Not illustrated. 1910 edition. Excerpt: ...work are saving the orange growers of.California alone $1,000000 a year, and numberless similar examples might be cited. In its studies directly affecting the farming interest, the State Geological Survey has in nearly all cases cooperated with the Department of Agriculture. In this first season of work' we have cooperated with the Drainage Investigations Division, the Bureau of Soils, the Division of Public Roads and the Forest Service; but notice that in each case it has been with the Federal Department of Agriculture, not with the State department. Now, this has been so not because we do not want to cooperate with the State Department of Agriculture, or they with us, but simply because they do not have the money with which to cooperate. Therefore, our cooperation with that department has been confined to conferences and the giving of advice and counsel, all of which has been most freely given. If this State did as well by its Department of Agriculture as the United States does by its department, the State Department would be given $200,000 to $300,000 a year or more, depending on what basis you use in comparing this State with the United States. You realize what Col. Thompson has done in this State, practically without funds. Can you imagine what he could have done if he had had funds? We talk about investing in gold mines. I venture to say that very few gold mines in the world's history has ever returned as much on the investment as has been received from the appropriations given to the U. S.
