PUMPING STATION PROVIDES FLOOD CONTROL— Arthur Quaife. whose 1500 acres of land are In the Green River bottoms northeast of Kewanee. 111., has just completed the Installation of a $15.000 pumping station, believed to be the only privately owned station of its kind in the middlewest. Located at the end of a 6-mile network of drainage ditches, the pumping station will not be needed while normal conditions prevail. Wht-n the river is high, its water is above the ditch level; hence, the land is without drainage at times when it is needed most. Now the two diesel powered pumps will lift water over the high Green River levee at a rate of 28.000 gallons a minute. "On an average year the pumps will not run two weeks and even difmg the wettest years they'll not be used more than a month." says Mr. Quaife. "This pumping station has added $10 to the cost of every acre of land on the farm, but there's no better land under the shining sun if water can be kept off of it. We believe this pumping system will do the job." Sunday and Monday, April 24-25 One of the biggest hits of 1938—Hot! CLARK MYRNA SPENCER Coming Thurs. Fri. Sat..
