Boulder Dam Irrigation Project Will Not Be Permitted to Boost Amount of Cultivated Farm Land Every Acre Placed in Production Will Be Balanced by Ten Acres Withdrawn By ROBERT MURRAY The extension of crop production into new lands to be made available by such developments as the Boulder dam-Colorado •iver project will be carefully controlled by the government according to Prof. H. J. Gilkey, head of theoretical and applied mechanics at Iowa State college, one of the consulting engineers >n the Boulder dam project. The present, administration has determined that'the good and which is to be made available by. the Colorado river development as well as by projected developments on the Columbia iver and near Casper, Wyo., is not to be used to increase agri- ultural production. For every acre of new land which goes into production, an equivalent area of fiubmarginal land pbs- hibly from four to 10 acres, will be taken out of production Farmers who now are starving to death on submarginal land will be settled m re-ions where they have at least a " ' ' chance. <s> ____ The primary purpose of the Colorado river development and of the Wyoming development is flood con trol. Power development is secondary, altho in the case of the cross sand dune country where vegetation and oiling and perhaps even concrete work will be used to keep the sand in place. The southern California land is among the richest in the world. Alfalfa produces from seven to 10 cutLngs a year, each averaging a ton to the acre. Thirty thousand carloads of lettuce and cantaloupes are produced a year and small fruits are extensively grown. Most traffic courts dispense justice. Those of small town "speed traps," however, merely dispense with it. Engineer Hopkins To Visit Capital DES MOINES <tlP>— Organization in one week of an NRA machine that affects personally practically every citizen of Iowa was lauded Friday by Gov. Clyde L. Herring as "an outstanding piece of work." He also expressed pleasure with the speed with which public works projects were reviewed by the state advisory committee and Federal Engineer P. F. Hopkins. Engineer Hopkins and a member of the advisory board will leave Saturday for Washington, the governor said, where they will present to federal officials projects approved for immediate work here in Iowa, Eighty-five of the 99 counties in Iowa already have been organized for a re-emplo.vment campaign in connection -'ith public work projects, the governor said. The remaining counties will be organized under the direction of State Director Hans Pfund within a few weeks, he predicted. Duties of the county committees will be to prepare lists of persons eligible for re-employment for work on public works projects and on state highway construction, he said. Mentioned also by the governor in his general comment on Iowa's Place in "the jew deal" was the reforestation, soil erosion and insect control work being done by Civilian Conservation workers In the state. He announced that a group of Iowa World war veterans who, during the summer have worked in Bismark, S. D.. this week would be returned to the camp at Atlantic, la. The men expressed a desire to work in their native state, the governor said, and thru cooperation of federal officers arrangements for transfer of the group were made. Another development of the week was the announcement by President D. P. Hogan of the Omaha Federal land bank that Iowa iarai mortgage refinancing would progress as swiftly as possible.

The Colorado river makes a tremendous drop from the 11,000 or 12,000-foot levels of western "Colorado to the sea and every year creates a tremendous flood hazard for the farmers of southern California and sweeps away from 130 to 400 million cubic yards of earth. From 1905 to 1907 the river was on its worst rampage and in that time formed the Salton sea in southern California, a 515-square mile body of water, which now has shrunk to 287 square miles, with a maximum depth of 80 feet. Its surface is 250 feet below sea level. At the present time the average elevation of Imperial valley is from sea level to 250 feet below sea level while the river flows in that region 100 feet above sea level. • The Boulder dam reservoir "will hold 30 million acre feet of water or the two-year normal flow of the Colorado river. Of that vast capacity, nine million acre feet will be allotted to water for flood regulation, from five to eight million acre feet will be dedicated to silt and from 12 to 15 million acre feet will be allotted to active or regulation storage. Not only will the dam serve the purpose of regulating the river's flow in order to prevent floods but it will conserve water for use in se'asons of drouth. The total excavation of earth for the power and river development will be about 75 million cubic yards, in addition, the construction of the aqueduct which. will carry water from the river, 155 miles below the dam, 226 miles to the Los Angeles region, will involve 38 million cubic feet of excavation bringing the total to about 113 million or about one-half of the total excavation for the Panama canal. Excavation at the dam site-will total about six million cubic yards, two million for the diversion tunnels, 1,2130,000 for dam and power house foundations, 1,100.000 for spillways, 1,200,000 for cofferdams and 550,000 for the valve houses and intake towers. The All-American canal, which will carry water into the Imperial valley region, will involve a total excavation of 65 million cubic yards, while road work and other minor excavation will add four million cubic yards. The government is constructing the dam and power plant and irrigation works but the cities of the Los Angeles region are paying for the water supply aqueduct. Every year the Colorado carries away an amount of silt from one to four times the total excavation required for the entire project or from one-half to twice the total'ex- cavation for the Panama canal. The Panama canal, for which 230 million cubic yards of excavation was required, is 51 miles lo^g 300 feet wide at the bottom, 41 feet deep and has an 85-foot fall The Catsklll aqueduct in New York which cost JlStMiOO.OOO, is 125 miles long and has a Capacity of 750 cubic feet a second. The All-American canal will IMIVP the rivor at Laguna dam nw Vunia, Ariz., 300 milrs below Ihf 'lani. An Sn-m(|p cnnnl will carr.v water to impprial valley and ' a 130-mile canal will carry water to the Ooachilla valley. The shorter canal will be 200 feet wide at the water line, 134 feet wide at the bottom and 22 feet deep and will carry 15,000 cubic feef of water per second. The longer canal | will carry about 2.000 cubic feet! of water per second. The shorter stretch of canal will CHICKENS Mac's AJUvays Has Them!
