“It was a swell show, but . . .
"That was the plaint of the
squawkel's who met this week
in depleted numbers. They were
referring of course to the Grape
Festival and their numbers were
depleted because they had all
worked so hard on the big show
that they didn’t have energy
enough left to really gripe in
first class fashion.
Fact of the matter. is that they
didn’t have much to gripe about.
One of the spokesmen put it into
words when he said: “The show
was so big and so grand that our
petty little complaints would
sound silly. It was the biggest
show Kennewick or any. town of
'comparable Size ever saw. I know
1 should be squawking about
meaning but actually I can‘t
think of anything.”
RIGHT .
The speaker above was ab
”lntel! right. It was a grand
show. But he was wrong when he
said there was nothing to com
plain about. Naturally . every
mmg didn’t go off just right. The
mare dance contest, for in»
Ignace. missed fire except Sat
urday. The Grape Tours got
fouled up somewhere. But with
minor exceptions, the show was
a; and successful and was all
it set out to be.
WRONG
Two wrongs may make a right
according to some schools of
thought. But the Festival Board
intends to make a right out of
an the wrongs. In other words
board members are fully cogniz
ant of all mistakes and hope to
profit by them. What would help
them most right now\ is an un
dficial vote of confidence. There
will be no official post-festival
meeting of the board until to
night. Members can go in to that
meeting with a lot of confidence
if people in Kennewick will give
them a little pat on the back. It
was a dandy show—everybody

New Dial Phone
System Scheduled
For City In 1949
The Kennefirick Valley Tele
phone company this week an
nounced an expansion and im
provement program that will re
sult in the expenditure of, an es
timated $230,000 in the. next two
years. .
A complete conversion to the
dial system, plus the required out
side engineering work will make
up the total, Burns Brown said to
day.
1 The actual conversion work will
jbegin as soon as equipment can
‘be secured from the manufactur
ers, Brown explained. All work
of assembling and installing the
new equipment will be done in
Kennewick. Nor will the change
reduce the company’s employment
total, he predicted, since increased
traffic loads will require as many
workers as present, even consid
ering the labor saving nature of
the dial system.
Ruefuly recalling that when
the equipment now in service was
put into use in 1941, it was con
sidered sufficient to meet expan
sion needs for the next 30 years,
Brown revealed that the equip
ment on order will permit event
ual utilization of 1000 lines, with
a final peak capacity of 2200 lines.
The 1941 modernization pro
gram stepped up the number of
lines in service from 240 to 360,
and subsequent engineering has
brought the total up to its present
575 lines. Company officials hope
that the next two year's growth
can be handled within the ulti
mate 700 line capacity of the pres
ent _system. _ , _ A
In view of .the existing short
ages of telephone equipment, pro
duced by unprecedented demands
Brown could not estimate a de
finite date for the dial conversion.
However, it is believed that the
work will be finished sometime in
1949.
Aciivians Move
For Attendance ,
Kennewick Active club mem
bers took drastic action at the
regular Tuesday night meeting to
insure increased attendance and
fuller participation in club‘ acti
vities. _A motion was endorsed to
warn inactive members that they
will be dropped from the club
roster to make room for many
prospective new members un‘
less they step up their atten
dance.
A report of the committee in
charge revealed that the club
had made a considerable profit
from their bingo game concession
at the Grape Festival.
The ‘club was thanked for its
participation in various phases
of the festival.

will appear in two installments.
The first. appearing below. tells
of the past development of ,re
clamation. The second part. to
appear next week, presents a
picture of the Bureau’s plans or
development with specific pre
dictions as to the Kennewick
project:
This is a great day in Kenne
wick. l oniy wish Assistant Sec
netary of the Interior William E.
Wame and Commissioner of Re
clamation Michael W. Straus
could be here to join you in
this inspiring crop festival. They
surely appreciated your friendly
invitation to attend but the press
of official business elsewhere
made it impossible for them to be
here. i extend to you their greet
ings. I am sure they will come
another day.
Egry efficient business takes
an ventory at the end of its
calendar or fiscal year. We of
Reclamation, Department of the
Interior. in effect. do likewise. In
the case of Reclamation, however,
a more eflective way at evaluat
ing the assets of this national
program of water and land re
sources development is to ap-'
praise it from a long-range point
of view.
This we can do very effectively
this year, for 1947 is the one
hundredth anniversary of modern
irrigation in the United States.
The Bureau has been in business
theissttSyearsotthisperiod.
It was in 1847 that the followers
of Bring Young broke desert
land in the Salt Lake Valley of
Utah, diverted waters from what
is now City Creek. irrigated their
land. and planted potatoes.
Water We
Today 21,000,000 acres at once
unproductive desert in the 17
Western States have been trans
;tormed through private initiative
and the Bureau of Reclamation
linto fertile (arms. in the wake at
this development have grown
hundreds of thriving cities and
towns, with thousands or in
dustries and other businesses. As
an empire builder, water has
reigned supreme.
In the last 100 years. the
checkerboard of Reclamation pro
jects in the West, has contributed
untold national wealth to the
well-being of the Nation: 1 can
think of no finer example to
illustrate this tact than the
Valley of the Yakima. Here you
can see first hand the results of
the artifical application of water
to the soil. Here sagebrush has
been removed and burned. and
crops made to grow where none
would grow before. Here the
land served a full or partial
supply of water by the Bureau
of Reclamation in 19‘s yielded
crop returns totaling $76,000,000,
value of all the projects in the
West.
This city, with its busy grape
juice plant, its cannery. its
modern service stations. its hotels,
its tine parks. would not be here
as- we see it today but for the
harnessing of the Yakima River,
which flows by not far from
where we now stand. No need
to talk in generalities about Re
clamation benefits. Here in
Kennewick you can see the pro
gram at work. You are living it.

far-reaching benefits of irrigation
