INTERIOR DEPARTMENT IN-
CLINES TO GIVING OKLA
HOMA WORST OF DEAL
Washington. April :!.--The depart.
m?nt of interior is divided axatnst
itself on the ipiestion of irrigation in
southwestern Oklahou.a. and til'
divi-sion of opinion is on feasibility
of liit- proposed .projects in that
country may lead to the eventual do-
feat oi assistance fro in the govern.
mcnt. although the state 'of Okla-
homa is probably more entitled to
government aid than any other.
Representative Scott. Kerris "nS

ment oiticiai.s by Scnateir J. IJIuier

tare Adams J it II v believes the pro
jects at l.awtoii West Cache and
aigert and Otter creek are feasible

ilroutiis anu ercwi laiiures ne union

On the other hand. Director New.
H ol' the reclamation service is do-
- ing everytiung lu ills power to pre
vent. Oklahoma getting a square deal
lie cannot seemingly convince him.
-elf that the Oklahoma projects are
wortbv. lie declares that ihe char-
eier of the water it containing' a
;reat amount of salt would kill the
rops and furthermore woi.fil event-
Uallv make the land over which it
was Mm valueless. The Oiilahom.
ins nave specillcallv shown that .geo-
ogical survey reports coiitrad'ict
Think Fanners Unreliable.
In addition Newell declares that
even though Ibe farmers of the' at-
.ected region now are willing to
pay their share of the total cost of
irrigation systems due to the drouths
of the past three

should there be a pleulltul natural
supply of water and consequently
argues thai the government would
be throwing away Ihe money. To
this argument the Olabomans have
advanced the statement and peti-
tions signed .by hundreds of farmers
pledging their continued support to
any irrigation systems the govern-
ment may see tit to father. Kurther.

the several private projects which
have beet! established are prosper-
ing a. id that lieldf before barren

so is one ol' their arguments in reply
lo tip' statement that the' characer
of Oklahoma water is such Unit as
to injure the crops.
There is one peculiar fcaturo of
the proposition winch (he Oklahoma
irrigation boosters dislike ami have

Election May Alter Attitude.
The state in past years has contri-
buted to the general reclamation fund
about Jiinni);(.'iO from the sale of
surplus lands of which about $i7.0uu
has been spent in investigating the
feasibility o! Oklahoma systems. In
slates which have contributed a far
less amount the government has

In many of tiie'e
there is a comparative

sums have been spent to irrigate In.

comes up befor the department
with a plea lor irrigation projects
(M en though two-thirds of 1 1" e in-

sides within her borders Newell
gives iier Ihe icy shoulder. The in-
justice ol the ollicial seems unques-

There is a -possibility that despite
Newell's objections to giving Okla-
homa a (hanee for her white alley
in the irrigation question. Assistant
Secretary Adams and higher o licials
of the department will see fit te over-
ride him and order an investigation
of the project 'proponed. This is
