taken acioss a i county line, and the producer had to pay for both. * Now seed may move freely n- mong counties in the heavily infested area after only one heat treatment.' Or, seed may move from the heavily infested area to other parts of Texas if it is going to mills where approved equip- t ment is available for the second heat treatment. The 37 counties designated are: Arkansas. Uee, E r e w s t e r, ·* Brooks, Callioun, Cameron, Culberson, Diffitt, Duval, El Paso, Hidalgo.

None deny that allowances of all surplus water to the lower valley farmers would be 'an act of good neighorliness. Krai Surplus? But thti uppermost question is how can there bts a surplus when the entire area suffers from an identical shortage. Pictures taken by the Sun-News April 24 and July 2 reveal there is a great quantity of drain water flowing at this moment to Hudspeth county through irrigation canals and drainage ditches. The water cannot be anything but surplus. If there is a surplus of water then how can there be a shortage? That's a question local fanners find hard to answer. Facilities Paid Perhaps the Bureau of Reclamation can answer how thousands of gallons of water daily can flow to Hurispeth county to irrigate acres of cotton and alfalfa, using the facilities of the Hurcau of Reclamation: Those facilities were paid for by farmers in the IClephant Uutte Irrigation district and tl:e 1-J1 Paso Water Improvement district. Hudspeth farmers bought the Inml chenp, and farm . t h e land cheap, all at the' expense of Dona Ana and Kl Pso counties. Charity to a neighbor is a noble and traditionally Southwestern trait -r but you don't ffled your neighbor when your own are beginning to starve. U. S. BOAVS To Rod Demand To Close ^ Information Service WASHINGTON, July 7--VPt-- The United States informed Hungary-today that, in response to a demand of last Monday, it will discontinue its cultural activities in that Communist nation. This development · is an outgrowth of the recent trial of Archbishop Groesz. Charges of working against the Communist regime were made against American legation officials in that case. The Hungarian government demanded the recall of three officials and the closing down of the U. S. Library and motion picture and musical activities. The Hungarian government charged those activities were "organs camouflaging acts of espionage and subversive activity." The U. S. government first refused to recall three legation officials. The Hungarian government thereupon declared them personally unacceptable, which left this country no choice except to order them out or keep them out of Hungry. Ban On Rollbacks For Agriculture Voted Byjolons WASHINGTON, July 7 UPl -The House Agriculture committee Saturday decided to sponsor a move to prohibit rollbacks on agricultural products. Chairman Coole.y (D-NC) said he would offer an amendment to the defense production bill with his committee's approval. The bill is now under consideration in the House and facing" a stiff'fight. Cooley told reporters after a meeting of his committee that this decision does nqt mean that the group has changed its opposition to all rollbacks on agricultural and non-agricultural products. Must Cojiflm; "But he concluded wo should confine our amendments to agri-- cuHural commodities.", Cooley said. The committee met for three ami one half hours In executive session, and during one hour of this time representatives of farm groups were closeted with them. The House itself, meanwhile took time out from the controls issue with many members looking to the forthcoming Korea cease- fire tfllke for a cue on how to vote. Voting is Monday Actual voting starts Monday, ·with a crucial lest due in mid-week on a move to prohibit pi-ice rollbacks during the one year for which it is proposed to keep the defense production act in opera- vote. It became increasingly apparent, however, that if next week's peace talks bring about an end to fighting in Korea, there will be strong (sentiment to junk controls on sentiment to junk controls on prices and wages. Members advocating an end to controls i n ' t h a t even claim the resulting decrease in defense spending \vill curb inflationary trends and automatically keep prices and wages from rising further. In.wrt Conditions Republican..leaders are considering..making 'tn"p'r6p"oied controls conditional in any event, provided they can agree on how to do that. Administration leaders are trying to meet President Truman's request for a stronger bill than that passed by the Senate and t h a t proposed by the House Banking committee hope for an assist fnim the consuming public before the voting starts.
