I was very fond of Charlie Owens,
but Charlie was not much to cling
to, and though ho loved me I was un
willing to marry him because I feared
that poverty would fly In at the door
and at the same time love would fly
out at the window.
If I was stupid I had sense enough
to turn Chnrllo down. But there my
sense ended. I was bound to find
someone to cling to, and since I knew

to proceed with his suit until he could
make mo comfortable, so I did not drop
him. Besides, his letters were delight

One day on meeting him on the street
I asked him why he did not come to

I laughed at lilm. calling him Johnny

on expert at the national capital made
tho following statement:
"Gradually the state has made Itself
a compelling factor In the handling of
local road problems and, as a logical
sequence, tho federal government, flrst
through educational activity nnd later
by the Ananclal aid provided by tho
federal aid law, has made Itself a
powerful factor In tho working out of
the state highway problems. The next
logical step follows the same course
which has been pursued by the state
governments, namely, tho broadening
of federal participation to provide for
the establishment of a system of na
This policy can be put Into effect
without disturbance of existing organ
isations, without providing now means
of finance and with but little change
In existing laws. The process would
logically take a course somewhat as
"1. The stato highway departments
and tho federal offlco of public roads
would make an Initial selection from
existing state highway systems of
those highways which are of Interstate

approved by congress, with the re
quirement that federal funds be ap

a specified date.
"3. The federal aid should bo ex

struction, as the national system of
highways should have for all tlmo a
close relationship with the federal government.

made plans for utilizing the aid grant

could continue to be applied ns now

flrst two years are already available
and considerable time necessnry must

could be laid out and made ready for

"In all probability the new schema
would come Into effect ns an extension
of the present federal aid road net."
WHY FAMILY MOVED TO TOWN
Compelled to Make Chanae Because of
Poor Schools and Bad Roads
Remedy for Poverty.
"Why don't they go on to a farm?
Is tho question with which many men
dismiss from their minds the story of
some poverty-stricken family. Tho(
chances are five to one that that some
family was Induced to move to town
because of poor schools and poor roads
In tho country. The remedy for much
of tho poverty now In our town3 Is
good roads and good schools la the
country. Why should not country
schools be given tho same attention
given city and town schools? Why
should not tho children bo permitted t.
go to them over good roads with dry
feet, Instead of wading through mu
and water? Good roads will mako tho
country a better place In which to live.
