The request for the survey was pre sented to the committee by Con gressman Milton H West. Information to this effect was received In Brownsville Thursday morning In a telegram from Con gressman West to J. O. Fernandes, secretary of the BrownVvIlle Naviga tion commission. In his telegram the congressman stated that he had requested tha Board of Army Engineer* td expedite the survev so that tha necessary appropriation for dredg ing the channel and tumin# basin to the 30-foot depth may bo included In the next River* and Harbors Mil. Would Coat I.SOA.OOO The additional five feet of dredg ing will require approximately 1500. 000. according to Captain A L. Lana of the army engineers, engineer on the Brownsville port project. Near ly 5.000.000 cubic feet of dirt would have to be moved, according to Captain Lane s figures. Order for the survey was charac terized bv Captain Lane as "good news", and not entirely unexpect ed.

Government Would Pay In event the 30 foot depth Is ap proved. the enttre cost of the addi tional dredging will be borne by the government, and the Browns ville port will have as much watef as Houston and other large sea ports The 30 foot depth would re sult in additional ships calling here, and would enable fully loaded oil tankers and other large ships to make the local port without trou ble. Very little time will be required to make the survey ordered by the Rivers and Harbors committee, ac cording to Ca;>taln Lane, who stalled that practically all of the data is available right now.
