(ODIMERCE SECII'TAIIY SPEAS
BEFORE ASSOCIATION
.VALLEY
WILL DEEPEN MISSISSIPlPI
Plan For Construction Of St. Lawrence
Shipway From great Lakes
To Atlantic Ocean
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Nov. 14, 1927.-
Speaking before members of the Mis-
sissippi Valley association here last
night, Herbert C. Hoover, secretary of
commerce, outlined plans for the im-
provement of mid-west waterways.
"The national mind," he said, "has
perhaps conceived of waterway de-
velopment as local projects of some
nearby improvement, instead of the
wide vision of a comprehensive sys-
tem of 12,000 miles of connected in-
land water transportation reaching
from the Gulf to the Northern frontiers
and from. the Lakes to the Atlantic
ocean.
"The plan is to deepen the 9,000
miles of the Mississippi and its tribu-
itaries. to minimum depths of six to
nine feet so as to permit modern barge
service on the Mississippi. Also in-
cluded in he plan is the construction
qf the St. Lawrence shipway from the
Lakes, to the Atlantic, thus opening
every lake port to the vessels of the
world over 3,000 miles of deep water-
s ways Q- the Great Lakes System.
Other waterways of less size would
also be developed in accordance with
the plan."
Congress Cooperates
During last year Congress has an-
thorized the finishing of the Missis-
iippi links, Hoover said, and has voted
an appropriation of 20 million dollars
for its execution.
In speaking of the Mississippi floodI
control Hooyer described the terriblet
scenes he witnessed as chairman ofI
k the flood control committee appointed
; by President Coolidge. "The great
delta of the Mississippi river has forI
untold centuries been the spillway for
~our interior rivers. They spread their
annual floods over these richest of al-
luyial lands for a thousand miles.
With the pressure of population, peo-
plp have invaded !th flood region and
with courage and resolution have con-
verted it into homes and productive
farms. And in so doing they have
forced the river in flood time to con-
fine itself to its own channel. The un-
precedented volume of water of this
year crumpled these barriers and
forced some 750,000 of our people to
flee their homes in jeopardy of their
lives.
Believes Public Approves N
"I believe the whole of the United
States is 'unanimous in that some
great engineering works would give1
securityagainst a repetition of these I
conditions. Our able engineering staff
under the leadership of General Jad-
win will have consumated their plans
by which these floods can be con-
trolled."
The remedy for lowering excessive
freight rates throughout the United
States would be in increasing the
waterway systems of the country.
Hoover b*ves. A component part
of this inland system would be the
Great Lakes whch last year bore 115-
000,000 tons of traffic. "The full in-
fluence of the Great Lakes could only
be reached by a deepening of the chan-
nel of the St. Lawrence river to per-
mit deep-sea shipping from the Great
Lakes to every port in the world,"
Hoover said. "Negotiations have been
entered into with the Canadian gov-
ernment for the fulfillment of these
plans," he said.
Alpha Nu To Initiate
Members Tonight
Alpha Nu will hold, its annual fall
initiation banquet tonight at 7:30 at
the Union. This banquet will be pre-
ceded by the formal initiation of the
28 new men in the society's room in

Angell hall.
Lyle E. Eiserman, '30L, president,
will act as toastmaster at the ban-;
quet. The program consists of speech-
es by Prof. James M. O'Neill, head
of the speech department, Gail E.
Densmore, and Carl G. Brandt. The
welcome to the new men will be de-
livered by Howard Simon, '30, and
one of the initiates will reply.

ed by this new school, Dean Whitney
explained, will be to bring the atten-
tion of a large number of specialists,
whose knowledge bears on the life
and training of children, to the proh-
lems of secondary education. Psych-
olgists, neurologists, pediatricians,
children's nurses, teaching experts,
an d a host of others all understand
one phase of a child's life. In this
school every effort will be made to co-
ordinate the abilities of these differ-
ent specialists toward discovering
better and more efficient means to
train and educate children. From this
standpoint Dean Whitney believes that
the new unit of the School of Educa-
tion will present a rare opportunity to
develop something constructive.
Children will be taken at the newj
school at the youngest possible age at
which they can be obtained. Children
in the earliest years of their lives
learn with great rapidity, and by thea
time they reach the kindergarten age
of five or six, teachers have found that
they are so set in their habits that
little can be done with them. It is
expected that the youngest children toj

This is a view of the huge network of girders of duraluminum which will
form the frame for the new LZI27, now under construction in Frederich-
shaven, Germany. Dr. Hugo Eckener, wel known German aeronaut, who
piloted the ZR3 to America several years ago, is in charge of the construc-
tion of the new airship.
A new gas, weighing exactly half as much as air, will be used in the
inflation of the giant dirigible, and the ship when completed is expected tc
have a cruising radius equivalent to ! - - ------
the distance around the world. Ten-
tative plans are now underway for etroit Theaters
using the new liner in trans-Atlantic
air service to be regularly established

many. Iteld Over One 11ore Week by
