Sod House Protects Tolna Dam Workers
Tolna, N.D., Nov 18—Use of sod housing as protection for WPA workers solved a problem faced by Foreman W. G. Ward at the Tolna dam. The dam is being constructed at a point where no farm buildings are available for shelter during the noon hour. Lacking funds to buy and transport lumber for sheds, workers recalled use of sod houses in pioneer days. Sod was turned and now the men eat in comfort.
