ATLANTA, On., Nov. 10 -Delegates to
the fourth American Iload Congress, In
session today, are heartily In favor of
tho suggestion of Hohcrt P. Hooper, of
Philadelphia, ex-president of the Ameri
can Automobile Association, that Federal
aid be given n sstrm of highways con
necting every Stute and equal to that
of France.
Almost 5000 ndvocntcs of good roads arc
Attending tho congress All aio en
thusiastic over tho prospect of n well de
veloped chain of highways as outlined by
Mr. Hooper, who said.
"No complete nccount of the good roads
movement In Georgia or any other State
could be given without name mention of
tho p.trt played by nutomubllcH. As thin
means of transportation has ceased to
be the plaything of tho rich, has adapted
Itself to manifold uses nnd has been
brought within tho compnus of men In
moderate circumstances, It has proved a
moro nnd moro Important factor in rond
development. Whenever automobiles
come Into general use In a country, good
ronds nro suro to follow.
'Terhaps wo motorists at times become
unduly optimistic, "But I look forward
to the day when wo ahall have highways
connecting overy State the equal of those
to be found in Franco. Furthermore,
there will bo an exchange of road trav
elers between North nnd South that will
be beneficial nnd educational to both
sections of tho country.
"In no way can we become better ac
quainted than through the Intimate chan
nel of road travel, for then we truly dis
cover that we all are only human be
ings, Interdependent one upon the other
and equally Interested In tho general
welfare of our great country. The South
nnd the North then will be n new South
and North." .
Mr Hooper referred to the Indomitable
courage of the South, which section, ho
said, remains quite prosperous deoplta the
low price of cotton.
Ha explained that the American Auto,
mobile Association believes tho Govern
ment should help the Stnte on their most
important arteries of communication
since tho problem of good roads had be
come national In aspect.
