Although the secretary of the In terior believes that it will be a wise and beneficent thing to reclaim the swamp lands of Klamath Lake and that region, he does not see how the reclamation service can undertake that work without -legislative auth ority being specifically given and un til funds for such a project are in hand. This expression of opinion was ob tained from Secretary Lane by Sena tor McNary and was forwarded by him to J. H. Carnahan, president of Klamath Post No. 8 of the American Legion. Carnahan has been urging that the swamp lands should be op ened up tor settlement to the sol diers and sailors ot the late war, Ir respective ot whether they are re claimed or not, contending that the settlers can themselves unite and drain the land tor agricultural de velopment. To this A. P. Davis, director of the United States reclamation serv ice, replied that the plan is not feas ible as It takes years and a good deal ot capital to dike the lands and it is not likely that soldier and sailor settlers would be In a financial posi tion to undertake that work. At pre sent he says the lands are suitable only tor grazing and ror that pur pose large undivided tracts are ne cessary. MAIN LIXE CLEARED.

NAT L1TN op STATE C. 0. C. TN I M Land Settlement Is Vital Feature of Next Year's Development Cam paign, Says Secretary In' His JPIrsc Annual Report to Directors Land settlement Is the major ac tivity to which the Oregon state chamber of commerce should devoto its energies during the coming year, says George Quayle, general secre tary In his first annual report, which, will be presented to the organization at their meeting In Portland, Decem ber 29, 30, 31. This, he says,, was the main prob lem on which the directors centered their work during the last year, but, while the idea has been kept in the foreground and greatest activities have been along the lines of secur ing settlers for farm lands, many other large questions ot importance have come before the organization. A detlnlte program for 1920 Is suggested In the report along the fol lowing general lines: Roosevelt Highway Naval Baser Right now more than at any time in the past immediate action of the citizens of Oregon is urged in securing appropriation trom Con gress toward construction ot the Roosevelt Highway to protect our coast line, and the early establish ment ot the naval base at the mouth ot the Columbia River. Even though the present attitude ot Mexico may not bring about serious trouble Im mediately, torces are at work that will ultimately require this highway nnd base to Insure our safety. National Forest Reads: Secure cooperation of eKort rrom the -Western states In an appeal to Congress tor an appropriation ot say, one hun dred million dollars ror building roads through National Forests, the amount to extend over a term ot ten years. Reclamation Fund: Persistent effort should be made to secure trom the Federal Government at least as much money as has been paid into the Federal Government by the State or Oregon under the Re clamation Act and has been diverted trom this state to other states. The total ot this rund now being $6,500, 000. Advocate that we get solidly back of the movement for a substantial recommendation for reclamation and urge all possible effort in behalf of the Soldier's Land Settlement bill before Congress. Railreads: Special effort should be put forth in an endeavor to have the Natron cut-otf completed, which will connect the country of Klamath and Lake Counties with Willamette Valley. Give such assistance as Is possible toward the early construction ot the Strahorn System ot railroads thru Central and Eastern Oregon. The construction of the Natron cut-off and the Strahorn roads will be the means of connecting Eastern and Western Oregon; undertakings well worthy or the best efforts of the State Chamber. State Guarantee: Suggest a bill be presented to the Legislature in which tho State of Oregon will guar antee principal and interest for a given time on bonds issued under proper restriction for irrigation and drainage projects and reclamation of cut-over or logged-off land in the State. Stnto Bonding Measure: Recom mend Stnto Chamber go on record ns favoring leglslntion authorizing the Stnto to issue bonds for roads In an amount not to exceed 4 per cent instead of 2 per cent limitation under the present law. Advertising: Suggest an oxton sivo advertising campaign for estab lishment of settlors on land In Ore gon, An appeal to the tourists should bo made through a personal repre sentative to be sent through the Eas tern nnd Middle Western stntos in order to get In personal touch with tho tourists coming West provid ing funds are obtainable.
