NO. 300 SAVE WATER, ENLARGE PROJECT SUGGESTIONS OF NORTHSIDE FARMERS Impelled by Criticism of the Reclamation Service, Chief Engineer Davis Says Only Error is in Neglect of Publicity FARMERS SPEAK AT HEARING O'Donnell Gives Whole some Advice About Wa ter Economy Plans Sug gested Optimism Fea ture of First Meeting Expansion with building of re sources. Immediate expansion and fixing of limit. Leaving project In hands of recla mation service until enough more sources, of water supply are provided to take care of the contracted area. Those were the three main plans discussed by the water users of the north side 1 the public hearing with the reclamation commissioners, Da vis and O'Donnell and the survey board. Spurred by criticism of the recla mation service. Chief Engineer Ar thur Powell Davis, who built the dam, and who has been one of the most influential friends of the "first project" entered into a stirring de fense of the organization. It was an item not down on the program, and for which no five minute limit had been set. "The only way in which the recla mation service has erred has been in a lack of frankness with the farm ers," declared the speaker. "And that condition has been improved, is still being improved. The main fault you can find with ns is that we have failed to take you into our confi dence. After many years on the in side of many big enterprises in the service I find that the want Of pu blicity among the ultimate consumers of our product Is our greatest error, j "We specially invite constructive criticism. In this statement, I think I answer the gentleman who has just asked why, if the governors and council of the water users have passed favorably on this project limit proposition, the matter should be re ferred to individual water users. "We are coming right down on the ditch bank to discuss this matter with you. You know the secretary has said that the man who can't get along with the farmers has no busi ness in the maintenance and opera tion department, no matter how ef ficient a worker he may be." Mr. Davis' little burst was well re ceived. IB had been suggested that if the reclamation service had wanted to play fair, or had been entirely on its job, it would have provided so that some of the lands now in cul tivation or now being prepared for crops, would not have to suffer ex clusion from the benefits of the sys tem. The breaking of tha reserve, that led to this forceful statement oc curred after O'Donnell, Davis and Hanna had spoken, and after a great number of water users had, contribut ed their five minute speeches. There was not as large a crowd as was ex pected, but this, according to Presi dent Orme, is a good sign indicating that there are not as many dissatis fied ones on the north side as the arrangers had looked for Farmer O'Donnell O'Donnell was introduced to the crowd as a practical farmer who had been requested to come to the front and give the other farmers on irri gated lands the benefit of 'the ex perience and knowledge that has made him a rich man. Several times during the day, the supervisor or ir- rigation was called upon to explain knotty points of irrigation methods. The speaker has a bit of a brogue. He speaks quickly and incisively, and these things made him popular. As for what he had to say, it was sim ' (Continued on Page Six.)

"The President and Mrs. Wilson announce the engagement of their youngest daughter, Eleanor Randolph, to Hon. William Gibbs McAdoo."

The youngest of the family. Miss Eleanor, is said to be her father's pet and there is a strong personal friendship between the president and the man who is to marry his daugh ter.

"A decided aversion to cigarettes will re sult in every instance," says Lucy Page Gaston, president of the league. "Fifteen women have already been treated by us. Our first feminine ap plicant was a chorus girl, who began luffing cigarettes in a spirit of bra vado. One of her associates taught her how to inhale, and the habit ob tained such a hold on her that she often rose In the night for a smoke." FISH GETS FIVE YEARS ASSOCIATED PRESS DISPATCH!

Bryan said he did not reply direct ly to the recent Cairanza notes on the Benton case, but set forth the wish of the American government with respect to the Spanish subjects whom the Spanish minister had asked the United States to protect.
