citizens were awake, however, and
built 76 miles of road to the east line
of San Diego county, over a mountain
range, as a step in the right direction.
But we went further than that. The
citizens of San Diego raised $50,000
more and are now building, approxi
mately, 12 miles of roads in Imperial
county as a donation and to assure ths
citizens of that county our desire for
a closer connection in business and
friendship. Imperial county already
did its part in helping along the good
work, with the result that we secured
the str hway, San Diego to El
Centre, .nanent road with a sub
base of concrete four inches in thick
ness and a top surface of two inches.
The completion of this highway will
give us one of the most delightful
drives in the United States. Where

at this time.
