The United States already has pur­chased exclusive canal rights in Nic­aragua for $ 3,000,000, planning to supplement the present Panama Can­al. The canal, estimated by Army en­gineers to cost $ 7,22,000.00, would be constructed as a self- liquidating pub­lic works project. The Nicaraguan Canal would run from Greytown on the Carribean Sea to Brito on the Pacific Ocean. Only two major locks would be required, since the great l? art of the route is at sea level. Lake Nicaragua would form a large part of the route, re­sulting in little construction work along this section. Such a canal would shorten by three days the movements of Ameri­can Battle Fleets from one coast to the other, relieve unemployment, and provide greater national defense. It would give this nation twice its pres­ent facilities to move its Fleet from coast to coast. War Department officials pointed out that the Panama Canal, if de­stroyed by an enemy, would leave this nation tremendously handicapped in defense, since Atlantic and Pacific Fleets could not merge. The Nicaraguin route is so located that all locks would be out of range and vision of an attacking Fleet. The only danger would be from aircraft. The terrain is such that air defense Continued on page four DUTY ON NEW DESTROYERS On and after dates given below the Bureau of Navigation will accept re­quests from enlisted personnel for assignment to duty in connE! ction with fitting out and afterward on board new destroyers which are scheduled for completion eight months later. Men must have good records, at least one year obligated service from date of commissioning, and if eligible for transfer to the Fleet Naval Reserve they must execute an agreement not to apply for transfer thereto until completion of one years' duty in the vessel to which assigned, from date of commissioning. Preference will be given to those men who have had previous destroyer experience, who are immediately available, and who are given favorable endorsement by their Commanding Officers.

The men who have achieved suc­cess are the men who have worked, read, thought more than was abso­lutely necessary, who have not been content with knowledge sufficient for the present need, but who have sought additional knowledge and stored it away for the emergency re­serve. It is superfluous labor that equips a man for everything that counts in life. ATHLETICS Athletics have been at a low ebb these past few weeks. Nevertheless, I think most of us have managed to get our workouts manning battle sta­tions and loading guns. These boys in · Spot One certainly ought to have their legs in shape. In spite of all the GQs our bowling team has kept going. Last Saturday evening they lost a close one to the Colorado. I heard that a couple of the boys thought it was a cinch to win and threw a couple ( or was it a couple) of wild ones. However, tonight they have a chance for revenge against the Louisville. The Louisville won from the Colorado and with our boys out for revenge this ought to be some match. Let's drop around to the Pre­mier Bowling Alleys at 1930 tonight and give the team a hand. Scouting Force Boxing Finals Speaking 0 f watching athletic events, don't forget that Scouting Force boxing and wrestling finals will be held tonight at 2000 at West Side Stadium, 645 Anaheim, Long Beach. All seats are reserved until 1945 for Navy personnel. Then at 1500, 29 and 30 January there is a Cruisers Scouting Force swimming meet at Anderson Memorial Recrea­tion Center, San Pedro. Hoston Nine Starts Spring Workouts This Coming Week Monday, 21 January, the ship's baseball team will start to get organ­ized for the coming spring season. In an interview with coach Lyons he told the writer, " We have some good material and the team ought to make a fine showing but no one has a sin­gle berth sewed up.
