Deschutes Row
Stirred Again
Just when everybody thought
the legislature's fight over the
proposed Deschutes power dam
was all over, the whole battle
has to break out again.
The house voted overwhelm
ingly several weeks ago that the
dam should be built.
And Tuesday the senate fish
ing industries committee order
ed a hearing for next Tuesday
night on the whole dam question.
The senate measure calls for
an interim committee to study
the question on dams on streams
which are tributaries of the Co

It would bar construction of
dams on those tributaries until
the committee finished its work
two years from now.
Sen. Robert D. Holmes, Asto
ria, chairman of the committee,
introduced the measure and he
said it is directed at the Des
chutes dam.
Rep. J. F. Short, Redmond,
who says the dam is badly need
ed to relieve the power shortage,
told the committee that if the
resolution passes, there would be
no need to build the dam.
The dam, to cost $12,000,000
and to be built by three power
companies, would be finished in
two years.
Holmes said the house got a
chance to say whether it wants
the dam built, and so the senate
should get a similar opportunity.
However, even if the resolution
Navy Will Take

Only two men may be enlist
ed in the U. S. navy during the
month of April from the Salem

week from the main Oregon
station in Portland, which at
the same time announced the

state at 29. Seventeen of these
passes the senate, it still would
have to go through the house
which wants the dam.
