PATHFINDER INSPECTS ROADS
A. L. Westward Here on His Sixth
A. L? Westgard, pathfinder for the
American Automobile Association,
was in Columbia a short time Tester
day. In his talk with Dean- Walter
Williams, president of the Missouri
Old Trails Association, Mr. Westgard
said that less work had been done on
the cross-state highway in Missouri
than he had expected. The marking
of the road In Boone County was the
best in the state, he said.
This is the sixth trip of Mr. West
gard from ocean to ocean arid 'he will
make another before a route is finally
selected. Mrs. Westgard was with him
on her fifth trip. They are -making
careful notes of the condition of the
road, culverts, markings, etc. Five
days ahead of their schedule, they
were slightly delayed in Central Mis
souri by bad roads. They left for
Boonville yesterday afternoon.
From four routes now under consid?
eration the American Automobile As
sociation will select one upon which
it will spend $10,000,000.

WORKS ON CANAL
G. C. Dobson, Former Stu
dent of School of Engin

THERE TWO YEARS
He and Wife to Return to
Isthmus After Visit With
"If nothing worse happens than has
already happened, the first vessel will
be put through the Panama Canal in
one year. In two years the work will
be practically completed, but the fin
ishing touches will require five
That was the statement made by
G. C. Dobson, who for two years has
been employed in the construction
work of the spillway of the Gatun
dam. Mr. Dobson was graduated from
the School of Engineering at the Uni
versity of Missouri in 1905. For some
time after leaving school, he did en
gineering work in the Philippine Is
lands, but since 1910, he has been
working on the Gatun spillway.
Mr. Dobson describes the Gatun
spillway as a place to get rid of the
surplus water of Gatun Lake. It also
is a conduit for this water to the
power plant where all the machinery
is operated. The spillway itself will
cost about seven million dollars.
The dam and spillway are of con
crete and are solid except for a tun
nel with an air space around it In
this tunnel is the operating machin
ery of the whole structure. The crest
of the great dam is circular which
will make the overflow side a huge
double curve surface. This '-will bea
sight worth the tourist's while as it
is the largest one of the kind in the
world, he says.
The dam itself is a dirt and rock
structure with a hydraulic core al
most as hard as cement. Mr. Dobson
says that it is so large that tourists
have often stood on the dam itself and
mistaking it for a natural mound have
asked, "Where is the Gatun dam?"
There are three immense concrete
locks to hold the water back of the
dam in check.
Mrs. Dobson, who was a resident of
Columbia, has been with Mr. Dobson
in the canal zone and intends to re
turn with him when he goes back
next week. They came to Columbia
to visit with Mrs. Dobson's family who
live at 1205 Broadway.
