PAGE II By DENNY HINTON It seems it would be hard for the average layman to estimate the amount of concrete being used at the Washington Corrections Center near Shelton. How many yards would you say had been poured? I don't thir/k most of us would have a very good tdea and tew even a close appox- nnation. BUT AL BARNES could tell you down to the last one-quarter yard or an even smaller degree if you so desired, and where every last drop has gone as well as a mighty close estimate to how much more it will take to finish the project Barnes is the concrete and reinforcing steel inspector at the institution. All cement to be used on the project comes from a plant and sand and gravel pit about a quar- ter-mile down the road toward Dayton from the Corrections Cen- ter. The job of mixing and haul- ing cement for the project is un- der contract to ML Vernon Sand and Gravel Mt. Ve.rnon. Barnes said that "19.354.25 yds. of concrete had been poured to complete the concrete portion of Phase One." ABOUT 8,000 yards of Phase Two concrete, totalina about 50 per cent of second :phase pour- ing, had been poured by last: Fri- day. To be more specific. 7.716.25 yards had been poured at his prev- ious check earlier in the week. ac- cording o Barnes. "Add another 8,000 yards to the second phase plus the total yard- age for Phase One. and you will have the total yards for the entire project." Barues told me, I added and added and added. Before the project is finished ap- proximately 35.354 yards plus of concrete will be poured for it. "TILE CAPACITY to do the job (maximum workmen can use is about 400 yards of concrete a day," he said. "while the capacity of the plant itself is 100 yards per hour." Grapeview Store will not be open  Explaining plant operation, John on Sundays. Sells, chief inspector of the pro- _ ject, said "the gravel is first ex- MASON COUNTY'S ' 1 1 DINEB.

It is then washed and screened through a less than one-inch square screen. The aggregate is then run through a 'dry batch' plant where the sand and gravel are mixed with cement m proper proportions to achieve 'the desired strength," Sells said. THE MIXTURE is conveyed in- to transit mix trucks where wa- ter is added while mixing takes place and it is taken to the job ready for use. There is also a rock crusher to crush oversized rocks if needed, Sells said. Concerning the institution as a whole, the chief inspector said Phase One is "nearing completion" white all Phase Two buildings "need finish work", as well as roads, utilities and the security fences. "The buildings should be ready for occupancy by January 1965," Sells concluded.
