Impractical Suggestion From

Service Has Heads Enough.
Washington, .Tan. 14. (Special)
Senator Hansbroush's latest Intro
duced Irrigation bill providing for
the appointment o; a "constructlm;
engineer" to build sovemment Irrl
eatlon works, at a salary of 110,000
a year, Is receiving a good deal of
unfavorable comment in congression
al and official circles. The measure
practically takes tho work out of tho
hands of the present "Reclamation
Service" which has spent the last
ten years in a close stuciv of western
hydrographlc conditions and irriga
tion projects. It Is the most radical
legislation which has been proposed
In connection with Irrigation and has
attracted some attention, following as
it does, the president's suggestion
that no amending of the irrigation
law is desired null the rovernmcnt
plans are further worked ouL
Personal Direction Needed.
A conscientious "constructing en
gineer." it is held by tho engineering
fraternity, must personally direct tho
construction work under him, and he
cannot be In two 0r more places at
the same time. In other words, each
of the big government Irrigation
works needs Its own construction en
glnecr to watch and pass upon every
Inch of progress.
The present head or the reclamat
ion service- N Frederick H. Newell.
He has the general supervision of
the entire work Including nil the
