    Pelton Dam Brawl

    Pelton Dam Brawl
    A public hearing on the Pelton Dam controversy Friday brought crowds of irate witnesses and rooters that rivaled the oleo hearing throngs of the legislative session. The large hearing room and wide halls leading to it became sounding boards for sub human behavior. Police were called to keep order.

    Two bus loads of central Oregonians who arrived an hour before the time scheduled for the meeting were not all able to find seats. They came to rah for the Portland General Electric Company's proposal to build a dam on the Deschutes River.

    Proponents testified that dam would provide 100,000 kW of power. Opponents testified it would only be 42,000 kW and at best would be only a drop in the river to alleviate the power shortage. A proponents said the dam would build up a sportsman's paradise. Others said the dam would ruin fishing for sportsman and commercial fishermen would suffer the loss of spawning beds above the dam that would ruin the planned build up of 3,000,000 pounds of salmon a year.
