US. Incorporates 2,102 Miles of Toll Highways Into Big Network WASHINGTON (B-The Bureau of Pujjlife' Roads, squeezed between rising costs and declining income, daj? i n c o r porated 2,102 ..,(>fjtoli roads in 15 states into .Jse 'iil.bbO-rnile network of interstate and defense highways. It will now be up, to Congress to decide whether tiff government should purchase the roads and make them toll-free, or let the states continue to collect the rolls and maintain the highways. The latter course seems the more likely, at least for the time being. The nation's vast road building project is on a pay-as-you-go basis, and there just isn't enough in the highway trust fund to pay off the billions of dollars in bonds floated by the states to construct the toll roads. The highway trust fund, supported by special highway users' taxes on gasoline, tires, etc., is falling short of its expected income. Furthermore, rising prices have boosted the original cost estimate of 27*s billion dollars for the 6 Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa Wednesday, Aug. 21, 1957 I entire 41,000-mile network by at j least three billion dollars. I The Public Roads Bureau is now [preparing a detailed report for | Congress, outlining the possible [costs of buying up the toll roads. • It is possible Congress will decide ; part of the 2,102 miles should be i purchased and the remainder left in state hands for the time being. The Highway Act of 1956 envisaged four-lane, toll-free, limi- | ted- access highways criss-cross- j ing the nation and connecting 90 ; per cent of the cities of 50,000 or | more population. The network was | expected to be completed in 13-15; I years but it now appears 16 years j j will be a minimum. | ! And. unless revenues perk up' and costs remain stable, the toll roads may be a part of the system for years to come. The 2,102 miles incorporated into ; the interstate and defense system j I Wednesday include 1,837 miles now 'open to traffic. ' The routes approved include all or major protions of the New York Thruway, of turnpikes in Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, New. Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania, and of Florida's Sunshine State Parkway. In addition, a small part of the New Jersey Turnpike and still incomplete toll roads in Connecticut, Illinois and Virginia were included. The action to incoporate the toll roads into the interstate system was taken at the request of the various state highway departments. The toll roads now in operation which were approved for inclusion in the interstate system included: Kansas Turnpike, 184 miles, from Kansas City to Topeka, and from Emporia to the Oklahoma state line 'the entire route except the Topeka-Emporia section).

Atom Power Bill Sent to White House WASHINGTON (rTr— Congress has passed and sent tri the White House a 352-million-dollar atomic energy construction bill. It includes authorization for a program of government-built atomic power reactors opposed by the administration. Actual funds for projects authorized under the measure will be appropriated in a separate money bill. Both houses passed the compromise bill on voice votes Tuesday. Most of the projects in the bill are noncontroversial, consisting of regular construction planned by the Atomic Energy Commission. Senate Democrats sponsored the reactor program, which was reduced in scope in the compromise. As finally passed, the bill provides three million dollars each for planning two reactors—one at Hanford, Wash., and one at Arco, Idaho—and 15 millions for building an experimental plutonium recycle reactor at Hanford. The measure also orders AEC to build small reactors for three rural power cooperatives and a municipal power group, and to make steam available to them at a price based on the cost in using conventional fuels. These would be built at Piqua, Ohio; Hershey, Mich.; Elk River, Minn., and Chugach, Alaska. Even in the final Senate discussion of the bill, there was disagreement between. Democrats and Republicans as to the meaning of the compromise version. Sen. Jackson (D-Wash), a member of the Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee, said Congress was entitled to assume the AEC would proceed in good faith to design and engineer the Arco and Hanford projects. Jackson said it was his view AEC must get ready to build the reactors and next year ask for the funds to proceed with construction. Sen. Hickenlooper (R-Iowa) said ! he did not agree. He said he did j not believe AEC was under any • commitment to ask for funds if it i found the projects unfeasible. "PERSONALITY" ... "Sheer personality" and nothing else is what made Francis X.

By EDDY GILMORE ' LONDON WMPrincess Margaret became 27 Wednesday with no prospective husband in sight but with plenty of advice that it's not too late to hope. Completely recovered from a cold, the pretty princess celebrated her birthday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. But here in London, advisers to the lovelorn in the newspapors chorused feminine advice to the most eligible girl in the world that 27 is not too old to abandon hope. One lady writer pointed out that a former occupant of Princess Margaret's Clarence House home —Princess Patricia of Connaught —didn't ankle down the aisle until she was 33. Then it was with a commoner, a royal naval officer who became Sir Alexander Ramsay. Another lady writer put it this way: "Several of our own royal ladies married later than was once customary. The Duchess of Gloucester was 33, the Duchess of Kent 27 and the late Queen Mary married when she was a month away from her 27th birthday." Still another, comforting Margaret with the observation that English girls age very slowly, volunteered this philosophy: "In the mild, merciful mists of England where happily—unlike the Mediterranean countries—there is no brazen sunshine to make a woman mature at 15 and an old crone at 30, the late 20's are often a time when a woman is at her best." There can be little doubt about Margaret's beaut;- and charm at 27. She has a pair of fluttery blue eyes, long lashes, a movie star's figure, talent, humor and a cheerful heart. Also, she's rich in her own right. However, the circle of eligible young men around the most eligible young woman is getting smaller and smaller. Each year one or more get married. But not to Margaret. Her prince charming, Group Capt. Peter Townsend, the man whose love she rejected for the sake of duty, is still unwed. And, as one of the. lovelorn ad versers wrote—Princess Pat waited 10 years before she married her commoner. Margaret turned down Townsend two years ago. At least 15 of the dashing—and some not so dashing—young men of the Princess Margaret set have married in the last 10 years. Your Perfect Holiday!
