Minnesota ranks with the foremost
rtates an regards the possibilities for
increasing the production at her soil
by tile drainage, Mr. Willard said.
The value Of under drainage as an in
vestment, he said, has been firmly
established by results which have been
accomplished In the past.
Much'of the impetus given the tile
drainage movement Is due to the en
term* of the cemept or concrete tile
into the field and there can be no
doubt but that without the concrete
tile, underground drainage could not
have, made .the substantial progress
that has been the result, Mr. Willard
said. The supply of gravel from
which to select the aggregate for con
crete tile Is abundant and located
within a short distance of nearly every
locality.
"With certain fundamental charac
teristics and properties regarding the
behavior of cement and concrete un
der various conditions of soil and soil
contents fully understood, and with
safeguards thrown about the manu
facture of the product, the use of con
crete tile should be encouraged as a
means of. securing the economical and
permanent drainage of lands," Mr.
Willard sold.
Ttfere are, however, he said, certain
localities within the. state where in
vestigations have.lhAought out 'eotidi-
tions *hich appear to bar cement- tile
from 'oonslderatlbn. These lnvestigd
tions, -,carried on portly by' the' de
partment and tlie Uftlted States de
partment of agriculture seem to have
proven beyond a doubt that where
alkali salts in solution In -the ground
waters occur in- sufficiently great con
centration, the concrete tile cannot be
expected to' withstand 'the action
alkali.,
Dr
A laboratory has been equipped and
an organisation perfected at the agri
cultural experiment station of the uni
versity of Minnesota, where the work
of investigation is carried on jointly by
the experiment station and the state
agriculture.
These departments, Mr. Willard
said, will make investigations with a
view of finding the area where the
destructive concentrations prevail and
to advise land owners where It may
not be safe to use cement tile to make
tests of soil and soil waters submitted
by drainage engineers to examine
into and make tests of the physical
properties of drain tile of all kinds
and to assist and give advice on any
of the subjects pertaining to tile and
tile drainage which may be submitted
by those interested in this work.

Contracts Also Blamed.
Conditions are not alone blamed for
restricting output by the report,
which said that "contractors and
builders and supply dealers affect the
situation to as great a degree indi
rectly by maintenance of hjgh prices,
collusion in bidding and unfair prac
tices.
Haphazard management in planning
and controlling work and lack of
standards in the city often has
doubled the labor, stated the report.
The unions are urged to make their
services more valuable to the em
ployer by developing and'training the
men in their organizations and assist
lng in the development, of standardi
zation of time, method and material.
"Never in the history of the cbun

important that certain fundamental
principles of economics' should b^ ac

overboard the fallacy that restricting
