The letter which dealt with inclusion of the Shenandoah and Cacapon R!vers in the 'Wild Rivers Bill,' stated as follows: "The philosophy underlying this legislation is basically the same as that of the Wilderness Act of a few years previously-the pres- ervation of certain areas (in this case. rivers and adjacent valley land) in their present state, and protection of them by creating safeguards against their uncon- trolled exploitation by commer- cial or industrial interests. "We do not envision these val- leys becoming commercialized tourist developments, nor do we forsee any significant change in their present privately owned status This was firmly empha- sized in a report dated July 30, 1965, to me by Mr. Bern Wright, Director of our Division of Water Resources. I fully endorse this section of his report. "In this respect, I believe the private property owners of these valley lands have nothing to fear originated to meet a different sit- from either the state of the Fed- uation from that presented by eral Government. This was made the Shenandoah and Cacapon clear in a recent statement by Rivers. And when it comes out of the House of Delegates in for control'of only a narrow strip of land along each bank of a wild river segment. The width Of this strip will vary from stream to stream, but rather than fee acquisition, in most cases, we believe that it will be possible to acquire sufficient control through purchase of scenic and public use easements. This pro- cedure will permit private own- ers to retain title to their land in most instances. It will permit continuance of compatible uses such as grazing, crop product- ion and selective timber cutting. "Our positions, really, are ex- actly the same. Neither the own- ers nor the state would want to see a large industrial facility or our citizens and the scenic beauty of West Virginia," the Governor concluded. Bill Will Be Different In his remarks, Eaul.explain~d that the "Wild Rivers Bill" was gress acts upon it. Paul said the President had in- structed the Task Force which he heads to make the Potomac River Basin a model of scenic beauty and a center of recreation. And while the Potomac has a ter- rible reputation for being highly polluted, Paul declared that act- ually few people and Tew indust- ries are discharging waste into the river. Paul said the only solution to the problems of the Potomac Riv- er Basin is to have the states and Federal government take control of the river compact, and have a Baisn Commission to regulate a Basin Commission to regulate the area. Mrs. Glenn Hoffman, president of the League of Women Voters, presided for the forum discuss- ion, with Mr. C, F. Printz of Char- les Town, a member of the Vot- er's League's committee on water resources, first briefly reviewing the nature of the water prob- lems confronting this country to- day. Then Mr. Paul was presented to the group by Heidrich who asked that the discussion to fol- low the--Interim Report present. ation be directed first at the re- port itself then to be followed Relations Council whose purpose to assist in the improvement of by a discussion of the "Wild Riv- ers Bill." But as the discussion got underway it was clear from the outset that those opposing the "Wild Rivers Bill" felt the two were closely related and thus the debate developed mostly a- round the rivers bill.
