San Diego Is planning to have the most wonderful Irrigation exhibit that lias ever been shown In the his tory of the world at her exposition, and as we have 1400 acres of ground there for our site right In the heart of the city, I am hopeful that this state will make the especial irrigation exhibit. I believe that some one of the big proj ects could be reproduced there In min iature and thon around this could be arranged models of each one of the several projects In the state and that such an exhibit would prove more at tractive than anything that could be shown. It would advertise Idaho as the irrigation state of the Union and those who saw the exhibit at San Diego would want to return east by the w,ay of the state and see these things for them selves." Mr. Fox gays they are making won derful progress at San Diego and that the commissions from Arizona and New Mexico have Just been there and se lected their sites and each has recom mended to their state that $350,000 be appropriated at the next session of the legislature for participation.
