SECRETARY LANE HAS BIG IDEA
FOR U. S. AID TO THE SOUTHWEST
WITH secretary of the isterior Lane back of a project
which he has himself proposed for bringing under
cultivation part or all of 600000 acres of untilled
land in the west the land is likely to be cultivated. For
the secretary of the interior is a iorcefnl man who generally
accomplishes what he sets out to do and if there is any
way of getting fanners to till that uncultivated land he
will find tie way.
Mr. Lane has made a start by asking congress for an
appropriation of $1900000 for the purchase of seeds and
aqsipmcnt and to make ether arrangements for bringing
the lend under cultivation.
This 6Q3.COO acres of land comprises untitled tracts in
j-overnuient reclamation projects or privately owned or In-
dian lands susceptible of irrigation. Mcst of it according
- o the bindings of a survey made by the department of the
interior can be irrigated from government dam or from
atreacs or by pumping. About 100000 acres are in recla-
mation projects and are entitled to receive water next
spring. About 500000 are privately owned or homestead
lands witiin reclamation projects and susceptible of irriga-
tion. Much of this land is included in the Roosevelt and
Yuma pro ects in Arizona and in the Elephant Butte project.
In addition there are large tracts of arable land in the
Indian reservations in Arizona which might be cultivated
with government linancial assistance either by whites or
Indians. Most of this land lies in the Papago reservation
of southern Arizona and is strictly a dry farming proposi-
tion. Ike Indians could be persuaded to cultivate the land
under direction of white superintendents for the Indians
know their land and their climatic conditions and are past
masters a: dry farming. If whites can be induced to culti-
vate all the irrigable land outside the reservations it will
bs enough for them without going inside the reservations.
Secretary Lane undoubtedly has estimated carefully
ust what financial help will be needed from the govern-
ment and has made his request for a congressional appro-
priation to correspond. However an appropriation aver-
aging little more than $3 an acre is hardly adequate unless
the secretary is going on the assumption that every farmer
undertaking to cultivate new land should be able to put in
at least as rancS cash as the government in addition to his
own laior. If there are enough farmers ef that kind who
are willing to take up new farming projects well and good.
It is doubtful. It is safe to say-the cost of bringing new
land under cultivation would be about $25 an acre this in-
cluding clearing levelling fencing ditching and plowing
the land for the first crop. A large part of that sum would
be charged off to labor cost and the labor would be per-
formed by the farmer himself if he were not to undertake
to clear and plant a tract larger than he could prepare by
his own elicits.
Even so the cost of livestock tools a house and well I
would make a cost of at least $10 an acre to say nothing
of seed. j
However it may be the secretary ef the interior hardly j
anticipates that more than one-third of the 600000 acres I
will be brought under cultivation next year. Then if the
(BY H. S. H.)
appropriation were granted the government could loan
about 9 an acre to the farmers and that would be suffi-
cient if the farmers possessed any means at alL
The secretary of the interior has a big idea and one
which the southwest would like very much to see succeed.
It would be a great thing if the government were to un-
dertake to locate farmers on untitled land susceptible of ir-
rigation and would finance their first year. It would be the
greatest upbuilding effort we could expect to see and worth
years of careful campaigning by chambers of commerce or
other public or privote organizations trying to get the land
settled up and producing crops.
Rumania Coerced Into Armistice
Whatever one may think of Russia's rabid leaders for
proposing an armistice with Germany preparatory to ne-
gotiating for .peace indignation should not be directed
toward Rumania for consenting to an armistice. Rumania
can't help herself.
The only part of Rumania left unconquercd is the
northern extension a sort of projection between Austria-
Hungary and Russia. In that narrow neck of territory is
what remains of the Rumanian army defending' the north-
ern border and the interior against the Austro-Germans.
On the northern frontier Russian troops are mingled with
the Rumanians. In Russia's desire to effect an armistice
along the whole line from the Baltic to the Black sea
Rumania has been coerced into acceptance. Should Rumania
refuse the Russian troops defending Rumania would drop
out. Supplies would be cut off from Russia and the little
kingdom would be left completely at the mercy of the
enemy. Not only would military disaster follow but the
cviilian population would starve without food from Russia.
It is said that Russia called these matters to Rumania's
attention and further hinted that if Rumania proved ob-
durate Russian troops would strike Rumania from the rear.
There is every reason to believe Rumania would have
stayed in action if conditions had remained such as to make
it possible. King Charles of Rumania only last week de-
clared his unwavering allegiance to the entente alliance
and his desire to prosecute the war to its conclusion. Per-
haps now he feels it to be the part of discretion to fall in
with the armistice arrangement trusting that the parley-
ing of the Russians and Germans and Austrians will finally
come to nothing and that the war on the. east front will
inevitably be renewed.
