Title An Essay on the Neverlasting Hills
Description dividers, the ditches that served them were only channeled between banks about two feet high. Now, those channels have been cut from 7 to 15 feet deep and became as much as a hundred feet or more across, where previously they had been only the width of a dredge operator's reach. In addition to this, the rampaging waters cut new meandering channels and took out a bridge just above the upper cement divider, leaving the ditches the divider served about ten feet above that divider. Only the middle divider of the three is intact, saved only by the wider spread of floodwaters over flatter land. Approximately 1,000 acres of farmland at Indianola are unirrigated this year. It may also be briefly noted that severe erosion by floodwaters has closed Maple Canyon, deepened gullies, and seriously paved farmlands around New Jerusalem and Freedom with deep layers of mud. -57-
