Director of KUmath Irrigation
Klamath today welcomes the mem
bers of the congressional approprbv
tlon committee and officials of thai
reclamation service. It la seldom
that a community to afforded the op
portunity of presenting their claims
for recognition or preference as will
be afforded by the visit of these gen
tlemen. Upon the verdict of this, commute
will depend the appropriations neces
sary for the assistance cf local Irri
gation districts In reclaiming approx
imately 175,000 acres of land. Of
this over 103',000 acres are public,
and would bo available for settlement
by formor service men and women.
Water I available in existing reser
voirs for all of this land, with tbe ex
ception of about 40,000 acres. Tho
Isnds awaiting reclamation and Irri

When the government undertook;
tbe construction of tbe Klamath pro
ject, the land and reservoir sites la
private ownership were found to bo
quite aa obstacle to the success tat
prosecution of the work of construe
tlon. It waa found necessary to ex
pend Urge sums of money for reser
voirs with capacity for water-storago
in exceaa of the requirements' of the) '
landa now being served. Condition
at this time, however, are reverse
and the extension of Irrigation on tho
project by private enterprise Is ham
pered by the predominance of publlo
lands 'and government ownership at '
reservoirs, which reduces tho assets
of proposed districts and curtail tho
amount of money that can bo raised
by bond issue to auch an extent that
sufficient funds cannot be fonnd to
construct reservoirs and distributing;
