THE PIEECE PLAN
In yesterday's Observer the plan
for Irrigating the Grande Ronde val
ley as suggested by , Walter M.
Pierce was given, and it seems to be
a most feasible Idea. But before this
' Is started it will be necessary to hold
' meetings all over the valley and dis
cuss the matter down to the smallest
detail. Ranchers who are making
money on land that . does .. not . .abso
lutely, need . irrigation have a fight to
Investigate the proposed plan with
.he closest scrutiny which will , give
Jlght on " the' matter and without
doubt show that Mr, Pierce has giv
en this great study, . arriving- at a
conclusion that seems a satisfact
ory one. '; . ' : ;-.
- Jn this as in other public matters
Mr. Pierce has kept the welfare of
the valley "uppermost in bis mind,
for this la his home and he would
rather see the Grande Ronde valley
advance than any other part of Ore
gon. V In the- past he thas been a
man who has accomplished large un
dertakings. This " insures a solid
foundation to the new irrigation plan.
His Judgement is good and many ill
be guided by it at least to Bufllctehtiy
interest themselves In a way that
will develop all sides of the question.
, That 1. what this valley wants
a thorough .discussion of the : mer
its of every plan that Is outlined. We
need to have this Irrigation propo
sition talked over at' the fireside of
the home, at the grocery store, in
the lodge room and elsewhere. No
community can deliberate too care
fully on an under taking taht. means
so much for the future as irrigation
means to the Grande Ronde. i : '
