WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY'5/1041 Canadians Rush Roads For Britain BLYTHEVILLK. (ARK.) "COURIER NEWS FOTWY BUSINESS By NEA Service LONDON.—The fastest working sons-of-guiis who ever struck this little island are the Royal Engineers of the Canadian army. From Northern Scotland to the Downs, they have been tearing up the countryside and building roads at a rate that even has the English army gasping- in astonishment Their latest feat, which Canadian Canadian Royal Engineers . .. fastest road builders ever to hit BrilaTnT' officers pass off as a "routine ac-, complishment." is that of doing a two-year highway job in seven! weeks. j The Engineers went to work with j eir giant seven-ton American! tractors and road graders. They i tore their way across fields and through biishlands, and in seven weeks time a glistening, straight 22-foot highway had been built That's the way with the Canadian Army Engineers, because every man has done 'his stretch with the best construction companies of the Ontario hardrock country. They're hard bitten, they're sloppy, they're just as apt not to salute when a visiting general swishes by. But they know how to build roads in an incredibly short time.
