Vol. 66-No. 1 THE SHERIDAN SUN, SHERIDAN, OREGON, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1964 Blood Unit Visits Set Next Year Two visits of the American Red Cross Bloodmobile to Sheridan have be scheduled in 1965, according to Jack Cole- man, executive secretary of the Yamhill County chapter. Coleman reported the blood unit will be in the city to collect blood donations on April 13 and October 5. The unit will set up at the Sheridan American Legion hall. Visits of the bloodmobile, Coleman reported, are spon- sored in the community by the American Legion auxiliary. Biggest support for the blood program in the Sheridan area comes from the JesuR Novi- tiate, the Red Cross official said.

SATURDAY, Dec. 12 Junior-Senior Prom. 6 Pages-10 Rosy Future Predicted ByReclamation Officer Some 200 Sheridan farmers and businessmen received as- surances Monday night that the Bureau of Reclamation would forward its report on the pro- posed Red Prairie development project to Washington in time for consideration by the 89th Congress. The comment came from Norman Moore, assistant dis- trict director from the Bureau of Reclamation's Boise office, who was guest speaker at the annual Farmer-Businessman banquet sponsored by the Sher- idan Chamber of Commerce. Moore said the development engineer's report on the pro- posed $28,000,000 project had been forwarded to the Boise of- fice. Data contained will be studied and a proposed report drawn up. This report will be sent out to all interested agen- cies and groups, he said. Com- ments and suggestions will be considered and the final report readied. The final report will be sent to Congress for action. 'Nee hope to have tbe report in the hopper in Washington in time for some action by tim 89th Congress," Moore said. The Red Prairie project would develop water and as- sociated resources in the area Just south of Sheridan. The plan calls for construction of Gorge Dam and reservoir on Mill Creek. The reservoir would impound some 53,03 acre feet of water and would supply irrigation needs of some 15,000 acres, Moore said. The project would be a multipur- pose one. It would include recreation fish and wildlife and flood control developments. The project would also provide some 1,200 acre feet of municipal water for the City of Sheridan. Farmers using irrigation wa- ter from the project will pay back some 23 per cent of the cost of the project over a 50 year period, Moore said. This would amount to a charge of approximately $10.50 per acre, per year for land under irriga- tion. Grants for flood control, fish and wildlife development and recreation would pay for a share of the total cost, he said. Moore spoke of other Wil- lamette Basin development pro- jects under study by the Bureau of Reclamation and painted a rosy picture of what this will mean to the future of the Basin. In addition to Red Prairie, the Bureau is currently work- ing on the Monmouth-Dallas project, Molalla project, Carl- ton project and the Tualatin project. Sheridan Scouts Gather 200 Bags For Godwill According to Scout officials, approximately 200 Goodwill bags were picked up by two Sheridan Boy Scout troops in the area Nov. 14. Lloyd Palmer, Hoyt Simon- son, Don Cooley, Ed Wilson and Robert Lauden furnished transportation for the pickup of bags and in the afternoon M r s. Marion Latham, Don Cooley and Lloyd Palmer took the boys to McMinnville to en- joy an afternoon of swimming. The 1964 Good Turn for Good- will was the biggest and best ever, according to Marion C. Smith, Goodwill industries executive director. Bagsful of clothing are still coming in to the Goodwill plant but a count now shows 168,703 were col- lected and turned over to Good- will. Fine weather that prevail- ed during Good Turn day belped the thousands of Boy Scouts, Cubs and Explorer Scouts set a new record for the 13 years of the Good Turn for Goodwill drives. It is estimated 25,000 Scouts and their little brother Cubs moved from house to house in nine Oregon and three Wash- ington counties to bring in the materials that help maintain Jobs and training for more than 500 handicapped and disadvant- aged nmn and women. At the end of the biggest of all GOod Turns for Goodwill up to this time, Smith had this statement: "We are most grateful to the thousands of householders who contributed clothing and small household items, and of course, we have a deep feeling of appreciation for the Scouts, members of Rotary of East Portland, fire department personnel and hund- reds of other volunteers who worked without stint, so that handicapped people might have a chance. Among students ploying big role in the produc- tion are (seated, left to right) Valarie Lyon, John Wakefield and Charlotte Gast. Standing (left to right) are Arvard Martin and Terry Reid. (Sun Photo 4t5) These ojects are all locat- ed in the northwest section of the Basin, :oore said, because farmers and businessmen in tim area have been tlm first to recognize the value of such de- ve lopme nt s. The Bureau of Reclamation, he continued, has realized the potential of the Wiliamette Ba- sin for mzny years. "We have looked on the Ba- sin as a sleeping giant," he said. "Tile Bureau's interest in the area dates back to 1916 when a survey was conducted to determine the development potens of the area. Further studie have been conducted contilly since that time. To date some 25 separate repprts have been filed since 1916," he sald. No moves were made toward development because of a lack of interest on the local level, Moore said. "This has a11 changed now. The Bureau is presently under considerable pressure to speed up develop- me nt projects." Moore said the development of Wlllamette Basin resources is inevitable. Present popula- tion in the area is around 1.4 million and indications are that it will increase rapidly. Census officials, expecting the popula- tion boons in California to spill over into Oregon, have predict- ed that the population will in- crease by 75 per cent by 1985, Moore said. The expansion will brin new indust:'Lc:: L:'.. th? I, he said. This, coupled wlth tile fertile land, favorable weather, and abundant water and land resources, will undoubtedly lead to a rapidly expanding economy, he said. Farmers in the area are fortunate, he continued. The change will come slowly enough that procedures will have an opportunity to gear for the changing conditions gradually. They will not have to plunge headlong into expensive alter- ations as was the case in Cal- ifornia. The changes will not come without growing pains, Moore said. Farmers will have to in- tensity their production meth- ods and practices, but they will have time to do it. Local basin development pro- jects and studies, he said, are part of a larger, more comp- rehensive study being conduct- ed under the Willamette Basin Task Force. This project is unique, and has never been tried before on such a scale. "A lot of eyes are focused on the Basin Study to see how successful it will be," he said. Moore concluded his remarks by urging local residents to get behind the Red Prairie project. "The Bureau of Reclamation can only conduct the studies and submit their reports to Congress," he said. "It is you people at the local level that Congress listens to when pro- posed projects are consider- ed,#' Special guests at Monday night's banquet included State Senator Arthur Ireland, Polk County State Representative Joe Rogers, Warren Jones, execu- tive secretary of the county ARA committee, and John Man- ley, Bureau of Reclamation de- velopment engineer from Sa- lem.
