FORD & MAC CREA. Consulting Engineers. The effectiveness of tile tremen- dons antount of developntent and im- provement work whicil has been nn- dertaken in Arkansas during the past two decades has been due in great- est measure to the splendid abilities of. the local technical experts.

They are equipped for en- gineering and directing .work of all kinds, including the preparation of plans and specifications, construction snperintendents, railway construction and location, levees road iml)rove- luents, paving, sewers, water works and irrigation. That they have won the complete confidence of the pub- lic it: a most difficult tield of work is attested by the fact that, although they have already been established over two years, they have already been entrusted with a nmnber of very large and important engineering jobs, uot to lnention a host of smaller ones. One of tile intportant engineering projects now Broposed in Arkansas --the building of the Village Creek and White River levee in Jackson and Woodruff counties--has been awarded to this tirm. They were notified some weeks past by the Board of Directors of tile levee dis- trict, whose offices are at Newport. Work will begin as soon as possible.

They are at present retained as consnlting and supervising en- gineers of Gaines street district, a total of twenty-nine blocks, as well as several other districts.
