"Newell paid aome attention to lie
action w took at the Bonanza meeting,"
said Jacob Rueck, one of the director
of the Water User' Association and n
landowner In the Upper project, when
speaking about the meeting recently
held to determine tion some action to
be taken If the Reclamation Service
ahould refuse to reconsider the bid on
the Clear Lake dam and deeido not to
begin work on that part of tho project
this year. Mr. Rueck continued, "We
atleastgot an answer to our telegram,
and that I more than tho association
got to the tolegrams sen', out by order
ol the aitoclatlon when in session In
Klamath Falls. Director Newell tele
graphed the committee that as soon as
we had 80 per cent ol the lands signed
up he would begin work on the dam.
We bare almost that now, counting the
land that are signed conditionally, and
wa are going to make an effort to get
the balance at once."
Mr. Rueck wa not informed a to
how Director Newell prop aed to do the
work, whether by contract, or by force
account. Should be undertake it by the
force account It 1 very provable that be
will meet with considerable opposition,
as many ol the landowner in that sec
tion are bitterly opposed to that form of
It i apparent from the telegram sent
by Mr. Newell that his chief reason (or
the rejection of the bids on the dam was
because the required per cent of the
land hai not been ttgned up with tho
Government. Mr. Rueck think that
with Director Newell' promlte that he
will begin work on th dam jutt a toon
a the required amount of land 1 tlgned
(or Irrigation, there will not be much
difficulty in getting moat of the land
remaining unsigned under contract (or
water. At the present time about 74K
per'centof the lands are signed con
ditionally and unconditionally.
