will require a year or more.
Seeks Beauty With Utility
Lewis S. Sadler is the most prac
tical idealist in tho State. He proposes
both to build and to beautify. State
highways, according to his conception.
Should be something more than cement
roads. They should bo tree-bordered
avenues along which it will be a delight
for motorists to ride.
what Commissioner Sndler already
has accomplished is an index of what
he proposes for the future.
When he assumed chargo of the High
way Department at tho beginning of
Governor Sprout's term, there wero 141
miles of concrete roads in uso In the
Today there arc 1200 miles of them.
By the end of 1022. when the Com
missioner' term of office with the Ad
ministration expires, there will be 2000
, Already this year contracts have beeu
Igned for 1000 miles of concrete roads.
A' fact apparent lo every one man
dated or familiar with the accomplish
mrnts of the department, Is that the
Commissioner and his operative forces
are building a monument for the Sprpul
Administration. '
Pennsylvania's fame in this'respect
is country-wide. "

Wilson Now Recovering
Use of Paralyzed Limbs
Convalescence Marked by Entering Auto
Unassisted Rumor Democrats Plan to

Slnff Correspondent Krvnlnr Tulille I.ftUr
Cowrioht, 1)31, by Public Ltiotr Compatii
Washington, Sept. 0. Authentic in
formation about the present stale of
ex-President Wilson' health is now
available. He is lo be seen riding about
Washington, osperlnlly about. Knrk
Creek Park, in his automobile. And he
looks much hotter than he did when he
retired from the pre'siderrcy.
A rumor circulated bore that ho had
recovered the use of bis arm and leg,
which uorc paralyzed as a result of his
breakdown two years ago.
This report aroe from the following
circumstances: Mr. Wilson was nbout
to-'sfart, recently, upon one of his auto
mobile rides. Tho greatest care is taken
to prevent his falllnc in ills movements
; nbout the house and to and from his
, Tohiclc. Accordingly nn nttendnnt is
i always at his ilde. The shock of a fall
i would bo certain to check his slow re
covery and perhaps bring vi a now
crisis in his illness. '
On this occasion ns Mr. Wilson and !
his attendant reached tho car it v as i
discovered that somethins had been for-
gotten nnd the attendant went back into
the house to repair tho mistake, leav
ing Mr. Wilson standing near the car.
Millie he was absent Mr. Wilson ad
anced to tho car and entered it un
aided. This marks the progress Mr.
Wilson has made toward recovery since
March 4.

slowlv nlong the grdTtnd. but could not
rise from a. sitting position nor assume
one unnlded. He could not. moreover,
lift his left foot' from the ground. Ills
method of walking nt that time was
US advance his right foot about ten
.inches and then slowly dms his left
foot after It until it was nearly abreast
of It. Then the right foot Was again
advnneed ten inches and this process
was repeated.
Mr. Wilson's wnlk Is still slow and
uifllcult. Rut he has more use of his
left log than he hnd in the spring.
He can no'v pick up his left
foot from the ground In advancing It.
Rut his walk is still unsteady and in
secure, and It is against his physician's
advice thnr he performed such a feat
as entering his automobile unaided.
The ex-Prosldent is still under tho
constant care of his old physician. Dr.
Carey Ornyson. who has recently modi-
f'ed his treatment in an interesting way. i
When Mr. Wilson left tho White House
there followed a period of groat re-
laxation There were no duties to per-
form. There was nothing to occupy
the mind nnd engage the attention of
the former Chief Magistrate.
Many persons thought this was just
what was needed to promote recovery,

it was felt, would aid in restoration.
