Engineers Welcome Flood
As Chance to Test Plans

Last week's snow and rain
storms were welcomed by at least
twp Salem persons. These were
Cupper and Simpson, who com
prise the local firm that has drawn
plans for Salem's drainage system.
The plans had been approved by
the council, but Cupper and Simp
son nevertheless, wanted to study
the situation under flood condi
tions. "We've been waiting for a sit
uation Jike this for two years,"
declared Percy A. Cupper. After
a final check is made on the
plans they will be turned over to
Hugh Rogers,4 city engineer. This
will be within the next ten days,
he indicated. Rogers is- expected
to start construction of the drain
age system within a short time
after he receives the plans.
Three Main Channels
In outlining how the drainage
system will operate. Cupper stated
that the general idea Is to catch
flood water at the city limits, and
by means of ditches and dikes turn
it into three main channels. These
three channels will be North Mill
Creek, the Shelton street ditch,
and Pringie Creek. The Oxford
street ditch, which ntfht be re
garded as a fourth maid channel,
flows into Pringie creek a short
distance inside the city limits.
The first attempt to solve the
drainage problem for Salem was
made several years ago. An effort
was made to organize a drainage
district and control the flood wa
ters near their source, but it was
found that the district would not

meeting of the congregation wiL'
be held Tuesday afternoon at 2:00

Heine, also announces.
Revival services will be conduct
ed each night this week, beginning
tonight, at the church of the Naz

E. F. Wilde in charge. Evangelis'
and Mrs. Wilde will also have
charge of the music for the ser

is completed it is expected to turn
all the water between the Turner
road and the Shelton street ditch
into the Shelton street ditch. The
ditch has Its origin near the city
limits and flows In a westerly di
rection as far as the municipal
auto park, where it Joins Pringie
creek. Dikes will also be erected
along the city limits northeast
from the Shelton street ditch,
which will turn the water back
into the ditch from that direction.
The entire system, which will
cost some $17,500, will handle
flood waters amounting to 4000
cubic feet per second.
South of the Turner road the
water will be-'guided directly Into
Pringie creek and also into the
Oxford street ditch, which flows
into Pringie creek from the north
and east. The same general me
thod of dikes and ditches will be
utilized. Farther north the flood
water will be turned into North
Mill creek. It Is estimated that
North Mill creek will handle 1500
cubic feet of water per second, the
Shelton street ditch will take care
of an equal volume, and Pring!
creek will carry off 1000 cubic
feet of water per second. In case
of a tremendous flood, the ditch
running beside the Turner road is
capable of handling several hun
1red additional cubic feet per sec
ond. As an Interesting development
growing out of the drainage agi
tation, although not directly con
nected with It, Cupper and Simp
son are planning to irrigate some
10,000 acres southeast of Salem
some time In the future. An
nouncement to this effect was
made about ten days ago when a
filing was made with the state en
gineer. Cupper expresses the be
lief that it will be possible even
tually to work out a drainage sys
tem that will prevent the water
from spreading. This will elimi
nate the necessity of dikes and
ditches at the city limits of Salem.
The irrigation system would be
operated in conjunction with this
