the submittal of a new REA project

I areas, as well as some of the cost
litst terrain for construction yet on
i countered in Western Montana. A
: recent pre-allotment survey by :
I Verne E. Ashley Engineering ser
! vice of Butte, mapped out a total ;
; of 131 miles of two and three phase !
j line needed to cover this area, i
! Clearing will be required* on 55
1 miles of this right-of-way, much
of it thru heavy timber and rough
country. Since this one feature ;
could raise construction costs to e
prohibitive figure, the Co-op plans |
to do the entire clearing job with (
volunteer labor; and members of ;
the Board of Trustees are now busy j
securing work agreements for six ;
days labor from every member. i
