cheduled to Mart at 1 o'clock on the

and all west end towns and Pendleton
have been urged to send delegates.
At a meeting of the Commercial As
sociation hoard of managers yesterday
afternoon the subject was up for dis

already appointed consists of Mayor

The subject of generating power at
I'matilla rapids has been discussed for
years but recently the proposition has
assumed new importance because of
the growing oil shortage and high
costs etc. Since the subject was taken
up hy boosters for the cause they have
found much encouragement in govern
ment reports on surveys and from such
engineers as John H. I-ewis, former
stale engineer of Oregon.
Mr. Lewis is optim'stic over what
might be n"enmpMsheH by damming
tho Columbia at I'mntilla rapids and
, .... .
using the power for irrigation pumpin
and other uses. In this connection the
railroads come to the front because the
eventual electrification of northwest
roads seems to te in the cards.
Mr. Lewis may attend tho meeting
at I'matilla but if .Ire cannot do so he
will be asked to attend a later meeting
to be held at Pendleton.
