parks and recreational centers and 13 per cent into waterworks and sewers he Although costing more to operate than the dole system the WPA has something to show for its expendi ture while direct relief would have nothing lefVhe said The complaint of extravagance isnt compatible with the criticism of an Iowa senator who said the poor people were being fed canned dog food the Washington official added A Natural Gift Clear Lake a natural gift im paired by thoughtless exploitation and neglect is being restored in part at least to its original said Mr Johnston We see in it to day a potential source of pleasure and benefit to you and your neigh bors throughout the years The destructive carp which re duced the game fish population has been removed this splendid lake wall and pier is being erected for your benefit and when this work is completed there will for the first time be a public entrance to the shores of the lake where rich and poor old and young may seek and find wholesome recreation Those of us who live in the east look to Iowa as a real pioneer in the field of conservation You lowans appreciate better than your sister states the value ofwildlife re sources You have been doing a splendid job of conservation and I see in this project sponsored by the authorities of your own state an other step forward in the long way toward the restoration of the streams and lakes and hunting grounds that thoughtless genera tions have so carelessly depleted Investment in Nature This restoration of natural re sources represents if you will an investment a deposit of capital in the National Bank of Nature that will return dividends that our chil dren and our childrens children may enjoy It will pay dividends in future years in healthy bodies wholesome minds and sound char acters In your great state which I am informed possesses such a high per centage of the grade A land in the United States there are more than unemployed people who are finding work on WPA projects Clear Lake represents one of the projects which were selected to be put into operation in Iowa Throughout your state are the remaining projects on which your unemployed fellow citizens are earning a living and adding to the wealth of your state in terms of a better environment for you and your children and grandchildren He Answers Critic We have all heard the criticism that has been heaped upon WPA The charges made consist of allega tions of waste extravagance and useless expenditures of federal mon eys And I seem to recall a murmer to the effect that WPA is a political racket
