I.--Secretary Houston, of the Department of Agri- culture,.nas set forth squarely the policy which he thinks should be followed in highway construction during the war. Secretary Houalon says: ."So'ifar as it is practicable to do so, this department will urge the maintenance of the highways already constructed ; the construction and completion of those highways which are vitally important because of their bearing upon the war situation or for the movement of commodities; the postponement of all highway construction, relatively less essential or not based upon important military or economic needs. The department is preparing to suggest to the state highway departments, the preparation of. a schedule of work fc-r the federal aid projects for 191S in Line with this policy." In carrying out the policy this announced there has been sent out by the office of public roads, of-the^Department of Agriculture, schedule forms on which, the states are requested to set forth their proposed federal aid work for the 3918 working season. These schedules call for a. description of each road, the character, quantity and rail haul oJ? the materials to bo used, the probable cost., the amount of federal funds desired, the specific purpose of the impvoverrieut, its bearing upo?. the war situation, and wltat effect a delay of the work until 1919 or later would have. "Vi r ith the information thus assembled and classified, an efficient road construction program is assured. "While it is irn- possble to make any definte statement regarding the transportation of road ! 1 materials, the expectations are ; that i the -transportation situation will be! i improved aud that the shipment of I such materials for essential projects ! can be made. i Road construction ancl maintenance ; in the United States Involve an annual expenditure of some $300,000,000, and there is scarcely a section- of the country that is not seriously affected by a marked disturbance in "road 1 work.
