Walsh Scores Drainage Units
- I I
r or jeopardizing Lives
Portland, Ore., Apr. 8 (u.n Almost half of the 58 drainage and
drinking districts along the lower Columbia river have "failed to
cooperate" with the U. S. army engineers' flood control program
despite last year's disastrous floods and the possibility of high
water this spring, Col. O. E. Walsh charged today.
Walsh said this "dereliction
Jeopardiied hundreds of lives.
Walsh, Portland district engi
neer, said his office sent two
notices early this year to super
visors of the districts, pointing
out their obligations for proper
maintenance and operation to
make the districts as safe from
flooding as practicable.
"Half of the districts Tailed to
acknowledge the notices," Walsh
The army engineers' charges
followed closely after Col. Eck
ley S. Ellison, U. S. water bu
reau director in Portland, fore
cast that a 22 to 23 foot water
peak in the Columbia would hit
the Portland and Vancouver har
bors in June. This peak would
be six feet below last spring's
damaging flood crest which
crashed through a Columbia
slough dike and destroyed Van
port City on Memorial day, 1948.
None of the experts, however,
were willing to make a definite
forecast on the basis of current
weather developments. The
weather bureau said a spring
flood threat in the Columbia had
diminished. But the corps of
engineers hedged a prediction.
Col. Walsh said his letters to
the drainage and diking dis-
tric asked for a "statement of
work done in compliance with
obligations as required by the
federal laws authorizing the
various drainage projects."

Regal processions have moved down the avenues of time. Kings
have bowed their heads to receive the crown of the realm.
But never rode a king as this King rode . . . meek and sitting upon
an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
Nor ever wore a king the crown this King wore . . . surely He hath
borne our griefs and carried our sorrows.
On one day men lined His path with palm branches, and spread
their garments in the way. On another, they pierced His limbs with
nails, and cast lots for His robe.
But today men see Him through eyes He opened, and worship
Him with hearts He won.
Never lived a king as this King lives! Nor ever lived a people morf
blessed than those whose lives He rules!
