defend themselves against the
older bucks before the older ones
had "come out of the velvet."

STATE FARM BUREAU PRESIDENT
ADVOCATES BUILDING UMATILLA
RAPIDS PROJECT BY THE PUBLIC
Power Resources of State
That the Umutllla rapids project
should be developed and that its de
velopment not await the pleasure of
the private electric corporations Is the
view of Oeorgc A. Mansfield, president
of the Oregon state farm bureau fed
eration. In the' following letter to the East
Oregonian Mr. Mamsfield gives bJs
vlewa on the subject.
I nmtilla Power Project
My attention was recently called to
your advocacy of this project, and an
editorial In one of the leading I'ort
ind dailies opposing an appropriation
by the government for the purpose of
developing th.s project. Am I under--

I erable part of ths year. This would
furnish light, power and heat eionom-J
It-ally to numberless enterprises and
thousands of acret of land now un
productive and open the river, with
proper provision to navigation. , .
This opposition' is based upon the
grounds that it is much better to leawe
the development of all such projects to
private capital and asserts that ex
perience has taught that our control of
public 'utility corporations ha proven
so effective, that we need lint fear
that they will not j.roperly serve the j
public. Exactly the contrary is true.
Experience has proven that when the
control of these great natural resour-1
ces pass Into the hands of capital thej
people are exploited in a way and that i
no machinery we have so far devised j
is able to properly control them. Onj
the contrary they have come to con
