Appreciates Paper
One of our subscribers expresses
himself very emphatically in a
letter which we print in part, j
thanking him for his co-operation: '
“The Coolidge Examiner
Coolidge, Arizona.
“I am enclosing money order to
cover subscription to The Coolidge ;
' Examiner. 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. In truth, we
are a Hell of a distance from it

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
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
