PAUL, Feb. 27. UP)--Minnesota can reach a point of 75 per cent adequately Jimproved highways and thereby catch up on increasing traffic demands, Charles M. Babcock, state highway commission, said today in stressing needs for a bond issue for an extensive paving program. The state highway commissioner spoke before delegates attending a meeting of the Minnesota association of county commissioners here today v He traced expansion of the highway system in Minnesota, present needs and said that an increase in gasoline taxes would not help the unemployment situation in the state in 1931. Program to Be Increased. The 1931 paving program will be further increased if the pendiD" bond bill now before the state legislature is approved, Mr. Babcock declared. If this bill is not passed the 1932 program will have to be greatly curtailed, he continued, in that there will be on balance left then from the refunding bond program sanctioned by the 1929 legislature. "However, we hope that Minnesota will see a forward stride in pav- ing from now on. The refunding bond bill passed by the last legislature, together with a $1,400,000 increase in federal aid made it possible for us to pave 286 miles in 1930. Reduce Maintenance Bill. "The paving of many of the routes carrying the heaviest traffic has enabled us to reduce our maintenance bill. If just half of 'the ?37,000,000 we have spent for maintenance in the last 10 years could have gone into construction, we would now have more than 2,000 miles of pavement," he said. "For 1933 we will also be able to devote more funds to paving than in the past. Some of the benefits of the refunding bond bill will be carried over into this year. Then, in addition to the increase in the regular federal aid, we arc this year receiving a special allotment of ?2,250,000 as our share of the unemployment relief fund voted by congress."
