Device for Testing and Meaaurl
'IP ran aro d by tho United State? Department
I ot Agriculture.)
A comprehensive program of rood
bulldUjg research and Investigation
.luring tho coming season at the Ar
lington Experimental station near
Washington, D. G., is announced by
tho bureau of public ronda of the
United States Department of Agri
culture. Impact tests on pavements,
subgrado studies and otbor experi
ments, which last year aroused much
interest among engineers, will be con
tinued ns well us several other Unes
of work underway last year and new
ones to bo started.
Bituminous wearing surfaces ore to
he investigated to determine tho rea
son for the formation of waves and
irregularities and to settle mooted
questions concerning tho proper mix
ture anti the proper minorai aggregates
to be used In bltuiplnouB roads. Moro
than 80 sectlonb of different types of
bituminous construction will be built
These will Include mixtures of differ
ent mechanical grading mid with
differont percentages of bitumen of
several degrees of hardness. Sections
are being constructed on a circular
track about COO feet In circumference,
the roadway bolng 18 feet wide. On
this roadway will bo operated a 6
ton army truck equipped with solid
tires. The truck will be operated bi a
varying path so as to cover practically
the entire width of the roadway and
[will travel at a speed of from 12 to
lo miles an hour for flv? or six
?months, or until some results are ob
tained loading to the solution of the
Resistance to Wear.
There ls considerable discussion as
?to what ls Hie proper criterion to be
used in selecting and Judging concrete
aggregates that wUl offer the great

[the present time judgment ls based
on wein .esta made- In the laboratory
'omi upon the compressive strength of

ptrength of cohcr?fo beams construct ed

To tlirow more light on tills sub
ject a wear test ls to be made with
the conditions approximating those
actually found on the rond. This test
will include about 115 sections of con
crete wearing surface, each eecllon
being of n different quality of con-,
crete, the qualities being varied by
virtue of the different aggregates used,
different proportions In tho mixture
and amount of mixing water. These
sections ure to bo constructed on a
circular runway about 050 feet In cir
cumference, tho runway being 4 feet
On tills runway will be operated a
epeclally constructed car with two
truck wheels equipped with solid
rubber tires and loaded to represout
a truck. Tho cor will be guided by
email railroad rails to hold lt In posi
tion, the power bolng applied by means
of an electric motor to tho rear wheoh
This apparatus will bo operated around
the circular runway at a speed of
probably 20 miles un hour. The tost
will Involve tho use of truck wheels
equipped with different kinds of tires
and will Include the use of non-skid
chains. A steel-tired wheel will,
probably also be used to get the effect
of an accelerated wear test.
Tho object of this experiment ls to
determine the relative wear of tho

In n rather elaborate series of esg?
porlmonts, tho bureau has studied Im
pact of trucks on roads, and has de
termined approximately the magnitude
of Impact force undor different truck
and road conditions. The effect o?
such impact on concrete pavement*
and sovorol typos of road on concrete
baso was studied and reported on last
year. v This series of experiments is
to be continued and enlarged. Over
120 road sections or slabs have been
constructed in duplicate series. Ono ?
series is on ft carefully drained dry j
subgrade; tho other serlos ls on the 1
same kind of snbgrado except that it !
ls kept wet and as nearly saturated
as possible by means of au underlying
druin tile and side ditches filled with
Tho testing of these slabs will be
gin some time during the month of
May and will be by means of a new
impact machino uow being constructed
which simulates tho action of liie rear
wheel of a truck. On this machine
may be mountod truck wheels (of differ
ent sizes and weights carrying differ
ent kinds of truck tires. This ap
paratus may bo so operated as to re
produce the different loading and
equipment conditions of a large variety
of trucks. The slabs will be hammered
by means of this machino In the cen tor,
on the corners, and on the sides so
as to obtain the relative strength un
der th ese different conditions.
Subsoil Investigations are being con
thorned for the purpose of studying and j
Investigating relative stability, mots
turo condition, and supporting value.
Diff?rent methods of determining tho
holding value of soils aro also hoing
Studied, thal lc, ns to whether small j
or large mens should be used in de
termining tito iilnthra bearing value,
Tho warping oi?oet of temperature
and moisture conditions on concrete
pavements ls also bel?g Investigated. |
Temperatures and movement aro being ,
recorded graphically on continuous
charts. In addition to these tempera- |
turo and movemont measurements the |
pressures on tho subgrado under tho
concrete slab aro obtained by means
of soil pressure cells. This Investiga- i
tlon will give some definite Information 1
concerning the support offered by sub
grades to rigid concrete roads. Tills
Investigation has beeb under way for
some time and will continue probably
for a year or more.
Tho transmission of loads through j
different types of pavements to the
subgrado ls being Investigated by i
moons of soil pressure colls placed on i
tho subgrado undor tho pavements.
This test will also serve to show the '
relative support offered to brick and (
other types of block pavement by con
crete bases and broken stono bases.
This Investigation lins been under way
for about one year and will continue
for some time to como.
A largo number of prominent engl?
noers and others Interested In road
work have visited tho Arlington Ex
perimental station to witness the prep
aration and conduct of these experi
ments. It ls Intended to have all these
projects In full operation by the mid
dle of Juno. Visitors aro always wel
come; and thoso In chnrgo of the work
aro always glad to give any informa

look around us.
And thus ended (ho fiftieth re
union of Orr's Rifles. May the sur
vivors live to seo many more, and
may each ono bo better than the last!
' v Resolutions.
The following resolutions were
adopted by tho association:
. Resolved, That the thanks of the
survivors of Orr's Regimeut and Con
federate Veterans be extendotl to tho
World War Veterans, tho U. D. C.
Chapter and the citizens of Walhalla
for the kind and generous hospitality
shown us, and for making this ono
of tho happiest and best days of our
lives, and we bespeak for all a long
life of prosperity and a glorious im
the following preamble and resolu
tion wore adopted:
Whereas, the last Legislature of
South Carolina reduced the pension
fund of tho State from six hundred
thousand to fivo hundred thousand
dollars, thereby making tho amount
approximately about fifty-flvo dollars
apiece for each old veteran and vet
eran's widow in tho Stato; a>ud
Whereas, most of the old soldiers
have alroady passed tho age of 80
years, and a majority of thom are so
infirmed from ago that they aro in
capacitated from manual labor, and
a majority of them are poor men and
have very littlo of this world's goods:
to sustain life, and if it were not foi
children and grandchildren the>
would have to go to the poor houses:
Now, therefore, bo it
Resolved, by tho survivors of Orr's
Rifles and other old soldiers, and
all other soldiers of the Spanish
American and the World War, Thai
we consider that a great injustice
has been dono the old survivors ol
the "?Lost Cause" by this unjust ac
of the South Carolina Legislature li
reducing the meagre sum that tin
State had been giving as a pension
Resolved, That we, the old soldier
and survivors in all the wars, thinl
that all the old soldiers and survivor
ought to have at least one hundrei
dollars por year. We do not consido
this too much in view of the fae
that tho prosperity and wealth o
South Carolina is due to the han
labor ami trials Ot the old soldier
hi making South Carolina what sh
is to-day; and further, lil i vow of th
tact that lt will.only be a few year
until they will all bo gouu.
Resolved 3d, That we horeb
pledge ourselves as soldiers that w
will not vote for any candidato fo
Governor, or the State Sonate, o
House of Representatives, who is nc
in favor of giving tho old soldiers r
least ono hundred dollars a year, n
wo are satisfied that South Carolin
is as able as Georgia and North Cai
ollna, who give their old soldiors on
hundred and fifty dollars a year, an
Louisiana throe hundrod and sixt:
Pvo dollars a year.
Resolved 4th, That we carncstl
call upon tho lady voters of the Stat
who have dono so much for the ol
soldiors to mako their lost days o
earth happy, lo aid us in cloding

prosed himself as highly pleased
with the operation of co-operative
markots in tho Palmetto State. When
atskod his opinion of the situation in
South Carolina Mr. Norwood said:
"Wc want to call your attention
to prices of tobacco to-day as com
pared with prices of a year ago.
Good, steady prices can be maintain
ed, and higher prices will bo paid
for largo, well graded lots as only the
association has to offer. The Tobacco
Growers' Co-operative Association
is fortified with the logally enforce
able contracts of Its members, and
knows how and will deal with any
ono who aids In the violation of such
contracts. The association is on the
firing line to-day and expects full
loyalty of its members."
