A silver anniversary .Buick
eouCparty dfspatchedto the Lit
tle Sar sector ' recently ' learned
from Superinteaaeat Albertson
that there were then 63 men at
work on the northern end of this
important new road project, fif
teen men were scheduled to ar-
rire within a few days and ulti
mately the camp will hare a pop
ulation of approximately 100. A
aim liar group of coavict-worknien
is employed at the southern end of
Albertson in detailing progress
of the road construction-thus far
to the Buick party took the pre
caution to explain that visitors, in
th- ordinary sense of the term, are
distinctly not welcome at the con
rlct settlement not because of
any danger, but. in the Interest of
avoiding embarassment to the
workers and consequent breaking
down of morale.
One cut. involving: the removal
of 25.000 cvubic yards of earth,
has already been excavated, with
the . removed soil being used to
bridge a gorge separating the cut
from the next ridge. The work
has proceeded about one mile in
each direction from the Little Sur,
near the mouth of which the pris
on camp has been established. Al
bertjon estimates that his outfit
.can move about 30,000 cubic
fards a month and thr.t the ffwxs
- sol 'job -will average about! ljjcjo
yard of excavation to the linear
mile, although this will run as
high as 120,000 yards for some
miles. Two bridges must be built.
