How They Do It In Oregon A rousing vote of thanks 'was tendered the minister on his departure and he was followed on the platform by .Tohn H. 1�wIb, state engineer of Oregon, who gave the meeting a splendid address on "Irrigation JPractlce in Oregon." * He told of the rocky road that Irrigation In that state had travelled, and of how they hav� Anally succeeded in placing the systezns on a firm and sound basis by proper oo-pperatlve legislation between the federal and state goveimmentB.
