1'HtJRSDAY, 29, iO'10 BLYIIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURlfiR NEWS Fiv* RFFEC! U. S.'5 U.S. Starts $227,000,000 Job Building Scl 0( Locks Second By JOHN KICK Nj;A Service Special Correspondent BALBOA. C. ?,.. Feb. 20.—Every hior'nliie «' 8 o'clock a booted, khaki - chid, business - like miui strides Into a bare little office in the iiey, 1 construction town ot Dlublo. lie Ls Col. Thomas 13. Uirkln, iifiny engineer, energetic cehler- polnt of $277,000.000 worth of construction work on the third .set of locks which will briiiK the Panama Canal up to dale. 'nine hundred families and 500 single men live mid eat in the new miarters which make tip Dinblo. 'Iliey are the advance gnarcl of the horde of 20,000 workers who will descend on the Cnivil /.one in 1911-44 to (Us il5.COO.C06 cubic yards of dirt. I'l.AN NKW TOWNS ON. TWO OCKANK Colonel Lurkin, who built i-'ort I'cck dam in Montana, is dli scling preliminary work, crews ot rim- mohd drillers (ire testing totmdn- tions lor new locks and bypass channels, Diablo is headquarters of the job. biter two more towns must be built. Agua Clnra on the Atlantic side and Cocoli on the Pacific. These, with preliminary surveys und plans, will occupy Colonel Lar- kln' nnd his engineers for the rest of this year. It will also use up most of tlic $15,000.030 appropriated. since graduating from West Point In 1915. Ft. Pert, biggest enrth dam In the world, was also his biggest job up to now, but It's behind him. From Montana to Panama was a tovigh shift— Hie heut had the Larkln family down for n while. The general lines of the job are clear. The present canal locks are in twin sets, each 1000 feet long n nil 110 icet wide. Already HICK are ships which will not go into them. So bigger locks are needed to lake the ships of the future. Also flic present locks are sltle- by-slde. A single lucky air-laid might put the whole thins out of commission. So the new locks. 1200 feet long by 135 feet wide will bs built from a half-mile to a mile away. !( complicates the- problem of attack. In general (he lock problem Is gigantic, but familial'. PKOI'OSK TO .sAn<X!UAIll> Pushing Canal Expansion ' *x There are details, though whicr are not yet settled, What to do, lor Instance, with the vast bulk o earth dug oiil? undoubtedly part 01 it will he used (o relocate liack* of the Panama Hailroad. whicn now crosses ground which will be dug up, Henry Ci. Martin, chief (fcologls 1 ot the Canal Zone, has an idea loi some of the rest. He would dividi the uniiHvUjiiblc parts of Oatin Lake into .sections by earth daiw Gatun lake is regarded as Hi most vulnerable part of Ihe ivhol : canal system. If Gatnn 15am «ct \ destroyed at present, water needed for navigation and operation of tho locks would lie lacking. With the Inke chambered oil, water would be retained even if the main dam were hit, and it would be harder to cripple the canal. But the new locks suggest that still greater water supplies than are provided by Gatun and Madden dams might be needed in future. So plans are being studied for another lake reservoir in the Chagres river above Giimbon. It is things like (his which Colonel Larkin must figure out before actual large-scale construction work up First picture ol Pdnnma'.s new city, Diablo, n construction town Kolug; to house workers digKiiiK ncu 1 locks. The remainder of (he job htis been ordered clone by congress, but tt.'c j starts next year, money has not ytt been appropriated. Most of the labor will have to be brought in. largely from Jamaica, for American laborers can't stand the sun of the Canal Zone, unri Panama can only furnish about 7500 of the needed 20,000. Engineers, skilled mechanics, construction bosses, and technicians will be brought from the United States. Blue-eyed, tanned, vigorous Colonel Larkin has been handling big engineering jobs for the army ever — PRESCRIPTIONS— Safe - - Accurate Your Prescription Druggist Fowler Drug Co.
