Latest ntitlictitio luformntion gather

shipbuilding business at Pot Hand, aud

With conltact1 already let and cor
tain to bo placed hi the near future, it
is staled by the shipbuilders that from
20,000 to SS.oOu men should bo employ
ed by the close of this year, or early
next year. Tho work is on hand to
give this employment and the demand
for chips is growing greater every day.
Tholdevelopmcut of an Industry of
this magnitude so suddonly has result
ed in drawing practically all of the
available men within immediate reach,
and already tho shipbuilders of the
state are urging laborers from all parts
of the West to talte positions in their
Appeals arc coming from national
officials and all tho leading business
men of the East for all seaboard states
to concentrate their supreme energies
upon the program of building ships.
This is declared to be the greatest duty
conjbnting the nation today and on
evcrjAand it is admitted frankly, de
spite the optimistio statements made
of the position of the allied forces, that
unless ships are built by America at a
pace absolutety beyond the present
program the effectiveness of the United
States in tho European War will be
largely reduced. Germany is counting
implicitly upon destroying more ships
than are built to provont America
from participating extensively In the
war. The submarine program is mak
ing more rapid progress than the ship,
building program. For these reasons
the federal government is putting tho
building of ships as the primary patri
otic duty of the people of the country,
and urging every person who can aid
iu the work io take It up with as much
reverence antl as much sense of duty.
'as if they wejre enlisting in the army.

In the emergency every man who
has any meohanical or artisan skill
whatever is being adapted to some part
of ship construction, wherever he de
sires to work. It has been necessary
to ,t each labor to do classes of work It
has,nevr undertaken before. All the
facilities for such instruction are be
ing provided by the ship yards, the
government, and state, and men arc

of employment never presented before

County Commissioner Grant Shidler
informed the Signal to some extent in
regard to tho proposed road building
to be done by the Fedeial government
iu Webster county. About 832,000.00
will bo appropriated for Webeter
county to bo expended in the improv
ng of county roads during the next
three years. About live per cent of
this aniouut will bo used between now
and spring in making plans aud speci
fications and advertising for contrac
tors and the like. The government en
gineer is figuring on having every
county ready to begin work simultan
eously next spring. The roads to be
worked in Webster county will begin
at a point north of Hluo Hill where it
will join the Adams county road, From
lilue Hill it will extend south to Kud
Cloud by way of Uowles. Here it wjli
join a road to extend from Guide Rock
to the Franklin county Hue at a polut
directly west of Inavale. The road
will not be planned farther east than
Guide Hock until Nuckolls county so
lects her road.whon tho two counties
can get together nud decido on a moot
ing point 6u the county Hue. Mr.
Shidler says it is his belief that tho
QuideUoek-Red Cloud road will bo
sand graveled owing to tho eas.v access
to sand beds at so many places along
the route. The federal government
requires these roads to be made to n 5
per cent grade, but it is not likely thatl
Webster county will be able to to raauo
such u grade for a thuo, but that is
what wo will eventually have. Quido
