WORK FOR ENGINEERS
ProfeBBor Stout SpoakB on Irriga
tion as an Enginooring Prob
lem Many Opportun
ities for Skill
Professor Stout discussed iirigation
from the engineering standpoint at
JIo said lie desired to impress upon
his audience the fact that irrigation
makes many opportunities for skilled
engineers, for whether Irrigation is a
private, national, or corporation pro
ject the engineer is always In de
mand. It is a Tact that any man
who has to do with irrigation must
know more or less or engineering,
and the man who is selected as the
head of irrigation work in any stato
Is always a skilled cnaincer, not be
cause tho majority of questions to be
solved sire engineering questions, hut
because engineering frequently is in
volved in the legal aspects of the case
at hand. The speaker said that most
irrigation lawyers are prnctical en
gineers and all lawyers in Irrigated
regions learn something of emgneer
ing. Professor Stout contrasted sin ir
rigation ditch wltli a city aqueduct
and showed th.it the amount of
water required tor :i large city would
not bo sufficient ror a very laige
ditch.- He mentioned an Irrigation
problem of 'Nebrsisksi, namely, that

the Platte In tho dry season. It
takes an engineer to select tho site
N or a reservoir, even a small one, lor
he must consider the kind of soil,
siud the amount of water and evapora
tion. In building reservoirs and dig
ging canals along the Hatto It Is
not probable that mistakes of past
years will be repeated, such as con
structing reservoirs too shallow or
digging canals with an Insufficient
