Tuesday, March 6, 1945 SCOTTSBLUFF. DAILY STAR-HERALD reawl WESTERN NEBRASKA'S ONLY DAILY NEWSPAPER Page Five Nebraska Objections to Findings in Platte Case Are Told to Court Paul Good Says State Is Opposed 1 to Parts of Doherty Ruling. Washington. -Paul Good, special counsel for Nebraska, outlined to the supreme court the state's objectious to a special master's recommendations for regula tion of the North Platte river. Foremost, he said, are these: 1.

The proposed division of water between Wyoming and Nebraska 18 not on a basis of priority of use. such as Nebraska requested. 2. The proposed regulations do not protect Nebraska users between the Tri-State dam, near the Wyoming boundary, and at Bridgeport. 3.

Nebraska would not get an equitable share of the river, under the proposed division. The court-appointed special master, Michael J. Doherty of St. Paul, recommended that between Whalen, and the Tri-State dam, where the greatest amounts of water are diverted for irrigation in Wyomink and Nebraska, the division of the natural flow of the stream should be 75 per cent for Nebraska and 25 for Wyoming. Good opened oral arguments in the now-famous suit which took 11 years to get before the court.

It was brought by Nebraska to settle a 20 year old dispute over water rights and to require Wyoming to honor Nebraska priorities. The case will be taken under advisement after attorneys for the three states and the reclamation service finish arguments day. Each state has submitted and is arguing exceptions to the master's report, filed last September and described by Good as "a substantial Nebraska victory." Good said that when he day he intended to outline sumed his court a appearance three proposed Nebraska modifications as follows: Priority protection recommended by the master for canals along the western Nebraska state line and irrigating 250 thousand acres should be extended east to Bridgeport to protect an additional 14 canals irrigating 50,000 acres. 2. Instead of the master's recommendation for dividing naiural flow on the basis of 75 per cent to Nebraska and 25 per cent to Wyoming, a priority administration composed of irrigation departments of the two states should be set up.

3. The priorities of the two states should be considered together, with seniority governing. Under the percentage system, he said, senior appropriators in Nebraska would be barred from taking water in certain dry seasons at the same time some junior Wyoming claimants would be allowed to open irrigating ditches. Attorneys for Wyoming are contending storage wager and natural flow should be considered together in establishing rights, while counsel for Colorado proposes dismissal of the lawsuit entirely. Accompanying Good to Washington were Nebraska Attorney General Walter Johnson, state engineer Wardner Scott, Assistant Attorney General John Riddell, special consulting engineer R.

I. Meeker and Tom Neighbors of Scottsbluff, attorney for several state-line irrigation groups. Construction of the Kendrick reclamation project in Wyoming was one of the principal reasons why Nebraska brought suit against that state for a determination of rights to waters of the North Platte river, the court was told. Good said the Kendrick project "constitutes an imminent threat to Nebraska users because if put into operation it will deplete waters downstream." For the past 15 years there has not been enough water in the North Platte to meet existing needs in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska and also supply the Kendrick profect, Good declared. He explained that although the storage dam (the Seminoe) and canals of the Kendrick project have been constructed, no water has been diverted for use there.

"But unless enjoined by this court, the Kendrick project will be put into operation to the injury of users with older water rights," he added. A chief reason for the water recond. Good said, was a feeling of Nebraskans that they being damaged, by water diversions in holders of junior water rights. Nebraska insisted that. priority of use should apply allocation of the water between the states.

The North Platte case will be decided by eight justices. Justice Jackson who was United States attorney general at the time the tederal government intervened. in the case to claim unappropriated waters of the river, announced that he WAS voluntarily withdrawing from participation.

Small Fires Break Ont Meanwile, members of the Scottsbluff fire department remained on duty until early this morning. Several "'spot fires" kept breaking out and firemen kept a line to the front and rear of the building to keep the smoldering ruins wetted down, The fire finally was brought completely under controy today at about 7 a. Williams said. Both lines still were strung early this afternoon as a precaution, firemen said. The area in front of the theatre has been roped off.

The Ninth Army cleared the last Germans from pockets in the Rhine ben don its front and the First Army swiftly was clearing the west bank 'on its sector from Cologne to Neuss. Advances were up to three miles.

At least 5,240 prisoners were captured Monday exclusive of the First Army's unreported total.

Tanks and infantry rolled through the great industrial area In the north and sections of Germany's fourth largest city, and shelled the railroad marshaling yards, among the biggest in the reich.

France Balks (Continued from page one) Last week French Foreign Minister Georges Bidault had a series of conferences in London with British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden. As a result the British and United States governments are understood to have agreed to some modification of the invitation. Whether the French then suggested further changes is not clear.

At any rate, a time limit was fixed, and it is understood to have been delayed at least once. Moscow voted the modification," and so much time then had elapsed the other governments decided to go ahead. So far as could be learned here there is no restriction in the invitation issued Monday which would prevent any of the sponsors from proposing charges in the Dumbarton Oaks plan. For that reason the French position on this point is still puzzling the diplomats. Paris dispatches said the formal invitation to France to participate as a sponsor arrived only Sunday.

Why Russia ultimately declined to agree to the French reservations, as reported, was not explainThere have been some indications, however, that Premier Stalin felt De Gaulle was seeking to exercise power beyond that the Russian leader thinks he actually possesses in terms of real force devoted to defeating the enemy. It is understood that there have been policy differences between the two before. One report is that at the time De Gaulle visited Moscow and made the Franco-Russian pact, he declined to recognize the Lublin government of Poland, taking the position held by the United States and Britain that it was not then a truly representative provisional government. Along the same line there have been reports that it was Stalin who turned thumbs down on De Gaulle's presence at Yalta. On the other hand, there is no evidence that Pres.

Roosevelt or Prime Minister Churchill actually proposed that De Gaulle be invited. Republican and Democratic ators said the big three agreement on international voting procedure may help smooth the path to American participation in a world peace-keeping organization. Most' legislators apparently regarded as a practical--if not perfect-solution difficult problem the proposal giving any of the five biggest members of projected world security organization the right to veto the use of force against an accused aggressor. There was a tinge of disappointment in some quarters, but it was more than offset by prompt contentions that if the San Francisco conference accepts this agreement the chances of. senate approval will be brighter.

(Delayed) -(Via Radio)- There definitely has been a change of pace in the war against Japan: the two Tokyo carrier attacks are evidence of it, and anything can happen in the next six months, Vice Adm.

Marc A. Mitscher, commander of a large rier task force, didn't have his fingers crossed when ha said that. Nevertheless, he said it hesitantly, weighing his words as he gave 'me an exclusive interview from his famous windward deck chair aboard his carrier flagship as it left Tokyo waters after the Feb. 25 strike. "It is true the enemy has not attacked us on this strike with the vigor he displayed in many other attacks he has made against this task force," Mitscher said.

"This does not mean that his navy and his air force have been defeated. He still has strong naval and air forces. But he has not used them against us this trip and that alone is evidence of a change in Oregon Legion Post Rescinds Ban Action Indianapolis. -National headquarters of the American Legion' announced Hood River Oregon Post No. 22 had agreed to restore to its honor roll the names of 15 Japanese-American servicemen which it voted to last December.
