Remain. rrotesis made by the towns a'nd cities along the present route o£ the Ocean to Ocean highway from De- citur to Indianapolis are viewed with sympathy by Decatur citizens. The proposal to change the route east out of Decatur to follow the new hard road to Danville does not suit Decatur nor its friends to the east and Eoutlieast. \ The present Ocean to Ocean highway is short, straight, direct. That it will*te paved and mad» into a hard road within a short time Is as certain as that the state wide system will bo constructed. It gives a direct east and west route. It serves a territory in which Decatur i« interested for trade reasons. It adds one more to the routes which will divide the heavy traffic which makes use of the highways. There Is no really good reason why trails should be consolidated and traffic congested on a few roads. These cities and towns have been loyal to the present Ocean to_0cean highway for the ten years in which it has been advertised and established. Now that the paving of the route is within sight, even if it is not to be done within ths next year or so, the route should be maintained.
