It is of course predict Able in any election year that the opposition will Over lbs no Opportunity to put the congressman on the spot. That s politics. We re sure the con Gressman expects it. But before the matter is dismissed As pure Campaign Ballyhoo some unanswered questions should be put to rest. It remains an unanswered question As to just if any one is urging or. Bromwell to seek this project for District or whether it is a venture under taken on the Congress Man s own initiative. heard of Little enthusiasm for the project which has lain dormant for 25 years and of no group that has urged for re activation of the project through Federal funds. 5 if or. Bromwell has initiated the program strictly on his own we wonder about the advisability of keep ing Only his counsel in the deliberation of a project that carries an estimated tag of nine million dollars and affects a sizeable piece of Linn county real estate. We would have imagined that the congressman an announced advocate of better communication Between the various Levels of govern ment Wouldhave taken pains to keep All involved Levels of government informed in regard to this project regrettably this weeks column will be the last appearance of a citizen s View Point for the time being at least.

Brom Well will speak out fully on this matter because we agree with him that the Conser vation of water re productivity and pleasure Are of Paramount import Ance for the second District and indeed for the nation. We would hate to see a Worth while proposal torpedoed by politics but it remains for the _ 4-Rtll congressman to ten. The District just what he has in mind. Initiating enjoy the paper.

Now perhaps As legislation docs in Washington this particular Bill assuming it gets passed will probably not go Down in history As a major legislative act yet perhaps this is an instance where history will fail to emphasize the truly significant.
