About 3IJs!)odrr BoadM; To th» Eflitor: Slncft the myth about tjie "rail- rbad" engineer locating the State hig^waysfof Missouri- is again being circulated, it occurred to me-that the true story would be interesting. The route of the Kansas Citj- St. Louis highway, known as U. S. route No. 40. is probably responsible for the "railroad" engineer storjr. -: Tta»- general location of the road was made, by Mr. Theodore Gary and Uft associate .on the Missouri Highway CoinmisBion. after their. <^ngineeir^°^ had 'made surveys and (••.stimates orthe cost of constructing pn several routes. The esti- piate* showed that even, with the ^dditionarcost of biiilding spur or branch :r6ads from the present roulfe t6 the towns' and trading Ixenters,-' the construction cost on the present route would be $600,000.00 cheaper than on any other] route.' The ' topography of /Missouri makes it difficult and expensive to locate the State roads;' especially the Kansas City-St. Louis road from town to town. Aftef a consideration of these facts Mr. Gary and his colleagues, none of whom are engineers, "railroad" or: otherwise, ordered tiie constrijction on the present route. | It so happened that none of the i engineers in executive iwsitions. responsible ^or the execution of the Cdinmisaion's.' general order were "railroad" engineers feui all'of them; without exception had been engaged in highway work for many years.: i Sincerely, LEE NOKTZfJER.

Caesar Augu.^tns telis of-the^'three censuses that he decreed. 'The second of these was dated -iiy names of t!ie consuls— in what would now bo called about A. U. S. Since Jesus 'was born not later than B. C. f or 5; and perhaps caf-llcr; and since Heroki was apparently allowed to carry on tho census In Syria after the .lewiiihfashion of tribes and families, 'this seeming discrepancy of a year or two in the crate of the enrollment I.s easily accounted for. Nowhere else than in this autobiography of Augustus, and in the Gospel of Luke, Is there any allusion to this second census by Rome's first emperor.

FOB f l»F( E.WBEB 2.> exact 11 ansJlation of the inscription. .Macredi Biiy had mentioned "censuses" as one of the accomplishments which Augustus' had set down, hut he knew nothing more definite. f>t me quote what I fouii^. after search in the libraries of three continents:— "In ml' sixth con.sulshlp. with .\I. .Agrlppa as my col- •leaKiii'. I.farried out a census of the Riiman people." (The mention of the sixth coiisu!- slilii and of .M. Agrijipa fixes the date as B. C- 2.S.) . . . "X second time, in the con- .'tulship of C. Censorlu.f and C. Asinlus. 1 completed a lustrum for censiLs) without the help of - a colleague Invested with the consular iranerlnm; At this ser6nd lustrum.' 4,2.3S.0«0 Roman citizens were entered on the roils." (This was the Christmas census, and tlie date was about B. C. 8. as we know by the names of tihe cpiiisuls.) "A third time, in the consulate of Sex. Pompeius and Sex. Appralelus. (A. D. 14) 1 completed a lustrum, being in>-ested .with the coitsular im- pejjium, and' having my -son, tibferius Caesar, as my colleague." ThjJs it will be seen that the i "divine". AugusttM really took the cehstls of the Roman people every twenty years. Never, of course, did he stispect Uhc relationship of theses imperial decrees to the fiilfillment of a Jewish prophecy In the remote province of Syria. 'Yet Augustus has his greatest fanie to^y because of a Babe born In Betiilohem during- his re|gn. All of"proud RtJme's majesty was thus put under tribute to the wiiole j world's pew King. Christmas and. World Affairs. Staggering as js the spectacular importance of this long-belated uncovering of the proof of the accuracy of the historical allusion in Luke's Christmas story, it is scarcely more wonderful .than the implied linking up of Christmas to •world affairs. Every student of Christmas 'has pondered the significance of tho Intei^eaving of the NaUvily with the life of the | humble shepherds and inn folk. Here we see how Christmas is jdso involved with governments. Warlike Rome had . an essential part in the coming of the Prince of Peace. Is it not a fair (Eduction from the facts here presented to declare that the international as -| pects of t7hristmas should be stressed?
