Ditch Digger
Still at Large
after 45 Years
Because he started to dig the ditch
which was to bring the life-giving
irrigation water to Kennewick, Newt
Potter was arrested. He was per
mitted to remain at large on a twen
ty-dollar :bail to be paid when call
ed 'for. That was about forty-five
years ago and the justice hasn’t
called for the twen’ty'yet, he recalled
' Potter, who came to Kennewick
53 years ago, now lives at Ellensburg
where he raises beautiful flowers.
He homesteaded a quarter section
of land about 'two and a half miles
above town on the river road. His
home was located about where the
J. H. Woods place is, between the
hill and the river. -
Charles Lum and C. J. Beach, with
‘Potter, were the first directors of
the Kennewick Irrigation district,j
he said. Because of a conflict be
tween the old Northern Pacific Ir
rigation Co. and the local group,
much depended upon who dug the
first c'irt *for the canal. rWith H. J.
Snively of Yakima, as attorney, the
three directors and some other local
Citizens went to the headgates with
shovels, picks and other tools to
steal a march on the N. P. I. in the
dead of night.
The latter had a crew camped
there and hearing the noise busted
out to :find out what it was all
about. but Potter had already dug
the star-t and they got away with it,
although stopped (by the order from
the justice of the peace at Kiona.
He says he was working in Pasco
a while later than that and "shot
off his mouth” about the way the
-bohunks were robbing everybody.
Said he’d have the gang busted up
in a week if HE was cop. So they
made him deputy sherif-f and he
had six roughnecks in the little six
by eight jail ‘before night—broke
up the ring and finally got appoint
ed constable for Pasco.
Potter is a great one to talk, al
though he has an advantage in
that he can’t hear the replies. He
claims he is known far and wide as
‘The Father df Kennewick” because
of his work in starting the ditch. He
remembers a lot of the old “timers
and among the names he was able
to recall twere Sandermans, Lums,
Clements, Martins, Conways, Beach,
Emigh, Rosencranz and several

scraper Criminal Courts Building
COSting $20,000,000, the luxurious edi
fice is 17 stories high, has 25 two
story court rooms and 835 cells. In
order that prisoners, overwhelming
ly alien or of first- generation alien
origin, may have the best of every
thing America affords, the new
crime center includes beautifully
equipped religious chapels on a re
volving stage, a modern hospital
with costly dental services, an ultra
modern diet kitchen for criminals
desiring special tid—lbits, a roof
garden and dae-luxe nurses apart-i
men-ts. Prisoners are thoughtfully;
screened from public wservance‘

Family—type farmers and small

‘ton County Famm Security Adminis
tration program are being urged to
increase production of milk. chick
ens, eggs and pork this year to in

food aid to Britain and other coun

speculative price rises Increased
home consumption of these products

ESA families can support the
“Food :for Defense” program with
little change in present farm plans
or outlay of additional funds, ex
plamed Branting-ha-m through add
ed {feeding for sustained egg pro
duction and increased milk produc
tion, saving their best heifer calves,

Exp. Station
Friday, July 18 is the date of the
zlst Annual 'Field Day at the Irri
gation Branch Experiment Station
according to a re'oent announcanent
by H. P. Singleton. superintendent.
With the increased interest in both
present and future irrigation agri
culture in the state, there has been
a steady growth in the experimental
work at the station. This growth has
been possible through a larger star-f
and a broadened program of co-;
operative work with various agen-i
cies, particularly Divisions of the
United States Department of Agri
culture. 7
While Ifarmers and others who are
interested" in irrigation agriculture
make frequent use of the experi
mental results through visits to the
station and correspondence, Field
Day offers the greatest opportunity
to get a general picture of the en
tire investigational program. Not
only will all cooperating agencies in
cluding the Washington Agriculture
Experiment Station. and the divis
ions of the United ’States Depart
ment of Agriculture will be at the
station to take part in the direction
of field trips and discussions of the
experimental work.
Field trips will start at 9 am.
and will continue throughout the
day. Also numerous exhibits will
be used to show experimental re
sults. Each visitor will have an
cpporiunity to see those parts of the
experimental work in which he is
most interested. ,
Everyone is invited to bring a
picnic lunch and spend the entire
day an; the station. The Prosser
Commercial Club will serve free
coffee and iced tea.
