comodation of about US persona, H. C.
McCord of Lincoln wilt preslde-aod act as
toast master. .
Massphrey rails te Appear.
Richard L. Humphrey, president of the
National Cement Users association, was
slated to make an address before the
convention. He was delayed, however, and
was unable to appear.
The morning session was the most
Interesting of any during the convention.
C. A. P. Turner, "father of the Turner
system of reinforced concrete construc
tion.' addressed the convention on rein
forced concrete construction and he made
his remarks doubly Interesting by the
use of stereoptlcon slides, showing hugs
buildings In the course of construction.
The John Deere building here was con
structed on Turner principles, as was the
Henshaw hotel. The speaker told of the
methods of cement construction and of
the materials that bring ths best results
His remarks were largely technical and
.-ertalned mostly to different qualities
of construction material, but from the
convention's point of view, it was an en
lightening feature-of the meeting.
Ceadra Talks ea Sand.
Mr. Turner was followed by Prof. Con
dra of the University of Nebraska. Prof.
Condra Is In charge of the physical
geography classes and Is well acquainted
with geographical conditions In this
state. He chose for his subject "Sand and
Gravel Resources of Nebraska."
"Nebraska Is one of the best states In
the union for gravel and sand purposes,
besides being a large farm state. The
sand and gravel here. I the best possible
for construction purposes and Is easy to
set at These two conditions are the
most Important. In many states sand
and gravel must be Imported for build
ing purposes, but In Nebraska we find
that It la so easy to get and of such
fine quality that we can furnish neigh
boring states with K."
Prof. Condra then analysed the" various
sands la the state. Ho said that quarts
was plentiful everywhere and that other
elements that go to make durable sand
are found In plenty.
W. F. Roney of Grand bland told of
the introduction of cement paving in his
lty. and ha said that thus tar eemsnt as
paving material was proving to be highly
successful. Orand Island has a number
of streets that are paved with cement
and Mr. Roney says that It wlD sot be
long before the dty council there will
realise the value of cement and pave all
' cf the streets with It
The paper on "Cement Silo Construc
tion," which waa to have been read yes
terday by If. L. King of Ames. Is,, was
read before the convention. Mr. L B.
Watenpeugh of Western, Neb., closed the
session with a brief talk on 'The Future
of the Organisation." He said that ce
ment and concrete was no longer an ex
periment but a material that Is known
to be aa Important factor In construction
work. He said that an organization such
as the Nebraska Cement Users' associa
tion does much for the advancement of
scientific concrete and cement construc
tion, and he said that any advancement
la concrete science that might be made
would be due to organisations such as
the Nebraska association.

ready to take out their second papers.
Over twenty-five were examined Thurs

Some of the Instances where the appli
