Hon. Walter Williams, Dean of
the school of Journalism of the
Missouri University, makes the fol
lowing New Year's wish in the Mis
souri Ruralist: "For the folks on
the farm I wish 1913 to bring bet
ter roads roads hard surfaced,
well-kept, usable the year round.
Better roads mean better rural
schools, with a high school near to
every home; the rival of the rural
church, with the pastor living
among his people; the return of the
evergreen Sunday School; the crea
tion of better markets for farm
products; the removal of the trans
portation tax which bad roads im
pose; tbe more abundant social life
for children and women and men
who dwell upon the farm. Better
roads mean the bringing of the'
town's best to the farmer and of the
farm's best to the town. They mean
making for all the state highways
of material, social, intHIecioal. spir

and more fair, thet all her son3 and
