represented directly by a board of five

Gives Reasons for Drainage.
A lanre number of Ysleta asricul
fnrists heard interesting talks in the
school house Friday evenins by repre
sentatives of the reclamation service
and local institutions. D. W. Murphy,
a drainage engineer in the reclamation
service, explained to the farmers the
reason for the drainase ditch. He said:
"The rise in the ground water and
water level carries upward alkali Salts
which destroy the productive value of
the ground, ami it is necessarv to keep
the water level low by drainage in or
der to keep the salts down. This is
not an experiment, but ha made un
nroductive pround in fie Jfesilla val
ley productive. The drainace canals
proposed would affect the jrround as
soon as several miles were completed
and it would require about three vears
to construct" the laterals as planned
parallel to the river."
Regarding the cost Mr. Murphv said:
"Farmers have 20 vears in which to
f-pay their share and the productive in
crease of two or three vears would pay i
Government works with Cituens.
C. .T Blanchard. statistician for the

CL, said: The government trusts and
has confidence in the valley and has
spent over S9.O0O.O00 for the develop
ment of the nroiect. There is no in
stance where the government has at
tempted to take advantage of its citi
7ens and especially at" this time when
food production is jot vital importance
does the government with its limited
funds not desire to waste them need

of tee valley by advocating an ineffi

The main defect of the water users'
association is that every one does not
contribute according to the benefit
which he receives." said P. W. Dent,
district counsel. "In order to make the
project a success there must he a means

fited to pay his just contributions. As
in the case of drainage, one man makes
application for the drainage and his
neighbor derives the same benefit with

Gifts, Little Expense.
Approximately 32500 for the Amer
ican Red Cross has been raised in El
Faso since war was declared, accord'
ins to the report of the local flnan
cial committee, issued by the chair
man, A. P. Coles. The subscriptions
have been voluntary.
"We don't want anyone to give who
cannot afford It, but we feel that
persons who are not able to serve
their country in the army should feel
it their privilege to give somethin
to the lied Cross, for the purpose of
caring for the country's sick and
wounded at the front and for their
needy families who are left behind,"
said Mr. Coles Saturday.
"Only four El Pasoans have taken
out fife memberships In the Red
Cross, but we feel th'at more should
do so. The subscription for a life
time membership is only $25. The
four are George C Carothers. W. TV.

OTERO FARMERS PLANTING
BIG CROPS OF ALL KINDS
TJnder the supervision of state col
lege agents Otero county farmers
are organizing for the purpose of
Increasing; their production to the
maximum, according to Otto 1
Tinklepaugb, of Alamogordo. The
greatest difficulty experienced is the
shortage of seed, but this is being
overcome- so far as possible, and in
many cases the agriculturalists are
subsuming other crops in the place
of those they had intended planting.
A month ago it was estimated that
there was an oversupply of potatoes
In the mountain district, of nearly
30,000 pounds: nevertheless, alt outgoing-
shipments were stopped, and,
owing to the additional acreage
planted there is now a shortage in
the seed spnds. Jlr. Tinklepaugh says.
Mr. Tinklepaugh. who is secretary
of the Commercial club of Alamo
