WANTS MORE ARMY AVIATORS
Brigadier General Deplores Lack of
Men For Aeronautics.
Washington, Nov. 10. In his annual
report just made public Brigadier Gen
eral James Allen, chief signal otllcer of
the army, recommends that additional
ofllcers and enlisted men bo provided
for training in aeronautical and other
work of the signal corps.
General Allen said the army has the
money, but not sutllclent number of
ofllcers for aviation.
General Allen says: "The progress
and development of this auxiliary to
the military establishment during this
period is believed to be without prece
dent. Although the United States was
tho first nation to recognize the aero
plane for military purposes and car
ried out tho first official government

EARTHQUAKES LITTLE FELT.
Commission's Report Tells of Year's
Work, Including Lighting Plants,
Culebra Cut, Completion of Locks
and Checking Landslides.
Tho great mechanical problems con
nected with the construction of the
Panama canal, which is to be opened
to tho government in January, 1015,
pass in review in tho nnnual report of
the Isthmian canal commission just
made public. Tho record of the year's
achievements in tho gigantic task that
is being worked out by tho Washing
ton government, finder congressioual
appropriations that so far aggregate
Completion ot almost three-quarters of
Culebra cut. Total excavation ot material
from Culebra during year, 10,221,672 cubic
yards at averaso cost of E8.8 cents per

and coaling stations.

Elaborate scheme for lighting tho caril.
Safeguarding of the canal against big
Locks a Problem.
Tho locks havo been a great problem.
Designs for the approach walls at all
locks, except one, havo been prepared.
Contracts in force at the beginning of
tho fiscal year were practically com
pleted and new contracts entered into
for a vast amount of frames, valves,
gates and other paraphernalia needed
to put the canal Into operation. More
than 054 tons of castings were mado
on tho Isthmus. Building of tho great
lock gates each leaf of which is fifty
four feet eight Inches high was expe
dited. At each lock entrance strong
fender chains attached to powerful
springs will bo installed to prevent
ships from battering down the locks.
Tho Culebra cut is ten miles long
nnd deep enough to receive the United
States capitol, dome and all. From
this cut, despite tho enormous excava
tion during tho year, on July 1 last
there remained 23,021,140 cubic yards
to bo removed. Estimates of excava
tion necessary in this cut havo been
largely increased to allow for the great
earth slides. Last year these slides
that had to bo removed from tho canal
cutting after it had been practically
completed was 4,870,378 yards, or over
30 per cent of all tho material removed
from tho cut.
These slides have occurred where the
material excavated was left on a slope
steeper than the permanent Incline will
bo, and the trouble is expected to cease
when the nntural slope of the canal
banks is restored.
Breaks have occurred on both sides
of the cut where the underlying rock 13
of poor quality and Is broken up and
squeezed upward by the pressure from
beneath and from tho sides, Interrupt
ing the drainage and covering up tho
railroad tracks. To meet this condition
intermediate benches have been cut
along the slopo to distribute tho top
weight and reduce tho amount of ma
terial to be removed. It is declared
that when tho bottom grado of tho ca
nal is reached no further trouble need
be anticipated, as greater stability will
be given by tho water.
Slides Didn't Increase Cost.
Tho slides have caused no increase
In the total estimated cost of the Cule
bra cut. Tho Cucaracha slide covered ,
47.1 acres and tho Culebra slide 40.0
The total appropriations made by
congress leave $81,030,531 of the esti
mated cost of canal yet to be appro
priated. Tho temperature for the calendar
year 1010 was about normal for all the
stations. Tho highest recorded was
04 degrees F. at Ancon on March 13,
1010, and tho lowest, 01 degrees F at
Culebra on March 21, 1010.
Tho averago rainfall over the canal
zone for tho calendar year 1010 was
well above normal, being unusually
heavy in July and December, but be
low that of the previous year.
Slight seismic disturbances were of
frequent occurrence during the yenr,
very few of which, however, were
physically observed in tho zone.
Tho work performed for tho sanitary
department has increased, tho grass
cutting area having been further ex
tended to Include moro territory. The
amount expended by the quartermas
ter's department on orders from the
sanitary department for zone sanita
tion was $210,403.29 and for hospitals,
quarantine, etc., $77,284.48.
At tho end of tho fiscal year this de
partment was operating tho Tivoll ho
tel, nineteen line hotels, three night
restaurants, sixteen European laborers'
messes and fourteen common laborers'
kitchens, an increase of ono hotel and
a decrease 'f three messes nnd four
kitchens. Tho total number of meals
served by tho hotels was 2,210,740,
which was an increase of 40,289 over
tho previous fiscal year. The cost of
supplies per meal was 25.44 cents, or
0.57 cent moro than during tho previ
ous fiscal year, nnd the expenso In pre
paring and serving meals was 0.02 cent
less, or 5.01 cents, resulting In a de
