We give s h Green Stamos Florence South Carolina smaller dams getting vote by John Alden Knight for quite Snir few the Bifi dam program of the u. S. Army Kny incurs and the Bureau of reclamation has been under rather close scrutiny by the conservationists of the country. This automatically includes the outdoor writers o which i Arn one. To refresh your memory this program originally was called the pick Sloan plan. It railed for the construction of flood control dams in the main watersheds of our nation. The estimated outstandingly Low when submitted by either of these two departments was s54.000.000.000. That my friends is a lot of dollars particularly when we consider that some of them Are to come out of your pocket and mine. Organizations such As the Amer ican watershed Council have Dur ing recent years shown rather clearly that sound flood control is not effected by the erection of Large Darns in the lower valleys of our big Rivers. Proper flood control begins at the source up in the headwaters where excess water can be stored for use in time of need. Happily the Public gradually is coming to regard the Hig dam pro Gram with a somewhat jaundiced Eye. After All. Setting up a National water Bill of 54 billion Bucks is something which no same person should favor if u is not vitally Nec Essary you know the old adage about giving a calf enough Back in 1951. When Kansas City was ravaged by floods. General pick nne of the authors of the pick Sloan plan and then head of the u. S. Army Engineer corps journeyed to Kansas City and there he made a speech to the stricken inhabitants of that flood Ridden country. He told them that had the dams which were then in Blue print stage Only been installed in Accord with the pick Sloan plan. Floods could not have happened. He blamed this failure on the parsimonious appropriations of con Gress. Then he boarded a train and returned to Washington. Subsequently some of the boys got together and went Over the weather re ports and the contour i maps. They came up with the astonishing worked out from authentic data the dams then under contemplation would have had not the slightest effect upon the flood Levels in the stricken areas. John q. Public pricked up his cars and took a closer look at the pick Sloan plan. One of the dams to to built in Kansas was and unfortunately still is. The Tuttle Creek dam. Planned for erection in the Blue River Valley of Kansas it will if completed Cost Many millions of to be exact. The people of Kansas do not want this dam. Accordingly the Blue River Val Ley association has been formed its purpose being to fight the construction of the Tuttle Crock dam. Through the obvious expedient of employing the service of Independent engineering companies this association has shown that the Tuttle Crook dam would be an unwise expenditure. Not Only would it exercise do ious flood control also its wars would inundate land that is Worth far More than any possible damage which May occur through occasional floods. In 1952, congressman Howard s. Miller then a political unknown Defeated a four time Republican Winner for the congressional seat a the first District of Kansas. Miller s opponent was in favor of dig . Miller is an advocate of flood prevention not through sound watershed management. He is no Faith in the big dam idea id his Campaign was run on that Oasis. Accumulated evidence has piled up to such an extent that it can no longer be denied the Tuttle Creek dam is of questionable Val surely insufficient to justify the expenditure of the Money this dam would Cost. The Kansas state legislature has memorialized Congress asking them to Stop construction until debatable issues Are settled once and for nil time. Meanwhile congressman Miller has not been Idle. In his Bill a. R. 2730. He seeks to eliminate All funds for the Tuttle Creek dam from the 1953-54 Eisenhower Bud get prospectus. Not Only would this Bill halt preliminary construction it would serve to have the project completely de authorized. To my Way of thinking this is decidedly Good news. I do not like big dams never have liked them. Impoundment of water in the lower valleys of our watersheds Al ways has seemed to me like lock ing the barn door after the horse has born stolen. A great Many of the big dams now under contemplation will encroach upon the territory now included in our National Parks. This of itself is wrong. These surely should be kept inviolate to be passed along unspoiled to future generations. Economically the big dams Al most always Are unsound. In most capes existing revenues from the lands which would be flooded More than offset any actual returns from dam construction. Last but by no Means least there is the matter of recreational value. A flowing Stream furnishes recreation not to be compared with that supplied by a Lake. Some years to be sex wrote a Book called of Bill. This is a collection of Short stories of the outdoors. If you Are interested no doubt you can find it at your Public Library. On the last Page of "01" i refer to a remark made by my father a great Many years ago. Even then he was deploring the manner in which our outdoors was being misused and destroyed. To conclusion he said any half baked Engineer can build a Lake. It takes the almighty to make a shop 9am to 9pm Friday Hercules work clothes inventory i gun safety study gaining popularity by Charley Gillham several of the More progressive state fish and game departments have been making a study of gun safety. Youth groups have been trained in the handling of firearms and their later Progress in the Field has been noted. The kids just Don t cause much trouble. Recently i saw a letter from Sweden in one of our National out door magazines. It stated that Ina country of inhabitants. Are Active riflemen. Many of them Are Between the Ages of fourteen and eighteen. Every school has its own Rifle i club. The students compete with the teachers. There have been no accidents due to students handling their rifles carelessly. This has been reflected in the Field. I have Long been an advocate of Houth training in the use of fire migratory Bird seasons close Columbia Jan. Open season on All migratory Birds in South geese doves snipe and saturday it was pointed out by director a. A. Rich ird Json of the wildlife resources department. The ducks As usual did not i Rome Down in Large numbers until i the latter part of the season but there arc now some heavy concentrations along the East. Inland shooting was considerably by Ziack of water in the swamps. The Dove population was the highest in several years and com t Prat Ivory Good shooting was re ported during both halves of the split season. Arms. In Alaska my kids shot on a school Rifle team and by Tele graph or letter they compete d with other schools. Girls were As proficient As the boys and one did not need be a muscle Man to make the team. One year a girl was the Champion. Some states have recognized the importance of youth training. In California a Bill sponsored by the associated sportsmen was passed. It provides for training of Young Hunters seeking their first Hunting License. New York state has had a similar Law for several years. Maine Hac a Bill introduced making it Mada tory that students be taught the Safe use of firearms. It required two hours instruction annually and this to include nomenclature Safe handling and firing of not less than 50 shots from a Rifle at targets. Why Rifle training has been passed up in the High schools in the United states is a mystery to me. Most colleges have teams but the High school student have in most part been neglected in this most necessary training. Deer had less screw Worms Columbia.
