FAOV BLTtltEYILLB (ARK.y COOT1ER MEWi FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER J, 1954 Two-State Drainage JobOkayed (Continued from Page 1) ening of the Hoodway south of Highway 18 and the Missouri drainage districts have approved expenditures of $24,000 as their part in the new ditch. District 17 spokesmen maintain the ditch will cost the local district practically nothing. .Corps of Engineers was brought into the program, it was reported, when it was demonstrated the plan fits into CE's St. Francis River Basin project, surface of which has now been scratched with preliminary work near Marianna. The St. Francis Basin program calls for larger ditches and improved drainage throughout the basin from the Mississippi River at Marianna to Cape Girardeau. It has been on the Engineers' drawing board for years and is considered a $60 million or better project. $2 Million on Hand Thus far. only about S2 million has been made available for it. The 11-mile ditch up for construction in the New Bar pits here is to have a 50-foot channel and, district engineers believe, will car- j ry a continuous flow of water. Preliminary planning for the new ditch has been fraught with complaints on the part of fishermen and hunters who ply the Big Lake bottom land in search of fish and game. Three years of drought have whittled away at their water supply, and many of them feel this new ditch will provide for even faster escape of water. District 17 spokesmen maintain that only about 10 per cent of the water now flowing from Missouri into "the Floodway will be diverted into the new ditch. Also, hunters, and fishermen hold out some- hope that the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will begin work soon on a project designed to put water over the Commission's public shooting and fishing grounds at ig Lake.

McCarthy (R-Wis) and Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell of the Democratic National Committee. Neither version appeared to please either McCarthy or Mitchell. Nixon could not be reached immediately by newsmen. He spoke at a closed meeting of the GOP National Committee in Cincinnati Wednesday night. A committee source who asked not to be named said he declared in effect there is not much to choose between "the blasts of McCarthy and the drawing room innuendoes of Mitchell." A Cleveland News dispatch from Cincinnati by staff writer Thomas Vail quoted Nxon as saying: "I can't see much difference between the bellows of Sen. McCarthy and 1 the bleats of Mitchell. In fact, Mitchell is using the McCarthy techniques." McCarthy commented: "I'm sure I don't like the comparison any better than Mitchell probably will. Mitchell told a reporter from his x-acation ranch at Taos, N.M.: "You can't figure out from this report whether Nixon and the other Republican leaders finally have decided that McCarthy is a liability to them."
