Sentiment in favor of the Wallula
cut-off is growing, notwithstanding
vigorous opposition which hus boon
waged by Pendleton since the pro
ject was first proposed. The cut-off
is intended to shorten the distance
between Portland and Pasco about
91 miles and between Portland and
Walla Walla about 31 miles.
The cut-off would be a road 26
miles in length from the town of
Umatilla, on the Columbia river
highway, to Wallula, Wash. About
31 miles are on the Oregon side.
Walla Walla road enthusiasts agreed
to pave from that town to Wallula
if Oregon will do its own share.
As this cut-off would be an inter
state road, the federal road bureau
is 8trongely in favor of the entei
prise, and government money would,
undoubtedly, be available for co
operation. Members of the Oregon
state highway commission have never
condemned nor opposed the cut-off,
but have held that some day the cut
off must be built, as it is logical.
There is su.n a demand for improv
ing roads already on the Oregon
road map that the commission has
hesitated to place the cut-off on the
S. Benson, one of the original
members of the Oregon highway
commission, and for three years
chairman of that body, is an advocate
of the cut-off as an economic and
"The Wallula-Umatllla cut-off has
always impressed me as one of the
most important projects to which
the state can be committed," states
"During my Incumbency as a
member of the state highway com
mission my attention was directed
to this particular project and its im
portance was so obvious that 1 sought
to have It Included in the state high
way system. The United States of
fice of public roads not only favored
the proposition, but Insisted that
there was no more Important road
project In the state and was both
eager and willing to co-operate with
the state in the cost of its construc
tion. Every visitor from northeastern
Washington and points east of the
proposed cut-off has deprecated the
necessity of making the long, round
about, circuitous journey to reach
the Columbia river highway. Not
only is the present route 31 miles
longer, but the road rises to an ele
vation of 2100 feet, while a recon
naissance of the proposed route
shows an elevation of but 900 feet,
with no difficulties of any kind to
hinder the construction of this very
"The North bank of the Columbia
river presents such difficulties that
it is doubtful even If a highway Is
built on that side of the river it will
be used to any great extent, as the
highway in Oregon on the south side
is comparatively level, with no ex
cessive grades and easy of negotia
tion. "During the past summer I have
resided at the Columbia Gorge hotel
at Hood River, and, without excep
tion, every traveler coming from
northeastern Washington and from
points in eastern Oregon beyond the
contemplated cut-off were firm and
enthusiastic advocates of the pro
ject. "The charge that the proposed
cut-off is merely a scenic proposition
is without foundation as the country
through which the road will pass Is
anything but attractive. It Is pri
marily an economic business propo
sition and will bring greater returns
on the Investment than any similar
enterprise in the state. for some
unexplained real on the people of
Pendleton are opposed to this Im
provement, probably thinking that it
will 'divert travel. Pendleton is so
important a trade centtr, so vital to
the section in which it is located that
nothing can possibly divert business
or travel from this thriving city. Th. -
immense country tributary to Pen-
dl.jton with its growing population
will always make it their point Of
dfstinaUon, hence the canf tructlor
of the Wallula cut-off will not affect
Pendleton in any manner,
"Some time since a Seattle paper
devoted considerable space to the
proposition that Seattle was losing
millions of dollars every year by the
fact that no adequate facilities were
provided for vehicular traffic lo reach
that city from points beyond the
Cascade range, and that the entire
traffic was being diverted to the
Columbia river highway by way ol
Portland. There is no question bul
(hat the statement is correct, as the
natural barrier that nature has plac
ed between eastern and western
Washington is impossible to over
come and for a long period in winter
the highway over the mountains can
not be traveled.
"The Columbia river highway is
an all-season road, water grade, pre
sents no difficulties for travel and i
the artery that connects Western
Oregon with every point east. The
construction of the Wallula cut-off
means opening up an immense ter
ritory which is now tributary to
Portland. The saving in mileage to
I lie people of Pasco, Yakima, Bur-
bank and the great Wenatchee and
adjoining country if this cut-off wen
constructed would he 90 miles It
would enable then people to make
a week-end trip to the Oregon beach
es and to shop in Portland.
"The CUflOUB situation in this par
ticulnr project Is that the Washing
ton state highway 00 ttt mission Is Op
posing the building of any connection
with the proposed en I off, giving a
a reason that it wil redound to I hi
prosperity of Oregon and it is op
posed by certain Heel ions in Oregon
for the reason that it will furnish
means of transit to people outsidi
the state. The federal officials, how
ever, are Interested in the project be
cause it is a road of interstate im
"Looking at a road map of Oregon
thf conclusion wil be readied that
funds are being spent continually
upon roads of only local Importance
and recently information has been
given out thai an effort is being
made in Washington to divert over
50 per cent of the Oregon forest road
fund to the construction of a project
that is absolutely inconsequential
and of no importance to the state. As
an economic proposition, a business
project, an important link in the
state highway system, the Wallula
cut-off is beyond dou,bt the best en
terprise to which the state can be
