PHOENIX, April 26. The Bank-

197 miles over the borderland route
between Lordsburg and Los Ange

thusiastic over the prospect of prov
ing the superior advantages of this
highway to tourist travel through
The air-line route is in reality a
continuation of the so-called Sunkist
route between Los Angeles and
Phoenix, via Blythe,' Ehrenburg
ferry, Salome, and Buckeye. From
Phoenix eastward the travel would
continue over the Superior-Miami
highway to Globe, then to Safford,
Duncan and Lordsburg, at which
point it would make direct connec
tions with El Paso. The road from
Phoenix to Safford is already desig
nated a state highway, with much
of the improvement completed. Be
tween Safford and Duncan, a distance
of 34 miles, county forces are im
proving the road and have placed in
first class condition all but 10 miles.
A splendid desert road now ocn
