This letter, dated May 29, 1949, from United States (US) Representative Usher Burdick to Van Hook Farmers Union secretary Gerhard Stenerson concerns the pool level of Garrison Dam. Burdick writes that his office received the Van Hook Farmers Union resolution dated May 3 and he and US Representative William Lemke are doing all they can to get the pool level down to 1,830. Burdick adds that hearings have been completed on his bill to cancel seed and feed loans and that the commodity credit corporation storage program is tied up in US Congress.
