Early acceptance trials by the Air Service indicated that the T-2 was capable of carrying heavy loads and could be adapted to make the long-distance flight from coast to coast. Modifications would be required, however. The center section of the wing would have to be reinforced to handle the added weight resulting from the greatly increased fuel supply. The standard 492-liter (130-gallon) fuel tank, located in the leading edge of the wing, was supplemented by a 1,552-liter (410-gallon) tank in the wing center section and a 700-liter (185-gallon) tank mounted in the fuselage cabin area. Also installed in the cabin was a second set of controls to facili-tate control of the airplane when the two-man crew exchanged positions.
The first two attempts of the coast-to-coast flight started from San Diego to take advantage of prevailing westerly winds and to use the refined fuel available in California, which had a higher natural octane rating than other fuels. On the first try, fog in the mountain passes 80 km (50 mi) east of San Diego forced Kelly and Macready to turn back. They remained aloft long enough, however, to test the performance of the airplane under extended flight conditions. The second attempt ended at Fort Benjamin Harrison, near Indianapolis, when a cracked water jacket caused the engine to seize. In the course of the preparations and the two unsuccessful attempts at a west-east crossing, several new engines were installed, and many minor modifications were made to the T-2. All of this work was carried out at the Army Air Service installation at McCook Field, Dayton, Ohio.

e, there is a natural rock dam with a verticaldrop of at least four feet at its lowest point. At this stage of the waterthe dam is impassible for fish. The only fish observed below the dam weresmall minnows. We were informed that fishermen catch suckers and occa-sionally black bass below this dam during the spring freshet. Little min-nows, apparently chubs, and young suckers, were seen also above thenatural dam. Only a very short section of the creek is suitable for maintaining largefish during the dry months. The bed of the creek for the entire distanceexamined by us consists chiefly of black slaty shale, over which the waterspreads out in a very thin sheet and reaches a very high temperature. Allthe upper feeders of the creek except Giars Brook dry up entirely in hotmonths. Pierces dam, constructed of logs, is about eight feet high. Schoepflinsdam is a timber and dirt construction 144 feet wide and 14 feet deep atthe highest part. It backs the water about one-half mile. The ice work

Many dams have been swept out of Eighteen MileCreek by ice and freshets. The freshets are caused chiefly by meltingice. The dam at Schoepflins holds a reserve supply of water which isavailable for use in the town of Hamburg when necessary to fight fire orto supplement the town supply obtained from their Holly system. The investigation extended up the stream to North Boston, four milesfrom Hamburg. At this point the stream is very small and the water isvery shallow. The proper course recommended in this case is to stock the detachedportions of the creek with black bass, white perch, yellow perch and per-haps white bass. In this way all the interests involved will be subservedand no injury caused to any one. Trout Distribution The work of distributing trout was continued much longer than usualin 1909. The waters wer
