Don Mathews, Chamber of Commerce manager, a.sked the GBRA board members whether concerted action on the part of members of the Guadalupe River Watershed As.sociation might have some elTect on Congress in this election year in expediting construction of the Canyon Dam. Cape said that a certain political problem in connection with obtaining an appropriation fi)r the dam does exist, but that Texas senators in Congress have been diligent in their support of the project thus far. Support from other senators Congressmen is necessary for pai^sage of the appropriation bill, and pre.ssure to get the project into the budget, which is usually closed in October and presented by the President in January, is of pi'ime importance. He explained thiit although the dam was authorized by Congress upon reports of the Corps of Engineers a number of years ago, no appropriation for its construction has ever been made, largely because of the interference of World War II and the Koretm war. Further studies on the dam are necessary to determine actual costs, he said. Present plains call for a $40,000,000 structure which would impound 1,144,800 acre-feet of water, or approximately 40 per cent nriore than is impounded by Bllchanan Dam on tht Colorado. He pointed out that the GBRA is primarily interested in owning ail conservation water in the Guadalupe Rive watershed. It is the feeling of the governor and all state agencies involved that control and ov nership (if all natural resour( 's should I'emain in the hands of the state, with the federal government having Cinly two legitimate controls on the .state's water one, to contrM flood waters, and two, to control navigation on navigable streams. The Guadalupe is classed as a navigable stream. Cape said that he believed the present diíTerences of opinion will be ironed out as studies progress, and that the dam will finally be built. Construction of auxiliary GBRA dams, which would produce power with water obtained from the Canyon Dam, must await completion of plans for the larger structure, he pointed out, because of engineering problems which are dependent upon size and placement of the Canyon Dam,ANNUAL BAZAARin benefit of 0.

Arno Moeller, .son of Mr. and Mrs. William Braker, is expected to arrive home from duty in England this week. Mrs. Elsie Simon is leavihg this week for Winfield, Kan., where she will enter the Snyder-Jones Clinic for a check-up. Mayor Julius Schwandt .said that he favored a program of placing smaller diversion dams which would lead water into natural openings into underground streams, rather than attempting to impound large bodies of water on the surface. He said that information he had received indicated that such a program would do more to maintain the flow of springs than any other method of water conservation. Rochette Coreth» prominent rancher, asked about the efficacy of erecting small dams on tributary creeks as a water conservation measure. Construction of such small dams fits right in with the GBRA program of larger dams, R. H. Vahrenkamp, conservation director of the board from Seguin, and W. M. Burnett, board member from Wimber-ley, said. The two programs complement each other, hut neither is a substitute for the other, Vahrenkamp added. • The GBRA has no control over the acti(m of the Lower Colorado River Authority in taking such large quantities of water from the Comal River at the Comal Power Plant that the Landa Park lake level is b<'ing lowered, Cape said. The plant wa.s leased to the LCRA l)y the GBRA, and the latter agency exirrcises no control over of)e" ration of the plant. Mayor Schwandt reported that last Wednesday the lake level was lowered by two feet, and the power plant had to shut di)wn ono of its turbines because of a lack of sufficient water. Present at the meeting were Mathews, Schwandt, Coreth, Willard Rush, Ed. Badouh, Alton Luckett, and Mark Fuchs, representing the local delegation; and GBRA board members, C. F.
