In properly constructed roads would lw $iV>.K«V«W
•rnuaUy: that th*T« wauld be a saving of over
!&&OQi*M in market lnt the \»h<-at crop alone, of
over SU.4OO.<X» in tnarke;i:iß the corn crop and of

preat tie money value of pood roads may appear
to be. it is not «=<• important as ihf- educational

the residents of rural communities, contends Mr.
ZMefaL
Bad roads restrict educational facilities, limit
the rural tree delivery service and prevt-nt tIM
proper development of social life In the jr. Try.
" Good roads permit of prade schools in the coun
try, extend the rural fr<*e delivery autiloa and
check the exodus of ytrang men and vmbcii from
the farm to the city. Already in localities arbara
roads have l>een improved there is a movement
from Hm city to the farm. As a rul<» the fanners
are more wid* awake to the necessity of good
roads thar< the KaMfntn of cities, as> proper high
vcajra affect directly the comfort and prosperity
of the former. This la not a praMen for ■ single
locality, but concerns vitally the states and the
. nation.
Sever*! of the richer Eastern states are enpatred
In extensive improvement of their road systems.
Mary towns are too pool to improve Urn lateral
roads, and must depend entirely on state aid. In
turn, many state? are too poor to carry on the
•work ateoa and require national aid. It appears
reasonable. If r. IMehl arpues. that such aid should
be extended thr'-vic'i state authorities, under na
tional supervision, rather than by tho construc
tion of natfcaal trur.k lines. Motorists and farm
ers, by frequent pood ro.ids conventions, by con
tiruing campaigns of tatktfi and by tudlvidua]
and ©rcanized ttMiltf can brine about sufficient
appropriations by towna, counties, states and the
nation. It is a part of their duty to f»» that these
moneys are expended ■»•=«■'•.-, under competent di
rection, and la accordance with systematic and
well orpanized plans.
The ■jnaaaaa now in operation in the State of N>w
I Tork can be commended highly to many of her
sister states, particularly as to the classification of
roads outside of cities and villages. THese, roads
j are divided into state, county and town roads. The
. stato roads are the main traffic lines connecting
"the. larger centres of population. They comprise 4
per cent of th= total mileape of the state and are
- to b» Baa)Stmef*4 and maintained directly by the
etate and at state expense. Thf- county roads are
-those which form within each county a properly
: developed system of main market roads, taking into
account their use for the purposes of common traffic
and trave.l. Thi-se roads compose about 6 p»r cent
'■ of the total ml'eape of the state and ar« construct
. cd under state supervision and at the joint expense
- of the sta'e, county and town. The town roads
compose the rest of th* roads of the state, con
stituting ••.-■• ■-' of the total mfleava,
They are built and maintained under the direction
of the local authorities, but with Btai» supervision,

The national pood roads board of t:;^ American
Automobile. Association, thlUMgli Its different state
poo<i roads boards- and in 00-operatioii with the.
many local a'itomf>bi!» club pood reads commit
ioif-s. acts aa a LJwailin house on all good roads
problems and complaints. The board furnishes
copies of the most approved pood roa-ds laws to
the BMtoriata in the different states, all of -whom
. are encouraped to ask for pood rcada information
and la register "kick?" directly to the pood roads
boards rather than protest indiscriminately and
unavailingly. All complaints are forwarded to the
appropriate hichway officials In the several states
•where road departments are sufficiently orpanized.
In Itaßtea where there is not sufficient orpaniratlon
statistics are furnished to the resident member of
the pood roads board, and he is urped by co-opera
tion with allied pood roads bodies to stimulate pub
lic aentlmeni to an appreciation of the necessity of
, proper highway laws and proper organization.
The f.rst national pood roads and legislative con
vention called by the American Automobile Asso

Amen<-an Road Makers* Association and the entire
autcimoblle industry, heid in Buffalo last July, was
productive of a better understanding amniH 1 the

fceld this year. All the above mentioned and many
' other good roads orjranizatior.s wili join in this con

all over the country, describing the best method of
proper organization of road bureaus in the sev
eral states. The necessity of adequate national and
state appropriations will be empetaafsed, and the
convention w-JU doubtless urge upon the legislative
representatives Bt Washington and the various

""Why not have an ami'i;ii tour for dub members?**
asks a member of t!,>- Automobile Club of Roches
ter; not a race or a dealers' or manufacturers'
contest, but a to<ir of owner members and their
families, he explain*. It is the right irj^a. and
one which, if brought to the serious attention of in**
prfirxr commttteea in scoree of automobile clubs
tfaroughoul the country, ougfat to be n ' bieatimable
good In broadening the avcraitfl motorist's ideas
of the delights aid sociability of touring.
The riinV'ilty of getting a Inrge club representa
tion, nrd especially of the women and familks of
members, hitherto !,r;s been so marked t ;,at even
toe so-oa!lfd tours are speedily resolved into rac»s.
While hf-ipf';! as showing the endurance of rarious
cars, sociability aa well as personal comfort is
usually reduced to a minimum. The t'-nu>noy of
many club members to do their own touring when
and wh«>r<? tlipy pifaso is, of course, a problem
which the committee planning an enjoyable tour
will have to ta<-k!f>, but there nr« undoubtedly
many of the American Automobile Association
clubs throughout the country where a members*
tour as s'jggest»d by the Rochester club could b»
iuily organized this season, with beneficial results.
