In today's issue of The Daily, C. W.
Blanco, '15, begins a series of articles
dealing with Porto Rico, his native
country. This is the sixth series of
of articles prepared by foreign stu-
depts of the University.
Ifr. Blanco will contribute three ar-
ticles which will be published in six in-
stallments. The subjects are as fol-
1. "Porto Rico."
2. "The Government of Porto
3. "Resources of Porto Rico."
Porto Rico (meaning "rich port"),
was discovered on November 16, 1493,
by Columbus, who took possession of
the island three days later. The con-
quest of the island from the aborigines
was made in 1508 by Ponce de Leon.
A year or two later he founded, near
the present site of San Juan, a town
which he named Caparra. The town
was afterwards called Porto Rico. In1
1521, by command of the king ofi
Spain, the capital was transferred to
its present location. Some years later
the name of Port Rico was given toE
the island, and the name of San Juant
to the capital. Several unsuccessful1
attempts were made by the English,
Dutch, and French to take the island
Porto Rico is the smallest .and mostf
eastern of the Great Antilles. Itsc
outline presents the appearance of an
almost geometrically regular parallel-
ogram, nearly three times longer thanc
broad, with its four sides followingJ
the four cardinal points. It is 95 :
miles long, 35 miles wide and has ana
area of 3668 square miles. The coastc
line is about 360 miles in length. Itsr
area is 300 square miles grater thanq
that of Delaware, Rhode Island, andJ
the District of Columbia combined. s
The location of the island has beens
described by a tourist in a rather in-v
genious manner, as follows:,The pen-u
insula of)Florida points directly to an
island which appears something like
a fish, with its tail bent towards
South America. It is called Cuba. The
nose of the fish extends towards an-
other island, shaped like a horse's
head, and known as Haiti. The horse's
ears stretch up in the direction of
Cuba, while the nose is almost on a
line with a still smaller island, Porto
The general aspect of the island is
that of a picturesque, hilly landscape.
Its beautiful and fertile plains, the
abundance of gently flowing streams,
the variety of vegetation, including
palms which elevate their fronds
above the lower stratum of evergreen,
the bright patches of cultivated
fields, the clear skies, mild tempera-
ture, and invigorating winds give the
country a very engaging aspect.
The climate of Porto Rico, although
warm, is more agreeable' and health-
ful than that of any of the other An-
tilles. The average daily temperature
is 80 degrees Fahrenheit, but it is
ameliorated by a cooling north breeze
which gently prevails during the hot-
est days. The winter season al-
though there is neither snow or frost,
lasts from November to March.
The largest cities of Porto Rico are
San Juan and Ponce. San Juan is
probably the oldest city over which
floats the American flag. It is built
on a small island guarded by Morro
Castle. Here is the light tower with
its powerful lantern shining over the
ocean from a height of 200 feet. San
Juan boasts of a fine Y. M. C. A., mag-
nificent buildings of historical import-
ance, public squares, theaters, an ex-
cellent harbor, a public library, Car-
negie library, and well paved streets.
The up-to-date railroad station at San
Jaun is the terminal of an extensive
system over the island. A net of
street car lines connects San Juan
with its beautiful and picturesque sub-

Coal Shortage Hits Pere Marquette
Detroit, Jan. 12. - Announcement
that the Pere Marquette would reduce

Washington, Jan. 12.-The last ses-
sion of the sixty-fourth congress ap-
propriated $313,384,212 for the 1917
naval building program. The act was
approved Aug. 29, 1916, and the money
has ever since been available.
Of the 66 vessels authorized, however,
in this, the greatest preparedness step
in the history of the nation, 66 keels
yet remain to be laid.
Inability to agree on terms and costs
demanded by private yards have been
responsible for the delay, according to
Contracts are yet to be signed for
eight of the proposed new vessels, and
of the other 58 there remain 18 author-
ized submarines for which the build-
ing terms are not yet complete.
For the entire program of construc-
tion, bids have been received for all
but one vessel. This is an ammunition
ship for which bids were opened Jan.
3. Contracts already have been placed
for four battleships, 20 destroyers, and
30 submarines. For 18 of the last
named, however, certain details yet re-
main to be work.d out before their
construction can be started.
Four authorized battle cruisers are
also awaiting final action on building
terms before their keels can be laid
Under the appropriation act provision
cust be made for the entire program
by Feb. 29.
