Project That Has Aroused Much In
terest in Commercial Circles in
Swifer!and and France. -
A project to provide n independent
Atlantic port for Switzerland, Po
hemia and other inland European na
tions, in .order to render them eco
nomically independent of Germany af
ter the'-war is receiving attention in
France and Switzerland, according to
a report to the department of com
merce from Consul General Kavutial
at Nantes, Fiance.
This project, the consul states, has
sioused much interest at Nantes,
whose municipal authorities are con
ferring with commercial interests' in
Switzerland with a view to combined
action. The business men of Lyons
ftlso are. said to be watching the move
ment Willi deep interest, although they
have not yet joined it. The general
idea seems to be to construct suitable
rail connections between the inland
production centers and one of the
Loire ports Nantes, "'St. Nazaire, La
Uoelielle or Bordeaux. It is . also
thought possible the project may be
forwarded by the construction of
crnals Unking up the Ithine and Bhone
rivers with the navigable lake system
of Switzerland.
Existing railroads are available to!
foim the backbone of such construc
tion. Port facilities already have been
developed at several of the ports be
cause of war demands and railroad
yards and warehouses ample for the
beginners of such a project are avail
able at Nantes and St. Nazaire.
It is thought that after the war;
American' passenger and freight traffic
with central Europe as well as with
France will tend toward the Loire
port?, in preference the more distant
channel and North ?ea ports, which,
owing to their location and meteoro
logical conditions, increase the cost of
navigation and insurance.
