Road Building Shunned
By Larger Contractors
Politics, Narrow Business Practices and Petty Con
tract Restrictions Are Objectional to Construc
tion Managers of Large Affairs.
By C. S. HILL.
Associate ' Editor, "Engineering News
Record." Roadbuildlng Is now the largest single
task before the construction Industry ot
the United States. Unless the leaders of
this Industry ss well aa ths rank and
file of contractors who have for the
most part, and also most capably per
formed the lesser tasks of receding road
programs, shall array themselves with
federal stats and community officials to
advance this task, Its accomplishment
will be retarded. How large construction
organizations regard road construction as
an opportunity for employment Is, there
fore, a question of vital importance. Ths
answer, as It appears after careful In
quiry and conferences with directors ot
such organizations, Is presented In the
article and discussion which follow.
To expedite the enormous pro-
gram ot construction wnicn con
fronts them, public road officials
need to enlist the services of large
oreanizations which heretofore
have perceived nothing that offerer
profitable occupation of their re
sources in the small, isolated, con
tract method of doing road work.
A favorable conjunction of circum
stances has placed these contracts
for a time at the call of road offi
cials. Large hydraulic develop
mentst and heavy railway, bridge
and foundattion work have been
stopped. Until they start again,
contractors who have looked to
them for employment will turn to
road work. It depends upon the
acumen of road officials whether
they continue in road work. Can
didly, the likelihood that they will
is not too promising.
Road Work Temporary.
Large contracting organizations
cannot be permitted interested
iii'rOad construction, unless they
can be assured contracts of suffi
cient magnitude to command their
lull resources, and unless they be
accorded the broadminded con
sideration in road work to which
they have been accustomed in work
tor private- corporations. vvuu
these inducements lacking, those
large contractors who have for the
moment exhibited an interest in
road construction will withdraw to
their old lines of enterprise as soon
as bridge, railway, foundation work
and kindred of heavy construction
resume their ore-war activity.
Little has been done anywhere,
toward defining the new conditions
which mast be created in business
relationship between contractors
and highway officials. Diplomacy
and. oerhaos. to some extent, deiv
cacv. have kept contractors from
Contractors who have grown
great through successful construc
tion foe private industries are con
sidered and treated by those inter
ests as experts in construction and
as men of affairs. The master-and-
servant relationship has disappeared
and in its place has grown some
thing akin to the relationship of
partners in a mutual enterprise. A
certain flexibility is tacitly recog
nized factor of any formal agree
ment into which owner and contrac
tor may enter. Cognizance is given
bv both to possibilities which may
readily arise and which may change
the complexion of an agreement,
and both stand prepared to concede
modifications in prices and require
ments where they are demanded by
fair dealing and mutual justice.
Honesty of intention is conceded
by both parties to the agreement,
and meticibus prescriptions to pre
vent either from overreaching the
other are largely discarded.
These statements do not picture
an imaginary relationship; it exists
in its fullest measure between many
well known contractors and their
clients. All unusually successful
contractors enjoy this relationship
in great measure. That they do, and
that the advantage is real, is evi
denced by the fact that these con
tractors will generally bid lower on
private than they will on public
Stress is laid on this relationship
between the large construction or
ganization and its private-work cli
ents, because it has an important
bearing on the task of enlisting the
service of these organizations m the
road-construction industry. They
are not greatly attracted by the op
portunity as they appraise it. some
of the reasons, as given by contrac
tors, can be briefed as follows:
Road constructions has brought
too many hardships upon contract
ing in the past few years. It has
been directed with too little active
sympathy with the contractor's dif
Too ereat willingness has been
shown to take advantage, at the ex
pense of the .contractor, of a rising
price and wage market.
The practice of calling for bids
merely to try out the market, with
no intention of awarding contracts,
is too common.
There is too common neglect to
state them when limiting prices
Too great stress has been laid
upon possibilities of dishonesty.
Bludgeon clauses are too many in
road specifications. Low prices
often overshadow contracting ex
perience and financial ability.
Too many road departments fiave
attained reputation" for "break

proved by example. There are too
many to permit full elaboration of
each, but) it is worth while to con
sider a few and show how the large
contracting organization, whose en
try into road construction is being
considered, is reacting to their in
fluence. Bludgeon clauses are perhaps no
more common in road specifications
than they are in the specifications
for other public works, but they are
frequent. That such a meaning of
these clauses is intended will be
denied. Consider, however, this
clause: "Portions of the pavement
showing voids in the concrete after
finishing and removal of the side
forms shall be rejected." Beyond
doubt the engineers who wrote this
clause intend, a fair and reasonable
judgment on porous spots in the
pavement edge. What, however, was
the practical effect of the clause on
the large construction organizations
which bid on this specification?
One firm did this: It assumed that
existence of a porous spot entailed
the removal of a day's run and
made its estimates in accordance
with this assumption. More broad
ly, the effect is this: Contractors
who have built up a great business
by honest workmanship, and who
are accustomed to have their hon
esty conceded by managers of large
enterprises, resent such clauses as
ndicative of an assumed necessity
to prevent cheating, and regard
them as convenient weapons in the
hands of engineers and inspectors
for holding up the work and im
posing needless penalties.
Another reason why the large
contracting organization , regards
road-work with indifference when
other work is to be had is that
price has too great weight with the
public roads official. If any bid
der's price is right and his bonds
are unquestionable, he obtains the
work, no mater how unfavorable he
may compare with the large organ
ization in reliability" equipment, re
sources and all else which ordinar
ily are held to be assurance of a
successful business transaction. No
doubt, the road official is largely
the slave of the law in this matter,
but this does not alter the facts nor
their effect on the large contractor.
He demands a fair profit for his
work, because he expects to put all
his resources behind his price , that
the purchaser shall get what he has
asked for in quality and speed of
construction. This guarantee he con
siders worth paying for, and he has
small patience with the kind of
client who shops about for the low
est bidder and trusts to the security
of his legal hold on the bidder to
obtain acceptable work.
It is, perhaps, not a generous
thought, but the large contractor
wonders if the road official is not
just now inquiring whether, in some
way, he cannot unload his own bur
den of rising prices on the contrac
tor. A great many road projects for
which the people have appropriated
money were predicated on pre-war
prices. Now the road officials find
that they cannot deliver the mile

ages promised. Their attacks on the
price levels of materials have failed
to obtain reductions. Shopping
about for low bids is a possible way
out of the dilemma in which they
have been involved. Contractors
are free to impute to the road of
ficial this disposition to shift his
burden, and the thought does not
add inducement to road contracting
as an opportunity for the large con
struction organization to extend its
Requires Big Outlay.
Large construction firms, when
they make bids, demand reasonable
assurance that it has been definitely
decided to award contracts and to
award them promptly. An occur
rence of recent date illustrates what
happens too often. Bids were called
for and received on a job amounting
to about $150,000. A well known,
large company was the low bidder
and expected the award of the work.
Later it was learned that the deci
sion to proceed with the improve
ment had not been definite, and,
when the prices were seen, the road
officials concluded that they "would
not go ahead at present." In other
cases limiting prices are determined
but are not published in advance.
The reaction of large construction
companies to experiences of this
kind is fairly indicated by one which
asserted that it was "becoming dis
gusted with the whole road game."
Most of the large construction
companies which contemplate em
barking on road construction expect
to equip themselves on a large scale.
A season's work will not pay them
for the investment which they con
template; they must see ahead a
number of years of activity. To be
specific, one large organization in
estimating for a recent letting fig
ured upon spreading its original
plant outlay over five years. It
could not otherwise have named a
price which would have had a chance
of being accepted. Contractors who
plan in this farsighted manner are
the kind wanted in road contracting,
but thev franklv assert that they
find little encouragement in the at
titude of road officials, for their
broad planning road construction
plant is a special plant. Few of its
units are stock equipment of the
general contractor who does rail
road or heavy industrial work. He
must see the opportunity for con
tinuous, profitable road contracting,
or he cannot afford to invest in the
special plant required.
Officials Must Change.
Demonstration need not be car
ried further. If highway officials
wish to enlist large general con
tractors in road construction, they
can do so. Lacking normal outlets
for action, these contractors are
seeking opportunities in road con
struction. They will, for th'e mo
ment, submit to the handicaps of
road -contracting. But if the road
officials wish to retain these large
organizations among the contractors
at his command in prosecuting his
large construction program, he
must clear away the indictment
which they have drawn against his
methods. Let us be clear at this
point. These large construction
companies are not supplicating the
road official to change his methods
in their behalf. Indeed, they are,
personally, very little concerned
about his reform. Until he reforms,
however, they shun extensive busi
ness transactions with him.
Suspected anxiety on the part of
large contracting organizations to
embark in road construction cannot
be capitalized by road officials.
There is not such anxiety. These
organizations regard road construe-

Willard and Dempsey Go
Several Fast Rounds With
Their Sparring Partners.
Toledo, June 29. Training before
throngs of spectators which crowd
ed their enclosures to capacity.
Willard and Dempsey put in an ac
tive afternoon in preparation for
their championship battle. The title
holder performed in a more impres
sive manner than has been the case
during the past few days. He boxed
five three-rainute and one two-minute
rounds with his sparring part
ners, Monahan and Hempel.
Against Hempel, Willard showed
flashes of speedy footwork and duck
ing which recalled the days when he
was training for Johnson. In addi
tion to his snappy left jab, he used
a right swing and uppercut repeated
ly and several times had Hempel
unsteady on his feet. The real work
out came when he faced Monahan,
who opened a cut over Willard's left
eye in the first round and drew blood
from the champion's lips in the sec
ond. The sight of blood on Wil
lard's face brought a gasp from the
gathering, but an examination
showeed the cut was supeerficial and
the bleeding was quickly stopped.
Dempsey boxed six rounds, taking
on his sparring partners, laie, Ja
maica Kid and Jock Malone a round
at a time in rotation. Against Tate
he devoted much of his attack to the
negro's body and landed some hard
smashes. Speed had the call when
Dempsey faced Malone and the pair
boxed and slugged like lightweights.
Martin Delaney of the Chicago Ath
letic association considered for many
years an excellent judge of athletes
was surprised at Willard's condition.
Delaney examined the champion be

opinion of the contractors inter
viewed' the road official can pro
ceed with success toward enlisting
these organizations in road con
struction if he will: (1) decide defin
itely before bids are asked that con
tracts are to be awarded, and then
make awards promptly; (2) give
weight to the contractor's resources
and reputation for efficient work, in
stead of letting low price control;
(3) adopt the practice of private in
dustries in dealing with the con
tractor on a fair-price, good con
struction basis, and (4) eradicate the
practice of binding the contractor to
honesty with meticulous, punitive
restrictions, readily capable of being
used unfairly against the contractor.
