Army Engineers
Favor Building
Umatilla Dam
Districts Urging Con
gress Hurry Sanction
of Project as Relief
‘ Without further development of
the transportation facilities of the
Columbia River. the fullest benefits
from the irrigation end of the Cou
lee project will nevex‘ be achieved, it
was pointed out to those who recent
ly attended a banquet following an
open river meeting in Lewiston.
Chief factor in this development is
the construction of the Umatilla‘
Dam. This, with three others up
the Snake river, will comprise the}
opening of navigation from Lewis
ton to the sea. ,
Army engineers have made rec
ommendations to congress for the
improvement of the channels and
the building of the four new dams.
Co. Robins, announced at the meet
“Instead of expending $12,000,000
to $15,000,000 in the dredging of a
six-foot channel, it is more feasible
to contemplate the construction of
the Umatilla dam and locks.
“It is a dificult task to make it
a cold-blooded case of engineering
and to recommend the expenditure
of between $50,000,000 and $60,000.-
000 between Umatilla and Lewiston
and the engineers have been requir
ed to show a Justification for the
proposed expense. Billions are being
expended for work relief and this
project offers unlimited possibilities.
The engineers have endeavored to
show an actual saving sufficient to
pay for the cost of construction thru
the irrigation of adjoining areas,.the‘
development of power, the crea-‘
tion of additional tonnage and manyl
indirect benefits. We once had a
low-dam series dream, but that has‘
been discarded in favor of the sug
gested expenditure of $30,000,000 at
Umatilla and the four dams on the
upper river.
“The Snake and Columbia. rivers
have fascinated me ever since I be
came associated with the army en
gineers in this district because of
their constituting a wonderful trade
route to the seas. I have done what
I could to get the improvement plan
on a working basis.’ I believe that,
under the leadership of Lt. Col. Lee
the engineers will be able within a
few years to make navigation possi
ble from the Pacific to Lewiston.
To bring about these results you
people who now present a united
front, must continue to fight the
battle. If you proceed in the prop-‘
er manner with the people unitedj
ifrom Lewiston to The Dalles, never;
itake ‘no’ for an answer'and keep
on keeping on, you will wear some-‘
‘body down,” Col. Robins said.
‘ B. M. Huntington, Walla Walla, in
speaking about Col. Robins at the
meeting, credited him with pushing
navigation up the Columbia 200
miles during the past four years. He
{asserted that transportation of a
bushel of wheat from Lewiston to
tidewater now costs 18c and that
with river transportation available
this figure should be reduced to 7c
to 9c per bushel. ' '
The construction of the Umatilla
Dam will mean much to this par
ticular area, both in the increase in
the value of property and the re
duction in freight rates to the sea
board. In the opinion of many in
formed persons this project is the
most important—and at the pres
ent time—the livest possibility in the
development of the Northwest. Also,
with the imminent expenditure of
huge government sums in the form
of relief, such a permanent project
would prove an ideal time and place
for the expenditure.
Some of the towns between Ken
newick and The Dallas are making
determined efforts to have the Um
atilla Dam brought to the atten
tion of congress. Well organized
campaigns are now being conducted
for this purpose, the town of Her
miston having raised a fund and
has a. man in charge of the work.

Plan WPA Projects
for Improvement
Mr. Thomas, district supervisor
for the WPA appeared before the
chamber of commerce today to urge
the businessmen to take advantage
of the opportunities for public im

tional administration. Under the
new public works program, federal
grants as well as loans will be avail
able to municipalities for all sorts
of improvements, and the super-‘
visors are anxious to have this dis-‘
trict inaugurate such activities.
A proposition seeking the endorse
ment of the chamber for the estab-
lishment of a radio broadcastma
station at Pasco was turned over
to a committee for consideration.

Local Cannery
to Begin Season’s
Pack Next Week
The Kennewick Cannery will be
ready to start operations on Sat
‘urday of next week. Mrs. Caroline
Klitten announced today. It is
hoped ,that by that time the offer
:ings will be sufficiently large to
Justify full time operation.
‘ “We could start immediately."
‘Mrs. Klit-ten said. “but it would be
on a part time basis and we’d ra
ther wait until enough grass is in
sight to give the workers a better
chance to get in full time. Part
time operation is not profitable
from the cannery standpoint and it
is not satisfactory for the workers.
Outlook for a satisfactory run is
fairly good. We have had no dif
ficulty in disposing of all the as
paragus the local plant can process."
Green grass markets dropped
ferings. and most of the product is‘
now going to the processing plants.‘
although some quantity is still being
supplied to Northwest markets in
the iz-pound boxes. Prices are
around 75 cents. and at this figure
the cannery prices are almost equal.
Prices for the ‘cannery stock run
from five to five and a half cents,
with free collections.
