The primary grades presented an operetta, "The Lost Doll," and the upper grades presented a Nativity pageant. James Henderson County Gets 30 Miles of 'Greatest Road 1 Construction of the Austin Belt Line and Interstate freeway 891 through Mower County ii ptrt of the biggest construction project in the history of the United States $50 billion national freeway system which will link 209 American cities over 50,000 population with 41,000 miles of multiple-lane freeway. Minnesota will have 930 miles of this linkage at a cost of between a half million and $2 million dot- lars per mile, according to figures released by the State High* way Dept. to County Engineer G. Everett Carlson. The Mower County mileage will be approximately 30, Carlson said. U. S. Fays 90 Per Cent This Minnesota portion of the 13-year project will cost about a billion dollars with the federal government paying $829,600,000, or 90 per cent. All arteries in the system will provide limited access with no crossing intersections. There will be no gas stations or other commercial business along the right- of-way, but a system of signs for turnoffs to obtain gas, food, lodging and other services is being worked out. Three maximum speeds will range from SO to 70 milef an hour, depending on the terrain and th'» proximity of an urban area. Raised by Special Taxes Although the total eost of tli* program is tremendous, the 90 per cent federal share of the cost will be raised through taxes on gasoline, tires, recapping rubber and truck and bus permit sales. When the program was passed as the National Highway Act of 1958, it was found that two-thirdi of the expense of the 13-year project would be carried by taxes then already in effect. Thus the Herculean project will cost each motorist about |9 annually. The interstate system will be th« safest auto travel system yet devised in the United States. Ao. cording to safety engineer the muU tiple lane system will cut the U. S. traffic death toll by at least 3,500 a year.
