To The People of Arizona:
Our state, in my opinion • has passed the supreme crisis in the controversy over the Colorado River.
I do not believe that Arizona ever again will( be called upon to face such great opposition as was en
countered during the session of Congress recently recessed. I think that California will not be able again
to muster such support for the Swing-Johnson Boulder Canyon Dam legislation as she commanded, dur
ing the last session of Congress. Every sort of trade was made by representatives of California in or
der to enlist votes for this iniquitious measure. Through continuous and repeated attempts in the con
trolled newspapers to create the impression in the public mind that all those who opposed the Boulder
Canyon Dam Bill were creatures of the power trust, and by threatening to go into the campaigns
against members of Congress who voted against the bill, California was able to intimidate many con
gressmen into supporting the measure contrary to their honest convictions.
The bills will not come before Congress again until after the general elections. At that time I am
convinced more members of Congress will vote on the measure according to their convictions and less
in accordance with what they believe to be political expediency.
Arizona has nothing to fear from a vote on the bills based on their merits. We believe that when
congressmen vote their convictions the Boulder Canyon Dam bill will be overwhelmingly defeated.
The fight is by no means ended. But the final outcome appears more promising provided Arizona
will exercise vigilance to protect her interests. I believe that if the people of Arizona remain alert and
united, we will eventually win a recognition of our reasonable rights and interests in the Colorado River.
We have right, justice and equity on our side and in i the end these principles will prevail.
It is essential to the vital interests of Arizona and her citizens that our people do not become dis
couraged or disheartened, and that they give continued and unqualified support and backing to the
men whom they have designated to represent our statd in the fight to preserve and safeguard our in
terests in the tremendous resources of the Colorado River.
GEORGE W. P. HUNT,
Governor.
