The company has undertaken to export from that locality a certain quantity of material. It is noticeable that the annual shipments of gypsum will increase from 80,000 tons to approximately 500,000 tons. During the 1938 shipping season the. National Gypsum Company shipped over 81,000 tons of gypsum rock, and the company itself has expended over $58,000 on the maintenance and operation of that place. The reason for the increase in the vote is that they propose to use larger boats to ship their material. The matter is vague in my mind, but my recollection is that this company has given a guarantee to the government by way of bond that they will ship a certain amount of material, and if not, they will pay half of the expense of that development.
