Figures Show Magnitude of
Actirity of State Highway
' The scope and magnitude of the
work of the Oregon state highway
commission is shown in a report that
was issued yesterday by State High
way Engineer Nunn for the year end
ing November 30. A summary of
the activities of the highway depart
ment of the year shows a total ex
penditure of 15 1 1,729.66. '
This figure embraces these Items:
Estimated cost of construction Job,
$2,367,300; expended on construc
tion Job In construction 'work,
1475,417.70; expended in englneer
. iner. $3.S1.86. ;
The report estimates a cost of $7,
930,160 for highway world Under
construction, bridges.- applied for,
survey requested, road equipment
required and admlnlst? atlon ; ex

Many Job Under Wy.
Thirty-two Jobs, representing an
expenditure of $2,367,300, are actu
ally under i way. according- to Mr.
Nunn. He roakea the further state
ment that the enisneerlne oot to
date on this work has been l.-i per
cent of the estimated cost.
'VVe feel that on account of the
large amount of preliminary investi
gation and! surveys, both under the
previous administration and under
our administration, this oost Is very
fair, and that the work will be com
pleted under a tot low percentage
of the general overhead and engi
neering cost," says air. iMunn.
"Our bridge department has made
an. especially fine showing, as an ex
amination of the tabulated repoit
will show; and tne large nunwr
counties which have requested such
design and supervision show confi
dence in that department .which s
highly j.leaslng to our organization.
AVli.de Flacal Year Included
"It is to be remembered that the
summary of the cost in this report
includes .the entire fiscal year for
the state highway department, in
cluding the previous administration s
work up until the time of the present
organization. It also Includes con
siderable ' county work handled by
the previous administration but
which has since been charged against
the present administration.
"The unusual conditions caused by
the war have made it exceedingly
hard to maintain engineering and
construction organlxatlons, and espe
cially 1 this true where the state
has had work In 'outlying districts.
We believe, however, that, all things
considered, actual construction work
la the state shows a very uniform
and comparatively low cost, and the
present price of labor has not ad
vanced the eost of the work as much
as was expected last year."

As much confusion seemed to x

consumers as to just what the new
bread laws of the government moan,
or do not mean, a careful investiga

bakers, and" consumers as to their
understanding; of the rulen.
A. W. Scbrunkhe dealer on Com

not know exactcly whether he could
sell "victory" bread on iWedneday.
and that some of the dealeres were
like himesif, while others claimed It
was all "wheatless days," under the
new-laws now in effect..
Jhe Midget Market people, were of
opinion that "victory" .bread was
made for the purpose of meeting
the requirements of Uncle Sam In
every respect, and that realljt la the
