Missouri cities touched by the
state primary, federal primary and
State secondary roads a? planned in
,1110 engineer's recommendations to
the State Highway Commission dc
not have to match dollars with the
state in the road expenditures being
made in their district, Chief Engi
neer B. H. Piepmier of the State
Highway 'Department declares in an
interview in the Missouri State Jorr
"I believe a large number of lead
ing citizens have inferred that they
will be required to put up money to
meet the State in the building of the
State and federal primary roads. Th'e
impression is erroneous, Elepmeier
explains, as there is no such provis
ion in the laws under which the
$00,000,000 highway improvement
program was authorized.
Slightly less than half of the
$60,000000 will be placed in the
primary roads recently recommend
ed to the commission by the engi
neers. Hearings are held daily a
the capitol to allow claims to be pre
sented as to why the routings re
commended by the engineers should
The law provids that $20,000,000
may be expended upon the preferred
type highways and in addition to
that there is an added amount of
$6,000 a mile for the primary roads
With 1,500 miles of primary roadt
planned that means $29,000,000 wil
be spent on the better type roads,"
"Thirtyrone million dollars will
be spent on the federal primary and
State secondary roads. These roads
are to be constructed to care for the
traffic in their respective locations
and the money will be expended in
proportion to the traffic requirements
on the various road counties."
The State good roads program will
not be limited to $60,000,000, Piep
meier explains, since there will be
federal aid each year. The federal
aid will be distributed to the State
primary and to the counties as pre
scribed in the law in the same ratio
as the State's $60,000,000 is dis
tricted, he said.
The federal aid, Piepmeier esti
mates, will range between one and a
half million and two million dol
lars annually, "with a possibility of
larger appropriations by the feder.il
government for the State road
Arrangements are already being
made to sell the State bonds and the
highway commission is proceeding tc
let contracts this fall on the State
primary, federal primary and State
secondary roads, according to the
State chief's engineer.
"Two or three months of work can
be done this fall preparatory to pav
ing next year and the year follow
ing," Piepmeir believes.

QUESTION AS TO REED'S
RIGHT TO CONVENTION SEAT
KANSAS CITY, .Mo., Auk. 24. Some
question bus been rulseil whether Sen
ator Janie.s A. Heed will be entitled by
law to u seat In the Dumoeratlc State
Convention, at Excelsior KpriiiKS, Sept.
12. His friends expressed the hope
he would le present on the convention
floor to lead the IlKht to incorporate
his Ideas into the platfotm on which
Senntor Iteed and the State candidates
will run in the November election. The
law admits to membership In the con
vention State committeemen, candi
dates for the State Lesislaturo, nnd
candidates for the Congress. J. G. L.
Harvey, leeed'B law partner, said today
he had not Investigated the question
thoroughly, but expressed the opinion
that a fair Interpretation of the law
would admit Senator Heed under the
general terms of Congressman.
Senator Heed will attend the con
vention, according to his present plans
