Billion. Half Proposed
WASHINGTON, Feb. ll (AP*.— Army engineers said today they have all the basic data needed for a comprehensive national flood control project, unofficially estimated to cost at $1,500,000,000 over a 10-year period.
Major General Edward M Markham. chief of engineers, said information assembled in the past nine years at a cost of $11,000,000 would enable him to submit such a program within a few days.
Among the projects recommended will be flood control reservoirs on big river tributaries, dikes to protect centers of population, and floodways. A third of the amount might go for local dikes to protect river cities.
A flow of 1.000,000 second-feet, or five times the normal volume of the St. Lawrence river, is to be carried down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico in flood times over the Eudora and Morganza floodways, already approved by congress.
The engineers said there is no way to control the lower Mississippi except by using these floodways and maintaining the existing system of levees.
All the 81 reservoir projects they surveyed in the Ohio river basin, they said, would not have kept the river from damaging Ohio valley cities this year without additional protection from dikes.
. Although General Markham denned to discuss his flood control plans in advance of his committee appearance, he was expected to follow recommendations which he and the Mississippi river commission submitted to congress a year ago.
A system of 161 reservoirs in the greater Mississippi valley was proposed at a cost of $1,125,807,000.
Congress last year approved about a third of the projects, but has not yet appropriated money to start work.
In the approved list were 14 reservoirs in the Ohio valley, nine of them above Pittsburgh, three on the Kanawha river s tributaries, and two on the Licking river which enters the Ohio opposite Cincinnati. Their cost was estimated at $85,350,-800.

Ramsay Defends Grants for Dam
DR. STANLEY HIGH
Organizer of the pro-Roosevelt Good Neighbor league. Dr. High was believed the target of a presidential statement announcing “the passing of so-called authoritative spokesmen.” The announcement followed magazine publication of Dr. High’s article predicting dismantling of the New Deal, an editor's note describing him as “one of the President’s closest advisers.”
WASHINGTON. Feb. ll (AP)—A charge that federal authorities discriminated in favor of the Tygarts valley dam in West Virginia in supplying government money to acquire a rights-of-wav was termed “simply ridiculous" bv Representative Robert L Ramsav, Democrat, of Follansbee, W. Va.
Representative Glenn Griswold, Democrat, of Peru. Ind . said in a recent statement discrimination had been shown for the Tygarts valley and Sardis reservoir in Mississippi.
“Tile Tygarts valley dam is one of a series contemplated by the government to prevent floods in the Ohio and Mississippi valleys by damming the water at its source and is of no value whatever to the Tygarts valley.”
He said condemnation suits to obtain land started and many were completed with judgments entered before passage of the Overton act, which included a mandatory provision that cost of easements and rights-of-way be borne by local communities.

I SCO VFH for yourself the tang of a whU-key-and-soda made with a truly dry whiskey like Paul Jones—a full bodied, hearty whiskey without even a trace of sweetness in its gloriously brisk flavor.
It is this quality of dryness in Paul Jones that has always appealed to men who like their whiskey—and their mixed drinks— crisp and clean-flavored.
And the preference of such men for Paul Jones is one of the reasons why it has been famous as “A Gentleman’s Whiskey” since 1865.
