Aprii SO, 1910, hog cholera killcd 2,
815,004 hogs, valued at $G2,0-12,GS8.16,
in the United States. This is the
lowest loss by numbers for a similar
period in the live-stock history of the
United States, but on account of the
high price of hogs the monctary ioss
wa's heavyf For ex'ahìpleduririg the
year ending March 31, 1913, hogs
numbering G,064,470 and worth $58,
833.G53 died from cholera, while the
next ycar the disease took 6,304,320
hogs worth $67,097,461.
Department experimcnts show that
timeliness in vaccinatine hogs against
cholera is ali important. When ex
posed hogs were vaccinated, while
stili apparcntly . healthy, losses
am.ounted to only 4 per cent, but
when vaccination was deferred until
the animals showed externul signs of
sickness, losses averaged nearly 29
per cent. This shows that the man
who puts off the preventive treatment
until his hogs are sick with cholera
stands only about one chance in seven
of preventing fatai results. It is im
portant, also, to maintain hog yards
and barns in clcan and sanitary con-dilion.
1 To determine the destructive effect
of heavily loadcd auto trucks on
highways and streets, and to mer
the deniand for data on the design of
road surfaces and foundations io
withstand such heavy trattic, a series
of experiments is being conducted by
the Iiureau of Public IJoads, United
States Department of Agricullure, at
the Arlington Experimental Farm to
determine the impact of auto truck?
on roads.
The most striking single elevelop
ment in the highway field in 1918 was
the tremendous increase in motor
truck traffic. Five years ago heavy
motor trucks were few in number
and limited practically entircly to the
paved streets of larger cities. These
vehicles now comprise probably 4 to
5 per cent of the grand total of ali
motor vehicles and are to be found
wherever traffic conditions pernnt
profitable use. Eut very few roads
were designed to carry any largo
volume of this class of trarne. Con
sequently, the cost of adequate
maintenance was increased greatly
during the year. In many places the
damage due to the incessant pound
ing of these fast and heavy vehicles
was so great as to require complete

The snappiest ball game that has
been seen on the Campus for many a
day was played Saturday afternoon
A'ith over 200 fans cheering at cru
ciai moments and St. Johnsbury dc
teated Woodsville 5 to 4. The home
dine had been greatly strengthened
and the infield was never better. Le
land proved a star pitcher and Con
nor not only played his position, but
Irclped in tight places elsewhere and
made some thrilling plays. Umpire
Brown gave splendid satisfaction and
his decisions were exceptionally fair.
One of the notable features of the
4'ame was that many of the batters
made their hitr, on the first ball pit
ched and only two or three times
during the game dici more than three
players get a chance to bat in the
same inning.
Sullivan tried his best to win the
game in the seventh inning by strik
ing out St. J.ohnsbury's heaviest hit
ters and in the ninth Larty reached
homo on a three base hit. This great
ly cheered the Woodsville fans, but
with two men out the game ended
when Woodsvill's next batter
sti-uck out. The hitting was heavy
and the e irrora were few on both
sides and everybody got their money s,
worth at the game. The summary:

Federai aie business in the Bureau
of Public Roads of the United States
Department of Agriculturc. , States
in ali sections of the country are fi!
ing their projeets and receiving al
lotments. The road building e.va is
in full swing, and it would seem
that the end is not yet. Ali Indi
cations points to greatcr records in
the months immediately to corno.
Based on complete reports from 4-1
nf the States cash exnenditures on
the rural roads and bridges of th
United States for the calendar year
1918 amounted to $280,098,193. To
this should be added the value of
statute and convict labor, which can
not be fixed with any great degree oì'
accuracy but probably amounted to
not less than $14,000,000, thus mak
ing the grand total expenditurcs for
the vear $300,000,000. This total is
made up of the actual expenditures
for such items as labor, materials,
supervisori and aoministraiion cu
rectly connected with the construc-
tion, improvement, and upkeep of
public roads and bridges outside the
limits of incorporated towns and ci
ties, and does not include any item.
for sinking fund payments or re-
demption and interest on road and
bridge bonds.
The year 1918 offered an unpreceJ
dented condilion in practically ali
lines of highway work. There was
not only a tremendous increase and
expansion in the aomunt of heavy
truck traffic on public roads and.an
unprecedented shortage in legare to
road materials, labor, and ready
funds, but also a decided increase in
maintenance work, which was, how
ever, partially offset by a decrease in
the amount of new construction.
