Half Billion Year ·f Asked For Roads By MARGARET CHASE SMITH \ : TJ.S. Senator From Maine SKOWHEGAN, Me:, Oct. 27.--How.-much does a foot of highway cost the taxpayer? What' is the price tag per yard for the roads'we drive over? Under the national master highway system planned by the bureau of rjublic roads : it would be $390 a foot or $1,J.?0 a'yard for urban roads and $60 a foot or $180 a yard for rural roads. In other words, city roads cost more than six times as much as country roads. Congress has been asked 'to appropriate at least a half billion dollars a.year for the.next 20 or more years at a total cost of .over .11 billion dollars to improve every one of the nearly 38,000 miles of our federal road system. That would .be nearly seven times as great as the present annual rate of road appropriations. Foremost reason given in support of such a program is that the national defense of our country requires it.

Dr. S. W. .Edgecomb, head of the department of horticulture at Utah State' Agricultural college at Logan, Utah, said, "As we continue to work-with the seed producers we are developing more and more a co-operate spirit between the two." _ The conference requested th.at state agricultural extension services assign personnel to, release information, on pollination and practices affecting the industry. It suggested the possibility of including honey plants in the nationwide reseeding program of the division of range reseeding. The conference- also urged . the U. S. department of agriculture to include the position of national agriculturist in the extension bureau. The sessions were attended by more than 200 delegates from 19 states and Canada. ' to meet emergencies. The mill- ; tary establishment says our present roads are so depleted and lacking 1 ; in modern Improvements and design that they could not meet the test of an emergency. Military Did Most Damage" .' Ironically enough, it Is the mi tary establishment that has dc the most to wear our existing roa : 'down. Fortunately, this count was spared from bombing by,tt t enemy during the war. But o roads took a terrific beating fro our own armed forces. Hea' equipment was carried over t roads" constantly. The loads of arm trucks and conveyances were of te far In excess of that for which tf roads were built to support. The r suit was that the roads began. ' crack under the strain.- Repairln them at the time would have save many dollars, but the · war effo Just couldn't spare the strateg materials and the men necessary ' make the needed repairs. I saw this all over our countr during the war when, as a membi of the house naval affairs congest) areas committee, I inspected roai and streets in' most of our key wa centers here at home.

There are indication -that the proposed program woul so improve the roads as to cu down the amount of gasoline an " oil we would use as well .as th wear and tear on the cars. Half a billion 1 dollars a year fo roads is a lot of money. In fac it Is so much that we should paus ' and question what we will gai' or eliminate. The best answe seems to ber "Bottlenecks." Mos of us will agree on getting rid o ·the bottlenecks. For the half billion dollars year, for the $60 to $390 a fqo of road, we are offered definit savings--saving of lives, saving o time, saving of car costs--and, ac :' cording to military authorities, the : potential saving of our country i attacked.
