The Power Politics of Hells Canyon

Description: This study examines the controversy regarding Hells Canyon on the Snake River, North America's deepest gorge. Throughout the 1950s, federal and private electric power proponents wrangled over who would harness the canyon's potential for generating hydroelectricity. After a decade of debate, the privately-owned Idaho Power Company won the right to build three small dams in the canyon versus one large public power structure. The thesis concludes that private development of Hells Canyon led to incomplete resource development. Further, support of private development led to extensive Republican electoral losses in the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s.

Dry-Farming: Methods and Practices in Wheat Growing in the Columbia and Snake River Basins

Description: "This bulletin deals with the dry-farming methods practiced on grain farms in the Pacific Northwest, where the rainfall is less than 15 to 18 inches annually, but it also contains advice helpful to all farmers of that region who practice summer fallowing. Its purpose is to show the possibility of increasing crop yields in the dry-farming areas by using improved methods and to discuss the practices which have been found most advantageous. ...The highest yields have been secured by plowing in the early spring and giving enough cultivation after plowing to keep the weeds well under control. The purposes of summer fallowing and details of the methods by which it is accomplished are given, and the application of these methods to the cultivation of "blow" soils and "nonblow" soils. Methods are suggested for preventing and stopping the blowing of soils. Attention is given to the saving of man labor by the use of large power units, methods of seeding winter and spring wheat are outlined, and suggestions are made for maintaining the organic matter in the soil." -- p. ii

The Alfalfa Weevil and Methods of Controlling It

Description: "The alfalfa weevil destroys a great deal of alfalfa in northern Utah and southern Idaho. It also inhabits southwestern Wyoming and is spreading slowly to new territory in all directions. It may in time infest most of the United States. The adult, a small brown snout-beetle, and the larva, a green, worm-like creature, usually escape notice during the first two or three years that they are present in a locality, but as soon as they become numerous enough to do harm they are readily found, and their effect upon the appearance of the fields is conspicuous. Vigorous treatment is then necessary to prevent partial or total destruction of the first and second crops. The purpose of this bulletin is to show how serious the attack is to the farmer, how much territory it embraces and how it spreads, and to describe the insect, its work, and the methods which are effective in dealing with it." -- title page
