Garfield,..2.This region is a great national playground of matchless beauty and grandeur, the property of the people of the entire Nation, and should be so preserved for all time.Even from a mercenary point of view it would be of immense profit, as the years bring travel like that to the Alps.I have three times enjoyed camping in this region and am so qualified to speak from personal knowledge of the foreign facts.Finally: The scheme is not necessary- there is other water available.Yours truly,E.
