BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Open New Bids On STS UniI Bids opened recently by the board of administration on a pro- posed new building at the Man- dan State Training School were ap- parently low enough to permit the board to award contracts. Bids opened last month exceed- ed the $425,000 maximum appropri- ~ti:on for general contract work on a building which will house ad- ministration facilities and class- roonls. Apparent low bidder on the pro- ject is Lunn Construction Co. of Bismarck, totaling $274,849. The bid was just $51 below that submitted by Froesch]e and Sons, Bismarck con tractors. After addition of architects fees there appears to be a difference of around $15,000 between bids and ap- propriation. H. H. Joos, chairman of the board, said the board would take formal action on the bids this week Tues- day.

Fields were divided on the quarter-section into strips running north and south and the 80-acre I plot into strips running east and west. This will largely eliminate soi'l drifting.

He already has observed some pro- tection from wind and expects to see a lot more when the plantings Steam is used in some barley roll- mg processes so the barley becomes moist enouh that it flattens out but does not crack, break up and pow- der as it tends to do in the dry rolling process.

A tribute to retail sales people |~" Courtesy is the symbol of most retail sales people. It stands for satisfied customers cash in the till and a more sound economic base for all of us. Retail sales people are in North Dakota's "tourist front line'--they come most frequently iri direct con- tact with the thousands of travelers who cross the state each year-they play a highly important part in the big effort to make North Dakota a good host, And when their courtesy turns into a retail sale, it means more tax revenue-for education and welfare-more profits and more salaries. Retail sales people deserve all the recognition we can give them for the job they're doing in making travel in North Dakota more enjoyable for visitors and more profitable for our state and her citizens.
