LACK OF MONEY
Fall Down in Payments Will
Prevent Work This Year;
Project is Not Abandoned.
COMMERCIAL CLUBS FORM
Organization Meeting Will,
be Held Next Thursday,
Road Bonding Advocated.
There is no money for the McKay
creek project this year despite the
fact $225,000 had been alloted for
starting operations and though tne
project was authorized when the sun
dry civil bill was passfd on the clos
ing day of the last congress.
This news was made known here
last evening by E. P. Dodd in a talk
at the dinner given at the Klks club to
representatives of the commercial
clubs of the county. Mr. Dodd did not
give details at the time but expressed
deep regret over the lack of headway
on the. project.
In a phone Interview this mornlni?
Project Engineer Schilling at Hermis-
tnn confirmed Mr. Dodd's . report, j
wing to financial conditions funds
anticipated hy the reclamation service
have not materialized. Jn May the al
lotment for the McKay project was re
duced from $225,000 to $125,000 and
it now seems hopeless that even this
amount will be forthcoming. Xo of
ficial word has been received by .Mr.
Schilling but in a letter to Mr. Dodd,
A . P. Davis, head of the reclamation
service, says he sees no hope of funds.
At the present rime the project en
gineer has no instructions to do any
thing towards securing right of way
for the reservoir' site und he has no
idea when funds may be available.
i However 'the project !s approved and
it Is the supposition, the work will be
carried out when money may be had.
At the meeting last evening repre
sesenlatives were present front Pilot
Hock, I'mntilla, Hermlstnn. Stanfield
Echo, Helix, Milton and Pendleton.
The purpose of the meeting was to
take steps towards forming a federa
tion of the Commercial clubs of the
county' and a mot. on that such a fed
eration be formed was unanimously
adopted.. The first meeting of the or
ganization will he held next Tiiursday
evening in Pendleton and each com-
luring the'merc!al club in the counts Is to send
one delegate to the meeting. Free
water, Weston and Athena were 1101
represented last evening and It Is de
sired to have those towns represented
at the meeting next week.

Talks were made by virtually al'
present and the prevailing spirit
strongly favored a united effort in he
half of the county through a federa
tion of the clubs now in existence. Tht
speakers all emphasized the import
ance of the I'mntilla rapids project
the necessUy of developing more irri
gation and land settlement and the
imperative need of more road work.
R. P. Dodd stressed the need of
having the road from Echo to Pendle

lect of the road to rjrant county and
ihe need of improving the John Dn

ABOUT 250,000 POUNDS OF
WOOL CHANGED HANDS AT
AUCTION AT PILOT ROCK
About a quarter of a million
pounds of wool, largely fine
stuff, changed hands today at
the auction held at Pilot P.ock.
The range in prices was from
1 2 !; cents to 1 4 cents on the
coarse wool, and the prices paid
for the fine was between 18 cents
and IS 1,4 cents. The bulk of the
offerings were secured by Alex
Livingstone for the American
Woolen Mills and E. J. Burke of
the E. J. Burke Wool Co. of
Some of the wool men having
the largest clips -were Charley
Johnson, about 50.000 pounds;
J. V. Pedro, 40,000 pounds; A. D.

Entire Protective Force is
on Duty, Danger of Forest
Fires Not Serious Now.
Practically the entire fre protective
fore of he l-'matillu National Forest,
totaling 26 men, including rangers,
lookouts and patrol men, went on du
ty today for service ffurimr the forest
fire season, according to J. C. Kuh in.

tin. several ex-soldie,rs who are luting
vocational training in forestry at the
forestry school at Moscow, Idaho, will
be stationed at various places in the
forest during the summer months and
will secure practical training in for
est service work.
j Pecause of the recent rains in tne
Rlue Mountains, the acute danger of
forest fires has been greatly lessened,
'according to Mr. Knhns. He is not
anticipating that there will be, any
' great difficulty in controlling any fires
I that may Mart. The greatest danger,
I he states, is in the yellow- pine type of
! timber, which is oil the south slo) ?s
and which dries out very quickly.

Although 2D small fires
reported to dale from the
forests of Oregon and w ashington, tne
frequent rains this spring have been
a boon to the forests, and the officers
of the V. S. forest service are mm
relieved at escaping so far a dang
which always keeps them on

The quantity of snow in the high

The government foresters, however,
do not consider that the absence of
large forest fires to date is entirely
due to favorable weather and timely
rains. Not only is the airplane patrol
in Oregon and Washington proving its
value by spotting the stnokes while
they me small, but the protective for-
ces. both state and federal, are better
organized this year to "swat" the
tires. But what is more important,
says Mr. K ihns, is that the public is
becoming interested in forest pre-
