The world's greatest short-cut The Panama Canal shortens the water route from New York to San Francisco by 8,000 miles. It establishes a new direct route from Lon don to Australia. It doubles the efficiency of the United States Navy. This huge excavation uniting two oceans the dream of centuries realized-is a monu mental example of modern business-like meth ods of doing things-finding the direct route, whatever the cost. Tho built upon a huge scale, the Panama Canal is a simple application of the short-cut method of business progress.
