LOS ANGELES, Dec. 10. Southern
California will have done its share

toward, providing a travelable road
through its territory on the route
of the National Ocean-to-Ocean High
way within sixty days, if the plans
now maturing are carried out. The
officials and engineers of the Los An

to the city yesterday morning and
on Thursday will make their report
to the auxiliary at a special meeting
In the chamber of commerce direc-
tors' office. If this report is adopted
it will mean the immediate beginning .
of work on the Mammoth Wash, the
worst selection of the highway and
the only one, according to the eng -
gineers, that is not now practicable '
for general travel.
While nothing is definite until after .
the Thursday meeting, these matters
seem practically settled as the result '
of the trip over the line made Friday,
Saturday and Sunday last: I

until it is in good condition. This
stretch is only three miles long, and
it is believed $6,000 a mile will make,
it entirely feasible.
That the money remaining after
the Mammoth Wash work is done will
bo spent between Brawley and Yuma, :
as the other sections of the road are J
either already in good condition or
will be taken care of by some other
agency than tho auxiliary.
That no money will go toward im-
proving the Holtville-Sand Hills-Yu-
ma road, as it is believed the other
route eastward from the valley is the
better one. j
These facts were gleaned yesterday
from interviews with the officials and
engineers who went over the road. !

Mammoth Wash Bad Stretch
According to Mr. Mitchell they all
agreed that the most important work;
for Southern California to do is on
the Mammoth Wash, which is a bad
stretch of sand immediately east of
the old beach line, out of Brawley,
and extends to and under the South-
era Pacific railroad crossing near
Mammoth station. The engineers did
not say what the work will cost, but it

that, after leaving Banning, they

exception of a few places between

Long Stretch in Good Shape
The stretch from Fig Tree Johns
to the crossing of the west side main
west of Brawley is declared to be
possible. On this section, broken
volcanic rock, whicli looks like slate,
has been used effectively -over sev
eral bad patches of sand and blue clay
that is found abundantly in the vicin
ity was used as a surface material.
From the west side main, through
Westmoreland to Brawley there' are
about five miles of load road, which
could be very cheaply made good, as
it is all under the irrigation system
of the Imperial Valley and has been
irrigated once. It is now sandy and
rutty, but the supervisors and Brawley
people promise to change this condi
tion at once. East from Brawley
there is practically a boulevard, on
through tho irrigated section; then
comes the beach line and tho Mam
moth Wash. Beyond this bad stretch
che autoists found good, hard foun
dation needing only leveling and the
elimination of some bad washes and
coulees to make it a very fair country
