HINN'OTT lKH FOR MONK RKOLA'
Congressman N. J. Stimuli of Ore
gon, member of the I'uhlic Lands, Ir
i if.M i inn ami Water Power Comtull
tees in a speech on the floor of the
House sharply touched up the edmlu
tstratlon for Us failure to Increase
the reclamation Fund In these dajra
when the largest possllile food pro
duction wan railed for on every hand.
He lamented the fact that the yearly
recommendations of Secretary Lane,
"with hla broad vision and knowledge
of the West" were pigeonholed by
Congress anil his advice seemingly
ignored. SIiiiioU'h remarks were
made during the discussion by the
House of the lieclumutlon Sections of
the Sundry Civil Hill. He deplored
the circumstances (bat the Appropri
ations Committee had only recom
mended the expenditure Of some
"10.0(H) this year and that this
was confined to existing projects,
