Delta Will Open League Play Friday Against Eagles Delta opens the 1952-53 basketball basket-ball season Friday, when the Millard Mill-ard Eagles come over for the first league game of the season. Coach Christensen is getting his team in shape for Fridays game with the Eagles, and he says that he needs certain boys to fill certain positions, and the boys that come up with them will be the ones that do the playing. Leo Prestwich is the kind of boy that is willing and is trying to do such things. Leo has come a long way this year and he is the kind of fellow that any coach would be proud to have on his team. Beaver, as it looks at the present pre-sent time, will probably be the top team in this division. But in basketball everyone has different ideas, so only time will tell.

Discuss Heed To Line Canals To Save Leaks A lot of things that go down the drain cross the drain board first Bert Johnson and Cutler Hen-rie Hen-rie who are officers of the local Drainage District that the "drain board has been crossed." Cutler said, "Half the water the drain carry comes from leaky can- ale ArA Via rVrotM TVctrit Vine I offered to pay half the cost of lining the canals for irrigation com panies, if they would do it." Do you remember the parades when we still had cavalry? After the fine looking troopers rode by on their shiny horses, a team of mules pulled a wagon loaded with some bales of hay and sacks of oats, labled with a sign "WE FEED THE HORSES." After that another wagon equiped with stable brooms and scoop shovels came along with a big sign, "WE DON'T FEED THE HORSES." The first wagon was always the most popular. That is the way with the irrigation companies. They bring the water, which makes the farms possible in the first place, so they will always be popular. pop-ular. That is what Bert Johnson referred re-ferred to when he said. "It seems like people didn't know there was anything the matter with crops that more water won't cure, even J when the high water table is killing kill-ing all the roots." i Clifford MeriiL who will be head man in the SCS office when Boyd Murray goes to Arizona, warns that each acre foot of our irrigation water has from 3 to 5 tons of salt in it. And that is the same water that leaks out of the canals. can-als. Leslie Portor says, "Ditch lining will come eventually, but the land will not produce enough to pay for it yet."
