Tho Western Reclamation Associa
tion has been organized as a result
of the Conference held November 21
and 22 at Salt Lake City. Repres
entatives from -thirteen of the reclam
ation states were present at ho Con
ference which was called for ho pur
poso of crystallizing sentiment In tho
Western 8tates Iri faVor of somo dc
'flnlto plan of furthering Federal Re
clamation. Tho Association decldod
to request ot Congress an appropria
tion of $2C0, 000,000 to replenish tho
reclamation fund, Provision was
made for an executive committee
composed of one member from each
Slato to carry out the recommenda
tions of the association. State Kn
ghicer Percy A. Cupper was elected
a h executive committeeman from Ore
gon. The first mooting of tho executive
committee wan held In Ball Lake City
following thu Conference, and It Is
proponed to hold the next mooting In
Washington D. C. soon after Uio con
vening of Congress.
It Is proposed to raise tho neces
sary funds for carrying on the cam
paign by voluntary subscription, Ore
gon's allotment Is $.1,000. Tho im
portance of this movement to Oregon
can hardly he ovoroHtlritntod. Any
substantial addition to thu U. 8. Re
clamation fund will not only permit
of additional construction work by
thu Reclamation Service, hut will
also greatly Htlmulate Irrigation un
der tho Irrigation district plan, which
Is proving so Hiicr-ossfiil'lu Oregon.
It Is holloved that tho movement will
rorelvo the aupport of every Irriga
