Several factors were said to have, entered Into the governor's decision which Iw has not ycl announced. AmonB them were that a speclnl session would probably- harddly get started before the, lime for the regular session,- and any legislation could not. become effective until too late to aid the sections hurl until spring, that authorizing counties lo Issue bonds for •oiul work would dltrnpt the slate highway program and prove harm- to the permanency of building the Llate road system.
