and Employees.  There will be no gain in employment from the  new 
ASPHALT PLANT.  When asked by DT about lack of revenue when plant 
moved to lower level the Company spokesman said that this was  so 
far  in the future they had not considered it & that  they  would 
put  in  a  new plant & decommission the old. The  new  plant  is 
higher and closer to the village and WH claim will be on valuable
