Stmday, Tnne t, 1!M7 THE BROWNSVIULE HERALD 23 Some Rough Roads Get The Razzberry RICHMOND, Va.--(/P)--Bu-u-u- r-r-r-rp! It's the "razzberry" for contractors you hear folks. The burp-buzz sound comes from a gadget known as a "roller straight eQige" perfected by T. W. Loftis, instrument maker for the Virginia State Plighwuy Department. It is rolled over a now section of pavement and if there is a deviation in smoothness' of more than one-eighth of an inch in ten feel it rolls forth the "razzberry" sound. Synthetic rubber is not a true synthetic because it is not a chemical twin of the nntural product.
