St. Lawrence Seaway job WASHINGTON — Winter's SUbzero tem- its St. La\vr<»npfi SMWSJV smrrmrirv arrnee v,,,;^^ t~ ' r- ,i~>~ ./"..., ii --i_ •. „,;'. ' / -''« ' • '• * WASHINGTON — Winter's subzero peratures that have sent Great Lakes-St. Lawrence shiping into hibernation do not prevent giant earth-moving machinery from clawing up enormous bites of earth and rock from future canal channels and lock sites along the international rapids of the St. Lawrence river. Cold weather has actually improved conditions for handling stubborn marine clay by the big earth-movers, according to a St. Lawrence Seaway Development corporation official. Designs been completed for the Seaway corporation's new administration building at Massena. N. Y., and construction is expected to begin this spring so the colonial- type structure will he ready for oeeupancy by June, 1957. Canada is already buildin? its St. Lawrence Seaway authority across the river at Cornwall, Out. Private contractors working on the United States portion of the seaway have about 350 employes and more than $7 million worth of equipment on the job. New York and Ontario power projects and the Canadian seaway workmen bring this on-site employment to more than 6,000. In addition, field supervising engineers and their staffs for the four government agencies involved exceed 500. Several hundred more engineering-designers, drafts-' men, technicians, specification writers and staff assistants are working on the St. Lawrence projects at Buffalo, Boston, Montreal and Toronto. AGREEMENTS have been reached regarding construction of a new international bridge to Canada's Cornwall island. This will replace the antiquated Roosevelt bridge from the United States to Cornwall. Canadians will build the substructure. The two seaway agencies will build this bridge. Construction' of the United States portion of the seaway was nine per cent complete at the end of 1955, with an expenditure of $S million. By the end of 1956, the goal is 35 per cent of construction completed, with $30 million more spent. •/ . ' Total cost of the seaway is estimated at S30D million, the United States paying $90 million and Canada $215 million. The §600 million power project costs will be divided equally between New York State and Ontario. ! United States seaway work in 1956 will include completion of excavation for Robinson bay and Grasse. River locks. These are WHAT OTHER EDITORS SAY the .only seaway locks on United 'States soil. - ' . EXCAVATION has been the big construction item along the St. Lawrence during the first season, but. in 1956 the giant earthmovers will have competition for attention in the form of concrete-pouring—on a big scale. Lock equipment that must be fabricated .includes four enormous derricks complete, with their operating machinery. One will have a 90-foot boom capable of lifting 46 tons at a 68-foot radius. The other three will have SO-foot booms capable of lifting the same load at a 45-foot radius. Power facilities are progressing on schedule, and New York and Ontario have set the summer of 195S as their target, date for starting the production of St. Lawrence power. While work on dams, dikes and powerhouse is under way, designs have been carefully worked out for enhancing and maintaining the natural beauty of the historic St. Lawrence. The huge dikes and spoil areas will be reforested. Roads, water front and new parks will be landscaped. Recreation areas will be established. Thousands of visitors are expected during construction and even more after the navigation and power projects go into operation. Robert Moses, New York Power authority chairman, said in a recent report that ''the authority reiterates that its objective is not only to generate low cost power and to help build the new seaway, but to conserve the natural beauty of this magnificent river and to promote the healthy develop, rnent of the entire frontage for industry, residence and recreation." ' DALLAS MORNING XEWS Tho exposure of the evils of society, government and business is a part of the duty or the "newspaper. Bui it is n part of that duly because it is a part of printing thc news. When journalism makes new? incidental to the expose, rather than the other way around, it gets into slanted news. And slanted news is ^usually bad in its net effect. The Dallas News has pretty consistently tried to keep its printed matter within, the area of what is priviledged under 'fool laws because it feels that such a policy is fairest to the reader. But"it is also safest to the siockholders. A reputable newspaper ought not to want to wron" anybody for the sake of a headline.

In any event it is a wise man who knows that such accomplishments are simply not in his line and who refuses to even try, regardless of patronizing friends and wifely exhortations.
