He described the penitentiary
conditions as "shocking, medevlal,
and tragic." He discussed the
needs for prison reform, but more
Important, still, the prevention of
crime by training youths in a pro

citizens, and thus lessen the need

"We in Idaho are unalterably
opposed to the CVA for many
reasons we favor development
of our resources through existing
agencies, generally In accordance
with the coordinated plans of the
Bureau of Reclamation and ine
Corps of Army Engineers.
"We believe )t is entirely un
reasonable to now ask Congress
to give a new board of three
men, no member of which is re
quired to have had any exper

the power to determine whether
this plan and these reports
should be accepted or set aside.

most certainly contrary to the

"The majority of the people
living In the Western States are

McKay said he opposes placing
the economic and political future
of Oregon and the entire Pacific
Northwest "in the hands of an
autocratic federal corporation."
He said the legislation under
study would provide control and
domination by three men who
must subscribe to the philosophy
ot the CVA bill before they can
be appointed directors.

' The Oregon Governor said CVA
proponents do not want the ad
ministration to be answerable to
"I am unalterably opposed to
any such philosophy as contained
In the CVA bill," McKay said.
"I am a strong advocate of an
aggressive and Immediate contin
uance of the plan now well un

development. It is practicable,
has already accomplished much
for the area and should not be
delayed by further-consideration

Rep. Mack (R-Wash) brought
out during questioning of Langlie
that the coordinated report of the
Army Engineers and Reclamation
Bureau has not yet been present
ed to the Budget Bureau for ac

states Involved approved It weeks
"It Is reported." Mack said,
"that It is being held up In hope
of pushing action of the CVA
Langlie cited a long list of
things the CVA hoard could do
under terms of the bill and said
it "is enough to indicate that this
agency would have practically
tree rein to meddle Into every
phase and ramification of life
and industry in our state."
Vie said he believes enactment
of the hill would cause "the great
stnte of Washington to revert to
almost territorial status, with all
Important government functions
supervised by federal officials."
Democrat Walter Pearson. Ore

told the Committee McKay "rep

Injunction Or Seizure
Issue In New Labor Bill
(Continued From Page One)
as he later acknowledged to re
porters. But he fought back hard
He staved off a vote yesterday.
Then, with his support, Senator
Holland (D-Fla) and three other
Senators Hoey (D-N.C), Brick
er (R Ohio), and Schoeppel (R
Kans.) introduced a new 60-day
injunction proposal, with seizure
taken out completely. This was
offered under such parliamentary
conditions as to be voted on be
fore the Lucas amendment.
Thus the issue was narrowing
down in the Senate battle over
strikes imperilling the national
health or safety. The big choice
now Is between the Holland and
Lucas amendments. The decision
will be close.
Lucas told reporters: "What
happens here may determine the
whole course of the labor law."
The Senate Is debating the ad
ministration bill to repeal the
Taft-Hartley Act. Four compro-i
mise amendments have already
been adopted, making the bill
look a little more like Taft-Hartley.
Tal't wants to go further
and write into the bill a long list
of important Taft-Hartley features.
