Rio Grande Level Runoff Examined ALBUQUERQUE (UPl)— That Edward Sanchez, technical ]ia- Ole* Man River of the West, the Kto Gfande, currently is "rolling along" but the $64 question among veteran river watchers is Just how much rolling will be done in the next 30 to 45 days. For the Rio Grande, which carries about as much water as a bathtub tap many months out of the year, has been known to become quite frivolous in the Spring when snow conditions to the north create a heavy runoff. And no doubt about it, this year's runoff is going to be a dandy. 160 Per Cent On April 8 the runoff for the main stream of the Rio Grande was forecast at an anticipated 160 per cent of normal from April through September, and the May forecast, due out thy week, is expected to reaffirm that picture. i And between Elephant Butte Dam, near Truth or Consequences, and the mountains of Southern Colorado not one single, son officer for the Corps, said his agency feels the dam at Abiquiu can handle all the Chama has to offer and thereby relieve the pressure on the Rio Grande. Sanchez also said Jeme/ Dam west of Bernalillo stands dry and ready to handle any heavy runoff from the Jemez mountains. He said up to 30 inches of snow still are reported in some areas of the Jemez watershed and heavy runoffs, such as occurred in 1957 and 1959, could result from that area if warm weather and rains hit the piled up snow. But Jemez Reservoir is nearly empty. It can handle 115,000 acre feet and it has never been crested so Sanchez feels it too can do the work for which it was cut out. That leaves two potential problem spots: first, the Rio Grande and second, the Galisteo. Galisteo Creek, which has been flood control dam spans thej known to bring massive walls of main stem of the Rio Grande. watcr down from the Sangre de However, most observers feel Cristos east of Las Ve gas. runs the danger of any major flood i between Albuquerque and Santa is negligible due to the con-j^p struction of dams on tributaries of the Rio, partictilarily the Chama River of Northern New- Mexico. The key to control of the Chama...and perhaps the Rio Abiquiu Dam between Espanola and the town of Chama. Abiquiu. dedicated in 1962. will meet its first test this year and In the past the creek has covered U.S. 85 near Santo Domingo Pueblo and its passive dry bed is misleading. But surveys indicate this year the runoff from the Galisteo watershed won't be sufficient to cause more than an occasional flash flood, should heavy rains hit. and the creek isn't considered a Corps of Engineers officials a^^ThaUeaves the Rio Grande it- confident it will do the job it hold back self.

In general the morel cards you hold in the suit your opponent has bid the less desirable it is to make a takeout double. South has a fine opening heart call. East has opened one diamond. Should South pass, overcall, or double? The answer is that he should overcall with one heart. How will his partner know whether South has a good overcall or a bad one. He won't but he doesn't have to know. North should raise the one heart overcall to two. In the early thirties the raise of an overcall indicated a strong hand. Since that time it has! Around the State merely indicated the sort Of hand with which you would false an opening bid. Four hearts turn out to be • cinch contract. In fact, after the diamond opening South should have no trouble makfng five odd. He wins the diamond with the ace or queen as required, cashes the other high diamond, ruffs a diamond In dummy, w- turns to his hand with the king of clubs, ruffs his last diamond and eventually loses two epaa* tricks. With this hand the double would not have hurt South at all. He could have gone to two hearts after his partner responded one spade. North would have raised that to three afld South would have still reached game but if North did not have any heart support the double might well have started North and South on their way to real trouble while the overcall could not have hurt.

The Stieglitz show nicely complements "Three Centuries of American Art" because photographer - dealer Alfred Stieglitz helped mold the American artistic tastes of the 20th Century and his wife, Georgia O'Keefe! was one of the major painters of the period. Miss O'Keefe. widowed since 1946 and living in New Mexico, is represented in the show by three paintings — "Deer Horn". "Blue Lines No. 10", and "Black Abstraction", all from the collection which Stieglitz left to the Metroplitan Museum. There also are a Sticglitz photo portrait of his \\iio taken in 11)18 and photos of Miss O'Kecle's hands and font and of her exhibition at his gallery in 1!WJ taken by Edward Steichcn and Paul Strand.
