Par ticular stress is laid also on the fa vorable attitude of President-elect Harding and the republican party to ward the development of the resources of the western states. Extracts from the bulletin follow: “Significant developments are oc curring in Washington at this time which will be of much importance to our association. Th's is the report we are getting from a number of mem bers of congress from the western states and also from unprejudiced private sources not interested in re clamation development in the West. “An agency in the national capital in a leter to clients under date of No vember 6 contains this paragraph: “ ‘Western members of congress are quietly organizing to put over a three hundred million dollar reclamation program. It is predicted that with the Republican party pledged, through its president-elect and national platform, to a great and comprehensive plan, ttiat development may be expected to take place, if not during the short session, at the regular session in March.’ “When such news as this, coupled with the avowed declaration of former opponents of reclamation on impor tant house committees, that they could | now see a reason for a strong federal ' program, it is our belief that we may i be optimistic. I “Beginning Wednesday, November 24. a reresentativ- of the Western States Reclamation association began a series of conferences in Washing ton with political and legislative lead ers with the intention of recommend ing to the executive committee of the association the complete suggestions as to the part which the association must play during the short session and if necessary heading up to the regular session in furthering our cause. “In connection with the results of the recent election, it is interesting to repeat the platform declaration of the Republican par f y, which said: ‘We favor a fixed and comprehen sive policy of reclamation. We recog nize in the development of reclama tion through Federal action with its increase of production and taxable wealth as a safeguard for the nation. “ ‘We commend to Congress a policy to reclaim lands and the establish ment of a fixed national policy of de velopment of natural resources in re lation to reclamation through the now designated agencies.’ “On August 30, speaking before a group of western governors who call ed to pay their respects, Senator War ren G. Harding, (now president-elect) while giving an extremely favorable address said among other things: i j “ ‘I undertake to say that there is no region in the world whose re ! sources could be developed to the ut most with greater benefit to the world as a whole, and America in particu lar, than our mountains west. * * * I would not hesitate to employ Feder al credit for * * * reclamation work. What is really needed is the comple tion of the reclamation grogram which began * * * 1913. We ought, to go on with a larger and more liberal plan made pratical in the light of our experience.’ “it is a pleasure fo'announce that it will be possible to again secure the highly efficient, services of former Governor Spry of Utah to look after the interests of the association during the short session. “At the August meeting of the ex ecutive committee and representatives of the leading western railroads, a sufficient budget was planned and its probable expenditures outlined to take care of the matters of the West ern States Reclamation association and its activities through the short session. This budget anticipated the publicity and legislative plan outlined at that meeting. It covered the mat ter of the different states in the as sociation paying the balance of its original budget created a year ago in Salt Lake City and a like amount was pledged from the railroads represent ed. This was considered at the Au gust meeting to he sufficient for the association’s needs and was formed af ter due consideration had been given to accomplishments during the year and the necessities of the future. “It was advised at that time that each state be communicated with in view of our impending sessions of leg islatures and that these legislatures be asked to approriate an amount equal to the original sum apportioned to the different states, to be used when needed in future activities of the association.”—Los Angeles Exam iner. o INTERESTING BITS OF NEWS GATHERED FROM ALL OVER There are eight million unnatural ized aliens in the country.

Tucson, Ariz., —With all the cotton of the Santa Cruz valley baled and awaiting marketing, the farmers arc awaiting advance in prices, while buy ers are bearing the market. Little has been sold except for emergencies at prices around 50 cents, although there have been sales as low as 45 cents. Fifty cents does not pay for the cost of production, it is claimed. The surplus of the labor is great as the result of the conclusion of the picking. In the valley there is no market for the cotton seed. This, however, does not cause any anxiety. Last year meal sold for S7O per ton md seed was shipped south to he milled and meal sent back. The local growers are urging a re duction to 2 1-2 cents for pickers, al though the growers’ association is in sisting upon 4 cents, since the picking now being done is merely scrapping and pickers cannot earn much at 4 cents. The farmers are a unit in declaring they will hold their staple indefinite ly for 60 cents as a minimum.
