LONDON (U.R)— The Dauntless
Channel Tunnel Co., formed
more than 80 years ago, atill
is trying to promote the idea of
an undersea tunnel connecting
Britain and France.
Sir Herbert Walker, company
chairman, insists the proposal is
more attractive today than at
any time since Queen Victoria
gave her blessing to the project.
Engineers believe it could best
be driven from behind the
Shakespeare Cliffs, between Do
ver and Folkestone on the south
ern coast of Britain, to a point
near Wissant, between Boulogne
and Calais, in France. That
would make it about 31 miles
long, more than 20 under the
open sea.
Estimated pre-war cost was !
around 30,000,000 ($120,000,0001,
although increases in building
and supply costs indicate some
$160,000,000 today.
Two Tunnels Proposed
The job—two tunnels 20 feet
in diameter and 50 feet apart,
connected by frequent cross gal
leries—would take about five or
six years to complete. Electric
trains could make the journey
from Britain to France in about
45 minutes.
A 2,000-yard “trail bore” from
the Dover cliffs out to sea, made
around the turn of the century,
served a vital purpose during
the recent war. British scientists
with delicate acoustic equip
ment kept 24-hour-a-day watch
for any enemy attempt to drive
an invasion tunnel through from
the continent.
An English scientist dismisses
the danger of atomic destruction
with the argument: “What could
an atom bomb do to a tunnel 30
or 40 feet beneath the seabed?”
H A N C E D—Despite strenu
ous protests from the U. S. and
England, Nikola Petkov, (above)
leader of the Bulgarian peasant
party, was convicted and hanged
on charges of conspiring against
the country’s Communist-domi
nated government. "
Aluminum Favored
In 1948 Cart
DETROIT, (U.R). Metal experts
predict a trend toward wider use
of aluminum as a replacement
for steel in America’s 1948 auto
Kaiser-Frazer Corp. already
has announced plans to substitute
a seven-pound, 21-gallon alumi
num gasoline tank for a 22-pound
steel tank of the same capacity.
Since its organization in 1945, the
Willow Run firm has been carry
ing out extensive development
work in the use of aluminum.
With a planned production of 1.
500 automobiles a day in 1948,
Kaiser-Frazer expects to save 17
tons of scarce steel daily in its
gasoline tanks alone.
Other companies also are und
erstood to be working on similar
plans. According to trade sources,
aluminum is being considered for
air cleaners, stone deflectors,
head lamp adjusting ring, hub
cap name plates, generator re
gulator cover, scuff plates for
doors and many other parts.
