Omaha, Secretary Frank M. Coffey
announced here today. From 150 to
200 delegates will be present.
"Under the code, the broad char

"The female labor law, which or
iginally applied to cities over 5,000,
is now applicable only in Lincoln

was emasculated by the code, and

RIVER WORK IN
Retard Plan Proves Most Effective
Contracts Made with Govern
ment for Riparian Work
The work of the Woods Brothers'
Construction company, of Lincoln,
has brought the firm , more into the
national limelight than any other
venture made by a Nebraska con
cern, except possibly the potash in
dustry that flourished in western
Nebraska during the war, only to
pass into obscurity with the signing
of the- armistice.
The Standard Current Retary sys
tem of river bank protection, as orig
inated and developed by the Woods
Brothers, has proved the most satis
factory method yet employed for the
protection of riparian property.
This type of construction which
has been used quite extensively along
the banks of the Big Muddy in this
vicinity, consists of trees cabled to
gether and placed in the stream and
attached to cable leading from dead
timber, also attached to cables to
which are attached the Bignell-Jones
pile, sunk by Jetting until the top of
the pile is from 15 to 40 feet below
the bed of the stream.
Retards built up in units of 20 to
35 trees per unit, extend from the
bed of the stream at the channelward
end to the height of the natural
bank at the landward end.
Retards Stream's Progress
This type of construction permits
the water to flow through the struc
ture, gradually impeding the veloc
ity adjacent to the previously erod
ing bank and deflects the current
channelward past the end of the re
tard. A stretch of dead water then
exists next to the - bank wherein
sand, gravel and sediment carried by
the current is deposited; in fact the
same force of nature which former
ly eroded the bank is controlled to
the extent that it replaces material
in the very place from where it was
washing it away.
The success of this type of cur
rent retard is mainly due to its ab
solute anchorage, particularly its an
chorage to the Bignell-Jones pile.
Standard Current Retards are the
practical application of the principle
of sedimentation to the replacement.
