Billboard Battle Conte Urges Massachusetts Act Fast to Save Beauty Congress has made it easier for states to enter into compacts with the federal government to keep billboards back 600 feet from the roads being built under th« federal highway program, and Cong. Silvio O. Conte of Pittsfield believes Massachusetts, one of the hold-outs until now, ought to act promptly to protect its roadside beauty. 'It is absolutely essential for the beauty of our highway system, and to prevent a honkey- tonk state and nation," the congressman says in a report to constituents, "that all states enter into this agreement. 'This would seem to me particularly important for the commonwealth of Massachusetts with its wealth of historical and natural beauty. We have a moral responsibility to keep our state, particularly our beautiful Berkshires, from becoming a cluttered billboard honkey-tonk," The original Federal Highway Act offered a premium in road grants to states which contracted with the U.S. government to adopt legislation itiat would ban billboards within 600 feet of the Ight of way of any new road uilt under the act. The amendments adopted last week extend lo July 1, 1965, the dale by which tales must enter into such agreements with the federal govern- nent and, Cong. Conte said, in- lude provisions "which will help tales to enter into agreements." Under the Federal Aid Highway .cl as originally passed, the I.S. government puts up 90 per :ent and the stales 10 per cent if I he cost of the new road sys- em. pLORINI'S Established 1920 Take Horn* SPAGHETTI AND MEAT BALLS v 95e SPAGHETTI SAUCE 95c qf.
