WHAT IT COSTS?
With all of the burdeas of war to be con
sidered Congress thru its committees has
not been overlooking domestic affair, as
was evidenced by the news dispatches o
Tuesday morning's papers, which carried
the tentative budgets for the various aov-
There was thru the absence of appropria
tions for Oregon, food fdr hot for Oregon
ians. While such items a-t, $435,000 for King
Hill, $954,000 for Yakima, and other sums
for Okanogan, Minidoka and other projects
in Washington and Idaho formed the burden
ofthe reclamation section, appropriations
lor Oregon reclamation districts could not
be discovered with the naked eye Win is
this the case i Wherein has Oregon sinned
against Congress that it can not get even a
portion of the money that has been taken
from the sale of lands of the state for the
reclamation of the arid region
We will leave the answer to those who are
more familiar with Oregon than we are. but
can not do .so without this observatien: it is
time that Orcgonians awakened to the situa
tioii and sent men down to Washington who
Msses.s that peculiar business ahilitv com
bined with personality which makes them
popular with their fellow members and
"gets results for their state."
COLONEL WOOD'8 REPORT
Ool. C. E. S. Wood in so manv words
told the landowners of the Warmsie ings'
District at Vale yesterdav that the commit
tee which the district sent to Washington
last winter, "had the money," w ;- h which to
build 'he Warmsprings' reservir and dis
tribution system, when by reason of the
announcement of :be private sale of the
bondl icreed the withdrawl of the bills.
What ever doubts existed in the mind o
anyone foncerning the reliability of ( oL
Wisal's Ktatement was disolvt1 by the v

While this is true, now is not the time for
postmortems. It is the right time to forget
the past and to dig in and get that woucy
from the present Congress. There exists a
general and well sustained belief that the
war wil! ! bl over for from two to three
v ears, at least, and foot! will be even more es
sential for tin success of the allied armies
during each successive year than it has dur
ing the past years, therefore any project
which possesses possibilities of increasing
the crop ana within a year will be given
favorable consideration, at Washington.
