THE LARGEST IN THE WORLD.” BY SENATOR FRED T. COLTER PUBLISHER'S NOTH.- Tile practical experience of Fred T. Col ter in reclaiming Arizona lancte is, perhaps the most extensive of any in the State, as he has built and put under operation six of his own private reclamation projects. He has frequently sacrificed his person al interests in his effors in behalf of Arizona, and the sincerity of his purpose is unquestioned. Arizona won her greatest victory by defeating th e Colorado River Compact as formulated at Santa Fe, New Mexico; thereby retaining her inherent rights in the irrigation waters and electric power sites in the Grand Canyon of the Colorado i Gila River. These rivers open the way for Arizona’s development of j the largest reclamation and power project in th e world. There is not a single avenue the Pact provides that we do not al ready have better provisions, quicker and more equitable means whether it is to file on, develop or any act in Arizona on the Colorado river or settle any disputes, or have conference with any one or six other states, not mentioning the rights we relinquished under the Pact. The Pact takes away from Ari zona and give to Mexico's Foreign and b*g land owners and prohibits the many Proposed projects from using the surplus waters. In addition to complicating Ari zona’s power sites, the pact de cides definately only two points:lt makes clear Mexico's allocation of water. It also defines that th 0 upper basin states shall have 3even and one half million acre feet, and eight and on e half million acre feet in the lower basin states, (includ ing the Gila rives in the lower basi” states). The states of each basin must decide their different alloca tions, and herein lies many dis putes and endless litigation. Under the Pact surplus water goes to Mex ico as well a sthe return flow and *-44 ♦ 4 444 4 I 4 ♦ > »♦♦♦ :: “JUST WRIGHT” :: Shoes for Men < ► o Union Made NELSON SHOE CO. 42 West Washington St. Phoenix, Arizona ♦* < ► HOLDS -»4r Money, Prosperity jjfy ' -Sf Success A Healthy Scalp— Long* Wavy Hair— &* i -si- and a Lovely Complexion.

(The lower basin cannot possibly take the surplus, again in Article VIII of the Pact as states.) but Mexico’s allocation to millions of acres must be main tained at the expense of both the upper and lower basin states, even to the appropriation of the water of the Gila river for this purpose. This is plainly stated in the Pact in Article 3. paragraph C., as fol lows: “If such surplus shall prove insufficient fir this purpose, the burden of the dlfflciency shall ho borne equally by the upper and lower basin.’ God only knows how far reaching this provision may be, Mexico’s big land monopolists could even take the waters from the com pleted projects as well as from the State. Neither can the many propos ed projects utilise the surplus waters. Possible Development Enormous Without the Pact and Great pros perity to the entire State and the Salt River Valley Immediate. Under the Grand Canyon Gila High Lin e Project, the largest In the world, more than a million acres surrounding Phoenix and near by towns with their paved roads extending in all directions, as well * as millions mor e scattered over the State would be placed under per petual production. Over a million and a qharter horse power of elec tricity can be generated in the Main high line canal, which will pay for the entire project. Imagine if you can, the tremendous develop ment incident to the accomplish ment of this gigantic scheme. Im agine the millions of capital and people coming here to take advan tage of cheap power and to secure the reclaimed state and public lands, also patented lands. It means the building of large manufactur mg concerns, automobile plants, new cities and towns, Capital and people come immtdlately to places where big enterprises are under way.
