6 Tbun4ar, Feb. 17, 1944 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Says Congress Must Decide on River Use Washington, (ff) -- Reclamation Commissioner H, W. Bashore said Thursday congress must ultimately decide whether waters of the Missouri river and other' western streams should. be used primarily for irrigation or f o r navigation. Bashore was the first witness before the house Hood control committee on the second day of its hearing on a $490,000,000 project lor Hood control, irrigation, navigation and power development of the Missouri river and its tributaries. "The problem presented by the Missouri river has arisen because af a clash between policies thai are not uniformly adjusted to the climatic differences between the humid east and midwest and the arid and semiarld west," Be- ilrore said. "The conflict is between the beneficial, consumptive use of water in the drier areas for domestic, irrigation, industrial and mining purposes, and the use of waters in the humid areas to maintain f l o w i n g navigation channels." Bashore's views coincided generally with those expressed by some irrigation people who have said safeguards should be set up under the program, submitted Wednesday by t h e army engineers, to Make sure sufficient water would be available for irrigation and not too much diverted .to navigation in the lower Missouri basin. "The decision will have to be made by the congress as to which use of the water resources will take precedence in the west," Bashore declared. He said the homestead act, adopted in 1862, built a "rural civilization that is perhaps without a rival anywhere in the world," adding he believed the act, without modification, was applicable only in the humid zone where there was sufficient rainfall. "Where the bureau o£ reclamation has irrigated the land of the western states and has applied the provisions of the old homstead act to its subdivisions and settlement, the results have been uniformly successful," Bashore stated. "Applying a water policy in the arid and semiarid sections that is applicable In humid areas," he said, "holds great danger of failure in our efforts to reach the sound and permanent development of the west." "The fact that the water is apportioned under state laws in the west is a reason why there is a very serious danger in the dedication by the congress of the waters oE the great rivers that arise in the arid zone and flow into the humid . zone lo the purpose of navigation to the exclusion of fu- it r.u Rece!v_ B«/c t:3t C*ll !!
