'The State In this present ciisls must
not take any backward steps In the di

(o forward nnd set an example to less
favored sections In Its broad and gener

their hands to make u rtbourretul and
powerful nation," he said. "Our road
program must bo carried on, not In U
plcayunlsh way or not as a polltlcil
favor, but an n political right for the
people. I see that the present road law
has been criticized by the Highway
Commissioner because It Includes too
many miles of road.
"I do not think it Includes enough
and I villi resist any effort to turn back
upon the townships any or tho mileage
now Included In the road plan. As the
means of "the State will warrant, addi

the boroughs and townships may have
more of their local taes to use on
local Improvements and better schools.
