Pick told a House Public Works
subcommittee on flood control
the Pacific northwest needs for
water development are great. He
said the Columbia River basin
"need s for development are
among the greatest in the na

includes projects for flood con
trol power, irrigation, recreation,
conservation, and navigation.
Demands for flood control were
again emphasized tragically by
the floods of 1948, he said.
Pick said the engineers' pro
gram is expected to provide more
than 6,000,000 kilowatts of power.
He said plans call for extension
of navigation to Lewiston, Idaho,
on the Snake River and to Har
risburg, Ore., on the Willam
ette. The subcommittee, of which
Rep. Davis tD-Tenn) Is chair
man, announced plans for a hear

Basin program. At that time,
Pick said, Army engineers will
present detailed recommenda
