How the United States Government,
be reclaiming the waste lands of the
great West, aids in feeding the nation
was shown last night in the University
Auditorium by the illustrated lecture
of Prof. Frederick Haynes Newell,
head of the department of civil en
gineering in the University of Illinois
and former director of the United
States Reclamation Service. Prefessor
Newell spent twenty-six years in the
service of the government as an en
gineer. Professor Newell said that the
people had a right to know what had
been done with the $100,000,000 that
had been appropriated for the Recla
mation Service. The work waB initiat
ed by John Wesley Powell, who saw
the possibilities for feeding, the world
which these great western areas con
tained. Professor Newell was appoint
ed by Mr. Powell to go west and to
begin the study of the problem.

fulness," said the speaker.
Not only this difficulty but also
public indifference hindered the work
of the early engineers. Congression
al action was tardy. Fnally, during
the administration of President
Roosevelt, a bill setting aside the
proceeds from the sale of public lands
for the reclamation service, was in
troduced by Francis G. Newlands and
passed by Congress.
Pictures of Gorges.
Professor Newell illustrated his
description of the difficulties which the
engineers had to overcome by pic
tures of the Rocky Mountain gorges
across which dams were built to turn
the water from its narrow course and
make it available for use on the plains
Pictures of the great sagebrush
plains, which, since the arrival of ir
rigation, have been changed into pro
ductive fields, were shown. These
one-time barren wastes are now pro
ducing, in many instances, ten to
eleven cuttings of alfalfa a year.

said the sepaker, "is little compre

that California would hold Belgium.

concerned with the building of big
dams. In the mountainous regions.
the work of locating the site for the
dam was done with the aid of pack
horses. The speaker said that his
party spent six months endeavoring to
find a site for the Roosevelt Dam in
Arizona. This dam will put to use a
lake, twenty-flve miles long, which was
formed by obstructing the passages of
a small mountain stream. Through
this dam thousands of acres of arid
land will be released for cultivation.
A Great Engineering feat
The great work of the reclamation
service was further shown by illustra
tions of the Arrowrock Dam in Idaho.
This concrete dam Is 350 feet high
from bedrock. It is one of the great
est engineering feats in the world.
The dam is on the Boise River. Ac
cording to Professor Newell, the dam
derives its name from an Indian
custom. There is a peculiar rock
formation at this point. The Indians
believe that if they discharge their
arrows into this rock they will have
good luck in the hunt.
Another Important piece of reclama
tion work was the construction of a
dam at Elephant Butte, along the Rio
Grands, in Arizona. Because of the
uncertain rainfall, the system of In
dian irrigation which diverted the
water from the stream, through the
use of rude wooden obstructions, pro
duced poor results. Since the In
stallation of the new dam, the water
taken from the river has been clear;
before that time it was almost mud.
Professor Newell said that the work
of preparing these dams was diffi
cult. The work is divided into three
shifts and goes on continously. At first
the problem of securing labor was the
main difficulty. White labor was
scarce. Now the Indians have been
taught to work, and make good
laborers when they are properly
treated and given wages of the white
Must Be Resourcefnl.
"The engineer must be a man of
resource." said Professor Newell. "He
has to contend with every shade of
difficulty and must have a remedy
According to the speaker, the work
of the drainage engineer must go hand
in hand with that of the Irrigation
man. Many large western areas have
been rendered unsuitable for culti
vation because of the alkali salts
which have been brought to the sur
face by excessive irrigation. This
alkali will destroy all crops on the
land and reduce reclaimed areas to
deserts again, unless proper drainage

international projects, but also with
the interests of the small farmer.
"We are building," he said, "not
only to win the war but also for
civilization throughout the coming
years. The United States must con
serve its food resources, and it can
do this in no better way than by open
ing these western lands for cultiva
tion." The lecture by Professor Newell was
given under the auspices of the so
ciety of Sigma Xi.

Meatless Tuesday Observed
in 1,142 Instances Without
Complaint by Patrons.
Daniel Boone Tavern and
Athens Hotel Also Aiding
in Food Conservation.
Eleven hundred and forty-two meat
less meals were served Tuesday at
the University cafeteria. The saving
was approximately eighty-five pounds
of meat. Not' a complaint was made
to the management, and the students
ate thirteen dozen eggs, six cans of
codfish, twelve cans of salmon and
three gallons of oysters instead.
Yesterday wa3 wheatless day there
and the 100 pounds of white flour
generally used was replaced by corn-
meal in forms of cakes, mush and
bread. Graham muffins and waffles
were offered. The cafeteria does not
profit financially by the change, but
has the satisfaction of materially aid
ing in the food conservation move
The Daniel Boone Tavern has been
serving chicken and corn muffins
every night this week to reduce the
demand for meat and wheat bread.
Next week, Tuesday will be a meat
less and Thursday a wheatless day
there, announces Manager Leonard.
The Athens Hotel has adopted a
similar program. Tuesday, however,
was meatless only at night because
of the hotel's inability to get fish to
substitute for meat.
Fraternities and sororities have
been conserving meat and wheat for
some time as have many boarding
