Battle Against Time is on at Coulee Dam.  Construction of a cofferdam which must be completed before snow waters from the Canadian Rockies comes roaring down the river. Not alarmed yet but behind schedule on the cofferdam.

Alaskan Highway Project is Urged.  Representative Donald McDonald introduced a memorial in the state house requesting congress to cooperate with Canada on building a highway to Fairbanks Alaska.

The big snows of winter are creating a lot of damage as it melts.
