met with a serious reverse in the
supreme court.
The nation's highest tribunal up-
ield the constitutionality of the law
under which the gigantic project
on the Colorado fiver is being built
-md refused to issue an injunction,
sought by the state, to restrain the
-.nterior department from proceed-
ing with the construction work.
At the same time, the court,
granted the state the right to come
before it again, if at some future
time it can show its rights are be-
ing impaired by the building of the
Jam. In this event, the court said,
Arizona's cause would be unpreju-
liced by' today's action.
The state succeeded in showing
ghat it may suffer injury from the
distribution of water to be im-
pounded at the dam, the court said.
