IAVID J. AUGUST mma I f: i! Farmers living in the benefit district of the East Sixth road filled the room occupied by the county commissioners this morning, demanding a careful in spection of that portion of the id already hard -surfaced. Discovery by United States inspec tors that in two- places on the road .where the concrete was supposed to be eight inches thick it is only two inches thick, together with charges by farm ers that certain of the inspectors on the road didn't spend much time on the job, called for the appearance of farmers at the court house today. These men who are aiding In 'the payment of $33,000 a mile for the con struction of a hard surfaced road be tween Topeka and Douglas county wanted some assurance that the re mainder of the road would come up to plans and Specifications of the contrac tors. . It was stated at the court house to day that the part of the road which has been pave.d must be carefully in spected following the defects dis covered by a federal investigator.

Grand Opera House to .how much of the road will contain a less amount of cement than that called for1 in the specifications is problematical. t.. .Engineer leaves County. The caH by the farmers revealed that X. W". Xaddell, resident engineer, who has been looking after the countyCs end of the construction, has tender ed his resignation" and has gone to Wichita. , . -Members of the board of county commissi oners denied that Liddell's work was- unsatisfactory and declared that LlddeLl had gone to Wichita to accept a better position. "However," said one : member of the board, . "Laddel! didn't get along with the contractors very well." It was R. H. Pinart the new resT dent engineer, who discovered the first defects in the road, according to Henry W. McAfiee, a merpber of the board. It was stated that so far the 2-inch layer of cement existed In only 100 feet of the hard surfaced road. A. A-'Kogers another member of he board, assured the farmers that (arrangements had been made so that would ''inspect" and that no more de fective" paving would be done-. Among the farmers living in the -benefit district who. called to protest today- were: F. H. Myers K. Linge. John -feck'. Robert Armstrong and Bert Griswold. ADJUTANT BERGEN RESIGNS Head of l ocal American ' lieglon to Ent?r Insurance Business. Adjutant John Bergen of Capital Post No. 1 of the American Legion, announced today that he ould tender his resignation, effective May 10, at a meeting of the legion tonight. Ber gen, who has ben an officer In -the (local post since July, 1919, will engage I In insurance business here, he said to liiiv. iHe was elected adjutant of the post when it was organized and served in that capacity until September of last year whe"n he was elected com mander. In December. .1919, the le gion felt the need of a paid adjutant who would devote all of his time to lie. work and prevailed upon Bergen to take.th job, which he has heM to Ldate. it is probable, according to Bergen, that the office of paid adjutant -will be discontinued, due to lack or funds, and that his duties will be taken over by a part-time adjutant and the .exe cutive committee of the post. Plans for a Legion Memorial Day program will be discussed at the meet ing tonight and Governor Allen's Aniericajiized May Day proclamation will be read and discussed. The legion is expected to pass resolutions support ing the governor in his loyalty cam paign, but it is doubtful, according to Bergen, - if any demonstration can. be staged on such 'short notice. C.

Ass' Departments to Reduce Orders STer Cent. Imri Zumwalt, ' state printer, today launched a campaign to discourage useless printing. In an effort to cut ipnnting orders by state departments "n per cent, tie is sending let ters to all institutions and depart ment a heads, asking for voluntarv re ductions in orders. Appropriations by the 1919 legislature are declared by Zumwalt to be insufficient to meet material bilts and labor expense un less the plant output is curtailed. Since -the amtreorintinn wr it. lowed, ordinary book paper costs have auvaneeu nearly loo per cent, the let ter recites. The appropriations wre based on prices prevailing in fanuary, 1919. . , Big Jump In Wages. One big trouble iust now is the wac-4 jiouichi. a year ago tne wage scale for printers was $23 a' week. It is now $34 and will sro to a wir July 1. That means an increase of B6.a per. cent in a little more than a year. x , - , Zumwalt's request is for a volun tary reduction in printing orders. If his request does not mcst resnnnne the matter will he xhecked up to the printing council ana orders are ex pected to be issued limiting supplies. Otherwise,- there is everv DrosDeet of a deficit' in the state printing plant 1UI1U. The letter says, in part: 'It is nbsolutely vital vthat all depart ments and institutions shoulrl rauk-allv curtail tnetr .leninnrts for printing. It U my hone that you will ilo the cutting vnjir selves bo that it may be done lnlelligVuKv and the less important items cut in favor of the more essential. However, unless the departments and institutions themselves materially reduce their demands for print ing, the state printer win be cnmpelled to take the responsibility upon his own shoulders.'
