COURIER NEWI MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 1», America's Deepest Canyon Is Object Of Name Controversy By SAM DAT BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The nation's deepest canyon .is; also its most controversial. There's even disagreement on how to spell its name. -We always spell it Hell's Can-l we're concerned." yon," says Sam Pretwell of Parma The utility and Fretwell's group: Idaho. He's chairman of (he Idaho- Oregon-Washington Hell's Canyon Assn., a group that wants to see a federal dam constructed in the Deep Snake River gorge bordering Idaho and Oregon. But Gilbert Stanton. public relations director for Idaho Power Co., says, "It's Hells Canyon as far as Copter Aids In Recruiting OXFORD.

The dams would flood the site of the proposed federal dam. Public power forces have fought the utility's plan through more than a: year of PPC hearings. They threaten to take it to court unless the PPC changes its mind. The canyon dips more than 8,000 feet below the peaks of the Wallowa Mountains of Oregon and the Seven Devils Range of Idaho, on opposite sides 01 the mighty Columbia River tributary. It's usually spelled Hells Canyon by both the'PPC and the U.S. In-i terior Department. It occurs both ways in the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature and in brochures of the Chamber of Commerce in Weiser, Idaho, the! city nearest the canyon. Fits Its Name Early travelers 5 who looked with i awe on the jagged cliffs and I -treacherous, rapids-strewn river probably gave the gorge its name. Sister N. Alfred Blsensohn, historian at St.Gertrude's convent in Cbttonwood, Idaho, writes of a man named Haller who tried to navigate the canyon in 1891 but cracked up on the rocks. •'From a profane expression used in Haller's later recountal of these difficulties," she writes, "Hell's Canyon derived its nnme.'' Many believe "Hell's Canyon" was once correct but has lost its' apostrophe in popular usage. This has happened to Harpers Ferry, W.Va., and many other towns.
