a dam at Boulder canyon, in the Colo
rado river and an all-American canal
connecting that project with lands in
the Imperial valley, California, and
in 'Arizona for irrigation purposes,
will be introduced in the house early

Representative Swing announced
today that conferences with delega

tentative agreement on the bill which
embodies the recommendations of
Director Davis of the reclamation
Mr. Swing said it was probable
that $50,000,000, originally, proposed
for erection of the dam, would be re

the canal, previously estimated at
$30,000,000, would finally be fixed at
$25,000,000. ' ' . .. : -
He said a provision also would be
included to give former service men
preferential claims on the unsettled
lands which will be irrigated by the
canal.'- . ' . .
