(Nevada Siate Journal)
Boulder Dam. the greatest pro
posed electrical and irrigation
pioject in the worid, is the feature
of ihe Clara county extotbit at the
state building.
A suggestion of what the con
struction of the dam will mean to
southern Nevada is visualized in
a painting which is nine feet long
and five feet wide and covers
part of the back wall of the ex
hibit. •
It depicts the Las Vegas dis
trict with the Las Vegas range
and the Virgin mountains in the
background. In the foreground
is the artjst’s conception of the
completed dam— i. solid wall of
concrete and iron, rising approxi
mately 66 et 'high on the tower
ing walls Black Canyon. The
.iver at this point is 290 feet
wide, according to L. J. Oakes,
Las Vegas photographer, who ar
ranged and has charge of the ex
hibit. The walls of the canyon,
lie said, rise 1200 feet abpve the
iij of the river at the dam site.
At the base of the dam is de
picted the huge ibuildings in which
,ihe power will be generated, and
leading away from them is the
power line, running to Las Vegas
and branching off to Los An
In the center of the picture is
the city of Las Vegas with its
proposed $500,000 hotel, on which
construction will commence Aug.
1 Spreading away on every sidej
are acres of fertile farming and
ranching land. In the distance
may be seen the towns of Glen
dale, Overton, St. Thomas, Bunk
erville, Arden, LogaSdale and
rne scenic spins oi cue uiduim
are also shown: Nevada’s fam
ous buried Indian city, the Valley
of Fire and the mysterious hidden
forest. Across the scene runs the
Arrowhead Trail, dark county's
principal highway, which connects
Salt Lake City and Los Angeles.
The visualization is the work of
C. S. Forncrook of Los Angeles.
Nearby Is an enlarged photo
graph which shows the immense
area which will |be covered by
water when the dam is completed.
The reservoir site is 83 miles
iong and 30 miles wide. In order
lo give a better conception of its!
size, Oakes explained that it will
he longer by 15 miles than from
Reno to Fallon and as wide as
from Reno to Carson City.
Another huge picture enlarged
from a negative by Oakes himself
and printed and colored by Dan
Wass of Los Angeles, show-s the
gigantic walls of the proposed
dam site.

lit is the property of the Union
i Pacific. At one time the railroad
! company attempted to control the
j flow, Oakes said, but the force of
i water started to raise the 12-inch
I casing with its five-ton cement
I anchor. The wells is one mile
j from I-as V egas. The other photo
' graph shows a similar scene at
j the ranch of Jolhn Russell. Oake3
| explained that there were more
i than 100 artesian wells in the
I vicinity and that they supplied
I all the water needed for domestic
{and farming purposes.
Clark county also has mineral
! specimens on exhibit. Among
* thede are manganese ores from
j the property of Dr. Roy Martin, 12
miles from Las Vegas; zinc ore
; from the Yellow Pine -mine in the
Goodspring: district; and a 100
} pound sample of ore from the
Stiles Brothers’ strike at Eldorado
Canyon which assays $28,000 per
