The Panama Canal
George Earle Raiguel
THE Panama Canal is an example of achieving the supposedly impossible. Intellect has risen supreme over difficulties advanced by nature. After four hundred years of discussion, the problem has been solved by approaching it with science, sanitation and unrelenting energy. Every visitor to the Canal Zone must be impressed by the triumph of Man. Those dismal miles of swamp, infested by disease; those vast tracts of forests, almost impenetrable; those rugged hills to be leveled, seemed unsurmountable obstacles. But today the canal is an assured success—a miniature world dropped in a morass to serve as a connecting link between the Occident and the Orient.
