Hoover said fears of the railroad industry that the seaway would reduce mil business appeared ^o bo an "entirely unnecessary alarm." He said the railroads now have all the traffic they arc able to handle under existing rate schedules. He added that the interstate Commerce Commission should afford the carriers "more reasonable treatment" .in the matter of rates. Marshall told the subcommittee that completion of the project would niiikc possible construction and repair of RO per cent of the world's ocean-going vessels on the Great Lakes. He added that the St. La-.v- rcnce route, for at least one-third of its length., would be safe Irom submarines. The secretary asked early approval by Congress of a 1941 Cana- clian-U.

Provide a line of communication safe from submarines for at least one-third of its length. 3. Assure a "tremendous srftirce" of electrical power comparable to the Tennessee Valley Authority.- 4.
