KELLER GIVES COUNTY REPORT William Smith and Miss Murray Are in Charge.of Projects OSAGE--Sixty-four persons are now employed on seven W or Its Progress administration projects in Mitchell county, according to a report released Friday by George J. Keller, state WPA administrator. In discussing the present WPA program in Mitchell c o u n t y , Keller revealed that two construction 'projects and five non- construction projects are providing work relief for 60 local residents who would otherwise be dependent on. the county for their subsistence. Four so-called non- relief persons are employed in supervisory capacities on the projects. With the WPA program now in existence for over three and a half years, records in Keller's office show that the federal government has spent a total of $101,025 on all Mitchell county work while the sponsors of the various projects, have contributed a total of $88,586 to bring the grand total up to $189,611. Actively in charge of the construction work in Mitchell county is William H. Smith, WPA's area engineer, whose of/ices are in New Hampton. Miss Lucille Murray, field supervisor stationed at Davenport, is in charge of the non-construction projects which are administered by the women's and professional division of the WPA. . . County Road Work The larger of the two construction projects is the county-sponsored farm-to-rharket road im- proveijient program. Thirty-nine men, two of whom are from the non-relief rolls, are employed on this project. . Drafted on a county-wide basis to succeed nine other similar projects, most of which were restricted to limited areas in the county, this present program was placed in operation ; during October, 1938.. The approved plans for the project make possible the quarrying, crushing and hauling of limestone and the hauling and spreading of gravel, filling washouts on shoulders on new grades, clearing and grubbing ,pf roads preparatory to grading and other pertinent work. Previous "Road Work The construction program in Mitchell county is similar to that in many other counties with most of the expenditures being made on secondary road improvements. Much has been accomplished in Mitchell county because of the cooperation between county officials and the Works Progress administration. Keller's report shows that up to Jan. 15, 1939, there had been 33 miles of secondary roads surfaced by WPA laborers while re.-surfacing has been done on approximately 15 miles. Forty-eight miles of new grades have been thrown up and clearing and grubbing operations were carried out on 128 miles. Stockpiled for future use is 4,752 cubic yards of crushed rock.
