Road Material Reduced Fromj*
10 to 35 Cents to Three a
Cents Per Cubic Yard h
Gravel, which once cost the state | 1
highway commission from 10 to 35
cents, is now being obtained at less t
than three cents a cubic yard, accord-
ing to a survey made by J. N. Roh- i
crty, research engineer for the high
way department. a
The savings effected by outright t
purchase of gravel pits by the com- r
mission is a sum almost sufficient to
pay the cost of operation for the de- g
partment, Roherty said.
Previous to 1930. gravel used for .
road surfacing was purchased from I
the land owners on a cubic yard basis, [
the price usually varying from 10 to
35 cents, according to Roherty.
Purchased In 1930
During 1930, he said, the highway
commission decided to purchase gravel
pits outright under the authority giv
en it by law in 1927. Purchase has
been made of some pits where the
price amounted to less than one cent
a cubic yard for the total material in
the pit. while the average for the en- |i
tire state is slightly under three cents
a cubic yard.
Before the commission began pui
chasing gravel pits, high prices were ,
paid for gravel in commercial pits,
Sear the larger cities where there was,
a good market for gravel. r
•‘As North Dakota must rely chieflj ; v
cm gravel surfaced roads for many j
rears to come, the securing of a sup- c
p!v of gravel at this time will be of fl
greater and greater value as time goes t
on,” Roherty said. “In localities where „
gravel is scarce, it will not be econom
-55 to use up every bit of gravel to
be found, for then we would be forced
to ship in gravel at great expense. It j
will be better to conserve gravel as it {
becomes scarce, by means of some i f
expensive type of bituminous binder {
such as oil, tar, or asphalt. t
Wear Is Reduced t
“There is little, if any, wear on grav- *
el that is bound together by oil. as
phalt or tar. The amount of gravel
that wears out and blows away in a
year on an untreated gravel road is a
large item in maintenance costs. The
amount varies according to the qual
ity of the gravel, the amount of traf
lie. the tvpc °f S °M weather.
••As a conservative estimate we can
figure that one-half yard of gravel is
lost on each mile each year for each
vehicle per day of traffic. In other
words, if there is an average daily
traffic of 500 vehicles per day there
will be 250 cubic yards of gravel lost
on each mile each year. For an av
erage traffic of 300 vehicles per day
the loss on each mile each year would 1
be at least 150 cubic yards. For light <
traffic the loss is higher per vehicle as <
wind and rain and perhaps other
factors are at w ? ork to some extent .
even though traffic is light."

M’Donald Cautions Against
Crowing Too Proud Over
Election Results
London, Oct. 29.— (IP)— The British
national government was back at
work Thursday under the direction of
Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald,
cautioning humility over the results
of the election and addressing itself
to the sober task of executing the
“doctor's mandate” it, asked and re
ceived from the people.
Backed by an unprecedented ma
jority of more than 500 of the 615
seats of the house of commons, ttte
prime minister began a series of con
ferences with King George and with
his cabinet to lay the groundwork for
the rehabilitation program to be pre
sented to parliament early next
The British press, adding its voice
to that of MacDonald and Stanley
Baldwin. Conservative leader, cau
tioned the country to remember the
victory was a triumph of the nation
al government and not of .any party,
in spite of the fact the Conservatives
will occupy five-sixths of the scats in
the new parliament. A demand for a
full-blooded policy is expected to be
the first trouble encountered by
MacDonald. He is pledged not to im
pose protection until it has been fully
investigated and scentific legislation
has been prepared.
Other measures expected to make
up a principal part of the new gov
ernment’s program are stabilization
of the pound, negotiations for a re
view, of World war debts and correct
ing the British adverse trade balance.
Besides his conference with the
king, the prime minister was to pre
side over the cabinet meeting which
is the first of a series of meetings to
be held during the next few days to
draft the speech which King George
will read from the throne when the
new parliament is opened with full
state ceremonial on Nov. 10.
The reconsruction of the cabinet
will occupy much of MacDonald’s
time between now and then. Al
though the appointments are in his
own hands many consultations will
be necessary. The general belief is
that the abbreviated emergency cab
inet, formed in August, will be con
siderably enlarged.
The scattering remnant of the la
bor party which will occupy a little
group of opposition benches in a cor
ner of the parliament chamber, also
is faced with the task of finding a

Hoover Committee Says Im
provement Delayed By Lack
of Confidence
Washington, Oct. 29. — (JP) —Sharply
criticising some classes of Americans
for their fear of financial loss, the
planning committee of President
Hoover's unemployment relief organ
ization has outlined a ten-point, pro
gram to better the domestic situation.
The committee declares that while
it may be true normal good business
must await removal of adverse world
conditions, “it is certain we delay
recovery by passively accepting our
relation to the international situa
tion and in failing to make a con
certed determined effort to correct
domestic conditions.”
Headed by Harry A. Wheeler of
Chicago, it presented the program to
Chairman Gifford late Wednesday.
Tiie report urges resumption of
normal buying by persons who have
jobs and rebukes those uneasy in
dividuals who hide away money
which might be mixing freely in
trade channels.
Its findings are commended to the
country by Gifford as requiring “im
mediate and thoughtful consideration
of all individuals and organizations
to the end that so far as possible
they may be promptly translated in
to action.”
He cites the committee as an an
swer to the insistent demand for
appointment of an economic council
to determine what could be done to
improve business. •
‘White Collar' Help
Where husbands arc making a
living, the committee recommends
that employment of wives be looked
into. It also urges immediate action
to give needy “white collar” workers
part time employment, at least.
The Wheeler report completes the
third major phase of the Gifford or
ganization. Previous report dealt
with mobilization of community re
lief funds and coordination of region
al plans for administering aid.
The program in the Wheeler report
“United national action to encour
age every American citizen now em
ployed to resume normal buying—to
use available income to purchase
goods normally needed and in the re
placement of which labor is employed
—is a condition precedent to any
hopeful program to constructively in
crease employment; continued and
further restriction of consumption of
goods and of expenditures ’ for im
provements and replacements inevit
ably will offset any and every effort
for emergency relief.
“Public confidence in our financial
and credit structures must be reestab
lished. Withdrawal of money from
circulation for hoarding seriously re
stricts and operates to delay business
recovery. The creation of the na-
I tional credit corporation and such
further agences, either public or pri
vate. heretofore suggested by the
president to insure further and more
certain fluidity of banking resources,
will bring ready response in increased
activity in productive and distributive
forces of the country.
Banks Should Be Liberal
“In addition to expansion of basic
credit facilities, including those al
ready instituted by the president,
bankers of the United States may
make their effective contribution to
the national program for resumed
normal activities through assuming
as liberal and encouraging an attitude
as possible toward the credit require
ments of their average customer.
“The spreading of available work in
industrall commercial, and profes
sional enterprises still is the most
fruitful field for immediate unem
ployment relief.
“The committee urges that nothing
be omitted to make immediately
available new additional employment
represented by public work already
authorized and appropriated for. but
delayed or blocked by removable legal
obstacles and supervisory red tape.
“As a special emergency measure
for this winter, a survey should be
made of the possibility for transfer of

Statement Is Made in Reply to
Numerous Queries Received
By Commissioner
Regulations covering the trapping
of beaver were explained in a state
ment issued Thursday by Burnic
Maurek, state game and fish com
The statement, designed to reply to
numerous inquiries received by the
game and fish department, points
out that there is no open season on
beaver provided by law.
The law provides, however, that if
beaver become so numerous in any
locality that, in the judgment of the
game and fish commissioner a lim
ited number may be taken without
unduly depleting their numbers, or if
they are causing substantial damage
to public or private property, the
commissioner may issue to land own
ers or to their authorized agents li
censes to take beaver on the prem
“Persons desiring to trap beaver
should write to the game and fish
department in Bismarck for the
proper application blank for this pur
pose," Maurek said.
“In filling out this blank, informa
tion must be given as to the name
and address of the applicant, his de
scription, the legal description of the
property on which the applicant de
sires to trap, the number of beaver
which he expects to take, and in all
cases the applications must be signed
by the owner of the land on which
the beaver are located. If the per
son desiring to take beaver on such
land is not the owner of the land, he
must be named in the application as
the agent of the land owner. This
application should be forwarded to
the game and fish commissioner, ac
companied by a postal or express or
