United States Department of apiculture, at Washington, October 1L Decided opposition was express gd to the proposal to adandon the qserantlne 0 f infested areas and wage the campaign on a regional basis. After the conclusion of the hear ting » resolution was adopted by the state representatives attending the hearing authorizing the commissioner of agriculture, Gilbert, of Massachu setts, to appoint a committee of five members representing the infested areas to draw up recommendations and present them to Secretary of ag ricnlture Wallace. It was also voted as being the sense of the delegates that the Federal Government should appropriate $275,000 for conducting the work against the borer in the various states affected. Assurances were given by delegatee from most of the states that government money spent in their states would be match ed by an equal amount^ of state funds for the work. * The board indicted that it was la substantial greement on the plan to continue the quarantine .control Of the Suropean corn borer along the pre sent lines, the quarantine to be ex tended to include the new areas of in festation; and that It would recom jneSd such action to Secretary Wal lace, together with the recommend dation that congress - be asked for ftmds adequate to administer such quarantine. The experts of the bureau of Entomology Indicated that such quarantine control of aU known areas of Infestation could probably he ade quately taken care of on an appro priation of $275,000, the same amount Cypress Lumber Price List 1x4, 1x6, 1x8 2x4, 2x6, 2x8 4x4, and 4x6 1x10 and 2x10 1x12 and 2x12 1x4, 1x6, 1x8 2x4, 2x6, 2x8 3x4, 4x4, 4x8 1x10 and 2x10 1x12 and 2x12 1x4, 1x6, 1x8 2x4, 2x6, 2x8 3x4, 4x4, 4x6 1x10 and 2x10 1x12 and 2x12 *3x6 to 8x8 •8x10 to 12x12 1-2 x 6 No. 2 Cypress Creole weather boards, rgh 1-2 x 6 No. 1 Gpreee Creole weather boards rgh 1-2 x 8 "D" Cypresa Bevel 8 id inf dressed 1-2x6 "C" Cypress Bevel Siding dratsad 1-2 x 6 "B" Cypress Bevel Siding dressed 1-2 x 6 "A" Cypress Bevel Siding dressed 1x4, 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, "C" Cypress Finish 848 1x12 "C" Cypress Finish 848 1x4 1x6, 1x8, tx10 "B" Cypress Finish 848 1x12 "B" Cypress Finish 848 ^ 1x4, 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, "A" Cypress Finish , * 1x12 "A" Cypress Finish 848 Pecky Cyprew pe r m $ 17.00 pecky eyprew per m 17.00 pecky cypre** pecky cypre** per m per m 17.00 17.00 pecky cypres* per m 21.00 No. 2 Cypre«* per m 27.00 No. 2 Cypre** per m 28.00 No. 2 Cypre»* per m 28.00 No. 2 Cypre** per m 28.00 No. 2 Cypre** per m SSjOO No. 1 Cypre«« per m 37.00 No. 1 Cypre»* per m 38.00 No. 1 Cypre** per m 38 M No. 1 Cypre** per m 88J00 No. 1 Cypres* per m 43.00 No. 1 Cypre«« per m 40.00 No. 1 Cypre** per m 46.00 100.00 tmoo 116.00 Random Clipper shgra 6" Cipper Shga 4" Economy 8Hga 6" Economy Shgs 3" Prime Shgs 4" Prim* Cypress Shgs 5" Prims Cypress Shgs 3" Best Cyp>-ess Shgs 4" Best Cypress 8hgs 8" Best Cypress Shgs 3" 4 ft No. 1 Cypress Pickets rough 3" 4 ft No. 1 Cypress Pickets rough and headed 3" 4 ft No. 1 Cypress Pickets dreseed and headed $15.00 and $15.00 ard 30.00 2BA0 20.00 I j ■ 1x4 Hardwood Sheathing ** 2x4 and 2x6 Hardwood Framing . , ._. ,, _„j on . width Gam which Is suitable for We have a large stock bf V random wibwi wam 1#j0Q Bam Fooors, etc., @ ..............................

A NEW _ 3. Co-t W .»-j ALASKA BASE MAP COMPLETED The U vey of the department of commerce reports the completion of a new out line map of Alaska on the Lambert conformal conic projection, scale 1-6,060,000; deminsions 17x26 1-2 in., price 25 cents. The map extends from the Artie oceans in the north to the state of Washington in the south, and Includes all of the Aleutian Islands and a ©art of* Eastern Siberia. Ft is intended merely as a base map t^ which may be added any kind of special informa tion that may be desired. For this reason, only national 'boundaries, the adjacent Canadian provinces, and the names of a few of the important ' towns are given. The shoreline la complied from the most recent Coast and Geodetic survey charts and in reslpect to southeast Alaska and west ward to Kodiak Island, the coastline is better represented than heretofore The (accumulation of the yearly sur veys in the extensive and largely un -sujyeyed waters of Alaska as here embodied, presents a delineation of the coastline in a more really true shape than heretofore and in this respect the map is more reliable than other existing maps of similar scale. In addition to ths feature, the em ployment of a more suitable system Of map projection adds to the general accuracy. Ox account of the predom inating east and west extent of Alas ka, the Lambert conformal conic pro jection with two • standerd parallels offers advantages over other projec tions formerly used in mapping this region. This is the system which _______ came to prominent notice during the j world war and was employed by the allied forces in their military opera rations in France. The parallels employed as stan dards are the latitudes 55 degrees and 65 degrees, and along these parallels the scale is true. Between these para Ilels the scale becomes too small by less than fonr tenths of one per cent, which amount is insignificant. At Dixon entrance in Southeast Alaska, the formeT general chart of Alaska on a polyconic projection whs in error by aft..much as ten per cent, due to' a system of projection which was unsuited to Ithe shape of the area in volved. Bn the net base map, the pro jection error in this locality is en tirely eliminated. The maximum er ror of scale of the Lambert projec tion Is only 1 3-4 per cent. This is in the latitude of Pt. Barrow in the north where the scale is too large by j this amount The same amount of, error appears in latitude 48 but this ts considerably south of Alaska .which is thd'subect of the map. The poly- i conic projection had the effect of [ exaggerating areas in the most tm I portant part of Alaska whereas in the j j Lambert projection the maximum ! ■ stale error is placed in the least tm- j ; portant part of Alaska, and in amount ( is only one-sixth as Irge as in tbe polyconic projection. | par the measurement of distances and areas within the extent of the map, an accuracy Is thus obtained that is well within the limits of the draftsmanship, paper distortion, and our knowledge of ths region as a whole. The selection of a suitable projec lion with a conformal grid system of one degree unite, makes the new out line map a convenient base for the addition of special and useful informa tlon. The inclusion of the northwest part of the state of Washington serves as a connecting link with a ! similar Lambert conformal base of ! the United States whk* has already been published on the same scale, WAR RUINED CITY IS RESTORED ON AMERICANS PLANS Princeton University Men Outline Work to Be Done ip Soissons Soissons, France, Oct 23.—The work of the Princeton University reconstruction unit has been complet- j ed and the city of Soissons, where the j work was done, has decorated the young American architects with medals, cast particularly to com memorte the spirit which moved them to volunteer their services to help France in the arduous task of reconstruction.

The greatest problem which con fronts France today, in her recon struction and rehabilitation program, is the proper provision for the gen eration which must grow up in the midst of the ruins. Thus in "the city of Baissons alone, four schools have been laid eut providing for 500 to 600 pupils in each school.
