The Third Locks Project is under fire by supporters of a plan to build a new Sea Level Canal through Panama or Nicaragua. Both sides claim their plan is best for safeguarding vital military and commercial shipping from the Atlantic to the Pacific divisions of the hemisphere. t upon ■** Comm""1' he stude* and the- oP of ->"' part ist' state'* anks. wi"1 Df articul-1" mt the CP, heast As* tl"' s.o quite ,- nail on ■ .j te, which e/ <em pagf1 ■tober, I* \\7"7"iiat would happen if an \X/ enemy atomic attack com- » » pletely devastated our preset Panama Canal? A plan has been toggested in Congress to build an Entirely new waterway through **nama or Nicaragua, offsetting this Potential danger. Advocates of this fan believe- the strategic value of the F-w existing canal has materially de feased because- of the tremendous PVance in the destructive value of u'i uninuclear weapons. Immediate construction of the new j11'-' Level Canal has been suggested. .s supporters claim that a modern Sea f*Vel Canal would be- far less viilncr- '•<' tei damage from an enemy attack b Acrs Fouum News, October, I956 than the existing Panama ('anal, which was built in a series of lock levels, The principal advantages of the sea level design would be that the canal's structures and foundations would be far more difficult to destroy or damage seriously, and the results of such damage would be less grave than similar damage tei the old high- level lock canal. If the locks in the present canal were destroyed, vital naval traffic through the canal, including aircraft carriers, battleships, cruisers, troop transports, convoys, etc-., would has.- to be completely halted lor perhaps an entire year before the locks could be repaired and Gatun Lake refilled. In addition, the Sea Level Canal would be a safeguard against the total destruction of the present canal from an H-bomb attack. However, another and entirely different project has been proposed by a group of engineers who suggest improving the present Panama Canal with a Third Locks Project. The design and purpose of the Third Locks Project is to make it as difficult as possible for an enemy to inflict serious damage and greatly decrease the consequences of damage if it occurred. Unusual features are included in the design of the locks to make them more resistant to damage by bombing and to facilitate their repair after damage. The engineers admit that direct atomic attack Page 7
