"Big Ditch" vs. the H-Bomb (Continued from page 8) Ditch" in the early 190()'.s, urges im- provement of the present Panama locks Canal rather than a sea-level Atlantic to Pacific waterway. Another official of the Panama Canal Society has called the sea-level canal proposal "an unmitigated raid on the U. S. Treasury." In addition, Thatcher further urges the immediate necessity of a general review of the economic, political, engineering, ancl international aspects and problems related to the canal situation. Representative Daniel J. Flood of Pennsylvania, in an address to the society, declared, "Whatever may have been urged at the time of the decision as to the merits of the so-called sea- level design, it is a matter of history that the existing Panama Canal was constructed substantially according to the plan strongly recommended by Chief Engineer Stevens. (Stevens was appointed to originally build the canal by President Theodore Roosevelt. Later, he resigned and the canal was completed under the supervision of General George W. Goethals.) "Moreover, it has proved an eminent success with thc transit since 1914 of more than 249,980 vessels of various classes from all nations, commercial and military, xvith the toll rates measurably reflecting the costs of construction, maintenance, and operation." The Third Locks Project was first Page 64 proposed back in 1939, and was supposed to go into construction during the time when the U. S. entered World War II. However, the shortage of construction materials during the war caused the project to be completely stopped in its tracks ancl suspended for the duration. In 1943, as a result of the critical traffic problems resulting from war-time traffic, Capt. Miles P. Duval, captain of the port then and in charge of marine operations in the Pacific sector of the canal, developed a more comprehensive plan known as the Terminal Lake Third Locks Plan. It has been published as a technical thesis in leading engineering journals. Thc Third Locks Project proposed now is identical to Capt. Duval's original recommendations. Because ol its inherent logic and comparatively low cost, it has much wider support in Congress. At present, the Third Locks Project proposal is still being reviewed. Consulting engineers have been assigned to begin immediate full scale loading tests to determine its practicability under modern conditions. The nature of the test work involved will take three or four months before the engineers reach a final conclusion. It has been recommended that no further steps be taken to obtain approval ol any change in the existing canal before the investigations now in progress are finally completed. end Poll Question Winners For October, 1956 An award of $5.00 has been made to the following persons who submitted questions used in this month's poll: 1st question: DARYL P.
