There is a tendency to substitute the
hip subsidy with a farm subsidy or
rather modulate the character of loans
by loan associations. Kepublieans and
Oemocrats alike seem determined to
render aid where aid is needed, and
where it will be of benefit to 100 per
cent of the people instead of 1 per cent
of the people. Three cheers for our

"Good roads are vital t all sections
of the country," declares John P- Me
Anallen, local dealer in Durant and
Star cars. "The interests of million
of people demand them. Contrary to
the common conception, the wealthy
tourists and truck-using corporations
form only a very small fraction of
those wlro are urging better highway
"Better roads will benefit two great
classes, namely, three and one-half
million farmer who are dependent up
on these automobiles, and" as many
more city-dwelling families with in
comes of less than 1,000.00, who with
the farmers, own two-thirds of all the
"Consider what the combination of
the automobiles and good roads means
to the fnrmer. It gives him access to
the nearby tow ns, nnd thereby er.ds
his isolation. It brings the schools
nearer his children, and shortens the
distance in all his social relations. It
connects his farm and his market.
"When prices are right, he can move
his produce promptly and thereby not
only develop a broader market, but a
more stabilized one. He is no longer
dependent upon railroad connections
and can, therefore, purchase land for
its productiveness and low cost alone.
It gives him more time to work on his
"The city worker of moderate means
enjoys equally decisive advantages.
Ilia car and good roads enable him to
exchage the city congestion for the
health and beauty of the suburbs. A
hundred other valuublw services are
rendered, both for business and social
"Purely aa an investment, better
roads will pay regular and substantial
dividends which every enterprising
community cannot afford to lose. Be
sides, they proclaim the character ot
the section to visitors. The desirabil
