BEGAN AS IRISH LAD CLEAN
ING DITCHES FOR CITY
Sailed Around Cape Horn as 8ee-
man at Age ol 10 Years
Now Under Fire
LOS ANGELES, Mar. 21.
(AP) The sobbing figure of Wil
11am Mulholland at the St. Francis
dam inquest here today turned
southern California's eyes back
ward 50 years to an Irish lad who
began a sparkling engineering ca
reer as a ditch cleaner here. .
The now grizzled chief engineer
of the department of water and
power rounded Cape Horn as a
seaman when he was 19. He came
to San Pedro and obtained employ
ment as a "zanzero," or ditch
worker when the city still held Its
pueblo appearance. Engineering
fascinated the youth and he be
gan the study of the science of
municipal water supply. g,- -
Later, when the fast growing
city was forced to glover deserts
and' across mountain : ranges for
its life blood,- Los Angeles chose
Mulholland a - man who had
swuna pick in her streets as
ner guiding genius. It devolved
upon him, in the years that follow
ed, to spend between $25, 000,
U00 and $40,000,000 In building
the arteries of water supply.
The long aqueduct into the wa
tersheds of the high Sierras, sec
ond in size only to that of the
New York aqueduct, was the out
standing achievement of Mulhol
land. Twenty years ago that water
way was driven into the- upper
Owens valley of Inyo county. Of
recent years, Mulholland has been
laying plans for driving' a super-
artery through to the Colorado
river if a storage dam Is built
On the witness stand today at
