Some people can not ( understand WHY it costs money to I publish a newspaper but this is f not surprising since many people i understand next to nothing. The I greatest curse in the World is still ignorance, and strange but true, i much of this ignorance comes from those reputed to be learned in j book lore. Some time, we may en- j joy More’s Utopia but that would not work either because there | would be no need for newspapers and lawyers. Guess we better for get about this Utopia.

Notice of 2nd Ap portionment of Stored and Pumped Water The first apportionment of stored and pumped water for lands on the San Carlos Project for the Calendar Year 1939 was made by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs and approved by the Secretary of the Interior on January 25, 1939, to the amount of 1.013 ac. ft. per acre. This was based on the amount of 4,310 ac. in the San Carlos Reservoir on January 1, 1939, and the making available of 100,000 ac. ft. from the pumps op erated in project irrigation wells, or a total of 104,310 ac. ft. It was estimated that 3,000 ac. ft of water will be reqiured for Federal and State agencies. Municipalities and schools, so that under the first apportionment a net of 101,310 ac. ft. of water was available at source of supply and subject to transporta tion and evaporation losses. Since that time an additional amount of 25,570 ac. ft. of water came into San Carlos Reservoir so that it reached its maximum storage capacity so far during the present season of 29,880 ac. ft. on April 11th. A new apportionment of this increase is hereby made to the 100,000 acres of land within the project and at the rate of .2557 ac. ft. per acre measured at the source of supply. This makes the total apportion ment for the Calendar Year 1939 i to date of 1.2687 ac. ft. per acre measured at the source of supply and subject to evaporation and transportation losses. In order that the land owners ; may know what to expect as to j the amount of w'ate,r which mav be delivered to their lands out of the total amount at source of supply, it is estimated that 1.0 ac. ft. per acre will be available at the farm. This order applies to all lands under constructed ditches ready for irrigation, and the stored and the pumped water shall be de livered in the same proportion per acre to each acre cultivated in so far as the physical conditions per mit, and shall be subject to the basic charges and per acre limita tions provided in the order authorizing the assessment of operation and maintenance charges against the lands of the project. The delivery of pumped water as j herein apportioned will necessarily be limited each day to the ability of the project to supply power for the operation of the pumping plants, also to the ability of the lands to make proper use of the water from the w’ells w'hich can be operated. It is possible that 'additional* water will reach the San Carlos Resevoir and become available for apportionment later in the season of 1939, and in that event the pro ject landowners will be duly noti fied in advance of any additional apportionments. o Farm Bureau Will Meet May 9th Fred Wuertz, president of the Coolidge Farm Bureau, announced today that A.
