Topeka, Dec. 21 (AP)—Commissioners of various counties ajj- peared .before the Stale higli^way comniisslou today to discuss their plans for road construction in 1928 but no definite decision had been announced by the highway commission as to the distribution by routes, projects and counties of the $3,600,000 available, sute and federal; aid funds.' That there was still a chance that the commission would be able to divide the funds so as to pro-; vide the completion of U. S. No. 40; east and west cross-state highway.; and U. S. Xos. 73 aiid 81, north and south cross-state routes, was stated by John W. Gardner, state highway director. Director Gardner said the commission probably would allot sufficient money tO: complete remaining gaps In the! three routes, but that on some of the projects the contractors proliably would not be able to complete the work n 1928.
