Transcript Volume I In Houston Ship Channel Number IV SAM HOUSTON SCHEDULE CITY OF HOUSTON Continued on page four Houston was founded in 1836 by John K. and A. C. Allen, and was named after General Houston who achieved independence for Texas on the battlefield at San Jacinto. The battlefield is only a few miles below the city on the banks of the Houston Ship Channel. The Houston Ship Channel was built at a cost of 23 million dollars to bring ocean going vessels up Buffalo Bayou to the city. It is approximately fifty miles long and is 30 feet deep with a minimum bottom width of 150 feet. Since 1920 when it was first opened to traffic its shipping has increased 13- fold, con­tributing to place Houston as the first cotton port in the country, and the third city in exports in the country. There are only five other ports that export more goods to foreign coun­tries. As a cotton center, Houston is un­excelled. It is the largest cotton spot in the world, that is, it carries a larg­er stock of cotton in warehouses than any other city in the world. During a normal cotton season, compresses, warehouses, and terminal plants can handle the entire cotton crop of the South. Three sulphur mines within 50 miles of Houston supply 85 percent of the worlds sulphur. It is found between 1000 and 1500 feet below the surface, is melted underground by steam and forced to the surface where it is run into wooden frames and allowed to set. Eighteen railroads make connec­tions to all parts of the country. Three airlines furnish airway com- 9 - 16 DECEMBER At Anchor San Francisco.
