LANDSLIDE IN PARK
CREATES PROBLEM
Situation Follows Efforts
of Zoo Officials to Add
to Parking Space.
Soil erosion—a relatively unheard
of menace in Washington—has de
veloped in Rock Creek Park due to
efforts of Zoo officials to create addi
tional automobile parking space for
the public.
Although the problem is concen
trated at present in a comparatively
small area, it may be difficult to deal
with, according to Agriculture De
partment soil erosion experts.
As a result of a landslide of sev
eral hundred tons of earth opposite
the elephant house, Rock Creek has
been half blocked, thus setting the
stage for a possible flood in the valley
in the event of heavy rains.
The section affected Is just down
stream of the Klingle Road Bridge
that spans the creek. At the orders
of Zoo officials, truckloads of earth
were recently dumped there to lay the
foundation for a new parking space.
Trees Are Felled.
Apparently weakened by recent
rains, the pile of earth sheared off
and catapulted into the valley, taking
with it several sizable trees on the
hillside.
Agriculture Department authorities
say that because the trees, which
anchored the earth to the slope, have
been swept away, difficulty will now be
experienced in preventing erosion. The
swath cut down the hillside is around
50 feet in width and extends the entire
distance from the rim of the valley to !
the creek.
While officials of the National Cap
ital Parks have made no official protest,
some foresee possibilities of flood dan
ger upstream, because of the narrowed
channel of Rock Creek, in the event
of high water.
Dr. Mann may seek a Works Progress j
Administration project at the site of 1
the slide, so as to cope with the ero
sion problem. Another possibility is J
that the Civilian Conservation Corps
may be asked to set up a camp there to
deal with it.
survey is Conducted.
Meanwhile, because of the increase
in interest on the part of the motoring
public in the new animals that Dr,
Mann brought from the Orient last
year, the Keystone Automobile Club
has conducted a preliminary survey
in conjunction with Zoo officials and
William S. Canning, engineering di
rector of the club, says that parking
space can be at least doubled. Dr. E.
P. Walker, assistant director of the
Zoo, just completed a survey with Mr.
Canning, who believes 900 additional
cars can be parked in 16 acres he be
lieves can be converted into new park
ing areas.
The Keystone Club says that areas
suggested for the new parking network !
include unused space in front of the 1
bear dens near the Harvard street i
entrance, 171 cars; back of the pelican
pond and across the creek toward
Adams Mill road < w'ith access over a
new bridge), 300 cars; at the foot of
the easterly slope of the lion house 1
hill. 125 cars; at the foot of west ;
slope of hill, 83 cars; along baseball
field, 84 cars; opposite ball field and !
along creek. 180 cars; on point of j
land near wolf dens, 68 cars; near I
monkey house, 107 cars; north of yak I
range, 93 cars, with possibly 260 more :

Pan-American
_(Continued From First Page )
American day celebration here was a
broadcast arranged at 3 p.m. today by
women associated with the people's
mandate for the ratification of the
inter-American peace treaty drawn up
at the Buenos Aires Conference in
1936.
Text of Address.
The text of President Roosevelt's
address follows:
There could be no more fitting oc
casion than the present for me to
greet my friends of the 20 other
American republics. We have learned
in this Western Hemisphere what
community of interest really means.
We have worked for it, created it and
we now glory in it. Properly, there
fore, Pan-American Day is set aside
as an annual testimony to the signifi
cance which the American family of
nations has for the world.
Never was that significance greater
than today. The 21 American re
publics present proudly to the rest
of the world a demonstration that the
rule of justice and law can be substi
tuted for the rule of force: that
resort to war as an instrument of
policy is not necessary; that inter
national differences of all kinds can
be solved through. peaceful negotia
tion; that the sanctity of the pledged
word faithfully observed and generous
ly interpreted offers a system of se
curity with freedom-. The three hun
dred millions of citizens in the Ameri
can republics are not different from
other human beings. We have the
same problems, the same differences,
even the same material for controversy
which exists elsewhere. Yet. we have
undertaken contractual obligations to
solve these normal human differences
by maintaining peace; and that peace
we are firmly resolved to maintain. It
shall not be endangered by controver
sies within our family; and we will not
permit it to be endangered from eg
gression coming from outside of our
hemisphere.
This, a common objective of all of
us, forms a lasting foundation for the
maintenance of an international un
derstanding unique in the world.
Heavy Responsibility.
The American peoples, who today
fortunately live as good neighbors, not
only enjoy a privilege, but undertake
a heavy responsibility. Fortunate in
bMng remote from the tumult of con
flicting doctrines and from the hor
rors of armed conflict—from the
tragedies whose shadows lie heavy
on the world, the American repub
lics, nevertheless, fare a grave test.
If our good fortune is to continue, our
will must be strong.
All of us gained independence be
cause our fathers were willing to sac
rifice their lives and all they pos
sessed for a great ideal. Some part
of that duty to sacrifice rests also on
us. We have progressed far along
the path that leads to government by
the people in the interest of all the
people. Our Democratic system has
conferred on all of us an inestimable
gift of individual liberty within the
law. We are vitally concerned with
preserving the high standards of in
ternational restraint and morality,
which the lesson of centuries has
taught is the first requirement of
peaceful relationships between na
tions.
Now, more than ever before, we of
this American Hemisphere must make
plain that these principles, upon which
so great a civilization is founded, are
vibrant, productive and dynamic.
National and international law and
morality are not the restraints of
weaklings; they are signs of serene
strength—confidence in our purpose
and ability to maintain independence
and democracy.

will once more assemble. This time it j
will be in the great capital of Peru.
During these turbulent years the inter
American conferences have come to
be an instrument for bringing ever
closer the relationships between our
several nations. In Lima we have a
renewed opportunity to counsel to
gether. I assure you that we in the
United States ha\e found peculiarly
welcome the views, the opinions, the
friendly advice of the statesmen of
our sister republics. Public opinion in
all of our countries benefits from
learning with greater frequency and in
greater extent the thoughts, the de
sires, the needs of the peoples of the
other American nations.
In constant testimony of our mutual
friendship and trust is the increasing
progress In communications. The
North, Central and South American
voices which reach us through the sh
are those of friends. Only a short
time ago the people of the United
States were enabled to hear a gracious
message broadcast to them by my
friend the President of Argentina. A
few days later they listened to the
address delivered to them by the min
ister of foreign affairs of Brazil, whom
we hed been privileged to have in
Washington as Brazil s Ambassador
during the past three years. His sig
nificant words were applauded in every
American home.
Our ideal is democratic liberty. Our
instrument is honor and friendship.
Our method is Increased understand
ing. Our basis is confidence. So and
not otherwise, in common effort we
safeguard in this new world the great
rights of our liberties and build our
civilization for the advancement of
humanity throughout the world.
