A new topographic may of the
area known as the Salem quadran

' the United States geological survey,

eson. . -
Jhl9 map represents by" far the
cost cam plete surveyever" made of
this section of the state, it shows
: so clearly every physical feature of
' the quadrangle that the character
of any part of It, as well as the
; shapes of the hills and "valleys, can
be seen at a glance, and the altitude

sea. The traveler walkine along the

lines will go neither up hill nor down
Jiill but on a level. That such a map
Is'of prime value to the engineer who

ley rute. a highway, a drainage or
Irrigation system goes without say
ing, but It Lb also of great value to
- the average citizen. Farmers and
tutomobilists, for instance,, buy
' tl&usands of the maps. In addition
to the land and water features, the
saap shows, in "black, all the works

' The topographic mapping done by
the geological survey reprenents the

marks, showing exact altitudes, were
also set at numerous points In the
quadrangle. The location of these
marks is indicated accurately on the
map, and they can be used for all
time as the basis for any further sur
veys desired. Map making of this
sort is a very different undertaking
from that of constructing the aver
age map at a desk generally a mat
ter of mere approximation and com
pilation. Everything on the geolo
gical survey topographic sheet is ex
act and true to nature.
This sheet forms but one small
section of the great topographic, at

geological survey is making an!

the most detailed atlas in the world.

by an enormous amount of office

The cost to the government of
these quadrangle surveys, for both
field and office work, ranges' from
$3,500 to $8,000 each; but the map-?
