MY ARE EXPECTED
Convention of Old Trails As
sociation to Be Held Here
WILL DO SOMETHING
Boosters to Urge Building of
New Highway Across the
State at Once.
What promises to be one of the
most important road meetings ever
held in the state will be held here to
morrow, when the Missouri Old Trails
Association convenes in annual ses
sion. It is confidently expected that
this convention will result in the
Immediate future in the building of a
hard-surfaced highway over the Mis
souri Old Trails Route from St Louis
to Kansas City. Tomorrow's conven
tion will not be one of oratory, but a
"do-something" meeting, having as
its object the completion of a cross
state highway, started some five years
ago and Improved to a considerable
extent since then, but which now is
in a condition unfitted for either tour
ist or local travel.
Every county along the route from
the Mississippi River to the Kaw
River has promised to send delegates
to this convention, ready to co-operate
in a concerted movement to raise
funds which, with the state and na
tional money 'now available, will be
used for the construction of a per
manent road. These delegations will
include the mayors of the incorporated
towns, road commissioners and mem
bers of the county courts. Each del
egation will have formed an organiza
tion before reaching here, or fl will
form one after their arrival. The
chairman will report briefly the con
ditions in regard to the road dis
tricts along the route in his county
and what the county Is prepared to do
in building the highway. It is possi
ble, too, that each county will work
out its own method of raising funds
to have the work done, because condi
tions differ in each county, but the
main object will be to get the pledge
that the money will be raised some
way and that-work will be started, just
as soon as it is possible.
E. IV. Stephens May Bo President.
Judge J. M. Lowe, president of the
National Old Trails Association, ar
rived this afternoon to attend the
meeting. The meeting will be called
to order by E. W. Stephens of Colum
bia, vice-president of the national as
sociation. One of the duties of the
convention will be to choose new of
ficers for the state association and
it,is said that Mr. Stephens will 'be
chosen as president to succeed E. J.
McGrew of Lexington, who recently
resigned because of private business.
Mr. Stephens lias been urged 'to ac
cept the office and it is believed that
he will. He has always shown great
interest in the good roads movement,
and especially in the Old Trails Road.
His duties with the State Capitol
Commission are now practically end
ed and members of the association
say that he will have time now to
devote his energies to the work of
completing the highway and that he
will carry on the campaign until it is
No set program for the meeting has
been arranged, but there will be a
talk to the delegates by Judge Lowe,
who now insists that it is up to Mis
souri to complete the road, since the
highway is now a permanent, hard
surfaced road practically all the way
from the Atlantic" Coast to the East
Missouri line. A. C. McKibbin, secre
tary of the State Highway Commis
sion, will also talk to the delegates.
He will tell them how to solve their
problems In each county and just
what they must do to get enough
money from the state to cover one
half of the cost of building the road.
Asks Columbians to Attend.
Mr. Stephens urges that every Co
lumbia man who possibly can at
tend the meeting and show the inter
est that Columbia Is taking in the
project. It not only means much to
the state at large, but to Columbia, he
sas, to have the road built through
here. The meeting w ill be held in the
Boone Tavern. At noon there will be
a special luncheon In the dining room
of the tavern for all of the delegates.
The delegates appointed by E. C. An
derson, president of the Commercial
Club, to attend the meeting, repre
senting Columbia, will be:
Dean Walter Williams, E. Sydney
Stephens, Dean E. J. McCaustland.
Dr. J. B. Cole. Isadore Barth. L. M.
