I *• that which was developed in Senate hearings. In addition, it is generally ex pected that the arguments of conservationist groups which oppose Echo Park Dam, one of the key projects in the over-all program, will carry more weight among House members than they'did in the Senate.. The dam is projected for j construction in Dinosaur Na-1 tional Monument, a Federal. park area in Northwestern l Colorado. Its reservoir would partly flood the preserve. The bill would authorize con : struction of six dams and 12 irri gation units in Colorado. Utah, i Wyoming, New Mexico and Ari 1 zona. These would cost a total of: 81.082,099.800. Senator Watkins. Republican, of Utah, in a statement following Senate passage, said he is con vinced that House approval will come. Opponents of the bill in the Senate went down fighting. Senator Douglas, Democrat, of Illinois, called It a “lavish, ex travagant, unjustified program.” Senator Fulbright, Democrat, of Arkansas, said the develop ment particularly is not justified now. with the Nation trying to get rid of food surpluses.

Eastland Hopes Probe Will PutMatusow in Jail Br the AuocltM Free* Senator Eastland, Democrat, of Mississippi, terming Harvey Matusow "the most vicious liar” he has ever met, said today he hopes his investigation has pro vided grounds for jailing the turnabout witness on some charge Senator Eastland heads the Senate Internal Security sub committee, which ended yester day an investigation designed to show whether Matusow was act ing as a tool of Communists in repudiating his earlier testi mony. > Matusow now says he lied : when he accused hundreds of i : persons of affiliation with the Reds, while testifying as a "pro jfessional witness.” He says he is a former Communist. Faces Texas Sentence Mgtusow hold the subcommit tee yesterday that “If I go to jail. I’m going to go proudly.” | He is free on bond now while fighting a three-year prison sen tence for contempt of a Texas ; court. Senator Eastland said he hopes “within just a few days” to write a report of findings to j be sent to the Justice Depart ment. He said he took Matu sow’s latest testimony only be cause “I desired to strengthen the record on certain points in case there is some action in the courts.” And the Senator said he hopes the Government will find some means to cancel the 816-a-month veteran’s pension Matusow said he now draws for a back injury during World War 11. Senator Eastland said he will ask the Justice Department to explore the record of Matusow’s six days of testimony for evi dence of perjury, defrauding the Government in connection with the disability pension, obstruc tion of justice or other offenses. Gave Five Explanations v Matusow acknowledged he has given the Army five different stories about how he fell and injured his back. Subcommittee Counsel J. G. Sourwine asked j how it happened that the record ! showed these differing versions. “Boy, I got lousy balance,’’ Matusow suggested. He also said “I might have had gangplank fever—the war was still on.” Gangplank fever is a term sol diers use in a sense definable as | “scared I might get sent over- I seas.” Matusow served in Europe :in the war, and insists his in* jury is real and painful. The subcommittee placed to evidence a report from the Jus tice Department saying that 90 per cent of all persons Matusow had linked to communism as a Government witness were sim ilarly identified by other wit nesses or by independent evi dence in its files. It said none of the other 10 per cent were "defendants or principals” in the cases, and that the files contain nothing to dis prove that they had ties to ; communism.
