Water Commission report
called 'Anti-agriculture'
NEW ORLEANS-Watcr. Inc.,
look sharp issue with tentative
findings and recommendations of
the National Water Commission.
George McCleskev, Lubbock
attorney and spokesman for the
Water, inc., delegation at the
Commission's hearing on its
Review Draft of the Proposed
Report, branded the overall
report as "anti-agriculture,
particularly anti-irrigated
agriculture.’' and predicted that
if finally approved in its present
form and adopted by Congress it
would precipitate a food and liber
crisis from which the nation w ell
may not survive.
The National Water
Commission was created by
Congress five years ago and
directed to study the future needs
of the nation and to make
recommendations to the
President and to Congress. Its
proposed recommendations,
subjeettothe public hearing today
and tomorrow at New Orleans,
have triggered violent objections
from almost every quarter.
similar hearing have been
conductedatSpckanc. Wash., aad
Phoenix. Ariz., and a final
hearing is slated in Washington,
The Water, Inc., testimony
raised serious question about the
validity ofa computorstudy made
at the University of Iowa for the
Commissionandupon w hich many
of the recommendations are
based. McCleskev questioned
assumptions of the report,
‘specifically, that the nation’s
agriculturecanbe viewed as if it
were under one management such
that an optimum national cropping
oattern can be formed, that the
tastes of consumers will shift
from'beef to sov protein
substitutes, that annual
agricultural output will continue
to grow at the rate experienced in
recent years and thatagricultural
surpluses experienced in the
1950’sand 1960’s willcontinue.
McCleskev called on the
Commission not to file an
obviously faulty report, but
instead, to ask Congress lor
additional time to folly evaluate
the serious objections being
raised to the Savtoar Draft.
Accompanying McCteskey to
the hearing were Water, inc..
President Gaston Wells. Dumas;
John J. Kendrick, Brownfield, and
K. Bert Watson, Amarillo, baft
past presidents; and Duncan, act-
ing executive director, aadTom-
my Swann. stofT economist, both

A Valentine’s gift
and a twisted-arm
By Abigail Van *----
VrV ‘e—we —i>hl *• aim wsa. on A jCi
DEAR ABBY My huAband and I have bn^hrt^ the
sam*^ disagreement lor the teat ate years, and I hope yon
My husband believes that he should give me a gift on
three occasions; my birthday, Christinas, and Mother’s
I think he should add one more, St. Valentine’s Day,
since that is the day above ail others when one expresses
love. I wouldn’t expect an expensive gift. A single flower
would do.
My husband feels that a few unexpected gifts brought
home during the year mean more than those he is expected
to give just because of the date on the calendar. I agree,
but he does this very Infrequently.
Shouldn’t be give me a gift on St. Valentine’s Day just
because he knows it would make me happy, and I am hurt
when he doesn't? MRS. A.
DEAR MRS. A.: He should, but if he deesa’t, you
should accept his decision with grace aad maturity. A gift
which has been asked for loses ail of its loving sentiments.
And if you have been arguing over this far six years, your
husband is stubborn ami you are a nagger. Get off his hack
about it, aad one «f these days you will come up smelling
like a roue.
DEAR ABBY; I am 28 years old and have three chil-
dren. The baby at six weeks old developed a serious bron-
chial ailment and had to be hospitalized, so I got a room at
the hospital to be with him nights. I was gone a week.
In my abaence, my husband got very chummy with our
housekeeper, who is only 32 years old. He admitted that
this young woman had spent her nights in MY bed. My
husband thought I should take it calmly. As he explained it,
“I am hiring someone to take care of the children and do
your work for you, and I will also have a Uve-In mistress,
so you don’t have to worry about my tom catting around!”
Abby, I don’t want anyone to do my work for me, or
look after my children, and I don’t want my husband to
have a mistress.
After a vary ugly scene, he let this young woman go,
but now I discovered that he has rented an apartment for
her near here and he sees her anyway. He insists that he
lovarme but that he needs her, too.
What should I do? I love my children and don’t want to
be just another lonesome divorcee. BETWIXT
DEAR BETWIXT: Better to be a divorcee (whs said
