' "The plan is beginning to take on the aspect of a flying > wedge, with Its apex somewhere in Mexico and its advance through the -capitals and chief centers of • Central America down toj the Panama canal," «aid George Curtis Peek,, commercial at- tache tO [Panama, Costa ftlfia and Nlcaratfirt the other day ujton his return front a.«MWSt»to-cOast tour of the United fitafes. ' , . , Mi 1 . Peek poihteUjsut that although the oastefn *nd 'Middle states gavd the ide* its first impetus, it is the Western states which now are giving • lit'substfcntrtaf, support and pushing for. action. \ The announcement • that President tioover has signed the first deficiency bill providing for an appropriation of $50,000 for a survey by tfnlted States engineers of the best /route through the Central Americas has added fresh encouragement to this part of the world. Colneldentally congress' paused 'a bill calling for an appropriation of $1,000,000 for the construction of a highway from the'Canal Zone to Ar- raljan, In Panama, and for ferries to operate across the Panama canal near Lthe Pacific terminus. •Panama will extend this highway _p Chorrera» Panama province, to connect* with other highways already constructed, or under construction, which will extend as far as David, Panama's airport of entry near . the Costa Rlcan border. . Mexico 'has promised that, niuch of the Mexican sector of the Fan-American highway, extending from Laredo, Tex., or Nuevo Laredo, state of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, through Mexico .City to-'the Ouatamalan border, will be completed within the next two years under a road program she already has under way. • The survey .commission probably will make its headquarters In Panama. 'It will find that Panama and Mexico, the two termini of the first long stretch of the highway, may be virtually eliminated from the problem. After leaving Mexico economic, climatic and topographical consld- e rat ton s suggest that the international highway should follow the Pacific slope of • the volcanic .range which traverses, Central America. In most of these countries are long stretches of .dirt roads in passable condition'and several stretches' of paved highways already built or. under construction. With but a single gap a roadway extends across the entire * terrain of Guatamala. Much • of the trail was lidd out by the 'Conquistadors when engineering practices demanded as few river crossings as possible and heavy, grades were a lesser objection. Engineers say that these Obstacles could . be removed with little difficulty.' Part of this route reaches an altitude of 7,000 feet. 'Under a contract signed In 1925 the government of Salvador has provided for its entire share of the Pan-American highway. There are two possible routes from the Honduran border to Managua, Nicaragua. The first leads from the frontier through the 'mountain country of Lake Managua to Matagalpa and thence by way."bf the rfoad recently_ dompleted to^the capital. •from Managua it Is.:how'possible to > f(iw»- Mrt H?t*, Ofite* •, tad-., May 2.- ward BtJrk, NeW<Sa*tl*, claims h« is able to rflfaenibef forty years befort the time 1}« wM,borB, f4llttfc set ddwfe his age At 100, admitting hehad lived but sixty years W this world, but » he cbuld remember at least fortV yean of existence In anmher planet of state.
