BUY WAR BONDS Statement of Public 0000Utility-Distri.c.t No. Ii Okanogan Count00 To the People of Okanogan County: - On June 20th, 1945" the Commissioners of he Public Utility District No. 1 of Oka- nogan Count)y adopted unanimously a resolution favoring the earliest possible con- struction of Foster Creek Dam. We believe that the construction of this project is of such vital importance to the people of Okanogan County tha we have taken this means of advising you of our action. The primary purpose of the Foster Creek project is generation of electric power. This project is the LOWEST COST power project on the Columbia River. The project will be located 10 miles upstream from Brewster. Approximately 500,000 k.w. of power will be available from this project continuously even during low stream flow years. This is equivalent to 635,G00 horsepower. The total installed generating capacity will be 1,024,000 kilowatts which is equivalent to 1,365,000 horsepower. We believe tha a large block of secondary power over and above the 500,000 kilowatt prime capacity of this project can be made available in the North Central Washington area for irrigation pumping. This power can be marketed at a very low cost per kilowatt-hour. The elevation of the Columbia River at this project will be incmased 172 ft. Water can be diverted from the lake above the project into southern Okanogan courtly and thousands of acres of land presently unproductive can be brought under cultivation by means of a combined gravity and supplemental pumping system of irigation. We believe that the Pacific Northwest, with its heavy power consuming war industries, is on the threshold of a tremendous post war industrial expansion. We need this expansion to enlarge local consumption of our agricul- tural production and replace ,the payrolls of our declining forest industries. One of our greatest resources is hydro-electric power. The Pacific Northwest is the only plaO In the United States where large blocks of lowest cost power can be made available to new industry. We urge that all civic organizations and as many individual residents of Okanogan county as possible attend the hearings on the Foster Creek project at the Brewster High Sc.hol at 10:00 A.M., July 2nd, 1945, and join with .the District in expressing our demands for earliest possible construction of this project Remember that the Foster Creek-project is the LOWEST COST power project that can be built on the Columbia River. Sincerely yours, W. S Shumway, President A. L. King, Secretary W. A. Hart, Commissioner Paul W. Hand, Manager BAR GRANGE NOTES Ivan L.

Mr. Lindquist, of the building committee, made a report on the new Grange hall. Work on the building is held up due to present restrictions on lumber. The lecture hour consisted of readings, group singing and songs by Mildred Pasley and Helen Lin- quist. A pot-luck supper is planned for the next regular meeting, July lth. It is to be held at the home of our master, Clarence Pasley, at 7:00 P.M. Members, relatives and friends are invi`ted.

Seaman, Manager G. G. Bucker, Secretary MORE FRUIT BETTER FRUIT by Actual Experience! Apple and pear growers the COUfl- try over have seen "orchard proof" of how STAFAST can step up the market value of their crops. It's a pretty plain calculation-simply a matter of having a lot more money fruit go into the pack. Why? Be- cause the preharvest application of STAFAST Hormone Spray cuts down premature drop and wind, fall losses, and holds the fi'uit on longer, so it will **color up" and "size up" better. In other vords, the crop is given a chance to get more of the help Mother Nature . has in store for it .... And another important STAFAST result is spreading out the picking time and practically fliminating "spo plckin"--a-bi . help k re. lieving the labor sh.sztag!
