New Data
Washington, Jan. 7.-Soldiers and
sailors and prohibition agents aren't
the only ones who risk their lives for
their country. An expedition spon-
sored by the United States Geologi-
cal Survey has turned from an ad-
venture as thrilling as those staged
upon the fields of France.
Birdseye Heads Party
Over a trail of danger, beset by cat-
aracts and treacherous currents and
every other obstacle of an untamed
river, the expedition fought its way
500 miles in the roaring Colorado riv-
er through the Grand Canyon to Cali-
fornia to collect engineering data. The
data is to be used in locating sites at
which dams can be built to utilize
the wasting waters of the Coloradc
river for power development and ir-
rigation purposes. As a result of the
daring survey, vast mineral and agri-
cultural development in the west may
be expected in the near future.
The party was headed by Colonel
C. H. Birdseye, chief topographic en-
gineer of the Geological survey. The
other members were: E. C. La Rue
and Herman Stabler, hydraulic engi-
neers; R. P. Moore, state geologist of
Kansas; R. W. Burchard, topographic,
engineer; Lewis R. Freeman of Pasa-
dena, Cal., a well-known explorer and
writer; ,a pilot; three boatmen, and
cook. Their equipment, in addition to
subsistence, consisted of the usual in-
struments used by engineers and geol-
ogists, a radio receiving outfit and
complete photographic equipment.
Get Radio Messages
In spite of adverse prophecies, some
of them widely circulated in print
that a radio could get nothing in the
depths of the canyon, the Los Angeles,
station was heard plainly, and mess-
ages were received at various points
from Salt Lake City, San Francisco
and Colorado Springs.
Through the upper Granite gorge
the party found extreme difficulty in
getting a footing for instrument and
rod stations, for the walls are steep
and the water is swift but the survey
line was carried through without a
break. The walls here were only
about 125 feet apart at the water's
edge, and at some places the survey-
ors carried on their work. A contin-
nous line was run through the canyon
and detailed surveys were made o
possible dam sites at several places
with the hope that these . wild any
wasted waters might be put in harn-
ess for Shuman use.

C. H. Birdseye

C. H. Birdseye, who is leading an expedition organized by the United
States Geological Survey to find the location of new natural resources and
to chart the perilous country around the Grand Canyon, Colorado. Their
first task was to force the Colorado river through to California to obtain
engineering data of this era. This they did, covering 500 miles of these
treacherous waters.

Hazeloin, Cream is the best
thing that we have found to
keep the hands soft and white
or for the face. Witch hazel,
benzoin, and boric acid make
it very healing. Men use it after
shaving and women like it as a
base for powder.
