THE outstanding facts about the Umatilla rapids project as
disclosed bv the Lewis report are that the project is bigger
yet more feasible than we supposed and the chances for
early action are bright, ihat is saying muen dui me circum-
nnnn Mtink na fi-k incf l'-ft' rinfllTllcm
Though the project calls for the ultimate development of
half a million horse power the conditions are favorable to de
velopment by units. The first unit suggested would call for but
50,000 horse power of primary power and 130,000 horse power
for irrigation, the total cost of this project being $12,100,000.
Now this secondary power could be used for watering land ad
jacent to the power site and it would only be necessaiy to ar
range for the use of the 50,000 horse power of primary power to
make the project suitable for action by the reclamation service.
In disposing of this primary power two courses would be
t pen, one the direct marketing of this power by the government,
the second the handling of the power through existing power
companies. It has been strongly intimated that the power com
panies would be glad to get this cheap power. There is every
reason why they should want it for it would lower their average
power cost and allow of a reduction in rates to the public. It
would be strange if the companies did not eagerly grasp such an
opportunity and should they show a contrary spirit it would be
appropriate for the public service commissions of Oregon and
Washington to inquire as to why a public utility should prefer
to get power exclusively from expensive sources .when cheaper
power might be had.
Assuming that the primary power can be disposed of through
enmiBeUnn with n annpr tinwpr line sprvinsr all rprrions in the
northwest, and it is a reasonable assumption, our main fight is
ever. It would then only be necessary to induce the reclamation
service to take up the project. If the McNary irrigation meas
ure passes this should not be a difficult task because there will
then be money available and we will have a good project ready
for work. Needless to say the Umatilla rapids project would
loom strong under such a situation because it would mean much
to both Oregon and Washington, from a power as well as from
an irrigation standpoint. Senator McNary is chairman of the
irrigation committee, is the author of the bill that promises to
provide the money, the director of the reclamation service has
already expressed his interest in the matter. The reclamation
service has a project of this sort in Idaho now. The McNary ir
rigation measure is regarded as likely to pass because it has
the administration support and such a bill is called for by the
republican and democratic platforms.
To sum it up, the Umatilla rapids project is almost on he
way and while there will be contingencis to meet it looks lit
all can be met. The spotlight of interest just now is turned oh
the electric companies and their managing heads. If these in
t rests cooperate as it seems reasonable th"y should they will be
in line to serve themselves as well as the public. If they take a
"dog in the manger ' attitude they will delay the move but they
v.'ill then have an aroiiied public to deal with and the threat of
not only public development of power but public operation as
veil. . They will be wise to choose the path of cooperation.
A few months ago when this movement was undertaken at
the February meeting in Pendleton and at the initial meeting at
"Umatilla the project was nebulous and all thought we had a
'long road to travel. We now have a concrete proposition to
work with and from all appearances we" are "sitting pretty."
All this is very gratifying because it is unnecessary to dwell on
the fact that this immediate region and the whole northwesst
will profit greatly if the greatest hydro electric plant west of
Niagara is constructed within 30 miles of Pendleton,
There are people who hold that the money for financing the
,1925 exposition should be raised by subscription rather than by.
taxation, but should the subscription plan be tried these same
people would probably argue for a taxation plan.

Problems of Distribution- of
Food to Greet Workers Much
as Belgium Relief in 1914.
by F. A. WRAT
(International Xews Service
LOXDOX, Sept. 27. The great bat
tle against the famine in Russia Is
Just beginning. But, as was the case
In Belgium in 1914, the preliminary
struggle involves not 'so much a ques
tion of supplies as of organization.
Comparing .what happened in the !
early days in Belgium to the present
situation in Russia may help to visu
alize the work lying before the Ameri
can Relief efforts. . In both Instances
the relief workers were faced with a
certain hostility; only In the present
case they are not faced with a ruth
leas army.
T saw the first American ship con
taining food enter the harbor r of
Amsterdam on December 4, 1914. Its
gallant commander had never left the
seas around Nova Scotia before. But
despite German submarines and
mines, although entirely ignorant of
tho difficulties of Atlantic transporta
tion, he had safely brought his pre
cious cargo into a neutral port.
An anxious crowd of us, the first
relief workers, awaited him. Through
out the Saturday nisht and during
the early hours of Sunday we scan
ned the sea for the ship's approach.
Despite the messages from London we
began to doubt. Then at last tho ves
sel hove in siirht and excitement grew
to fever height. We kne .v that at least
million refugees, who had fled un-
welcomed into Holland, were at the
point of starvation.
We knew that at least twice as many
Belgians, in their native villages ad
joining the Dutch frontier, were in a
like or worse predicament. .
IMorpld American Officer
It was 4 that afternoon when the
ship cast anchor. By 5 o'clock we
had three gangs of men working like
demons at triple wages to unload
her. By mid-day on Monday the
irreator part of her food was placed on
tho wharf.
Wo had chartered a special train.
After providing for the worst needs
Of tho refugees into Holland our chief
aim was to relieve the Belgians in the j
luurnrmQnu uistnet, who were re
ported to be literally on tfe verge of
starvation. Kverything they pos
sessed had been pillaged by the Invad
ing armies.
Captain Jackson, of the American
Army, was in charge of the train.
With a small section of helpers he
speed on his journey with all the steam
that a Dutch engine could make. It
was when he found the Belgian fron
tier, with German soldiers confront
ing him, that the real trouble began.
"Have you a permit to bring this
food in here?" asked the commandant
of the German troops.
"The permit of humanity," answered
Captain Jackson.
"If you have no official permit then
I shall seize the contents of the train,"
answered the commandant.
Captain Jackson Jumped on the en
gine and unfolded the Stars and
"Now seize them at your peril," was
his reply.
The commandant gave way. The
train's precious burden was unloaded.
Many people were saved from death
and the supply of American food Into
Belgium was initiated there and then.
There were no workers on the spot
sufficient in numbers to safeguard the
food at the moment. Those present
were only able to ensure tho proper
organization of its arrival. It would
take time for the requisite personnel
to reach Belslum from America in
those troubled times.
Hoover to the Rescue
Herbert Hoover saved the situation.
H appealed to the American Rhodes
."'Uo.ais at Oxford University to
abandon their vacations and devote
ther:ise!V'i to the cause. They came
as one man.
But as they would be the' first to
acknowledge, they were totally inex
perienced and faced with circum
stances about which they had never
dreamed. Some of them men like

There never has been any love lost
between the Dutch and Belgians. In
this case the Belgians are certainly
not welcome. All the food the Dutch
possessed they wanted for themselves.
They never intended" taking any,
