the proposals to be made. It provides :
The war finance corporation is to buy
the railway securities now held by the

After making a trip of inspection of
the present and proposed routes over
the Lincoln Highway between East
gate and Austin with Chief Engineer.
Cottrell and F. O. Booe of the depart
ment of highways, the writer can see
no reason why the present route should
be improved, and many reasons why
the proposed new location should be se
lected and improved. Lest the foundar
tion for the improvement of this fifty-two-mile
section be forgotten, it may
he well to state that the Lincoln High
way Association has placed at the dis
posal of the department of highways
$37,000 to be applied toward the work.
Lander and Churchill counties have
each pledged $30,000 and the remainder
of the amount required will be made
up by state and federal aid.- The esti
mated cost of the ultimate improvement
of the project is about $448,000. How
ever, the immediate construction of sev
enteen miles of the distance and some
maintenance work on the remainder 1
will provide at once ati excellent road
tar superior to that now used by way i
of Newpass.
The present route goes through Al
pine and Newpass canyon. The only
habitation is at Alpine and the New
pass canyon is the striking point for
every stray cloudburst that comes
along. The new route, less expensive
to construct and maintain, will serve a
greater population, pass through a
great cultivated area in Reese River
valley, and the scenery in the Desatoya
range will compare favorably with that
in the western part of the state. An
other point in favor of the new loca
tion is the fact that probably 90 per
cent of the new road will be built on
natural road material, while only 10 per
cent of the present road is so located.
Improvement of the present road would
be an expensive matter and mainte
nance would cost a great sum each

The only objection raised to the new
Carroll Summit route, which will cross
the range at an altitude close to 7,000
feet, is that there is a probability of
snow blocking the road for a short
period each winter. Owing to the fact
that snow blocks nearly every summit
for a portion of the winter, no great
weight can be given the snow argument.
When it is remembered that the trans
state roads -will be used largely by
tourists for the next few years, the
snow condition will be a negligible fac
tor. Whenever travel conditions re
quire that roads be kept open all year it
will be an easy matter, under mainte
nance, to keep travel moving.
A point that has been lost sight of
by the few proponents of the present
location is that Nevada must, above
eveything else, reveal its cultivated
areas. The view from car windows of
overland trains has done more to damn
Nevada in the eyes of the traveling
public than any other factor. Roads
should be built, whenever possible, so
that they will run through irrigated and
cultivated valleys in order that a mis
taken idea may be corrected. Roads so
located will also serve the country
through which they pass and assist in
The new location will call for a road
down and across Reese River valley
and across Smith Creek valley, both of
which are under cultivation and capa
ble of great development. The possi
bili ty of cultivating large areas in
these valleys by artesian wells is
claimed Jo be greater than in any other
section. This alone should be a deter
mining factor, for any improvement
that will directly or indirectly assist in
developing the state is a permanent in
vestment. What will probably become one of
the most famous places on the entire
